Fight Superstitions

How do you want to fight superstitions? Do you want to abuse superstitious people? You want to beat them up? Shout at them? Sue them?
Do you want to use philosophy, history, literature to fight superstitions?

Most likely nothing would work.

Promote scientific outlook and rational thinking. Popularize science.

It might work.

30 million took holy dip. 30 died.

30 people were killed in a stampede at Kumbh, the Hindu religious festival.

30 million Hindus took dip at the confluence of Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical as well as invisible Saraswati believing to have their sins washed away. More than 30 people died in a stampede at Kumbh. God should have saved the lives of devotees. Some children died too. Why did God kill them?

Many people die in stampedes at Kumbh and Hajj.

I am so lucky! I do not need to go to kaba or Kumbh, because I do not commit sins.

The more sins you commit, the more your fears grow.

Hindus believe some rivers in India are holy, even though those rivers are dangerously polluted. Many famous artists, writers, film makers, filthy rich were at Kumbh today. They believe their sins will be washed away if they immerse themselves in those so called holy rivers. Kumbh is like Kaba, Muslims believe if their perform hajj by orbiting kaba, all their sins will be forgiven.

If most people in the world were sane, religion would have been dead long ago.

Don’t die dear doomsday dudes!

NASA is now educating the shitheads who believe the world will end on December 21, 2012. It looks like a canon is hired to kill a little mosquito. NASA should remain busy with our vast universe. Sane people have been working hard to make the shitheads understand that the world will not end in 2012 and they should better believe in science, rather than superstitions. If the shitheads haven’t got it yet, I am afraid they will not get it even if NASA begs them to get it.
Will the doomsday believers commit mass suicide around December 21? It will be painful to witness such a tragedy. Stupidity does not always kill but sometimes it really kills.
