rgsrini: I have to say that MMS government is not even making an attempt to explain the deal to BJP MMS had BJP's leaders, including Arun Shourie, over into his office and explained the salient points of the deal to them the moment it was signed. That was before the text was released. This is more t...

Reading this thread, it seems to me that this is not a religion thread because (a) it is only about Hinduism. Religion is a generic word for all religions. (b) Hinduism is not a religion - some participants here say. Since English language doesnt have a word to describe "dharma", therefore...

Re: Reasons for conversion. One affluent guy I know converted from an Indian religion to Christianity. The reason he gave was that he never got any answers from his elders when he had any difficult questions. People just told him to shut up. Therefore, while poverty etc. are important, it is also ve...

More questions. God has been around for billions of years. He(a generic pronoun instead of using he/she) created all of us. Then why did he let the situation slide to this level? Why is 70% of world poor and doesn't have enough food? Why did he create humans with a capacity for evil thought? Why do ...

Kumar, Good post even if I don't agree with all that you say. One of the Popes is reported to have remarked to a scientist that Science cannot prove or disprove the existence of God. How can you scientifically "disprove" a claim that a person's soul will go to heaven or hell when he she di...

India without Hinduism is not India. Its as simple as that. Hindu interests are national interests and national interests are Hindu interests. Can you put that in context of the only Christian-majority state of India? 1. Are Indian interests, by definition, inimical to it? 2. Can it not exist in a ...

Negi: I am not splitting semantics either. However, there is a difference between saying: - Human ancestors were monkeys and - present day humans and monkeys share the same ancestor. This common ancestor has been termed primate, not monkey. Your statement "human ancestors were monkeys" wou...

You have it wrong. I don't know whether Darwin said it but according to Theory of Evolution, present day monkeys and humans had the same ancestor in the distant past and not that our fourfathers[sic] were monkeys.

Guru Govind dou khadae, kakae lagoon paav I always thought this doha created a contradiction. First, the doha-creator (was it Kabir?) sought the services of a guru to meet God and when guru does get him a meeting with God, the bhagat says that guru is greater than God. Well if he is, why seek God i...
