We need morality first than Religions! (Must Read / See)

PROPEL STEPS

I can simply put it this way, when we cannot follow what morals our god or our religions want us to follow! Why we need religion alone? We need to be moral first before being religious in any path we prefer.

Please read the transcript or watch this video.. He makes more sense!

Well, religion is an interesting topic because religion is universal. All human societies believe in the supernatural. All human societies have a religion one way or another. Which for the biologists must mean that religion has some advantages — offers some advantages to a society. Otherwise we wouldn’t have that strong tendency to develop it. And so for me that’s actually a far more interesting question of whether God exists or doesn’t exist. That sort of question I cannot answer. But the question of why we have religions is an interesting question. And my view is that…

While it is as easy as a coin drop to hear bad news, little acts of kindness are rarely documented and blasted on the news. More the pity, because we get only one side of the picture, and those little heroes of every day life, that truly believe they are in a society and act that way, are lost in the ever flowing stream of scare news.

Quasimodo’s Replacement

(Here’s something that you most likely would not have learned at school.)

(However, it is the Victor Hugo postscript to The Hunchback of Notre Dame that, until now, was never published.)

1After Quasimodo’s death, the bishop of the Cathedral of Notre Dame sent word through the streets of Paris that a new bell ringer was needed.

The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and went up into the belfry to begin the screening process.

After observing several applicants demonstrate their skills, he had decided to call it a day. Just then, an armless man approached him and announced that he was there to apply for the bell ringer’s job.

The bishop was incredulous. ‘You have no arms,’ he said.

‘No matter,’ said the man. ‘Observe!’

And he began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful melody on the carillon.

The bishop listened in astonishment; convinced he had finally found a replacement for Quasimodo.

But suddenly, as he rushed forward to strike the bell, the armless man tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the street below.

The stunned bishop rushed down two hundred and ninety five church steps, when he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure, drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only a moment before.

As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked, ‘Bishop, who was this man?’.

‘I don’t know his name,’ the bishop sadly replied…

‘ …………….. BUT HIS FACE RINGS A BELL’

WAIT ! WAIT ! There’s more…

The following day, despite the sadness that weighed heavily on his heart due to the unfortunate death of the armless campanologist, the bishop continued his interviews for the bell ringer of Notre Dame.

The first man to approach him said, ‘Your Excellency, I am the brother of the poor armless wretch that fell to his death from this very belfry yesterday. I pray that you honour his life by allowing me to replace him in this duty.’

The bishop agreed to give the man an audition, and, as the armless man’s brother stooped to pick up a mallet to strike the first bell, he groaned, clutched at his chest, twirled around, and died on the spot.

Two monks, hearing the bishop’s cries of grief at this second tragedy, rushed up the stairs to his side.

‘What has happened? Who is this man?’ the first monk asked breathlessly.

‘I don’t know his name,’ sighed the distraught bishop, ‘but…’
