Mindspace - A scientific approach to metaphysics - Part 1

As I discussed in one of my older posts, Science tries to logically explain things that happen around us. Everyday thousands of scientists relentlessly try to explain the unexplained, using the language of mathematics.  All what we know today, evolved over a long period of time; after a long process or formulating, experimenting, validating and re-formulating. 

In earlier days, human civilization tried to explain every thing they see around through religion. Religious principles were primarily based on the belief that God is the creator, protector and destroyer of the universe.  Religion acted as the code of conduct for the society and people were basically guided by the fear of God. Earth was the center of universe and every happening in this world was attributed to an angel, spirit or a demon.

Why is it called "humane"?

I am sipping the morning tea and going through the daily news and all I am seeing is news about murder, abuse, torture, violence and terrorism. At least 80% of all news is related to these subjects. Some news are so horrible, you wonder how a human being can do such heinous crimes.  And then, ironically, an advertisement starts blinking on the screen. The ad read something like
  • “Help make world a better place. Donate to the Humane Society”
I felt good that there are few good people still left, but then a strange thought came to my mind.  I searched for the meaning of word “Humane”

God : Omnipotent or Malevolent?

 “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?” 
- Epicurus, 350 BC
Recently I saw a discussion going on the above quote from Epicurus. Sounded interesting. Let me share my thoughts on the same.
