On the murder of Bin Laden…

Despite the fact he was an evil man, I am still unconvinced that punishment-by-death was the right way to go; instead, putting him in front of a global audience, forced to explain his atrocities to his victims’ families, would, perhaps, be a suitable start. And let’s not forget the American government were the ones who funded Al Qaeda and the Taliban in the first place and it was the CIA who trained its militants.

Can science, philosophy or religion really explain why we are here?

Rob Kneebone

If one accepts that we are merely a collection of atoms-which by their very nature and definition are soulless inanimate objects-then how does one explain the existence of human emotion, compassion and the capacity we have to love? Can that just be attributed to mere electrical impulses? Are we nothing more than a collection of particles/products of freak chance and coincidence, or is there more to the existence of us than the theories of modern science, philosophy and religion can ever expect to explain?
