Idling Mind

I was just thinking today....although it's not happened to me recently but I'm pretty sure you might have been at the receiving end of something similar....

Why is it that when I mention that I don't have a particular religion, there are those who will respond with an apologetic "Oh..". Followed by a pause, pregnant or not, it's clearly rehearsed to somewhat condescend, "So you are a free-thinker?"

Makes me want to ask if because of his/her religion, it makes him/her a "non-thinker" since s/he has so much faith and belief?

There is no logic in certain systems. No religion = immoral.
I am not immoral because I am not religious. Having a religion doesn't make you moral automatically.

Anyway....how come only SAF seems to be going the way of "Unmanned" systems? The Home Team should find them relevant as well right? Although I think "unmanned" system can't replace negotiators. Sending an unmanned system into a hostage situation to negotiate just don't seem like a viable option.

That’s exactly the response I get here in Africa too!

Haha, my dear friend, looks like such responses are transnational in nature... not part of globalisation I hope!
