Is there Evidence that a God or Gods Exist?
Debate Rounds (4)
I believe that there is no evidence that is veritably true that a God or Gods exist, any Theist of any Religion can argue against me, I am open to anyone debating me.
Good Luck to you!
Though god may not be real (I am an atheist too)
Doesn't mean that there isn't any evidence saying God is real
Otherwise any argument over if god is real would be boring and would end fast.
The Earth...its size is perfect. The Earth's size and corresponding gravity holds a thin layer of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending about 50 miles above the Earth's surface. If Earth were smaller, an atmosphere would be impossible, like the planet Mercury. If Earth were larger, its atmosphere would contain free hydrogen, like Jupiter. Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human life.
The Earth is located the right distance from the sun. Consider the temperature swings we encounter, roughly -30 degrees to +120 degrees. If the Earth were any further away from the sun, we would all freeze. Any closer and we would burn up. Even a fractional variance in the Earth's position to the sun would make life on Earth impossible. The Earth remains this perfect distance from the sun while it rotates around the sun at a speed of nearly 67,000 mph. It is also rotating on its axis, allowing the entire surface of the Earth to be properly warmed and cooled every day.
And our moon is the perfect size and distance from the Earth for its gravitational pull. The moon creates important ocean tides and movement so ocean waters do not stagnate, and yet our massive oceans are restrained from spilling over across the continents.
These are one of the reasons why god may exist
that doesn't mean that God is real but that up there is clearly evidence!
Lets say, hypothetically, that the chances of all of this happening are one in ten trillion, absolutely minuscule odds, that would be a %0.000,000,000,000,000,01 chance of occurring, about as close to near zero as possible in the human imagination, however, because there are 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (One Hundred Billion) Galaxies i the visible universe, with an average of 1,000,000,000 (One Billion) stars in each galaxy, then that would be a grand total of one billion trillion, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the visible universe, which means that there are, even with those unlikely minuscule odds, good reason to believe that nearly these exact same circumstance have happened in 100 other places across the universe, thus making this place extremely special, but not the one and only place for these situations to be replicated, thus making the existence of God unnecessary to explain these conditions, we just happen to be living on an extremely rare gem of a place, but not the one and only place like this.
There is a huge difference between "proof" and "evidence". Incontrovertible evidence is not evidence at all... it is a proof. Evidence is an indication of what the truth may be, and it exists on both sides of any issue. In a trial evidence is presented by both sides, and the verdict is based on what the jury finds has more truth. There is evidence for the existence of God, there is evidence against the existence of God. Scientific evidence for God certainly does exist and yes, that evidence is verified by other scientists. However unlike a trial there is no "jury" and no verdict. It is up to the individual to decide what is sufficient for him/her to accept or reject the belief in God. Likewise, what is evidence for one may not be evidence for another. Many people believe because of logic, many people believe because of science, but also many people believe because of the personal events of their lives. It is not important to them that someone else accepts their personal experience as evidence of God, but nor should personal experience be denied. The experience is sufficient for the individual to believe.
Evidence can and does exist in many different fields. In science even Stephen Hawking has said that "the universe appears to have been finely tuned to allow for life". It has been mentioned about the incredible impossible odds for a planet to support life. In psychology it has been found that rather being born with a moral blank slate babies are in fact born with an intact moral system. A 3 year study conducted in more than 20 nations by researchers from Oxford University found that humans are predisposed to believe in God and in an afterlife. In mathematics as reported in the Icarus journal it has been found that terrestrial DNA contains a code or signal that could ONLY have been the result of a super-intelligence.
There are many, many more bits of evidence of God in numerous many different categories.
