    I was surprised to see Christopher Lee listed as a graduate of the Rank Charm School.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Company_of_Youth

    I would have thought his vertiginous physique counted against any ability he might have playing a charming ingenue. And I would have thought they'd change his tiny surname.

    This is going way off-topic now, but it's a fascinating subject, so I've created a special topic where can discuss the paranormal (my preferred name for the 'supernatural'):

    1. I have no problem with religion per se, but the existence of a supreme being is a belief, not a proven fact.

    2. The Holy Ghost and the Holy Spirit are one and the same. The difference is semantic. Indeed. if you believe in The Holy Trinity, all three are the same.
    I suspect, Narabdela, that you are far too sensible for this thread.

    If one accepts belief in God then one automatically accepts a belief in the Devil, as a Christian concept, but there is no proof of either.. it’s a question of faith.

    In fact, if you read Richard Dawkins very persuasive arguments, the weight of evidence is very much against the existence of a greater being- whatever you want to call it. Accepting that God does not exist does not, per se, negate the argument for the supernatural, outside of the Devil and that malarkey , I suppose, but the evidence isn’t yet compelling.

    What’s the difference between the Holy Ghost and the Holy Spiirt?

    There’s no such thing as the supernatural.

    I've seen no evidence that convinces me. The onus of proof is on the believers.

    Powers of what kind? Raise the Devil? Inhabit the Astral Plain? Shapeshift into cats or wolves? Or are there other powers you have in mind?

    The controversy is surely over whether supernatural powers are involved. That is indeed "bollocks" to a rationalist like myself .

    Satanism as a belief system is real. I don't think anyone would argue with that.
    The controversy is surely over whether supernatural powers are involved. That is indeed "bollocks" to a rationalist like myself but then I feel the same about Christian miracles.
