The Key - Fox and The Grapes, Revisited

                               When the fable was rewritten, I never imagined writing a key to explain. It seems I have made the post highly indicative and cryptic to decode. Hence, on popular demand, I am writing the key to explain my motive behind writing the story.
                                 As indicated in the fable, it outlines the religious beliefs of various people. What attitude people do have towards religion and faith. However the attitudes are also seen in day-to-day lives in various other issues too. Most readers thought that it was a key to success in career or business, like a management email. They are neither entirely right, nor wrong. I wrote the fable to do away with the myth that Indians are very religious people. We have a population of more than 1 billion and every person defines himself with his/her religious beliefs. As the fable clarifies that there are three types of foxes. We see these foxes in our society(not just India).

In Greek: Atheos
The Sour Fox: By the sour fox, I am referring to non-believers. Atheism has spread like a pop album. Most people share it with others to stand out from the crowd. We can say that about 15% of the population claims that it is atheist with no credible reason. Most of these people have read that some famous person claimed to be an atheist and people respected his belief; so follow the trend. The atheist famous statement:

"I do not believe in God, because I cannot see Him."

                                    This is the most unscientific and intellectually lacking statement. If it is just about vision, humans cannot see Air, Microwaves, Oxygen, Carbon dioxide, X-rays and so on. We can easily infer from the statement that the person does not believe in most scientific and abstract phenomenon. Science definitely knows that there is a lot beyond human vision, and the atheist does not. Then comes the funniest part of his statement:
"I believe in Science."

                                    If you ask a technical or biological question to the atheist, I am pretty sure he/she would not have any idea. A majority of this community does not understand it and will be in a fix if reasoned with. However, there are aces - people who have worked really well to reason atheism. Wikipedia quotes atheists trying to convey that when a baby is born it does not have any religion. Strong reasoning??
                                    I am sure this man has never heard of Sikh faith. A Sikh child has a Guru right at the birth. Also, this would mean that no one should believe in science and technology. I am sure I wasn't born with an engineering degree, and neither is any other engineer. From the weak to the stronger atheist, they fail to provide any foundation at all.
                                   If defined under the realms of science, the atheist lacks the determination to successfully conduct the experiment and achieve success. Hence, he believes that the grapes are sour. Let me quote the real scientific attitude as described by a scientist:

"If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward."

                    You know who he is.
Religious symbols
The Believer Vixen: I know its getting obvious where I am heading. The believer vixen has an attitude like a citizen has towards law. He believes in it completely and knows very little (in some cases 0%) about it. Such person would not go far away and would care very less, as the result has already been accepted. However, when the law is made clear and binding, very few citizens find it acceptable. Similarly, religious believers say that they believe in God, however, know nothing about It and very little about their religion. For instance, everyone uses the cell phone, but only the electronics engineer understands it. Will they reach anywhere? If you answer yes, that would mean that all cellphone users will become electronics engineers.
                                      This establishes the reason for which I think that Indians, being religious, is a false claim. The fact extends to the entire world.

                                  Of the Sour and the Believer foxes, none get the grapes and I think they constitute about 99% of the humans. I know most of you have lost any sense of consciousness by now and are reprogramming your logic chips. The rest are racking their brains to get back at the post because change is difficult and hurts. If its any consolation, I was the same as you until a few years ago. The truth remains unchanged whatsoever.
The Successful Combination:  The correct term for the philosophy is Possibilianism.  The man behind the term, David Eagleman quotes:

"Our ignorance of the cosmos is too vast to commit to atheism, and yet we know too much to commit to a particular religion. A third position, agnosticism, is often an uninteresting stance in which a person simply questions whether his traditional religious story (say, a man with a beard on a cloud) is true or not true. But with Possibilianism I'm hoping to define a new position -- one that emphasizes the exploration of new, unconsidered possibilities. Possibilianism is comfortable holding multiple ideas in mind; it is not interested in committing to any particular story."
                                     Being a possibilian is like being a new clean slate - neat and inviting new concepts to be chalked, beautifully. However, this is not new to religion. The philosophy is explained by a Zen teacher to his follower by overflowing a cup of tea. Similarly, other religions also point for its followers to approach religion with a very open mind. The couple were driven and open to the experiment. They did follow the path with a clear mind and came out with an innovation to achieve it. Similar incidents are notable in religion. However, they are misinterpreted and followed with an already overflowing minds which yields no result or disaster. What follows is Sour Philosophy.
                                       To sum it all, there is a need to conduct the experiment called religion. Only then will one attain success -  the true meaning of his life. The quote of Thomas Alva Edison is quoted by many and understood by none. Following is myth. If the experiment fails, then we must be able to establish who is at fault and not accept wrong conclusions.  The intention is that readers acquire some scientific attitude and conduct the experiment with an approach that is right. There is a strong need for the propagation of scientific attitude and religion.
