I was watching Noah back when it was released with my friend and was pretty much amazed by the animation at the beginning. But at one point, I was like, Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat???? This was the question:
Was going through my facebook news feed. Found this. I dont want to waste time talking about it. The picture explains itself.
I cannot verify the statement, as it was send on a direct msg, but it sure did come from a page that seems to know what they are doing. So, here it goes.
Came across this beautiful video by Being Indian. It was very good feeling I had when I was done with the video.
These kids of the ‘modern’ world show what they think of religion. They prove that it is nothing but some tradition, some teachings that their parents followed and they are made to follow. But when asked questions like what would happen if there was no religion? or does religion make a difference to them? , The answers that came was far greater than the answers we can get from the fundamentalists, the ones boasting and preaching.
All I have to say is, that my faith in the future generation is restored. We may face global warming, we may face oil extinction, and the worst of events. But I am sure, with such minds living out there, It will not be a misguided mass waiting for a prophet or a messiah to come back and relieve them of their sins, but it will be the minds that will think together to overcome the problem in the practical way.
Update: All that I mentioned above, holds only if the kids in this video and others like them have the same thoughts even when troubles of life befall on them and they remain in the same stance. Like many people out there, if they fall prey to religion when it comes to tough times, then I guess the scenario would be different.
So Nepal was hit by an earthquake that marked 7.8 in magnitude. That is terrible for the people living there. Given our own earthquake in India, and anywhere in the world, seeing people suffering around the globe during such natural calamities, Yes we feel sad for all the lives lost. But in midst of all these, upon seeing India’s rapid response to save lives and provide relief, it was a good feeling that humanity was not all lost. Yes that was a really good thing they did.
But then comes the jobless religious minded. I read a few times online in the ‘headlines’ that Christians were selling Jesus during this issue, and at first, I did not bother much to think about it, I thought, these were passionate people who loved their god, and were behind the keyboard, instead of being one among the people there helping. Well, that’s what most of us do. When armies and forces are helping out the victims, we sit and tweet, or update facebook statuses. But Then I wondered what did it mean to ‘sell Jesus’ so i opened one of the links.
I was sad what I read. Yes some of them seem concern for the lost Lives.

And some seem compassion for the Suffering.
Reading Matthew 24 and praying for Nepal. Creation groans today, but future hope is found in Christ alone. — Patrick Savelle (@patrick_savelle) April 25, 2015
But then some were downright stupid! Religiously stupid!
Prayers for Nepal. Earthquakes and death are proof that we live in a fallen world that awaits its restoration by Jesus when he returns.

Devastating Nepal earthquake could have been prayed down by acknowledging that Christ is the ruler of God’s creation Matt 18:19-20, Rev 3:14

I mean feeling sad for the lost souls is one thing, that is good! Feeling sad for the souls, and praying for the souls is something good too. But then Using this incident where almost 4000 lives are lost, with families facing the horrors of the loss and tragedy, calling it a sign for the second coming of christ, That is unbelievable!
My question is, is this only because it is Nepal? If it was any place that had some ‘godly’ event in the Bible, would they be saying the same? If no, then we see the problem here. And if Yes, then these are the ‘Blind Believers’ That i hate the most!
Yes as many people try to convey, the passive religious among the lot, who always tell, Religion gives people Hope. Well read the tweets again, Religion + Keyboard (Or any platform to talk in front of the world) only make you more stupid than you could be without religion. This is not Giving People hope. For all I know, Nepalese people who are suffering right now, dont give a rat’s ass about any of the tweets above, or a lot more like these. But we the Humans, We the Homo Sapiens, Cannot afford to entertain such ‘Devolution’ among our own Kind.
Reading the tweets, I am glad I am not Religious. I am skeptical, rational, and NOT STUPID.
While on a conversation with a friend on the web, I get a link of Google maps. I open it to find something really funny.
We have seen the android bot on many of the apps and pages all over the web, doing various things like holding a board displaying an app name, or just peeping in. But what I found on the map was something I’ve never seen the Bot do. I saw the bot do a very human act. At the same time, something yuck! Continue reading
33 Crore Gods to respect for, with no respect given the things that actually deserve it. Animals. Do we really?
This is the god we start all our festivals with. The god that many love, And the Real form of this god, we don’t respect. Technically you may point out that Ganesh is not Worshiped as the elephant god. It’s a Human body with an elephant head. But then it is personified as an elephant in a lot of versions. Kids are shown elephants and told that it is lord ganesh. And the sadness is at the temples where Elephants are kept ‘enslaved’ to ‘Bless’. Humans cursing the life of elephants to be blessed by the same creature. This is Irony!
Do these people pray to god seeking blessings for the elephants that are enslaved? Do they pray for wildlife? No! They pray for their own self, families and many other problems They face. No the elephants or any animals for that matter.
One Group in India I have seen that practices free speech. So far their videos only contained Comedy and Social Causes but this is the first on God.
And Each Word makes sense in the video.
So celebrate the festival like it should be celebrated. Not like your neighbor does.
“One could perhaps describe the situation by saying that God is a mathematician of a very high order, and He used very advanced mathematics in constructing the universe” – Paul Dirac.
Reading through this quote I always wonder if this idea of god being a mathematician is true. It kind of makes me give up the idea that if god did exist, he was the ‘supreme being who watched all of us and governed the universe’. I just wonder if God was a mathematician, does the picture actually work?
Religious people believe that holy scriptures is the word of God himself and there is no denying it, even though there are a lot of them scriptures. So what can you actually pick from this when it does not make sense? Continue reading
I wanted to share this here on my blog about this beautiful demonstration and Since wordpress does not allow video upload on this domain, I went on to youtube to find it.
I was sad to see that Continue reading

I was in 8th grade when I was taught and even Understood gravity. Hence no man claiming to have no college education can even think of such a line. If he does, then it is just stupid.
Yes string theory, Quantum Mechanics are hard to understand without college education. Hell, It is even hard to understand after many college degrees. But gravity? Not even General Relativity. Just plain and simple gravity. Really?
A while ago Ray Comfort Puts this up :
It was a sad new for the whole world yesterday when we found out that the guy that made our childhood awesome, the guy who played Alan Parrish, Genie, Peter Pan (the roles i remember of him as a child), among many of his awesome roles, the man who defines love beautifully in the movie Continue reading
Been away from this nest for long. Sorry about that.
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.
But why was he talking to himself?
Wishing all my blog readers, and fellow bloggers, and anyone who passes by this post, A Happy New Year.
Do not make stupid resolutions and be happy throughout the year.
During the first few days of being a non-believer, or should I say, the transition state, I was very much confused between “What was the difference between an Agnostic and an Atheist”. Also, the social beliefs of these terms were totally misleading. Thus it took me a while to realize I was an Atheist and not just an Agnostic. But then you realize, agnostic is just a tunnel from belief to disbelief. Thus Giving rise to terms like Agnostic Theist, Agnostic Atheist, etc. Like I did not have enough in physics to confuse myself with. Thus, here is a small picture representation of what actually they mean, and you can fit yourself in one of these categories. Continue reading
During the early days of my blog inspired by the movie Troy, I wrote this Blog Post on Immortality. That was the moment when I cleared my Ideas in immortality. I moved from the bubble that included the though ‘Living forever’ to the bubble that had ‘Making your Name and Work Survive for Forever’. This Picture says it well.
The moment you see Agnostic in the title, and going by many of my pasts posts, this may seem like a post relating to God and Quantum Mechanics. Well, to stir things up a little bit, You do not know it’s not about God, nor do you know it’s about God. And there we go. First step into quantum mechanics, Uncertainty. Continue reading
As a child I always asked why does Ramayana (TV Series) and Mahabharata (Again, TV Series) end happily like movies? What happens to Rama and Sita after they return to Ayodhya? What about the Pandavas? Why does it have to be a Happy ending always? And I was about 11 back then. These were the question I had since childhood. This was the root of the tree of thoughts I had to grow in my mind to reach the stage where I am now. But it does not end there. Every now and then, I look for people who speak of Continue reading
