  1. If Rebecca Goldstein has 36 reasons for believing in God… she is absolutely right! Belief in God is necessitated from the fact that we as human beings exist! Primarily we are a soul atman on its cosmic journey that has manifested human form to work out its karma… remove dross impurities within!

    Every soul atman is God Almighty in miniscule form existing within every living being including human beings! This also confirms the saying that God… is everywhere! If a grain of sand is an independent soul atman… the whole mound God Almighty! The whole cosmos forms when God Almighty explodes self with a big bang!

    The simplest definition of God Almighty is… the cluster of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos at a given moment of time! In its lifetime every soul atman manifests a total of 8.4 million bodies… an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years before human beings reached stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana). Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism is absolutely clear on this point!
