Cristhiam2015-01-21 10:10:55 NewsHiI dont think what Kiren Bedi has done is correct when she fight aiagsnt the so called BIG and Politicians corruption. The other members like Kjeriwal also will not find it wrong as he himself did some fund mismanagement from the donations for the Anna move. Even Anna is in question according to various reports.People who start some movement like this must have absolute credibility and they must not have any other political and EGO problems. I find both these problems with most of these people (though no human is absolutely perfect). Especially Kiren Bedis and Kjeriwals utterance of foul language was another example for their credibility of public work in question!!!!. The whole episode of Anna move was good as far as to sensitise people aiagsnt corruption but the motive behind of most of the group members are in question? Anna may be different, a good old man who has some ideals !This is my feeling which you may not agree or you may be expecting a positive word for Kiren Bedi, I wonder!!!!!!!Philip MathewRetired Teacher

Atheists are good people.
The name was given by the crooked religious leaders so that their
followers will always fight for them.
Actually atheist are honest people with no agenda other than to be a pain
in the ass of all these Gurus who constantly lying to people and misguiding
them about God. People should stand in front of a mirror and
worship themselves because the God is within their body. Some of the thinkers have suggested that the
body is the temple of the God and love is God’s expression. The theist has to always fight for their God
and keep their identity. In order to
fight for something one has to create negative energy. So on one hand they claim that they Children
of God and the other hand they hate fellow beings call them atheist and declare
them as outcasts. In fact, as I said
earlier, the atheist are true truth seekers (Truth is God) and enjoy much
freedom within them than the theist always harboring and plotting against
I agree with many of your arguments but too
much sentiment is not good. Do you want ISIL
to take over the world? Do you want radical Muslims, Hindus, and Christians to
take your freedom away? Do you want to
stay in a haven where all these obsessive extremists are gathering? The politics of holiness is dividing the
universe in to pure and impure, righteous and outcast, rich and poor, neighbor and
enemy. We have created a God which
demands all kind of garbage (salacious glutton) now from us and are the slaves
of that God. What an irony? Charity by
religion is an excuse to control the people.
First they are giving then they are looting. Just like the African proverb, “When the
missionaries came in, they had Bible and
after preaching of the Gospel they had our land and we had their Bible. If
there is a God, that God is in our heart and cannot be controlled by any
religion. Atheist is truly the truth
seeker and you can’t brush them aside.
Anyone who wants to become a Christian or
leave Christianity, they can do so.
Jesus never gives any damn about it because he has nothing to do with
Christianity. Though it was started by
some genuine people later it was abducted by hoodlums for business.
Acts 11:26 "And when he had found him, he
brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled
themselves with the CHURCH, and taught much people. And the disciples were
called CHRISTIANS first in Antioch".

discussion group2015-01-20 06:41:33 NewsIt is only when irrational dogmas are involved that
sensibilities are hurt.
Everyone thought that the earth is flat and religious
sensitivities were hurt when someone said that the earth is round. But in the
face of irrefutable proof that the earth is round, everyone including religions
On the other hand religious sensitivities are hurt when we
atheists say there is no god. Here there is no evidence either way. But we
atheists also have sensitivities and our sensitivities can also be hurt when
they say there is a god as much as their sensitivities are hurt when we say
there is no god. So here some give and take is inevitable.
Recently one of my closest relatives who knows that I am a
die-hard atheist asked me to pray for him. I wrote back a Malayalam song which
says that gods are made of stone and clay and cannot see you laugh or cry. His
sentiments were hurt and he wrote back that I should respect sentiments. I
wrote back saying that we also have sentiments and some of them were hurt when
he asked me to pray.
Every religion has dogmas which hurt sentiments of all other
religions. Because they are these differences in dogmas that differentiate one
religion from another and one sect of the same religion from all sects. Thus
most Christians say that there are 3 constituents - father , son and holy ghost
- in god. But this is utterly blasphemous to Muslims as well as to some
Christian sects themselves and can hurt their sentiments. Catholics say that
Pope is the representative of god on earth. All other 40000 odd sects of
Christianity deny this and hurt Catholic sentiments. How did they sort it out?
By religious violence that lasted for decades in Europe.
Ultimately people lost their interest in religions and their wars and they
turned to science in Europe. They would have
been hurting each other's sentiments had not science and humanism gained the
upper hand in Europe.
In the same vein Capitalist dogmas hurt communist dogmas and
the issue has not yet been settled as yet.
In Gulliver's travels there is the story of the
generations-year-old war between Lilliputians and their neighbors over which
end of the egg is to be broken for making an omelette. Those who said that the
big end of the egg is to be broken hurt the sentiments of those who said that
the small end of the egg should alone be broken. The issue becomes even more
complex if there are more factors than just small end and big end involved in a
dispute. In fact any new idea has the potential of hurting sentiments.
Thus the theory of evolution hurt religious sentiments
across the board as most religions have dogmas of creation. So if we are to
refrain from hurting sentiments no progress will be made. Obviously we cannot
develop ideas unless we hurt a few sentiments.
In the wake of Charlie Habdo cartoons and the massacre of
its editors an intense debate is going on around the world about offending
religious sensitivities. Offending sensitivities of anyone is not a good idea
or act. But more thought should be given to it. Should the religious
sensitivities be protected of a few select groups only or should it be extended
to all religious, group, national identity, ethnic, racial, class, social
standing etc. sensitivities? What would constitutes an offense? For example
would proclamation such as "Idolatry is worse than carnage" be
considered offending the sensitivities of those who believe in idol worship. I
have given just one example -- more can be added to these from all fields
of life and all sides.
It does no good to anyone to have religious conflict. It
results in much wastage of human resources and physical and mental anguish.
Civilized as this world is it will be worthwhile to sit down around a table and
come to conclusion what constitute offense and we can remove all offending
acts, thoughts, pictures, words and whatever offends one from our lives. Every
one will then know his limits and what is supposed to do or not do. We all then
can live peacefully and in full harmony for all time to come and devote all our
efforts in the prosperity of human race.
