God exists, we have given so many proofs. If the rascal cannot understand, what can be done? There is mother, there is children; where is the father? This is our argument. Mother, the earth is mother, and everything, these trees, we are all coming out of mother, mother nature. And who is the father? What is the answer? Now, what the atheist will say that there is no God? How they will say?


Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: If we could just introduce to them the chanting, they could be great yogīs, sitting chanting, and have so much free time. (laughter)

Prabhupāda: Just see, why this wood is dried up? Why?

Hari-śauri: There is no spirit soul in it.

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: It has been severed from the tree.

Hari-śauri: Cut off.

Prabhupāda: Yes, from the . . . it is out of touch from the original bark. Similarly, any civilization which is out of touch of God consciousness, that will dry up in due course of time.

Devotee (1): Yesterday, Svarūpa Dāmodara—we were speaking about the scientists—he said that they don't accept our proof that God exists as being any more conclusive than their proof that He doesn't exist.

Prabhupāda: Hmm?

Devotee (1): In other words, they don't accept that we have any proof that God exists. They say God doesn't exist.

Prabhupāda: God exists, we have given so many proofs. If the rascal cannot understand, what can be done? There is mother, there is children; where is the father? This is our argument. Mother, the earth is mother, and everything, these trees, we are all coming out of mother, mother nature. And who is the father? What is the answer? Now, what the atheist will say that there is no God? How they will say?

Rāmeśvara: They say the earth is the mother and the father.

Prabhupāda: Huh?

Rāmeśvara: They say the earth is the mother and the father.

Prabhupāda: No. That is another nonsense. Because you cannot see, practically, the mother and father is the same person. That is not . . . father is different.

Puṣṭa Kṛṣṇa: Why doesn't life come from the concrete then?

Prabhupāda: No, apart from that, mother and father cannot be one; they must be two, from our practical experience. So how can I accept a rascal like you that father and mother the same?

Tamāla Kṛṣṇa: But we see that Lord Brahmā is born from the same father and mother.
