Sethu controversy

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
Steven Weinberg (1933 – ), quoted in The New York Times, April 20, 1999

Would fit into the Sethu controversy as neatly as hand into glove.

    Good and bad is relative. Someone’s food is someone else’s poison.
    The ultimate good that you can do, is to get a person out of real problems of life and “well understood” religion clubbed with philosophy is quintessential in achieving this goal.

    Religion without philosophy is sentiment and philosophy without religion is fanaticism. What we see happening in our country now is this.

    I offered admission with scholarship to a very bright student from Madras university a few years ago. His name was Michael Vasanth – he turned down my offer, opting instead to join politics. Does anybody have any news about him? He had great talent and possibly a great future in the world of physics, that he gave up.
