Black holes are irrelevant to the topic.
I know. We could start by talking about a particular pseudoscientist who has formed a cult and subscribes to a weird form of karma within a cosmic consciousness. His ideology is definitely quasi-theist. A spiritual ("non-physical") caste system is implied. It is all poppycock. I have checked out his literature to know that he even misquoted great scientists and philosophers (either lying in paraphrasing or the context in which the words were used). I'm talking about Thomas Campbell and his TOE (which is no theory at all).
Let me also make it clear to many out there who got the wrong idea about Einstein: as much as he spoke of "God," he was not referring to a personal one. Einie was in awe of the universe. He shared the same sentiments as Spinoza. For all intents and purposes, Einstein was really an atheist.
We should be glad that God, as portrayed by the great monotheisms of the world, does not exist. There is no Yahweh, or Allah, or Jehovah. We should be glad that there is no celestial dictatorship for obvious Orwellian reasons. Just check out Nineteen Eighty-Four and you'll know what I mean.
No God means no Big Brother; no celestial North Korea (as Hitchens put it once); no thought crime; no fear of the leader; no compulsion to love the leader no matter what he does to you and your loved ones; no compulsion to believe without question; no threat of eternal damnation; no boring eternal heaven to drive you insane etc.
I don't think anybody wants to worship a supernatural being who creates you sick and orders you to be well. Those who feel the need to do so enjoy being servile. The relationship between God and His followers is a sadomasochistic one.
So, I say the following with the same level of certainty about the absence of fairies: There is no God.
