Story of Faith & Story of Science

************Two Stories************
Story 1 - Story of Faith:
An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty. He asks one of his new students to stand and .....
Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof: Is God good?Student: Sure.Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Student: Yes.
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then? Hmm?
Student is silent.
Prof: You can't answer, can you?Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Is Satan good?
Student: No.
Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From...God...
Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Prof: So who created evil?
Student does not answer.
Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Prof: So, who created them?
Student has no answer.
Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son...Have you ever seen God?
Student:No, sir.
Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.
Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.
Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Prof: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Prof: Yes.
Student: No sir. There isn't.(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it. (There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student:You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light....But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?
Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof:Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir? (The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher? (The class is in uproar.)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain? (The class breaks out into laughter.)Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol,science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir? (The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)
Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it sir... The link between man & god is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive. . . . . . .
THAT STUDENT WAS . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, President of India.
Story 2 - Story of Science

The whole conversation looks like one of the Dreams of APJ Kalam. Because he use to dream the whole day and night and breach others the remaining Day to dream in the 'middle of meddled country'.

If I were dreaming How the conversation would continue....000000(The dream continues...)

Prof: Dear student, is there such a thing as 'GOD'?
Stu: Yes, it is 'Faith' through which we can feel 'GOD'. So it is there.

Pro: No my dear young chap, you are wrong. We have science, Astro science, and whole lot of science for each and every field. But we don't have anything called 'GOD'. There is no such thing as 'GOD'.
'GOD' is only a word we use to describe the inability of science(that is the inability of science to describe something). We cannot measure 'GOD'. My dear student, 'GOD' is not the opposite of Science. Just the absence of it. 'GOD' is just the absence of Science. So My dear student, your point is correct but the conclusion is wrong.

(The Foolish Student shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize how unrealistic his thoughts were and how naive he was.)(The class is in uproar.)

The message is very clear. The history of God says it is the fear of human on his inability to perceive the Nature - that is where 'GOD' exists. As our ability of perception grows, that is sceince grows, the space for GOD shrinks.

Thus now the sustenance of 'GOD' lies in Three areas...
One - Those who benifit from institutionalized GOD - that is religion- try to give various definition keep in pace with ever evolving science.
Two - Unsolved questions of science(the inability of Science).
Three - The unpredictable condition of global economy (due to its capitalist nature). Even the big capital venture has to first beleive in GOD then only he belives his own predictions about profit.

I thank Dream Kalam (Parliament Buffoon) on spreading this information. By that giving me a chance to expose the same.

Please forward this to everybody. Fail to do so will cause the following.
1) Your brain will vanish.
2) Your Numskull become a permanent resident for unwanted viruses.
3) You will hear this in your dreams "May God Bless you, Amen!".

Very Very Bussy to find Answer!!

In our Daily life we are confronting with lots of questions. Some we can able to find answer some never... Some we never bother about finding answer.

And now a days there are N number of people, who are criticle about the present economic and political system, making commotion all around
- from The hindu, Frontier to Puthiya Kalacharam - from Arundhadi Roy, Naom Chomsky to Medha badkar - from P.Sainath to Marudhayan, RUPE - from Rang de Basanthi, Final Solution to Anbesivam, Nagariga Komali - from a bunch of NGOs, Pseudo communists, Ultra extreme Leftiest to dalit parties, Revolutionary parties.

Yet we don't aware of whether our welfare is pinned with what they are protesting......
And now a days we see most of our friends accept that something wrong is going around. But still unaware of the Gravity of the situation.

Because we are very very very very very very Bussy........Hmmmm still we find time for boozing, flirting, shopping, and other Fs....(okay leave it, no personal....).

Now a days all around the world revolutionary movements are taking momentum and become very very influential defying the existing pseudo Democratic capitalist, or quasi feudalist parliament setups - From Philiphines, Indonasia, malaysia, to Latin america, India, Nepal etc even in Western countries especialy former soviet blocks of eastern europe and germany, france, sweden etc.

Some of the questions now we very often confront with are....

  • Globalisation, Liberalisation, Privatisation - Good or bad?
  • present System of Parliamentarian politics, and Police, Military, and judicial bodies - Good or bad?
  • What is communism - good or bad?
  • How will our child live - No idea hehehe!.
  • How will you live - No idea Hehehe!

    Here find link for one article (Tamil). I feel this would address some of very basic confusion we have about our life, present soceity, Etc.

I am Exposed...Heeehhehe- Don't see(X-Rated)

Some of the Excerpts from Arundhati Roy' Aug 22, 2005 Interveiw. This exposes our democracy very well.
My commets
* You can compare the situation mentioned in Orissa with Thamirabarani. Yet the situation in thamirabarani didn't went to that extent. But it will go when people struggling relentlessly.

* Please keep in mind the things mentioned about Rural unrest and Internal Diaspora of rural people to cities. There is going to be an article about these things soon. This is one of very very very important scenario that needs elaborate investigation. So keep this in mind.

* People very often use to ask me unbelievably everytime after I explain them the nexus of our political system and Imperialism. The question is "why our politicians are doing things that is not good for the country?"

For them the informations about P.chidambaram and other politicians given in this piece of article is the answer.

Those who want the full version.

Excerpts from Interveiw:
Right now, for example, there’s a lot in the news about the scandalous Enron contract being "re-negotiated" for the third time—the contract that resulted in MSEB having to pay Enron millions of dollars not to produce electricity. The renegotiation is all very secret (like the initial Enron negotiation). The nodal ministry involved in the re-re-negotiation is the finance ministry headed by P. Chidambaram who, until the day he became finance minister, was Enron’s lawyer. The other members on the committee are Montek Ahluwalia and Sharad Pawar—the two who were instrumental in signing the disastrous contract in the first place. It’s like asking an accused in a criminal case to investigate the crimes he’s been accused of.

What did you make of the PM’s Oxford address?
Timing is everything, it was an unambiguous political statement. Right now, Western powers and several right-wing academics, like the historian Niall Ferguson, have embarked on a project of valorising Imperialism. This is the argument they use to justify the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan and all the ones still to come. At this point in history, for the Indian PM to publicly and officially declare himself an apologist for the British Empire is pretty devastating. After a few cautious caveats in his speech, Manmohan Singh thanked British Imperialism for everything India is today. Ironically, at the top of his list was all the machinery of repression put in place by a colonial regime—the bureaucracy, the judiciary, the police, Rule of Law. He then went on to express gratitude for the gift of the English language—the language that separates India’s elite from its fellow countrymen and binds its imagination to the western world. Macaulay couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated disciple. The only people who might have a valid reason to view the British Empire with less anger than the rest of us are Dalits. Since to the white man all of us were just natives, Dalits were not especially singled out for the bestial treatment meted out to them by caste Hindus. But somehow, I can’t imagine Manmohan Singh bringing a Dalit perspective to colonialism while receiving an honorary PhD in Oxford.

What does it mean to be independent today? Has Independence Day become a mere annual ritual?
As corporatisation and privatisation proceed APACE and more and more people are rendered jobless, homeless, and have no access to natural resources, anger and unrest will build. The central function of the State will increasingly be to oversee the repression of an unemployed, dispossessed population on behalf of the corporates. The State will have to evolve into an elaborate tyranny which retains all the rhetoric of democracy. Look at what’s happening in Orissa—the new crucible of corporate globalisation. Multinational mining companies—Sterlite, Vedanta, Alcan—are devastating Orissa’s hills and forests for bauxite. They say Kashmir is like Palestine. True. But Orissa is getting there too. Orissa is a police state now. For some years now, there has been a resilient, feisty, anti-mining movement in Kashipur. You ask what independence means to most Indians—visit Kuchaipadar, the extraordinary little Adivasi village at the heart of the Kashipur struggle, and you will have your answer. Kuchaipadar is surrounded by police. People cannot move from one village to the next. Cannot hold meetings, rallies or protests. Over the last two years, they have been shot, beaten, lathicharged, jailed and several have been killed. Last year, on Independence Day, Kuchaipadar’s villagers hoisted a black flag. That’s what independence means to them.
Oh, and who’s on the board of directors of Vedanta, one of the biggest mining companies prospecting in Orissa? P. Chidambaram, who resigned on the day he was appointed FM; David Gore-Booth, former UK high commissioner in India; Naresh Chandra, former cabinet secretary and ex-Indian ambassador to the US, and former chairman of the Foreign Investment Promotion Bureau. It’s a bedroom farce with blood on the tracks.

State repression, religious fundamentalism and corporate globalisation seem interconnected. But hasn’t resistance to this nexus become symbolic, tokenist, NGO-ised and even a career for some professionals, including some would say for you?

It’s true. Sometimes NGOs wreck real political resistance more effectively than outright repression does. And yes, it could be argued that I’m yet another commodity on the shelves of the Empire’s supermarket, along with Chinese cabbages and freeze-dried prawns. Buy Roy, get two human rights free! But between the NGOs and Al Qaeda—frankly, I’m with the many millions who are looking for the Third Way.

Milesstones of this week - Focus, The great Achievemets

This week is quiet good for India. We have done some notable achievements.

  • The Sensex crossed the 11,000 mark.
    (And we got advices from USA ambassador, World Bank Director etc about the steps to improve india as great power that the same steps would demolish USA economy. Those people are very very honest and loyal to India. Hmmm... Communists and others opposing are fools).
  • Lakme Fashion Week issued over 500 media passes to journalists.(one of the very very important event happened in India.)
  • India Won cricket Match. (another important nerve recking event)


Those who likes to hear only sweet news about India can close their window now


  • FARM SUICIDES in Vidharbha crossed 400 mark.(Bullshit.. who cares)
    (June 2005 - till date, This month(march) alone 77, last 13 Days 40 suicides, And total sucides run in Thousands)
  • HAL become PUS(Public Utility Service).
    (That is - labours laws found way to trash bin. There never happened any major labour dibutes in HAL before. Then why this PUS - designation suddenly. As already we aware of that HAL is in reform pipe line. there will be future labour disbutes when it(reforms) is implimented. Remember the Tussle in Toyota kirloskar bangalore now)
  • Nearly 5,000 shanties were torn down in Mumbai in the same eventful week. But it drew little attention.
  • Onix Employee strike in Chennai.
    (You cann't get this info any where. Our journalist are very bussy gossiping about cinema and politics. One of the demand is 'Treat us like a human being'. Long live the Sanctity of Privatization)
  • Rabis Vacines are not available in Govt hospital.
    (Regarding this we have published one article on 2003 itself and many mails have been sent. First Menaga banned indian vacines(animal welfare) to give way for smoth ride by MNCs, then International Patents rights implimented. This is the road for MNC. and our people are road side beggers now, deprived of essential medicines. Remember this year budget increased Tax for medicines for AIDS,etc)
