Debunking false dogmas.

The terror of constant brainwashing indeed spells hopelessness for billions.
A static intellect is when predetermination takes the place of honest inquiry and truth is suppressed. The culprit is misguided religion which leads to fanaticism, barbarism and superstition. This form of credulity is the catalyst of existing adverse and prejudicial conditions that have plagued mankind for nearly 5,000 years.

"When the time of destruction is at hand the intellect becomes perverted." Vridha Chan. 16:17.

Can a fool, fool God? - Feb 08, 2002
What Baseball-club owner would pay his worst ball-player the same money as his best? Since he is the owner he can do anything and even through compassion make such a reward. But let's measure the disadvantages of such a measure, his club would go bankrupt because his worst players would never strive to be better while his best players would do less since it makes no sense to be the best. Baseball will become non-competitive and the millions who would be deprived of its entertainment will no longer support it, not to mention the thousands that will be affected by employment. If there were such an owner who lacks such business sense, he would be called a fool, won't he?

 A fool has no value for time or knowledge and so he remains a fool all his life. It certainly requires no effort to be a fool and in the end he/she repents for being a fool and gains salvation. On the other hand, a wise man values his time and works diligently and strenuously daily all his life, in his efforts through austerity and abstinence to attain higher wisdom also gains salvation.

Now I ask what would we call the 'All-powerful' God of the Torah, Bible, Qur'an, Puranas, Zend Avesta, Guru Grantha, and all that other false dogmas that can do anything, who gives the same reward of heaven to both a fool and a wise man? To an intelligent soul, he is not only mortal like the Ball-club owner but even more foolish. In reality, a fool who follows a false dogma is only fooling him/herself. 
                         Redemption can only be a fool's passport to a fool's paradise.

Scientific American was once a great journal.
Denial of Evolution Is a Form of White Supremacy
As museums reopen let’s introduce ourselves, and our children, to the original Black ancestors of all human beings

If man had really evolved from a lower creature, then it was, as it were, a fact a law which was unceasing in its operations. If the law was of a constant and permanent nature, ever working itself out, how was it that for thousands of years past, no lower creature had evolved?

"how was it that for thousands of years past, no lower creature had evolved?"
This is unintelligible.
Or, I could somehow be missing the point. Can you explain?
All creatures, including "lower" ones, evolved. So what could you possibly mean?

What are you talking about? Have you looked through the techniques now apes and animals are developing to survive in this ever changing world and also with humans? There were Neanderthals,homo longi and other relatives who couldn't made it where we are.

Vijai Singh
It's not about who made it and who didn't, it is about an ape evolving into a human, which is a breach of natural laws.
"We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws." Einstein

There he goes, misinterpreting Einstein again! And a comical understanding of "natural laws".
Believers in magical entities who quote Einstein are embarrassing themselves & can't be taken seriously.

Vijai Singh
One of the originators of the evolution theory, Dr. Wallace was the first to strike it down.
"The Veda admittedly the oldest book in the library of mankind contains the essential teachings of the most advanced religious thinkers and is a vast system of religious teachings..”

3³Shooting star
Vedas didn't helped humans to build planes, to create COVID vaccine or anything that helped humans practically. All religious books are same, gita and veda are no special, these are just mind comforting books for gullibles. They offers nothing based on reality.

Vijai Singh
Your quarrel is with Einstein.
"We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made."

Einstein's quarrel is with YOU, for serially quoting him in the misguided belief he provides support for your superstition.
As for Indian contributions, many cultures contribute to our knowledge. This doesn't mean everyone in India is wise & rational. Superstition reigns there.

Vijai Singh
Superstition reigns all over the world. It is the sign of the fall or the ruder stage of civilization.
But doesn't change the fact,
"We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made." Albert Einstein

What is a "sign of the fall"? You say "superstition reigns" and then give a perfect example of your own.
Then, another quote, showing your inability to stand on your own.

Vijai Singh
Take your pick, diseases, languor, doubt, carelessness, laziness, worldly-mindedness, delusion/erroneous views, non-achievement of a stage, instability.
Perhaps, "stand on your own" without testimony is your way, but certainly not mine.

The problems you list are to be expected of humans. Not a "fall", as though we were once perfect! How silly.
Stand on my own?! Why? I have other humans to stand with.
"Without testimony" What does that mean?

Vijai Singh
None of those problems existed in the first human civilization. That's what made them perfect.
Progression is always downward, a law.
Like a new car, a new house, a 747, humans had to be perfect, and then the fall.
