Outdoing Each Other In Stupidity

By Sumit Paul, New Age Islam 18 April 2023 In 2018, a year before the right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) stormed back to power for a second term, a federal education minister said he believed Indians were the descendants of Hindu “rishis” (sages) and not monkeys. Satya Pal Singh, who was the minister of state for human resource development, said Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution was “scientifically wrong." “It needs to change in the school and college curriculum. Since man has been seen on Earth, he has always been a man. Nobody saw an ape turning into a man,” he said. In 2019, while addressing the 106th Indian Science Congress, Nageswara Rao Gollapalli, vice chancellor of Andhra Pradesh University, claimed the Dashavatar gave a better theory of evolution than Darwin because it (the Theory of Dashavatar) 'scientifically' explains that humans evolved through the incarnations of Hindu god Vishnu! He urged that it should be taught not merely to Hindu students, but to all students of India. The whole world will benefit from the message of Dashavatar because it's not just mythology, but history. It must be mentioned in no uncertain terms that by 2022-2023, the topic of evolution was completely purged from school textbooks. Whichever religion it may be, one thing that remains unchanged and intact is human stupidity. Neighbouring Pakistan already did away with Darwin's Theory of Evolution as Islam, esp. the Qur'an, believes that Allah sent Adam and Eve down and we're their offspring! Many Muslim countries consider the Theory of Evolution to be outright blasphemous because it doesn't gel with Islam's desert beliefs of 1,400 years. What's most bizarre is the fact that there're 'educated' Muslims who believe that this is true and Darwin was wrong. When humans fail to understand the prehistoric symbolism of all religions and take every event and episode at literal level and ignore the obvious metaphors, ridiculous theories like Dashavatar and Adam and Eve as humans' earliest parents emerge as 'realities' in a collectively deluded domain of extreme religiosity. Remember, Hindus were religiously not so fanatic and backward as most of the Muslims have always been right from the inception of Islam. But as Einstein said, " Human stupidity is contagious, " Hindus post-2014 also started behaving like Muslims in terms of religion and belief. Hardly any Hindu would use the irritating term ' Sanatan' prior to 2014. In fact, barely any Hindu was aware of it. But a majority of asinine Muslims, right from the beginning, have been claiming that Islam is mankind's eternal faith and every infant is actually a Muslim irrespective of his or her later religion! What a universally sublime thought (ironically, of course). Now Hindus are doing the same. They're saying that every child, born any part of the world, is a Sanatani. When religion becomes so obvious and totalitarian, rationality goes abegging. We're outdoing each other in moronic behaviour. ----- Note: (A couple of facts taken from an article published on Al Jazeera.com) URL: https://newageislam.com/spiritual-meditations/hinduism-darwin-bjp-stupidity/d/129586 New Age Islam, Islam Online, Islamic Website, African Muslim News, Arab World News, South Asia News, Indian Muslim News, World Muslim News, Women in Islam, Islamic Feminism, Arab Women, Women In Arab, Islamophobia in America, Muslim Women in West, Islam Women and Feminism
