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

Interesting books in this list of 53 Books You Won’t Be Able To Put Down

I've read a few books on this list and those were excellent. So I'm definitely going to try a few more!
What happens next? There's only one way to find out.

Frightening overview of announced targets by IS for execution during this month of their Ramadan. We're not yet half way this year's Ramadan, and IS has already met several of their announced targets. With 16 days to go for the second half of Ramadan more terror attacks are surely still in their planning stage. These IS terrorists believe that dying at a Jihad attack during their holy month will grant them an even higher reward in heaven. Sadly more people will die in the coming weeks, caused by this barbaric stone-age death-cult. 
ISIS will seize new land, launch 'lone wolf attacks' and activate 'sleeper cells' in countries as far as the Philippines by the end of the holy month of Ramadan, respected terrorism analysts say.

+Michael Vaughan The world is content to let Muslims fight each other and to let Islam implode.
First, the US has a 3 trillion $$$ debt from the Afghanistan, Iraq wars and thousands of dead and maimed soldiers. The American people DO NOT want the US getting involved in another middle east mess! 
Second, the US is today the largest exporter of petroleum products on earth. 
Third: The US is not getting the oil from Iraq—China is.

One more Bill Murray quote: "This is not a dress rehearsal; this is your life".

People who only think of a promised afterlife (in heaven) forget that this is your one life and you don't get a second chance. And there's no shred of evidence or proof that there is anything waiting for you after your body dies. Make the best of this life because it's the only life you've got!

German gymnasium school demands the students to wear skin-covering clothes in order to not offend nearby Syrian Muslim refugees

According to a local politician, the Muslim boys can't handle seeing Western girls wearing tank-tops, shorts or skirts, and they will harass or assault the girls.

What an utterly pathetic example of Dhimmitude ! When we give in to their ridiculous demands we are squandering what our ancestors have fought so hard for to achieve: freedom, equality, and peace.

What an utter disgrace!
A school in Bavaria has sent a letter home to parents warning them not to let their daughters wear revealing blouses or short skirts, because emergency accommodation for refugees has been set up next to the gym.

+Drazenko Djuricic​ I agree. Our country's regressing into the dark ages as we speak.

+Hayo Jongbloed​ our politicians are getting more religulous. The religious authority here (JAKIM) feels they're entitled to everyone (except the VIPs) even guys who dont go to Friday prayers. :/

Since the very beginning of G+ I was enthusiastic about this wonderful environment that Google created where we could share our thoughts, ideas and interests, and meet like-minded individuals from all over the world to talk to, learn from and have fun with. 

Before the birth of G+ I wasn't into social media, but G+ was different and I just 'got' it right away. It's brilliant and I love spending my time here on a daily basis. I made friends here and I love sharing posts that I know my followers (circlers) will be interested in, while at the same time enjoying all the posts that those I've circled share on their profiles.

These four years have been a great ride and I am eager to see how G+ will develop and grow during in the next four years! 

Happy Anniversary G+ !
 
I just thought I would mark today with a post I made four years ago, welcoming everyone on board just a few minutes after we flipped the switch and launched Google+. 

Over the course of the week that followed, I decided to try something a bit crazy and not really "traditional Google:" I spent lots of time running around the service, talking to everyone I encountered, and welcoming them aboard. What I found was that there were tremendous numbers of people out there who wanted to talk: not just about the service, but about all the things they cared about in their lives, from their pets to geopolitics. And the results changed my life.

It's been an amazing four years here: I've seen the project grow from a crazy idea to a giant, thriving community, spread around the world.  I've had so many conversations on so many subjects, and learned so much in the process, that I can't even count. I've learned to write much more effectively, and what it is to have a real conversation about incredibly sensitive subjects where people nonetheless treat each other with respect and seriousness. I've made an amazing group of friends here, people I love and trust and talk to every day. And I even met the love of my life, my brilliant and beloved wife, through the service.

So looking back on four years of what we've built here, I can say: this is going really well. I'm exceptionally glad to have met all of you, and to have had some part in building this community we share, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next four years take us!

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.

Aardig museum. Aantal mooie stukken in de collectie maar ook heel veel moderne kunst die mij niet aanspreekt. Met museumkaart gratis toegang en dan is het wel aardig om eens bezocht te hebben.

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