Tao 4:04 - The God’s Man

“Come in,” said the priest at the temple, “Have not seen you around here before. Are you new to this part of town?”

“Yes,” said the Tao, looking around the empty temple, “I used to be in a different part of Galaxy before. But that was eons ago.”

The priest let that pass, perhaps out of sheer incomprehension. “I am about to start the Aarti soon. You can watch. If you like, you can donate some money in the box over there,” said the priest.

The Tao dropped some notes into the box with the word “Charity” written in big letters. “Do you believe in God?” asked the Tao, hoping to start a conversation.

“What kind of question is that?” the priest was taken aback, “Of course! Of course I believe in God. It is he who created everything, including you and me.”

“And how do you know that?” asked the Tao.

“It’s written in God’s books,” the priest was dismissive.

“I have read some other books that say that there is no God. They say that the world was created from a Big Bang. Whose books should I believe?” the Tao asked.

“My books are better than yours,” said the priest.
