And the big question for all Scots today is: just how Welsh are you? Let's ask the Invisible Magic Friend?

And the Big News today is that everything is just awful. It's all doom and gloom and it always has been. Then you look at what humans have done in the past: the partition of India, the atomic bombs, the Holocaust, the world wars, the wars of imperialism, the slave trade, the Mongol invasions, the fall of the Roman Empire, the rise of the Roman Empire, the slaughter of the people of the Promised Land, the Flood. People are just downright rotten and horrible.

My message is: try to be nice. If you can avoid taking part in genocide or atomic warfare, then please, please, please, do so.

And the big news today is the invention of the Internet. I'm not interested in all this technology and I'm certainly not interested in talking about it as part of my Thought For The Day. If I was interested in Twitter, or Facebook, or email or the latest mobile phone, then I would make that my topic of conversation, rather than Scottish Independence, or turmoil in the Ukraine, or war in the Middle East. But what's happening in the world of social media means absolutely nothing to me. I'm not even going to mention wifi.

Guru Nanak says that you cannot find the Invisible Magic Friend up a mountain. Which is odd, because he seems to spend an inordinate amount of time at the top of mountains. I think he meant that you cannot get a good mobile signal up the top of mountains, not that that is of any interest to me.

Ebola: we need to work together to fight it. That's how Christians invented medicine and got rid of all the other diseases. As Christians, they thought "Let's be nice to poor people and cure their diseases."

If they hadn't been Christians, they would have jumped up and down on all those bloody little poor people, with their disgusting diseases, and said "Take that, you dirty, smelly poor people you."

So you just be grateful for Christianity. As Jesus said, "Let their be evidence based understanding of bacteria and viruses, how they are spread and how outbreaks of disease can be contained using good sanitation, sensible use of anti-biotics and a well funded programme of vaccination."

Thank the Invisible Magic Friend that we have Christianity around to do all this.

And here is today's news from a Faith Perspective: 15 months ago there was the horse meat scare. Food is actually more popular than football now! When we think of food, we naturally think of faith and all that it has to tell us about food.

Notice how NATO, the military alliance, and platoons of ants, both rely on cooperation to achieve their ends. They do this because Jesus said to cooperate.
