Interesting correlation between God and light in major world religions...

Interesting correlation between God and light in major world religions...
Hello all, Smile
 
I have come across some observations which depict an interesting correlation between God and light in the major world religions....


In Hinduism, the Vedas and Hindu scriptures considers the Shivalingam as representing a cosmic pillar of light. The Dharmic monotheistic sect the

 The Upanishads and enlightened masters have also described God/Brahman to be self-luminous.

In Islam, Allah has 100 name's, and one of them is Alnoor ( the Light).

“God is light,” says Jesus Christ (1 John 1:5), in the Bible in Christianity.

In Judaism, Psalm 76:4 says of God, “You are radiant with light.”

So this correlation between God and light, is a common denominator in these four major world religions.

Imo, the fire worship in Zoroastrianism may be illustrating this correlation between God (Ahura Mazda ) and light as well, light being emitted by the fire.

I would say this may provide more proof that the major world religions are identical in their core, with only superficial differences on the outside creating cause for extremism and conflict. The fact that different religions consider light to be a charecterestic of God may show  that there may be an entity termed God which have a vital place in the multiverse and existence, though He or She is seen to be mere a superstition by atheists. Hence God as an entity may require more research and study to get a better perspective or understanding on Him or Her.  Read

It's of no surprise. Light dispells darkness. And darkness is dangerous. Predators lurk in the dark. This goes from primordal times, I guess. From way before organized religions.

Something emitting light is a god? Or a potential god? That is the epitome superstition.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity.

Humans have correlations around the world because humans are more alike than they are different. Primitive scientifically inept groups are primitive scientifically inept groups no matter which patch of Earth they call home.


Thanks for coming out, there are no door prizes. Have yourself a wonderful day. Better luck next time.

I found that the Upanishads were a very interesting read. (I'd recommend them to anybody.) But I have the feeling I took away something very different than the OP. Maybe I'm wrong about that.

Buddhism:
(Tipitaka / Pali canon)

"Monk, we also don't know where Brahma is or in what way Brahma is. But when signs appear, light shines forth, and a radiance appears, Brahma will appear. For these are the portents of Brahmas appearance: light shines forth and a radiance appears".

"When this was said the Geat Brahma said to the monk " I, monk, am Brahma, the Great Brahma, the Conquerer, the Unconquered, the All-Seeing, All-Powerful, The sovereign Lord, The Maker, Creator, Chief, Appointer and Ruler, Father of all that have been and shall be".
