Uncertain Religion Sentiments

819dglWh+hL._SL1500_

All holy books say that only God possesses the power to destroy this planet but now mankind does too as he has figured out nuclear weapons and to pollute at a catastrophic level. Religion is treacherous because it allows human beings who don’t have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it’s wonderful when someone says, “I’m willing, Lord! I’ll do whatever you want me to do!” Except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corrupt imaginations, limitations and agendas.

Cerne Abbas Giant is a hill figure in Dorset, England. Made by a cut outline filled with chalk on the slope, it is a picture of a giant naked man, the origin and age of the picture is unclear and often thought of as an ancient structure. Scholars identify it with a Celtic British figure or the Roman Hercules. The villages don’t know the story behind this giant picture but maintain it anyway and they live in uncertainty or doubt regarding the whole giant man tale.

The big questions about, after life, end of the earth or mankind existence should be left as a doubt because doubt is humble, as the villagers do in the case of giant man in England. I say doubt is the attitude man should have about certain question and not letting religious people keep us in lunacy and fantasy. All the rational people, anti-religionists must assert themselves. Moderately religious really need to look in the mirror and realize that the solace and comfort that religion brings to you actually come at a terrible price, the price of freedom.

Paradise on Earth – Lake District (U.K)


“Lake District is paradise on earth,

It’s like I believe in God but spell it as Nature” 

As I was going through some old pictures of family and friends yesterday, I stumbled upon some nature pictures of Lake District. In an instant I went into a blissful mood, the pictures were taken by me when I went to Lake District in England (U.K.). I have discovered a new way of meditation and the natural beauty so mesmerizing just by seeing the pictures your mood will be filled with joy.

Just a little background on Lake District, it is the mountainous region in North-West England which is mainly famous for its mountains, lakes and its association with the famous romantic poet William Wordsworth. Lake District is the Britain’s greenest and finest countryside, having England’s largest lake called Windermere. Windermere is a ribbon lake as it was formed by two glaciers Troutbeck valley and Fairfield Horseshoe. When the glaciers melted the lake was formed. Another lake in this district which serves as a tourist attraction is called Buttermere which has the best walking country in Lakeland as there is a footpath running round the lake.

The scenic region of Lake District which is in Cumbria and Lancashire will certainly cast its spell on anyone who visits this region and I can vouch that after visiting Lake District you will become a nature person. Just to give you guys a glimpse of this paradise on earth I have also appended the pictures of this scenic place.

Buttermere, Windermere and South Lakeland

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

There is society, where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

I love not man the less, but Nature more”

― George Gordon Byron
