Rob. The modern world is very frustrating and being a human being in it is also very frustrating. Like every other human being I somehow believe I am special. You should know this. I'm going to share my thoughts with you on this matter in the form of a blog. When I can be bothered. But I'm quite lazy.
Religion is a tricky issue and in this modern world we all try to figure it out. I find that dogma helps and dogmatically adhering to a system gives you a better sense of surety. Lots of people have issues with Islam at the moment for obvious political reasons. The main problem with Islam I have is that when I get to paradise it's going to be very difficult to single Mohammed out in a crowd as I have no visual reference. Jesus is easy, he's going to to have a beard. It may be difficult to find him in thirty or so years when the hipsters all die out but I'll just look at everyone's hands. I guess Jesus will be the one with no tattoos but at least some evidence of extreme body piercing. Also he probably won't know much about that latest bands unless he takes a quick peek at Pitchfork. I also presume he's not much of a coffee drinker. Was coffee invented when he was around?
