The Hedron collider underground in the Swiss-French border is an Twenty Seven Kilometre long Super Conductor Magnetic Ring to test theories of Particle Physics conducted by CERN [Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (European Council for Nuclear Research)] The so called ‘God Particle’ was discovered here.
The ‘God Particle is a misnomer and Peter Ware Higgs, a British Particle Physicist born in Newcastle, in the North East of England who first theorised about W & Z boson particle said, “I find it embarrassing because, though I’m not a believer myself, I think it is the kind of misuse of terminology which I think might offend some people.” His choice was ‘The Goddamn Particle’. However, it was air- brushed over on a comment by the Nobel-prize winning physicist Leon Lederman, the word ‘God Particle’ was coined.
When the news broke, a very excitable Prahlad Bhargav of NDTV of India commented that India has known about the presence of ‘The God’ particle from ancient times! Of course Indians know it all!!! However, with rational thinking it is perhaps quite acceptable to accept the concept of ‘Brahma’ as a component of particle physics which explains it all.
The word ‘Goddamn’ is used to express frustration. The atheist Peter Higgs could not have vented his frustration with the idea of presence of ‘God’. Therefore, to me it was his polite way to say ‘bloody’.
Humankind has created ‘God’ in its own image. Not the other way round what Christianity drums in. Along with Christianity, Judaism and Islam is based on the existence of Abraham. Is it not incredible the if you remove the letter ‘A’ from Abraham we are left it ‘Braham’.
I think I have stirred up passion already and fingers may already have been raised against this ‘Hindu Infidel’ trying to destroy the Abrahamic religions.
Just a minute. I am not a so called Hindu. This is a word coined by foreigners to describe various rituals (perhaps numbering many hundreds) devised by priests to fool the weak people to please the supposed God/Gods/Goddesses. The path one followers is known as Dhamma in Pali and Dhrama in Sanskrit. Neither I concur with the ideation the Super Gigantic Fusion reactor star we call the Sun, could have produced the Gita.
The closest to the truth that a rational mind can accept is Gautama Buddha’s enquiry into the unknown. But, he could not escape the clutches of religious zealots and his teachings have become a religion with many a factions.
The seminal book of Richard Dawkins ‘The God Illusion’ is a book ‘must read’ for everybody in this planet to make sense of reality. However, he is a much maligned man. Many people in the western hemisphere is still deluding themselves insisting that Jesus Christ as the son of god born in a virgin birth. But historical records show that he was an illegitimate child of a Roman Soldier. He left his birth land at the age of 12 and some evidence supports him to have arrived in Tibet and returned to his homeland at the age of forty. At crucifixion he was at a comatose state and he came out of it after 2 days and disappeared to appear in Kesar( Kashmir) after some years.
The gentler text of the Bible (Despite influenced by ruthless Paul), has the touch of Buddhism for all readers of the Bible to appreciate; give credence to Jesus Christ being heavily influenced by Buddhist philosophy. It is very easy to see the contrasting cruel verses of the Torah and the Qur’an which are the twain in their train of thoughts.
The story of the origin of the Qur’an however beats it all The ‘all-knowing’ Islamic God, apparently did not realize that Mohammad could not read. But he kept on asking the so called illiterate man to ‘Iqra (read) from the heavenly Qura’n. However the Ingeel comes to the rescue of hapless Mohammad and voices out Allah’s pronouncements. These pronouncements were in supposed to be Arabic without a single error. But whether it is Uthmanic Arabic Qura’n or any good translation of the book shows without ambiguity of variances, contradictions that the ‘God’ himself had to abrogate verses to ‘correct Him’. There are fallacies, scientific inaccuracies that can be made by only someone who has limited knowledge and have learnt things from a source which itself is full of knowledge of the period ( full of errors as per today’s science and evidence) but not from the eternity to eternity a true ‘God’ being would have possessed if He existed. Islam’s only proof of existence of Allah is this Qura’n and Muhammad saying so and his wife supporting him. What an evidence !
From the history of evolution of Islam it is beyond doubt that the current Qura’n is the one which was authorized to be used by Khalif Uthman who burnt the rest. How do the Muslims know it has a mirror copy in Jannat to insist that it is book by Allah? To add to the confusion it is known now that an older version of Qur’an has been found in Yemen with different verses to the current one. So Muslims take your pick which one is your Allah’s supposed pure book. By the way, as the story goes that Yemeni Qur’ans has been now being protracted as to save Islam this book has to be destroyed.
This goes for Christianity too. No wonder the Vatican or the other Orthodoxies or Protestants do not want a full scientific evaluation of Jesus’s presence in Tibet and Kashmir. Because this proof will destroy Christianity for sure.
So the moral is there are many influential people and establishments wants the religions to prevail as this ‘opium of the poor’ gives them the power they want to prevail and fulfill their dreams. To achieve their goal these people use preaching tact, magic, threats and all. For them religion is not what Einstein described as a ‘Childish Superstition‘, but, a great game of power and politics.
After all religion was devised by early human societies initially as controlling mechanism not unlike today’s Police services.
Rational readers to this piece, PLEASE PONDER, why should you give your brain to be controlled? If you do want to, should not you be questioning yourselves on your sanity?
