The Theory of Two Gods
When I was a child, a teacher asked me about why there is one God? I was perplexed, surprised because, until the age of 16 years, I was never taught about God and its existence. Though living in Muslim country, people were considered never to raise a question about God and religion. And even I heard thinkers and philosophers to be tagged as blasphemous who talked about God out from the verses of Quran or religion. People in the religious country were never allowed to think in that way.
But when I have taken an interest in learning about knowledge, God, Religion and all of that which I can learn, it seems a lot of ideas are coming and penetrating through my mind. Yesterday when I was learning about psychology, the theory or proposition of two Gods came into my mind. Though I believe in the absolute unity of God which means, there is only one God, and nobody shares his virtues or power.
My teacher taught me that there is only one God, why because if there are two gods, then there is a possibility that two gods fight each other on a matter where they don’t settle, or they have a difference of opinion or disagreement. For example, If there are two Gods then If God A wants to send showers in the east side but God B wants to send showers on the West side then there is the possibility of difference and fight between both of them. The angel of rain (Michael as per Islam) where will go and shower the rain? Matter starts here!!!! I was convinced in childhood that teacher seemed to be perfect on this matter and his knowledge was vast enough to justify and convince a class of 60 students that there is one God that is why the world is full of peace though there is yet no peace or harmony on this earth.
But there comes another thought after 15 years, for example, if a home is run by father and mother who are universally accepted two guardians of the home, who think harmoniously for most of the matters and settle issues and problems of the home which is a small planet for them. So if they can collaborate and decide major questions, issues and problems then why not two gods can decide the matters of this small planet or earth.
I can see that sometimes two parents cannot decide a matter peacefully. Therefore, they fight with each such as sometimes it happens, father throws plates dishes or anything which is possible to show anger. Or mother sometimes fights with children or destroys some mugs or any part of the home which implies that they both sometimes damage their own home.
But in case of Gods, if they disagree, they can bring earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, droughts or any other catastrophe resulting damage to earth which is their own home or planet. Hence when these two Gods are angry with each other, they damage the earth. It is happening because of disagreement between both of two gods. Therefore there may be the possibility of two Gods.
Though I am a firm believer in one God, but my question remains open to new researchers and scholars.
