Just so you know

Diversity Poster by Juan Martin

For the avoidance of doubt.

Following the recent referendum in the UK I would like to make it clear that this blog is wholly independent.

It continues to welcome all immigrants, refugees, visitors, tourists and travellers.

It does not discriminate by colour, nationality or geographic location.

Nor by sexuality, irrespective of gender, orientation, preference, or transformation (despite finding women by far the most sexually attractive)

Nor by religion or creed (despite being atheist)

Nor by politics (despite being decidedly left of centre)

Nor by physical/mental capability or disability

Nor by age, income, or profession.

Its own beliefs are diversity, tolerance, inclusion, community, human kindness. And the certainty that every life, wherever in the world, whomever they are, is equal.

Just so you know.

    Is there a difference between agnostiscism and atheism? Just curious…
    and I love this post and admire your independent spirit.

      Huge. Look up the definitions. One involves certainty, the other doubt.

        I know the difference. I thought you were an agnostic. Not an atheist.
        My mistake. 🙂

        I did look up the definitions and though I thought I knew the difference, I may not now the difference. I’m afraid to find out! 😉

          I am an atheist. I do not believe in god or gods. I do not use a god or gods or religion to form a basis for moral codes. I believe in a secular society that tolerates religion but does not give it special privileges or treatment. I do not believe religion should be taught in school.

            I understand now. Thank you for explaining your philosophy. I do appreciate it, although we differ in this area. Morality without God seems rather lonely, to me at least. 🙂 I do admire your principals, in that we are the very same.

    Reading not only your post but the relating comments, you have made me smile. You’ve proven a truth that so many try not to acknowledge; that we can disagree on fundamentals and yet still show eachother the utmost respect.
    Thanks for that

    Isn’t it a shame that we feel the need to post like this? I am praying I won’t need it, but have been giving thought to having something similar on hand in case Trump is elected over here. Sometimes I think my fellow countrymen have gone insane.
