In the previous article we talked about Earth being our real home and What is the purpose of our life. In this article we will explore that who is god?, what is god?

Is God a Human?

or an alien?

or an non-existing entity?

I will answer all such questions in this article. Feel free to ask any relevant questions.

According to wikipedia,  God is characterized as the metaphysically ultimate being (the first, timeless, absolutely simple, and sovereign being, who is devoid of any anthropomorphic qualities), in distinction to other conceptions such as theistic personalism, open theism, and process theism. Classical theists do not believe that God can be completely defined. They believe it would contradict the transcendent nature of God for mere humans to define him. Robert Barron explains by analogy that it seems impossible for a two-dimensional object to conceive of three-dimensional humans.

There are various theories about existence of GOD.

  • Some say he is immortal.
  • Some say he take birth as mortals.
  • Some say he doesn’t really exist.
  • Some say he is everywhere.
  • Some say he is everything you see.

But why am i referring GOD as HE? Is GOD a Human?

There are many Books, Epics, Religions and scriptures that indicates that GOD took birth as a human to destroy the evil and purify the world. Some of the Avatars are here:

  1. Jesus Christ : Jesus (also called Christ which means king or Messiah) was born in Israel 2000 years ago. Modern civilization marks his birth by dividing time B.C. (before Christ) and A.D. (Anno Domini – or the year of our Lord). For his first thirty years, Jesus lived a traditional Jewish life, working as a carpenter. During this time, all of Israel was under Caesar’s Roman dictatorship, including Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, and Nazareth, where he was raised.
  2. Krishna : Krishna was born in northern India in approximately 3,228 BCE. The Puranas consider Sri Krishna’s life to mark the passing between the Dvapara age and the Kali Yuga (current age)Krishna was born in prison to devout parents – Devaki and Vasudeva. At the time, his life was in danger because the tyrant Kamsa was seeking to kill him. It had been foretold that Kamsa would be killed by Devaki’s eighth child. Since Sri Krishna was the eighth child, he was smuggled out of prison to be raised by his foster parents Nanda and Yasoda in Gokula. Nanda lived a simple lifestyle and was a chief in the local Cow herding community. The young Sri Krishna is often depicted in these days as being a mischievous child, who enjoyed playing pranks and having fun. Some worship Sri Krishna as the ideal child of innocence.

    However, even in his young years, Krishna is reported to have killed demons Trinavarta and Putana. He is also said to have lifted a nearby hill – Govardhana to protect the villagers against the wrath of Indra.

  3. Buddha : The Buddha was born as an ordinary man named Siddhartha Gautama in 563 B.C. His father was the ruler of the Sakya people, a tribe that governed an area in modern-day Nepal. Siddhartha led a life of luxury and privilege, but at age 29, realized the world was full of suffering. He renounced his noble birth and became an ascetic wanderer. After six years, he reached enlightenment. He spent the rest of his life spreading his new philosophy.

and so on many avatars of GOD are said to have existed sometime somewhere.

But on contrary, Islam emphasizes that God is strictly singular, unique , inherently One, also all-merciful and omnipotent.According to Islamic teachings, beyond the Throne and according to the Qur’an, “No vision can grasp him, but His grasp is over all vision: He is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things.”He neither begets nor is born, Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”

Ancient astronauts : Ancient astronauts (or ancient aliens) is a pseudoscientific concept based on the belief that intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited Earth and made contact with humans in antiquity and prehistoric times. Proponents suggest that this contact influenced the development of modern cultures, technologies, and religions. A common claim is that deities from most, if not all, religions are actually extraterrestrial in origin, and that advanced technologies brought to Earth by ancient astronauts were interpreted as evidence of divine status by early humans. However no one takes it seriously enough.

That’s all for now. In the next article, we will discuss the philosophical arguments for existence of GOD. Thank you all and do not forgot share your views and ideas.
