FORMER, the 50 something "childless" gay, is still trying to come to terms with his homosexuality. LOL.

Truth is not an absolute.

I don't know what is meant by an absolute in a universe of constant change.

The concept of truth keeps changing with the context - what is true in one context may not be true in another context.

A word salad.

Words like indivisible, absolute and permanence are misnomers.

The search for the fundamental building blocks of matter may go to still undreamed of levels - who knows unless you consider quarks and leptons to be the farthest we can get but even if they are fundamental building blocks then the question still remains - why are there 3 generations of quarks and leptons with differing mass scale?

So, maybe it's better to think of reality in terms of energy fields from which particle pairs pop out but then what about dark energy? How do we account for gravity and integrate it into the standard model?

So, perhaps the word "indivisible" could refer to the conservation law by which the sum total always remains fixed even in the vacuum state as per the Heisenberg uncertainty principle that permits such violations of the conservation principle involving the emergence of short lived particles for a very short time which as particle-anti particle pairs quickly annihilate themselves to recede into the vacuum energy (ground state energy) but the formation of the universe of matter, despite the constant annihilation between the two sets of particles, could have been the result of the difference in decay rate of matter and anti-matter with the latter having a much quicker decay rate thereby leaving behind more matter particles for the universe to form.....

Well, whatever....

I prefer the word "conserved" to "indivisible" in the context of providing an explanation for the perpetuation (or persistence) of the reality.

Dubai's Burj al Arab is the world's most luxurious hotel but in terms of heritage, class, style and service it is behind the Hotel Taj Mahal Palace and Tower in Mumbai.

Why do most people pronounce CONDOM as CON-DIM when the correct pronunciation of the word is CON-DOM with the suffix DOM pronounced as the DOM in DOMINO.

Sad. Millions of kids, who're abandoned/abused by parents or due to poverty, get pushed on to the streets where they take to prostitution and drug trafficking and drug addiction.

Often, poor parents in the Third World force their young kids, as young as 9 or 11, into prostitution. Sad.

Surprisingly, the famous gold souks in Arab nations usually sell 18 carat gold ornaments which is considered a poor man's choice back here in India where most people who buy gold invest in 23 carat gold jewelery or in 24 carat gold coins/bars.

Iranians are among the most intelligent people in the world. I've met quite a few Iranian students at IIT and have read a lot about their intellectual prowess especially in the fields of science and tech. Some of the top grad students at the best engineering and pure science universities in the US are Iranians and there are many top quality Iranian scientists and technologists who live in the western world. Iranians are highly intelligent but are repressed by religion and politics in Iran. Reports say that 70% or more Iranians are atheists. Yes, intelligent people are at heart non-believers and rightly so. Iran does very well at the IMO, IPhO and IChO. More more to the Iranians.

Germans, Japanese, South Koreans and Iranians have the intellectual capacity to be the world's leading powerhouses of knowledge. Germany and Japan have already proven their high intellectual worth and most likely figure among the top 3 most advanced nations but they may be reaching a plateau like most other highly developed nations in the world. I guess in the next 2 or 3 decades as Asia overtakes the West in human resources and with greater political changes in nations like Iran that could confer more independence on its people, well, South Korea and Iran could take their rightful place among the world's most intellectual nations. The average national IQ of South Korea at around 107 is the world's highest and a strong indicator of its superior potential, while the Iranian elite is extremely bright.

In his commentary on the Mishnah, Moses Maimonides formulated "13 principles of faith" two of which are the resurrection of the dead and the coming of the Jewish Messiah. Funny. Funny, indeed. In a future writeup, I'll be demolishing all his 13 principles of faiths.
