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

I was raised as both, if one can believe it's possible, as a catholic and a believer in science, so I have always questioned everything I was told to be a complete truth. Since my Mother Graduated in Philosophy and used to teach History, she taught me to question the reasons of everything and that helped me not to become a believer, but still have faith - as awkward as it can be.

Humanity is one MAJORLY FUCKED UP species, to invent and use these torture devices on their fellow human beings! Just thinking about the countless men and women who have been gruesomely tortured and murdered this way makes me sick in my stomach.

So true—and yet—violence is down, down, down in the developed world.

On their final trial as village LOOKOUTS, a troop of young scouts are ambushed by the very creature they were hunting. After a violent battle the lone survivor, Pehn, escapes into the shadows of the Eyrewood, a mysterious and deadly forest that is home to all manner of wild creatures. The most horrifying of all is the Basilisk, a winged titan with the power to turn its prey into stone. This is the beast the troop of LOOKOUTS were seeking, and now it hunts for Pehn.

Well made and appetising short film. Makes me wish to see more of this as a long feature film!

Yeah, except the pic is not the true story ;) http://qz.com/791437/presidential-debate-hillary-clinton-in-florida-and-the-story-behind-the-viral-millenial-selfie-photo/ "In a video filmed by none other than a heckling Trump supporter, you’ll see that after Clinton walks into the room, she says: “Anyone who wants a selfie turn around right now.”"
I'm afraid we've fallen victim to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias We actually like feeling superior to these selfie taking mobs ;)

Excellent TED ed video showing the conditions that enabled Adolf Hitler to gain control of Germany. Under similar circumstances this could happen again...

Climate Change is happening, and it's happening at an alarming rate all over the Globe. Basically: Humanity is doomed and we did it to ourselves. Our species will go extinct long before we would be technologically capable of leaving our Solar system and spreading throughout the Universe.

So long, and thanks for all the fish ...
The worst predicted impacts of climate change are starting to happen — and much faster than climate scientists expected

The people who think that it's alright to vote for Trump just because they dislike Hillary Clinton, and through that action actually help Trump to win the election, are accomplice to the global disaster that will certainly happen through the actions of this major threat to Humanity!
 
Awful prospect.

Excellent rant against the possibility of a Trump presidency. Not at all pro-Clinton, but strongly against Trump!

There are still many people who support him. He still has a possibility of winning the election because of the way he rants.

It is my dream to see this come to fruition during my lifetime! The first humans landing on Mars and starting the very first colonisation of another planet by Humanity. I'm really excited about this awesome adventure!!!

I'm reading Red Mars, a scientifically, although old, quite realistic sci-fi book.
It makes it clear that getting to mars is only a very very small part of the adventure.
Still, it would be amazing to be part of a generation that started spreading among the stars.

I got to question the real question about climate change.  If the climate change people can make people change there ways.  Explain New Orleans, new World Trade Center, the east coast in whole?  If all are going to be under water in ten years.  WHY ARE NOT THE CLIMATE CHANGE PEOPLE STOPPING THE REBUILDING? I also read about the Piltdown man being hard core science facts. And ones science life was destroyed if agreed with Plate Tectonic.

I remember watching that Correspondents Dinner where President Obama repeatedly ridiculed Donald Trump. Seeing the expression on his face while taking the blows, I had a strong feeling that it wasn't the end of that, and he would desire to be vindicated.
Winning the presidential election this coming November would be the ultimate pay back for him. And in a certain way it could be considered Obama's fault when he drove Trump to run for president through his mockery that night...
Donald Trump was the focus of President Obama’s jokes at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner. It was there that Trump resolved to run for president, adviser Roger Stone tells FRONTLINE in “The

"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.
