Yesterday was a day for some really nice Kebab’s Coffee and conversations with Jamal and Manasi. Conversations with Jamal normally starts with his marriage plans ( which everyone except he is making) and end with ” Sab maya hai” sigh.
But yesterday the conversation took quite a interesting turn. We started discussing Aliens ( Manasi and I unanimously decided we had enough of Jamal and now aliens sound more interesting)
The logic was simple. Our world functions because large number of people believe in the existence of God. In most religions there is a concept of God creating this world. In some ways our belief in God comes from this fact only. There is a concept of right and wrong, heaven and hell and sin and good deeds.
If there is life out there in the universe then that will prove the theory of evolution and will take out God from the equation. And with God out a lot of Godly things will also go away. Concepts like soul, reincaranation, Karma, sin, heaven, hell all exists because God exists.
So there could be all out anarchy if humans were to lose belief in God. And thats why it is in our best interest not to know that they exist???
I don’t know. We had our Kichdi after coffee and went to sleep and realised that on a heavy stomach Jamal’s marriage is probably the best thing to discuss.
