First, two news items:


1. "Three-year-old girl joins Mensa with an IQ ‘higher than
Stephen Hawking’ to become just one of 18 pre-school members
  • Alice Amos, from Guildford, Surrey, scored 162 in the Stanford Binet test
  • The toddler is already bilingual, speaking both English and Russian
  • Her IQ matches some of the world's most notable intellectuals both past and present"

So much of human potential is lost because of this.
2. "Sharia Law Swallowing Indonesia

Indonesia, once a country of diversity, is now becoming 
a place for one-way Islam.
Although Indonesia, "the world largest Muslim country"
with an 87% Muslim population, was once considered a 
moderate Muslim country, day by day it has been leaning
more and more towards conservative Islam and Sharia 
laws. Initiated in 2009, bylaws in the light 
of Sharia rulings were implemented that conflict
with the values of human rights, and are
creating a difficult land for minorities to live in.
Indonesian Aceh province authorities recently launched an
initiative, despite opposition from human rights activists,
to ban women from straddling motorcycle when riding behind 
a man. Suaidi Yahia, mayor of Lhokseumawe, the second large
city of the province, said to the Associated Press, "It is
improper for women to sit astride. We implement Islamic
law here." He later said, "women sitting on motorbikes must
not sit astride: it will provoke the male drivers." Instead,
they allow women to sit sidesaddle, which is dangerous
on a motorcycle."

Then a few maps:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am wondering if there is a movement in the world promoting breaking these “dress-codes” with participants pledging never to dress in accordance with them? As a part of fight for freedom of expression.

Note that the countries where there are restrictions on women’s appearance and movement are in the red & orange on the rape map – this is all part of the same package. Enslavement and de-humanization. Often supported by religious leaders and their followers, based on phrases from various “holy” books.

 

 

Now there are two really important maps.

For the most of the world the more there are educated people – the less important is the religion. Enough said.
