God, Religion, Faith, Superstitions etc.

People are interested more in knowing about Aliens, Ghosts and Gods instead of knowing human being and self. They like to believe in things that do not exists, and deny realities and truth. Their brains are captured by creators of Gods. It is a kind of slavery.

Does God Exist?

Modern science have proved how the universe was created. Stephan Halkings, an authority on Cosmic science says that we do not need a God to create and operate the universe. Great scientists like Isac Newton, Benjamin Francklin, Albert Einstein, Carl Sagan have denied the existence of God.

God did not create anything as he does not exist. He himself is an illusion created by man.

Thinkers do not believe in God. Believers do not think. Believers believe in God just because they are told to believe in him. Thinkers deny God because they think, ask questions to self, reason everything and conclude that there is no God.

Not only the scientists, but the great philosophies like Jainism and Buddhism have denied existence of the creator God. Further three out of 6 streams of Vedic philosophy also deny God. Lokayat, another philosophy from ancient India also questioned the existence of God and denied it. But sad thing is that followers of all the related religions to these philosophies have nothing to do the original values, and have become victims of the so called Gods.

Religions Have Divided Mankind

There are too many religions in the world. The followers of every religion think that his religion is greatest, oldest, scientific, logical and the only way to reach to God. (God that does not exist). They want to spread their own religion in all over the world, and for this they wish that other religions should be destroyed by any means. Remember that religions have fought wars and killed the largest number of people in the name of God. This is still going on.

Religions have divided people in the name of God, and further they have divided their own people in the name of sects.

Religion makes many of its followers hysteric. Further no religion wants that followers should think rationally and ask questions, as it may lead the followers to rebel against the religion, clergies and monks.

Karl Marx said that Religion is Opium. But I think he was wrong because he did not know that there were more dangerous drugs than opium to which religions could be compared.

Faiths, Beliefs and Superstitions

When there is a faith or belief, we do not doubt and do not ask questions. It stops the process of finding truth.

Every faith is a blind belief. But it does not mean that we should doubt everything, and ask questions everytime. But when we want to find facts, we should keep away the beliefs. Only this can help us to find the truth.

Blind beleifs can lead us to superstitions. Blind beliefs and superstions can help us if they are mild. They work as Placibo. But when they lead us to believe in miracles, ghosts, black magic, addiction to God and religions, so called gurus and clergies, superstitions can destroy our future.

Blind beliefs and superstions can not solve our problems. To solve the problems, you have to think on the mistakes you have done, and find the way to escape from adverse situation. Gods, religions and gurus can not solve your problems. In reality, you yourself and your close once can help to tacle the problems.

Science and scientist are not perfect. Same thing is about religions, scriptures and Gurus. Science does not believe that it has found the ultimate truth, but believers believe that there scriptures tell the final truth.

The article is based on what scientists believe? Are they perfect? What scientists say is hypothesis and they have limitation of their mental capacity.If one dives in the history of science one finds that what a science has proved one time is disproved after some other time.Then how science is full-proof? See the history of yogis and great saints. They have taked with God and percived God?

Refer Bible, Bhagvad Gita, Upnishads, Vedas,

While I agree that religion has unfortunately done much damage and separated people, I also believe that religion can be very different than being a true representation of God.

And while I agree there are some very smart thinkers, scientists, and philosophers who deny God's existence, there are also many of the same who say that thinking, logic, science, and philosophy actually prove His existence.

I am a great thinker and philosopher myself. I have researched the arguments of those like Hawkings and have found them to be quite lacking. With all of the complexity of his theories, he ignores, hides, or fails to recognize some of the needed foundations that are necessary for his theories to actually be logical. His explanation of the origins of the universe, for example--well--he never explains it. He goes into great depth explaining present time to the first moment of creation, but does not even address the number one question that must be answered in order for his theory to have credence. He says that it just doesn't matter. That's not a highly intellectual answer.

He says that since time ceases to exist before the moment of "The Big Bang" that there is just "nothing" there--he kind of compares it to being like a black hole or a vacuum. But a black hole is something, not nothing. Either something was there--like a black hole. And if something was there, where did the something come from? Or nothing was there. And if nothing was there, how did something come from nothing? This is not logical and in my opinion, it takes more faith to believe in this theory than it does to believe in God.

As you read my comments on this page, it is a careful organization of letters that I'm combining to make sentences which are combined to convey a thought. Is this comment to you a random occurrence of letters that nothing somehow typed on my keyboard to create something? Or can a computer just materialize without the one who builds it? Will an airplane just appear if parts are thrown together in a junkyard? Creations have a Creator. Designs have a Designer. Buildings have Builders. Something came from Something--not from nothing! Hawkings fails to address this point of origins. That's just one flaw that I've founded in the "logic" of the thinkers.

Thanks for taking the time to read my comment!

Thinkers deny God because they think, ask questions to self, reason everything and conclude that there is no God". thanks for sharing this. a thoughts to ponder.

Dear sir,

Very nice thouht & is true.

There are different steps of intellectual levels.

doing something is always better than doing nothing

sacrificing animals, breaking a coconut & meditation without any desire are the same steps

(coconut breaking is substitute to animal sacrifice)
