Is there anyone who believes that a particular religion is correct and true, but who doesn't worship the god of that religion on moral grounds? For example, refusing to worship Yahweh for all the murdering he did in his early years.

Mr. Prosser said, "You were quite entitled to make any suggestions or protests at the appropriate time, you know."
"Appropriate time?" hooted Arthur. "Appropriate time? The first I knew about it was when a workman arrived at my home yesterday. I asked him if he'd come to clean the windows and he said no, he'd come to demolish the house. He didn't tell me straight away of course. Oh no. First he wiped a couple of windows and charged me a fiver. Then he told me."
"But Mr. Dent, the plans have been available in the local planning office for the last nine months."
"Oh yes, well, as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn't exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything."
"But the plans were on display..."
"On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them."
"That's the display department."
"With a flashlight."
"Ah, well, the lights had probably gone."
"So had the stairs."
"But look, you found the notice, didn't you?"
"Yes," said Arthur, "yes I did. It was on display on the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying 'Beware of the Leopard.'"


This little exerpt from the wonderful Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by the late Douglas Adams is what I always think of when certain religious types suggest that I have to seek out God before I can find evidence for him.
For an all powerful, all loving being, he doesn't exactly go out of his way to call attention to himself does he?

So, I just watched William Shatner's documentary 'The Captains' on Netflix. Is it just me, or is Avery Brooks a little....out there?

+Amber Petchey's post regarding life before death reminded me of a question I've long wondered about. 
If you believe in an afterlife, and someone close to you who is also a believer dies, why grieve? Shouldn't you be happy for them, for they have gone to paradise? 
I mean, sure, you'll miss their company, I've no doubt. But it seems to me that grieving relatives/friends usually display far more outpouring of emotion than I would have thought warranted a situation where you're going to be apart for a little while (comparatively speaking), and then reunited for eternity.

A new island rises out of the ocean the day of Sir pTerry's passing? Coincidence? I think not! Should definitely be named Leshp in his honour. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jingo_%28novel%29)

Seen a few posts on here about the Eaglemoss model collection. Does anyone know if they're limited edition or not? Several of them I was hoping to get have gone out of stock. Just wondering if they're likely to reappear at some point.
