It really hurts when the converted Christians support the inquisition (like it was some kind of salvation for them). Pope dint waste much time to criticize the violence in Orrisa....no, I don't support the violence. I'd call for castrating the animals in public who burnt the orphanage. Don't the people of Goa deserve an apology from the Pope? (not that I care) It took the Vatican 400 years to give an apology for the treatment meted out to Galileo Galilee. So i don't expect any apology anytime time soon(unless a miracle happens).

Ok, enough of Christian bashing.
Let me do surgery on modern Hinduism. Its was beautiful religion but a failed religion nonetheless. Still plagued by Caste system and senseless rituals. A woman from a lower caste was killed a few months back in Uttar Pradesh because her shadow fell on a person of higher caste. I myself have been ill treated sometimes. Wondering how did that happen? Saraswats had started to eat fish which other Brahmins (people from the highest caste) believe is against the brahminical code. Sometimes survival demands certains adaptations and compromises to be made. I personally wouldn't hesitate to kill a human and eat him/her if that is what it takes to survive.

Moral of the Story?
God if any is a jerk. The almighty God who likes to be praised all time. The religions inhibit free thinking. Lets see wat God has to say about this.
Atheism is Salvation. No gods, no religious obligations and no crap. Atheists are not god haters....you can hate something that does exist. How can you hate a non-existent God,huh? :-D We are not devil worshippers either...coz we dont believe in the devil.
There is no hell or heaven. We have got one chance to do something good on this earth. Lets all spend our days in peace.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
Do not believe anything because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything because it is written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and the benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."
So, here we come.....to the end.(I wish I could indulge in more religion bashing...I've to leave. Its time for the bus)
What did I get out of this blog? Nothing, only crap [Oh! I forgot the chappals that a female threw @ me]. But I must admit that I've had a sense of satisfaction telling about stuff that I'd never do in real life.
Do feel free to comment on any of the previous posts. Here we come, to the end of Season 1. I honestly have not thought about a Season 2....Mother Google will be unhappy about this.

Translation: You are not bound to loss and silence. For you are not bound to the circles of this world. All things must pass away, All life is doomed to fade… Sorrowing you must go.
