Musings of an octogenarian on the Human predicament

In the years to come, our descendants will want to know what it was like to be alive now, during the Great Pandemic of 2020. But memory is an imperfect instrument. It fades, it fragments, it’s easily rewritten. For the sake of those stories we’ll tell one day, I wanted to write down the feel of this moment while my impressions are fresh.I acknowledge I may not be the best chronicler. The disease hasn’t touched me, not deeply. I’m reading stories of hospitals overwhelmed, brave doctors and…See More

Over the years I have had to unlearn a lot of things I had learnt and relearn ways of making my life meaningful in this godless universe.

1. I MISS BELIEVING THAT SOMEONE IS ALWAYS THERE

HOW LUCKY WE ARE

Posted on March 29, 2019 at 1:16pm 0 Comments

I remember the moment of my epiphany, the moment I became an atheist. I was 20 years old. I had read the oscillating universe by George Gamow & the origin of species by Charles Darwin.



Then, suddenly, I realized we homo-sapiens are just a kind of animal like other animals on this spinning rock we call Earth. Whatever purpose we feel we have is one we devise for ourselves; it’s not handed to us from on high. We are on our own; there is no deity holding a net under our feet as…
