We are human beings. We are curious by nature. We like to explore new things. We like to invent new technologies. We possess an unquenchable thirst for adventures that drives us to discover new lands, climb dangerously beautiful mountains – all because we want to know the secrets that our mother Earth and the universe possesses.
We believe in science and technology. We are creating state of the art technologies, taming the raging wind and sea to use their energy for creation of electricity and other purposes. We are researching on nuclear physics – controlling particles. Why? All because we want to invent new things. In this process, we begin to believe that we are the creator of everything. We think we can control all the outcomes. We think science can explain, if not create, everything in this world.
Take an example – Solar Eclipse. During eclipse, the Sun, the Moon and the Earth come in the same line, in the same plane and position in such a manner, that the giant Sun is covered completely by the tiny Moon. See the beauty of alignment. Why does this happen? Who decided this precision? No scientist can answer this “why”. Ask a scientist, “You say universe is expanding. But why?”. No one can answer this. How did universe came into existence – “Big Bang” or something else? Who built the Stonehenge? Who drew the Nazca lines? The figurines in the Easter Islands – how did they come there? There are innumerable mysteries surrounding us – in Earth, outside Earth, in our solar system, outside our solar system – still awaiting to be unraveled. No science has been able to solve these mysteries of universe.
This is where the ability of science becomes limited. We can create a limb with the help of stem cells, but we can’t create life. We can discover many things, but can’t really reason out all the phenomenons surrounding us . That’s why the concept of “God” comes into picture. Whether you are an atheist or not, you can’t unravel these mysteries, at least till now. So, no one can unravel these mysteries ever? Only time can tell.
” The more I try to unravel the mysteries of the world in which we live, the more I come to the conception of a single overruling power – God. “
