Logical Proof of “God”
April 17, 2012 5 Comments
I don’t see a way around believing in god. No matter how I look at it, all my sessions of deep thought eventually confirm the existence of some ever-present force that created the universe, exists through all of us, and is infinitely connected to every part of the universe it created.
To me, God is consciousness. It is the source point from which all things emanated. It is the divine thought that brought all things into being.
This consciousness that we all experience seems to be directly connected to all matter as well, as shown by experiments in the field of Quantum Physics.
I think that the Upanishads put it best though;“The world is seen and led by consciousness; consciousness is the foundation, consciousness is all there is.”
They also relate this consciousness to Brahman, as it is the thing that connects us all into one united entity.
One reason why I believe that people in recent years are having trouble believing in God is because of the stigma that has been attached to it after years of misunderstanding the word. It is more commonly thought of as something closely related to a human, or a being, who watches everything that everyone does from a passive third party perspective.
Although I have done my best to explain my concept of God, it is truly an unknowable principle and because people have tried so hard to conceptualize the unknowable, it has led to mass confusion, wars, and disbelievers.
The esoteric traditions have tried their best to uphold the true meaning of god. The teachings have remained esoteric, (which in this example means “belonging to an inner circle”), because of the incredible profundity of the subject. Due to the fact that most people are not equipped with the intelligence and persistence that it takes to come anywhere near understanding such an abstract thing, “faith” was created.
But for the people who believe they know better, and have decided that having faith without understanding, is a foolish thing to do, they have started a new religion which is the “anti-religion” itself; Atheism.
While atheists will tell you that there is no way that god exists, and that they, unlike religions, have used logic and reason to come to this conclusion and so it must be true, I would like to counter by saying that logic and reason confirm for me the exact opposite thing; that god cannot possibly NOT exist.
Many atheists will acknowledge that there once was nothing, and now there is something. How can this be, if God is not present in this equation? If all of this was created, this implies a creator, and that is one attribute of God that is agreed on by all world religions.
One counter-argument to this could be that everything just created itself. Of course I would have to agree that there is a possibility that this is true, but if everything created itself, then this everything is the creator and is therefore God.
Sticking to esoteric and mystical schools of thought, we come to a blatant confirmation of what I have just said; God is EVERYTHING.
If we are all just a small piece of this grand cosmic puzzle, then the picture that is made by finishing the puzzle and putting all the pieces together would undoubtedly be God.
In Hinduism, God is the creator, the upholder, and the destroyer.
In an attempt to reconcile Religion with Science, I would like to point you to the incredibly close analogy that Science has postulated reality with.
Science says that the universe was once confined to a Singular Point and that point expanded in The Big Bang into everything that we know the material realm to be.
Science next hypothesizes that this realm will continue to expand to the farthest reaches of the cosmos and will remain in
existence for trillions upon trillions of years.
And a relatively new theory that has shown tremendous popularity as of recently, is that at a certain point, everything will stop expanding and begin to contract back into this point in what Science has termed “The Big Crunch”.
A Large amount of scientists believe this, and are also atheist, which I feel to be a total contradiction of beliefs.
Does this small point which science has postulated not perfectly represent a mystical version of God?
A trillion years may seem like an unfathomable amount of time, but for Brahman, it is just a blink of the eye… and that’s exactly what the big-bang/big-crunch theory seems to perfectly symbolize; God opening it’s eye, and then closing it.
The closing of the eye (The Big Crunch) does seem like a pretty unsettling thought, but don’t be alarmed, for God will surely open it’s eye again, for everything works in cycles.
In order to conclude this essay, I will leave you with a Logic Proof, which, if all points are accepted, proves once and for all, the existence of God.
- If the Universe once did not exist, and now does exist, then it was created.
- If the universe was created, than something created it, whether that thing be itself, god, or any other principle, force, or thing.
- If the name God is assigned to whatever it is that created the universe, and the universe was in fact created, then the existence of God is necessary and cannot be denied.
I encourage you to comment on and discuss what I have written. I realize that I have attempted to do something that might be impossible, but I have had these thoughts recently and felt it appropriate to finally share them with the world.
