Who then knows whence it has arisen,
Whence this emanation hath arisen,
Whether God disposed it, or whether He did not,-
Only He who is its overseer in highest heaven knows.
Or perhaps He does not know.
- Rig Veda (creation hymn)
If you watched Bharat ek Khoj, you might remember the same hymn played in hindi in its title song.
Wahi sachmuch me jaanta, ya nahi bhi jaanta.
Its surprising that thousands of years ago, people were willing to admit they didn't know a thing about God or creation. I don't know where that honesty disappeared.
They must have gone woefully wrong with their kids ;) .
