The Trap of One Thing

For past few weeks I’ve been involved in a debate in one internet discussion forum. The subject is, “Why do people believe in God?”. Since, I am a believer, I thought, let’s join in. Let’s see what happens. So, I presented my reasons in a simple manner. Starting from the cosmological argument, then to the intelligibility of the universe, then history and finally my own experience. However, since I entered the discussion, it has really heated up. However, what I get asked for a LOT is the scientific evidence of God’s existence. Now, as I see it, the phrase “Scientific […]

Internet, information and biases

Warning: This is a radioactive braindump. Reading further might hurt your brain. Now that’s aside, I’d like to talk about one of the things that I’m biased about. I’m biased about biases. My bias is, everyone is biased. And, there are right biases, wrong biases and ugly biases. So the first question that comes into my mind is, what the heck does these terms mean? I’m going to assume that everyone knows what is bias. If you don’t, then go and look it up in the dictionary. Any definition I provide here, will most probably be, biased. However, nobody knows […]

If God knew man will fall, why did he create us?

Today, in the ICPF cell group, there was one question raised that I had already dealt with in my mind. But haven’t documented the answer anywhere. Writing helps me refine my thoughts and give a structure to what is otherwise, like a maze. A maze only I can solve. Because I created it. And nobody can look at it, because it’s inside my mind. However, since I haven’t documented the answer, the answer to this little question was like a maze in my mind, and when this question was raised, I did answer it, however, wasn’t able to answer with […]

Ideas are Bulletproof

But also elusive. I have been thinking of writing to this blog more often, but I also want to write those things in awesome way! And these two intentions of mine, contradict each other. If I write things in awesome way, it takes a lot of time for refinement and finding the right words. So, I tend to post less often. However, the problem is, I have ideas in my head popping up everyday and now I have list of different ideas to write about. In that list, there are about 15-20 items… Then, there are some ideas which have […]

Super-duper charged Gnus with Gwene!

You might have read my previous post about Yahoo! pipes. However, they weren’t working out as I thought they would. Gnus was still taking up a lot of time to start up. So, I thought, there must be some other way to boost the start up time. I looked around and tried to find out what other people were using. After reading this transcript a couple of days ago, and reading curious little mention of Gwene, I decided to check it out this on Saturday. And so I did. There were a few RSS feeds that I wanted to get […]

Word of God

In a recent ICPF cell group, I was given a chance to give a message. I thought for a while on the subject and thought about what I should speak. After some thoughts, I decided on the topic of “Word of God”. What is it, and why should we study it. Then I thought, now that I have compiled this, it might be useful to someone somewhere if I put it on the internets! So, here it goes: Food Hebrews 5:12-14 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic […]
