If I could pick & choose my Religion

I have been studying Comparative Religion for some time now. There are 4200+ 'LIVE' religions on planet earth today according to the anthropologists.They can't all be true, so how do I determine which one to believe in?I've been told my "eternal soul" might be at stake and I don't want to bet on the wrong horse, after all. Should I pick whichever one is the oldest? I don't know which one that might be because many were passed down orally for many centuries before they were written down. The…See More

What is this mystical thing called Spirituality?

Some people call themselves “Spiritual but not Religious”. One such person is my dear nephew 'Vishwa' of Delhi, who is also a cousin to Prema. I have a lot of admiration for him for some of his traits like empathy, compassion, self-effacing attitude and the desire to reduce human anxiety, depression & suffering with his counseling. Though he is a Spiritual person & I am a Secular Humanist, we get along dandy because we are both wedded to humanistic ethics. For me basically, it is not…

Am I spiritually challenged or spiritually savvy ?

If God didn't have the ability to create a better world which lacked natural disasters, he could have nevertheless foretold any number of them. He could have predicted when Mt. St. Helens would erupt, or when the Indonesian tsunami or hurricane Katrina or the earthquake in Hiati would hit. Such information would have saved lives and confirmed his existence and status as God.

To merely establish his status, he could have predicted the rise of the Internet, or the inventions of the…

Posted on June 23, 2016 at 2:04am 6 Comments

To create the entire multiverse comprising several universes and our visible universe with 200 billion galaxies, each galaxy with 200 to 400 billion stars, each star with its planets and to create life on some planets, is a stupendous task for any creator. Such a creator cannot be a simple entity. It has to be a very complex entity.

Yet.

Science tells us that everything started with a big bang and just…
