A dictionary defines 'God' as under:

"the one Supreme Being, the creator and ruler of the universe."

I dived deep into the origin of the word. Another dictionary (Merriam-Webster online dictionary) throws some light that the word 'God' was first used before the 12th century. But Indian Ancient Texts, Vedas proclaimed about God, Universe much earlier and it is very difficult to trace the exact date.

Bing Bang theory says that the origin of this Universe is 13.8 billion years ago (source: Wikipedia). It took me roughly 3 years to deeply understand the scientific explanation on the origin of the universe. The notable book among them is Joel Primack's much-acclaimed work: The View from the Centre of the Universe.

Joel Primack says that the visible universe is only 4 %. Dark matter is of 26% and dark energy 70% and their characteristics are that they would be detected only through gravitational effects. They don't emit electro-magnetic radiation. Why they are like that is not fully understood.

Deepak Chopra, the American - Indian doctor who spent a considerable amount of his life time studying the science and religious texts say that the essential stuff of the universe is non-stuff. He further says that matter is made up of molecules - atoms moving around in huge empty space with lightning speed.

The more you study the science, the deeper would be the mystery. Deepak says that the cosmic horizon is about 47 billion light years. He also says that there are about 500 billion galaxies in the universe. To understand the arithmetic’s on the universe at this scale is very difficult.

We have so many intricacies in the present theories. Scientists when they start calculating time backwards they faced difficulty to go beyond ten to the power of minus 43 seconds which is what they called the Plank epoch. Because their theories and calculations stop working at that stage because natural laws stop working beyond that point and the state of the universe at that point of time might be a thick quantum soup.

Not only that we are shrouded with so many mysteries within our own bodies. You could forecast the future but can't exactly predict the future happening. The natural calamities, sudden deaths of people prematurely should not be dismissed as casual happenings and such incidents need to be weighed from the spiritual perspective.

In the midst of all these unknowns, if the man earnestly tries to make a self-search he may find answers. Since he is the crown of creation on the Earth, there is no doubt to call man the creative expression of God!
