Hello
« on: May 05, 2010, 04:59:06 PM »
Hello everyone. New to the forum. I am hailing from the southwest of Greece; one of nations still having a formal religion rooted even in their constitution. I have never been a believer, but been raised in a religious nation, declaring yourself as an atheist was a no-no. At least we moved a step forward some years ago by removing the Religion line from our ID cards (yes, our IDs used to state a religion among other things..)
Wish you all a nice day  :)

Welcome to the forum, Achaios. I'm just curious what you think about Greece's financial crisis. Looks almost like there is a civil war breaking out in Greece.

Morning and thank you all for your welcome wishes. With regards to the current financial crisis I hope we don't have to end up on killing each other. In any case this will not help out things. I have some thoughts on that but I understand these are not fit for the Introductions section of the forum.

Hello Achaios.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

hi
Quote from: "Ivan Tudor C McHock"
If your faith in god is due to your need to explain the origin of the universe, and you do not apply this same logic to the origin of god, then you are an idiot.

Any local insights on the Greek aversion to paying tax and the financial situation? Oh and 'Riot Dog'
