The God Particle

It would be a strange perception coming from a Muslim, can be downright haram to even question the existence of God in Islam. But I’m going to remove the religious cap and simply address where my mental faculties takes me.

God has been defined as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith. The concept of God as described by theologians commonly includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), Omni benevolence (perfect goodness), divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence. In theism, God is the creator and sustainer of the universe, while in deism, God is the creator, but not the sustainer, of the universe. - Wikipedia

I believe in God. As the creator and sustainer of the universe. I shall address God as HE or IT. He does not care about the nitty-gritty issues that takes place in every corner of its microbial creation. If there are is an obstacle, God simply creates an alternative around it. He is not concerned nor influenced with our human behavior, of our actions whether we do good or bad, his job 24/7 (of earth time) is just create and keep creating. We may view his creation as grand, wonderful or even destructive and since he is on the driver’s seat he just keeps on driving to wherever he/it wants to go.

Monotheism is the belief in the existence of one God or in the oneness of God. In pantheism, God is the universe itself. In atheism, God is purported not to exist, while deemed unknown or unknowable within the context of agnosticism. God has also been conceived as being incorporeal (immaterial), a personal being, the source of all moral obligation, and the "greatest conceivable existent". Many notable medieval philosophers and modern philosophers have developed arguments for and against the existence of God. - Wikipedia

Steven Hawking said we were created out of carbon dust. I believe so and on top of that I also believe there is an element of consciousness that drives creation. It cannot be destroyed and lingers in the various transparent belt of the universe. I like to call it the spiritual karma, a codec of our thoughts and behaviors that awaits another physical body to host when creation creates a perfect situation suitable with our codec like element, the God particle.

I also do not subscribe to the notion that we are alone in the universe. With vast space, billions of galaxies and unchartered distances there must be similar life form like us in the universe. They may have had a hand in our existence on earth but I don’t regard them as God. Because I want to know who created them before declaring them as our God. Furthermore, I have few bones to pick with them as they did a miserable job in creating our body. Our spines are not compatible with earth’s gravity that 50% of us after the age of 40 suffer lower back pain. A design flaw in the cervical disk I would say and I want to talk to the designer in charge.
