Is there a God ?

 Many comments have been made on my previous post asking me why I say there is no God ? Here is my answer :

 (1) Religion believes that there is a supernatural being called God who is permanent, immortal, all powerful and good. Science does not believe in any supernatural beings, and does not regard anything as permanent or immortal. According to science the only reality is matter, which is in motion in accordance with certain laws which can be discovered by scientific research.

 (2) To the question who created matter the answer is that nobody created it. Matter always existed, though it may change its forms. Matter came out of matter. If we insist that there has to be a Creator, then the question arises : who created the Creator ? This is known in logic as the fallacy of the infinite regress

(3) Science does not claim to know the answers to all questions. But science is developing constantly. Many things which were unknown earlier are known today, thanks to scientific research. Earlier men believed that small pox is a goddess ( mata ) whose anger has to be propitiated. Today, due to scientific research, we know that it is due to a virus and can be prevented by vaccination. Earlier, tuberculosis, leprosy, etc were regarded as incurable diseases, now, thanks to scientific discoveries, cures have been discovered. Earlier we did not know how to harness electricity and atomic ( fission ) energy, now we have learnt how to do it.

 There are many things we still do not know, though scientific research is going on e.g. cure for cancer, and harnessing fusion energy. But the answers may be found in future.

 (4 ) If there is a God, why do millions of innocent children all over the world suffer of hunger, malnutrition, lack of clothes, medicine, good education and proper homes. If God is good and all powerful, why does he not give food, clothes,proper  homes,etc to the children deprived of them ?

(5) It is said that some scientists believe or believed in god. That is true. But it only proves that scientific and unscientific ideas can co-exist in the same person, and the struggle between the scientific and unscientific outlook is still going on.


  1. God tells me it would be good to have a discussion with you about this. But God is willing to wait. Cheers.

  2. It is important to.neither believe nor disbelieve the existence of God to be able to explore. If we conclude God doesn't exist, how do we explore? Spiritual processes allow us to explore this. Have we pursued that path so far to conclude? People have spent their lifetimes on a spiritual journey studying this; many got the answer and many didn't. But those who pursued the journey did so with an open mind.

    1. Check this 9 minute video. An interesting anecdote about Gautam Buddha on the subject 😊

  3. There is no better book than The Life Divine by Sri Aurobindo that explains the existence of God in relation to the world. [TNM55]

  4. SUBJECT : Bhagwat's remark on Teresa puts PM under fire . .



    She influenced Vatican , for the biggest single act of ethnic cleansing in modern times-- the forced removal of 6 lakh Serbs ( 600,000 ) from Krajina region -- just because they do NOT allow a middleman with a hotline at Vatican to come in between them and their God Jesus Christ. . . .


    Does anybody know the miracle she performed to get canonised and earn sainthood? -- the least you talk about it the better. Hold your breath-- for curing a Indian woman of stomach tumour. How come we Indians, who worshipped her , and the poor nuns who slogged for her, never knew about this? It happened just by just wearing a Teresa locket, as per the Pope. . .

    This Bengali woman Monica Besra, never had a cancerous tumour in the first place. . .The benign tubercular tumour she had was fully cured after a full treatment course using Allopatic medicines by Dr. Ranjan Mustafi. . .

    This woman Besra was forced to give bullsh#t . . .

    Amongst all those 34,000 pages of official evidence for Teresas miracle cure from beyond the grave, there was not a solitary sentence from anyone who was actually involved with Monica Besras medical treatment. . . .

    My wife was cured by the doctors and not by any miracle- - - Monica’s husband Seiku forth-rightly tells anyone who will listen, not that the Catholic Church has to this day ever spoken to crucial witness like him. . .

    Monica Besra is a 38-year-old tribal woman from Dulidnapur village, a mother of four. . .

    She is illiterate and speaks her tribal mother tongue only, a few words of broken Bengali and English. . .

    Monicas threats to spill the beans had the required effect. . . .

    Fearing her admissions would expose the stage-managed nature of the deceit, The Vatican arranged for HUSH MONEY to be paid to her via, of all entities, the local Mother Teresa Charitable Welfare Society. . .

    Punch into google search - . .

    1. There was an article in the Hindu disproving the miracle. The author quoted the words of Diderot : Men will not be free until the last king is strangulated with the intestine of the last priest." An apt quote!
