    “Not just religion, obvs.”

    Including scientists, Democrats, PhDs, teachers, Republicans, pundits, cartoonists…

  2. 1HappyHeathen says:

    ray, maybe add… comment section contributors ????

  3. raymondm says:

    @happyheathen We’re included twice: once under “pundits” and once under “…”

    Author: Yesterday, Wednesday, I could not access the comments section. I tried going to “previous” and back to “last”, but it made no difference.

    Today, I was able to get to “comments” but still only by going to “previous” and “last”.

  5. Author says:

    Sorry, Son of Glenner. I have no idea why that happened, and I can’t replicate the problem. Usually you can access the comments by clicking on the red title. It’s possible that your browser is glitchy. Have you tried using a different one?

  6. raymondm says:

    It happened to me, too. (Safari, MacOS). I had to click on the link in the email ( to get back here.

    In fact, is still not working. Not in Firefox, either. The comic comes up, but not the comments.

  7. raymondm says:

    And Chrome.

  8. oake says:

    Ctrl and F5 seems to sort it.

  9. M27Holts says:

    The surety of religious numpties and the respect that is expected by society for what are clearly delusional ideas is the cause. Religious people should be ridiculed in the streets and their beliefs questioned every time they spout their shite….

  10. M27Holts says:

    It has just been revealed tbat MI5 are admitting mistakes regarding the manchester koran inspired atrocity. Seems people are keen to blame the security services rather than the seventh century warlord whos ridiculous religion and its ludicrous waste of paper that is the true cause…

  11. Son of Glenner says:

    oake: Thanks for the tip. The problem seems to have resolved itself now, but I’ll try Ctrl and F5 if it happens again.

    I normally use Safari, with Firefox available as an alternative.

    Oh for the days of my youth, when written communication was per pencil or steel nibbed pen dipped in ink in an inkwell! At least it was on paper, not goatskin parchment!

    M27Holts: Re your first comment: The expectation of respect for religious delusions is a legacy from when the religious were a dominant majority. It will take several generations before this legacy dies out and religious believers will be given the kindly treatment and medication they need.

    Re your second comment: Encouraging people to have burglar alarms and good locks on their doors is not the same as condoning burglary. In the same way, criticism of the work of the security services is not the same as letting Islam off the hook.

    BTW, pointing out difficulties in accessing these comments is in no way a criticism of our esteemed and no doubt hardworking Author. I smell religious viruses or trolls in the system, if that is not too paranoid.

  12. Some Dude says:

    The good old self-satisfaction… Personally, I prefer admitting that I don’t know something than having the false certainty of a made-up answer.

  13. M27Holts says:

    In fact I know so little, i don’t even know what I don’t know!

  14. Someone says:

    Weird Al said it (sang it) best:

  15. Paddy says:

    “He is a wise man who knows that he knows nothing”

    (Apologies if my memory has mangled the original quote)

  16. Dr John the Wipper says:

    My daughter translated the Socratian Greek as “All that I know is that I know nothing”.
    I am not qualified to arbitrate…

  17. M27Holts says:

    “The answer, to life, the universe and everything is….BEER!” M27holts….2018…

  18. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: Coincidentally, I’ve just had (yesterday, Saturday) a really great day, in which several different kinds of beer played a major part, with a tiny bit of assistance from single malt Scotch whisky and some chips (“fries” to you Yanks & Kanucks). And I don’t even have a hangover!

  19. M27Holts says:

    I do like a single malt chaser with my beer. Very civilised. Chips are good at soaking up beer…I had a tee total weekend in preparation for the solstice onslaught! Haha

  20. M27Holts says:

    Where is everybody? What site are they bantering on?

  21. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: Looks as though you and I have killed this discussion with our remarks about beer and related matters!

  22. M27Holts says:

    I thought that beer makes for good company and good times…always drink in a good mood and avoid if you depressed….free advice from the northwest sector of Mancunia….

  23. M27Hols and Son of Glenner, I’m here but I’m being quiet. Just lurking in the snug nursing a glass of Bells, the scotch of British journalists and Scotland Yard. That’s because I have nothing to contribute to the conversation at the moment. But please carry on.
