Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case. The world is full of injustices and atrocities that governments and the voice of faith expect us to accept, though with each passing year they grow fewer and fewer, at least one would hope. I have created this blog as a space for me to rant about all things science, politics, philosophy and religion, before it’s too late and the vessel of new atheism propelled by a growing surge in secularism solves all of the world’s problems for good.

Osama Bin Laden, Most wanted man in the world, has been killed!


Finally, after almost a decade of chasing Osama Bin Laden America has been vindicated. He was killed in a gun fight after a small group of US soldiers tracked him down in a Pakistani town. The US have taken his body. Keep your eye on the news for more details my friends!

Game over...

It's also been reported that people are dancing and cheering in the streets in certain parts of the US, ironic considering that's what we seem to be appalled by when we see fundamentalist muslims doing the same following the death of Americans.

It may be interesting to see what happens in the future now with the "war on terror" and whether support from the public is going to dramatically drop off now that Bin Laden's been killed. Is it time to bring the troops home? I doubt it... At least for now al-Qaida has had its head severed. So here's hoping two heads don't grow back in the same place, and that al-Qaida fizzles out in the years to come.
