32567 Britain

Is Britain slowly changing? There is no sign that any of these developments are stopping, or even slowing. Is it accelerating if so they were meant to. The secret thinkers at the core of the Boris government wanted to back to Victorian times where the toff’s rules the working class and start the world over again, at home and abroad, though they never dared to tell us how. As their mighty, unstoppable project unfolds, Britain as we knew it will disappear, as they hoped it would. At least we know who to blame. 

Surely none of you lot out there really believe Cameron's recent attempt to persuade the British public that he is going to be tough on the substantial numbers of nice Romanian people that I believe will arrive on our shores shortly? I say that a problem will crop up 'unexpectedly' that will prevent said tough measures being taken. Already, the EU is saying that any attempts to deprive the Romanians of benefits are illegal and Cameron has got an escape route. This fit a previous pattern whereby Cameron mollifies the Tory Party's right-wing by pretending to introduce a policy they like whilst really having no intention of implementing it-like his election promise to scrap human rights laws that was kicked into the long grass after the election (won't happen this time either) or the much promised EU referendum.

One of the most striking facets of mass immigration (certainly in recent years but also in previous ages) has been the attitude of immigrants. Some of them don't help themselves by the way they put themselves over. To be fair, up until roughly the 1970's, most immigrants did come here to find work and did make an acceptable afford to fit in with their new society. However the subsequent 30 odd years witnessed an increasing tendency amongst immigrant arrivals to demand that British society changes its customs and laws to suit their own beliefs and culture. This tendency has intensified in the last twenty years or so and has achieved the status of an (almost unchallengeable dogma.)In this way minorities have overridden the will of the vast majority of Britons already here. What gets me is their perverse sense of entitlement to do this. This is totally unacceptable. It is time that we learnt to say no immigrants and even reverse some of the damage done by this trend (but we'll need courage to do this.)

Let's face it all the evidence of the first few years of Cameron's rule point to the unavoidable conclusion that he has a left-liberal project that he is ultra determined to push through irrespective of any opposition(even if his opponents are right.)Look at grammar schools and homosexual marriage. There is little to no point in engaging in debate with him as you will not change his mind in any substantial or worthwhile way as I believe you have found out over the years. To return to an earlier theme of mine witness the anti-Protestantism of Cameron and his group in their recent piece of constitutional vandalism in tinkering with The Act of Settlement. What a confused disaster. Its real aim is not (really) to end the unfairness Primogeniture but to continue the ongoing process of the dilution of the Protestant settlement in Britain, I am now of a mind to (try to) resist this tendency. The cracks in the crystal lattice of received dogmatic thought - frozen in Bronze Age time - are showing. I urge you to open them up further, shatter the frozen lattice of perm-dogma and open your mind to the intellectual rewards of real discovery about the real world. It is truly rewarding.

You can't get a decent conversation. It's Jesus this and Jesus that all the time. If the company you work for happens to be in one of these areas then you're stuck. I happened to be surrounded by them at work and they used to disappear every lunch time for Bible meetings.

Even living here in London, which was recently listed as the most God rejecting place in Britain, I never talk about religion at work and I never hear anyone else talking about it, and if I ignore it. I'm not sure of anyone's religious affiliation. My work experience has been the same. Yes, if you enter some grocery store’s there will be religious books for sale, and if you visit Temple Square you may get approached by the missionaries but this kind of thing does not sound familiar.
But I was visiting Texas recently and while I was at the park a woman approached me and asked "Do you know Jesus". Her face looked very sweet and sincere and I just said "yes, thank you" But that was a first for me. Whether this happens often in the south I don't know, but it had never happened to me before.

There are many things I could, with little effort, dig up from your recent comments. But I'll just stick with the references to Richard Dawkins we have made, along with the declared vision of little children fearfully clasping their hands together believing that hell lurks just one step behind them as a definition of your vision of the Christian faith. Maybe one day its actual significance of Christ might actually break through a clearly determined wall of bigotry and utter ignorance which sadly provides the foundation to the stringent and scathing 'no God at all costs' reasoning - which even honest sceptics find totally counterproductive.

But these discussions have brought home to me the truth of the words of an old professor of mine, a man of faith, but who was once a fiercely determined atheist who advised Christians that it is impossible to break down determined anti-religious sentiment through rational argument. People can only point the way by clearing away the mountain of lies, half-truths, simplistic misrepresentations and misunderstandings, share their own experiences which brought them to belief and then let the lives of those with whom they are communicating unfold for better or for worse.

 First before I go on some words of Humphrey confirmed and quoted by Richard Dawkins:-

“Parents should no more be allowed to teach children about the literal truth of the Bible than to knock their children’s teeth out, Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology. Dawkins has not been attacking organised faith so much as a sort of rhetorical straw man”.

"Many a scientist, philosopher, psychologist and theologian could answer such blatant clap-trap far more interestingly and conclusively than me." I think I may have said this before, or something similar, but you are way too evangelical for my taste. I was in America for 3 years; there you could not get away from it. You couldn't get away from it. Things are different in Britain. Aside from the odd visit from the Jehovah’s or Mormons - and they're always nice enough, if a bit loopy, or an encounter with a member of the Salvation Army holding out a tin in Boots store doorways' doorway, you don't get the relentless evangelism in Britain that you get in parts of America.

I say in parts of America because, while there is an overarching religious atmosphere everywhere, the intensity of the evangelism varies. It's not literally everywhere in the Dome of  religion that is iconic-America to European eyes and ears, but there definitely are enclaves of religious oppression that make the non-religious want to tear their hair out.

You can't get a decent conversation. It's Jesus this and Jesus that all the time. If the company you work for happens to be in one of these areas then you're stuck. I was happened to be surrounded by them at work and they used to disappear at lunchtime for Bible meetings. Their desks were littered with religious paraphernalia and commonplace were sickly-sentimental pieces of religious poetry pinned to the partitions. Even the devoutly religious British will have thought it a bit over the top. But this was America, it was their way, and so I let it mostly pass. I wasn't going to be there forever.

 But religion is rooted in feeling. It is not rooted in the intellect. Religion is felt strongly by a significant number of the population, and by everyone to a certain extent. For those with weak religion the intellect is powerful enough to overwhelm it, and these people are generally atheists. The religious feel God, to be the explanation. They feel God to be the truth, the light, the meaning of everything, and the feeling can be very powerful, too powerful for the intellect to overcome. Many a scientist, philosopher, psychologist and theologian could answer such blatant clap-trap far more interestingly and conclusively than myself.

All I will do is to reconcile this atheism and determination to reality with so called 'intellect' with the following information relating to very recent developments which are taking place in a world that is, for the time being, increasingly dominated by secularist reasoning. However, it leads to weird circumstances as for example, Belgium the capital country of the EU, who have also the highest deaths per one million people due to the Corona virus called Covid 19, is considering allowing children and Alzheimer’s sufferers to ask to be euthanized.

The proposed changes to the country’s decade-old law have been submitted to the Belgium Parliament by the Socialist Party. The draft legislation calls for “the law to be extended to minors if they are capable of discernment or affected by an incurable illness or suffering that we cannot alleviate”. Dr Saunders, director of campaign group Care not Killing, warned in response to the report: “The lessons are clear. Once you relax the law on euthanasia or assisted suicide steady extension will follow as night follows day.” He added that what we are witnessing in Belgium is “the steady intentional escalation of numbers with a gradual widening of the categories of patients to be included”. Documented cases of euthanasia in Belgium have increased 500% since 2003.

According to official figures, some 1,133 cases of euthanasia were recorded in 2011, about one percent of all deaths in the country. In 2018, a report showed that some 136 nurses had been involved in killing patients without their “explicit request”. And last year, a disturbing study showed that people being killed by euthanasia in Belgium are having their organs harvested for transplant surgery. But the world has a shared history and, in the context of the deliberate weakening of Christian influence, so clearly to be seen in Belgium, a very much shared echo-chamber with regards to what is beginning to, yet again, haunt the human race. And a realisation of this obvious fact involves, in every way, the utilisation of the brain as well as the heart.
