Religion : Without religion you have good people doing good things and you have bad people doing bad things. But to make a good person do bad things, it take religion. I must say that I am confounded by the need of a lot of seemingly sensible people to pledge their allegiance to a nothingness, an imaginary deity while their fellow humans beings suffer. Heck, they will even try to appease their non-existent deity at the expense of another human being. Christianity & Islam do scare me. And I’m not talking about the average moderate people but the fundamentalists. Hindus scare me too but to a lesser degree than Christians & Muslims. Just today Kuwait passed a law that says that any Muslim insults God, his prophets, messengers, Prophet Mohammad’s wives or the Koran, in any form of expression, if they don’t repent, will get the death penalty. reduces the sentence to at least five years in prison and a fine of 10,000 dinars ($36,000). Non-Muslims will be sentenced to 10 years in prison if convicted of violating the law, which will take effect after signed by the emir and then published in the Official Gazette within a month of parliamentary approval. Scary! Allah = Imaginary, people = real!
Women : this is ofcourse more tongue-in-cheek but also, can even other women claim to understand women? They say things that mean something else and you are in trouble if you don’t understand the hidden message that would have even taxed Sherlock Holmes! Mixed signals, yes can mean no, no can mean yes, the clothes, the shoes, the high heels, the chick flicks, the books, the gossip, the makeup and so many other things. Unfortunately, they don’t come with a manual. But it can be fun trying to understand women and it can also be very frustrating and dangerous, if you are a man! I bet we find all the answers to the secrets of the universe and what makes it tick before we can ever hope to even try and comprehend the fairer sex. (I better me careful, 90% of my readers are women)
Politics In India: seriously this country runs on corruption and politics is the bastard child of religion. The politician, most of them anyway, are so damn blatantly evil & corrupt and the masses don’t see it at all. 99% of them don’t do much good and a majority of them want India to devolve and are holding us back. Do they want to take us back to the dark ages? Uneducated, ill-mannered, uncouth, black hearts, money grabbing and hypocritical sonsofbitches who should read a book once in a while. They wear white all the time to contrast with their dark black hearts. So many politicians, so many political parties – it’s so easy to break away from one party and start a new one. Makes no sense at all. And Indians suffer!
