Part of the conditioning that the person under illusion suffers is........."that as I think, the whole world thinks".
This is false ego run amok at its highest possible degree.
The conditioned mind will think..........I know nothing of God, and since I am the centre of the universe then no one else knows anything of God.
Of course the person who says that there is no God is not qualified to understand God, because they have not prepared themselves to gain this understanding.......just like a lay person who picks up a sheet of music will understand nothing of its contents for they have not qualified themselves to read music.
Persons who have not qualified themselves to understand the spiritual life, display amazing amounts of ignorance simply by opening their mouths and commenting about the spiritual.
The whole world is under illusion and to break this illusion there is a spiritual process presented by Vedanta.
Because persons have no interest in their spiritual nature, they do not desire to apply this purifying process of spiritual understanding to break the illusion of this world, and from that conditioned platform they will believe that their ignorant comments have value.
Ironically even if someone is just an average person of no spiritual background or understanding..........if they are truthful and genuine, they can see clearly a world of design and functionality (not the opposite)
Everywhere one looks, there are evidences of intelligent design and cause....but the foolish person will untruthfully say they do not see this.
They have the madness disease of atheism, and will defend all manner of absurdity to deny the undeniable.
If there is a process to raise the consciousness to the spiritual platform, then why do they reject it.......yes indeed why?
Many of these atheists are of science background, but to reject the means to an end is not even scientific.........but anti scientific, so why do they reject scientific approach when it comes to the spiritual understanding.
They are informed that to understand the spiritual that they must become qualified by applying the process, but they will not do this and then say ignorantly that there is no God...........its just like the person who says they will not take lessons in the understanding of reading music, and then say no one can read music because they cant.
They certainly are mad with the disease of atheism.
