The New Horizon

A new world explored with a rational view

Hi readers, this is Diganta (Digonto in Bengali pronounciation) Sarkar taking India to you. Let me introduce briefly and then I’ll go into details of why I started blogging.

I am Diganta, from Redmond (WA), USA. I belong to the Software generation of India, the generation often hated in the West and envied in the South Asia. Though I stay in Redmond, WA (USA) these days, I am born and brought up in a suburban town of Barddhaman (Burdwan) in West Bengal. My mother tongue is Bengali, the fourth highest spoken language in the world. I love the language though I have a love-hate relationship with West Bengal.

Besides India, I have a strong connection with Bangladesh. My father came to India at the time of Bangladesh freedom fight. My wife is still a Bangladeshi citizen. Hence, I will cover a lot of bilateral issues of India-Bangladesh in my blog.

The reason I started blogging is the amount of hatred I can see across the people in todays world. Every problem starts with a few bad person, and ends at generations of hatred, even among so-called good people. There are more specific problems, like misquoting, and misuse of statistics. Some people even start writing up statistics without even verifying the sources. One wrong writing generates wrong knowledge for each of the readers, and the error propagates!! I would try to rectify the statistics or information given in several newspapers and sites using some reliable and dependable sources.My focus will mainly be on India and her relationship with different countriesthough the priority will be our neighbors.

On religious side, I am a secular humanist. You will get a reflection of my thoughts in my blogs. Also, I am a die-hard sports lover. Hence, I hope to intervene my serious discussions with some lucid sports round-up.

Good bye, keep on reading.

  7. Previously, an article was written about “The Pending Marriage of Science and Genesis”.
    That, and the article even previous to that (The Divorce of Science From Humanism)
    were forerunners to this culmination. After more than fifteen years of rejections by other
    publishers, the revelation of the truth of Genesis will now be available for all to examine.

    The book promotes “Biblical Reality”, which states that Genesis, written by Moses, was
    never about Creation (Week). Moses had written down (perhaps by one or more
    designated scribes) what God had revealed to him while he was with God on Mt. Sinai in
    1598 BC. Creationism and theology have mistakenly believed that Moses was writing
    about how our Earth & universe were created, but not so. God revealed to Moses seven
    defined geological ages of the historical past to Moses. Even Moses didn’t understand
    what he saw, but he just had it written down for later generations to learn and perhaps
    someday understand. That final understanding would not occur until December 1993,
    being about 3,604 years later. How timeless is the Word of God?

    Unfortunately, creationism and theology have not done their homework, and continue to
    teach false doctrines, namely “young Earth” beliefs (Creation Science), theistic evolution
    (“Reasons to Believe”), long creation days (“Day-Age” theories), and Ruin & Restoration
    (“Gap” theories) doctrines. Every single one of them are in error, including “progressive
    creationism”, and are a misrepresentation of the Genesis text. The “Bible believing
    community” can either jump on board with the truth of Genesis, or stand on the sidelines,
    and continue promoting their own proven false teachings.

    However, there is another “front” that this book is doing battle against, which is the insanity of secular science concerning our origins and prehistoric history of our Earth and
    universe. Our creation occurred 4.57 billion years ago (according to the science of
    geology), completing in six days (Exodus 20:11), with God “resting” on the seventh day
    of a 168 hour week. But God did not reveal that week to Moses. God revealed only one
    day from Creation Week, and one day each from the first week of the six following
    geological ages of mankind. The seven days which were revealed to Moses (aka “the
    Observations of Moses”) were not revealed in chronological order, but in what’s called
    “Biblical Order”, which any theologian or “bible scholar” worth their salt should be able
    to ascertain. Here is where the current ignorance of mainstream theology will be made known for all to see.

    To preview what the book (“Moses Didn’t Write About Creation!!”) shall convey, go to:
    http://hometown.aol.com/ephraim7/myhomepage/index.html.
    There, it will keep you abreast of when the book will be available, and how to obtain a
    copy. In the book, the true “Origin of Satan” is revealed. Also, comprehensive coverage
    of the “Extra-Celestial Civil War” (aka “the war in Heaven”) is given, what brought it
    about, when it ended, and why Satan was allowed to do his evil deeds in this universe.

    It is a given that secular science shall at first criticize the work, calling it “a new attempt
    to harmonize science with religious literature”. Afterwards, they may try to call it “a
    convenient coincidence”. But what will the worlds of current creationism and theology
    do? Close ranks, “get on board” and accept the truth, or remain defiant and criticize from
    the sidelines, as the Sanhedrin did in 27 AD?

    Speaking of religious tolerance, I’d like to invite you to read my post on Akbar, and Cultural Synthesis.
