I was very young, maybe 12, that my teacher was telling us a story in classroom. At one part he said that God ever existed, exists and will exist forever. It was a really mind twisting claim. I went home and thought about it. I remember that my aunt told me that it is true and try to not think about it, because it will drive me crazy. She tried to scare me, but for my curious mind, I couldn’t let it go. My most of thoughts were on bed, and I came up with a solution, we are trapped in space and time, that’s why it wouldn’t make sense that something has ever existed.
There were times that world problems would excitingly hook me for a long time. It’s funny, but I was trying to invent some simple math formulas, like how to calculate square of a number, just by having the square of the previous number; like we have 169 (which is 132) and we want the square of 14, which is 196. And the solution is to add the base numbers to the smaller square: 169 + 13 + 14. I know I’m terrible at describing it, but my point is that I was always fascinated with science.
I had this ridiculous idea of creating a device that works like a blackhole. Imagine a device in your bedroom with lights on, and the device will suck the light in and the room becomes dark. Then I had the same idea with the sound, it would be a great isolation
The more practical thought was to create a speed bump that is super car friendly. Since sport car chassis are very low, they have trouble crossing the speed bumps. My idea was to implement 2 or 3 air suspensions underneath the bump’s skin, then slow speed cars would easily press that down and cross, but fast speed cars will really feel that bump, because it requires a (short) time to become flat.
Sometimes I really want to go back to physical sciences and study physics, chemistry, geology.. I’m 26 and still have doubts what I’m gonna do in future.
I was keeping this article in draft mode for about 3 weeks; but now I decided to make it public and force myself to finish it up. So basically these are the keywords that would remind me what to talk about. It would help a lot for those who are searching for what to search for.
Again, this page is totally a draft, I didn’t write a sentence yet o_0 Continue reading →
Within last few weeks (especially in Ramadan), I had to explain to every nation that being an Iranian doesn’t necessarily mean we are muslims. Iran is not Saudi Arabia. Majority of Iranians are muslim, but we also have christians, jews, zoroastrians, atheists, etc.
You can figure it out yourself by these facts:
- Iran’s population: ~78 million
- Check out population pyramid of Iran, majority are young.
- Not everyone has access to internet
- Facebook is blocked in Iran
- Iranian Atheists & Agnostic pages on Facebook has more than 150k fans and growing rapidly.
- Iran’s government persecutes irreligiousness or religions other than Islam.
Religion is fading away in Iran. Please stop generalising/stereotyping that every Iranian must be a muslim. Hell no, I’m an agnostic atheist and not giving a damn for god’s existence. I believe in humanity, caring about animals and enjoy drinking draft sake and beer.
When I was a child, they told me that God had existed before creating the world and will exist after its collapse. At first, it looked unrealistic and they told me to not think about it, it’ll drive me crazy; but within an hour I got my first idea: “we’re trapped in time!” and it means God’s existence is out of time’s boundary (although I’m an atheist now) and science has proven that we’re living in warp of space and time . My point is to analyse and thinking critically, find what are you interested in, then go for it!
Everyone’s interest will change through years. I wasn’t quite sure what I’m going to be, but had some interests in physics and biology, now I’m blogging and developing websites but looking more for topics like Black Hole, Multiverse, Quantum Physics, DNA, Water, Energies, etc. Yeah, what we make money of might be different with what we’re interested in, but at least try not to hate your course/carrier.
There are couple of stories that different companies and organisations are following America’s sanctions towards Iran’s government and they stop selling products or providing services. But how does it really feel like to be citizen of Iran? Well I received an email just an hour ago and it says they are no longer supporting my account on their website and all my data were gone after I logged in once again using facebook login. Apparently I’m affected too :p
By the way here’s the original content of the email:

Update: I received another email from Jonathan on August 24th that had a good news for me (and other Iranians as well) that this particular sanction has resolved.
