God, is he/she working for me!

Tried incorporating "it" in the above title but calling God "it" made me shudder, which made me realize that I am not agnostic but agnostic theist. Seems like having brought up in a typical Hindu environment has made me doubt, the doubt in existence of God, despite my logical opinion. The reason I am writing a blog on God is because I read this in user comment at Slashdot,

"Our concept of God is a entity that is inherently incapable of performing impressive actions. He might make impressive things, or be impressive to behold, but because his power is, by definition, unlimited, there can be no effort, or possibility of failure involved in his manipulations of the Universe. God creating a human being is no more impressive than a human picking a pebble off a beach; both are inherent skills that require no effort or risk of failure. But for a human being to create life, for a being of our meager abilities to succeed in reproducing, even in part, the awesome forces of nature and the cosmos... now that's impressive."

Although, above is true and full of arrogance, it reminds us of spoiled kids or in my case a pet dog. We bought him, fed him, took care of him when ill. Daily took him out for daily routine. Taught him to catch a ball. So now if he thinks that since he has limited brain activity so "him" catching the ball is more impressive then me taking care of him and decides to bark at me. Then I know its the time for my whip to come out and show my authority. I guess that God's whip is out, if we pay attention to recent natural disasters and bomb blasts.

Why, am I supporting the concept of God, simply put, recent blasts in Delhi have made me reconsider my point of view.

A day, country and intellectuals devoted to SB

Day starts with google reader, and when I find this quote "Of course Pakistan fighting terrorism is like a dog barking at its own tail, it’s not going to really do anything except bark." , more credible than the rest of the post by Bong, I move along to another post by Amit Varma, I get a thought in my head that now, even so called India libertarian are promoting SB.

I deliberately write it as SB so that you comic lovers ("self-lovers" inadvertently inclusive) will not be able get to it through this blog, nor will anyone searching for SB will land up on this blog.
"Not that anything is wrong with that" - Seinfield.

In last two days I have stumbled upon many famous Indian blogs, using SB as anecdote or comic relief or even for a whole post on it. Now I am confused, why, all of a sudden SB is getting so much attention. If it is to attract users who like SB and while searching for it may stumble upon their blogs. Even if that happens, will they stick to reading a-page-long-blog with no F words? Or rather in SB's case, no C word or T word or not even graphical support.

If it is to amuse their readers, well I will abide by it only if they weren't so blatantly promoting the SB website, making it almost a keyword.

It is necessary to mention here, that I have no qualms with Fly You Fool, as they make no false claims of morality or faith in humans. As they themselves claim "people are mindless cattle". I love their arrogant honesty.
But a little discretion doesn't hurt.

Well now going back to SB, I missed the last post.

Has LHC destroyed the Earth?

You will find the answer at this place.

If you are not able to find above funny this is not the place for you to pass your otherwise precious time.

Since we are alive (trust me on that if you are able to read this), I decided to start writing a blog, nothing creative, just a place to post the stuff that I read on various blogs and found interesting or repulsive. This blog is more for my collection, rather than for your appreciation, so if you find it boring or offensive, feel free to move along.
