God and Me

Thinking

Most people feel that I don’t believe in God and I wouldn’t blame them. Truth is, I have never given anyone a reason to think otherwise. I don’t consider myself as an atheist, and I have often said I am agnostic. But that isn’t entirely true either. I don’t believe God in the conventional sense. Let me break it down further. Creator of the universe Most religions consider their God to be the creator of all, whether it is visible or invisible, living or lifeless, observed or perceived phenomenon. But there seems to be a contradiction with such an assumption. Is God a singular entity that does not confirm to the universe? If we were to assume that to be true, then what is the source that created God or made God, God. If such a singular entity was created why can’t it happen again? If there is such a source, then …

Why machines will overtake humans

I am a huge fan of Sci-Fi and there are quite a few posts on my blog where I refer to Doctor Who, Star Trek and other Sci-Fi series. But just because I like those TV shows, does not mean I believe everything in it. However, watching those has expanded the horizons of my mind. One of the questions I have wondered about is will robots and computers overtake mankind? I came across this post, Why machines will never overtake Humans? from Akshat Goel where he stated his view on the same. Some of the points that he mentioned helped me in forming my own opinion on the same and as usual I have a different view on things. He thought about this because of a movie that he saw, but I am not going to dissect the movie. But I will say this much. I don’t consider it to be …

Matrix

There was a time when all I could think of was flying. It was my dream, my ambition and my fantasy. These days, I am not able to dream, I have no more ambitions and I fantasize being a child again. Has this world broken me? I would like to think not. I may have accepted that my life is no longer being controlled by me, but that does not mean i am going to live my life by laws laid down by the society. Just because I did not have any say in my birth does not mean my life is not my own. If I was asked whether I would like to have a life in this world, I probably would have said no. But now that I am born, I  intent to live life the way I choose. Society, God or any superior being; whoever decided what …

Extinct – Humans

Human race is doomed. This assumption has been made based on two facts. 1. Humans marry. 2. Humans invent. We call this the height of human evolution. That is the problem with it. Since we have evolved as much as we can as a species, now all we can do is grow. As much as I would like to have the powers of X-Men, I am afraid that the best (or the worst) we can hope for now, is less hair. The future Humans will not fly or read each others mind; they will have less and less hair and the one with the least amount of hair will be considered the most eligible. Marriage is major difference between man and any other species when it comes to social groups. Evolution depends on male and female choosing the best available. It is a formula that has worked since the Big Bang and we are the living proof. The choice …
