    Sir,

    I have one request Sir. Sir, I am looking for the 1947-2011 data vis-a-vis the Indian States’ GDP, Literacy rates, Inflation, Birth/Death rates etc. Requesting you to kindly suggest where can I get this data from, please.

    Thanks.

    Sincere regards,
    Stuti.

      The GDP rates should be findable through one of the links I’ve provided in the articles. As for the birth and death rates, it is probably dismal, because India is poor and corrupt. But this is an article on India’s economy, not it’s languages and health, which can easily be learned about through a search engine like Google. I already strayed by mentioning the treatment of the Dalits by non-Dalit Indians.

      There is a little information about the literacy rate here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Literacy_in_India

      I imagine that because India is populated with large groups of people that speak substantially different languages (which makes it less efficient for leaders of India to get their suggestions and rules communicated and easier for people to speak “behind the backs” of those leaders without it being realized if they are going against the will of those leaders) and because India’s people they worship many shallow false gods or are divided by their worship of some specific false god out of many false gods, with stupid religious dietary and travel rules for their followers (which are really the stupid rules of men), that India remains in the dark. Other examples of how polytheistic religions keep people from advancing in wisdom and knowledge are the Mormons, who believe that there are many gods and that there will be an infinite increase in gods who, because of their stupid rules and beliefs, can’t believe what is logical and true, and so mostly, end up using modern technology, like the Indians, simply to spread to their stupid beliefs. It’s as if they were living viruses, using the good to spread the bag. Another example is Haiti. An opposite extreme also leads to stagnation and reversing, which is atheism, which leads to the worship of men, like in North Korea, China, and Cuba, and they too have many problems. However China has a large Christian population, which I guess is about 130 million by now, some of which are Catholics (who are polytheists, worshiping many so called “saints”) and Christianity helps people to become wiser, but them more impure the religion, the less helpful, and there are various types of Christian types of religion, some better than others. China has been influenced by Christianity for a long time, which the Chinese government rigorously tries to control (which would naturally force them to study the Bible in order to manipulate it effectively, but which have a side-effect of influencing whoever is trying to do the twisting to at least give the appearance of being good), and by doing this, the Chinese government is unknowingly helping to secure and spread Christianity.

      Here are two language maps http://www.columbia.edu/itc/mealac/pritchett/00maplinks/overview/languages/himal1992max.jpg

      If India wants to improve, it should decide on one national language, which I advise should be English, while studying Sanskrit as a second language so that they don’t feel like immigrants in their own country, and are still able to learn about their past with ease, while being able to smoothly progress with the rest of the world in understanding and knowledge.

    Just read your piece on Sunyata from last year. I can understand why it read like nonsense to you and I’m not sure why someone asked you to read it. If you had a firm and long history of meditation you would realize that sunyata (that things are connected and not separate) is the essential nature of reality, but without practice this is impossible to understand. The writer is not a charlatan, but someone who has seen something profound. I understand everything that was written, but it is a nonconceptual knowledge and irrelevant to the person who has not had the same insights. And there is nothing wrong with desiring to obey God, but when God is merely a way for a person to tether their identity to beliefs, they are not worshipping God but their own desires and fears. This is the majority of pious members of all faiths, including Buddhism. Perhaps one way to understand what the writer is pointing towards would be to examine what your experience is when you’re not labeling reality and just experiencing it. Be well and God bless.

    • March 4, 2012 at 11:23 PM

      “Just read your piece on Sunyata from last year.

      And didn’t understand it according to your comment below even though what I said was utterly plain language, unlike the narcissistic rant I quoted.

      “I can understand why it read like nonsense to you”

      Why would you have to guess as that sentence implies, when I simply explained? You sound very arrogant, Mr. “Bill”

      “and I’m not sure why someone asked you to read it.”

      You committed the fallacy of assumption right there. You’re not off to a good start. Who told you someone asked me to read it and WHY would that matter either? Why are you Buddhists always assuming and bringing up things that don’t matter when talking about a subject like your own religion?

      “If you had a firm and long history of meditation you would realize that sunyata (that things are connected and not separate) is the essential nature of reality,” but without practice this is impossible to understand.”

      Because you said so (begging the question fallacy). And Bill, you committed a third fallacy: vagueness. “Meditation” means more than one thing so in the sentence you used it it can’t be clearly understood, which is typical of Buddhists. You committed another fallacy: assuming. Who said I’ve never sat pondering something for long? Did you notice I did that for this teaching on Sunyata? Do you think that writing articles like these or the over 680 on my journal is merely hitting keyboard buttons very fast without thinking? No, that’s more like what you did here.

      “The writer is not a charlatan, but someone who has seen something profound.”

      Because you said so and whatever you say is true cuz u said so, no wait because you meditated. Not very profound. What is profound is my ability to unravel Hellishly confusing arrogant nonsense from people like yourself who think shallow nonsense is deep and questioning it and exposing it as false is nothing. You’ve got everything backwards.

      “I understand everything that was written,”

      No, you don’t. You’re a deluded babbler who wasted my time with mere claims. And you seem to have narcissism disorder to make such a childish and arrogant statement being that the questions I posed to this false teacher make it clear he is someone who babbles like you.

      “but it is a nonconceptual knowledge and irrelevant to the person who has not had the same insights.”

      …which made no sense and is another mere claim. Stop acting like you are God, and twisting who God is. Unlike you, God doesn’t just make mere claims; with evidence he proves his claims. There is no such thing as “non conceptual knowledge” because all knowledge conceived. You’re babbling, Bill.

      “And there is nothing wrong with desiring to obey God,”

      You as a Buddhist don’t believe in God, so that statement is nonsensical and hypocritical. You might as well have said, “There is nothing wrong with obeying a lie that teaches to kill those who don’t obey him when he commands them too.” Do you seriously want me to believe you’d let me kill you if I believe God told me to? If so. good for you.

      “but when God is merely a way for a person to tether their identity to beliefs, they are not worshipping God but their own desires and fears.”

      Told you: hypocrisy and nonsense. You said God exists, but then cancelled out that possibility. If you had said, “a real God” that would have made sense. You also committed the fallacy of begging the question: why did you bring that up? It proves nothing and is evidence for nothing. It’s also a nonsensical statement: “when God is merely a way for a person to tether their identity to beliefs” is meaningless. It’s like saying, “When eating apples is merely a way for you to tie your personality to your shoe laces that’s not eating apples but your own desires and fears.” That’s what the Wikipedia Cult calls “word salad”. A mixed up bunch of fancy-sounding words is what you used, to make yourself sound wise, but you aren’t. You ranted. You might have narcissism disorder. You can read about that here: http://narcissism.tk

      “This is the majority of pious members of all faiths, including Buddhism.” This is a grammatically nonsensical statement: WHAT, is the majority? Do you mean worshiping their desires and fears? And since when to people worship their desires and fears who are mostly “the pious”? And how do you know it’s the majority? And are you implying that the majority of non-pious non-faith-having people are true worshipers of God, because why else would you single out “the pious of all faiths” whatever that means? Why can’t you speak plainly? Is it really that hard for you to say, “religion” rather than “faith” as if religion was merely something not based on any evidence? Because if not based on any evidence, than you trying to prove or defending Buddhism is profound and true, is vain and hypocritical. Do you realize that pious means, “righteously showing a reverence for God”? Do you know that “righteous” means “proceeding from accepted standards of morality or justice”. Now why would the majority of moral and just people who “revere” God mostly be revering their own desires and fears? You contradicted yourself and spoke nonsensically. MORAL and JUST people who WORSHIP GOD, do not IMMORALITY WORSHIP THEIR OWN DESIRES AND FEARS. And no one worships their own desires their desires and fears, that’s as stupid as saying, “People worship their worshiping of idols,” no, they worship THE IDOL, not THE ACT of worshiping the idol. You are very confused and confusing.

      “Perhaps”

      Use of words like that in the context of a rant like yours is indicative of a narcissist or a very arrogant and/or deluded person. You’re ranting and that’s as much of my time as I’ll allow you to waste. Stop committing the fallacies I pointed out, and humble yourself. God saves the humble, not the arrogant. May God humble you so that you an be saved.

      Be mentally well and may the real God bless you, because a fat glutton with narcissism disorder who died thousands of years ago cannot.

    Where can a condemned man find your books? I have an open mind and lots of time…well hopefully enough time… I cannot find them on amazon, Barnes and noble good reads and any of the other mainstream stores…oh I do pray they are ebooks!
    Holy Jesus save my soul! I am a sinner and need your grace!

    Blacks Ridiculed again by the Mormon Church
    By Lee B. Baker, Former Mormon High Priest and Bishop
    18 November 2013
    ____________________________________________________________________________

    For several years now, every Tuesday evening I have had the great privilege of hosting “Teaching The Truth”, an LDS focused broadcast to the Christian and Mormon listeners of Worship FM 101.7 in Monrovia, the capital City of Liberia, West Africa.

    I have come to know several of the station managers and a number of the more frequent callers to this weekly program. Through their comments, questions and photographs, I have been genuinely moved to see the application of their unyielding faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Over the past few months the question of racist teachings in the Book of Mormon and from the past Leadership of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been on the minds of the Black Liberian converts to Mormonism and the many African Christians who struggle to understand how such a Church can be growing in Africa.

    I believe the answer is relatively simple; it has been the perfect merging of a sincere lack of knowledge on the part of the Black Mormon Converts and a disturbing lack of accountability on the part of the White Mormon Leaders. A near total lack of knowledge across Africa specific to the more explicitly racist teachings found within the current Mormon Scriptures, principally that of Black Skin and even less information concerning the racism and bigotry openly and officially taught by the early Leadership of the Mormon Church. These facts, combined with the current Church Leadership’s inability to clearly and specifically reject its own racist teachings both in print and from its past Senior Leadership (liberally using the terms Nigger, Darky, Sambo and Skin of Blackness ), has left the Black Race with only a short irresponsible and offensively juvenile Official Statement that claims the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints knows very little about its own race-based policy, which lasted for well over 100 years:

    “It is not known precisely why, how or when this restriction began in the Church, but it has ended.” – Official Mormon Press Release concerning Race and the Church

    Maintaining a detailed and comprehensive history of every aspect and teaching of the Church has been both one of the hallmarks and one of the downfalls of Mormon Church. Within the relatively young Church, authoritative documentation, however corrupt it may have been, has never been in short supply. Each of the Senior Leaders of the Mormon Church has had several official biographers as well as an army of Church approved historians to record all aspects of the History of the Church. In fact, one of my first of many “Callings” in the Mormon Church was that of a Ward (Congregational) Historian, long before I became a Mormon High Priest and Bishop.

    The peculiar assertion that the Mormon Church itself does not know the details of its very own race-based policy of restricting the Blacks from holding the Priesthood is tremendously embarrassing for all Mormons and exceptionally degrading for anyone who actually believes it.

    As a former local leader of the Mormon Church, I have repeatedly assured the African members of the Mormon Church that the documents and “Scriptures” I have read to them over the air are both Authorized and Official for the time period they are relevant to. I clearly state the current position of total acceptance of all Races by the Church, but I must highlight the fact that the Book of Mormon still carries it’s obviously racist message that dark skin was a curse from God. I have said many times on-air that like the Mormon Missionaries, I too believe that every African should have a copy of the Book of Mormon, if only to learn the truly racist teaching of the Mormons, directly from the Book of Mormon.

    I have and will continue to teach the African Nations from the authentic Mormon Scriptures and the official Church History documents, which I had been provided by the Mormon Church to execute my responsibilities as a Mormon Bishop. The Official Records of the Mormon Church include many jokes and sermons given within the Official Semi-Annual General Conference of the Mormons, using freely the terms Nigger, Darky and Sambo. Additionally, these LDS Church documents record nearly 100 graphic sermons and lessons that clearly teach the principle, practice and policy that Black Skin was, is and will remain forever the Curse of Cain.

    Only in the recent past has the “Complete History” of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints come to the attention of its own membership, much less to the under developed regions of the world. As this information is discovered, an ever increasing number of members of the Mormon Church have come into a personal crisis of faith, most notably Elder Hans Mattsson of Sweden, a General Authority of the Mormon Church who has gone public with his doubts and questions concerning the appalling treatment of the Black Race by the Mormon Church.

    Not unique to Africa, has been the Mormon Church’s training of young Missionaries to strictly avoid any discussion of several of the more embarrassing, yet true, teachings of the 183 year old Church. Among the prohibited subjects to discuss have been, becoming a God, the practice of Polygamy and religious racial restrictions on the Black Race.

    With the smooth talent of a skilled politician, the Mormon Church has ended its Official Racial Restrictions with the following hypocritical and deceitful, but technically accurate Statement:

    “The origins of priesthood availability are not entirely clear. Some explanations with respect to this matter were made in the absence of direct revelation and references to these explanations are sometimes cited in publications. These previous personal statements do not represent Church doctrine.”

    As a former Mormon Bishop and member of the Mormon Church for over 32 years, let me be of some help with the translation of this very carefully crafted, yet deceitful message. The two key and noteworthy phrases are: “in the absence of direct revelation” and “These previous personal statements do not represent Church doctrine.”

    I will address the most obvious first, clearly the “previous statements” from the Church and its Leadership “do not” represent the Church doctrine today. The policy was reversed in 1978 and there is no question as to the current policy of today. The hypocritical deception is that between 1830 and 1978 those “statements” did, very much “DID” not “DO” represent past Official and Legitimate Mormon Church doctrine. Yet, I do give full credit to the clever Mormon authors and editors of today for their most skillful use of the English language.

    And finally, the most revealing and enlightening statement from the Mormon Church is: “in the absence of direct revelation”. So then, it is incredibly true and accurate that without any mockery or sarcasm to state that; The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had for nearly 140 years, restricted a significant portion of the human race, millions and millions from what they teach is God’s intended blessings of Eternal Marriage, Salvation and even Godhood, without knowing why they did it, all without “direct revelation”?

    This Official Statement of religious shame and embarrassment comes from the Headquarters of a Church that claims to be guided in all things by “direct revelation”. How then, did such an exclusive doctrine based on prejudice, bigotry and racism become so widely accepted, so authoritative, so convincing and so commanding for so long, without any “direct revelation”?

    As a former Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I give solemn testimony that what they have declared is true, in that, they were and are now racist and do not hide the History of the Mormon Church from its members or the public, this, their Official Statement on Race and their Official “Scriptures ” clearly demonstrates that fact.

    I believe that the truly wicked teachings as well as the repulsive history of the Mormon Church concerning Polygamy, Polyandry-(sharing wives among the men), Blood Atonement, as well as restricting the Blacks from the Mormon Priesthood is available for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.

    It is my prayer that all Mormons and non-Mormons alike will come to know the true history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I wish that every adult around the world could find the time to read the calculated racism and bigotry found within the Book of Mormon5. My hope is that all mankind could discover the contemporary Mormon Teachings, to see the deception they hold, and then… to read the True Word of God and follow the True Jesus Christ found only in the Bible.

    Sincerely,

    Lee B. Baker
    Former Mormon High Priest and Bishop

      thanks for the comment, but paste this on a article on mormonism in my journal, not my contact page. i’ll delete this comment after a few days if i can till you move it

    Why do you call people names when they don’t agree with you? It feels like your bitter or angry? I’m a Christian who stumbled onto your site and I am having a hard time taking it seriously because of the way you respond to others. It doesn’t seem loving or done with a gentle spirit. As Christians we are told to love our neighbor and our enemy and to show mercy. And if we need to correct, to be gentle in doing so as to show Christ character of love and patience.
    Proverbs 15:1

    “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”

    Yours

      “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” WHAT ABOUT IT?! Where does the Bible say DON’T STIR UP THE ANGER OF ANYONE? When a mocker comes on here and makes a mere nasty comment Sarah, do you think I bother replying? You’re judging me based on what you merely see and not applying common sense which is not realizing that I may ignore over 1000 evil comments on this 730+ page “blog” and you reduce me, REDUCE ME, down to a person who mere “calls people names”. And you, ironically, ASK WHY I DO THAT AFTER SUCH AN INSULT? You think I would perceive a comment like that as not HARSH? You remind me of MALICIOUS and CONNIVING atheists, including ones pretending to be atheists, who think that so long as they don’t say, I HATE YOU, but make pretentious comments or seemingly nice ones like, “Oh wow, I see you do need help, I’ll pray for you,” which can also be a way of calling you a hypocrite, that that doesn’t count as hateful, and even, polite, and other atheists will approve of such a comment, like on Wikipedia, but if you say, “You hypocrite” as Jesus did, oh that’s wrong, bcuz it’s against Wikipedia’s personal attack rules.

      The Bible also says to let your yes be yes and no be no, not to be vague, to say what you mean. The Bible also talks about people who bless with their mouths but curse with their hearts.

    • December 27, 2013 at 7:27 PM

      “It feels like your bitter or angry?” Why is there a question mark after that? And if you are a Christian, WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT SAY, “JUDGE BY MERE FEELINGS, NOT THE BIBLE”?!?!?!?!?!?!?

      Ugh!

    • December 27, 2013 at 7:33 PM

      Judge by God’s standards over what your heart says, and apply logical reasoning with care not to be PRESUMPTUOUS about what God’s word teaches or what another person is feeling. Even if I were bitter or angry, why bother telling me about it on some long past comment?! Why dredge it up? Why not write a compliment for once on an article? For years and years I always wonder, “Where are the Christians reading my articles or personal comments, and why do they never leave a praise or follow me to show some support”. DON’T ANY OF YOU SEE THE LINKS ON TOP OF MY JOURNAL, OR READ MY ABOUT ME? It’s you inconsiderate Christians that make me bitter and angry, rather than holding my arms up as Moses was so I’m not discouraged and fatigued, you act like some annoying “shrink” saying, “You seem angry, admit your anger” when I’m not even angry at the time. Idiotic.

    Great Info. Why do you not have articles on Jehovahs Witnesses ? JW’s protect child molesters and break up families and shun those who have been disfellowshipped who decide to love Jesus intead of their watchtower corporation. Please warn people to NOT visit JW.Org . That site supports the JW reliogion and puts down yours and everyone elses. . Instead , please encourage JWFACTS.Com . Thank You.

      It’s because the net is already filled well with that, and they are obvious heretics.

    To sammi who with it’s first sentence replied, “Either you are bragging about leading ‘over 100 people to christ’ (sinning in pride), or just plain lying.” Cuz you said so and whatever you say is true because you said so. Bye circular idiot. And why did you put “The Truth” as your name? So calling yourself what God claims to be, makes you right huh, makes you the truth? What an evil arrogant blasphemer. And super moron: Why would I either be bragging or lying (and not both) but not telling the truth to make a point? So resumes are bragging or lying? So saying what you’ve done is always lying or bragging? Well then you must be a liar and braggart. Fool: stop taking those who do good out of context you childish idiot, get a life and stop ranting you self-defeating fault-finder.

    The rest of your childish rant goes unread, since my time is valuable unlike yours, who deliberately wastes it in bitterness.

  8. May 17, 2014 at 2:47 AM

    I could care less if you disagree, you’re an idiot who can’t or refuses to read carefully, a fool who doesn’t care to understand but is only interested in airing his opinions, didn’t read much of your rant because it’s an obvious idiotic rant. And yes people, his comment is not displayed, I spared you the waste of time.
