Fight against Superstitions
Dispelling superstitions is an
important aspect of the Atheist Centre. The miracle mind is a bane to Indian
society and prevents its onward march. Hence, Gora and Saraswathi Gora
started fighting superstitions right from 1920s and they viewed eclipse, defying
the taboo that pregnant women should not do so. They lived in so called haunted
houses and exploded the myth.
Atheist Centre takes up
programmes to promote scientific outlook and rational thinking. Fire walking
demonstrations are organised in the villages. Many so-called miracles are
exposed. Godmen are challenged to prove their so-called supernatural abilities.
When Sai Baba visited Vijayawada, Atheist Centre questioned him to prove his
miracles. Scores of people were arrested in this connection. It also exposed
the hoaxes of rebirth.
