Jose Gauravselvam Kagoo

Hi There!I am Jose Gauravselvam Kagoo. I am an Indian by birth but consider myself a citizen of the world ( which enables me to shamelessly switch nationalities during cricket matches). I would love to be a member of the Iluminati and am currently researching ways to contact them. When I am not doing research on the Illuminati, I like to read extensively, watch movies and dissect everyday aspects of life. All the views expressed here are my own.

My conclusion is that Kapil Dev has become senile or that there … Continue reading

Science does not equal Logic always

Very often,I come across conversations in platforms like Quora and Facebook where someone immediately dismissed the point of view of the other person just because it did not sound “logical” or is supported by science.
