Poor Christians. Constantly under attack from people who choose to think for themselves.

What will the world look like in 50 years?

If there is a more persecuted group of people than Christian's in western civilisation, then I haven't seen it!
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers and Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....

Look at the most powerful country in the World America.

If you don't claim to be at least a Christian you won't get the Democratic nomination, mean while over the Republicans it is a case of who is the biggest super Christian.

In their last campaign we had 3 or 4 separate candidates who all claimed they talked to Jesus and told them they have to be the next president, which goes to show Jesus love a few wines and some drunken texting.

Look guys, I'm kinda breaking a solemn vow I made, not to engage in these threads.... Simply because it's a poor way of communication. It only ends up going in circles.
It's great that we can discuss and debate these issues. Australia is great for that, at least!

1.2 million people die as a result of car crashes around the world each year. If roads were to become fully automated this would decrease that number dramatically.

Google has already developed a self driving car and Mercedes has developed a self driving truck.

It is predicted that within 15 years our roads will be predominantly operated by self driving cars and much the same as ordering an Uber you will order your Google car.

On religion (I'll avoid any rants in this thread) I'd have to agree with Dubby but take it even further, all mainstream religions will be on deaths door in the west not just Abrahamic ones, personal spirituality and humanism will be the dominant beliefs, will still be strong in the countries with poor education system as it is today.

Annnd drugs, a lot will be legalised and there'll be a lot more targeting certain characteristics, some technology based, be it getting off by inserting a chip or energy wave directly into the brain.

Id just like to point out that i enjoy dubbys debate on the religion topic. Hes happy to give his opinion and hear others opinions without turning to insults. Its refreshing even if he is a jerk from the jerk store

Agree Simo, the only problem I have with discussing religion with Dubby though is he's a good bloke so I behave, much more fun discussing it with an ****.

Thanks, gents.

The feeling is mutual towards you.

Being a **** about things doesn't help anyone. That's one thing I learned by being in the jerk store
