All those who pretend to give answer to the purpose of life, and why the universe was created, may be answered with the words of India's oldest known book, the Rig-Veda: "Who knows exactly, and who shall in this world declare, whence and why this creation took place? The gods are subsequent to the production of this world: then who can know whence it proceeded? He who in the highest heaven is the ruler of this universe--he knows or does not know!"
