How do you know that God really exists? What is the basis of your belief?

An authentic process of knowledge can help one understand what is absolutely right and wrong.

For instance, to be an atheist requires a great leap of faith. In fact, it takes a quantum leap of faith to believe the world created itself, randomly, out of a bunch of chemicals. All it takes to believe that a Supreme intelligence created the world for a purpose, is logic, reason, and common sense.

There is not so much as a single observation in support of abiogenesis, ie. the idea that life comes from matter, where as ID, or intelligent design, is an observable fact of nature.

That's why, by definition, it's less intelligent to be an atheist. Who, but a less intelligent person, will believe in something that has no chance of verification?

Of course, in the present day of relativism, the Absolute Truth is extremely unpopular.

It is alright to know with certainty such things as science and technology, but if you claim to have ascertained the original knowledge of religion from God Himself, if you profess to know God and the real meaning of life, you are immediately dismissed as a deranged fanatic, even though this knowledge is freely available in Bhagavad Gira.

—but, but all religions claim the same…

That’s right. One would expect all religions to claim the same things, because all religions are but different cultural versions of the same Truth. Surely, the details may vary, but the same basic principles are expressed in all religions, so it’s only to be expected that different religions will claim the same. That most religions claim to be the only valid understanding of God, is another matter, not relevant to the point of different religions being different conceptions of the same Supreme God.

All religions, obviously, are derived from the original religion from God Himself, and so it stands to reason that it can be investigated and verified. If it is a fact, it must be discernible. Otherwise it’s just some vain mental speculations. Indeed, that is how religion is generally judged in modern society - some fanciful speculations and beliefs.

Nonetheless, the fact remains - if God exists, it is a perfectly logical to assume that He has given a process by which He can be known. But in the climate of the contemporary culture that presently rules the world, it is very unpopular to know God. Even in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the idea is that God cannot be known.

But it makes no sense. If God exists, He would certainly allow His devotees to know Him. And if there is no God, if everything is relative and material, as claimed in atheism, then it cannot be verified. Why? Because nobody can prove that God does not exist.

See, that's a funny thing about life - if God exists, it can be known for sure, and if God does not exist, it can’t be known. Note, I’m not expressing an opinion here, I'm merely stating a fact - if God exists, it can be known, because in that case God can verify His own existence. And if He does not exist, one can never be certain. It's as simple as that.

Note how the propaganda-machine tells us the exact opposite. Religious people are called believers, and atheists are called unbelievers. How misleading is that? As an atheist you believe in something that cannot be verified. But as a theist you believe in something that has a chance of verification.

Thus it can be concluded that it is a an intellectually superior position to believe in God, rather than the opposite. But if you dare point this out - even though it’s an indisputable fact - you are met with a wall of resistance - no, no, nobody knows the truth. God is merely a fairy tale. To believe in God is no different from believing in tooth-fairies or Santa Claus, and so on.

Welcome to the age of Kali - the age of quarrel and hypocrisy.

Still, God is a fact, and He reveals Himself in Bhagavad Gita.

Krishna says:

Now hear, O son of Prtha, how by practicing yoga in full consciousness of Me, with mind attached to Me, you can know Me in full, free from doubt. (Bg 7.1)

I shall now declare unto you in full this knowledge, both phenomenal and numinous. This being known, nothing further shall remain for you to know. (Bg. 7.2)
