He what he said were true then one would find that the more religious a country is then the more moral, less crime-ridden and more compassionate it would be than others. Let us look at the figures Atheists in USA = 3.1% Has 1% of its population in jail and let us be honest a less than altruistic politics when it comes to social/medical care. Also, a very large % of its population feel the need to arm themselves against the rest. Okay, that may be a statistical anomaly so what happens if we examine others. Least religious counties in order; China - 7% feel religious Japan - 13% Estonia - 16% Sweden - 19% Norway - 21% Czech Republic - 23% Hong Kong - 26% Netherlands - 26% Israel - 30% United Kingdom - 30% New Zealand - 33% Australia - 34% Azerbaijan - 34% Belarus - 34% Cuba - 34% Germany - 34% Vietnam - 34% Spain - 37% Switzerland - 38% Albania - 39% (three other countries - Austria, Hungary and Luxembourg - also returned a result of 39%) Most religious Ethiopia - 99% feel religious Malawi - 99% Niger - 99% Sri Lanka - 99% Yemen - 99% Burundi - 98% Djibouti - 98% Mauritania - 98% Somalia - 98% Afghanistan - 97% Comoros - 97% Egypt - 97% Guinea - 97% Laos - 97% Myanmar - 97% Cambodia - 96% Cameroon - 96% Jordan - 96% Senegal - 96% Chad - 95% (six other countries - Ghana, Mali, Qatar, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda and Zambia - also returned a result of 95%) Highest murder rates per capita by country 1 Brazil 40,974 2010 2 India 40,752 2009 3 Mexico 25,757 2010 4 Ethiopia 20,239 2008 5 Indonesia 18,963 2008 6 Nigeria 18,422 2008 7 South Africa 15,940 2010 8 Colombia 15,459 2010 9 Russia 14,574 2010 10 Pakistan 13,860 2011 11 Democratic Republic of the Congo 13,558 2008 12 China 13,410 2010 13 Venezuela 13,080 2010 14 United States 12,996 2010 15 Uganda 11,373 2008 16 Cote d'Ivoire 10,801 2008 17 Tanzania 10,357 2008 18 Sudan 10,028 2008 19 Kenya 7,733 2008 20 Honduras 7,104 2011 21 Guatemala 5,681 2011 22 Malawi 5,039 2008 23 Philippines 4,947 2009 24 Burma 4,800 2008 25 Zambia 4,710 2008 26 El Salvador 4,308 2011 27 Bangladesh 3,988 2010 28 Cameroon 3,700 2008 29 North Korea 3,658 2008 30 Ghana 3,646 2008 Souces https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/maps-and-graphics/most-religious-countries-in-the-world/ https://www.nationmaster.com/country-info/stats/Crime/Violent-crime/Murder-rate

You know, before all of the new age religions and beliefs, there had to have been a "seed" or "root"...
273kelvin comments on Jul 9, 2019:
Early religions were the keepers of knowledge. They were divided roughly into sun or moon worshipers. Moon people held sway when we lived mostly by hunter-gathering but were usurped when grasses mutated and agriculture became our main source of food. Only to re-emerge later when we started to trade and looked to the tides.

The article failed to point out the biggest similarities between sport and religion. In that it is tribal. The team you support is highly dependant on your family and location, does that sound familiar? In some cases, this will intertwine as in Glasgow or Northern Ireland, where sectarianism still runs rife. I suppose that it may be true in US sports too, I doubt that Notre Dame has many Presbertian fans?

273kelvin comments on Jul 6, 2019:
Out of those, it would have to be Hendrix. Of the three greatest guitarists in history. Segovia, Les Paul, and Jimmy. All three of them moved the goalposts. Every electric guitar you hear now is post-Hendrix. Yes, some may be more accomplished (although I cannot think of any from up there). Yes, some may have gone on to do more diverse things but they were not members of the 27 club. None of them came close to this*. Younger listeners have to use their imagination here. The USA was in a state of violent turmoil. The Vietnam war had been dragging on for 6 years with no end in sight. Riots were happening in black ghettoes like Watts and Detriot. Martin Luther King was assassinated. Students were killed protesting the war. The country was on the brink of civil war. Out of this Jimmy comes up with a sound montage that encapsulates everything, with just his guitar and feedback. It ain't about what you got, it's about what you do with it. He saw America and used his guitar to open it up like a surgeon, exposing all the pus within. When you consider what equipment we have now, he said more with that than any rappers expletives. This guy was a true artist and this was his Guernica. * https://youtu.be/TKAwPA14Ni4

Is it possible come up with a truly original thought?
273kelvin comments on Jul 6, 2019:
It depends on your definition of original. We all live within the mythos. That collective of all human civilization and thought. From Aristotle, Jesus, Newton, Einstien to Marx (both Karl and Groucho). Any thoughts or ideas are built on and part of that mythos. Take chess for an example; I look at my bookshelf and see a row of opening books (now well out of date). Yet new moves are produced all the time. These could be described as original thoughts but only as an addition to the temple of Casia. On the shoulders of giants. Put another way. Paul McCartney wakes up one morning with this tune called "Scrambled eggs" in his head. He goes to George Martin and asks if this is something he has heard before, as it seems very familiar. George, who knew his stuff says "No that's original". Words are added and it is of course "Yesterday". Now is that new or can it only be heard through the filter of western a 12 semi-tone octave and 8 notes to a key ear? Could you theoretically play "Yesterday" to a cave-man and have him dig it? The answer is obviously no. We have new and original thoughts but only inside a well built up network of other thoughts.
Religious indoctrination in public schools.
273kelvin comments on Jul 6, 2019:
As Marionville has stated Uganda was based on the UK system. Here is my experience with it. I went to a church of England (C of E) state school. It has often been mentioned that the C of E is an inoculation against religion. My experience was thus. Morning assembly constituted school news followed by prayers and hymns. Where gods love would be attempted to be instilled into you by the same sadistic bastards who would quite happily smack your hand with a ruler for any and all infractions of rules or insubordination. Hymns would be mouthed and mumbled through, only when something caught our attention like "Jerusalem" or the odd Christmas carol, could we be arsed giving any voice. R.E. (religious education) was 1-hour compulsory mixed bag. Primary school, the basics of Christianity. Later we got an ex-missionary who was quite free-thinking and would open up discussions on such subjects as abortion. Surprisingly, taking the pro-choice stance. After him, we ended up with a last chance no-hope teacher. who we all knew was only there fill in the hour. Add to all this, interminable, dia Sundays. TV limited to late evening and all the shops/pubs closed. This has left me and most of my contemporaries with a healthy contempt for the god squad. I am not bitter or spiteful. If someone wants to walk that road? then good luck to them but I will be in the pub. Which thankfully is now open all day Sunday.

if there is not God, I would like to know where did everything come from?
273kelvin comments on Jul 2, 2019:
It is only a simple question if you can only accept simple answers. For example; "Why is the sky blue?" "Because god made it blue" or "It is the refraction of sunlight caused by the earth atmosphere, leaving us just the blue end of lights spectrum to see". The former is an adequate answer to shut up a 5-year-old but grown-ups require truthful if more complex answers. To ask "Where did everything come from" is easy to ask but far from easy to answer. If you require simple answers to complex questions then all you will get is lies. Be that from the pulpit or the political hustings. There are smarter people than me who can explain the big bang theory. Yes, it is a theory and not a fact but it is the best idea we have at this time to answer your question. The real differences between it and creationism are that it is formed from observable data, it can be altered or changed when better ideas or new data comes along and no one is going to be burnt at the stake for disagreeing with it.

Or "Where are you off to at this time?" "I'm just off to the mall to hang out" "Really?" "Honest dad" "Don't let me find out that you've been to that library" "Dad, you treat me like a kid sometimes" Books would get a kind of retro cool that vinyl has in music.

273kelvin comments on Jun 29, 2019:
This is female sexuality and genetics. Most people know that guys are programmed to cast their seed in a wide net. However, there are two archetypes. Let's call them Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts. Mick, as we know, has had lots of women (the Stones song "Some Girls" originally had 80 verses) but Charlie has been faithful to his wife all of their married life. The selfish gene inside every woman is attracted to both. Charlie is a good provider, he will take care of any offspring and ensure that they will reach adulthood well fed and healthy. Mick will bugger off to the next conquest but will give you a sexy kid that (if they survive) that will have no problem spreading their seed. Therefore, it is best for her to have at least one child with a Mick type but settle down with a Charlie. I watched a documentary on this subject. In it, a young couple had to record not only all their sexual activity but he had to wear a condom (the contents of which were analyzed) and she took her temperature re ovulation. It is a little known fact that men ejaculate not only reproductive sperm but also "killer sperm". The object of these is to kill any cuckoo squigglies left there by another guy. The young women had to go away for the weekend at a work conference. Surprisingly, she ovulated 2 weeks early, making her fertile whilst she was away. When she came back he had 90% killer sperm come out of him.
It's a PERFECT day today! At least for the mathematicians out there.

273kelvin comments on Jun 28, 2019:
Masturbation is and by now would be the default option. A third party, of either a prostitute or worse an affair, could be disastrous. Even with the wife's permission. She does not want to address the issue, so counseling although ruled out can be brought in by the back door. If he reads and watches a lot of sex therapist manuals. He could use the techniques without telling his wife. For example, most recommend massage as an ice breaker. The idea is that they give each other a massage with sex off the agenda. In most cases, it comes back in but he has to be prepared to have a hard on the size of Miami and not push it. If she is reluctant to try things like this then he has to be very honest with her. By that, I mean VERY honest. He has to tell her how he feels. That sex for him is not just a base act but the feeling of intimacy that he misses. How lonely she is making him feel and if need be, he needs to cry.

It is the age old question of "Would you rather have them inside the tent pissing out or outside the tent pissing in?" In the UK the church has very little hold or influence on govt. It does have a few guaranteed crossbench MPs in the lords (our senate). They do sometimes argue for things like a reduction of the term when legal abortions can be carried out. This is in response to improving medical technology. More often they will call out the govt on things like reducing welfare payments. Religious education is compulsory in UK schools but from what I hear its a broad spectrum of different religions. Not one defining one now.

Should we all become teetotalers because there are alcoholics?
273kelvin comments on Jun 18, 2019:
I don`t quite agree with the post. Your argument goes roughly like this. Just because religion has the potential for great harm like alcohol or the internet doesn't mean that it is inherently bad. The big difference is that booze or the net do not seek to impose on others. Sure drunken revelry may wake us up on the weekend but nobody would suggest that we close down TV and shops in order that people can visit bars instead. As was the law in the UK when I was young, regarding churches on Sundays. No one is saying that we should cease teaching established science and simply make children surf the net for answers because all internet is true "So sayeth Albert Einstein, inventor of the lightbulb". What makes religion inherently bad is the notion of absolute certainty and moral superiority. You may believe that Bud light is the best drink in the world? A religious person would seek to impose that belief on all bars and the populace. Even in its mildest form, religion seeks to control the lives not only of its members but others as well. Sometimes this can be for the good, other times not so. What makes the difference is no matter how strongly the secular person may believe in any given subject and seek to impose their will. They cannot claim a divine right.

Without the "My lover done done me wrong" songs there would be hardly any music as we know it. I have been there and got the retro t-shirt. In the end, I had to kill her. Not in real life but in a story which I emailed to her. She phoned me last week ostensibly to inquire how I was. I forced myself to be cold and offhand. Any show of emotion either way would have left the door open. Its been a long dark road but I'm seeing the light now. https://youtu.be/82yNxiF-T4A "She`d love to kill me. Just to have it on her mind"

Interesting choices for a provisional go. Some Ideas about them 1, Louse Armstong's great song. However, when I listened to this version on the radio whilst working with a younger guy. It was he that commentated that it was a totally unnecessary cover. The original being so sweet and all. I thought about it and listened. Then disagreed, Satchmo is singing with old eyes. If it really is such a wonderful world then young eyes should be able to sing it too. https://youtu.be/wRMrAQuccEo
I'm interested in getting opinions on the places in which you live. Do you love it or hate it?
273kelvin comments on May 30, 2019:
I live in south Liverpool. I don't think that I would like to live anywhere else. But let me tell you why I moved here 1st. It was about 25 years ago, not long after my divorce. I met a guy in a bar and stuck up a friendship. We went back to his and I lent him some money. The next weekend I tried to find his flat. I knew the number, not the building so I looked around for something familiar. As I wandered through the park I saw a young woman on her own under a tree reading a book. Several things struck me; a. on her own, b, reading a book, c, it did not have a flower on the cover. I said to myself "I want to live here". I have not been disappointed. It is multi-cultural, bohemian and left wing. Sure it has problems with crime like most cities but it has scoucers too and we won't ever let you walk alone. Btw if anyone would like to come for this festival PM me. https://www.africaoye.com/

Although many would believe these guys have no chance. They are strong political vectors*. If left unchecked their influence will affect your lives. Just look at the anti-abortion laws already enacted in Alabama and Georgia. *Mansplain, A political vector is rather like those maths problems you used to get. ie. "A boat heading North at 5mph across a 1-mile wide river that has east to the west current of 3mph and a wind that is blowing SE at 3mph. How far east of the perpendicular will it land and how long will it take?"

273kelvin comments on May 25, 2019:
Pitbulls were bred for fighting other dogs. If you take away that evolutionary imperative then you lose the better parts of their breed like courage. Aggression without courage leaves only a bully. Of course, I am not advocating dog fighting but without that selective. Then all the litter gets to breed too. My brother had a Staffordshire bull terrier. It was a lovely dog and very safe but he maintained that the breed should be neutered to die out, for the aforementioned reasons

Forman "Why aren't you working?" Worker "There is no work to do" "Why can`t you just pretend that you're working then?" "Why can't you just pretend that you've seen me working then?" Number 3 on the list is I think is "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.” What could be more blasphemous than lying not only to your family but to god as well? To be fair you went far further down the road of paying lip service to his bollocks than anyone had the right to expect. Unfortunately, this is not the only case of this sort to be posted on here. It seems that the veneer of Christianity seems more important than actual belief. The best thing is to be true to yourself and teach your children to do the same. If they end up believing or not, it will be their choice and not something imposed upon them for the sake of appearances.

The new testament was spun for a Roman audience. The Easter story is a prime example. It takes place at Passover. This is a highly politically charged time for the Jews. Many years ago I celebrated this festival and as you may know, it tells the Exodus story. For jews, it is rather like the 4th of July. Culminating in a prayer that says "Next year in Jerusalem". Even Jews who live there say this prayer. So imagine if you will, an occupied land at a time of great nationalist fervor. Add to that a legend of a messiah. One who will free Jews and give them back their homeland. Great steps were also taken to make sure that JC ticked all the right boxes. An ass was provided for his entrance etc. Small wonder that Romans wanted him gone and so they crucified him, as was their way. If the Jews had wanted this? they could have easily charged him with blasphemy and stoned him to death. No, it was a political act but this is glossed over to such an extent that that Christians have been antisemitic for millennia now
Here is question.
273kelvin comments on May 15, 2019:
Not such a problem in the UK. The first thing I see because it's at the top of the page in POF is smoking. Then I skip down to filters. There is no point if they only accept msgs from under 61s. As for religious? the UK does not have the same climate of god squad mafia. Organized religion is small and on the wain. Churchgoers will date amongst themselves anyway Those that say they believe but don't go to church can be okay to date too, as mostly they keep their beliefs to themselves. I must say that I did have a fantastic two-night sexual liaison with a Nigerian lady, who believed in god quite strongly. Times spent not exploring each other's bodies and delights, was spent discussing theology.
Apart from religious rules or values, why do we wear clothes?
273kelvin comments on May 15, 2019:
Lots of reasons. Apart from to keep warm or stave off sunburn. Sexual modesty, which is not just confined to the religious. Also, clothes say a lot about the person. They are a form of expression, a canvas upon which we paint how we would like the world to view us. My only bugbear about modern clothes is how bland men's fashion is nowadays. So grey and dull, I came of age in the 1970s when men's attire dared to be colourful and outrageous.

Meg has been a flat cat most of her life. It was only 6 years ago when I moved to a ground floor apartment that she had the chance to explore the outside world. At first, I was very worried about cars etc. but I could not leave the windows shut in summer. As it happens she is quite timid and only roams as far as my driveway. So just for her, I made a cat-flap to fit into the sliding sash window

Relationships 101: "How can you expect your partner to fancy you if no one else does?" You are going a lot of turmoil atm. what with jobs etc. New love can give you inspiration and motivation (if any are needed). It can also put a smile on your face, which is a powerful commodity in job interviews. A positive outlook is infectious. The lady that you spoke to on the sofa proves that you are a fanciable chap. Work on that guy and use it. Take confidence in that. If nothing else? it is a good reason to attack that neglected housework. I hear a lot about the negative aspects of falling in love again from you and having recently crashed badly out of that scenario, I can say it is devastating. Would I do it again? Fuck yeah! in a New York minute! You only get one go at life, it's up to you to catch the waves and ride them the best way you can. If you wipe out? then that's all part of life and getting wet in any sense is what it's all about.

Should we respect other people's beliefs?
273kelvin comments on May 7, 2019:
You can respect their rights and/or their person. As to beliefs? It is a question of tolerance. For example; you may not touch on the subject with a work colleague or family member, perhaps remove your hat (if you're a man) when visiting an old church on holiday. To my mind, I only counter-attack. If they don't push it? Then I won't. If they do? then they deserve all they get.
