Answer: There are certain things that have no beginning. We have the experience that things in this material world have a beginning and an end, therefore we always think in terms of relationship between them. There are also certain things which are causeless, but unfortunately our mind can’t grasp that. The mind always thinks in terms of cause, but if there is no cause there is also no beginning. Anything without beginning is also causeless, and anything which has a cause also has a beginning. This conditioned state of consciousness exists without any beginning. This is beyond the mind’s ability to grasp. Therefore in order to understand it we have to transcend the mind. In our present situation we can only accept it.
Does this theory have any proof that there is no God? Just because you haven’t seen God doesn’t mean that he does not exist. I haven’t seen the North Pole, but it exists. And, whatever exists around you has been created by somebody. Nothing exists without a creator. This world came into existence and thus must have a creator. Nothing material happens just by itself, without a cause.
