I am a confirmed non believer in any gods or supernatural beings and will remain so unless I am shown evidence to the contrary. I dislike being called an atheist as it is a label attached non believers by theists.

15 Rare Photos of Black Rosie the Riveters | Stuff Mom Never Told You
Moravian comments on Jun 9, 2019:
Great story and pics. Racism was certainly rife back then. Apparently many black GIs were billeted in southern England along with their white counterparts prior to D Day. Apparently there was little or no interaction between the black and white soldiers ( how did that work in the battlefield) but the locals welcomed them equally. There were quite a few GI brides taken back to the US but only with white soldiers. The black soldiers were not allowed to marry local girls so there were quite a few mixed race babies left behind,
Separating Facts About Clergy Abuse From Fiction

Moravian comments on Jun 8, 2019:
There is a TV series shown in the UK fronted by Ben Fogle where he spends a week with people living "off the grid" Some families some couple and some single persons, both male and female. Fascinating to get an insight into the lives of those people but I think they are the exception and most would struggle without the modern amenities we take for granted.

Disagree. All animals have evolved to take instructions from their parents. It is an essential part of survival like not walking in front of a bus or wearing adequate clothing in winter. It is only when they are mature enough to weigh up the available information that some may decide to leave religion. Of course they are indoctrinated hence the Jesuits saying "Give me the child to the age of seven and I will give you the man "

What is your response to evil and suffering?
Moravian comments on Jun 3, 2019:
I have had several discussions with theists about "evil". I submit that it cannot exist as a separate entity. There can be evil acts or even evil people and it can make me angry and have sympathy for those affected by an evil act. Suffering can be caused by evil acts such as the Buddhists treatment of the Rohingya people in Myanmar or to an individual because of illness and just bad luck. The response should be again to have sympathy and help if possible. No need for nay supernatural nonsense.

After Virginia Beach Shootings, Hope Still Looms - The Atlantic
Moravian comments on Jun 2, 2019:
It is easy to blame the NRA but it seems to be a cultural problem. Instead of going and getting drunk and getting in a fight anyone with a grievance gets a gun and shoots up his school,church,workplace. Note, the shooters are invariably male. There is an epidemic of knife crime in London at the moment. There is a stabbing virtually every day. There was a similar situation in Glasgow a few years ago but the police and authorities got to grips with it and now stabbings are very rare. The Metropolitan police in London have approached their Glasgow counterparts for help in combatting the problem. The love of guns seems to be so ingrained in the American Psyche that it will be difficult to eradicate but with the will I'm sure it can be done although it will probably take a generation or more.

Moravian comments on May 30, 2019:
Lots of words have different meanings. I was talking with my partners daughter in law and she said her father was a keen skier. I said I was also a keen skier but not very competent. This completely confused her and eventually we talked about something else. I figured out later that to her keen meant good or competent not enthusiastic as I understand the word to mean. It is also dangerous to make ironic comments as any comment is taken at face value. The USA certainly is an irony free zone.

The roads leading to the beach have been given names of US servicemen killed in the landings and although I am not in the slightest bit spiritual I did feel a certain "atmosphere" in the place. It was very quiet and there was no birdsong.
