By logic existence of God can never be true. By logic there cannot be a person called God whom we can meet or interview. By logic there cannot even be a God who is all powerful, who can take decision and whose decision would always prevail.
But speaking of ultimate reality in Katopanishad it is said “Who but the one who says ‘it is’ can know it?”.
So Katopanishad says only one who has trust in God can know God.
When we say there is no God, we are speaking of logic. Logic defeats existence of God. But a theist does not depend on logic. He depends on trust. He depends upon the omnipotence of his thought, that God exists. He trusts that there is God.
Very often you don’t know as to whether you love a girl because she is beautiful or she looks beautiful because you love her.
Identical. You trust God. He exists for you. You don’t trust God. He does not exist for you.
It is not important as to whether God exists or not. What is important is do you have faith in the existence or non-existance of God.
What does the atheist achieve by telling that no God exists. He wins an argument. He lives on logic. Neither the argument nor the logic will give him the fragrance of life. An atheist can never be convinced. Firstly for the reason that he is not ready to be convinced and secondly for the reason that God is beyond logic.
But except winning the argument Atheist gets nothing. His ego is satisfied.
On the other hand theist looks at life differently, on trust, without logic.
So existence of God or non-existence of God will not make any difference to anyone. The difference is made depending upon whether you trust in him or not.


  1. So existence of God or non-existence of God will not make any difference to anyone.- AGREED!

    "The difference is made depending upon whether you trust in him or not."- You lost me there. How does it make a difference? Are you saying the 'believers' are somehow better than the 'non-believers'? How can the atheists be affected by something(GOD) they don't even believe in?

  2. Very well said uncle..It is not important for us to focus on "the object of faith"... it is important for us to shift the focus to "faith on the object". For some it is hanuman, for others it is ram or krishna...But faith really heals... You dont have to believe in the god who created you... You only have to believe in the god you created for yourself !It works wonders :)

  3. A very good one!! I don think v ll actually absolve by believing in God or his existence.., its just tat there is this one super natural power whom v cal GOD who plays the pawns of our life! As u ve rightly put forth.. an Agnostic might win an argument... but he is definitely missing out on the faith aspect, which helps us groove our way of life or life in general!! But at the end of it.. i get immense joy in praying to the almighty and thanking him for the reason of my being..! It is utlimately one s own choice in being skeptic about God and his existence.. but i wld say u ll definitely not lose anything being a theist but ll surely lose out on somethn or the other by being an atheist, though!!

    Funny take on GOD. LOL

  6. Quoting Bertrand Russell :
    "There is a simpler and more naive form of the same argument, which appeals to many individuals. People will tell us that without the consolations of religion they would be intolerably unhappy. So far as this is true, it is a coward's argument. Nobody but a coward would consciously choose to live in a fool's paradise. When a man suspects his wife of infidelity, he is not thought the better of for shutting his eyes to the evidence. And I cannot see why ignoring evidence should be contemptible in one case and admirable in the other. Apart from this argument the importance of religion in contributing to individual happiness is very much exaggerated. Whether you are happy or unhappy depends upon a number of factors. Most people need good health and enough to eat. They need the good opinion of their social milieu and the affection of their intimates. They need not only physical health but mental health. Given all these things, most people will be happy whatever their theology. Without them, most people will be unhappy, whatever their theology. In thinking over the people I have known, I do not find that on the average those who had religious beliefs were happier than those who had not".
