Many thanks for the reblog, very much appreciated and great to know people are enjoying the read. Although, unfortunately, there are many examples throughout history where religious beliefs have directly opposed scientific endeavour; the case of Galileo and the Pope, for example.

But this post wasn’t written to evoke that discussion, but instead ensure that the facts of science are presented in the face of the supernatural belief that the celestial bodies can affect our behaviour; which they can’t!

Thanks again; looking forward to reading some of your writing in the future!

I thank you very much for visiting my blog; also for your comments.

I am of the view that there is no contradiction in Nature- Work of God- that corrects science; and a revealed Religion-Word of God- that depends on the Revelation from the one true creator God.
Coming to your other points:

1. Galileo’s persecution by the Pope was unjust. The pope or his associate clergy do not represent the truthful religion. Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Socrates and Muhammad did not oppose any scientific endeavour or persecute any scientist. The above persons were the direct recipients of Revelation.

The acts of the clergy are wrongs done by man against man and it is sinful and deplorable. It is just like the secular rulers who do wrongs sometimes or often.

2. If a human word spoken can effect changes in the world; then I think Word of God could do much.
If for example, words spoken by the Head of State of America can make changes in the world; Word of the creator God could do much more.

Friendly discussion is always welcome.

Thanks again and regards

Congratulating Pope Francis

March 14, 2013

I would like to congratulate the Catholics for having their Pope as their new religious leader.

I think leading a majority denomination on the Religion side he should seize the opportunity to play a role for uniting religion on truth through an open dialogue.

Religion should be cleared from mythical creeds, irrational dogmas and superstition to salvage humanity from its existing ethical, moral and spiritual throes.

‘The Choosing Of A Pope’ Cardinals Conclave Live

March 13, 2013

Paarsurrey says:

Can a pope resign? If so under what authority? Please

Ramani's blog

Now the process of selecting Pope by a Conclave of Cardinals(115 in number this time) to select a successor to Pope  Benedict XV who resigned.

The Conclave is  in progress and  watch Live the Conclave.

Here’s a summary of today’s events.

• Some 115 cardinals have begun their conclave to choose the next pope. A puff of black smoke from the chimney above the Sistine Chapel this evening signalled that the cardinals had not yet come to a decision. They will now retire to the isolation of St Martha’s House, within the Vatican walls, and reconvene tomorrow morning at 8.30am GMT for more deliberations. They are expected to choose a new pope within the next couple of days.

• The favourite remains CardinalAngelo Scola of Milan, with Cardinal Odilo Pedro Scherer in second place. But in truth no figure goes into the conclave with the kind of strong prospects Cardinal…

Should the next pope be a mystic? – Timothy Shriver says he should

March 9, 2013

Paarsurrey says:

 

I don’t see any harm if the new pope is a mystic.
How is it provocative, by the way?

Soul Needs - One Garden

Timothy Shriver has written a fascinating, and no doubt provocative, piece in the Washington Post in which he argues that the next pope should be a mystic.

Some of his main points are in this extract;

There’s no need to rehash the recent disastrous track record of the all-male Roman Catholic hierarchy. The sordid abuse of children by priests, the sinister coverups, the callous treatment of nuns, the deaf ear turned toward Catholics who happen to be gay or divorced — it’s all on the front page. The Catholic Church is hemorrhaging moral authority.

What’s much more devastating is that it is losing believers, too. If you can’t trust the messengers, why trust the message? It is not too much to say that the crisis in the church is contributing to a crisis of faith in the Gospel itself.

This is a crisis not of management nor of theology. This…

“Paul did not invent Christianity: Pope”, refuted

December 8, 2008

I today sent a post to refute “Paul did not invent Christianity”: Pope
Published: September 26, 2008.courtesy: http://www.cathnews.com/article.aspx?aeid=9201#hys

Hi

I don’t agree with the Pope’s explanation for reasons.

1. How many of the twelve did Paul meet? He did not meet them.

2. Peter was only eulogized by Paul for a purpose; to gain a little credence, which was not there.
Peter was not a rock to build a church upon. He was among the first who defected Jesus and melted like anything; he was not loyal to Jesus. Paul chose him as a natural collaborator, in my opinion.

3. Paul did trade the concepts of Jesus, with mythical creeds of the pagans, all in Jesus name.

4. Paul did not meet Mary- the Mother, not even once. If Jesus had disappeared from Galilee at least she would be there.

In my opinion, Paul must have smelled that Jesus, Mary and all of the loyal disciples of Jesus were missing from Judea; they were heading towards India.

Paul an enemy of Jesus and his friends changed his strategy. He used Jesus name and invented a creed which had nothing to do with Jesus. Paul invented a theological philosophy using Jesus as a scapegoat – which was based on “Jesus dieing a cursed death on Cross”, a mythological faith.

Thanks
