The sore thumb....

I am opinions personified - i wonder if there is anything that i dont have an opinion about. Being a self-proclaimed atheist, sceptic, misomundist, misanthropist(on and off), misogregist, misophilist, misogaboorist, and miso-anthaksharist among others, i wonder if i can be any other way...

Having said that i fervently hope that by my holding opinions about things doesnt amount to being opinionated or dogmatic, for i hate opinionated people ;)

Was wondering why am i such a social mess? - why is it that when people see the beauty of a sunset, i only see (1/lambda^4)-dispersion of light; why is it that i look at the sky, i feel belittled and important at the same time -belitted by my very insignificance and important because of my part in the teleological cosmic drama; why is it that when people see a flower, i wonder how does it look in the ultraviolet spectrum; why is it that in a song, i listen to that violin piece that nobody bothers to listen or appreciate; why is it that where others reacted with horror on seeing the berg guy being beheaded, i reacted with indifference, saying if you can behead a goat on tv, you can behead a human; why is that when people are happy with a great psychological support by their belief in god and fate, that i should try it the hard way; why is it that when people are blissfully ignorant of their own mediocrity, that i should be aware of my own; why is it that ... well chuck it..

i guess at some point of time you have to accept yourself for what you are; and dammit, i am happy the way i am...

Sensing a common thread of failed love story turned to sour grapes atheism...Maams, u need agony-aunt badly!

Ishwar said...

Ambar - nothing turned sour... was just thinking aloud...

Ishwar said...

And, my turning to atheism was too far back in history - when i was in 8th or 9th. this is not the common thread.

Son of a bitch.....death to teleology.

By the way, I am hugely dissapointed at the lack of progress in the past 2 years in ur abilities....worsta.....

Ishwar,
I was an atheist at age 10, it seems as foolish to me as theism right now.

I don't understand. Do you want to say all thiests are not hardworkers and only athiests are hardworkers. If so, then you are under a very wrong impression. Every thiest believes that God helps only those who are sincere, honest in their efforts. You would have heard the phrase God helps those who help themselves. So please change your mindset about thiests.

I'm not sure if I'm alone in seeing a lot of pretense and hasty generalisations in this post.
