What is a Secular State? - WorldAtlas.com
Moravian comments on Jul 6, 2019:
As Marionville says Queen Elizabeth is the head of the Church of England. Typical of many people who equate England with the UK. I notice the UK is not in the list and I wonder how many of the countries listed are realy secular.

Moravian comments on Jul 6, 2019:
I think if you have a look at Jainism you may find that it is a lot better than most. I too admired Buddhism but the persecution of the Rohingya people in Myanmar made me think again, although the more westernised disciplines are more about self improvement than worshiping any diety

Moravian comments on Jul 6, 2019:
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. It was something I had to do which spoiled my sunday but that is all. Maybe it was because we had no Christian rituals or indoctrination at home.
Not a song but I thought y'all might appreciate this

It is always a problem for pets when we humans like to make loud bangs for some strange reason . Years ago my cross lab bitch disappeared on 5 Nov, when we celebrated the non blowing up of parliament by setting off noisy fireworks, I found her a few days later at a nearby dog shelter where someone had taken her after finding her wandering a few miles from home. For the rest of her life she was terrified of any loud noise. Maybe sedation is the only answer

Moravian comments on Jul 5, 2019:
I thought the sun always shone in your fair country but of course it is mid winter with you. Most people here dry their clothes outside but be careful in the ultra religious western isles. If you have washing out on a saturday evening someone will phone to remind you. It is sacreligious to have washing out on a sunday. I frequently visit N.E. USA and I have yet to see any washing hanging outside. I wonder is it because it is against byelaws or are people frightened that their clothes will be stolen.
Why would a man write to me for another guy? A scam?

Moravian comments on Jul 2, 2019:
Talk about stating the bleeding obvious.Spoken arrogantly from a Judeo/Christian perspective. What about the hundreds of Hindu gods,Norse gods, Greek and Roman gods ?. We in the west are so indoctrinated by Abrahamic mythology that we cannot escape it. We should take a step back to the times before primitive man invented gods to explain what he didn't understand and start afresh.

Has anybody dealt with a passive aggressive partner? Is there any hope for that type of ...
Moravian comments on Jul 2, 2019:
I have heard this expression so much recently and I was never sure exactly what it meant so I looked up a definition as follows -:" passive aggressive behaviour takes many forms but can generally be described as a non-verbal aggression that manifests in negative behaviour. It is where you are angry with someone but do not or cannot tell them. Instead of communicating honestly when you feel upset, annoyed," Now I am sure I am going to be shot down here but in my experience women are more likely to .exhibit this type of behaviour than men. Eg the man comes home from work and gets a frosty reception because of some slight, real or imagined and he has no idea what he has done whereas the man is more likely to be overtly aggressive in words or actions..

Moravian comments on Jul 1, 2019:
Could it be because of the European enlightenment ?.Many people emigrated from Europe before and during the enlightenment so they had the earlier religious mindset. Apart from the Eastern and Western seaboards the USA has been fairly insular and inward looking so the strict religious beliefs were retained . Just a thought.

Care to share your favorite bad argument for the existence of God?
Moravian comments on Jun 30, 2019:
Do you mean the Judeo/Christian god ?. I can see a good argument for not believing in it. Just read the first books of the old testament. An obscure middle eastern tribe are chosen by the creator of the universe to be his chosen people and he then helps them to defeat their enemies and take over lands he promised to them. Actually a polytheistic tribe adopt monotheism whilst in exile in Babylon, possibly taken from Zoroaster and they then use this adopted god to justify their warlike acquisitive behaviour

Moravian comments on Jun 28, 2019:
IF you believe that an all powerful being that created the universe chose an obscure middle eastern tribe to be his chosen people and helped them to defeat their enemies and populate lands promised to them then you are delusional. Read the pentateuch with an open mind and it is apparent that this polytheistic tribe gradually adopted monotheism to aid their acquisitive behaviour,. so why be agnostic unless of course if you believe that some of the Hindu,Norse,Roman,Greek, other gods may exist.

Really ?. i have been riding motorcycles since I was 16 and although I have had girlfriends on the pillion at times to me it should be a solo exercise.
