Anthony Shaw replied to Joan Denoo's discussion Why Do They (Still) Follow Donald Trump? Fear and Authority
"OK - an alternative view from this side of the Atlantic. Trump is a celebrity, people tend to follow celebrities. Forget the fact that Kasich is probably the only GOP candidate who knows how to balance a budget - does it matter if nobody knows who…"

Getting Religion

Nontheists understand that religion is wrong. We discuss religions, rant about them, and fight them. Do we understand them? The goal of here is to learn about religions, how they developed, what they beleive, what makes them tick.See More

Anthony Shaw commented on Buford Twain's group The Exit
"Hi Daniel, my memory of the painkillers when I was in hospital was just as you noted - they didn't work. That said I was in more pain after the 3 operations than I was before. I had managed to go to work for two days following the attack, and…"

Anthony Shaw commented on Buford Twain's group The Exit
"I nearly died once - after my second operation in 2008 following my heart attack I was in a coma for nearly two days. No views of heaven (not sure what it is supposed to look like anyway - a load of angels sitting  on clouds playing harps?).…"

"Anthony actually - but don't worry about the mistake .... Tony to my friends. I was just staring out the window at some of the local crows (interesting how what were traditionally rural birds adapt to urban life) - it's been a fascination…"

"It sounds like you intend on getting involved here. Most members don't. Two members of "Hanging with Friends" group from The Netherlands are Ian and Plinius (Chris). I know of none from Germany although there are some."

About Me:
I am a British national who has lived in Germany for the past 14 years (9 previous years in the Netherlands, 3 in France, 1 in Belgium, and I worked for 7 months in Norway and 4 months in the US - I get around). I am married (no kids, thankfully), a pragmatic European liberal, and I make a point of keeping my emotions under control, but as is the case with many European liberals, the continued Islamisation of Europe is a serious concern (put me in the Sam Harris school of thought where Islam is concerned).
I started out life as a teacher, spent 20+ years working in IT, and these days I work part-time from home as a translator (German, French or Dutch into (UK) English. Though I would still like a full-time job in Germany in IT (not much chance, but anyway).
The UK's imminent departure from the EU is also a major concern (I cannot see one logical argument in favour), and I may well become a German citizen in the next few months, though the financial impact of the UK decision cannot be avoided.
I would like to be tolerant and open-minded about all things, but with religion (particularly Islam) it is sometimes very difficult to do so. My wife is a not overly zealous Buddhist, and I have no problems with that.
