There is a heated debate going on every where about LHC. On Day one of the experiment, doomsday experts freaked out and predicted that the world is going to end, fence sitters adopted a wait and see approach and organised religions went into a tizzy. I am against organised religion and rituals. I dont like to have people butting in and trying to teach me how to talk to my God. Besides, I am not entirely sure that God doesnt have his/her own agenda, and we dont feature to high on his To Do list. This belief settled in when I was in Class III and had to take a Geography test. There were some fill-in-the blanks to do, and the question was:
Nile flows through _________
and Chump that I am, I filled in Italy. I was a big fan of the Roman Empire and Pizza I guess. Well I prayed, was a good girl and even helped my mother in the house. But no amount of bending over backwards got that answer to change. My mother gave me hell when the test papers got marked and had to be signed. Was I angry or what? Now in retrospect, I feel that God has plenty of fish to fry and one little girl’s butt ranks way down on the heavenly agenda.
If the LHC proves succesful, I wonder if religions of this world will experience a whole lot of debunking? My fear is that it won’t. Religion will just transform, backpedal and adjust itself to the new situation. The sad truth is that religion never dies, much like any other virus. We will still have bigots who will be instrumental in causing a lot of death and misery, all in the name of God
