"Water you are the one that brings us life. You are the source of nourishment that gives us strength. We rejoice in your existence. We drink you with joy. . . and when we swallow you we receive love." --The Vedas


Hmmmm: sounds like something John the Baptist might have said.

You do realize that the Vedanta predates John the Baptist by several millennia, right???

Why I Am Not a Hindu

Ramendra Nath

Originally published by Bihar Rationalist Society (Bihar Buddhiwadi Samaj) 1993.
Electronically reprinted with permission.

I have read and admired Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian. On the other hand, I have also read and disagreed with M.K.Gandhi's Why I Am a Hindu. My acquaintance with these writings has inspired me to write this essay explaining why I am not a Hindu, though I was born in a Hindu family.

The Meaning of "Hindu"

The word "Hindu" is a much-abused word in the sense that it has been used to mean different things at different times. For example, some people even now, at least some times, use the word "Hindu" as a synonym for "Indian". In this sense of the term, I am certainly a "Hindu" because I do not deny being an Indian. However, I do not think that this a proper use of the term "Hindu". There are many Indians such as Muslims, Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians as well as rationalists, humanists and atheists who do not call themselves "Hindu" and also do not like to be described as such. It is certainly not fair to convert them into Hinduism by giving an elastic definition of the term "Hindu".

My “New Atheists series”

“ALL RELIGIONS HAVE THIS IN COMMON, THAT THEY ARE AN OUTRAGE TO COMMON SENSE FOR THEY ARE PIECED TOGETHER OUT OF A VARIETY OF ELEMENTS, SOME OF WHICH SEEM SO UNWORTHY, SORDID AND AT ODDS WITH MAN’S REASON, THAT ANY STRONG AND VIGOROUS INTELLIGENCE LAUGHS AT THEM”

Cow’s Excreta as Medicine: Insult to Humanity
Srinivas Kakkilaya

The cow is, at the least, an animal domesticated by man for help in agricultural activities.[1] Although the mighty machines now used in farming have made these animals irrelevant in agriculture, valiant attempts are being made, at least in India, to preserve the exalted position of the so called ’second mother’ [2] or even ‘mother of the world’ [3,4].

The stringent agitations to protect the ‘cow-mother’ [4,5] and even riots and murders of dalits for the sake of the cow,[6,7] suggest that the human life is far less important than a dead cow in this part of the world.[7] This extraordinary reverence for the cow has led to the development and marketing of many ‘products’ made from the secretions and excretions of the cow, with claims that these products may be more ‘lucrative’ than even the dairy.[8]

calm down about 20 notches. Atheism is fine as long as you dont judge others who pray in peace.

Einstein passionately agreed with Freud that to be infected with sacred superstitions is a bad thing.

"THE WHOLE THING IS SO PATENTLY INFANTILE, SO FOREIGN TO REALITY, THAT TO ANYONE WITH A FRIENDLY ATTITUDE TO HUMANITY IT IS PAINFUL TO THINK THAT THE MAJORITY OF MORTALS WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO RISE ABOVE THIS VIEW OF LIFE"
Sigmund Freud
http://www.freud.org.uk/education/topic/10573/freud-and-religion/

The religions of mankind must be classed among the mass-delusions of this kind.
No one, needless to say, who shares a delusion ever recognizes it as such.
Sigmund Freud

I am in awe at how peaceful these people are. The pictures alone are very inspiring.
I don't see any police hovering around with their guns ready for a violent outburst.
I don't see any people yelling or holding grotesque signs.
I don't see any vendors with overpriced garbage to sell, capitalizing on the crowd.
I see gorgeous scenery and free, happy, naked people.

I'm gonna go pack my bags....
