Spreading pseudo-science , promoting ignorance and misbelief
Fight of Indian society has always been to _make people aware_ , *or* to _make them rationalists_, *or* to urge them to think *scientifically* and *logically*.
Strangely, it continues to be difficult to for the ordinary people to *make difference* between the *science* and the *pseudo-science* .
Given below is a set of certain whatsapp based message which in the name of *science* , is caught spreading the *pseudo-science*.
The counter-arguments on why these are not truly *science* but *pseudo-science* is founded in the *inferential* and the *deductive reasoning* which would follow if these were science, is recorded below each of it.
"Scientific Reasons Behind These Popular Indian Traditions.
The world recognizes and appreciates India for its traditions. There are various prominent features that we people possess that makes us Hindustani. If you go from state to state, you will witness a change in language, attire, and beliefs. These variations have been passed to us from generations to generations and are deeply rooted in our daily way of living.
For instance, what is the first thing you do when you see your elders passing by? You would obviously join your hands, wish them namaste or touch their feet. Right?
But have you ever wondered why are these things important? Why a bride applies Mehendi during her marriage or why are there bells in a temple? What are the reasons behind these traditions?
Well, if you don't know, need not to worry because this is what we will be talking about today, the *scientific reasons* behind all such traditions that we follow. C'mon, let's have a look.
(🤔 *Scientific reasons or pseudo-science* 🤔🤔🤔,
#1. Wearing bangles
According to the sources, bangles used by ladies are usually in the wrist part of one's hand, and its consistent friction builds the blood flow level. Moreover, the power going out through the outer skin is again returned to one's own body. Since the ring-formed bangles have no closings to pass the energy outside, hence all the energy is send it back to the body.
( 🤔 *Then, why only females, even males and kids should wear bangles* 😜😀😀)
#2. Idolatry or Murti Puja
As indicated by the sources, focusing on a specific photograph or a picture can really settle your brain. Additionally, the sort of mental pictures one sees or imagines help in forming the working of the brain. Visualisation will just help in building a solid association while the energy of your psyche will help with holding the same.
(🤔🤔 *Then the Buddhists and Japanese zen people who pray by hard meditation and concentration by keeping their eyes closed technique, should become mad for having lost focus due to not watching over idol or a picture 😜😀😀* )
According to the Speaking Tree's article, Sindoor is prepared using mercury, turmeric, and lime. Mercury acts as a catalyst that helps ease stress while keeping the brain active and alert. Mercury also helps in controlling blood pressure, activating sexual drive and libidinal energy.
(🤔🤔🤔 *I have read that Mercury causes immense brain damage and attack the nerve system as well*
*By the way isn't this Speaking Tree more into spreading* _pseudo-science_ *under the mask of* _Science_.
*Time to think what is this newspaper column truly doing to our society 😜🤔🤔* )
#4. Charan Sparsh
Touching the feet encourages the flow of energy and when elders touch the head of the person in blessing, energy is again exchanged between them. This exchange of energy gives one vigor, self-confidence and contentment, one experiences an inner glow. The blessings received after Charan Sparsh are like invisible armor as it motivates and gives strength.
(🤔🤔 *I guess even the elders should do charan sparsh of the younger people. Why only the other way round* 😜😀😀)
We Indians believe in fasting on several occasions. In a long run, we accumulate a lot of toxins in our body. But it is fasting that relaxes our body mechanism and cleanses the body by detoxifying it. Even the digestive system gets to rest during fasting which leads to the cleaning process.
(🤔🤔 *How about the so-called non-salted food that the religion driven fasting people keep eating in between. And by the way, did you not see whatsapp video of a man giving long list of receipe for the closing of fasting during navratri* 😜😀😀)
#6. Throwing coins into a river
As indicated by the sources, tossing coins in the rivers was one way our ancestors guaranteed we allow adequate copper which is a fundamental metal and is exceptionally helpful to the human body as a feature of the water as rivers were the main providers of drinking water. Making it a custom ensured that all of us follow the practice.
(🤔🤔 *What's garbaging and land pollution, then* 🤔)
(🤔🤔 *And who is this " _according to sources_" , the originator of this eternal bull shi_t* 😜😀)
According to the sources, science believes that joining the two hands guarantees to join the tips of the fingers together; which are denoted to the pressure points of eyes, ears, and mind. Squeezing them together is said to enact the pressure which helps us remember that individual for quite a while.
(🤔🤔 *Do people from other countries suffer from forgetfulness ? Or that The Indians never catch Alzheimer's in their old age 🤔🤔*
( *Continued* ...)
#8. Toe rings
A specific nerve from the second toe connects the uterus and goes to the heart. According to the sources, wearing toe ring on the finger strengthens the uterus. Rings keep uterus sound by directing the bloodstream to it, and the menstrual cycle gets regular. As silver is a decent conductor, it additionally assimilates polar energies from the earth and passes it to the body.
(🤔🤔 *Health of uterus 😻 I would know that even the kings and the male royals of olden times wore rings for adorning themselves😲. And BTW how is the health of uterus of the women from other countries & religion looked after 🤔😜😀😀. BTW, then silver rings pass energy from Body to Earth, or from the Earth to Body* 😲🤔)
( 🤔🤓 *BTW,Hindus have a lobby of bullshi_tters within their religion who make profits by spreading such stuff, that too in the mask of Science)*
According to *Speaking Tree,*(🤔🤔 *oh, so this is the source tres of this sh_t stuff*) a tilak is accepted to prevent the loss of 'energy', the red 'kumkum' between the eyebrows is said to hold energy in the human body and control the different levels of concentration. While applying kumkum the features on the mid-forehead area and Ajna Chakra (third-eye chakra) are consequently squeezed. This additionally encourages the blood supply to the face muscles.
(🤔🤔 *Energy stuff !! Newton and Professor HC Verma will be given a beating from this theory, I bet)* 😲
#10. Sikha or Choti on male head
Sushrut Rishi, the foremost pioneer of Ayurveda, described the master sensitive spot on the head as Adhipati Marma, where there is a nexus of all nerves. The Sikha protects this spot. Below, in the brain, occurs the Brahmarandhra, where the sushumnã (nerve) arrives from the lower part of the body.
( *Did u know that Even today the modern biology have failed to learn about such a spot under the back part of the brain* 😲😜😀)
#11. Not sleeping with your head pointing north.
According to the sources, when we sleep with head towards north, our body's magnetic field become completely asymmetrical to the Earth's Magnetic field. This causes problems related to blood pressure as our heart works harder in order to overcome this asymmetry of Magnetic fields. Moreover, when we sleep in this position, iron from the whole body starts to congregate in the brain which can cause various severe diseases.
( *So, can we back-tamper the magnetic field of earth if all of humanity slept facing north together 🤔🤔. And I wonder how success is the CT Scan technology which doesn't know that human body's magnetic field is affected from the Earth magnetic field so hugely 🤔🤔)*
#12. Applying Mehendi
Mehendi is known as a powerful herb. According to the sources, application of mehndi can prevent too much stress because it cools the body and keeps the nerves from becoming tense. This is the reason why mehndi is applied on the hands and feet.
( *Well, then apply it everywhere and all the time, by all the people. We Indian people are as it is very quarrelsome, btw . Maybe , Mehandi is the right solution🤔)*
#13. Surya Namaskar
According to the sources, it was essentially on the grounds that looking at sunbeams through water or specifically at that time is useful for eyes. Furthermore, by getting up at this time of the morning, we wind up being prone to a morning way of life as mornings are the best part of the day.
( *So much we do , but only for the eyes 🤔🤔. And then , as if, the cheating idea says that actually it is done so to catch up with the morning lifestyle 🤔.*
*_what a smart man !!_* 😜😀😀)
#14. Ear piercing
The Indian girls have their ears pierced at a very young age as the skin is very delicate and it is less painful. The Indian philosophy says that ear piercing helps in intellect development. It increases the thinking power and also decision-making abilities.
(🤔 *Then why only the women need this intellect increasing technique. Let indian males and the whole world enjoy it* 😜😀)
#15. No meat on particular days
The reason is that as a human being we need only a little amount of meat to fulfill the requirements of our body such as iron, Vitamin B12, and other vital nutrients. Addiction of meat can cause diseases like piles, kidney stones, colon cancer, etc.
(🤔 *So, what if we change Tuesday by Sunday for the non-meat eating day . Even that should work out the effects of this pseudo-logic for us, isn't it ? 😜😀😀)*
#16. Bells in the temple
According to *Agama Sastra* ( *someone tell me where this book is lying* 😲🤓🤓), the bell is used to give sound for keeping evil forces away ( *oh this book is the Power Ranger formula book, as it keeps the "evil forces away" 🤓😜* ).
However, the scientific reason behind bells is that their ring clears our mind and helps us stay sharp and keep our full concentration on _devotional purpose_.
(🤔 *what a great objective !🤓🤓)*
That's all, folks. I hope you liked the story.
(🤓 *better keep the bell ringing even in your sleep room, and the wash room too, to help you clean your stomach as well 😜😀)*
