Faith – A matter of UNDISPROVABLE Belief!


Faiths are built on these two cornerstones:

1. Unprovable Beliefs

2. Undisprovable Beliefs

Even the auto correcting dictionary of my iPhone is underlining the word UNDISPROVABLE.

What is so difficult for the human mind to accommodate ‘Undisprovable’ as a word, when Unprovable is already a part of the vocabulary of a decent dictionary?

To get to the Undisprovable, one has to have gone beyond the parameters of Time, which are History and the Senses. An idea or a piece of history, which cannot be found out either through the writings of contemporaries or through remains of an archaeological discovery, or not palpable to the senses, are UNPROVABLE , but if an assertion of a fact is mentioned relating to the same period, even if the asserter is unable to prove, the leg on which that Fact stands would be UNDISPROVABILITY.

When such an undisprovable fact is sanctified through revered religious voices, these facts get set as FAITHS.

For example whether Soul exists at all, is not as important as to whether it is a provable fact as much as whether it is an undisprovable fact.

Many charlatans and many sages have asserted facts which fall in this category – Undisprovable fact. But believing in some, have led to salubrious effect on the society and some beliefs have led to deleterious effects. The effects have to be seen on humanity at the individual level, and not on a group, vis à vis an undisprovable fact.

This is the reason why in most of the Modern Laws, the person who asserts a fact has to prove it. If he doesn’t succeed, that assertion is not considered a proven fact.

Let us take one of the most mysterious happenings in the history of Israel- the reign of Abijam or Abijah, the son of Rehoboam, the son of King Solomon, the son of King David.

He ruled only for a period of three years, according to the Kings as well as the book of Chronicles, from the Bible.

I prefer to call him Abijah, as the ending ‘jam’ doesn’t sound good to my ears, for a man’s name. Abijah is engaged in a very decisive war with Jeroboam – the founder of the Kingdom of Israel minus the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. A very capable man who threatened the peace of Solomon, but ran away to Egypt and stayed till the death of King Solomon. Upon his return, he is set up as the King by the ten other tribes against King Rehoboam, the Foolish. Grandson of King David, he neither inherited the skills and cunning of his grandfather, nor the putative “Wisdom” of his father King Solomon.

King Solomon himself was mostly responsible for the plight of Rehoboam. King Solomon died with the kingdom’s coffers dry, replenished only through exacting taxes imposed. Added to this were his advisors, who were hotheaded young men. Why Rehoboam should have had hotheaded young men, as advisors, at an age of 41 years, would be a good question, but no undisprovable factual answer could be adduced from the text of the Bible. With such a flawed inheritance and a bad governing attitude, Rehoboam falls a victim to the creation of the ten tribes. Worse still is the fact that Rehoboam, who boasted that the girth of his little finger was thicker than his father’s waist, listens to a prophet stating that the division was from the Lord and Rehoboam accepts that meekly.

Rehoboam was so enfeebled that he had to accept that decision of the ten tribes, because of his own weakness.

Abijah did not accept this so called “came from God” theory and gives his own explanation to Jeroboam and his forces of 800,000 men of war. Abijah says that by a covenant of salt, the whole kingdom of 12 tribes were given to King David and his heirs in perpetuity by God, and that his father, Rehoboam while he was still young and tender hearted, couldn’t withstand the vain men and sons of belial, whom Jeroboam, the servant of Solomon, had threatened Rehoboam with! At one stroke, Abijah demolished the past, present and future of Jeroboam. Words which talk of the pedigree of a servant disobedient to the word of God, disobedient to the king, a thug, and taking advantage of a newly anointed but an inexperienced king!

None, none in the Bible is spoken to in such terms. Abijah strips Jeroboam with his address. Meanwhile, Jeroboam had started encircling the mount on which Abijah had set his army in array. Abijah further adds that, since Jeroboam, as the scum of the Israel, had dared to fight the God’s anointed, God would fight the war on behalf of Abijah.

The fact as reported by the Chronicler is that 800,000 enemies were to be countered by an army half the size, yet Abijah was not trying to be ‘wise’ like Rehoboam and accept the loss of 10 tribes as God designed, as propounded by the dispersed levitic prophets! But invoked the name of God and was willing to stake it out against a much bigger force. A proposition not considered wise in any warfare. Mysteriously, how Abijah won this war is not mentioned except that God gave victory to Abijah. It was not a mere victory, it was a slaughter, 400,000 men utterly slaughtered 500,000 men and Judah gets back Bethel and vast swathes of land in Ephraim – the tribe of Jeroboam! It was a 125% slaughter. You may choose to believe it or not, but i chose to believe it, not because i am a newly minted fan of Abijah, but because it took the next king of Israel Baasha 35 years, to start the first war with Asa, the son of Abijah! That was also not a war but an act of effrontery of starting construction in Ramah, which was the traditional lands of the tribe of Judah.

If it took 35 years for the kingdom of Israel to recover, some deep injury must have been inflicted by Abijah. In those 35 years, the tribe of Israel was hobnobbing with the Syrians. Asa builds, rather rebuilds the diplomatic ties with Syria, by sending gold and other precious things to Benhadad and breaks those pre-existing ties between Syria and Israel – reminding Benhadad of the earlier ties which, Asa claims as having existed between his father, Abijah, and Benhadad’s father!

So now let us get to the UNDISPROVABLE FACT!

So how did four hundred thousand men rout eight hundred thousand men? Worse still how did they manage to kill five hundred thousand men?

Asa says his father Abijah and the father of Benhadad were allies! In that short span of three years of Abijah’s kingship, he is not reported to have been engaged in any big battle, except for the fact that border skirmishes had taken place. Nothing so decisive as the one which happened in the mount Ephraim, had taken place!

In the meanwhile, the Book of Kings states that the Prophet Iddo had written about Abijah. But history says all his writings have been lost for good – as of now‼️

In this scenario, why cannot i insert a highly probable history, that Abijah had already built an alliance with Benhadad’s father, regarding which Jeroboam was not aware of. And as Jeroboam was surrounding the mount, why can’t i say that there were Syrians who had been lying in wait behind the encircling Israelites?

Why can’t i say that Israelites did not want the Chronicles of Iddo to survive, after Ahab and Jehosaphat became allies! Especially after both the Kingdoms became United through matrimonial alliances during the reign of Ahab?

Am i not entitled to start stories like Dan Brown’s DA VINCI CODE– which merely are stories which have taken bits and pieces of facts from the Bible and strung together EMBOLDENED only based on the UNDISPROVABILITY of those assertions?

Yes, i have the Liberty, so does everyone, but discretion is required by the reader to distinguish between what is an UNDISPROVABLE fact and a highly probable fact.

But beyond all this, if i assert a Faith, i don’t have to stand on facts- but we have to ensure that our faiths do not disturb others’ Faith. That’s the bedrock on which all Faiths are to be ‘bedrocked’ not merely laid.

Solomon’s anxieties.


Absalom had been killed a few years back, who was, like Solomon, a son of David. Absalom was handsome, son of a princess Maacah, who was one of the wives of David. Yet with all those desirable background and personal capabilities, and with most of the people on his side, in an internal fight with his father, he did not succeed. He did not have an army, he had a band of followers – who gave Absalom numbers but not the strength and fire power.

Absalom was Solomon’s Elder Brother and had failed to wrest the kingdom out of the hands of his father David. Now that David was in a moribund stage, Solomon had anxieties.

The prime example before Solomon, exemplifying failure, was Absalom – a man with better pedigree and capability than Solomon Himself. Solomon had to exceed at least in some of the areas where Absalom had shown inadequacy. Primarily that must have been towards the undying loyalty of the army and its commanders. Capturing power was precursor to all sanctification of that power!

Unfortunately for Solomon, Joab the Chief Commander of David’s army was with Adonijah. The second most important person was the Priest, The then Priest Abiathar had also thrown his lot with Adonijah. So two of the most powerful institutions of the kingdom were with Adonijah.

It is at this point that Adonijah committed the cardinal error of NOT including the services of his mother Haggith, one of the wives of David, to gain access to the moribund King David. Adonijah probably assumed that the institutional heads of the army and the clergy were with him and therefore could afford to declare himself the King – though the King was still alive. Adonijah, had a sense of entitlement, he thought he was the eldest surviving son of David and naturally had a right to become the next King.

But the vacancy had not arisen, and any proclamation by even these institutional heads could be construed as usurpation.

This is where Bathsheba and Solomon move in.

Bathsheba must have had a deep fear, about her future in the absence of David, of being stamped as an adulteress and with the kingship in the hands of Adonijah that power could be quickly used for that purpose.

Joab was the commander to whom David had written the letter to set up Uriah, the Hittite, as if to appear as a victim in the battle. Nobody could have known about the whereabouts of that letter written by David now. If Joab were to produce any proof of that letter, even a forged one, the authority would be with Adonijah to decide the veracity and to sanctify the writer’s identity and the content.

Nathan, The Prophet who brought the linkage of the death of Uriah with the intent of murder by David, and published it to David was now in the camp of Solomon. If Adonijah would become the King, then to direct the Priest Abiathar to declare the sentence of death on an adulteress would have definitely been within the realm of a certainty.

Bathsheba had every reason to be afraid and anxious. It was a question of survival. Either make Solomon the King and ensure that Joab is killed or she and her son Solomon would be.

A predicament, which how a mother could have shared with her son – to think, sets my teeth on edge.

But Bathsheba, to my understanding was a consummate crook. Look at it this way – Uriah refused to go to his house when his commander was toiling in the battlefront, but what prevented Bathsheba, who had earlier been emboldened to go to the palace of King David, to make a visit to the same courtyard to see her husband? Was it the guilt of Adultery – which was forced by David? Or was it a pre existing conspiracy with King David, which prevented her from at least visiting her husband Uriah for enquiring his well being, during his refusal to go to his own home for noble reasons?

David, instead of coaxing Uriah to go to his house to legitimise the pregnancy of Bathsheba could have easily planned to coax Bathsheba into seducing her husband, during his short visit, and legitimise the unwanted pregnancy of Bathsheba! But David was not inclined to encourage any more of the conjugal rights of Uriah over Bathsheba.

Power teaches a man the art of obtaining his objectives without asking. The adulteress Bathsheba did not want to antagonise – rather wanted to be more loyal to the adulterer than her husband. With all this in the back drop, it would be my inescapable conclusion that she was a woman who would do what has to be done, and not indulging in vain time consuming moral assessments.

So in this scenario, when Adonijah jumped the gun thoughtlessly, Bathsheba entered the chamber of the dying King David and claimed that she had gotten a promise from David. Bathsheba, backed by the army commander Benaiah and the prophet Nathan made a declaration from the palace. The palace is the place for such announcements and not the market place.

The people Trust proclamations and not mere announcements. The proclamation that Solomon was appointed with the approval of King David would definitely please the people, the sepoys and the army and the prayerful novices of the seminary make up the backbone of the commanders and priests. They form the mass – that’s how, my friend Solomon got rid of his anxieties and with the help of his shrewd mother became the King of Israel.

That Wisdom was granted to him was a later feature, that should not be linked to Solomon, the son of Bathsheba!

Not for nothing is it mentioned in Proverbs 24 thus:

3 Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:

4 And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

But fortunately, there is no mention of what is required for ACQUISITION.

Solomon acquired the Kingdom through the guile and chicanery of Bathsheba.

NETANYAHU IS A LIAR – SARKOZY !


MICHAEL VINCENT of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has reported the following :

It has now emerged via French news websites that Mr Sarkozy said: “I cannot bear Netanyahu. He’s a liar.”

Mr Obama is reported to have replied: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you.”

What is so intriguing about this statement? Nothing, absolutely NOTHING! Firstly, this was not for the ears of the common man. This was a conversation which was between the heads of 2 states who are in the process of co-operating with Israel with regard to the Iranian Nuclear issue.

Let us assume for a minute that what Sarkozy said was true and proceed further. As an “opinion” i hold that the French are the first to reconcile with TRUTHS faster than any other Caucasoid. That has led them to be the pioneers in pursuit of aesthetics. To LOVE BEAUTY, ONE HAS TO RECONCILE WITH TRUTHS. One should not be willful and hold on to opinions contrary to the TRUTH, as revealed through apparent facts. The French get there first. They are not the ‘battering ram’ type Germans, nor are they the ‘opinion reserved’ type Scandinavians, nor ‘the ever ready to settle dispute with a duel’ type Italians! They get there FIRST.

So i have enough reasons to believe that SARKOZY spoke from his heart.

Coming to our man who wants to outdo Abraham Lincoln, Mr. President, i feel that the alacrity with which he not merely endorsed the opinion of SARKOZY but went on to add his annoying experience of having to deal with him on a constant basis. Mr. Obama’s gaffe is likely to draw a bigger consternation back home, as the Jewish lobby is likely to view this as a betrayal of the avowed policy of the US to stand by not only Israel, but also their LIES and their LYING LEADERS.

Netanyahu is the person who had authorized Jewish settlements in the Palestinian region, against the wishes of the Pacifists. The beauty about the lies of a Jew is that, he is likely to invoke the name of Jehovah for each lie concocted, disseminated and propagated and also quote the TORAH in support of his statements. All that an American Christian is to be told is that the BIBLE has said so, and the American goes into the MUTE MODE – as if the sole right to interpretation of the Bible is given to the Jews only. The Bible might have come THROUGH them, but not FROM them. The ZIONIST preachers are also likely to put pressure on the public by depicting Obama as the villain in the piece!

Come to think of it the US and Pakistan are not very different. The Pakistanis would support and rear the Afghans to their own peril in their backyard, as much as the US raises the Jews in its front-yard. What i do not understand is that when the wishes of Golda Meir were acceded to and granted by the Allies, WHAT ARE THE WEALTHY JEWS STILL DOING IN THE US WITHOUT GETTING BACK TO THEIR PROMISED LAND!  

The answer lies in the statement THEY ARE LYING ABROAD IN THE INTEREST OF THEIR NATION, ISRAEL!

So whether Netanyahu is LYING abroad or LYING in Israel, he is bound to LIE!

I love you Sarkozy- you made a statement about an INDIVIDUAL but, just as i have made it a class action, the interpreters of your statement are also likely to brand you ANTISEMITIC.

Earlier we needed an Assange, to publish the inner workings of the Governments, but now a snippet has fallen out from the mouths of the political honchos without any recourse to spin doctoring of their spill-outs.
