Why God Cannot Touch Devil!

Devil is vital to perceive God...Just like Sun emits Light, that makes us see things, Devil does evil, that helps us understand the difference between good and bad, and hence try to seek good (God).

Take Devil out of the equation, we would not know the difference, since there is nothing to compare with.

So, I believe, that without the Devil, God cannot exist, and It would be counter productive for God to destroy Devil. If he chose do that, then God becomes irrelevant in the people’s mind. So, Even though God is Omni potent, Out of political reasons, God cannot Destroy Devil. So Devil is Here to Stay!!

Why do men die first?

Got a Mail from some one. I liked it so, Posting it....Feb 20, 2008 at 9:28 AM

****** NOT MY ORIGINAL WORK ***** Author Unknown *****************

Why do men die first? This is a question that has gone unanswered for centuries, but, now we know. It requires a bit of explanation, first:

If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race ... you're a male chauvinist. If you stay home and do the housework ... you're a pansy. If you work hard ... there's never any time for her. If you don't work enough ... you're a good-for-nothing bum. If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay ... this is exploitation. If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay ... you should get off your lazy behind and find something better. If you get a promotion ahead of her ... that is favoritism. If she gets a job ahead of you ... its equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she looks ... its sexual harassment. If you keep quiet ... its male indifference. If you cry ... you're a wimp. If you don't ... you're an insensitive bastard. If you make a decision without consulting her ... you're a chauvinist.

If she makes a decision without consulting you, she's a liberated woman. If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy ... that's domination. If SHE asks you ... it's a favor. If you appreciate the female form and frilly underwear ... you're a pervert. If you don't ... you're gay.

If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape ... you're sexist. If you don't ... you're unromantic. If you try to keep yourself in shape ... you're vain. If you don't ... you're a slob. If you buy her flowers ... you're after something. If you don't ... you're not thoughtful. If you're proud of your achievements ... you're full of yourself. If you don't ... you're not ambitious. If she has a headache ... she's tired. If you have a headache ... you don't love her anymore. If you want it too often ... you're oversexed. If you don't ... there must be someone else.

Why do men die first? Because they want to.

The Philosophy of Golf

10 April 2008

You can learn to play Golf, No doubt. Have you ever thought what lessons you could learn from playing Golf ?
Golf is probably the most philosophical sport ever to be played by human beings in a long time. Consider this:
Golf is all about
  • Assess the conditions
  • Know the terrain you are on
  • Choose the best club that you could use for the conditions and play your shot with precision and control optimizing the swing, power required etc.
Once you played your shot
  • Assess the consequences of your shots
  • Assess the terrain you landed on
  • Choose the best club that you could choose for the conditions, and play your shot with precision and control optimizing the swing, and power required etc.

You keep doing this, and the end, you end up in a hole under the ground!

A Quote I Liked

One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar. - Helen Keller

Positve re-enforcement

Something I wrote a few months ago. Was too lazy to post. Now I discovered the way to publish via email. Here we go....


More often than not, we jump on an opportunity to make sure that our opinions are heard, particularly when we find that the action of the other person is not acceptable to us.


For example, a spouse doing something that is not up to our expectation, A child's behaviour that we do not approve of, A mothers comment/sentiment that we find silly, A sisters behaviour,  and so on.


How many times have we rewarded positive behaviour/action ? A tasty meal prepared by the wife, A smart but yet naughty thing done by the child, A thoughtful action by a friend/wife/colleague/child/mother/sister who ever it may be!


I realized the importance of it the day I first scolded my 14 months old toddler for fooling around with the TV plug point. There was a naked hurt and pain in his face, the look of his face I will never forget! I used a pretty harsh tone (intentionally, out of my fear that he might one day touch a live wire and hurt himself bad). 


He has been so naughty, that I realized that most of the time we end up telling him don’t do this, don’t do that. Started wondering, will there ever be a time when we will tell him, "Yes, that was a wonderful thing that you did, you should do more of it!"


Opportunity came in few days, He did something very nice, he climbed on to the sofa pretty much all by himself! So much effort went behind it. I was happy, and I told him he was such a good boy, and hugged him and kissed him. I could see he was as happy as he could be and quiet proud.


That was the moment, I realized the importance of positive re-enforcement of behaviour. A lot more could be achieved, if we make sure that we reward positive behaviour and at the same time make sure that the negative behaviour is not welcome!


There is a Tamil song, "Adikkira Kai Than Anaikkum" meaning "Only the hand that hits, will hug"


I want to add spin to that and say, "Adikka therintha kaiku, Anakkavum theriyanum", meaning, "The hand that knows to hit, should also know to hug".


My All time favorite Mail that goes around the Net!

Dr. Schambaugh, of the University of Oklahoma School of Chemical Engineering, Final Exam question for May of 1997. Dr. Schambaugh is known for asking questions such as, "why do airplanes fly?" on his final exams. His one and only final exam question in May 1997 for his Momentum, Heat and Mass Transfer II class was: "Is hell exothermic or endothermic? Support your answer with proof."

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:

"First, We postulate that if souls exist, then they must have some mass. If they do, then a mole of souls can also have a mass. So, at what rate are souls moving into hell and at what rate are souls leaving? I think we can safely assume that once a soul gets to hell, it will not leave.

Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for souls entering hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, then you will go to hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all people and souls go to hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in hell to increase exponentially.

Now, we look at the rate of change in volume in hell. Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in hell to stay the same, the ratio of the mass of souls and volume needs to stay constant. Two options exist:

1.      If hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter hell, then the temperature and pressure in hell will increase until all hell breaks loose.

2.      If hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until hell freezes over.

So which is it? If we accept the quote given to me by Theresa Manyan during Freshman year, "that it will be a cold night in hell before I sleep with you" and take into account the fact that I still have NOT succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then Option 2 cannot be true...Thus, hell is exothermic."

The student, Tim Graham, got the only A.
