What is God..?

What is God..?
What is God..?
The first belief of the Hindu is in the existence of a Supreme Being. This Supreme Being is described in the Vedas as "unmanifest, unthinkable and unchanging, neither existent nor non-existent." He is immutable and unthinkable; He is the Lord of the Universe. Though He is the source of all that is, He is himself unmoved forever.


The supreme being is Sat Chit Ananda.The most potential source of all is the "Atma"-(The Soul).From Atma the Universe Emerges. It exists in Atma.It merges in Atma.All is known by five sence organs and mind.But mind cannot see the Atma.Any vibration of the mind is possible only by Atma.Vibration of mind is in two forms :
(1) Concept (2) Feeling
Since the mind cannot see Atma,the human being cannot imagine the supreme being.

Life is Energy. When God infused Life into Space it was filled with Energy that flowed from outside the sphere, that is the Space Beyond. The original Source is, therefore, a self- perpetuating and self-generating power house much like the Sun. Unlike the Sun and the stars it is self-created and inexhaustible, permanent and unchanging. If this is also a creative effort of someone, then He is God. He is the only One, beyond everything including Space and Time. Therefore, awareness of God could mean only Cosmic Consciousness. All of them agree, however, there is only one God and it is the Eternal Source. That which is permanent and unchanging and that has no beginning or ending is God say the Hindu scriptures.

RE: What is God..?
Does your God respond to my prayers? Does your God want me to be the best that I can be?

Does your God love me?

God is the hotplate, the infinite heat source for boiling water in which we cook our spiritual spaghetti. Yeah, making up definitions for God is fun and easy - and if you do it well, it can make you rich.

God is how we know that raping children on a whim falls into an entirely different and objective moral category than mere social conventions, such as driving on the left side of the road, or the right.

I think you're confusing God with social instinct, Stereophonic.

Social instincts, such as fear and distrust of those outside one's own clan, can be subjected to reason and changed. By contrast, there is no way child rape can, by subjecting it to reason, be shown to be anything other than an objective moral outrage.

Not really. People use the "social differences" thing all the time. for example, in Rroma culture, marrying at 14 is considered completely normal, most countries now consider that to be abuse.

At the time when they NT was written 12 1/2 was the normal age for engagements, and one married before sixteen. Now we know the damage that happens to a body that age, off having children.

Moral outrage is common when you have someone 13 or 14 pregnant, but at the time of Jesus, was completely normal.

The definition of "child rape" has changed, as we grow more knowledgeable.

Childbearing has been (largely) postponed in Western civilization because of greatly lengthened lifespans, greatly increased education requirements in our technological society, and greatly increased opportunities for women beyond the traditional roles of wife and mother. But even in our society we do not usually consider teenagers to be "children"; that is why, when we are careful, we most often use terms such as "teenager" and "adolescent."

None of this means that child rape can be seen as anything other than outrageous moral evil.

What atheists do, in trying to define morality in terms of social instincts, is shift the problem from the perpetrator to to the group that is offended. The child rapist doesn't have a problem with objective sin and guilt; rather and instead, the larger social group has the problem. This is not the way the vast majority of people define "morality," and it demonstrates how sly atheists employ semantic games to blur the terms and muddle the discussion.

Or could it be that social conventions are simply not even remotely the same as moral decisions?
