• Our complex universe

    God most certainly exists. Most atheists would say that there is no proof that God exists. But, there is also no proof that he doesn't. Theories are not 100% correct. Evolution is just a theory. Also, how do you explain all the complex systems we have like the ecosystem, the solar system, etc. A big bang in the middle of nowhere cannot just create something with a specific cycle like that. And the reason God lets evil happen is because he gave us the free will to choose right and wrong. God is not the one who causes sickness, poverty, or violence. Other humans do. Saying God is the cause of evil is like saying that guns kill people instead of people kill people. Simple as that. Free will gives us the power to decide whether we want to accept God's love and do the right thing. Miracles happen everyday out of nowhere. What would explain that? Not just a coinicidence.

  • It has to be.

    The universe is just too close to perfect for there not to be a god. What is the possibility that a universe is made, with a planet with all the necessities for life in the habitable zone in the solar system where if it was anywhere else it would be uninhabitable, for life to pop up and evolve without have been struck by a comet, asteroid etc. during the time the human race existed that would have utterly eradicated all of us? Along with that making us eventually intelligent enough to be able to be superior to all other life and make some of our own genetically modified organisms. If you say there is a 0.000000001% chance and that's still a possibility, science usually accepts the most probable am I correct? You can't falsify god, but evolution is just a theory that can be falsified.

  • Evolution and creation are not contradictory.

    The Big Bang seems to require a divine force. There is no way that everything can come out of nothing. The Big Bang could not have created itself. There are those who argue that God can not come out of nothing. Well, unlike the Big Bang, which is confined to the rules of modern physics, perhaps a God was unaffected by the laws of physics and independent of the world we live in. It, therefore, could have created itself, thus creating the Big bang. The Big Bang could not have done this since it, being from this universe, being the source of it, cannot be separate of it. God can. God must exist for the Big Bang to be true.

    There are even those who argue that God is Dead. He most certainly is not. The only way for the world to have justice is to have an ever present God. God has to support justice. God must be ever present in our lives in order to keep the order that God intended.

    God is alive and real

  • This Akiane's Story

    ""A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “really big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us. . . .""

    He was 4 years old how could he make this stuff up? How did he know about his older sister who died before she was born? I believe his story and so should you

  • God does exist

    How dare you say he not real he is more then real he created the earth he's was really there I feel I hear his voice everyday its like he answers my prayers he's more of a man than us so get your facts right otherwise you are not his child and if you do something wrong he will always love and forgive you if you don't think he's real then you have something wrong with you

  • Yes god does exist

    Most people would argue that god has not been see or that he has not provided proof that he does exist but the whole christian ideal is based on faith, not proof, meaning god doesnt want you to have to see him to believe him, rather he wants you to believe in him before you can see him in heavan

  • You don't need to see him believe in him

    God is so bright that you will be blind if you physically see him. If you ever read the Bible when Moses was climbing the mountain, he saw a dazzling light he would've been blind if it wasn't for the clouds. It is ok if you don't believe in him but just remember he still loves you. :)

  • Is God Real Or Not? Yes God is as Real as the Sun and the Moon.

    The argument starts with the major premise that where there is design, there must be a designer. The minor premise is the existence of design throughout the universe. The conclusion is that there must be a universal designer.

    Why must we believe the major premise, that all design implies a designer? Because everyone admits this principle in practice. For instance, suppose you came upon a deserted island and found "S.O.S." written in the sand on the beach. You would not think the wind or the waves had written it by mere chance but that someone had been there, someone intelligent enough to design and write the message. If you found a stone hut on the island with windows, doors, and a fireplace, you would not think a hurricane had piled up the stones that way by chance. You immediately infer a designer when you see design.

    When the first moon rocket took off from Cape Canaveral, two U.S. scientists stood watching it, side by side. One was a believer, the other an unbeliever. The believer said, "Isn't it wonderful that our rocket is going to hit the moon by chance?" The unbeliever objected, "What do you mean, chance? We put millions of manhours of design into that rocket." "Oh," said the believer, "you don't think chance is a good explanation for the rocket? Then why do you think it's a good explanation for the universe? There's much more design in a universe than in a rocket. We can design a rocket, but we couldn't design a whole universe. I wonder who can?" Later that day the two were strolling down a street and passed an antique store. The atheist admired a picture in the window and asked, "I wonder who painted that picture?" "No one," joked the believer; "it just happened by chance."

    Is it possible that design happens by chance without a designer? There is perhaps one chance in a trillion that "S.O.S." could be written in the sand by the wind. But who would use a one-in-a-trillion explanation? Someone once said that if you sat a million monkeys at a million typewriters for a million years, one of them would eventually type out all of Hamlet by chance. But when we find the text of Hamlet, we don't wonder whether it came from chance and monkeys. Why then does the atheist use that incredibly improbable explanation for the universe? Clearly, because it is his only chance of remaining an atheist. At this point we need a psychological explanation of the atheist rather than a logical explanation of the universe. We have a logical explanation of the universe, but the atheist does not like it. It's called God.

  • I am, therefore God is!

    Call it a feeling. I can feel that you like me or don't like me based on intuition, body language, and a look in the eye. Some things can be felt, but not seen. We have six senses to perceive the physical world. How many senses do we have to sense the spiritual world? Some people seem to have none. They can't perceive the spiritual world of God. Maybe we are not all born with the same abilities to perceive God. Maybe you have to take whatever you are given as your natural ability and develop it just like any other talent or skill. People are not all the same with the same abilities. If you can't feel God in your heart, in your soul, and in your mind than you are missing a lot. If you can't understand truth, love, forgiveness, kindness, and nurturing than you are subjected to fear, hate, not caring, not nurturing, and indifference, and meaninglessness. This can make life unbearable. I encourage you to try to feel things in the universe without being blinded by your 6 senses.

  • Existence and Pre-Big Bang

    Alright, so many people will say "God is fake, the Big Bang created everything". Well, that's not entirely wrong, but God caused the Big Bang. No, not an old man sitting on a cloud in the sky, an invcorporeal omnipotent god. Well, some have been dedicated enough to try to figure out the cause of the Big Bang. Some say magnetic fields, and some say micro-particles within that super small particle that was the universe, all jam-packed together. Yeah, ok, maybe these are so, but what created these things, and the things that made them. The answer is God, who always existed. Science and religion are one. Athiests claim to have no prpof, but if one has REAL faith and devotion to God, they experience that proof. It can't be found in a textbook.

    I rest my case. :)

  • God Never Was

    There are thousands of reasons to believe in god, but only one to not believe, the fact that no one has ever seen him. There's absolutely and irrevocably NO empirical evidence that there is a deity that controls the entire universe and is only interested in one tiny planet in an endless ocean of possible universes. Perhaps science will one day prove the existence of a god, but as of now, there is none so there's no reason to believe there is.

  • The year is 2015

    The year is 2015 millions of people have electricity, we use airplanes for travel and we have telescopes that can see galaxies that are millions of miles away and people still believe in god, spirits, exorcisms and ghosts? What a joke. Whenever people say something others say give me ''proof'' but for god you don't want proof, you just want to say god exists because he does. What an ignorant bunch of folks

  • Gravity is real because everyone falls the same; God is not real because nobody can agree whether they see God, or what God they see.

    The essential property of reality is that it works the same for everyone. Gravity is invisible but nonetheless real because everyone falls the same way. But God is only true for the hopeful and credulous; hope and credence in God have collapsed since the Bronze Age, and at no time in human history have people agreed on what God they've seen.

    God is and has always been many conflicted stories, many competing dogmas, many mythological histories, many incompatible opinions.

    God doesn't have a single, authoritative definition; divine existence arguments are at best speculative, and there's nothing like compelling material evidence for:

    * a single, universal creator;
    * a benign supernatural intervenor in human affairs;
    * a wise, eternal guide for humanity; or even
    * an interested supernatural observer.

    Given what we know about the universe, it's now implausible that humanity is its centrepiece. Evolution has now and forever disproven that humanity was created mature; and even if you imagine that humanity's evolution was designed, it's easy to show that such design does not convey moral authority over man. So essentially the key Bronze Age claims for God have now collapsed.

    God is at best a set of hopeful stories that nobody can agree on, much less prove. Whatever the truth proves to be, right now no claim about God can be verified by shared experience, so even if some cannot be proven false, none of them can be called real.

    And if no claim about God is real, then neither is God.

  • If there is one, he doesn't deserve worship.

    God or no God, why does it matter either way? I'm taking a lucky guess saying that there is no God. If i'm right, I didn't spend my entire life wasting time dedicating worship to something that isn't real.

    On the other hand if I'm wrong, I still win. This is because we live in a world where some people can get whatever the hell they want, where others are poor and starving. This either means that God has favorites, or that he doesn't care. Either way, he deserves no worship whatsoever, and therefore I believe that even if he is real, we should as humans boycott worshiping him.

    So God or no God, if you are an atheist, your doing the best possible thing either way.

  • One could say that there is a distinct possibility that God is real, but

    As the universe is governed by the natural laws we have observed thus far doesn't only make the concept of god extremely unlikely, but also superfluous. The argument that the universe appears as it would were no god(s) involved seems solid.

    Moreover, in any other area in the life of believers and non-believers alike, there have to be some shred of evidence before belief. But faith in a god must somehow precede evidence, how convenient... While many acts on impulse or intuition in secular cases as well, religions stand out from the crowd of putting real life decisions - those that require some form of proof in beforehand - on hold, while being completely fine with just faith as the sole justifications in regards to theistic cases. And, whenever a believer claims to have proof of a god being real, goalposts tend to be moved fairly quickly and logic gets arbitrarily misused.

    If a god fails the test of being confirmed real by a well researched theory, then one shouldn't give god's existence any special treatment of hoping it still to be a real entity. If a god exists, it's a part of nature as anything else, it have to be, since all natural laws tend to be contingent. If the effects of a god's existence isn't detectable in the way that the universe functions, then; either god isn't real or one have to withhold belief until sufficient evidence surfaces. So it goes with all supernatural claims, or should.

  • Mathematics disproves it.

    Engaging the belief that the abrahamic god created the universe ( which is by definition the set of all that exists / all that is real ) he would have to be outside this set to make it pop into existence, thus being outside the set of all that exists makes you not real. If the argument is that this god WAS in fact inside the set of the universe then he did not created it and his divinity is reduced to the given laws of this universe which state that there´s a finite amount of energy and matter and like all things in this set, given the time it will eventually cease to exist as we know it to transform into a different set of energy thus making it something else than god, and given the fact that this god has only been around human history for the past 3000 years of the 10,000 years of different cultures and civilisation I would object that this god already perished if the hypothesis that it existed in the beginning of times was found to be true. So, no god does not exist.

    There are many arguments against the faulty logic of believers, like for example the encounters of miracles, which, by mere statistics what can be count as a miracle happen every day to people of various religious faiths and beliefs or even to complete atheists all the time, which will lead to conclude that "miracles" are a) not tied exclusively to a given religion such as the Judeo-christian one or b) "miracles" are not at all that but the result of 7 billion lives having endless interactions with the world a day, thus making what would seem to be impossible events occur within the realms of an asymptote of possibility in which the probability of weird things happening is minimal but never zero.

    As before stated there are many arguments, like the faulty logic of believing in a book, the existence of other religions and so forth, to name a few, but I´d like to present them in an organised and valid manner in a proper debate about the subject.

  • I want to start off by saying that

    I do not want to offend people or their religions; however, in my opinion, one has the right to challenge another's beliefs. I also want to say that the people on the other side of this spectrum have reasonable arguments. So let me say this:

    1) Evolution is as much a theory as any religion. It's just that evolution is more scientifically valid. You could argue that scientific evidence proves some religions to be real, but - I'm sorry - evolution is just too confirmed by scientists to be false.

    2) I like what futurepresident7 said about religion and evolution coexisting, and I believe that is also open for debate. However, fp7 claims that "The Big Bang could not have created itself." A theory Stephen Hawking mentioned in a documentary contradicts to this; a theory coined "The Big Crunch." This theory states that the Big Bang was actually the remains of a previous universe, one that was sucked up into a black hole and crunched to the size of a tennis ball. Another person stated that there was no moment in time when the Big Bang happened; when the universe began, time also began thanks to a term called "space-time," which makes it clear that space and time are somehow welded together as one.

    3) LynneaRichelle mentioned that miracles happen every day. With seven billion people on the planet, I would assume so! God doesn't have to make things happen, you know. The probabilities are too high.

    4) Finally, mdepyper told a story about a 4-year-old boy who visited heaven. Now, if you read Guy P. Harrison's book "Think: Why you Should Question Everything," you'd know that people can often have false memories due to our brains making up facts unconsciously. Also, it is within our human nature to lie and make up stories. Who's to say that this four-year-old boy didn't do the same thing? As for all those facts he couldn't have possibly known "because he was four," watch this video to see what four-year-olds are actually capable of:

  • God does not exist.

    Francis Collins, the leader of the human genome project, a scientist who is Christian has very often said that the human species (that is the homo-sapiens) must be at least 100,000 years old.
    Richard Dawkins thinks its a quarter of a million but i don't need that for my point.
    For 98 thousand years, heaven watches earth with complete indifference. People are killing and raping each other with no remorse. And then all of a sudden decides "wait, we should stop this, this has gone too far" and condemns some poor man to a human sacrifice in the more illiterate part of the middle east.

  • Nope Nope Nope

    You either have a God who sends child rapist to rape children or you have a God who simply watches and says "When you are done I will punish you."

    If you could stop a person from raping a chlid, I would.
    Thats the difference between me and your God.
