    Bacon always tastes better and is crunchier in America then it is here...

    I only eat it when i am in America now, don't like UK bacon.
    American bacon is too annoying to be enjoyable. I've always struggled to get a fork into it without it shattering.
    I'm not uncouth so I like to eat it with a fork rather than my fingers.

    Cabbage is almost a pointless vegetable without bacon to add to it to make it good. Fuck cabbage.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I find it comforting to think that there isn't something beyond myself, I'm more than happy for my conciousness to fade away with the rest of my body. I am not absolutely sure this wont change when I'm older but for the moment I have no problem with the idea of just ceasing to exist, it's kind of comforting.

    Cabbage is amazing, take that back. Fried with garlic and onion and smothered in aubergine pesto. God, I'm salivating...

    Wonder if it's relative to contentment in life. Dunno, horses for courses I guess.

    There are a couple of useful things to do with cabbage, red cabbage slow cooked with red wine is ace and I do like coleslaw...actually I do take it back, we get a veg box delivery every week and I think I'm just a bit jaded about cabbage. It has ruined a few lovely sauces because I felt like I had to put it in there to use it up.

    There being a divine being or some kind of omnipresent force that looks after us or even an afterlife doesn't make much sense to me, because of that I'm content with the death of my body being the death of my conciousness. I don't really need anything after that and I am relatively content with my existence, although I could do with being less of an arsehole sometimes!

    Might be a theoretical agnostic, but practically an atheist. If there is no proof for a god, there is no reason why you should be contemplating the question at all. It's not a question of saying there is no god, it's that the question is null and void anyway, unless evidence speaks otherwise.
    This x1000. There's this myth always put about that atheists "believe" there is no God and are 100% sure there isn't one. Not at all. The point is, there's no logical reason for anyone to think a God or Gods do exist; therefore "belief" is irrelevant. The question of a supreme being is irrelvant at best, but, in my opinion, hugely unhelpful.

    Agnostics are open to believing in God; atheists do not even consider belief - there's no reason to.

    I, personally, would feel comforted to know there's more than just this life, but there's no reason for me to think that there is.

    A savoy cabbage ripped into small chunks, stir-fried in sesame oil to the point where it's slightly burned so it can be eaten like crisps is amazing. That was one of my better discoveries to come from accidentally burning things.

    The idea of there being something out there must be really comforting and I would love to have that belief but I don't.

    I was having a discussion at work yesterday and this guy was saying that god would always provide for him because he prayed for it everyday. That must be so nice to have that belief to fall back on, I constantly shit myself that something is going to happen and I'm going to lose the flat/job/wife

    Just replace 'they believe' with 'they are of the opinion that' if it makes things easier for you.

    I wonder if a cabbage has any kind of consciousness?

    Care to expand? Not sure I get you. "They are of the opinion that there's probably no God". That better?

    I like to think so. In my head it's crying out as the flaming oils engulf it.

    My pleasure, why do I get the feeling that the conversation about cabbage is more important than the existential one ;-)

    Lovely theory I once read was about the end of the universe (big freeze or whatever), and what we (humans) could do to escape it. Passing our energy and data to another universe might not be possible, but if we'd advanced enough, we may be able to create a universe ourselves, defining it with all the constants or equations and evolutions of matter that would enable human life (and everything that preceeded and and succeeded it) to eventually become again. We become gods. Which means it may have been humans that created us in the first place. Hurrah!

    I mean it's a rather pointless exercise to get hung up on the word 'believe/belief/whatever'.

    Also, most bacon is shit because it is cheap shit, pumped full of water. Decent quality bacon is decent, no matter what country you eat it in. I like my bacon with tomatoe.

    Beliefs are not the same as opinions. We are expected to respect people's beliefs.

    Opinions are like arseholes, as the saying goes. Are we meant to respect arseholes? Nigel Farage is an arsehole. Are you saying we should respect UKIP, disusedgenius? Is that what you're saying?

    You sicken me.

    I hate the term atheist. If I am an atheist I also want to be called asantaclausist, acommunism-works-ist and arapmusicisgoodist.

    I respect people. I don't respect their beliefs. as an example my bother in law is muslim, and a lovely chap. I have a lot of respect for him and won't mention religion around him as I respect him and won't upset him. That doesn't stop me from thinking his religion is silly and not deserving of any respect.

    You've got to respect your arsehole. Nothing worse than being over aggressive with the toilet paper. The next poo can be a terrifying experience.

    Bacon is the USA is shit. It is overcooked cardboard. The UK is not much better as it is often salty and they cut off the best bit.

    South african bacon is the best. UK bacon with the rind left on. What sort of deviant removes the rind from 99% of bacon you see in the shops in the UK.
