I am contemplating

quitting my job and turning psychic and oracle.But wait first I have to kidnap Paul, the psychic octopus 😛 . I plan to utilize his psychic sense to predict events and earn a living !! With Spain winning as predicted by the oracle Octopus, his status as a seer only gets validated further 🙄 After all when the entire planet is taken in with octopus-mania how can lesser mortals like me be far behind..The media  sung paeans of baba Paul.. newspapers thought it better to publish his photographs instead of the poor players who were part of the tournament .and since the poor media is as it is starved for content they cashed in on the frenzy and splashed the story more aggressively. I thought as a nation we were too superstitious and willing to believe in anything at all..but I’ve come to realise the phenomenon is rampant across the globe.. and this time it just happened to touch new heights of ridicule !!

  1. I like your rejection of superstition, but be careful not to over generalize, it will lead you to stereotypes and racist remarks. A historical study of the Christian religion can do wonders for a person unsure of the truth.

    Acts 17:22-34

    22 ¶ Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
    23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
    24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
    25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
    26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
    27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
    28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
    29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
    30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
    31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
    32 ¶ And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.
    33 So Paul departed from among them.
    34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

    The octopus Paul is not a real psychic, but the apostle Paul was sent by Yahweh. (There’s a link to my You Tube on my blog if you’re interested in discussing further 🙂
