Happy NoRooz(first day of new year in persian calendar)

March 20, 2009

A few minutes ago new years started in Iran and other countries which use Jalali (Persian) Calender .So happy new year to anyone who celebrate this.
The new years in Persian calendar starts at spring equinox .so today is “norouz” = “New Rooz ” = “new day” it’s exactly the time that spring starts . It s one of few things that I love about Iran . Because this celebration and this most accurate calendar in the world are not Islamic and religious and they are pre-Islamic traditions . However this celebration doesn’t excite me as before especially this year that I’m sorry for that young blogger who died in prison and also for his family who are mourning now for their child in the new year.(i have written about it in my previous post).

i know that almost everyone here don’t celebrate nowrouz so i just say: “Happy new Spring to you”

Should i continue my being in internet as an atheist?!!

March 19, 2009

I am a little scared .the Iranian revolutionary guards (the most cruel and brutish armed force in Iran) have arrested 26 people for anti religious activity on Internet .here converting from Islam or even saying something against it in public can cause death punishment. Honestly I admit that now I am more concerned about myself than being worried about those poor people who have been arrested for ambiguous accuses . I don’t any of them (in fact I don’t any active Iranian atheist on internet ) and they haven’t announced their identities but I wish they won’t be executed. however I right anonymously but now that I am writing these lines have fear to be accused of having relationship wit them or defending them.
It s the first time that the revolutionary guards are getting involved in these cases so it s very alarming.
its news in reuters :
Iran says uncovers foreign-backed Internet plot
Another bad news that I heard today was :
Yesterday “Omid reza Mir Saiafi” a young iranian blogger died in the prison too . These are just announced activities and certainly there are many other events that aren’t expressed in medias.
in this link you find more information about this blogger:

What should I do?!!!
should I stop?
Internet is the only place that I can be anonymously myself !!!
I won’t stop but I must be more cautious .

Who is more stupid(or more dangerous) pope or Muslim mullahs?

March 19, 2009

most times when I compare Christianity with Islam I found it less dangerous and more tolerate-able . but some times priests and the Pope change my mind !
take a look at this New York Times article (his first statement about condoms)
Pope Says Condoms Make AIDS Problem Worse

here at least in Iran mullahs have no problem with condoms or other birth control methods or STD prevention .

How can he take the responsibility of the risk of AIDS for millions of his followers by weakening STD prevention programs?
it seems that Pope is a little ahead in stupidity race with Muslim Mullahs!
