Shhh…don’t tell Deepak

You may vaguely recall that Deepak Chopra claimed the results from the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) labs supported his religious ideas. In a very timely bit of news, Jeffrey Shallit reports that PEAR is closing after 27 years of embarrassing futility. About time.

    Unrelated in a sense, but did you discuss with Dawkins that exceedingly stupid anthem “God Save the Queen”, asking a superstition to preserve an anachronism? Has Dawkins publicly asked that the song be abolished?

    A Guru in Disgrace, a poem
    .
    GOD IS HIS EQUAL
    .
    the guru preaches
    his distorted
    views of the world,
    including God,
    to everyone.

    the ones with
    lesser intelligence
    buy whatever he
    sells.

    but the ones even with
    some commonsense
    don’t tolerate his
    nonsense.

    they ask him questions.
    he answers to no one
    but keeps on preaching
    further his nonsense.

    He only talks with God —
    his equal — 3 hours a
    day in deep meditation.

    and always shows his
    bitterness exposing further his
    foolishness to people like
    Myers and Dawkins.

    Where Does God Come From? a poem
    .
    CHILHOOD STORIES AND MEMORIES
    .
    the fundamental problem
    with the fundies like
    the dingbat followers
    of a dingbat guru is:

    they have firmly made
    up their minds from
    childhood stories and
    memories that God is.

    like enchanting stories
    of Savitri, Ramana and Yama,
    Lord Krishna and his women,
    Lord Shiva and Parvati, his beloved.

    like Jesus, Joseph and Mary
    and her immaculate conception.
    and Jesus, God and the holy ghost
    living somewhere in the heaven.

    so no matter what Dawkins says,
    Hawkins says or Myers says,
    their brains are open to none,
    or perhaps they’ve no brains.
