Bible – needs revision?

Though I don’t accept Bible as a holy scripture, I feel the time has come for its revision atleast…

When we write against incest relationships in discussion forums, they (those who like/support incest relationship) immediately give reference of incest relationships in Bible.

As per them, population increased, because the first family (Adam, Eve and their children) practiced incest. Why should Bible condone such incident and set precedent. There are also other references of incest like Noah family and Lot.
Its true that we don’t have a rosy picture of our sexual past, but the collective wisdom of generations be commended for creating a social order. When we look at the mushrooming of incest & other abnormal sexual groups in the social networking space, it’s alarming. The incest lovers take an easy escape route, pointing out the incidents quoted in the religious books.

Thus, as mentioned earlier, religion and its scriptures look more sinister than divine. As we move forward towards humanism/atheism, we need to discard or revise those, which are impediments, like the Bible.

Forced Change – towards abnormal behaviour !!

This is in continuation to one of my previous post on outside influence (forced) towards abnormal social change. I’ve no issues if these forced changes are for betterment. Unfortunately it is not so. Recently I came across an online poll “who’s the sexiest celebrity mom” in
Such polls give an opportunity to the opportunistic lot to exploit the fickle mind, which is already at its damaging low. I was browsing through few responses and some of them were shocking. There was one reader who wrote a sick comment (fortunately it was reported abuse and blocked) about mother and there were few equally sinister replies for the same. The screen shot of the same is given below:

When the social networking sites are already flooded with incest groups, is it not the responsibility of media to curb its spread than being a catalyst for forced social change (bad). Historical facts (and the behaviour of animal kingdom) may not give a rosy picture of our sexual past, but the collective wisdom of generations be commended for creating a social order. Parent-Child relationship is something, which can’t be taken to cheap levels for gaining publicity. There may be few aberrations, which can be discarded than highlighted.
Such polls, which prompt the human mind to assess a mother on sexual parameters, should not be encouraged. They (celebrity or otherwise) deserve a better treatment.
