Thanks for the offer.... but as I've visited an awful lot of the Worlds "Hell-holes" in my time, I think I'll pass on this offer, if you don't mind?

Please don't think that I have any inclination towards the likes of Bob Geldoff-esque solutions... I don't believe that we can "cure the World's ills" in this or any similar manner.... the only solution I can think of is for the human race to die out and that's a bit extreme....

Yes we can. The reason the world is in such a state is that man is denying the existance of Jesus Christ. you can scoff at me, ridicule me , abuse me- but until mankind comes To Jesus- the world is going to continue down an ever spiral descent into oblivion. I am not talking about Bob Geldorf, I am not talking about giving millions to the tseumi victims - its all good but doesnt solve the basic problem. Did you ever think along those lines??

Yeh, years ago, but rejected it as pish. If God exists, he's a bastud.

No, Rogue... I very much doubt that. Despite not agreeing with some of your "ideas" and the like, you are probably the most affable bloke I've ever met.....despite being in the marine trade...
