Question for Atheitis, concerning The Afterlife.

07 July 2014, 13:52

Atheitis wrote a letter concerning the afterlife, or non-existence there-of.

Of course, I concur, and can even add an anecdote regarding Kerry Packer, the Aussie media tycoon left clinically dead for six minutes after a heart attack:

"I’ve been to the other side and let me tell you, son, there’s fucking nothing there...there’s no one waiting for you, there’s no one to judge you, so you can do what you bloody well like"

But my question does not concern humans, it concerns dishwashers. Atheitis clearly stated that he “can fix a dishwasher, iron or leaking roof, build a carport and erect an electric fence”.

My dishwasher, like Atheitis himself, is on strike four. Again, like Atheitis, it is in its golden years, but has suffered a heart attack. The lights go on, I hear the drainage pump struggling to pump, but something has clogged it up.

I have googled solutions, but they all relate to newer, computerised  models. Mine is a simple dial operated model, probably 15 years old. I have tried the open heart surgery method, viz a viz taking the front covers off, but cannot access the pump.

Pray tell, dear Atheitis, or any reader for that matter: heathen or believer, what do I do? The wife is making me wash up until such time as the machine is fixed, and it’s killing me.

Is there hope for my machine? It is a Bosch model. All prayers and practical solutions welcome.

(please, no chancer’s, this is a very serious matter)

I, Human

I have, over the past few years, glanced at various secular humanist websites, and have found that my personal life philosophy is very much aligned with their goals - almost to a tee. Read more...

Dear AB and CSA

Nobody likes to work with a proverbial sword on their neck, yet our beloved captain and MVP will be donning the green and gold with this burden looming like a dementor around the cricket ground of said encounter. Read more...

Obama, Hamlet and the Tragedy of ...

And pretty much anyone who has done so will know that the tragedy occurred largely because Hamlet, the prince of Denmark, was plagued by the inability to make a decision and to act. Read more...

I think I have spent some time reading (yes I commented in the past) articles between Atheists and Christians debating the existence of God and Science.  Read more...
