This year is the first time there are more non-believers than believers in The Netherlands. Every ten years there is a research on this topic. Since 1966 the number of believers in God reduced from 78% to 42%. The number of agnostics raised from 16% to 34% and the number of atheists from 6 to 24%. In politics religion plays no significant role, already for a long time. And nobody has ever said: ‘May God bless the (beautiful country of) The Netherlands’ - if someone does, everybody will laugh.

Maybe we’ll get there, but we have many multiples of your population and are more diverse.

Who’s the dog? (which person hides himself behind a dog-picture?). Please choose for a more open communication, so it’s worth while to respond.

I’ve posted almost 20,000 posts here and therefore have no need to ask for your approval.  Suggest you scan some of them. You have two, so suggest you need to qualify yourself.

I like the dog. He uses good grammar, for one thing, and he understands every word I say. And he has excellent typing skills!

And what do you think of someone who hides behind a bird picture?  Open communication is not rude communication.

Indeed. Birds are very communicative. A little bird told me.

Hey, one finger at a time. Slowly.  Dog has much more merit than I do.

Over many years domestication turned the mighty wolf to a deplorable hairy ball with sad eyes, only fit for using as an avatar for people who doesn’t succeed to make an appropriate selfie. By the way, qualify by quantity, huh?

On the former I agree, on the latter lighten up and don’t be such a dick.

Over many years, domestication turned the mighty Homo sapiens into a deplorable hairy billionaire who posts thousands of selfies to go along with his lies and false promises.  http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/02/opinion/seduced-and-betrayed-by-donald-trump.html?_r=0

For years we had a member here, Brother Mario, who thought he looked like Jesus and posted his own visage among all those medieval portraits of Christ to prove his point.  However http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/health/a234/1282186/

Hey Fons,

I’ll overlook your little animal-related gaffe and ask you this:

What are your thoughts about the latest Geert Wilders case?

And nobody ever said, It’s going to be the Netherlands first!  The Netherlands first!  From this day forward it’s going to be the Netherlands first!”  If someone does, everybody will laugh.
