GODS ARE REAL

EXISTENCE OF GODS IS A REALITY

There have been innumerable descriptions about God and Gods in the present day world. Some describe God as a concept, some describe God as a belief, some describe as result of human fear etc. But no one is ready to accept the God as a reality. This is just because a massive confusion has been created by The Darwin's theory of Evolution that all life has evolved from chance combination of chemicals. 

In ancient India God and Gods were considered a reality and hence there are few discussions on the existence of Gods in ancient Indian texts. A detailed discussion confirms that Gods are real, Gods exist in present times, that there is one Supreme God and that there are many Gods managing the system of life on Earth.

According to Shrimad Bhagwad Gita

भूमिरापोऽनलो वायुः खं मनो बुद्धिरेव च।

अहंकार इतीयं मे भिन्ना प्रकृतिरष्टधा।।७.४।।

अपरेमितस्त्वन्यां प्रकृतिं विद्धि मे परामं।

जीवभूतां महाबाहो ययेदं धार्यते जगत्।।७.५।।

7.4, 7.5– O mighty armed Arjun, all the living beings on this Earth are formed from these eight 'apara' nature of mine - earth, water, energy, air, space, mind, intelligence and ego. Apart from these eight there is one more nature of mine called 'para' or the 'chetna' or the 'consciousness'. All the living beings on this Earth are created with these 'para' and 'apara' nature getting together. 

एतद्योनीनि भूतानि सर्वाणीत्युपधारय।

अहं कृत्स्न्स्य जगतः प्रभवः प्रलयस्तथा।।७.६।।

7.6– The birth of all the living beings on this earth is from these two types of nature’s forces, and know that I am the reason behind the birth, sustenance and destruction of this world.

Essentially the above three slokas from Shrimad Bhagwad Gita indicate that the presence of 'Para' or 'chetna' or 'consciousness' in all the living beings is the biggest proof of existence of God. This is also the biggest proof that God is present in all the living beings.

"Regarding the existence of God a very simple explanation has been given in the Upnishads. Consider a vacant hall with just one spot light at one end and a chair at the other with spot light focusing on the chair. There are no windows or doors in the room. When the spot light is turned on the chair is visible, otherwise it is not. Consider that we are able to see only the chair and not the light source. Thus the chair is visible because of the light. If we consider the space between the chair and the light source again nothing is visible, not even the light that is traveling through the medium. Similar reasoning has been given regarding the existence of life on Earth."

The very fact that the chair is visible is the proof that there is light source. We may not see anything in between or in the medium, yet the fact remains that the chair is visible. Exactly in the same manner, existence of life on Earth is the proof that there is a creator though we may not be able to see the creator or the connecting energy traveling through the medium.

DARWIN'S THEORY - THE CREATION OF BIGGEST CONFUSION IN THE MINDS OF PEOPLE

"I would like to familiarize the readers with the fact that the theories put up by the scientific community on the origin of life on Earth, are at present in great crisis in the scientific community itself. These theories such as Darwin's theory of evolution were put up at a time when little was known about the complexity of the human body and little research had gone into the construction, formation and multiplication of cells which form a building block of all living beings."

 “During the last 100 years or so a lot of scientific research has gone into the understanding of the human body. It has now been discovered by the scientific community that human body is far more complex than they had ever imagined."

"Darwin's Theory of Evolution is a theory in crisis in light of the tremendous advances we've made in molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics over the past fifty years. We now know that there are in fact tens of thousands of irreducibly complex systems on the cellular level. Specified complexity pervades the microscopic biological world." Molecular biologist Michael Denton wrote, "Although the tiniest bacterial cells are incredibly small, weighing less than 10-12 grams, each is in effect a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up altogether of one hundred thousand million atoms, far more complicated than any machinery built by man and absolutely without parallel in the non-living world."

Theory of evolution as put up by Charles Darwin is built upon the premise as below  (http://www.darwins-theory-of-evolution.com/)

"Darwin's Theory of Evolution is the widely held notion that all life is related and has descended from a common ancestor: the birds and the bananas, the fishes and the flowers -- all related. Darwin's general theory presumes the development of life from non-life and stresses a purely naturalistic (undirected) "descent with modification". That is, complex creatures evolve from more simplistic ancestors naturally over time. In a nutshell, as random genetic mutations occur within an organism's genetic code, the beneficial mutations are preserved because they aid survival -- a process known as "natural selection." These beneficial mutations are passed on to the next generation. Over time, beneficial mutations accumulate and the result is an entirely different organism (not just a variation of the original, but an entirely different creature)."

Darwin's Theory of Evolution is a slow gradual process. Darwin wrote, "…Natural selection acts only by taking advantage of slight successive variations; she can never take a great and sudden leap, but must advance by short and sure, though slow steps." Thus, Darwin conceded that, "If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down." Such a complex organ would be known as an "irreducibly complex system". An irreducibly complex system is one composed of multiple parts, all of which are necessary for the system to function. If even one part is missing, the entire system will fail to function. Every individual part is integral. Thus such a system could not have evolved slowly, piece by piece. The common mousetrap is an everyday non-biological example of irreducible complexity. It is composed of five basic parts: a catch (to hold the bait), a powerful spring, a thin rod called the hammer, a holding bar to secure the hammer in place, and a platform to mount the trap. If any one of these parts is missing, the mechanism will not work. Each individual part is integral. The mousetrap is irreducibly complex.

 "And we don't need a microscope to observe irreducible complexity. The eye, the ear and the heart are all examples of irreducible complexity, though they were not recognized as such in Darwin's day." Nevertheless, Darwin confessed, "To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree."

Darwin's theory of Evolution uses the word 'somehow', that somehow the first life forming molecule of chemicals formed just as a matter of chance. Darwin's theory of evolution does not give a scientific reason to the beginning and formation of life on Earth. Modern scientific reasoning proves that probability of such a chance combination of chemicals happening is 10 to the power of -4, or zero and for such a process to occur the time required would be much much more than the known age of this universe.
