Israeli Offensive in Gaza

Reactions to Israel's Gaza Offensive (Dec 2008)

Since the egyptian brokered peace treaty expired on December 19th 2008, Hamas (the authority in Gaza strip, their legally elected government and a militant organization) resumed firing rockets into Israel. Israel, United States and the West Bank palestinian governments as well as a few world leaders called on renewed peace talks between Israel and Hamas and for Hamas to cease firing rockets into Israel. Hamas declined to discuss peace offers and decided to continue firing. On December 27th 2008, Israeli Defense forces launched major air strikes into Gaza strip to cripple and to damage Hamas infastructure. The operations are set to continue "for weeks to come" according to the Israeli defense minister.

About 320 Palestinians have died since the start of the operation, the UN says. Four Israelis have been killed by rockets from Gaza (these figures are latest figures published on December 30th 2008). However, massive infastructural damage has been inflcted on Gaza strip from Arial bombardment and on Israeli soil from numberous rocket attacks (close to 200-400 rockets a day).

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called for an immediate ceasefire and condemned both Israel and Hamas. While recognising Israel's right to defend itself from militant rocket attacks, Mr Ban condemned its "excessive use of force". The United States and other world leaders called for "peace talks" and ceasefires but refrained from condeming Israel. Arab leaders were quick to condem Israel and began to take various diplomatic steps to isolate Israel.

According to White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe, "In order for the violence to stop, Hamas must stop firing rockets into Israel and agree to respect a sustainable and durable ceasefire." President Bush has been quiet on the issue but everyone understands he supports Israel while Condolessa Rice wants to put more pressure on Israel to control itself and for Hamas to stop its attacks. Incoming President Barack Obama said "If somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I'm going to do everything in my power to stop that, And I would expect Israelis to do the same thing."

Israel's defender minister Ehud Barak says Israel will be engaged with Hamas to the "bitter end." Israel's ground forces have been mobilized along the border and reserve units have been called into active duty - leading to the speculation that Israel will lead a ground invasion following the airstrikes. Meanwhile, the UN has been relatively quiet and most of the world's attentions are diverted to India and Pakistani tensions and the holidays.

In my opinion, Israel should quickly use this time to dismantle as many Hamas infastructure as possible. If civilian casualites are kept low (hard to do since Hamas uses human shields), Israel should be able to follow its operations without much hinderance. So far the media worldwide have voice concern over civlian deaths but has supported Israel's right to defend itself.

Website Reviews

Website reviews: TheBreastCancerSite.com

The website TheBreastcancersite.com was created on August 18th of 2000 to address and raise awareness about Breast Cancer. According to the website page information, the site began in October of 2000 to help offer free mammograms to women in need women for whom early detection would not otherwise be possible.

Breast cancer is a growing epidemic among women and it arouses much fear because we all know someone who had it or someone who died from it. Each year, 211,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. Thus the website engages the users in simple activities that are constructive and tends to raise funds and awareness for the research and solution of this issue.


With a simple, daily click of the pink button at The Breast Cancer Site, visitors help provide mammograms to those in need. Visitors pay nothing. Mammograms are paid for by the site's sponsors and distributed by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. The website also has a store where all items purchased helps pay for a free mammograms for women.

The website is registered by a man named Gregory Hesterberg, the man behind charityusa.com This organization is called the "Greater Good Network" because it is a family of online activism sites that harness the power of the Internet to help people, animals, and causes in need.

Today their interests have sparked a varied interest in online activism and involvement in community projects. As enthusiastic supporters of The Hunger Site, they realized the power of providing busy Internet users with a fast, free and easy way to make a difference and launched EcologyFund.com to give people the means to support wilderness preservation efforts worldwide. They are particularly excited about The Breast Cancer Site, as both are sons of breast cancer survivors.

Ikariam Review

Game Review: Ikariam.org

Ikariam is a online browser game featuring a world with thousands of other real players. One begins the game with a single town on an Island and must make buildings, troops and alliances to advance in the game. Ikariam began as a small game offered by a German company(Gameforge Productions GmbH) and has now spread around the world with over 12 different international servers. Ikariam enjoys a growing audience and is great for a complicated online multiplayer real-time empire building game. Of course, the game can be played for free and is much much better than Travian online.

In the game, you spawn with a small level 1 city on an Island. The neat feature of this game is that every player starts on an Island with specific resources. The resources in the game are Building Material, Wine, Marble, Crystal Glass and Sulfur. Each island has 1 building material and 1 random resource (such as wine or marble or crystal or sulfur). As your city grows and you build and expand your buildings, you can assign workers to exploit those resources for the glory of your empire. When big enough, you can move onto other Islands to start gathering resources there and expand your empire further.

The game's updates and news are integrated into the game via the "advisers." Every time something happens in your empire or some news-worthy event occurs, your advisers send you a notification. When you start the game, you will find that these advisers will be very crucial to stay up to-date on all the events in your empire. Overall the game offers some great gaming experience, advanced browser game features, complicated alliance systems and some great house of time-killing fun.

The game itself is fairly new. It was created on July 8th 2007 and the sad fact is that much of the game is still in beta version with numerous glitches and patches being fixed and applied to the game. The good news is that the game provides a forum for members to request help, report bugs or glitches and take care of in-game issues and the moderators are really fast and very customer friendly.

But for those wondering how to contact the game creators or a mod (if you were banned from the forums), i want to say that i have the solution to your problem. The man behind the game is called Klaas Kersting and his address is:

Albert-Nestler-Str. 8
Karlsruhe, DE 76131

You may also call the company headquarters at +49.7213548080 or fax them your hate-mail at +49.721354808152. But your best bet lies with contacting them through email and the best email is tech@gameforge.de however customers and players are urged to email to info@gameforge.de

Anyway, Ikariam was a good game still and it can improve a bit more. It is currently in its beta stage with growing users turning to that game - most of those users from another German game called Travian. My recommendation is for you to try the game and see if you like it but be warned that this game can consume alot of your time especially if you get involved in alliances and wars. If you do not like browser games, then go out and buy a real game for your PC or your game console.

No Bail Out deal needed

WHY we don’t like the bailout.

It’s not about executive pay, or golden parachutes.

It’s not about keeping families in their homes. Most of us are making timely payments.

It’s not about having “taxpayers” (read - the Federal Government) see a return on their “investment”.

It’s not about oversight.

It’s about forcibly taking money from everyone else, and dumping it on those who have proven themselves to be terrible stewards of it. But more than that, it’s about the Constitution. You just can’t take public funds like this for the benefit of private companies. (Well, you’re not supposed to anyway.) It’s about personal responsibility and the free market. It’s about still having the possibilities of success and failure in our society.

It’s about nothing less than our way of life. In our way of life, if someone doesn’t pay their mortgage, they get foreclosed on. Then housing prices come down to reality and more homes they CAN afford become available. In our way of life, if banks take risks that don’t pan out, they fail, and another bank that is doing a good job buys their assets, hires their employees, and makes profitable use of them. That is how a society thrives, and why bankruptcy and foreclosure need to happen sometimes. Because in the end, the good guys can win.

Yes, we need change, but the change we need is to get rid of the perverse government incentives for banks to make those bad decisions in the first place. But all we hear about is band-aids, symptoms, and bedtime stories about how this will fix everything.

It won’t and it comes down to this: You can save the banks that are failing, or you can save the dollar. But you can’t save both.

America, the World, and George W. Bush

The irony, one of many, was that Bush came to office hoping to pare down U.S. global pretensions. Foreign policy realism was in vogue. When asked in the presidential debates what principles should guide U.S. foreign policy, the Democratic nominee, Al Gore, said it was "a question of values." Bush said it was a question of "what's in the best interests of the United States." Gore said the United States, the world's "natural leader," had to "have a sense of mission" and give other peoples the "blueprint that will help them be like us more." Bush said the United States should not "go around the world and say this is the way it's got to be," that this was "one way for us to end up being viewed as the ugly American."

Obama ad goes to war with abortion survivor

Obama's commercial predictably takes shots at the GOP campaign, calling McCain's ads "the sleaziest ever, truly vile." But when the screen shows clips of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and the ad she made asking Obama to reverse his stance on born alive infant protection legislation, the Obama ad calls Jessen's appeal "a despicable lie."The attack on Jessen has angered pro-life advocates."It is despicable, repulsive and beneath contempt that Barack Obama would attack Gianna Jessen," says Jill Stanek, a pro-life columnist who testified before Congress in support of the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act, in a statement on Jessen's website. "She is a courageous abortion survivor and living miracle who would not be with us today if Obama's policies had been in place when she was born."Jessen herself released a statement saying, "Mr. Obama is clearly blinded by political ambition given his attack on me this week. All I asked of him was to do the right thing: support medical care and protection for babies who survive abortion – as I did."

I disagree with folks regarding the point that Hinduism is supposedly more Pro-Science than Xtianity !
I've been to India & Sri Lanka and even stayed there for 4 years studying various schools of Hinduism, Vedantic Philosophy, Sanathana Dharma and the gita. From my observations and educated Scientific research ( I'm a research Engineer, ME, MTech ..I also did a 6 months research experience at MIT- Boston...thanks to that..I could get my green card easily !) Anyway, coming back to the point. You really don't need a rocket Scientist ( btw I was never impressed by Carl Sagan's Scientific calibre !) to figure out that Hinduism is wack ! With the lousiest emperical concepts about the Cosmos and physical nature. How can anyone accept Hinduism as pro-science, when the very concept of Maya ( Its all an Illusion BS) is a paradoxical oxymoron to that very concept. This implies that throughout history the Vedic Pseudo-intellectual nutroots have always used inferior sub-standard NOMINAL Data with a non-directional hypothesis ( worse than a 1 tailed Non parametric T-test) the errors in the Veda and Gita is a classical Type 1 error, P<= 0.10....making P> Alpha. Hence we could term it as a Level 5 Scientific rigor based on research design.
Conclusion : Hinduism fails miserably in explaining the very engineering of Physical nature & it's properties - Therefore it is Anti-Science. If anyone says otherwise...they're ONLY kidding themselves !
Ok with the exception of a handful of really good Mathematicians like Aryabhatta, Bhimbasara, Bhaskara and Ramanujan ( 1710)..no other Indian Mathematician is worth talking about. Btw, those few Hindu Mathematicians cannot be compared even 0.001% to the calibre of genuine geniuses such as Christian Newton, Blaise Pascal, Lebnitz or the Jewish Albert Einstein !
Therefore, Hinduism is one of the most Anti-Science ( even though most Hindu brahmins would lie to u straight on the face...bragging quite the opposite)

Christianity despite the anti Christian bias in the media has always been quite Pro-Science. If you see the work of Christian clergies including many of the Popes...you'd notice that they contributed >87% of the Scientific & research data we have today in the Modern Scientific & technological world !
It was Christian thinkers who brought out the laws of Empherical observation, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Technology & Research etc.

Here are some few names :

Guttenberg - German Catholic Monk ( the pioneer of the printing press and modern Media and publishing)

Fr. ( DR) Gregor Johann Mendel ; The Father of Modern Genetics.

St Francis of Assissi ( spiritual role Model)

St. Ignatius Loyola ( Founder of the Jesuit order world wide and owners of the most elite scholls worldwide)

Leonardo Da Vinci ( Catholic versatile genius, artist, thinker, mathematician and anatomist)

Sir Isaac Newton - probably the greatest Mathematician and Scientist of the Millenium and all time, noted Christian and Anglican who Mathematically proved the Existence of God !

Rene Discartes, France, “Father of Modern Mathematics”, pioneer of calculus ( later done by Gotterfried lebnitz), inventor of analytical Geometry, cartesian coordinate system, Mechanical analysis etc. Catholic Philosopher and disciple of St. Augustine. A prominent Catholic genius.

Nicholas Copernicus ( Astronomer) and devout Catholic church clergyman. Also gave the first Heliocentric model of the Universe, solar system and solar studies.

William Turner - “Father of Botany” and Welsh Church clergyman.

John Napier, inventor of Logarithms and Scottish protestant Christian pioneer.

Johannes Kepler, Catholic Philosopher and pioneer of the famous “Keplers laws of Planetry motion”, Sun, etc.

Galileo Galelei, Catholic Physicist and student of St. Augustine’s views on the universe. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest Physicists of all time.

Blaise Pascal, Protestant Janessist thinker and Mathematician.

John Wallis, Calvanist Christian Pastor and one of the most pioneering Mathematicians in Cryptography.

Gotterfried Lebnitz, the inventor of Calculus ( along with Sir Newton), also pioneer of Quantum Mechanics, invariants, Series etc. One of the most gifted German born Mathematicians of all time. He was a Lutheran Christian who later converted to a Catholic and was a staunch Catholic for the rest of his life !

Carlos Linnaeus, “father of Modern Taxonomy”, Sweden. He was a staunch Bible Scholar too.

Joseph Preistly, England, “The inventor of Oxygen”. He was a Noted Protestant theologian too.

Olinthus Gregory - Catholic Mathematician & the pioneer of the famous ( what the whole world follows) 365 day 24 hour clock “Gregorian calender” i.e. the modern day “time period” and our 365 day / 12 month Calender.

Michael Faraday, A Glasite Church Elder, Physicist and pioneer of Electricity !

Charles Babbage - “father of the Modern Computer”, England. Noted Anglican Christian personality.

Adam Sedgewick - one of the founders of Modern Geology. Anglican priest.

Orson Pratt - pionner of Cubic and Biquadratic equations. Christian Priest.

Philippe Henry Gosse - “Father of Marine Zoology”, noted Christian fundamentalist.

Lord Kelvin - who along with Pierre Duhem, France, Catholic theologian and Physicist pioneered- Thermodynamics, noted Christian thinker, UK.

Fr.Georges LeMaitre - Catholic priest who first proposed the “Big Bang theory” of the Universe. One of the top 4 Founding Fathers of Modern Astro-Physics !

Dr.Francis Collins,(current)- Director of US National Genome & Genetics research Institute, a Christian theologian and Scientist ( an ex-Athiest converted into Christianity based on expert research & conviction that Christianity is the most parallel religion to Science & Evolution)

Here's the link ( Christian Thinkers in Science) :


( Mid you the list comprises of ONLY the most devout Xtians and not Atheists and others).

Also, the Roman Catholic Church , quite unlike the negative stereotype, is in fact the Most Pro-Science/Research Religious organization alive today. Do you know that the Vatican has it's OWN Prestigious World class Academy of Science whose members include the most famous Noble Laureates in History including Galileo, Max Planick - Father of Quantum Mechanics etc. Apart from that The Vatican also has some of the biggest and high quality Space Telescopes & observatories in the world ( one of which exists in Arizona ). Go thru my references

Yes....the church DID have a brief history of repressing intellectual freedom, also true - that the church did some seriously stupid things such as corruption, making weirdly idiotic rules and versions of Physical nature (" the Earth is flat" BS) ..BUT, what the media never ever states is that the Church DID make enormous progressive changes...in other words, the Catholic Church & Christiandom in general EVOLVED for the better....Hinduism like Islam in comparison has always remain devolved / unchanged for the past 5000 years ! Hence Hindus are plagued with the most complex problems even today...there is so much misery, poverty, filth & strife ( more than anyother place, unless you exclude some African nations).

Thus, anyone with a shred of logic can decipher that Judeo-Christianity in reality far surpasses anyother organized religion ( including or especially Hinduism) when it comes to matters of the intellect & logic !


NORWAY - World’s highest Standard of life.

Norway, also has the world’s Highest per capita income & is Europe’s wealthiest nation. The citizens of Norway were recently voted as among the happiest, healthiest, & strongest people on Earth !
It’s a perfect example of a liberal adavanced European society which is STILL MAJORITY CHRISTIAN ( 92.4% of Norweigns are Christians, 2006 census).

Religion in Norway (2006 population census):

Church of Norway (Lutheran Christian) 88%;

Pentecostal Christian 1%;
Roman Catholic 1%;
Other Christian 2.4%;

Muslim 1.8%;

Athiests, 8.1 %.

( Ref: US Dept.of State - Bureau of European & Eurasian Affairs, April 2008 )



This gives mounting evidence that only a Christian society is capable for progress in just about every sphere - whether it is Standard of Life, Health care, Science & technology, Standard of education and Freedom ( liberty - where everyone regardeless of sex,ethnicity, race and religion are treated in fairness & equality) !

Now if you were to compare a majority Christian nation like Norway, Finland, USA, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Germany etc with a Non Christian nation such as Sudan, Somalia, India, North Korea, China and other 5th rate, 3rd world infernal cesspools filled with poverty,dirt, disease, hunger,illetracy, ignorance, under development, corruption, and oppression - once can easily deduce the alarming difference !


The Ugly Reality of Hinduism.

The inherent racism of historic Hinduism is thus blatant. You were judged by the color of your skin, not the content of your character, skills or talents. The darker your skin, the lower your caste and rank in Hindu society. The whiter your skin, the higher your caste and rank. The Brahmins prided themselves on their white skin while despising the darker skinned untouchables who were often viewed and treated as sub-humans.

This explains why Hindu gurus are more than willing to travel to the West to convert rich white Europeans to Hinduism BUT never travel to black Africa to make converts. The truth is, they don’t want black people whose skin color is an indication of bad karma. As long as they can sucker rich white people into giving them money (”Money is evil. So give it all to me ? .” why bother with darker skinned people?

This can be documented by the statements of many of the gurus who have reaped riches in the West. When one guru was asked on TV what he was doing to help the poor, he responded, “Let the Christians take care of them. I am here to help the rich.”

The Caste System

The terrible caste system was invented in order to protect the white Brahmins from polluting their sacred whiteness with black blood. You had to marry and to labor in the caste into which you were born. The lines were clearly drawn and on one was allowed to move from one caste to another by marriage or trade.

The mechanism of the caste system is tied to the Hindu theory of soul-transmigration in which your rebirth determines your caste. Your rebirth was predetermined by your karma. Your karma was in turn was determined by how you lived in your past life. For example, if you were born with a dark skin to untouchable parents, your life of misery and poverty is your punishment for being evil in your previous life. In other words, you are getting what you deserved.

The poor, the sick, the disabled, the dark-skinned, etc. are what they are because of their own fault. The deserve their suffering because they did something bad in a previous life and their karma has caught up with them. We should not interfere with their suffering because if we do, we will doom them to experience it in the next life. Thus the kindest thing to do is to let them alone so they get their suffering over and hopefully have a better rebirth the next time around.

On the other hand, if you were born with white skin to Brahmin parents, your life of wealth and pleasure is your reward for good deeds done in your previous life. You deserve to be rich and white. You earned it. Thus you have no moral obligation to help those less fortunate them you.

The social inequities of Hinduism ultimately led millions of lower caste Indians to abandon Hinduism for Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism or Christianity because those religions did not lock them into a rigid caste system. Social and financial mobility required a change of religion. Of course, if you were a rich white Brahmin, why would you convert to a religion which would strip you of your social status and wealth?

Social Evils of the degraded Hinduism.

Being originally fire worshippers, Hinduism developed the grisly practice of burning a widow alive on the funeral pyre of her husband (suttee). If she did not willing jump into the fire, she was often thrown into it by the mob gathered to watch her burn to death.

Child sacrifices to animal gods such as sacred crocodiles were common until this Hindu practice was criminalized by the British. The ritual murder and burial of travelers by the Kali cult (the thugees) is another example of Hinduism’s inherently demonic nature and inspiration.

Other immoral practices of Hinduism included using children as sex slaves in Hindu temples. They not only served the sexual perversions of the priests and gurus but were used as prostitutes to bring in money. The poorest of the poor who often could not afford to keep a new child, left the baby in a temple assuming that the child would have a better life with the priests than with its parents. They doomed their child to a life of pain and misery.

The tourist who travels to India’s many temples is often shocked by wall art that depicts sodomy, child sex, orgies and bestiality of the grossest kind. Yet, all this is part of what lies at the core of Hinduism.

The same shock is received when tourists see Hindus drinking urine from animals and humans and smearing dung in their hair and on their body. The smell that emanates from the gurus, monks and holy men of Hinduism is enough to warn us that Hinduism is rotten to the core. .

Why are we beginning our discussion of Hinduism with such ugly topics as racism, the caste system, burning of widows, ritual child abuse and gross immorality? To see the true nature of Hinduism we must study what it produces in those societies where it is the dominant religion. Thus a mere abstract philosophic presentation of Hinduism in the classroom will give a false view of it. Hinduism is far more than a list of abstract dogmas. It is actually a social program that seeks to organize a culture according to Hindu concepts of soul-transmigration, karma, race and caste.

The Philosophic Failures of Hinduism

1. Hinduism denies the existence of the infinite/personal triune God of the Bible who exists independent of and apart from the universe which He created out of nothing. It is atheistic in this sense.

2. Hinduism never solved the problem of the One and Many or the infinite/personal dichotomy.

3. Those Hindus who emphasize the One over the Many, teach Monism (All is One) and pantheism (All is God), erasing any distinction between Creator and creation. “God” is an impersonal infinite force or power which manifest itself as the universe around us. The “things” we see around us do not really exist per se. They are only illusions of the One. This is what the high caste Hindus teach the Westerners who come to India in search of “enlightenment.”

4. The vast majority of Hindus do not follow the Brahmin doctrine of monism. Instead of emphasizing the One over the Many, they emphasize the Many over the One and practice the most vile forms of polytheism imaginable in which they worship millions of gods and goddesses. It is said that the Hindus worship more gods and goddesses than the total number of Hindus who exist today. They worship snakes, monkeys, elephants, crocodiles, cats, insects and other absurdities.

5. As a world view, Hinduism fails to answer crucial questions:

a. Why does the Universe exist as opposed to not existing? Since it cannot answer this question, Hinduism simply denies the existence of the world around us. It is an illusion (maya) or dream.

b. Is the universe eternal or did it have a beginning? Hinduism has always taught that the universe is eternal. But this has been successfully refuted by modern science. This also exposes an inherent contradiction within Hinduism. If the universe does not exist but is illusionary in nature, how then is it eternal? How can Hinduism speak of the universe going through eternal cycles if the universe does not exist?

c. Why does the Universe exist in such a form that predictability and science are possible? By denying the existence of the world around it, Hinduism did not develop science and cannot exist why it works.

d. What is evil? Once again, since Hinduism could not answer this question, it simply denied that evil existed.

e. Why does evil exist? Hinduism cannot answer this question.

f. What is man? Hinduism denies that we actually exist.

g. How can we explain the uniqueness of man? Hinduism cannot explain why man is distinct from the world around him.

h. Why do we do evil? Hinduism cannot answer this question.

i. What is sin? Because it does not have a concept of a personal/infinite Creator, Hinduism has no concept of “sin” per se.

j. How do we obtain forgiveness for our sins? There is no forgiveness in Hinduism. You will have to suffer in the next life for the evil you do in this present life. This answer exposes an inescapable contradiction within Hindu philosophy. If the universe, evil, and man do not actually exist but are only illusions (Maya), then on what grounds does karma exist? If it does not actually exist either, then on what grounds does reincarnation happen?

k. On what basis can we explain man’s desire for meaning, significance, justice, morals, truth and beauty? Hinduism has no answer to these questions.

l. How can we provide a sufficient basis for meaning, significance, justice, morals, truth and beauty? Hinduism cannot provide a philosophic basis for any of these things.


Hinduism cannot answer the essential philosophic questions that always arise wherever and whenever the human intellect matures. It has been weighed in the scales of truth and have been found lacking.

Even more importantly, Hinduism has no concept of a Creator God, the Creation, the Fall of man into sin and guilt, a Day of Judgment, atonement or forgiveness, or a Savior who redeems us from our sins by the sacrifice of Himself in our place.

It did not produce democracy, science or equality among different races and racks of mankind. Instead it produced great social evils which afflict the Indian people to this day. As a religion and a philosophy, Hinduism is a complete failure and cannot provide a basis for meaning, significance, justice, morals, truth and beauty.

Also another shocking aspect of how perverted & illogical Hinduism is :


Lord Brahma, Visnu & Siva rape Anasuya and are cursed. This is also an origin of the holy Shiv linga as Siva is cursed to be worshipped as the linga (phallus):

“One day the sage Atri was performing tapas with his wife Anasuya. Brahma, Visnu, and Siva came and offered him a boon, but Atri remained silent, meditating. Then the three gods went to Anasuya. Siva had his linga in his hand, Visnu was full of erotic feeling, and Brahma was beside himself with desire, saying to Anasuya,’Make love with me or I will die.’ When she heard this coarse speech, Anasuya made no reply, for, although she feared the anger of the gods, she was true to her husband. But they were overcome with delusion, and they raped her by force. Then she became angry and she cursed Siva to be worshipped as a linga, Brahma to be worshipped in the form of a head, and Visnu to be worshipped as feet, in order to ridicule them all, and she cursed them all to be reborn as her sons. Because of this, Siva was reborn as Durvasas.” — Bhavisya Purana 3:4:17:67-78


More first hand proof that anything to do with Hinduism ( like the weirdest most vile disgusting thing you will see below) causes Irreversible Neurological Brain Atrophy (degeneration) !




Why Hinduism is the most stupid religion in the world ?












As the saying goes - Never believe a Hindu brahmin and his Vedic nonsense BS !


India - The Rape Capital of the world !

The Next time some Hindu monkey tries to sell you his/her BS about how Indian Hindus are som morally and spiritually superior. Kindly show him/her this vital fact ! INDIA / NEW DELHI ( FILLED WITH HINDUS ) AS THE RAPE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD ! Therein lies the destructive legacy of the corrupted, lower IQ, beastial Hindu brahmins !


India - The HIV+ AIDS capital of the world !

India - the Murder Capital of the world !


Now allow that to sink in friends, this is the kind of sh*t these Hindus follow. And these Brahmin wankers who composed such twisted illogical, immoral garbage have the audacity to criticise Christians ! Maybe those Christian missionaries are only doing these Hindu savages a favor by introducing them to a true logical civilzed culture ! Little wonder, why billions of brainless ugly, little dark skinned Hindus are dying to enter the Christian west ! Even they realize how fcuked-up their “Hindu” sh*thole land really is !
