Mr Harold Camping’s second date for the rapture came and went without christ coming down from the heavens or a massive earthquake to mark the beginning of the five months of hell on earth. Here’s waht he had to say about this: “We were convinced that on May 21, God would return in a very … Continue reading


Hell? Really?

Feet of clay

> I keep reading the same things again and again, in different forms, in different books.. They all talk about the horror that religion has brought upon us, about the villainy associated with it, about the atrocities committed in its name. And with a morbid fascination I keep on reading, abhorring religion at every page … Continue reading

My religious views

> I am against organized religion. Have been for ages, even before I knew what it was exactly I was against. The whole idea of certain specific rites to be performed and certain ideas to be held sacrosanct over and above us mere mortals even if it was proved time and time again that those … Continue reading

Science? Oh God!

> Haven’t been reading much except for the one book I wish I hadn’t started. I had no idea how facile his arguments could be or I’d never have bought the book. “The Science of God” is based on denying any scientific fact the author can safely refuse to accept and where he cannot do … Continue reading

Roots of morality? Pt.2

Is there a God? If yes, then what is his contribution to this world? How does he play a part … Continue reading

Why is anatomy imperfect?

Been reading a lot on the evolutionist-creationist debate recently. Of course from the evolutionists’ point of view, coz that’s where my belief lies. One chapter I recently read was on how there were so many imperfections in the human body and how that was clear proof that man was not ‘designed’ by a higher intelligence … Continue reading

Questioning dogma

The Bible has always fascinated me. I enjoyed reading it, esp. the Old Testament (never got round to the New), which I went through as a kind of novel. I had no doubt in my mind that most, if not all of it was based on some kernel of truth, sort of like the Mahabharat … Continue reading
