This post is in a way, a follow-up of a previous blog post about God. A recent article I read about God by an atheist prompted me to write about my views about Him.
I think trying to perceive God with human attributes is where the problem lies. Both believers and atheists are guilty of this. Atheists always have questioned His existence because scientifically we are not able to prove it. However, there are many things that we are still not able to prove scientifically. Even in science, there are theories and assumptions made. Many scientific theories and assumptions haven’t stood the test of time. Something that was considered a perfect theory is now being questioned. Science does not have answers to so many questions which have existed since time immemorial. I am not being superstitious. I am only saying that science still has limitations. This does not mean that I am denouncing scientific temper. I strongly believe that you should always try to think rationally before you do any task. Majority of the decisions I have taken in life were done after weighing all the pros and cons. I have relied on logic after thoroughly examining the information available in front of me to take my decisions. I do not see anything wrong with someone being an atheist. It is fine to not believe in God until you have a real life experience. Also, it is better to be an atheist and work for the welfare of society than being a religious person and be the reason for pain and gloom for your fellow beings.
I do have some questions for atheists. Does science have the answer to all the questions in the world? After so many years of scientific research we still do not have answers to so many questions. I cannot list all of the questions that come to my mind in this blog post. However, I can spell out couple of questions here:
Why can't we be eternal?
Why is it that we humans come into existence and die after a certain period?
To conclude this post, for me to become an atheist, science will have to prove that it can conquer death. Until that day, I will believe in God. God for me is that supreme consciousness that has set the ball of life in motion.
