Science and religion

image

I have never seen any place in the world but India where science and religion are taken cared of at the same time as if they are siblings. Unfortunately I haven’t met any doctor in the Indian subcontinent who doesn’t believe in god. I have no idea how doctors who are fine scientists find it …

Sexual abuser priests must not be forgiven

Pope Francis asked forgiveness for priests who sexually abused children. But we must not forgive anyone who sexually abuse children. No priest should get any chance to get away with their heinous crimes only because they are priests. Actually they should get greater punishment because they are priests, they are not just ordinary x y …

I am sick and tired …

Breasts were cut off

A 24-year-old woman’s breasts were cut off by three men because she resisted their attempts to force her into prostitution. Good they didn’t kill her by pushing iron rods into her vagina. Good they didn’t cut her vagina into pieces. They would definitely be able to fuck her as long as she is alive.

Erotic sculptures

image

These are erotic sculptures of medieval Hindu temples. The temples at Khajuraho were built during the Chandella dynasty, which reached its apogee between 950 and 1050. Some say erotic sculptures were made to please Indra, the king of gods. Some say more bizarre things. But I get somehow convinced when I hear that the Chandella …

The only good use of gods

20140322_092005

I took two pictures this morning while walking in the streets of Delhi. We all know that Indians have more mobile phones than toilets. We also know that India needs more toilets than temples. We should also know that most public toilets in India stink, and women wait until they get a toilet even though …

Yes, That’s Humanism

A short Humanist animation written & produced by the British Humanist Association about how we learn what’s true through the use of evidence and science. I just love these videos. Hope British Humanists will continue producing more videos like these and help to eradicate ignorance.
