National science day.

C.V.Raman

Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science. ~Edwin Powell Hubble, The Nature of Science, 1954

Today is the National Science Day. It is on this day, to celebrate the C.V.Raman’s discovery of Raman Effect in the year 1928. After two years he was awarded Nobel prize for physics.

On this day let us try to put an end to all pseudo science, cargo cult science and other crap that exist. Two incident from today tell that we are still living in dark ages. It was surprise to see that it is extremely difficult for a rational person to argue that the movie The Secret is just plain crap. The guy who featured in the movie says that it is science and it is known by the name PshycoNeuroImmuninology now what ever that may mean. He was supposed to be completely cured of cancer, just visualizing it being cured. I haven’t seen the movie, but two minute trailer tells me that it is all dud. By the way the secret costs as little as $25. They price it low, that people do not think twice before falling into their trap. It is small amount any way.

The second incident is about the spam mail, that I received today,this mail is about the deadly spider called Telamonia dimidiata. You can see about the chain mail here. You find all about other spams at http://www.breakthechain.org/

What is really surprising people are not thinking logically, they do not want to think. One can verify almost anything via Google. Why don’t use Google to stop spam, if you just received a mail that looks like spam, search for it Google, before you hit those forward button. It takes less that 0.000003 second for Google to tell you that you have been spammed!

Take a oath to lead more rational life from today. That is what India and the World needs now.

    Gp, we need to fight the ignorance that the people have, by the way it is pretty difficult do that in the place. In the meantime the business men will have field time conning the people

    a great call brother. We can live with a much civilized world who understand real science. But business man can sell anything and everything. We must be vigilant against these leeches and the cure the suckers who fall prey. Someone must be there to light the path.
