Elvis vs. Jesus. An unexpected result. The burger.

Scientists tried to measure who is more “popular” by using a pagerank algorithm for pages in the Internet related to various famous persons. (1) Jesus was 1st. Elvist was 69th. Descartes was 82nd.

For me, this is a highly disturbing result.

The more popular an idea, the less value it has. The ideas of Jesus were very UNpopular at his time, exactly because they were exceptional, wise and great in every aspect! But today we have a very distorted idea of what Jesus actually said. Not half of the people who like Jesus today would accept his ideas, if they knew how strict he was with certain things. (read the New Testament, do NOT take my word for it!)

The meat grinder processes everything hard and makes it easy to digest.
All great ideas are hard to accept.
All great ideas are unpopular.

Eating burgers is easy.
Eating burgers is popular.

Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
