I feel so lucky to have been raised by Secular Humanist parents!

+Grace Suquib We don't need your "God" to bless us. It's called freedom from religious oppression.

Pfff eerst moet de NL man geemancipeerd worden. Behandelen onze vrouwen zoals ze graag willen. Is die klus eenmaal geklaard, komen ze erachter dat t niet macho is en smachten naar exotische douchebags die ze als vuilnis behandelen. En om dat kenbaar te maken ook nog korte kapsels als pantser/signaal. 
Zucht, onze vrouwen zijn gewoon verwend. 
Heren, groei die baard (en niet op de hipster manier) en word weer een echte man ;P

Holy FUCK this is an incredibly strong comparison and it shows exactly what the entire world is doing wrong in dealing with the threat of Islam!
 
A German's View on Islam - worth reading. This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history... are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.

A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.

'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'

We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.

The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China 's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.

The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.

As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts -- the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and send it on - before it's too late.

Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?) The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.
And we are silent.......

No, idiots! It's just an ancient fairy tale.

Inspiring ode to the Philippines created by a group of tourists on their vacation of a life time. It's undeniably a beautiful country filled with wonderful friendly cheerful people.

Looking forward to visit the Philippines again next year!

Wow, nobody ever told me this before! I'll have to try this...
 
I'll be damned. I had no idea about this. 
Until last week, I used antiperspirant like a klutz. My wallet and undershirts suffered because of my ignorance. Yours need not suffer, too. For 17 years, I had followed the same steps every day....

A Brief History of Everything, featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson

Awesome short (8½ minutes) video in which Tyson explains the origin of the Universe and how this finally culminated in the development of Life on Earth. Brilliantly explained!

We have one shot to reach for the Stars and bring Humanity out of its cradle and into the Universe. We're only a fledgling bird that has spoiled its nest and now either learns to fly and soar, or fail and fall to our death.

Great share, +Tjaart Blignaut! Libertarianism might be good in theory, but it ignores the reality of the human psyche and especially how humans behave in groups. And so, like +Eitan Blumin also said in his reshare of this post: "Welcome to the real world!"
 
Libertarianism is contradicted by social science

I never thought I would hear a psychologist say this outright, but it's true. Humans don't posses the kind of psychology to make libertarian societies work. I wish the article would have elaborated more, because it goes deeper than just three examples. 

Of course this raises a whole set of other questions, but I think there is one thing that should drive our politics: THE FACTS

!! I wonder why there are conservatives at all! This so-called imbalance is actually healthy because it means more people are open minded

I did! It's what makes G+ so different from that 'other' social network where you only communicate with already familiar people. Here on G+ we connect with new people who happen to share similar ideas/views/attitudes/likes/dislikes.

Story
Tagline
"Live and let live!"
Introduction
Short Intro
Mostly your very average guy with a wife, a son and a daughter. Working full time to provide a decent living and enjoy a good life in my spare time.

A little bit of a geek, a little bit of a nerd, a little bit of a gamer, definitely a movie-lover. But I also love to read good books (sci-fi and fantasy mostly) and take long walks in nature (preferably in the mountains of Austria and Switzerland).

My Google passion
I love to keep updated on new technology and the ongoing developments in social media. I'm a big fan of all things Google: Gmail, Google+, Android, Nexus devicesIngress, and I use all of it on a daily basis. In Ingress I chose the Enlightened faction because it suits my progressive outlook at life and my sense of optimism for the future of Mankind. :-)

Travel
I like to travel to new interesting places to experience different sights, sounds and cultures. But I also love to return to my own cosy comfy home again. Countries I've visited so far are: Belgium, Germany, England, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Jordan, Singapore and The Philippines.

Photography
Late 2011 I bought a mirror-less interchangeable lens camera, the Sony NEX C3, which sports an excellent APS-C sensor. Some nice photos taken with it are shared in this G+ photo album here. Please feel free to visit the album and leave comments on my photos there.

My old hobby: pencil drawing
Some 20 years ago I had a hobby of making pencil drawings of beautiful women. Recently I scanned them and put them in an album. A selection of these drawings are visible publicly here. The full album is not publicly visible because of some nudity. Anyone who likes to view all of the uncensored drawings can just ask me for full access to that album.

Belief, or rather lack thereof
I've been born and raised into a Humanist family. I've attended a Protestant-Christian elementary school, not because of the religion but because their education quality was higher than that of the Catholic and the Public elementary schools situated next to it. 
For the same reason I attended a Catholic secondary school because it was better than the Public secondary school. During my teenager years I got involved with the Pentecostal Church but realised it's not for me. I've also studied about Zen Buddhism which is more a philosophy than a religion. More recently I read an abridged Dutch translation of the Quran to know more about that religion as well. 
But all these ventures into different religions make me realise only more that I am an unbeliever to the core of my being. I can't accept or believe in something that denies or conflicts with scientific findings and generally accepted scientific theories. I also don't entertain superstitions or other irrational fears. I prefer rationality. :-) So if you want to classify me, I'd say I am a Secular Humanist.
For any theist (religious believer) who has questions or doubts, this is a good website to visit and read up about it: God is imaginary.
I'm also not interested in engaging in debates/arguments about religion, for all the possible arguments that theists can come up with have already been countered by far greater minds than me, and in a much better way than I ever could. So, any theist who feels like arguing about his/her faith, please go here instead: So you're a theist who wants to comment on an atheist blog, read this first.

Prettig hotel. Vriendelijk personeel. Nette kamer, hoewel het nog wel iets beter stofgezogen zou kunnen worden. Mooie landelijke omgeving.
