MagicMan She existed. And then, she did not.

A story of one woman’s lost life and the limits she goes to to put a wrong done centuries ago to right.

Alex Madison goes to the grocery store and finds that her entire life, bar her existence, has been wiped away. It was as if she has never been. No one remembers her; no one knows her. Nor her loving family neither her friends. Not even the man she has been in a relationship for four years though they did break up some eight months ago (all part of some elusive plan in wiping out the history of the history professor).

Surviving on the streets for five days, Alex goes to find the one man she has always loved, Detective Peter McKenzie. Even though Peter does not recognise her, he shows her kindness and gives her some food; be it only donuts and coffee.

But there is a limit to what a man may hear a strange woman say and that is what happens in here. Peter starts thinking her crazy when she starts talking about the life that they have had together. Still, he wants to help the damsel in distress.

Alex, does not need his sympathy. She needs him to believe her and get her out of this predicament. When nothing comes to pass, a sort of miracle happens. Peter’s father, Kenneth McKenzie shows up at the station and, lo and behold, he knows Alex. Taking her under his protection, Kenneth promises her that they will somehow put everything back to normal. In that moment, though, she is happy that someone remembers her.

Kenneth, for his part, has his own secrets that have not resulted in him forgetting the dear woman he loves as a daughter.

But it with the love of Peter, which is not suppressed with all the evil being inflicted, Alex is all ready to defend her and the man she loves from a serial killer who is not a flesh and blood human being. A serial killer on whose case Peter has been working for some time.

Peter’s brain might have forgotten the woman he loves but in his heart he accepts the rightness of being with her. The wholeness of being he feels when with her.

And together they shall face the evil and either eliminate it or be eliminated themselves.

The story is full of how the brain is to be used but the heart must be given the due credit too for making us choose right and wrong. The story is about how not always will a logic present itself to resolve an issue because the answer lies outside the box we hold ourselves prisoners in.

Last but not the least, the story highlights how we need our independence but we need our family and friends in equal measure to fuss around us and be a constant pain in the backside because they are the ones who make our lives complete.

Science is the enemy of Faith


Scientific knowledge exists as the dominant explanation while Faith is a tool used to explain unseen events. Science possesses the thought of rationality and evidence, while faith does not need any evidence.

It can be argued that science can never super cede faith as the primary source of explanation.

There are particular concepts that science may never be able to explain. For example: Life after Death.

Science will never be able to provide reasoned explanations as to what occurs after death. But faith lets us know what will happen to us after our death with accordance to the life we have led.

There are also times when science and faith have totally different accounts to give about the same subject. For example: History of Human Race.

When looked up in the world of science, we discover that humans once lived as apes and gradually developed to what we are today while our faith says that the first man sent to earth, Adam, was already in human form.

Science tries to find a reason for everything whereas faith tries to justify everything as virtue or sin. Science spurs us to not depend on God whereas faith tells us to live a life according to the will of God.

For example can science stop people from lying? No. It is one’s faith that encourages to speak the truth. Even though science has made lie-detectors, they are mere machines.

Another example could be of human values. Does science help you learn them? Not really. It is one’s faith that helps him learn this and fear of Judgment Day is what makes a man moral or immoral.

Can science control bribery, gambling, evil? No. It is a person’s faith that stops him from committing these crimes.

Here I would add that scientists have contributed to both, constructive and destructive forces. Is there even one prophet or messenger who was damaging to the human race?
