If they make you believe in absurdities, they will make you commit atrocities. [Paraphrased - Voltaire]
By Parwaiz Khan
The Master of The Game
With purely scientific point of view, we have come to conclude that there must exist an Intelligence and a Prime Source that is at the absolute origin of all and every thing. By virtue of pure reasoning and logic, we came to recognize the existence of The Supreme Intelligence that we can call The Creator. We also recognized that This Creator is the absolute source of the energy, the plan and the execution that brought into existence all that we perceive and sense around us - including ourselves. We also observe an absolute order in this enormous universe - from the tiniest formation of the energy speckles to the Galactic bodies - there exist an absolute precision - Precision that testifies to the fact that this entire Universe is governed and maintained by some very elegant but strict laws - Laws so perfect that they have been able to hold the integrity of the Universe for billions of years.
Our human languages have evolved to express and convey the matters and the affairs pertaining to the realities and the imageries that reflect our real and virtual world in the familiar and perceptible surroundings. The scales and the metaphors of all our expressions are relative to our own familiar world - World that is eventually bounded by the parameters and the similes of our earthly bearings. But, this Earth is jus a planet of the solar system of the Star Sun that, in turn, is just a speckle in one of the Quadrants of The Milkyway Galaxy - The Milkyway Galaxy contains more than 2.5 billion stars spread an average of 31 trillion kilometers away from each others - And, there are more than 2.5 billion galaxies that are spread billions of light years away from each other. It is indeed a very very vast universe.
Our earthly bearings don't provide the tools necessary to describe, express or even visualize this Universe. Our vocabulary and our powers of imagination leave us stranded in our efforts to understand and describe the vastness, the complexity and the intricacy of this Universe.
But, we have only the words to express our thoughts and describe our observations - That is all that we have got. Hence, we are using the words like - Vast, Enormous, Speckle, Particles, Supreme Intelligence, The Creator, Light, Flash, Force, Instant, moment, Heat etc - due to the fact that these words are our only means to depict the events and objects that are otherwise beyond our descriptive grasp. We use the terms - Energy, Gravity and Electro-Magnetic Field/Force - to describe some observed effects and phenomena - even though we do not comprehend the nature of the thing that causes those effects - we have adopted to relate to the gist of the matter without fully getting the truth of the matter. And, blessed with this Adopted Interpretive Doctrine Scroll (A I D S), we proceed in our quest.
This very complex, intricate and enormous universe was propagated by a source of pure energy that we can appropriately describe as The Virgin Mother Energy - It was The Energy and The Supper Intelligent Scheme that was the entire game - There cannot be any clay or hands involved. The Virgin Mother Energy that itself came into existence in a state of absolute nothingness and void must also be the product of The Intelligent Scheme - And, behind The Scheme there must also be The Perpetrator of that Scheme and The Master of The Game - The Creator.
The Identification Process
Now, that all the clues point to this Grand Perpetrator and confirm the existence of The Creator, comes the task of identifying Him, recognizing Him and locating Him - It is just that simple - With only one minor hitch.
There is only one minor hurdle here - So far we have been unable, in fact, to fully comprehend or visualize His creation, this Universe, in its entirety, vastness and complexity - So, how can we even assume that we posses the faculties to comprehend Him? But, we have our own strengths (!). We have adapted to work around the hurdles - We generate the magnetic field to have the charge flowing in the conductors (the current) that allows us to use the electricity - None of these phenomena we really do understand - we simply have learned their interactions and use them quite comfortably. We will rely on these adaptation skills to understand The Creator and will try to know Him by virtue of His creation and the laws and rules governing it.
Limiting The Scope
In our study of The Universe we encounter a very strong probability suggesting that this Universe is not the only Universe - It may very well be one of the universes in a system of Multi-Verses. We further reaffirm our limitations in our quest to understand This Universe alone - There is no way to cope with many other Verses that we can not even perceive! Further, the propagation of the Universe pointed to the emergence of The Virgin Mother Energy from a state of absolute void - This leads us to another probability - that this entire system of the Universe and the Multi-Verse may very well be a - relatively speaking - tiny cavity in, what we can conceive as, The Real World. Since our knowledge about this, very probable, Multi-Verse and Multi-World system is an absolute ZERO - Meaning, bulk of His creation is beyond the realm of our conjectures - And, hence, we cannot give much credence to the evidence that we piece together in our effort to identify Him by virtue of His creation.
Sure, we have hit a major snag. But, we are a creative and improvising being. We are going to improvise our course and limit the scope to form a qualitative profile of The Creator - We are going to compile a sort of listing of His attributes to form a purely scientific and logic based understanding of what fits the profile of The Creator and, more importantly, what doesn't fit into the profile of such a Creator.
Taking a purely scientific and logic based approach, we will analyze and contemplate what can and what cannot be His attributes. This approach will allow us to distinguish between the characteristics that fit the profile of The Creator and the characteristics that fit the profile of the tribal Gods and the pagan Gods
The Attributes of The Creator
Discarding the delusions and belief in absurdities, we recognize that The Creator of this Universe cannot be an irrational, temperamental, confused, scared, furious, lustful, bloodthirsty, and foul-mouthed maniac . Actually, He cannot be any thing that our brains can visualize - He cannot be a physical being - neither a white haired and white bearded old giant of a man nor a muscle-bound warrior - neither a multi-headed and multi-limbed "something" , nor a hybrid of a half-human and half-animal. He cannot be the Chief-of-the-clan or the Father of the household with the assortment of family around Him.
The words that we can find in our human vocabulary to put together a sort of qualitative profile of The Creator, portrait Him as The Supreme and Ultimate Source of The Energy, Intelligence, Logic, Precision, Planning, Thoughtfulness, Permanence, Wisdom, Care, Righteousness, Tolerance and Compassion - Beyond the bounds of any physical constraints of the body - Capable of creating The Plan and The Energy needed to bring into motion the process for the emergence and propagation of this Universe and, whatever other "Verses" there may be - The Source of it all - Beyond any needs - Beyond favoritism - The Creator of all.
This enormously intricate Universe and the precision inherent in the working of it points to an absolutely perfect plan in motion - It points to the knowledge that is perfect - No tolerance for any error any where. The Creator of it all has to be in command and control of absolute knowledge - Beyond the errors of judgment, regrets, repentance, emotional breakdowns and rage.
And, The Tribal Gods
The Tribal Gods, on the other hand, are characterized by irrationality, anger, frustration, deceit, envy, lust and favoritism - They depict the dark side of the human. And, rightfully so, since the tribal Gods are The Packaged Gods - Packaged to sell to the tribe - To make the tribe believe in unbelievable absurdities and commit inhuman atrocities upon fellow homan beings - All in the name of their tribal Gods.
The tribal Gods are the instruments of control created to suppress the virtues of reasoning, compassion and humanity from the human and make them commit atrocities and genocide upon each other. These pagan Gods have been created and promoted to bestow the Authority and Power upon the tyrants - The tyrants then plunder the humanity under the bestowed authority of these Gods.
Tribal Gods utter non-sense and incomprehensible collection of undecipherable "words" that can only be interpreted by the priests of that God.
He is foul mouthed, blood thirsty and deceitful - Demands destruction and killing of non-believers and his enemies - Even children and women are not spared from his wrath - He shows anger, frustration, envy, confusion and bouts of emotional breakdowns.
Tribal God, being the God of the tribe, blesses the faithfuls and the believers and curses others. He is selective - He chooses some and un-chooses the rest - He bestows the world to the chosen ones and assigns the rest of the humanity to the ranks of cattle.
The tribal God demands total submission and acceptance - Any thought of logic, sense or scientific reasoning is enough to invoke his wrath. He demands blood sacrifice and ritualistic worship - He assures the tribe hell unless they seek salvation through him.
The tribal God is the king - He demands the most elegant house and gold and jewels and luxury - Wealth is the sign of tribal God's seal of approval - The kings and the lords are the elites of his court.
For thousands of years these tribal Gods have been packaged in various forms and combinations - Most common being the Trinity of Gods, the Sun/Son Gods and the Father Gods package.
The oldest of the Trio packages are the mid-central Indian tribal (Hindu) Trinity of Brahma (Father God), Vishnu (Salvation God) and Shiva (Warrior God) and the Egyptian Trinity of Osiris (Father), Horus (Mother) and Isis (Son). Plato did also sets forth the doctrine of the Trinity in his Phaedon - Agathon, Logos and Psyche.
The Son/Sun God packages are even more frequent all over the history of human plunder and exploitation. Known to us are: Krishna - India; Mithra - Persia; Apollo - Rome; Baal - Babylon; Balder - Scandanavia; Baccus - Greece; Zoroaster - Persia; Adonia - Syria; Astarte - Carthage; Attis - Phrygia; Buddha - India; Yu - China; and many more to add to this list of Son/Sun Gods.
The tribal Gods induce, by way of continual acceptance of absurdities over generations, an irrational, inhuman and genocidal fervor. Each tribe believes that only their God is the Real God - the Holy God and the Most Powerful God. They are eager to destroy any one who dares to deny their God. In the name of their tribal Gods, they commit heinous crimes against humanity - Thoughtless, witless, brainless and merciless vicious killing zombies they turn into - And, they believe and have faith!
Such are the characteristics of the tribal Gods - The symbols and idols of animosity against humanity - The bundle of absurdities.
And, Accepting the Faith
We the Human are superbly intelligent beings - The very essentials of the intelligence are the logical reasoning, critical thinking and acceptance of truth. It is both very amazing and sad that how we have let ourselves succumb to these bundles of pure idiotic absurdities - Behavioral conditioning from the very childhood and the continuous marketing campaigns have certainly decimated our essential faculties. The fear of alienating and offending the tribal crowd stops even the bravest of the thinkers and scholars of the society from raising the voice of reason.
Even the very well educated and intelligent people in the fields of sciences like physics, mathematics and medicine have adopted to live in two separate worlds: The real world where they live and works - Science, logic, truth and reasoning applies here - And , The world of faith - They accept it as a fantasyland where truth, logic and reasoning don't belong.
And, In faith we do accept:
Hindu Trinity - From the Hindu Bible, The Puranas:
Brahma, the main God, is said to be self-created, or born from a lotus out of Vishnu's navel, or hatched from the cosmic egg. He is often depicted with four heads: as his daughter Sarasvati tried to avoid his lustful gaze, other heads grew up in each direction she ran. She could not escape from her father. She succumbed to Brahma's wish. Brahma and his daughter Saraswati lived as husband and wife(!) Brahma, done with the job of creation, has passed his authorities to God Vishnu.
Vishnu is the sustainer of the universe. He keeps on returning to earth, - in human form - to save the world. God Krishna was his latest incarnation.
Shiva is the destroyer and the God of fertility(!) He destroyed the city of demons - He waited 1000 years until the cities, which rotated in the air, were aligned, then pierced all three with one arrow - He became so powerful because the other Gods gave him their divine energy, which he kept after the battle of Mahabharata. He also has three eyes and a necklace of skulls as "Lord of goblins".
And, The God's words:
I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. . . Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:
Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die.
And, The God's Commands:
Disrupt your daily activities at the most inappropriate and inconvenient hours five times a day to perform sets of rituals.
Wear beard to gain resemblance to baboons - Dress to acquire the functional practicality of a walking tent. Cover your head and hide your face to effectively erase your identity.
Perform paganistic rituals: Throw pebbles on an imaginary enemy - Slaughter animals in millions causing devastation upon the animal reproduction cycle.
Cut hands and Stone to Death in paganistic fury for minor offences of theft and extramarital affairs.
Put to death anyone who blasphemes or becomes an apostate.
Curb your artistic and creative enthusiasm - Destroy the works of art - The human artifacts - The manifestations of human creativity.
Reject even the notion of human progress - Suppress the human intelligence - The epitome of the creation.
And, The Creator of it All
The intelligence, wisdom, care, tolerance, compassion, humanity, logic and reasoning originate from The Creator. This Universe, its emergence and its functioning, along with the life that has evolved on it, testifies to the existence of The Creator who is capable of originating the Mother Energy and bringing in motion the perfect plan and the scheme to propagate and sustain this immense Universe - This is The Creator Who has to be the source of perfection itself - Beyond any doubts, confusions, anger and needs.
The stability and continuation of the Universe, and the provisions for life right here on the earth, substantiates the association of compassion, care, rationality and fairness of judgment as His essential attributes. He is The Creator of the Universe - This Earth is just one of the trillions of the planets that exist in this known Universe - He is beyond the needs of any wealth - He is beyond the needs of any rituals or worships. Self-content and Self-sufficient He certainly is.
The human intelligence and creativity points to a, what we can consider, very thoughtful creation of The Creator. Each and every one of us is His creation. He is The Creator of us all - One we are all in our existence.
Sure, we have the intelligence - We just need to invoke it - And, enjoy the beauty of living in peace and harmony cherishing the happiness, achievements and progress of each other.
May be, we just have stumbled upon the truth - May be, we have seen the Glorious Face of The Human - May be.
