That's what I have read. Lowest in China, Korea and Japan... not the most obvious enclaves of western (or should that be middle-eastern?) religion.Jeffrey Armbruster wrote: ↑Mon Jul 31, 2017 12:10 am"My own belief is that, if western religion had not frowned on left-handedness as being a sign of the devil (sinister) handiness would be approximately 50%-50%"
So you're saying that ~45% of the population are devils pretending to be right handed? Seems low to me...
In any case, my guess is that in pre-or non-Christian populations left handedness was (is) a much lower fraction compared to right handedness.
No they don't Jeffery! They bounce off the bottom side...down under.Jeffrey Armbruster wrote: ↑Tue Aug 01, 2017 12:00 amMy mother is left handed; father, right. I do most things right handed, but a few left, often without even realizing it. For example I shoot pool lefty, but never noticed it until someone pointed it out.
It seems almost impossible that anyone could see left handedness as morally disreputable. Apparently, some do! In the case of the girl that you coached, I wonder if her previous instructor had a kind of highly regimented outlook--'this is the way everyone does it, and you will too!'--that goes beyond left/right handedness. My dad lives in a gated community with a golf course in Indio, Ca. Everyone dresses identically. When I visit, he insists that I wear the uniform too. "Everyone does it this way, and you will too!"
I wonder if trampoliners in Australia universally twist left?
