I am an Indian, residing in Bengaluru and a retiree from government job of Indian labour law enforcement inspector for 23 years,
I have a passion for rationalism and humanism.
My purpose in blogging has two elements:(1) to outline the basic tenets of rationalism and humanism in my own way in this blog site and (2) to publish blog posts and guest posts in a niche(to be chosen) for monetization.
The great thinkers like Charvaka, Confucius, Lucretius, Epicurus, Spinoza, Karl Marx, Bertrand Russell, M.N.Roy, A.C.Grayling, Daniel Dennet and scientists like Copernicus, Galileo, Darwin, Einstein, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris have shown the road to rationalism, freedom, humanism, and, ultimately, the good life to be lived by human beings. To be free is to be rational.
To try to purge people of the centuries-old superstitious beliefs, bigotry, religious intolerance and hate and terrorist bloodbath, blind faith, miracle, and magic is the first element of my blogging purpose.
The spirit of rationality should pervade the human society and man should be the only centre of all human activities.
If some people become convinced of the soundness of the concepts of rationalism,, humanism, freedom and good life and subscribe to them, the first element of my purpose will be fulfilled.
I am planning to take immediate steps in the implementation of the second element of my blog purpose, that is, blog monetization.
