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.

I doubt if many people came to non belief the way that many came to religious belief. Most believers were indoctrinated from birth whilst although some non believers were never indoctrinated many were and in later life saw how nonsensical belief is. I wonder how many non believers took up religion later in life?. Very few I would imagine.

I attended sunday school from the age of 5 to 15 in the Church of Scotland, which is quite puritanical compared to some branches of Christianity but I cannot remember any of this.

Moravian comments on Jul 18, 2019:
There are a few atheists on here but not many.Most call themselves agnostics.and I would reckon a few are closet theists. I was made to go to sunday school/church as a youngster but as soon as I left home I stopped going and took no interest in religion at all. I dated a religious woman a few years ago and she tried to get me interested so I did a bit of research and read widely including the new English bible. I quickly realised that the whole thing is based on mythology and has no factual basis whatsoever.

A hunter was gored by the deer he thought he shot and killed
Moravian comments on Oct 26, 2019:
This story was widely reported over here and although it is sad for anyone to die in such circumstances I'm sure there are a few animal rightists cheering for the deer. What gets me is why was the hunter using a muzzle loading rifle.?. If a second shot is required to dispatch an animal it would take ages to reload and fire. There will probably be some gun lovers who will support it's use but if you go hunting use a modern hunting rifle not a museum piece.

Chiropractors are bullshit | The Outline
Moravian comments on Sep 2, 2019:
I have mixed feelings about this. I have never tried one but my partner swears by one who treated her in Bridgeport Con. She was involved in a car accident and for months afterwards had excruciating headaches. Regular doctors were useless but a chiropractor cured the problem after manipulation of her back and neck. There are no doubt some charlatans out there but the best are probably useful for limited back or neck problems.

Moravian comments on Nov 11, 2019:
In 1971 I was sharing a house in the West Highlands with three friends/colleagues. One gloriously sunny February Sunday three of us intended to do hill walking. I had a hangover,not uncommon in those days so I called off. The other two set off but only one came back. They had been traversing a steep slope on frozen snow and one guy must have slipped and slid down the slope and over a cliff. He died from severe head injuries. He was 21 years old. Neither were experienced hill walkers. both were from the south of England, and neither had crampons or an ice axes. I still go hill walking in winter but always take an ice axe and crampons. Although the hills here are rarely over 4000 ft in height we can experience arctic conditions most months of the year. . .
