is all scientific, its origin and founder should be explored through the
scientific means and knowledge. The religious explanations about the creation
of the universe and existence of the Creator or God are not plausible.
Moreover, such views and beliefs drastically differ among the respective
religions, faiths and sects. As such these seem to be only a guess work and merely
conjecture and irrational.
phenomena from the tiny and invisible sub-atomic particles to the vast galaxies
follow certain basic rigid laws which testify that there is a perfect logic and
order in the universe. By studying the natural laws in the universe, the
inescapable conclusion is that there was an intelligent designer, creator and a
great scientist behind creation of all things that exist.
One of the
evidence that God is a scientist and the universe is entirely and absolutely a
scientific phenomenon can be perceived from the existence of fundamental
constants in the unit of electric charge on the proton, on the masses of
certain fundamental particles, and from the universal constant of gravitation
denoted by letter “G”.
of the universe can be judged from the fact that If the force between nucleons
(protons and neutrons) was a few per cent stronger then the hydrogen, Sun and
water would not exist. Much smaller changes in Gravitational Force or pull
would turn all the stars into blue giants or red dwarfs. The vastness and
constant expansion of the universe at a terrific speed of 70 Kilometers per
second also an irrefutable evidence that there is scientific force or God
behind all this mindboggling and amazing phenomenon. And that is infinity which
means no beginning and no end.
scientists have found out the perfect laws of nature and forces, they cannot
fathom when the universe came into being as the more we go back, the more the question
pops up “what existed before that”. Man
cannot perceive the beginning and end of the universe. However, it can be said
that existence and its creation rules are constant while creation like stars,
earth and other forms may change from time to time.
The Religious story
of creation is given in the first chapter “Genesis” of the Bible. It narrates
how God created the world or the universe in six days and on the 7th
day he rests. First of all, God created heaven and earth. Then God created
light, day and nights, grass, herbs, fruit, evening and morning, then light and
seasons, the sea creatures, then evening and morning on the fifth day, then
living creatures on earth. After all these creations, God made the man in his
image and “breathed in his nostrils the breath of life” and man became a living
soul. Thus, the heavens and the earth and all other creations were finished in
six days. God rested on the seventh day.
Thereafter God creates man in his own image. Then God created Eve from the rib
of Adam. Both were lodged in the garden of Eden. God tells the couple to eat
everything from the garden but not from the tree present in the middle of
garden. Both remained naked for some time.
perception is different about the creation of the universe and human beings in
the form of Adam and Eve. God created
the universe by saying “let it be and it became”. Before creating Adam, God
told the angles and the chief angel (later Satan) that he was going to create
Adam which he did from the clay. After creating Adam, God taught
Adam the names of all the creatures, and then commanded all the angels to bow
down before Adam. All of them bowed but Iblis( Satan) refused to obey. He argued with God that Adam was from dust while he was from fire
which goes up while clay goes down. God
said that what he knows they(angels) didn’t know. He cursed Satan and banished him from the
paradise. He was set free to mislead the human beings till eternity. Thus, God
created his own rival.
Eve and Adam
started living in the garden. God told them that they could eat everything in
the Garden but not the fruit of the tree in the middle. That was tree of the “Tree
of knowledge”. However, at the behest of serpent (Islam says Satan) first Eve
and then Adam ate the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Both became
knowledgeable to the extent that they saw that they were naked. As a punishment
God sends them to earth to a lead life of toil and hardship which is the
and Islamic view about the creation of man depict God as not well-informed and
also revengeful like humans. The narrative upholds Satan’s prediction that Adam
would be sinful. It also shows that
paradise, Garden, angels and Satan (then arch angel) were already in existence
before the creation of Adam.
The Biblical and
the Islamic accounts state that there was a snake also in the paradise who
misled Adam and pursued the couple to eat the forbidden fruit. The snake seems
to be more persuasive than God in prevailing on both Adam and Eve. But why a
snake was there about whom God was unaware that he would mislead both Eve and
the scriptures God came to know about the violation of his command by Adam and
Eve after he saw Adam and Eve Knowledgeable. This happened when God came
walking into the Garden, to see the couple who hid themselves. They came out
and through a dialogue God came to know that they had violated his command and
were knowledgeable for being aware of their nakedness. God punishes both snake
and the couple by banishing them from the paradise and sending them to
earth. It should be noted that God who
is almighty walks into the Eden garden like the human beings and talks to the
couple like a human being.
the religious scriptures he let loose his arch enemy Satan, with all the powers
to prey upon the human beings till the doomsday. Adam practically doesn’t
fulfill the claims and expectations of God that he would spread his message on
the earth. While God eulogizes Adam as faithful and sinless and his messenger
on earth, his wife was the first to disobey the commandment of God by eating
the forbidden fruit.
beliefs and stories mentioned in the respective holy books cannot be attributed
to God who cannot make a mistake and can be unaware as to when the snake enters
stealthily into the paradise and is able to mislead the spouse of Adam. Were
both Adam and God almighty not aware that the snake was misleading Hava the
wife of Adam? Why in the first-place, snake was present there or why God
created the snake in the paradise?
It looks that
the scriptures are the creation of early writers among various societies. Most
of the stuff is about wars and fighting and stories of the mighty kings. Snake
is poisonous on earth and that is why it has been portrayed as an enemy of Adam
in the Heavens also. God could have sent Adam on earth without informing the
angels and Satan. If Adam is a metaphor for the start of the human progeny then
it could have been done in a normal way that being humiliated and thrown on
no one has created God and therefore he is self-created. But there should be a
question as to what existed before God’ self-creation. However, the creator of
the magnificent universe is beyond time and space. Religions’ portrayal of God
is merely confined to be being omnipotent and omnipresent. If God wanted this
earth to be filled with peaceful, pious and obedient people then he could have
done that without the assistance of Adam or anyone else. As such the creation
of Adam and Satan are the metaphors to justify the tussle between goodness and
If it is a test
for the human beings to resist and deny satanic teachings then God should have
empowered the humans as he empowered the Satan. There cannot be any comparison
between the power and everlasting existence given to Satan with the limited
life and powers given to the humans.
can discard or overlook the stories given in the holy books about the creation
and existence of God. Instead there should be the scientific exploration that
would be truthful because the universe is based and founded on absolute
scientific principles. Indeed, there is creator who created this amazing
phenomenon being run on perfect principles immutable laws such as being
fearful and merciful.
God or the
creator has never pleaded himself to be the creator. It is through the apostles
or prophets who convey to the fellow human beings that there is an absolute
authority which should be worshiped, adored and feared for paradise. Even
otherwise the creation of universe drives one to a creator.
scriptures God has been defined as a powerful king or the ruler. Depending upon
their good or bad acts he would award hell or heaven at the end of the system
in the hereafter. The anecdotes and
events given in the scriptures are narrated by the human beings on behalf of God.
God per say, has never addressed or met the worshippers and the believers
himself. It should be understood that God except Hindu, Shinto or Buddhism mythologies
has been mostly a male who is defined or addressed as he and never she.
Shintoism and some other religions, God has been portrayed in the form of
deities each having some kind of trait or features and being male or female. They
are portrayed in the form of idol or statues or physical images representing
various powers. It is only in the Biblical religions of Judaism and
Christianity and also in Islam that God is not presented in the physical form. Islam
is against idolatry and physical featuring of God. In Islam, it is absolutely
forbidden and is heretic to craft an image of God, because the image restrains
the nobility and grandeur and vastness of the ruler of the universe
religions, the belief in God is unassailable and beyond inquiry or questioning.
The concept of hereafter and new birth after the death is prevalent in all the
religions. Judaism, Christianity and Islam believe that there will be hell or
paradise to be assigned to the human beings on the day of judgment depending
upon the nature of their deeds in this world. In Christianity belied in Jesus
Christ as the Son of God is enough for the believers to go to the paradise.
Judaism and Islam base man’s salvation upon the good deeds and pious conduct in
elucidations, teachings and beliefs have been passed on to the human beings by
prophets or founders of religions during the past few thousand years. God has
been there always and is not bound by time or space. It means that before the
emergence of religions, God was still there and therefore the universe as well
as God has no beginning and no end. He is eternal.
the portrayal of God by apostles and in religious books with human traits such
as being fearful and merciful, the fact is that the universe is being run on
absolute scientific principles and not emotions or sentiments or likes and
dislikes. The religious beliefs perceive God as hidden and with attributes of being
pleased and annoyed and always focusing on the deeds of the human beings. The
moral codes and precepts offered by various religions are not the sound and
irrefutable criteria about the creation, existence and continuation of this
magnificent order which is not confined to earth only.
Every moment, new
stars, galaxies and constellations continuously come into being and older ceasing
to exist. As such universe is an emerging embodiment of perfect and absolute scientific
laws. The good or bad deeds or hell and heaven and reward and punishment have
nothing to do with creation and the creator.
In the known
history of mankind, powerful and merciless kings and individuals have been
destroying their opponents and enemies. Even in the present modern and
enlightened times powerful countries subdue the weaker ones. In the name of
religions horrendous pogroms and devastating wars have taken place in which the
victors uprooted and wiped of their rivals for land and power. But God seldom
invoked his mercy for the victims and wrath for the tormenters.
It shows that
human sentiments of kindness, compassion and mutual goodwill which are
essential and inviolable beliefs in every religion have seldom been disregarded
to attain power and pelf. As such religions portrayal of God in the scriptures,
getting pleased and annoyed and maintaining an order based upon moral
principles to be judged on the dooms day to be the recipients of paradise don’t
seem to be valid. If it is a trial and test of humans then it is an entirely
unequal tussle between a powerful Stan and weak and vulnerable humans. God shouldn’t
be portrayed as a powerful lord with human habits and customs.
The fact is
that God almighty is beyond human comprehension although his existence is
proven by the existence of the mindboggling and amazing universe that we see
and in which we live. He is beyond sentiments, emotions and feelings as the
human are. He is the embodiment of unbounded wisdom and knowledge which is
essentially scientific and not religious. But to claim that the moral or
immoral codes and beliefs will take them to hell or heaven is subject to
logical and scientific scrutiny.
More than the
religious laws and do and don’t, the constitutions and regulations crafted by
the civil societies create orderliness, cohabitation, peace, advancement of
knowledge, civic facilities and converting the inhabitants of the earth into a
global community. People follow their respective religions freely though grey
spots of religious bias and faith-based conflicts are still there. Thanks to
scientific innovations and spread of knowledge the present societies are more
prosperous, safer and stable than in the past.
