"And he closed the book" - No Gods for the Modern Science

Tokyo


No Gods for the Modern Science

There are no gods of the sun, the moon, the sea, the water, the death, the love, etc. in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

It is not because ancient Hebrews were scientific more than ancient Greeks and other tribes.  But ancient Hebrews did not enjoy making and telling myths involving various gods.  They did not even given deity to heroes of their tribes, although they imagined angels.

Today, most of people in the world think that God is one and only if He should exist.  But most of their ancestors centuries ago believed existence of  gods of the sun, the moon, the sea, the water, the death, the love, etc.   Unless Christianity and Islam have prevailed in the world, most of people in the world today must believe existence of  gods of the sun, the moon, the sea, the water, the death, the love, etc. like ancient Greeks, ancient Egyptians, ancient Europeans, etc.

So, the greatest contribution of ancient Hebrews to the human history is their belief in the one and only God, though they thought the God is God for their tribe.

Even if we believed there are various gods who sometimes behave like human beings, we would be able to build pyramids and create a kind of Greek philosophy or Indian philosophy but we should not be able to create the modern science.

However, we cannot prove that God is the one and only in a scientific manner or any other manners.  But, probably, there are no scientists who believe in polytheistic religion.

It is also mysterious that the one and only God allows three different religions that all have faith in Him.
