Love me and worship me or I will punish you for ever. Sounds pretty convincing.
Patriotism is not obedience to government...
Moravian comments on May 21, 2019:
Patriotism or national pride is the feeling of love, devotion and sense of attachment to a homeland and alliance with other citizens who share the same sentiment. This attachment can be a combination of many different feelings relating to one's own homeland, including ethnic, cultural, political or historical aspects. It encompasses a set of concepts closely related to, but mutually exclusive from those of nationalism. The more usual definition of Patriotism. just watered down nationalism really.

Moravian comments on May 21, 2019:
Obviously we are unlikely to know why the Jewish people adopted monotheism as they were originally polytheists. It is possible that they picked it up while in exile in Babylonia possibly from Zoroaster. To make themselves the favourites of this god was a spectacularly good move as it justified their aggressive and warlike behaviour.

Moravian comments on May 19, 2019:
It is often said that Islam needs an enlightenment a bit like the European enlightenment of the 17th and 18th century. It sounds like the USA needs one as well.

Moravian comments on May 19, 2019:
I see that as well. the effect that a religious upbringing has on some people seems to be very dramatic. There seems to be a longing to cling on to the artificial "comfort" the religion gives.

Opinion: No Religious Exemptions From Vaccines
Moravian comments on May 17, 2019:
Not really difficult. It should be made compulsory apart from for health reasons. In 2016 there were 5000 cases of measles in Europe. last year there were 80000 and in the UK cases tripled. Reason enough to make it compulsory

Flat Earthers, and the Rise of Science Denial in America | Opinion
Moravian comments on May 15, 2019:
I posted the same article this morning. The flat earthers are a very small group and can really be dismissed as cranks. More dangerous are the climate change deniers. Especially when they are in positions of authority.. I liked the authors comment. "Not all christians are flat earthers but nearly all flat earthers are christians" .

Kushner Struggles to Answer Immigration Questions

Moravian comments on May 13, 2019:
Since I bought my first house at the age of 33, I have lived in 9 different places. If I include rented flats and houses prior to this I could add a further 12, a total of 21. This is probably quite unusual for the UK where people don't tend to move so much.
Why "awe inspiring" photo of mom-daughter pilot team is "good for aviation"
Moravian comments on May 13, 2019:
Maybe good for aviation, but aviation is not good for us. Trains,buses and cars can be electric but planes rely on jet fuel pumping out megatonnes of CO2 each year. the only alternative is biofuels which are just as damaging to the environment.

Moravian comments on May 12, 2019:
I think i see what you are saying. For one thing the dark ages when the Roman catholic church was dominating Europe scientific advancement virtually stopped but The USA which is by far the most religious country is at the forefront of the destruction of the world we live. Our only hope is that the science that is causing the damage will also reverse it.

Moravian comments on May 12, 2019:
Journalist John Soper has written a book called "if only they didn't speak English". It talks about the cultural differences between the UK and the USA.The attitude to religion is one big difference. As you say it is really no big deal here.

We are making progress. But is it fast enough ?.I read book recently on climate change written in 2006 and the author was bemoaning the fact that in the UK we only produce 2% of our electricity from renewable resources. Earlier this year it up to 40% and for a week none was produced from coal powered stations. My hope is that those lunatics don't try any of those mad geoengineering projects that are being talked about. The results could be disasterous.

Moravian comments on May 10, 2019:
My girlfriend told me last night, "I'm leaving you! I found out that you're a pedophile!" I replied, "That's a big word for a 5 years old!" A sick joke to suit the occasion
Do you blush easily?
Moravian comments on May 10, 2019:
I was a very shy child and blushed if anyone looked at me. it lasted even into my early thirties before I managed to control it. Even then i suffered from social anxiety and in my job I had to make frequent presentations which I found very difficult. Two things helped a lot. I got a prescription of beta blockers and taking one before a presentation or social gathering helped a lot and I joined the speakers club in my town. I would highly recommend that for anyone who finds difficulty in speaking in public.
It's like choosing between the plague and the measles, between fascism and dictatorship . . . .

No. it is a barbaric practice and totally unnecessary apart from a few cases. It is not so common in the UK apart from religious reasons but seems to be common practice in the USA.

Moravian comments on May 8, 2019:
Depends what you mean by total isolation.

There was a an early pop song with the words "people who need people are the luckiest people in the world". Absolute nonsense. People who are self contained and can live without human contact are the lucky ones.
