He was a senior clerk at municipal office, naturally unsatisfied, struggling and angry about his own work. He was looking for a rescue from his poor state and he came to know the government plan to employ some good workers at areas suffering food shortage and crisis. He thought of devoting himself for this noble cause, hoping for emancipation by serving the human kind, helping the famine hit poor. Yet, it was not that easy to get a chance to be employed at the regions suffering famine. He knew he would need a high approach and references from higher officials and politicians and he was ready to bribe some. All of his colleagues who were employed for the famine relief programme were already glittering like a fresh red rose within a month, while he was still suffering the same old job and he was determined to get a chance at any cost.
He came to my house very early in the morning and said, “Madam, “koi Jugaad lagaao“; help me in finding a way out. I asked, for what?
He said, Madam, I wish to work at famine relief programme, do something and transfer me for that job, I will be extremely thankful for you, you know how difficult it is to lead a good life with this clerical job, we middle class people keep struggling for every materialistic opportunity, if I get a chance to work at famine relief programme, I will also grab some rubies from the treasure.
I said, but Mr. Viththal, you have no record of any sort of missionary work and social services, if anyhow I try to get you employed at famine relief programme, even than what good you will do there? We need actual good workers there in the famine hit areas, people are suffering extreme scarcity of water, food and fodder, children are starving to death and cattle are at the verge of end, there should be a proper way and efficient workers to provide them all possible sort of relief.
Mr Viththal said, “Madam, you are wrong about my abilities, I have already worked for many self-service-associations. I know how extreme famine situations are and I know what I can do for the people suffering out there. You are possibly not aware of the fact that all those who are employed at famine relief programme are already making gold out of sand, and in my case, you are asking for a character and capability certificate. Please tell me clearly, what help I may get from you regarding my job transfer to famine relief programme.
I said, it is not very difficult, I have direct connection with famine relief ministry and famine relief minister is my good pal. Whenever I will refer you, you will get a transfer letter to famine relief programme. However, are you ready to share the famine?
He said, “Ohh madam, why are you making it complicated, I won’t be the only one to enjoy the butter. Even ants will get the remnants of cheese and you will surely get your lioness share, but how could you manage this double standard? Just moments ago, you were sceptical about my character and capabilities and now you are asking for your share?
I said, Mr. Viththal, honesty does not suit in such situations; famine is to be taken as defence deals. People are starving in huge numbers, no matter how much you provide them, it will not be sufficient and they will suffer. Its similar to the work of a coal broker, no matter you do nothing, your hands will be stained black, people will complain and blame you for their sufferings and it has no solution, no one can satisfy their demands. That is why Mr. Minister is employing only those workers for the famine relief programme who are efficient in making best use of the situations, make fortunes of the swindle, that is why the workers already employed in relief programme are gathering riches, and are providing the asked share for Mr. Minister. As for me, why should I loose my chance of making a share when I know it’s a huge scam which will never be questioned.
Mr. Viththal said, yes madam, you are right, I agree for everything, I will provide you your share and will serve Mr. Minister too, but please transfer me to work at famine relief programme. It is high time, if anyhow it rained, then both of us will suffer, as the issue of famine will loose its shine. So let us pray for staying the famine so that we can keep distributing reliefs in famine.
I said, Ok Mr. Viththal, come to my house again at evening and then we will visit Mr. Minister’s Bungalow together, you should be employed at famine relief programme as soon as possible so that the relief distribution may be properly channelized and we can gather the possible benefits.
After intensive talks with Mr. Viththal about the famine relief programme, I started planning for the evening to take Viththal Bhai to Mr. Minister’s house. I knew it would be hugely beneficial for all three of us.
Above was a fiction explaining the governmental systems and their working. Such is the nature of collective approach to solve the common issues of society. Instead of solving the problem and distributing the relief, the collective government officials and politicians often tend to distribute the problem itself, as they know, the more the problem will remain, the more chance they will get to make fortunes for their own self. Collective systems naturally inculcate dishonesty, corruption and wastage, and it is unquestionable, as government systems based on compulsory taxation is a form of extreme collective approach, all such system suffers corruption, frauds, swindles, bribery and dishonesty.
In the book Time Will Run Back,1 Henry Hazlitt explained this fundamental problem of collective systems properly through a discussion between the protagonist and his ally, here is an excerpt–
“What you are saying, Adams, is that we are all more generous collectively than we are individually. Or rather, that we are all willing to be more generous with other people’s money than we are with our own. Or still rather, that our vicarious generosity, our pseudo-generosity, is greater than our real generosity; and that therefore we should force somebody else to contribute to the support of the needy through taxes, confiscation, or what not. What you are saying, and what Marx was saying, is that those who have not created the wealth should seize it from those who have created it.”
I suggest every one to read the book Time Will Run Back at least once, as it helps one in understanding the fundamental philosophical and economical issues in best possible way.
Globalization not only has raised a stage of cultural sharing and expansions, it has provided a wider scope in every aspect of common life whole round the world.
National politics is also not unscathed of the global effects. Out national politics and economics, so much depends on the various global international groups, organizations, planning commissions, treaties and protocols.
One of the most important of them is the Kyoto Protocol and Environmentalism is the new political mantra at the helm.
Almost every other country is now whirling around to cut the carbon emission rates.
Now when there are enough evidences that global warming is nothing but a fake idea, the environmentalist politicians have a new way to rush upon their emotional tactics based on the call to “save mother earth”.
US president Obama has promised to invigorate the green energy industry as the new engine for the economic growth. The current economic crisis is providing enough chances to raise his sticks and implement his plans to create the new bubble of green economy providing millions of new jobs and to achieve that, he is going to implement some governmental “incentives” to promote green energy.
These incentives include carbon taxes and huge subsidies for innovation and development of “renewable” non-carbon energy resources.
India is also not very far behind, and as India is a signatory member of Kyoto protocol, Indian government promised it would introduce new norms that would involve tax concessions, incentive schemes including legislative framework to motivate Indian Inc. to effectively undertake carbon emissions reduction program.1
India is already facing an electricity crisis and we really do not produce enough electricity to provide electricity in every household. A big portion of rural India still remains in dark at nights. Yet our politicians can promise to reduce carbon emission within a scheduled period.
Obviously, politicians never promise to fulfill their commitments.
On reality grounds, the “green energy” drive is fake and failure because, the environmentalists not only oppose the coal thermal electric plants, they also oppose nuclear plants too, and what they support for is the “renewable energy resources” like wind, solar and sea energy and that makes it a conundrum.
The governments, by providing huge subsidies to the innovation in green energy market can make it some heavy deal, but it will not be helping anyone.
The renewable energy resources cannot fulfil our requirements of energy not because we lack technology, but because it is not viable nor it is economic.
Around 76% of Indian energy comes through coal thermal plants, 21 % by hydroelectric plants and 3 % by nuclear plants. With the new nuclear energy deal, India will try to look for options to increase the percentage of nuclear energy.2
The “renewable” resources play almost no role. We cannot rely on wind mills because of intermittent nature of winds; also, wind mills require huge grounds. We cannot rely on solar cells, because of extremely low efficiencies of solar cells; also, it is not economically viable idea. The latest and most efficient solar cells use Lead selenide (PbSe) in their making. Just like PbSe, almost all heavy metal salts necessary for a solar cell are toxic in nature and can cause much greater harms to environment than what CO2 can cause. That is, the renewable resources can harm nature much more. In addition, heavy metals are rare, hence expensive, and thus not economically viable.
No matter how huge subsidies government provide, we cannot afford it.
Furthermore, such endeavours have already proven their failure.3
Many European countries are again returning towards coal thermal plants because their earlier initiatives to bring upon carbon taxes, investment, and subsidies in green energy are making electricity too much costly and hence common people are suffering, also, no plans are working to decrease any carbon emission.4
The conundrum of energy is because, fossil fuels are finite, we cannot remain dependent on them forever, renewable energy resources are not sufficient to fulfill our requirements, and nuclear energy is also not a very viable option.
Although fossil fuels may end earlier, yet the charcoal and coal tar beds will keep providing enough fuel and hence power to the world for longer periods.
The example of European failure clearly explains why taxes never work. Because of increased carbon taxes, the price of coal increased sharply and that was what government wanted to fight against global warming. Yet the result of all this is the huge increase in power rates needed for everyday usage.
India is already facing huge inflation rates. The rich can buy costly power and electricity too, the green energy steps will stress more burdens over the poor and no carbon tax can actually reduce that burden.
Carbon tax is also not a good economic move and it will increase poverty. We know that to reduce and ultimately remove poverty, production is the only way. By slapping carbon taxes on production houses, government will reduce the production and that will increase poverty.
The overall situation is government can provide no viable solution for electricity crisis and the environmental cause simultaneously. Government interference in market in support of environmentalism will not only make people poor, it will hurt the environment more. We cannot opt for hydroelectric plants because of the other side damages hydroelectric plants can cause (Earthquakes). With the limitations of wind and sea energy, and the economic failure of solar cells, we can not rely on them; furthermore, the making of solar cells can prove to be bigger danger to environment and human life. Not only Lead Selenide but polysilicons also left a huge toxic residual, which harms human life and nature much more than coal and we cannot rely on nuclear energy production too. Even in US nuclear power plants provide only 17% required energy and government are in opposition to nuclear plants because of the dangers of nuclear waste and the consequences. There is no safe way to dump nuclear wastes.
Overall, coal is the best option for our energy requirements and as we know that coal will keep serving us for many centuries more, we have enough time to innovate, invent and discover new ways, yet for that too, government interference is not viable.
In fact, the more we provide freedom to market, the more close we reach towards the solution for the energy conundrum.5
The current electricity losses in India during transmission and distribution are around 45%. It is huge and if we privatize the production, transmission and distribution of energy, the private owners will reduce this huge loss because of their profit incentives and that not only will bring electricity within reach or poor, it will make many dark villages bright.
The privatization of electric distribution is already an ongoing process and it is helping in reducing the wastage, yet we need a free market in electricity sector as that would induce the private investment in the innovation and development of energy production techniques and that will include nuclear techniques too.
Furthermore, if government stop interfering in oil, coal market, and stop providing subsidies, the common users will also get incentives to reduce wastage and over usage.
Thus, the real green initiative will be the reduction of government interference in market and provision of property rights as that will reduce any chances of exploitation of common man through government supported corporatism. We need to understand the difference between corporatism or crony capitalism and free market laissez-faire capitalism, and we need to adopt the later one.
The current slapping of carbon taxes on Industries and dumping of collected tax in non-viable energy resources is not going to help either environment or the economy.
Basically, the US government and other governments also, aim to slap carbon taxes just to decrease the fiscal deficits, as government know that industries cannot work without carbon. Such moves are never taken for helping environmental cause; they are rather more Keynesian economic steps to increase taxes, which ultimately hurt the economy as production reduces.
The promises of huge governmental investments and subsidies in green energy are also nothing but similar Keynesian steps to increase government spending.
Yet, it is highly improbable to help any economy with such spending in non-productive activities; they will cause further economic downturn.
Taxation and subsidies never brings any good.

Talks of dowry are nothing new for Indians. No matters how much the percentage of literacy has been increased, or how much standards of living have been enhanced, such cursed cultural-religious ceremonial system of marriage remains in the realm of Indian marriages. The bride’s family pays a dowry to the groom to recognize that he will provide good life and security for his wife.
If someone personally asks to me, I have no problem regarding dowry. But I have sincere problems with marriage and society. Basically, dowry is no wrong if it is NOT taken as religious-cultural tradition, but taken as a legal contract. Breach of the contract will mean legal charges being filed against the breaker of that simple contract. For that marriage contract, the two partners, who surely can be lovers, will sit up with calmness to discuss their priorities, philosophical, political, social, individual preferences and patterns and will make a mutually beneficial marriage rules applicable for both of them equally. Obviously, that written document may or may not involve any monetary transactions, that is, dowry may or may not be a part of such free-willed marriage contract. Yet, the contract will be enforceable.
The breakage of simply defined rules for the couple by any of the party may and will lead to punishment (monetary or otherwise). It is freedom of both the girl and boys to keep up their desires regarding a happy married life and make their personal laws for the mutually beneficial relation between the two. The couple may/may not agree on varied subjects like allowance for polygamy or polyandry etc. let’s say a couple agrees for monoandrous and monogamous relation, i.e. for both the bride and groom, sex outside the marriage is unbearable. That is, two people married on mutual consent for monogamy/monoandry. After age 40, male felt he don’t want sex anymore.
Then there should be freedom for wife to take divorce and go for other man, but if the husband and wife agrees to remain in contract, and allow polyandry for wife, then there is no problem. But if wife cheats, than it is cheat and immorality, that is, polyandry/polygamy itself is not immoral, but if there is a contract for monoandry/monogamy and that contract is breached not by the mutual consent of the two parties engaged, but by cheating and fraud, then it is immoral and illegal, and that will be punished as breach of contract.
But in India, the marriage system is not contract based. And that is why dowry becomes a demon. There’s no legal responsibility of the husband to take good care of wife, while he can surely exploit the girl/wife for further demands of dowry by simply acting illegal. Anywhere and in any form, where there is no economic and social freedom for the individuals, the women suffers predominantly. The women will keep suffering the illegal and immoral acts of her dowry-demanding corrupt husband while he will keep breaking the generally presumed marriages law. Woman won’t oppose because of the fear of society, how the hell will she live if she leaves her coercive and exploiter husband? Living alone is such a curse for a woman you know, and what and how will she earn and eat? Will she again be an unwanted responsibility on her father’s/ brother’s shoulders? What will happen to her children etc, so many ill-reasons for a woman to keep suffering within the four walls of her imprisoning SASURAL! Obviously, woman will have to counter attack such societal moralities which forces her to accept the wrong and discourages her to use her individual rights. It is not like government or society hasn’t done anything for the women. There are various laws against dowry and domestic violence. But such laws are irrefutably redundant and on a reasonable basis, are wrong. They are redundant because irrespective of all such laws, the violence against women and the dowry-demands never stopped. They are unreasonable, because on legal formats, such laws create a difference between rights of men and women on gender basis, providing more and unbalanced legal powers to the women. Because of societal inequalities between the two genders, the genuinely needing women seldom (nearly never) get themselves in a position to use such laws and earn justice. While on other hand, some of the pretentious and cheater women irresponsibly use such laws to harass and exploit the male counterparts.
The ideal state would be equal and reasonable irrevocable rights and total freedom for citizens irrespective of their gender, class, creed, religion etc and non-interference of government, society, authority in individual freedom. < discussed here Liberty, Tolerance, Freedom of expression and Political Correctness!
In Ayn Rand’s words, “Evil requires the sanction of Victim!” it is the woman who can stop all the atrocities against womanhood. It is her individual strength and the inalienable rational rights which she acquires by virtue of her own rational faculty and not by the provision of any government or society which can and ultimately will prompt her to stand against any ill-defined tradition or cultural-religious based ill-practices.
A woman’s freedom is not dependent on the irrational reservation or governmental announced laws based on flawed basis. The freedom and enlightenment of womanhood is dependent only on the individual woman standing on her own against any ill any injustice of religion, society, community or state government. It is the woman alone, who can safeguard and void the evil victimizing her, and none else. And for that, obviously women will have to demand for her individual rights, she will have to stand alone. She will have to be the light!
Let us consider a just opposite situation. Let’s say it is not bride or her family who have to pay dowry, but it is the groom who has to pay dowry in order to get married to prove to the bride’s family that he will be a good provider. Will that change the situations of womanhood to any better state?
Obviously, the answer is a big NO. It won’t effect in the situation of women in the society. The example is the Thailand’s cultural/traditional system of “Sin Sod”, according to which, the male has to give dowry to prove that he can be a good provider for the bride. But, in absence of social and economical freedom, even that causes a curse to women. (Read more about Sin Sod here Thai Dowries Change with Time.
Obviously, I am not against this system too if individual rights and mutually consensual premises are enforced under free-will contract system.
Many westerners marries farm girls from NE of Thailand by paying good amount in Sin Sod, some of them even marries girls who have already worked in bars or prostitution rackets for the cause of poverty.
Mostly, girls are being sold there by their families irrespective of their consent or non-consent just for the cause of greed of money by the poor farmers. The girls may be minors too. Hence, it causes unwanted breakage of individual rights and exploitation of individuals who obviously are women, girls. Many Thai men just cannot marry because of lack of good amount for Sin Sod, again similar situations as in India. There also, the dowry system proves to be working ok at rich family cordons. But at middle class and poor class, same dowry system proves to be havoc. It simply shows that, until the woman herself won’t stand for her individual rights as an individual and not as a mere part of a family or community or sect or religion/tradition or country, she won’t get any justice, no matters what ever changes the cultural traditions may take place. There is only one way for freedom, and that way is the Individual’s will and strength to be free on the basis of reason!
GOD RESPONDS TO PARIS HILTON’S CLAIMS SHE FOUND HIM
Mount Sinai (AFP) Speaking in what is only His second interview in more than two millenia, God has said He wants to be categorically ‘on the record’ that Paris Hilton definitely hasn’t found him. His comments were made to Moses XLIII, the forty-third generation descendent of Moses who recorded God’s first interview.
“There’s no way Paris Hilton could have found me,” Moses quoted God as saying on his ABC television program ‘Stone Tablet News’ on Monday. “I am Almighty and I don’t just move in mysterious ways, I’m darn good at playing hide-and-seek!”
Moses said God, who sounded in fine spirits despite dwindling numbers of believers, thinks Hilton had Him confused with His only begotten son, Jesus.
“When Jesus was young, He was a very crafty hide-and-seek player,” God said. “Anybody who has read My book will recall the time he managed to hide from Mary and Joseph for three days and nights in a temple of all places!”
When questioned by Moses as to Jesus’ whereabouts from the age of twelve to thirty-three, God replied, “Not telling! But I will say it was rather foolish of him to have come out of hiding. We all know what that folly led to!”
God then claimed that Hilton may even have Him confused with the Virgin Mary.
“Think of it this way,” God said unto Moses. “Paris Hilton probably has never even seen a grilled cheese sandwich in her life. Prison food like that can make people see all sorts of strange things but when was the last time anybody ever saw Me burned into a grilled cheese sandwich?”
Independent sources confirm that manifestations of God have never taken any anthropormorphic form and that it’s only ever been the Virgin Mary and her Son Jesus, who have ever been seen in this form.
When asked by Moses why Paris Hilton should claim to have found Him, God replied, “Bless her, her heart’s probably in the right place but she isn’t one of My brightest creatures. Obviously, the publicity is good for Me too and goes to show that repentent sinners invariably turn to My religion when they get sent to jail and not one of those kooky new-age ones they all flock to on the outside world.”
God then scoffed at suggestions that Paris Hilton intended to give up her lifestyle of endless VIP parties, red carpets and pursuing the limelight upon her release.
“She’s obviously forgotten My omnipresence if she thinks she can tell such porkies and not get smited. Besides, the whole Rupert Murdoch empire would crumble if it wasn’t for the bubble-headed antics of celebutantes like Hilton.”
When Moses asked if this would be such a bad thing, God replied, “Of course! Rupert is the embodiment of evil on earth and without evil, there can be no free will and without free will, there can be no salvation. The whole darn Christian industry would collapse if something like that ever happened!”
In summarizing, Moses asked whether God believed Hilton found Jesus or the Virgin Mary to which He replied, “My money is on Mary. Hilton is, afterall, not exactly on death row. If she was, she’d have a better chance of finding Jesus but she still wouldn’t find Me — especially after just three days looking!”
Meanwhile, God took time to speak with Pope Benedict XVI after his interview with Moses.
Pope Benedict asked, “Holy Father, who do you think will win the soccer World Cup this year?”
God merely smiled and tsk-tsked the pontiff and, amid a fury of thunder and lightning, ascended back up to Heaven.
(I enjoy writing humorous pieces as much as any other kind of fiction. A style I particularly like is the fake news item, such as this.)
On the 7th May this year, it was noted that the Universe had had another orgasm. These orgasms are cataclysmic. I say that the orgasm was noted on the 7th May, but there is a wee problem. The Universe has been expanding for about 15 thousand million years; the faster parts of the big bang explosion going at close to speed of light. So any light coming from those far off reaches, can take up to 15 thousand million years to get here. The Universe has beeen orgasmating for millions of years and information is still reaching us about most of them.
These orgasms take place in stars. Even if the nearest star to us, Proxima Centauri, had an orgasm, it would take 4 years and 73 days before we knew it, because the information about the orgasm (e.g. visible light and neutrinos) takes that long to get here. As it happens, Proxima Centauri is not likely to have an orgasm, it is the gall bladder of our Galaxy. But there are stars in our Galaxy that ought to be called Ultima Clitori because they are shuddering on the brink of a humungous orgasm. If the nearest one of these actually had an orgasm, we would never, ever know about it, because the blast would vaporise the Earth before we even had time to utter the famous words:
What the fuck was that?
The orgasm that was noted last Monday, 7th May was first observed last October, but only now have the data been evaluated. Orgasm experts the world over are unanimous about this one:
“This was a truly monstrous orgasm, a hundred times more energetic than a typical one.”
“Of all orgasms ever observed, this was the Queen.”
“We were astonished to see how bright it got, and how long it lasted.”
“This was not your run-of-the-mill orgasm.”
So when did this orgasm actually take place and how far away was it? It happened about 240 million years ago, about the time we now call the transition from the Permian to Triassic Period. Yup, dinosaur time. How far away? I could give you a big number with lots of noughts. But let me force you to imagine the scale: to some extent. The light took 240 million years to get here. Light travels at 186,000 miles per second. There are about 10 times pi million seconds in a year. Work it out. God, my brain hurts. Where is she?
If you want to know more about these orgasms, and find out how much they resemble our orgasms, then leave a tick here and I’ll tell you more. Otherwise I’ll shut up. I’ll take you through the process using language like this and hope you will share my wonder. I know of nothing in the whole Universe to compare with one of these orgasms, or rather, supernovae, as the orgasm watchers call them, except of course, my own.
The image here is of a famous supernova from 1987. Although it looks beautiful, its name is rather dull: SN 1987A. The first supernova observed in 1987 was called SN 1987A, the second SN1987B and so on. My orgasms this year have been called ORG 2007A, ORG 2007B and so on. I confidently expect, and I will explain shortly how to spot a pending orgasm, that I will very soon experience ORG 2007EA which will be:
Not my run-of-the-mill orgasm.

Where it should be the age of reason, India and in fact whole world is facing the quagmires of irrationalities, conformist moralities, pseudo-sciences, and games of quacks. Clairvoyant hotlines propagations, politicians confer with astrologers and public rebuff their doctor’s recommendations in their gullible belief for “alternative therapy” proposed by quacks, pseudo-scientists, and religious looters, an infant is lead to some palmist first rather than to some vaccination center. In the old days, champions of actual science were being entrusted to debunk and demystify such irrational baloney.
But where are those champions and protectors of science today?
The TV news channels of India, which must propagate helpful objective news, keeps showing Tarot card players programs, astrologer’s advices, horoscope results, and various superstitious analogies. Some news channels even crosses all limits and starts supporting the totally irrational and laughable ideas like some days ago, when a primitive age old fossil of a beheaded crocodile was found, a news channel (IndiaTV) called a religious buffoon who suggested that Indian Puranic stories are true and that crocodile might be beheaded by the Hindu god Vishnu in old times.
They teach science in school, and gets involved in superstitions of highest degrees. Last year, a science teacher in Thane, Maharashtra, killed/sacrificed his own 20 years old daughter in desire of having a son.
It is extremely unfortunate that the teachers of science themselves are such a irrational animals.
This is surely not the first instance in history when people have assumed their fates and future can be read and known in the stars or palm lines and their diseases and illness can be cured by devotion, prayers and charities at temples or church or mosque. The scientific uprising occured in the 17th century, before that, such ideas were common whole round the world. Women were accused of witchcraft and burned and killed brutally, are we talking of Dark Ages? No, we are talking of current state of India. Woman accused of witchcraft tied to tree in Bihar. Animals were sacrificed to please gods and demons and natural calamities, these things are being done even now.
After that, came Age of Reason, the age of science and objectivism, glorified by the brilliance of Isaac Newton. He openly stated that He framed no hypothesis and he rejected all ideas that were not supported by reasonable facts and observational confirmations and evidences.
After that, the science developed, and brightened the earth with the glory of humanity. The quacks and all their nonsense and buffoonery were banished and discarded.
But again now, the reason is being hurt and the mysticism is gaining roots, physicists assume that a quantum particle can propagate in various different paths in chorus, or reverse backwards in the time dimension line, or arbitrarily explode into and out of reality from nothingness. These cheaters take pleasure in treating the whole universe like a “fluctuation of the vacuum,” or as an inconsequential and immaterial entity of an infinite band of universes, as a hologram. The structure of this bizarre universe is an insignificant entity called “spacetime,” which shrinks and expands, curves and goes to yoga classes and can have myriads of dimensions.
All of this further distorts the society and hurts the individuals forcing them to go back in the age of Dark and Mysticism. It provides no good, rather than it brings one nostalgic for something as rational as witchcraft, and the idiotic pseudo-scientists and quacks enjoys their victory over reason again, hurting the society and propagating their looting and exploiting games again.
Even some pseudo-scientists are hell bend to prove their saying that “The End of Physics Is Near.” Some of them assert that they will develop an ultimate “theory of everything,” which will resolve everything related to physics and future scientists and physicists will do not have to do anything but playing computer games. We can card their maglomania, but there message seem to be agreeable. The end that seems near, although, is not a preposterous rise to all-knowledge with the help of Theory Of all but it is an embarrassing crash to pseudo-science.
And why only physics, they hurt everything justified by reason, and feels they are doing great.
They discard theory of evolution- they’re working to disprove the diabolical theory of evolution. They have already proved the divine theory of creationism; by trying to undermine the theory of evolution… I don’t understand how this proof works, why don’t I understand, because it does not work at all…
They are such fools, that they even discard the very obvious and eminent facts like the Theory of Gravity. Evangelical Scientists Refute Gravity with New ‘Intelligent Falling’ Theory
They say that gravity is a myth…a half-baked theory. If gravity was true, the theory of gravitation would have been called the fact of gravitation. The truth is that invisible fairies actually pull us down towards the earth. When u lift a ball and drop it, these invisible fairies (that cannot be detected by scientific methods, because they are “above science”) hold the ball and bring it to the ground to give the illusion that the ball fell.
Yet, it is not like it all started just now; Scientists and Physicists didn’t attain this situtation of rational intellectual insolvency while sleeping. In the 20th century, Einstein also explicitly discarded Newton’s scientific method. Einstein wrote, “We now realize how much in error are those theorists who believe that theory comes inductively from experience.” As an alternative, he asserted that theories are “free creations of the human mind.” The unavoidable well-expected result of such freedom is the presently fashionable “fantasy physics” which is nothing but pseudo-science.
Obviously, physicists don’t acknowledge and confess that they are engaged in fantasies, rather they claims they are engaged in “hypothetico-deductive method,” which seems more scientific because of the term. This technique, on the other hand, allows them to dream up any “theory” that spur their fantasy and fancy, provided they can construe at least one upshot that might be noticeable by somebody somewhere at some time.
I doubt whether they even know what the difference between theory and law is.
History is evident of the vital responsibility of physics in the advancement of human life. Right through the world, understanding of physics has elevated human from an irrational, superstitious, gullible savage who shrinks facing nature to a successful thinker who triumph over nature and moulds it for his own benefit and progress. The practical profits of this renovation are too copious and too obvious to list.
Yet, there is much more at venture for future technology. As the legacy of Isaac Newton is fading and physics is continuously being attacked by these neurotic pseudo-scientists who supports departure from reality, We are starting to lose the prospect of the glory of Humanity, and the human nature: the rational faculty, the mind devoted for reason. And this is dangerous situation, because if human is not a rational animal, than what he is, Just a savage animal?
Real knowledge is not acquirable easily, it requires hard work. It is a procedure which involves observations to abstractions, generalizations and theories. On the other hand, daydreaming entail no endeavor. That is the reason why these modern pseudo-scientists quacks and theorists have attained the skill to arrive at the “end of physics” so hastily and easily.

And they make us believe that it is beautiful and peaceful, but at what price, at the price of our freedom, our individuality, our truth and our own existence. The indoctrination by society, culture, religion, traditions, collectivism denies us to examine and know ourselves and question the reason behind A being A. Yet, they teaches us that being under control, being disallowed to flourish freely on grounds of reason and abilities, on grounds of subsidies and quotas, reservation and taxation they are trying to make a better world. By removing all jungles and roping some bonsai, can they make the world beautiful?
