  • A comment on Talk: Raghava KK: My 5 lives as an artist

    Apr 28 2012: One of the most awe-inspiring talks I've seen on TED to date.

    My sincere thanks and gratitude to Raghava for shedding light on not just the beauty of art but also on it's importance in our everyday lives and our innate humanity as a whole.

    Feb 19 2012: No Life Guard, please don't give us that crap about what constitutes real Judaism and Christian followers, we've heard it before over and over.

    Incidentally, you haven't mentioned anything about the third Abrahamic religion: Islam, I wonder why?

    Feb 19 2012: Not really, he's seems to have taken great stride on portraying every atheist on earth as lunatics and religious people as nice, happy animals.

    Feb 19 2012: Dear Alain, after doing a very good job of portraying atheists as being idiotic, narrow-minded. Why not have the decency to acknowledge the bigotry and hypocrisy that stem primarily from religious doctrine?

    Once again, we non-believers have to put up with the audacity of political correctness and yet those who impose their ignorance and bigotry (religion) through law and coercion, go unaccounted for.

    I should point out that perhaps it would have also been prudent if you mentioned that even religious people stand to gain from learning a thing or two from atheists.

    Feb 19 2012: Except he was too busy being a fancy populist for doing the usual slobbering by portraying every atheist on earth as idiotic whereas snidely avoiding any mention of the hideously twisted logic, audacious arrogance, bigotry and hypocrisy of religion.

    Oh no atheists are just always wrong, even when they are put to death on some countries, for simply being atheists. This man should also give a talk about Religion 2.0!

    A comment on Talk: Alain de Botton: Atheism 2.0

    Jan 22 2012: He made a interesting points although they're not new to me cause there's something called humanism which encompasses most of the things he mentioned.

    Although i did find some of his arguments a bit condescending because he took the stance that atheists are the ones who stand to gain and learn from religion whereas reality shows that the scenario is the other way round cause religions don't teach their followers to think critically or question principles which for the larger part aren't questioned without the questioner facing harsh persecution.

    I was very disappointed but not surprised that he took the typical apologetic stance by not being fully honest in pointing out the the flawed concept of blind-faith as well as the bigotry,hypocrisies, double standards that are encouraged, incited and justified by a religion's doctrine as well as the unfounded claims.

    I dare TED to invite Salman Rushie to talk and argue about the same issue! :-)
