My Views and Articles on God and Religion


I am a computer professional and have written on God and Religion apart from InfoTech Management. I think that for those who believe in God, it is their faith in God which gives them the strength and not God himself. That is why it is said that God is within us. The concept of God and religion is a man-made tool to initiate people into spirituality. Faith gives the edge to this best available tool today. What we have not realized is that it is a double-edged sword. While religion has helped individuals, it has not benefited the world as a whole because of the hatred and killing that it has created.

I have put my views into a book, summary of which is available at
God and Religion - A New Look. The full article is available at God and Religion - A 'Scientific' and Objective Look

While I am not against religion and God, I have a mission to set right the evils of religion.

Mission

My mission is to:

  • Make the world a much better place to live in devoid of religious intolerance,  hatred and religious conflict.
  • Open the eyes to the fact that the concept of God and Religion is a tool and spirituality is the goal.
  • Although it is the best available tool today, it has a deadly side effect. It is a double edged tool - it has led to widespread killing.
  • Help people use this tool and avoid the side effects. After all it is a tool developed using our incomplete knowledge of spiritual sciences.
  • Help keep our eyes open to look for a better tool with no ill effects.
  • Open the eyes to the fact that we are all in a trance. It is not the only tool. There can be and there will be much better tools provided we do not close our minds the way we have, provided we are not fixated to this tool.
  • Make people realize that they can and should have faith, but not blind faith.
  • Give a new direction to our search for an answer to the question "What is God?"
  • Open the eyes to the fact that
    • we have grossly misunderstood religion and god
    • the concept is doing more harm than good.
    • We are in the kindergarten of religious studies and what the common man knows are ‘fairy tales’ and kid stuff. The real stuff is known only to a few.
    • We are foolishly fighting for our religion with our kindergarten knowledge.

Article "God and Religion - An Objective and Scientific Look"

I believe that the concept of God and Religion is grossly misunderstood. It does benefit individuals, but it is doing more harm to the world as a whole than it is benefiting individuals.

This article, which is a summary of the full article which has US Copyright,  presents hypothesis for explanation of God and religion. Of course I do not make a claim to have found an answer to the question "What is God?” At the same time having an answer is less important than knowing how a wrong understanding of God and religion is fostering hatred and bloodshed. It is more important to know that there is no need to divide mankind by religions, than it is to get an answer to the question. Click here to read, discuss and comment on the article.

Extract from Column titled "Politically Incorrect" by Rose

"Premshankar Kamble continued the spiritual quest by proposing a new language called 'mentomatics' that would explain the mechanics of reaching the Godly zone. He likened the Godly zone to that heightened level of awareness where confidence, love, faith and hope are at their maximum making everything possible and within reach. However, the reader reaction to this article was surprisingly violent and reminded me of the reactions faced by Galileo when he first proposed the theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun."

What is Mentomatics

Mentomatics is a term coined by me which is parallel to mathematics. I believe that akin to the physical space, there is a mental space. Just as mathematics helps to explain the laws of physical space, mentomatics is a field of study (yet to be developed) which will explain the spiritual and mental phenomena. Read more....

"The valuable insight of original thought, much like delicate crystal, cannot be prized, possessed or gifted when it smashes unprotected against the rock of opinions. We dress up our thoughts in the armor of words and send them out to wage war amidst the politically charged world of differing opinions. To be politically incorrect is to honestly state what your opinion is without regard for repercussions."

Ancient Myths and Beliefs

If you know stories about how old beliefs tried to explain the physical phenomena before the development of physics and mathematics, please write to me. For instance, according to old Indian belief , Lunar eclipse was explained as follows: the moon is swallowed by "Rahu". As Rahu devours the moon, more and more part of the moon disappears and sometimes the moon is completely swallowed. Hence the eclipse. People used to pray for the welfare of moon during the eclipse, as the moon was in acute pain.

In case you know of such crude stories and beliefs which are now explained by physics, you can discuss and contribute your thoughts on this page (click here to open). You can also email me by clicking here.
