Scientism regards science as the only source of true and valid knowledge. This view undermines the knowledge of values, ethics and norms. It replaces objective morality with subjective morals which can be tweaked by a minority of individuals in a human society with no accountability to any objective code of ethics.
Image of Black Hole and What It Tells About Nature of Reality
For the first time, astronomers have captured an image of the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy, known as Sagittarius A. Is it necessary to believe in something only after we are able to physically observe it? Scientists like Prof. Stephen Hawking have accepted the fact that black holes exist even though this kind of a physical observation is possible only now. We, as humans cannot see an object which is just a mile away. Science had shown the vastness of observable universe. It will take trillions of years to get to the end of observable universe and we may still not get there as it is expanding at a faster rate.
Rational Response to Unobservable Claims
Human rationality is not confined to believing only in physically observable realities. Science would not tell us about the motive, will and morals definitively.
Recent Images of NASA and Reflections on Cosmos
Recently, NASA has released the earliest clear images of Cosmos in the history of universe. Even if we do not know anything about the Cosmos and how it runs, the fundamental questions about the meaning of our own lives stick in mind no matter whether the universe had and have whatsoever biological, chemical and physical propertie
Economic Lessons from Fasting in Ramadan
Fasting in the full-month of Ramadan every year teaches restraint by experiencing it. It brings humility, discipline, restraint, self-control and social consciousness about issues of hunger and deprivation. It is more powerful to share a state of being for the whole month in restraint than an hour of lighting out. It encourages solidarity and pro-social behaviour.
Implication of Greed in Resource Conservation
Money supply can be increased out of thin air, but the non-renewable resources once exhausted cannot be brought back. Remarkably, the importance of ecology is not learnt even after repeated unsuccessful expeditions in space to search life supporting environment. An illuminating, enlightening and informative book cannot be valued just by measuring the cost of pages, printing and binding.

Influence of Physics in Contemporary Mainstream Economics
Those scientists who believe in Scientism and hold that the experimental method is the only arbiter in all matters of life need to look no further than the field of economics where the tools and concepts of physics are applied. Even though science cannot be arbiter in morals, defining motives, public policy and politics, but it cannot even be a perfect and sufficient tool in explaining economic behaviour by taking the analogy of animal behaviour which is based on self-interest and survival instincts.
Reflections on the Origins in the Post COVID-19 World
Corona Virus has affected millions of people and killed hundreds and thousands of people already in more than 200 countries and territories of the world. Almost all routines of life have been affected. Our tremendous journey in scientific, technological, industrial and economic advances has come to a pause for a while in the last few months. As we ponder over origin of Corona Virus, it is high time to also reflect and think over origin of everything. This short book engages and invites readers to together seek answers from science, philosophy, and spirituality.
Origin of Corona Virus and Origin of Everything
In the Godless worldview, the battle of survival ends with destruction eventually for Corona Virus, bacteria, unicellular organisms, animals and humans the same way. Humans having consciousness and conscience may define their personal meaning of life by themselves as to how best to spend few million breaths under the sun in maximizing self-pleasure. But, the life ends without due justice for many people who are killed, robbed and discriminated against and it ends without due punishment for many people who cause these crimes. Some are lucky and some are unlucky in the mortal game of survival of the fittest.
