[Part-2] Shri Anil asked: In the context of your answer to my previous question No. 6 (in Message on January 10, 2016), why should not we treat the energy itself as the infinite?

Shri Swami Replied: In such case, there is no God and this energy itself stands as infinite without its cause. This energy itself stands as the ultimate cause. The energy creates other forms like matter and awareness, in association of which, this whole cosmos is created with different items. Energy maintains and dissolves the cosmos finally and this is acceptable. The energy becomes the ultimate absolute God. This view was proposed by the atheistic Sankhya philosophy. Such philosophy was condemned by sage Vyasa by giving the reason that the ultimate cause cannot be inert, which has designed this universe in such a perfect manner! However, the scientists feel that even inert energy could do all this design by way of incidental probability. Even though the incidental probability is doubted to do such wonderful systematic design, such perfect design can also be one of many probabilities as per the theory of probability. In course of time, awareness was evolved and the human being finally resulted through the concept of evolution. Of course, this evolved awareness could not be the initial awareness and this evolved awareness cannot also control the whole universe. This objection can also be neglected because of the theory of probability existing in the beginning of the creation. This concept of science is respected as the genuine doubt. In such case, the existence of unimaginable God can also stand as one of the many probabilities, which is 50-50 probability of the existence of God. Of course, we have to accept the 50-50 probability of non-existence of God also in this theory with equal strength. Between these two probabilities, acceptance of the first probability will be wise involving lesser risk.

Once God is accepted to exist, apart from the advantage of perfect design due to awareness of God (this does not mean that God is awareness), a systematic administration of God is also inevitable due to the same divine awareness, in which the existence of hell for punishments of sins results as the consequence of the probability of existence of God’s awareness. If you believe in the existence of God and His perfect administration as consequences of the theory of probability itself and be wise to lead a pious and disciplined life here resulting from the fear of hell, there is every probability of resulting peaceful society with inherent resistance to sin. Even if you have the chance of escaping punishment of sin to be given by the Government of state, you will fear to do the sin due to the thought of probable existence of omniscient God, who is omnipotent also to punish your sin at any time. Here, we must remember that there is a lot of difference between the following two concepts: 1) we have created the concept of God to achieve the result of discipline of human beings to establish a peaceful society and 2) this concept of existence of God is not created by us for the sake of the benefit mentioned in the above probability, but, the existence of God resulted due to the possibility of such probability as one of many probabilities and a wise selection involving lesser risk. If you select the existence of God by the first probability, you cannot expect a sinless society at all. If people know that the existence of God is created by some elder people to achieve a sinless society only, people realize that the concept of existence of God is a total lie created to achieve some good benefit only. In such case, people accept God and His subsequent ethical administration only in words outside and are strong atheists in heart. In such a case, anybody will not do the sin as far as there is a probability of catching the culprit by the Government. Suppose, a situation results in which there is a full chance of escaping the punishment from Government, everybody will do the sin without fear and escape punishment here. Therefore, the atheistic-ethical life of human beings is impossible and this word exactly resembles with the word ‘night sun’. Such atheistic-ethical administration is possible only in the limited situations in which the Government (courts and police) can catch the culprit and punish the culprit. Such situations become very very less in number since there is terrible development of intelligence aided by the advocates, who plead alone for money. In such case, the growth of the sin becomes more and more and the control of sin becomes negligible, which is the gradual fall of a patient in whom the heath becomes negligible and the illness is progressing day-by-day.

Beware that I do not create the concept of existence of God for the sake of control of sin in the society as some liberal atheists often speak that the existence of God was created by ancient people just to control the sin in the society. If this is correct, a lie spoken cannot stand forever and once it is detected as the lie, the expected good results vanish immediately. Again and again, I am warning that I am not developing the concept of existence of God for achieving just this good result of controlling sin in the society. I have developed this concept of existence of God just from your theory of probability only, which cannot rule out one probability of existence of God as the ultimate cause among several other probabilities. Since all probabilities have equal strength, the probability of existence of God has the strength of any other probability as its right as per the norms of the theory of probability. I have selected this probability of existence of God by giving more strength based on the wise selection with lesser risk. To explain this wise selection of lesser risk, you can think that there is no loss to you if you lead a sinless life even if really God is non-existent. But, if God exists based on equal strength (50-50) of such probability among other probabilities, you will achieve the greatest benefit of avoiding the hell in future. Not only this, you will also achieve the greatest benefit here itself by the sinless life since sins leading to more and more luxuries result in several diseases spoiling your happiness here. Not only this, if the sins are avoided, you will not have the tension of the probability of punishments given by the Government. A life without tensions blessed by peace and happiness is the highest wealth. In view of all these advantages, such wise selection of this probability finally results in no risk at all.

Please remember that 1) I have developed the probability of existence of God based on your theory of probability only that was selected by you to establish that even the inert energy could create such well designed universe based on one of several probabilities. I have perfectly followed your view of the inert energy as the ultimate cause and I have taken this probability of existence of God as one of several probabilities based on your theory only. 2) Once the probability of existence of God took birth based on your theory only getting equal strength of any other probability, the wise selection of this probability with lesser risk makes this probability to become more strong than any other probability. 3) The selection of such strongest probability of existence of God indicates no loss to you by following sinless life even if God does not exist (50-50 probability). 4) On the other hand, if God exists (50-50 probability), avoiding hell shows the greatest advantage after your death. 5) If God exists, a sinless life shows highest benefit even in your present life here, which is the eternal happiness and peace in absence of all tensions. In view of all these plus points, the acceptance of existence of God becomes the wisest inevitable way for a scientist or even atheist. Even conservative, rigid atheists cannot rule out this existence of God established by the scientific theory of probability only because such conservative and rigid people of atheism do not accept unlike open minded scientists, even if I prove the existence of God based on the scientific logic, which fails to enter the brain of any conservative person like the light failing to enter a room closed on all sides. However, for the sake of the people like scientists, who open their minds to logic without any conservatism like rooms opened to open atmosphere on all sides, I will also give the analysis of proving the existence of God based on scientific logic.
