    Let me get this right from your point of view... God created people with aberrant genetics that make them not believe in him? Oh the implications, he truly works in mysterious ways.

    How bizarre!

    Seriously that’s cool because the percentages are pretty low for having left hand dominant children even for two lefty parents. Having two is even lower. I thank you for continuing to promote lefty mutations within the human race.

    To be honest I think you should just work on the basis that there's certain posters on this forum who believe in the literal truth of what they've read in the fluff and gamebooks of 40K and they've bee searching for sources which will confirm this ever since.

    I really have always assumed that beliefs are a product of our environment to some extent. I cat really fathom them being genetic. Granted, this doesn't mean that they are not genetic. I just can't comprehend it.

    I do have a friend who is both left-handed and an atheist. But I also have friends on the autism spectrum who are religious. There are also plenty of right-handed atheists.
    Genetics is a confusing field.

    Given the number of atheists in certain parts of world, this can't possibly be more than a minor affect. I read that in the UK, the number of atheists passed 50% for the first time. Certainly, amongst the young, the figures are very high. I don't think the percentage of left handed or autistic individuals has reached the same levels.

    Yeah, I heard the same, its something the government is scrutinising because they had always hoped that private charities and churches could completely replace the welfare state in time, its what all of Cameron's ramblings about a "big society" where about, and the thing about a census indicating a greater number of atheists or humanists or any other sort of secularists is that it could well be an indication that there will be less money circulating informally, less people relating to one another routinely with a structured calender of events and a upsurge in loneliness that sports or some other sort of clubs or societies wont be sufficient to provide.

    So left handedness is a genetic oddity? How sinister... On the other hand... to deny the philosophical possibility seems a bit strong armed, so do the ambidextrous run the air conditioning with the windows open? I'm not certain the two things are related... But what is life without a little mystery...
    Sassy is the cat in the moment of destiny...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    He is the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    He is the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language;
    but he is more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remembers that which she hath forgotten...
