Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 04, Text 11
By Chaitanya Charan Das
Some people are inveterate cynics who ascribe the darkest motives to even the noblest actions. When such cynics target religion, they see God as a concoction for gullible, weak-minded people who can’t face the “truth” of his non-existence.
What these cynics can’t face is their own weak-mindedness in confronting their biases. If God were just a product of imagination, then why would the ranks of believers include some of the wisest people throughout history — philosophers, artists and even scientists, people whose lives reveal them as neither gullible nor weak-minded?
While cynics struggle to explain intelligibly the prevalence of belief even among the discerning, believers explain coherently based on Gita wisdom the disbelief of the cynics.
