In your case, no, you haven't gotten anything right that I am away of.

Maybe you can check with your other alias?

Except of course when you are forced to agree with the dozens of things that I have posted where I am of course absolutely right... looking the fool otherwise...

E.G.: sun in east, Sweden & UK monarchies... etc.

Yes, the Sun rises in the East.

Atheism doesn't have a foundation and isn't an ideology
