Free will


I am republishing this post, as a form or blog-recycling – an idea I caught on from Wise Donkey’s blog (click). Coincidentally, tomorrow happens to also be the anniversary of my blog, and the time this post was published for the first time. I have edited the post a bit. This was the first post […]

“Don’t know, yet” is the first step to gaining further knowledge


Possibly, the simplest-worded summary of how traditional religions and naturalism have treated mysteries and new knowledge differently – in particular, to be found in the last paragraph. It is a very short post and will take only around 5 min to read. Search Judaism – A Critique: Part Two (II) – (Click)

How Morality is Indispensable to a Social Life


This post had started as a response to one of the comments by Darshan, whose ideas and blog-posts (click) I really enjoy and also recommend to other readers who appreciate critical thinking. The reasons I am publishing this response as a separate blog post are: because the response is too long; I would not like […]

Missing Marble’s Mystery

You will spread yourself wide. You will spread yourself thin. And before you know it, you will evaporate into nothingness. Do not be […]

Do I deserve pink chaddis?


*Chaddi is a word used interchangeably for “shorts” or “briefs/panties”. This is a post I’ve been planning to do since long, because it was after a long time some event had made me introspect and analyze things with utmost depth possible, and yet leave me, possibly, without answer. Also, this post is going to be […]
