To me it is unthinkable that a real atheist could be a scientist.”

[COPERNICUS] “He was persecuted, not because he went against the teachings of religion but because under his theory man was not the center of the universe and this was most displeasing news to a number of egoists.” 

~ Robert Andrews Millikan [Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923]

Mind is the god of science.

Beyond its puny brain, a science infused mind refuses to entertain. For, the former is its child. Something the human is comfortable with. That there exists a supra “knowing”, above normal everyday science, an egotistic being finds it difficult, if not impossible, to concede. Maybe the super silly claims of his or her own inherited faith, from childhood, colours the vision of most scientists.

Religion is the devil that bedevils a scientific mind.

Perhaps rightly so, howsoever mistakenly so. Indeed, billions of people too are bewitched by the stupendous but superstitious claims of men in religious robes. Not much better than our dear ancestors — the apes.

And for the most part, each religion tries to outdo the other. If one claims itself to be the “chosen” lot, another stakes claim to be the “last” lard. Each curses the other to oblivion. Both endowing one's own people to be the one who shall outlast the rest, till doom puts it all to test. 

Damn another’s god!

The common factor amongst the cursing isms is that their god is conceived to be a human-like entity, and their considered hell and heaven a physicality — a place. As say, the earth is. Lest anybody else claims so, this “personal” god is mired in vagaries. And thenceforth this deity is proclaimed also to be a spirit, or a presence of some sort; who, does good to the believers, and damns the hell out of the unbelievers!

This irks a scientific temperament. By the sheer stupidity of it, its rogue messiahs, the rascally god-men, and owing to its crude and cruel evangelical followers — religion bores a rational mind. Therefore, it closes itself.

And none can find fault with it.

Unfortunately, thus disposed, many a scientific mind cannot look beyond its dislike and disdain for traditional religion. Hence, even intelligent people are woe to concede that freethinkers and freemystics ages through do find a reality over and above mind-made mad gods, and beyond the brain-birthed idiotic isms. For, by now disgusted with the impossible claims sans proof of the die-hard "believe it or die!" fundamentalists, and because of the abominable acts of such religious loonies, the intellectuals fall easy prey to their own god — atheism.

Commonality seen, is commonly believed.

The unseen, the unfathomable, the nameless reality is disbelieved. That the meditating human ego-less-ness loses its “i”-ness, and being-ness, and “ends”; yet “sees” all “this” (turning as if) unto “That” — the Wholeness of All — is considered an impossibly by a mind devoured by scientism. Hence, akin the religious nutcases, the god of science — atheism — too stays dull and dumb, and a questionable sod. 

Consciousness, the realm and ride by which we are able to perceive “all this” and beyond it, is not the maiden scientists have been able to woo. It’s a wacko world! A few psychiatrists, neuro-scientists and psychologists do take a glimpse into it, yet fail to “get” what yogis, sufis and freemystics are “enabled” to. However, the scientists have no say in it. Their messianic mission and matter lies in the concrete “matter” of the labs. Not in the metaphysics of otherworldly matters. Thus, to a majority of the scientists, matters beyond “matter” do not matter.

However, to be fair, some earlier Nobel laureates as Max Plank, Schrodinger, Heisenberg, Bohr, and some other advanced quantum scientists of the past and the present lot do get the eventual fact that probed to the limit, it is found that “matter” ceases to exist in its physical form. Hence, does not matter. And what is the common link between these Nobel prize winning physicists?— They had all read the UPANISHADS, the gnostic scriptures of the freemystics of ancient India. And what had they learned? Simply, and similarly so, this:-

I regard Consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from Consciousness. We cannot get behind Consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates Consciousness.” ~ Max Plank [Nobel Prize in Physics 1918]

Now days a rare scientist does.

Hence, in the present times, the god of science is a chemical accident!

For, thus is the current explanation of this world, dished out by the present luminaries of the theoretical scientists. That some big bang happened, by chance as if. A chemical reaction thereafter ensued. And that these dead chemicals “screwed” with each other! From this dead mating the dead, an “alive” world was formed. We, the living and thinking human beings evolved from the inanimate atoms and insignificant “lower” beings, and came to be, into existence from this freakish unaccountable accident. All this, universe et all, arranged so magnificently, magically and marvelously, thus was birthed. Nothing miraculous about it!

"This.. impossibility of conceiving this immense and wonderful universe.. as the result of blind chance or necessity.. thus reflecting I feel compelled to look to a First Cause having an intelligent mind in some degree analogous to that of man; and I deserve to be called a Theist." ~ Charles Darwin

However, we are told otherwise.

Chemicals we are, chemicals we go! Nothing divine about it. Dead to dead. So seems to be our story. As told by the present, and the current, gods of science!

Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a Spirit is manifest in the Laws of the Universe - a Spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble... In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views.” ~ Albert Einstein

Hi Fakeer,  Thanks for getting back to me.

I understand if you'd rather not change the tone.

Take care,

Thank you, Fakeer.

Dear Don,

Though I quite agree with you that spiritual awareness may not necessarily be available by will or intellect, yet, it may be possible - if the likes of Nobel physicists as Schrodinger and Max Planck etc. are taken as a pioneering example of the aforesaid. 

Schrodinger, Planck etc. - by their own public admission - got a better idea about the "un-explain able" variables of quantum physics once they had read the gnostic texts of ancient India. 

However, admittedly, not until one "gets" the Absolute by self-experience, as the yogis-sufis et all, it is a herculean task to understand the Alpha and the Omega. But pushed to the limitless, a sincere scientific temperament can get the gist of "What Is". Just as a spiritual minded seeker does, or could - if not mired in the quagmire of asinine ancestral religious idea of the Truth.

Dear Regina,

Thanks for your kind feed back. I truly appreciate it.

I am sorry you found the "tone" of my article not "quite fit" for the "friendly" voice you aim for publication. You are the boss. What can I say? I am just a fellow who knows, firsthand, a bit about the subject I write about.

I can be placating in my tone easily, but I will rest uneasy if I do so.

It took me years, and if I may say so - of "crying" - lifetimes, to get "It". The "no god"-ism of armchair theorists, the Hawkins and the Dawkins et all, is somewhat naive, if not utterly on the wrong foot. Physicists far superior to them, Nobel Prize winners, understood the Ultimate Reality better than them, and acknowledged it so, years and years ago. I have quoted one or two of them in my article. And if I sound a bit cynical, and perhaps not "friendly" enough, well, I admit, it is not because of a slip of the tongue. 

My business is the Truth. I state "It" as it is. Please forgive.

Other editorial suggestions by your benign self, in the capacity of Editor, I am glad to implement. Thanks.

Hi Fakeer, 

Thanks for submitting this article. My name is Regina, I'm one of the editors at OM Times. I thought I would give you a bit of feedback, as the article is very well written (and at times even poetic) but the tone of voice doesn't quite fit the tone of voice we aim for in our publications.

We try to publish positive and uplifting articles and at times, this piece sounds angry or sarcastic. While we don't shy away from pointing out flaws in society's thinking, I believe the tone of voice goes too for us to publish this. You are more than welcome to revise it, if you would like to cover the same themes with a  "friendly" and inclusive tone of voice.

My only other suggestions would be to:

- Add an author bio at the end, up to 60 words.

- Please don't capitalize like "unseen" or 'unfathomable" reality to highlight them =)
- Otherwise the third person narrative you have chosen is fine.

Kind regards,
