Did the tree precede the seed or seed precede tree? Did hen succeed egg or egg succeed hen? What is the origin of all living creatures? What is the origin of the world? Whence this universe? That is the question? The answer to this question seems to be held in utmost secrecy, obscurity, mystery. Did the cause appear first or the effect? What is the primeval cause? Can there be a causeless cause. To appease the agitated mind religious prophets gave a name to that causeless cause. The name was God.
