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.

Just back from amazing week in Dubai. Ultra-modern country, very impressive, advanced building projects etc. Admirable plans for future science. Yet evolution conspicuously & anomalously absent from education curriculum. How can you teach biology without its bedrock rationale?

Vijai Singh
Even worst, how can you teach both biology & theology without their bedrock rationale of natural laws?
"We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws." Albert Einstein

You haven't learned a thing, have you? Incessant repetition.
Why would anyone teach "theology"?
Why repeat a quote that everyone who understands the work of science has long understood?! We work to understand mysteries. That's what science does!
What is a "previous birth"? Clown face

Vijai Singh
This is why the "stupidest of men never change". In spite of "incessant repetition", you still have a dim or no understanding of natural laws.
And yet science can't explain this, "Science without religion is lame..." Einstein
See who becomes what

More quoting. More misunderstanding of the words & people you quote.
How old are you?
Have you learned nothing in all your years?

Vijai Singh
What more do I need to learn?
"Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change." Confucius

Well, you could learn that incessantly quoting makes you look like a buffoon.
What is a "previous birth"?
I will be nominating you for a Nobel Prize for this astounding information!
Just need a few more details. Smiling face with halo

"For long years, priests prevented us understanding the Quran realites and greatness of its bringer, but by improvement of sciences this book will take human attention to it and become axis of thoughts." Dr. J. Wolfgang Von Goethe

Vijai Singh
There is science for you, a book invented by an illiterate.
Perhaps Wolfgang didn't reach where it says the earth is flat - "One day we shall remove mountains, and thou wilt see the earth as a level stretch..." Sura 18:47

Here is some regret for you in quoting Einstein.
"We owe a lot to Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made." Einstein

Regarding Hinduism or the Hindu scriptures
Allah say in the glorious Quran that to every nation and tribe We send revelations time to time before finalising to Quran.
The Hindu scriptures are in Sanskrit which today is a dead language.
The pundits fabricated it

Vijai Singh
The most ignorant people in the world today are Muslims.
The first revelation (Vedas) is final because God (Brahma) is All-perfect & All-wise. If there is a God who needs to repeat himself over and over, he is certainly not God.

You sound bigoted, Vijai!
I don't think Muslims are more ignorant than others. Like all other believers in ancient stories, they believe what their culture has indoctrinated them to believe.

Yes, it's nonsense, but so are your beliefs about "previous births".

Vijai Singh
I know - "No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth." Plato
It's religion that calls for the destruction of all humanity, except for a certain sect (Sunni) Muslims.
And so are your beliefs civilization originated from a primitive state.

Another unnecessary quote from the Quote Nut.
Please explain the problem you have understanding that modern civilization arose from a primitive state.
If you doubt something so obvious, you must be very confused.

Vijai Singh
It is a fact, the truth offends! Just want to let you know it is the ignorant who confuse it with bigotry.
It is breach of natural laws. Progression is always downward.
It's like picking up a junk of a car from a scrapyard and with the passage of time expect it to become new.
And as for your dumb repetition of common knowledge, "It is a fact, the truth offends!"
OF COURSE some are offended! In fact, those who cling to their beliefs do this.
However, to use this as a blanket condemnation is dishonest; MANY genuinely prefer what is most likely true!

Vijai Singh
Luckily for me, even though I didn't know it then, I abandon education after grade 12 for the right reasons.
The trouble with you, is that you're too educated.
