And We Say That An Ostrich Has An 'Ostrich Brain'

This is one of the rarest moments when I sincerely hope that this post may never be read by anyone, an extremely rare thing for a blogger like me to wish, for, otherwise I love the posts to entice comments- either in appreciation or in criticism. But what I will now write so frankly, so clearly with no names changed, is going to be so ruthlessly true that it will no doubt be offensive...
We as the Human Race have tagged the Ostriches to have the brain they do apparently because they cannot, at a dead end, defend themselves in the face of fear and choose to shut their eyes instead, but putting it very simply, I have never seen a stupider species than the Human race. Since the time Man has learnt to live, he has learnt to fight, most of the times unnecessarily and most of the times with weapons and intention whose power to destroy he did not fathom.In the illusion of protecting himself and his 'family' he has not 'defended' but 'attacked', he has, from the time he was an early man, fought with his neighbors over territory, over water, over each and every thing which was actually in abundance and would satisfy the needs of all, but was thought by the Ostrich brain of Human beings to be scarce. In due course of time however, the worse was yet to come. When it did not suffice for Man to fight and kill for the above things, he thought it inevitable to create a hype, a illusion, an occupation of the mind, a symbol so strong that it would keep Mankind engaged for generations together. Religion! The greatest institution ever created which on the name of 'God' threw million and millions of people into their graves, a power so powerful that the apparently developed brains of Human beings shrunk to ostrich brain size and they killed and slaughtered each other on one call from their leader who used their stupidity to flatter his own only to be killed long before he could return to his family. On the name of Allah, on the name of Christ, on the name of Krishna, on the name of Ram, on the name of Zoroaster, all that we as a race have done is bloody killed and gotten killed. We stupid set of Ostrich brains, this is all we have done! And no, I am not ONLY talking about the times of the crusades and jihads and the like where we fought like we-are-still-uncivilized-give us-time, I am also talking about TODAY. I think I have taken enough of the bird's eye view of the ages gone by, talking about the wars being fought today, it is too damn unfortunate to observe that we continue to remain the same set of uncivilized, ostrich brained souls who at a direction from our leaders are willing to kill and get killed over something neither we nor they, (especially they) 'really' care about- religion. Wtf actually, wars and wars and wars- someone wants to spread Christianity, some others want to spread Islam, some others want to spread Hinduism etc etc. what the hell do the want to spread by killing! All they do, all of the ostrich brained leaders and smaller brained followers is capture and in the process make sure they instill fear, not Godliness... But, this talk does not ensure or provide a solution t anything, except maybe discouraging getting oneself involved in a kill game. Is there a solution to the Afghan war, where thousands of civilians got killed in the bombing, the onset of which was not their fault, Is there a solution to the Iraq war were Human lives continue to be wasted with every passing day, and only tears flow in every family for no fault of the civilians or for that matter even the soldiers who have signed themselves up for the army and are by virtue of their duty forced to murder and and get killed in the process? Is there is solution to the Ayodhya Massacre where we continue to fight like a bunch of idiots while our leaders continue to hog the limelight in the media by the totally useless sacrifice of human lives? Is there a solution to the continuous terrorism in India and in Pak? We are getting killed, all of us, from all countries of the world, from all the religious backgrounds, at the direction of people in power, whether we like it or not. So, why does everyone need to die? Can't simple swift, neat assassinations of the leader, a particular leader wants to out be a better solution than everyone getting killed, especially those who want to have nothing to do the crap and wish to live on this otherwise beautiful creation...

  1. Don't worry. If you're tiring of wars about religion, we will see plenty of wars over resources in the future. Perhaps even wars over tasty ostriches. Thankfully, humans are capable of fighting about lots of things, not just religion. We fight almost as much as animals do in nature, although at least while we're doing it we stop and post blog entries about it periodically. Ostriches only bury their heads in the sand (and occasionally run smack into trees without paying attention).
