Def Ponder (The fact that is thrown at you)

This pseudocode contains functions such as wonder and ponder, note that this code is not for computers or for sheep. This is for humans, who can think, inquire, ponder, understand and realize. Welcome to Hinduism. Essentially, Hinduism makes you and lets you think, inquire, learn, understand, evolve. For example, Shri Vyasa’s ब्रह्मसूत्र  (Brahmasutra) starts with the words “अथातो ब्रह्मजिज्ञासा” (athato brahma jijnasa) that means “Now is the time to inquire about the Absolute Truth”

Ponder about the power conferred by Hinduism on its followers – the right to inquire and learn. Compare And Contrast the power of Hindu inquiry with the dogmas of Abrahamic religions. Ponder upon the fact that thousands of people were burnt alive for being

heretic a person who has beliefs that are opposed to the official belief of a church – Cambridge Dictionary
