anyone who gets metro and reads the letters page will no doubt have seen Billy Watkiss’s statement ‘who’s got the best imaginary friend?’ in reference to religion. This has sparked a lot of religious debate including a reply by Sandeep Shah who claims that god must exist because she thinks the world does not look like ‘the result of a random explosion’ and Mr Naughtie who thinks god exists because ‘it is aerodynamically impossible for bumble bees to fly’.
Well I have seen bumble bees fly and I can think of nothing more random than the landscapes of the 5 continents and so feel it could result from a random explosion. I have not however seen god in any shape or form from any of the religions around the world. Let’s face it imaginary friends are for kids.
