At the end of last year, The Huffington Post was one of a number of outlets to carry articles on an experiment conducted by Michael Marshall from the Merseyside Skeptics Society that looked into the world of psychics. It was the most recent in a long line of similar experiments set up which are destined - no pun intended - to see psychics fail before they've even begun.
This picture of St George is clearly not as simple and straightforward as far-right groups such as the English Defence League (EDL) and its offshoots would like to make out when they march up and down waving the Cross of St George.
This St George's Day we - 22 very different faith organisations, plus anti-racist groups - are reclaiming St George, plus people of different ethnicities and different religions (even the Welsh!). St George does not belong to extremists.
In 2006 Richard Dawkins wrote what might yet prove to be one of the most important books of the 21st Century, The God Delusion. However, seven years on and Dawkins appears to have become unnecessarily divisive and detached.
There is a fear ... that the gradual healing of the relationship between Muslims and others could be easily undone by incidents like Boston bombings - even though 'no soul should bear the burden for another' according to the teachings of the Abrahamic faiths.
Femen might intend to liberate the women of Islam, but their over-simplification of Muslim women's experiences not only alienates this group, it offends them.
Who is the coward? Is it the deluded young man from an immigrant background who makes the decision to commit mayhem to help some spurious 'cause', who lobs bombs at pursuing SWAT teams and shoots from his hidey-hole, a dry-docked boat? Or is it the technology graduate, with his home in the suburbs and his federal pension, whose greatest risk is the long drive home?
A person using this defense of splitting will be vulnerable and possibly even seek out a group that has as its central mission, restoring him to the true Islam. At the same time, he could destroy the corrupted West - which may have become for him the symbol of his corrupted self, that he now wishes to disown.
Twitter has displayed spiritual tendencies recently, with #prayforboston, #prayforiran and #prayfortexas all trending at one time or another. This is a fairly typical pattern after shocking events, but the exact function of praying for victims, and whether it is worthwhile, is unclear.
Now that the FBI has published images of two suspects in the bombing of the Boston marathon, many people living in London, UK, will anxiously recall the disastrous actions of the Metropolitan Police in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the London Underground in July 2005.
We are social beings and interacting with others is crucial to our functioning and mental health. The loss of active family connections and any sense of community, inevitably lead to depression so the question is how do we bring socialisng back into these people's lives and can a sense of community actually be established?
Just when I thought this little twerp couldn't be any more irritating, he surpasses my expectations. His thrust into superstardom seems to have resulted in a bypass of any cognitive development.
On Friday 12 of April Femen's topless Jihad reached Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki with the question: "Where is Amina?" The president was keeping silent, hiding himself behind dozen of security guards. Some time after I got a telephone call: "Inna, I am here. It's me, Amina!".

If Femen really want to help Muslim women they should address the fact that for far too long now, Muslim women have been marginalised, bombed, raped, killed, and enslaved by men from the western world. They should work within their own countries to try and subvert future wars against Muslim countries and help break down barriers. Or perhaps they should stick to trying to liberate women in the west.
