WHY? WHY? WHY? Why don't you believe in God?

"I could prove God statistically; take the human body alone; the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen, is a statistical monstrosity."

~ George Gallup, a famous statistician

Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face o

f which we with our modest powers must feel humble.

~ Albert Einstein

"To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree."

~ Charles Darwin(The Origin of Species, Chapter 6).


(Quotes quoted from The Atheist Test by Ray Comfort ( Internet) )

If scientists of that cadre are convinced about the existence of God, I wonder why it is so hard for people to believe in the existence of God. Why is it difficult for us to understand that it is impossible to create a perfect world out of chaotic random phenomena. Even in science we come across multiple occurrences of the fact that there is no such thing as an ideal system.

I consider it lame to even THINK that this world is just a system designed based on if-then rules. In reality, it gets impossible to maintain even a stupid software application that exceeds few million lines of code, how is it possible for such a perfect system to exist amidst all the complexity of its creation ranging from galaxies to sub atomic particles, never failing to do anything beyond the limitations imposed on the sub-systems. If a man swallows an iron piece and expect the digestive system to digest it, Will it digest it? Science comes to terms with proving the fact that there is a force but it can never explain why such a force have to exist in the first place? We do know gravity is reason for things thrown up to fall down. We know some objects/particles revolve around other objects/particles where there is a centripetal force that equates exactly with the centrifugal force. Man had given different names to it in different contexts but why do you think such a force should exist in the first place? Can't the planets or electrons just jump around randomly and still be in a perfect state of equilibrium with the cosmos? Who is imposing the boundary conditions on all the species both tangible, non tangible, living and the non living?

Even if we assume that all the material world like the the universe, the planets, galaxies, birth and evolution of species, et al are an outcome of a never ending scientific phenomena, how do we account for non-material aspects of our existence like love, pain, fear or anger. I refuse to believe that love is a scientific phenomena. If you've ever seen street dogs fight, even a weak female dog will ferociously stand against a number of male dogs, fearing that its baby pups might get hurt by the other dogs. Who implanted this emotion of love and protection in mothers? Now tell me, Are you ready to believe that your love for a man/woman or your family can be explained by a scientific phenomena? If so, good luck with that because you are just a robot or something worse than that.

Why is it hard to trust in the existence of a greater power to which, we can trace our existence back? Honestly, Atheism is not an opinion. 
It is just an outcome of the mind's ego that works at a subconscious level, which DELIBERATELY doesn't (want to) comply with the fact that there is a being whose existence is hard to explain and that which is capable of proving things which "he/she" cannot. It is as simple as, how sometimes you might not like someone being better than you at something. Being an atheist is not something cool or brilliant as some may think because, keeping aside genius scientists like Einstein, Even a fool who doesn't know anything about science can understand that it is impossible for science to explain the myriad more complexities and pardoxes of this world. Now why do we have to be so egoistic? Do we really have complete control at least on our own lives? Can we even safeguard our own ass when there is a natural disaster in town? For such a human existence which is so futile when compared to the vastness of this creation, Why further limit our already limited minds when we can make the mind seek the infinite?

So Dear friend,

Man's life is a puppet in the hands of fate. So why not hold onto that one in whose hands fate is a puppet?

  1. WOW! Loved it totally Vamsi. :)
    I agree with you! :)

  2. A very hilarious post you've here! You do realize that you're just beating around the bush, don't you? Simply quoting a few scientist would prove that the world is created by a unseen, all powerful force beyond comprehension? And where did you get the idea that the world is oh-so-perfect?!

    I could disprove each and every attempt you made here to justify the existence of a god, but that would be a totally tiresome and futile process!

    Tell me something VK, why did you start following the religion that you follow right now? Because your parents followed it? Because you were brainwashed right from your birth into practicing its varied rituals and customs? Did you ever have the courage to question its doctrines?

    Dr. Abraham Kovoor once said, "He who does not have the courage to investigate is a gullible".
