“A life without questioning is not worth living for” – Socrates


Welcome to my blog site.

I hope to challenge without hurting, disagree without hating.  If .you are a religious fundamentalist , or a confirmed communist or a capitalist or a Nazi or a racist  or a male chauvanist (which are all the same – they all believe that they have found the final answer), sorry, you might find me wanting.

    2. The detail given by u about variation of magnetic feild around Mecca isn’t correct….how could u assign neutral points on earth’s surface assuming that they. changes afterwhile shortly……
    3.do you know the principle on which an oscillograph works…when u receives an information about cosmic radiation cross earth all your devices stop working at
    same times then how could u measure the rAdn coming from mecca for which u have no information and no device……stop questioning islam …the day u realise it ..u would certainly realise truth….time is still at disposal….

    Thank you, my friend Saadiq, for reading my blogs, and remembering an old one. You gave me the opening for the next blog,

    Hi Vishumenon,
    Just came accross your website. You seem to be a nice,logical,scientific, atheist kind of guy(if i am not mistaken). I believe I am not mistaken whats stopping you to accept Islam then?

    • vishumenon Says:

      Good question, Hashmi. I am not an atheist; I have so many logical reasons to believe that creation has to have an intelligence behind it. Yes, I try to apply logic, as much as I know it, to my line of thinking. Yes, too, I spend a lot of time trying to understand physical sciences. These are the very reasons why I do not accept Islam.

      I do not believe that the enormity of God can be limited to a hugely misused Arabic name Allah.
      I do not believe that God can be of such a closed mind that he would punish till eternity someone who says he does not understand God or that there may be other gods. God, I believe, would be far above such mean thoughts that can only occur to Man.
      The book does not convince me that God sends down an angel to tell his messenger that it is OK to marry the wife of his adopted son.
      I do not believe that holding up the sky without a pillar is a miracle of God. I know that it is an optical illusion.
      I do not believe that God would tell his messenger that he spread out the earth as a carpet and placed mountains on top of it like paper weights. I know that Earth is a spherical planet, and that mountains are some volcanic eruptions, others erupted out of tectonic clashes.
      I do not believe that sun rises from a muddy swamp in the East and sets on another muddy swamp in the West.
      I believe that a thousand lies and two hundred misinterpretations cannot make erroneous statements right. Zakir Naik quoted 29 verses to show that the Book mentions water cycle. None of them does. Each one of them only mentions a one-way traffic of water from the clouds to earth. So with all other ‘scientific’ interpretations.
      I have similar reasons for not being in any religion – not even the one into which I was born. That is why I am not an atheist, but irreligious.
      I hope I answered your question. Do not mind, you asked, and I answered.

      Let us all live by Sura 109 (Al-Kāfirūn) that I quoted in the blog.

  4. a logical guy Says:

    Hi Vishu,
    I am glad you understand Sura 109.
    So Iam hopefull and Allah willing you will understand the other verses also that right now you have doubt with.

  5. vishumenon Says:

    Sura 109 is for Kafirs. By definition, I am one. Thinking Kafirs remain that way because they understand the other verses as well. Your religion is an accident of your birth. I healed myself from my accident when I grew up.

  6. a logical guy Says:

    Many kafirs accepeted Islam because they understood better. because they ponder over the verses with an open mind.
    Since you believe in Allah(Al means the, lah derived from ilah meaning lord), You are not entirely a kafir and i do not understand why you say misused term.
    It just a matter of understanding.
    My religion is a mercy from my lord and I do not require any spiritual healing
    though ofcourse I require spiritual elevation.
    Your birth is also a mercy for you to ponder over your existence
    and ponder over who created all that exists. Since you believe God,
    don’t you also believe can God be so ignorant to let us put on earth without any purpose?
    Do you believe that supreme being would not let us know and guide our path towards eternal success?
    Had God been selfish, He would have commanded all of us including you to leave everything apart and just worship Him.
    But he set for us responsiblities, obligations. Obligations towards society and obligations towards God.
    This is the beauty of Islam. Unlike any other religion, It is only Islam which truely defines what is good for us
    and what is bad for us because Allah is so much merciful that he did not put us in vain by simply creating us.
    I mean think logically, There is set defined way of everything that exists. Everything is bound to follow one law or the other.
    So we human beings are also required to follow the law of the supreme being. How do we know that? The Quran is the answer.
