This is a scientific analysis of how beliefs of humans are related to the environmental conditions where the ideologies originate.
The Middle East is essentially a desert which compared to other regions of the world is devoid of greenery, devoid of most species of animals, devoid of natural beauty, scorching heat during the day and cold in the night. The ideologies which originate from the desert are also barren like the desert.
India is a fertile country with greenery, many species of animals and plants, natural beauty including water falls, and moderate temperatures. The ideologies which originate from India are fertile like the land.
Knowledge on God based on the ideologies which originate from the desert is barren like the desert. He is completely unknown, unseen, and unproven.
God is completely known and described in the Vedic scriptures.
The plants which grow in the desert are devoid of any juices. The concept of God based on the ideologies which originate from the desert makes God devoid of any juices. He is devoid of any personal relationship with the living entities.
All the living entities can enjoy the juice (rasa) of a personal relationship with the Supreme.
There are five main ways of enjoying the juice (rasa) of a relationship with the Supreme:
1. One can worship Krishna and enjoy the affection of service unto Him (santa-rasa)
2. One can be a personal servant of Krishna, enjoying the affection of personal service unto Him (dasya-rasa)
3. One can be a friend of Krishna, enjoying the affection of friendship (sakhya-rasa)
4. One can be a guardian or parent of Krishna, enjoying parental affection (vatsalya-rasa)
5. One can dance with Krishna, enjoying His personal affection (madhura-rasa)
Lord Krishna is very merciful and loving and He proves this by satisfying the desires of His devotees to associate with Him in a personal relationship.
The plants in the desert have a short lifespan. The ideologies which originate from the desert also have a short lifespan of at most a few thousand years.
The knowledge which originates from the fertile land of India is eternal. The Vedic knowledge is eternal and existing in this universe since its creation, some 155.522 trillion years ago. The Vedic knowledge was last written down more than 5000 years ago. Except for the Vedic civilization, no other civilization has existed for more than a few thousand years. All the non-Vedic civilizations existing today will become extinct like the millions of others civilizations before them in the 155.522 trillion years since creation.
There are very limited species of living beings in the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert also have limited knowledge, only one book.
There were billions of verses in the Vedic scriptures, but most of the knowledge has been lost due to a number of reasons including destruction by the followers of desert ideologies (invaders in India). Currently there are more than 810,000 verses left in the Vedic scriptures. The essence of all Vedic knowledge is the Bhagavad-Gita, the words of a proven and seen God in person.
The plants in the desert are limited to the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert are limited to this tiny planet.
The Vedic knowledge is universal, existing in millions of other universes. Lord Krishna has appeared and performed His pastimes in millions of universes. He last appeared in His original form just 5000 years ago, and in His form as Lord Caitanya, 500 years ago.
Many species of plants in the desert are annuals, they only appear once. The ideologies which originate from the desert are annuals, they are only created once and never to be re-created/re-spoken.
Lord Krishna has appeared more than 18,000 times so far in the current cosmic cycle and in each and every appearance He performed His transcendental pastimes, including speaking the Bhagavad-Gita.
The desert is the ideal home for cold blooded living beings like lizards. The ideologies which originate from the desert are also cold blooded. They advocate slavery, adultery, rape, and stealing.
The Vedic scriptures DO NOT advocate slavery, adultery, rape, and theft. The Vedic followers have never made humans into slaves, never stolen any property belonging to others, and have never attacked other nations. In fact, the desert ideology followers have attacked India, raped the women, destroyed Temples, and stolen her land.
The desert living beings like lizards and plants are devoid of color. The desert ideology followers are also devoid of color. Their women are covered in darkness (black).
The Vedic followers are most colorful, and only in the Vedic culture there is a festival of colors which is celebrated once a year.
The desert has very limited supply of vegetables and fruits, and so the species of living beings in the desert are mainly carnivores. One animal is food for another animal. The ideologies which originate from the desert are only for the carnivores, flesh eaters.
In the fertile land of India, there are many varieties of fruits and vegetables. There is absolutely no need to eat flesh. The Bhagavad-Gita advocates only a vegetarian based diet for humans. The animals are food only for other animals.
In the desert, there is no point in looking far out, because there is nothing but sand. The species of living beings in the desert are short sighted, they can’t see too far out. The ideologies which originate from the desert are also for short sighted humans. They can’t see anything beyond their own tiny well. They think that their tiny well has all the water on the planet.
The Vedic followers are far sighted, they know that there is a vast ocean full of water on this planet, and also a vast ocean outside this planet. The Vedic scriptures contain historical information on this universe dating back to 155.522 trillion years and also give information on other universes. Lord Krishna has already appeared in millions of universes and the Vedic scriptures give information on what transcendental activities He performs in each of His appearances.
The desert is very harsh, and this is infused into the mentality of the species living in the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert also infuses harshness. The followers of these ideologies are full of hate, anger, and violence.
The Vedic followers are very fertile, full of love for all living beings. The Bhagavad-Gita is the only scripture on the planet which preaches that all living beings are brothers and sisters. Even the animals like cows are considered mothers, because they give humans their milk. In the Eyes of Lord Krishna, there is justice for all living beings, and this is administered through the Law of Karma. An eye for an eye is the punishment. If a human kills and eats an animal, the soul from that same human will be placed in the body of the same species of animals and then it will be his turn to be killed and eaten.
The harshness of the desert makes the living beings think they will die very soon. The ideologies which originate from the desert preach that the end is very near, these are the last days. They have been saying this for hundreds of years.
The Vedic scriptures give exact timing of the start and end of the universe and this information comes from the person who has created millions of universes, Lord Krishna. The Vedic followers follow the information passed down in disciplic succession, starting from Lord Krishna, and not base it on their own perception and life experiences. The total lifespan of the universe is 311.040 trillion years, of which 155.522 trillion years has passed and we have 155.518 trillion years left before the complete destruction of the universe.
In the desert there is no sound of the birds singing, because there are no singing birds. Mainly flesh eating vultures can be found in the desert. The ideologies which originate from the desert, are also soundless. They are against the beautiful sound of music, which softens the heart. The ideologies which originate from the desert ban music, making its followers stone hearted. Inducing them to wickedness, and barbaric acts of hate, rape, and murder.
In the fertile land of India, there are many species of birds which make beautiful sounds everyday. In particular, peacocks and sparrows. Lord Krishna is the best musician, He plays the flute. Music softens the heart, and is the element of love. Those without music are without love for others.
