WJKK WJKF. Recently, I have become very interested in the existence of God and I was really questioning if God is all around us and with us. But it seems like science has proven otherwise. Science says that we have no soul as this is proven through neuroscience. We are simply our bodies and brains. We are complex cell systems. It’s not possible for us to have a soul. Science proves karma as false. I know we, Sikhs, believe in karma but scientifically it’s not possible. Religions believe in miracles, but as Stephen Hawking had proven, miracles are not compatible with science. Even near death experiences have been proven as hallucinations. I’ve always believed that God has to exist because this universe is so complex and perfect but science says how complexity does not require an intelligent creator. Also a Harvard study proves that prayers do not work. A study was conducted where people prayed for half of hospital patients and the other half was not prayed for. The same amount of deaths occurred no matter who was prayed for or not. When I pray, I feel like God is with me and that I can feel Gods energy but science says that these are just feelings of calmness and comfort in our brain. I’m so upset because it’s seems like God is being proven false by science. This makes me so sad. Please share your opinion.

Gur Fateh Vaheguru Jot Ji,

While I cannot compete with the neuroscience degree of honorable S. Guruka Singh ji, I humbly submit the following:

  1. NO PRAYER, NO MATTER HOW EARNEST, CAN COMPETE WITH 'TRUTH'.
  2. Prayers do work, but their benefit cannot be measured by a scientific instrument. The existence of the Lord while pervading the entire Universe, is very subtle, as are human thoughts. That is why science needs to resort to polygraphs which can only record changes in brain waves and nothing else. People dying despite prayers, has to do with their upcoming journey and nothing to do with their loved ones in their existing lifetime. Their future program transcends any human entreaty. Prayers are healing and prayers reduce the effect of bad karma. But prayers solely done to test God cannot be successful.
  3. Karma has to be fulfilled and will be fulfilled. We fail to see that we have lived many times before and we have a huge existing account that is too large to be taken into account in one lifetime. We deal with the Pralabd or the Present Karma only because we are not privy to any additional information about our past. To illustrate: Two siblings(twins), born on the same day, experiencing the same love and upbringing from their parents, attend the same school. However, one is a little more aggressive and naughty and keeps getting into trouble through his primary, middle and high school and has a record of receiving punishments. The other has had a clean record in school and is well adjusted and respected in school. One day they both get caught on a serious matter and are sent to the principal's office. The naughty one gets expelled but the other one gets a one week suspension, mind you, FOR THE SAME DEED. This is how Karma works. We need to have ALL THE INFORMATION to be able to QUALIFY the Lord's judgement. The premise here is RE-INCARNATION and PREVIOUS KARMA.
  4. Atheists, are people who have given up their faith because their patience is exhausted, while waiting for the Lord to arrange their affairs as THEY WANT. Exactly like a child who stops believing that his mother loves him or her because she does not condone his or her behavior and will not grant favors until the child changes their behavior. The Supreme Parent is exactly like that.
  5. Atheists have actually GIVEN UP ON THEMSELVES.
  6. Atheists believe that their comprehension and understanding is ULTIMATE and FINAL. They believe that they know enough to be able to judge GOD.
  7. Scientists can only discover what the Lord's timeline wishes them to DISCOVER. All creation and technology is the Lord's doing. Over the last 5 centuries, scientists have learnt quite a bit, but not even on iota of what the Supreme knows. They keep guessing and trying to impress the illiterate public with their random theories after making inferences with their finite brains, and another one follows them with a new ...

Gurfateh Jio! I completely understand your situation, so I will state up front that I have a degree in neuroscience and worked for many years at Ohio State University as a Research Associate in High Energy Physics (sub-atomic particle physics.)

Science and religion are actually describing the exact same creator/creation, but they are using two different languages to do so. Let's take a simple example. Black holes and white holes...

image description

Scientific Language: Black holes are so massively dense that their intense gravitational pull constantly sucks in surrounding matter. Out of a white hole constantly streams newly formed "infant" stars. White holes are known as "star nurseries." The matter entering a black hole is transformed beyond the event horizon and reborn as new "star stuff." All atoms in the universe are the same everywhere, though their proportions may be different. Every atom in and on our little planet Earth came from "stardust." We are all then, literally made out of stardust.

Spritual Language: There is One energy which manifests in all the forms we see. All forms arise from the One and fall back into the One. Everything we see is God. In fact, there is nothing but God, the One energy which is constantly creating, organizing and destroying all forms. Our True Being is suspended at the zero point from which, and into which, all creation flows.

I see no contradiction at all. We are all talking about what is true, just speaking two different languages.
