It doesn't appear that we are able to get past the "torn shirt open fly" stage Not really we are still waiting for the evangelical answers to what differentiates their religious edicts from a cult. There may well be no validity to the Hindu religious experience as you have suggested. The ...

So guys, go ahead with yer little discussion here, but I want you to know it was the evangelicals who were at the forefront of the fight against slavery in Britain and in the US. So, no, they're not going to give up on the Dalits or the tribals anytime soon Yep just show them newsreels of Hurricane...

But historical records of hatred & mayhem point completely to the other side! I would think that any devil worth its salt would not like to tolerate true divinity being worshipped anywhere.

So what gives? Which side is truly demoniac here?

Do you suppose that a place of worship in the US would be able to deny entry to people on the basis of race, gender, or religion? With all due respect, do you know what it is you are talking about? Please travel the US south. If your eye is keen, you will observe their churchs come in two flavours-...

WOW Thanks for those numismatic images, Arun S. I had these peculiar coins which I somehow lost. I have after decades identified them as MUGHAL (insert icon for exhultant).

All religions have features of cults-to promote group cohesion, to establish certain patterns of thought. However what defines a cult and deferentiates it from religion needs to be explored for I believe it will be fruitful. There would be two fundamental features of cults viz. recruitment (of new m...

Sargant spells out and illustrates the basic techniques used by evangelists, psychiatrists, and brain-washers to disperse the patterns of belief and behavior already established in the minds of their hearers, and to substitute new patterns for them.


A classic-must read for all.

India would be better off pursuing more fruitful paths of indigenous development

And you sir would be better off pursuing your apparent specialty of djinn power or is it gin power.

Besides India wandering down blind alleys should make Pakistan a little safer so why the solicitousness?

I do hope he did not say that-it would be in poor taste and only serves to dignify Pakis and their claim on Islam. Of course the Indian Muslim may not be amused at this gratuitous invocation either.

India was known to brag that they knew about the Kunduz airlift 2001/2002 in real time ie they were monitoring Afghanistan air activity. LR radar is nothing new.

Er-- solar radiation may generate spurious signals in ICs that cause mistracking, misfiring. Yes I will have to give Schrodingers cat another look to add to the laundry list :wink:

Good that people are looking at kill probabilities less naively-there is one more angle. The P is not independent. That is, in an intercalated war-fighting system the Pk is dependent on the SAME upstream systems eg the rocket fuel batch, the electronics quality control, the meteorological and solar ...

I am sorry but you are making as much sense defending your remarks as a first term grad student but there is always the potential. The issue is of designing something which has as high a theoretical Pk as possible, its obvous that it has to be backed up by realworld tests to proof that capability. I...

I would thin -the reference to lines of code is from DRDO not me, it is essentially meaningless so why would they feel the need to reveal that nugget. Pk in simulations is wonderful but it's presumably realworld Pk that you want to know when firing the drdo assault rifle in a firefight. Again so mea...

What is '3 million lines of code'?

A current video game may have 500,000-1 million lines of code.


98.8 % kill p, really? 2 Ghauris get in for 1000 fired- let's get real-life. the global lauch failure rate is higher and that is not even the rate-limiting step for a ballistic missile intercept.
