Since the beginning of Kali Yuga (3102 BCE), the biggest #hashtag is – Where is #GOD? What is the gender of God?  Why God is hiding? Go by any holy book, they all have the same message about God – “He is invisible, he has no shape. One Universal Creator God. The Name Is Truth. Creative Being Personified. No Fear. No Hatred. Image Of The Undying, Beyond Birth, Self-Existent this whole world is God’s creation. True In The Primal Beginning. True Throughout The Ages.” In simpler terms, God has no physical presence and God is everywhere in everything.

This question is very complex. It is not complex because we do not have an answer to it; it is complex because we do not have understanding for this. We have two classes of human being, be it any Yuga (Satya, Treta, Dvapara or Kali); deities and demons or theists and atheists. There is a theory that, “Universe was created in 6 days and God rested on the 7th day.” Whereas, atheists have a different story to tell. To them, if somebody is so powerful to create and destroy anything, then why he needs 6 days? He can do so in 6 seconds or even in milliseconds. There are people like Stephen Hawking who said – “there is no GOD and it is all science. And, for a #bigbang, there is no need of any divine help. In an interview, I read him saying, “what was he doing before the divine creation? Was he preparing hell for the people who ask such questions?

There is a group of atheists with arguments like, “If the whole world is created by God, then who created God? If everything in this universe is for a reason, then how come God get the free pass? People say if there exists a God, who is very generous to everyone, who controls everything and who is completely unbiased, “then why do we have wars, terrorist attacks? Why kids are dying of hunger and thirst? Why are a few babies born with physical flaws? Why a few are becoming richer and for a few, survival is a question? With his invisibility, why he is creating the confusion among us? When it was only about his name and his existence, then who sent prophets, who further divided us in religions? Why is he not stopping those who misused and are misusing religions for promoting religious fanaticism? When he has unconditional love for everyone and he wants us all to leave in peace, then who is behind evils like lust, greed, love, anger, luck, jealousy and much more.” To atheists – God is no where!

God is an infinite circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. Nicolaus Cusanus

The theist will say, “God is now here.” In fact, God is everywhere. In everything around us, be it a tree, plant, animal, bird and so on; he is in everything. If there is no God, then who is controlling this universe? How come we have water? Why are trees inhaling carbon dioxide and exhaling oxygen and why not the other way around? How come we see things through eyes and why not through the nose? Almost billions of people already there and never heard about anyone with two tongues or four legs or one eye on the forehead? What is the science behind “sperm to a child?” What is the logic behind the DNA?

Ever noticed, “every new-born kid know how to have the mother feed and only after a baby’s birth, mothers have that mother-feed.” Be it a human or animal – the motherly emotion called motherhood is equal. Science still do not an appropriate answers to questions like – how many stars are there, how many planets we have, how many galaxies we have, how many more earths we have, was there a life on mars or moon, how come a  tree comes out of a seed, why lion eat only meat and elephants survive on plants, even they are physically more powerful than a lion? Why do I have two different feelings on touching my wife and my sister, when they both share the same body features? Is it mentality? Then, where is this mental sense coming from? How beautiful is this concept – “Karma, As you sow, so shall you reap.”

“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” Dalai Lama

The answer that I found is – it is all about making your mind believe. I read somewhere a quote that goes like, “religions are for the people and not the other way around.” But, we live in an environment  where people kill others for religion. We have countless Tantriks, Fake Babas, and Dhongi Matas, who make us believe that God will punish you and if you are not following a religion, you will get a bed of nails in the hell. Ask any single person, are you a God fearing person and answer will be a big yes. This is how we have made our mind believe things. Believe it or not, it is your prime decision and to me, being theist or atheist is barely going to make any difference to that invisible power, should there be one. If you believe in the divine power – be a God loving person and not God fearing person.
