With absolute certainty I can say I will never date anyone who is religious!
Moravian comments on Apr 29, 2019:
I dated a religious woman for three years. She had many admirable qualities and our differing views only occasionally caused friction. She was very materialistic and dumped me because I could not afford to " Wine and dine" her in the manner she wanted and expected, so in no way did she follow "the ...

The (Fake) Power of Prayer
Metahuman comments on May 3, 2019:
Actually, the placebo effect has been well proven to be very effective in many cases, somewhere around 23% if I'm not mistaken. So as a matter of fact, under certain circumstances, prayer can be just as effective as certain prescription medication. Scientifically proven. Nothing to do with God of ...
Moravian replies on May 3, 2019:
I remember a trial held in a hospital in England. A group of patients recovering from heart surgery were divide and half of them were told that prayers were being said to aid their recovery and half were told nothing. The group who were told they had prayers being said took longer to recover than the other group. I know it was a tiny survey and of little consequence but interesting non the less.

Moravian replies on May 1, 2019:
@genessa I think the police and security forces see it as an impediment to them keeping tabs on potential terrorists. They are already accused of victimisation of Muslims with stop and search powers and if the meaning of Islamophobia is broadened it would make their job more difficult for example asking Muslim woman to remove face veils would be considered an attack on "Muslimness" Personally I cannot see how Islamaphobia can be called racism as any race can be a Muslim.

Virginity is still prized in some cultures. God/Men "born of a virgin" was not uncommon then and you will note that the earliest gospel of Mark did not include the nativity scene so it was probably added by later writers to make Jesus more godlike. The Roman Catholic church still venerate the virgin Mary

Moravian replies on Apr 26, 2019:
@johnprytz I would say that they come in to the same category as bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster. something was seen and an explanation made. billions of people believe in a divine creator and I remember getting a fit of the giggles when at sunday school and the minister talked about the father, the son, and the holy ghost. People like being scared by the idea of hauntings and ghost stories but it doesn't mean they exist.

Jacar, this guy in a YouTube nobody with very dodgy ideas about female sexuality and the age of consent. He is a racist and is banned from many UK establishments. This guy recently caused controversy by joking about raping a British MP. He is dreadful. He is also a rabid brexiteer.

Moravian replies on Apr 25, 2019:
@Jacar Very simplistic reasoning. Virtually all the terrorist attacks have been politically motivated. Politics and religion are a poisonous mixture and the political situation in the middle east and north Africa is the result of meddling by the west. After the break up of the Ottoman empire lines were drawn on a map to create countries with no thought given to ethnic. religious or tribal divisions. The only way to keep a lid on the unrest is to have a hard man despotic dictator as were in Libya, Iraq and Syria. The US in their wisdom decide to remove the dictators and try to replace them with their form of democracy and we are seeing the result.

@Matias Read it and still feel the same way. I think you should read the bible again. Particularly the first books of the old testament. Nowhere does it say that the universe was created 6000 years ago. This was from an Irish clergyman who worked it out from extrapolating the genealogies listed in the old testament.

@johnprytz I would say it is similar to the creation of gods and witches. An attempt to explain something they didn't understand. The original meaning that a ghost is the spirit of a dead person can obviously be dismissed but the word can have different meanings in different cultures and in a modern context. I remember the passage from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance." Phaedrus said to his son "there are no such things as ghosts" and his son replied that his schoolmate said that there were."What's his name ?" the reply was Johnny White Bear, Ah that's different said Phaedrus.
