Atheist v/s priest

Are you an atheist, a non believer who holds truth above his head and talk about the non existence of Supreme Being, one who defines every movement of his life in terms of scientific findings and through laws of physics where the activities gets recorded under the heuristics of mass-body-space-time-speed and distance? Are you a kind of reductionist who infers the happenings with a scientific eye?

OR

Are you that lonely priest in this holy world who believes in the control of supreme power and a mere mortal, an organism who opens up in the arms of some vital force omnipotent but same time hard to unearth in scientific theories?

Is it really possible for a mortal mind to exist without faith?

It’s hard for me to judge as to who am I, a believer of implicit things having lesser reality (evidence) but more belief associated with it or someone who gets fascinated to the pragmatic findings of scientific evolution.

 Is it really true or possible in imagination for an agnostic to live faithless in knowing anything and everything about the universe which does include the myths about ‘THE ONE’? A non believer in such a case shouldn’t believe in his very own personal findings as well for eg: while walking or having supper. Why not a more calculative technical approach followed while taking every new step with an assumption the ground below his next step may slip or may not be in position to hold his weight? It’s this belief in his sub conscious mind that sends signals of faith and gives confidence to go ahead as the ground shall not slip and will hold the mass while moving without making any space-time-mass-body-energy-length calculations. Similarly, while consuming food, why the value (worth) of food is judged by the freshness, flavor or aroma and why not by the calculations of heat and the temperature at which it was cooked? Every atheist I believe holds some belief in the vague happenings around him yet not cemented on walls of science.

On the other hand, every believer’s view is based on statements less factual and more assumed by paralyzing their mindset with societal knowledge without challenging the authority of the edification passed. From school till date, every social organism is made to belief in the good v/s the bad, god v/s evil and not allowed to question on anything. Is it really the faith or belief to not to question and comply with the learning’s institutionalized or is it the absence of intelligence and intellect to think and raise doubts about laws written in the past?

Is assumption the only way to overlook the findings by deduction? Or is it the complexities of the nature around that makes humans contrive tribulations through myths and erroneous beliefs but not through facts, mathematical figures and equations? Does science itself gives explicit picture to the researches made about the universe without assumptions or only through inference?

And my struggle to find answers to such question continues…

  3. An atheist is a believer too. He believes in something - science, facts, experimentation, etc. While people may have a very high opinion of science, I feel that it is nothing but detailed observation of natural phenomenon. Science can observe how things work in nature and can try to take advantage of it. But it cannot change the way in which nature works. It cannot create anything out of void. In fact the masters of science agree that nothing can be created or destroyed, everything just changes from one state to another. What can be a bigger statement of acceptance of incompetence and ignorance? The beings that are controlling this world are using science as a bait to control us and make us do what they want. The world is a matrix and we believe in what we are required to believe.

    1. yes i agree with you rajesh, an atheist is a believer too. its his belief which leads to findings about the nature and put it in science by inferring it with facts and figures and mathematical equations.

      but everybody cannot be an atheist. each atheist has a priest held within him somewhere in the dark hard to surface. we are a mixed lot, we say we are one thing but we actually fear the other things as well.

      i agree this world is a matrix and we all believe the way we are made to believe !

  7. difficult question, one that doesnot have a answer I think. We humans are a funny lot it depends on our mood i must say if things are going fine then we say our hard work is working and if it does not work we blame god saying he does this ot us all the time ..

    Sanu insaana Mangtiyaan nu nahin hai sabar
    aah ve de de .. oh vi de de.. Ah ve laina Oh vi lain..

    We human beggars don’t have any
    Give me that give me this

    Mille taan kahiye eh hai mera kamaal
    Na mille taan kardaa kaani Wand -
    Kahiye Rab karda Mere naal hi Maada ..
    If we get it it’s our hard work
    If not then God always does this to me

    and then one of the best thing that makes me laugh out loud a lot many times is that , we say GOd resides in the hearts of human, yet we go to religious places looking for it, all the priests and teachers say god is in the heart of human yet the same priests spend all the time doing pooja path and dont give a damn about people :)

      bingo..that's what i believe...we humans are a mixed lot...we are double minded.

      lines from the poem replicates the meaning of the lines said above.

      i agree with you Veer ji, we say god resides in us then what is the need to go to religious places?

  10. COngrats on a brilliantly written post, Rahul. I think the cartoon of the blind man sums it up. The atheist isn't blind, he just hasn't seen enough. The concept of a divine intelligence distinct from human endeavor is difficult to accept. However, even within the realms of reason, there are obvious correlations that we often fail to see which would help us see the larger design of life. Man's endless question of whether there is a divine will is one that can be understood from a rational perspective, from the perspective of maths and physics, and one would still be faced with the divine mystery. When you set out searching for the divine or to prove its nonexistence, it too sets out to find you.
