When I published systematic deconstructions of 25 pseudoscientific claims about Hindu traditions, I felt I had overdone it. ‘I should’ve gone 5 or 10 at a time.’, I thought to myself. Yes, I did say that Hinduism is a goldmine and it wouldn’t be too long before more claims of that kind are made for me to refute, but one can never be too sure. Turns out my apprehension was for nothing. Hinduism has achieved the stature of being a self renewing source of bullshit.
The beauty of Hinduism is that its extremely hard to refute as even their followers don’t seem to agree upon a definition. Some call it a religion, some a way of life. The word ‘religion’ has recently acquired a lot of negative connotations to it, which is why you’ll find people rushing at the opportunity to shy away from that label. Of course, when it comes to being able to receive special favours from the government (reservation) and finding excuses to persecute people they hate, which is people from every other community, Hinduism becomes a religion again. It’s a matter of convenience really; they have an algorithm and everything.
One of the many things that make me different to everyone else, is that I take nothing for granted. I critically analyse everything. I question everything. I absolutely hate those who assert something as true which is not just scientifically unsound but logically fallacious. Their claims are always on my watch. One such claim is that of the existence of the soul and that’s about to get a thorough debunking.
