    I do understand all that Mr B. But the time must come when we address these beliefs. It is as if you poked pup in the stomach to make me look slimmer. Yes, the blubber under your finger is less there, but it just bulges out somewhere else. Until I address the blubber issue properly, trying to poke the fat out of sight or me wearing a corset is just sweeping the issue out of sight. Once you remove your finger, or I take the cosset off, the puppy-fat is still there.
    Is the submission the place to address it?

    If the answer is "yes", then you might do so in a submission.

    If the answer is "no", one would question why you are still going on.

    BTW, if you are feeling prods, they are of your own doing.

    I'd be happier if the thread was allowed to return to its subject, rather than being forced to encompass what amounts to a tone war. The last thing I want to do is to keep you carrying on about how satanists incur your displeasure.

    I apologise to all for the derail. To be clear, satanists do not displease me. Since my ideas seem to be unpopular, I don't think there is any merit to doing my own submission.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    Different ideas? Hey, anyone who has a different idea, please consider making a submission.

    The Second Exposure Draft of the Bill is here: https://www.ag.gov.au/Consultations/...re-drafts.aspx

    the National Secular Lobby's submission on the Bill is here: https://www.nationalsecularlobby.org...sure-Draft.pdf

    Some guidance, cribbed from the National Secular Lobby (support them if you can):

    Making a submission
    A submission can be as long or as short as you like, and there is no specific format required.

    Submissions on the second exposure draft only need to cover the differences between the first exposure draft and the second exposure draft, not the entire Bill, although you are free to cover whatever range of points you want.


    If you refer to any other publications, statistics or public statements in your submission, it is useful to include a footnote reference to substantiate your words.


    Write up your submission as a Word document or PDF. Attach it to an email and send it to FoRConsultation@ag.gov.au.


    The email itself does not need to be long. Include brief text to the effect that you have attached a submission for the second exposure draft of the Religious Discrimination Bill.


    If you do not want your submission to be published online under your name, include brief text saying, "I consent to my submission being published anonymously", or, "I do not consent to my submission being published online".


    Include your full name.


    Feel free to use the NSL submission as a reference when writing your own.
    Note: Submissions close 31 January 2020
