"Although there are some people who profess to be atheists, the Bible indicates that there is no such thing. Everyone knows that God exists, even though some may verbally deny it (even to themselves). Romans 1:18-21 teaches that God has made evidence of His existence so abundantly obvious to all mankind that there is no excuse for denying Him. It’s no surprise then that there are many lines of evidence that confirm this biblical truth."
Here is Romans 1:18-21.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
"...From the very time of creation, men should have seen the evidence of God’s existence and His work in the marvelous universe He had created, for 'God hath shewed it unto them' (Romans 1:19). 'The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament sheweth His handywork' (Psalm 19:1). Since these things should have been seen and understood by men from the very time of the creation of the world, it is clear that the latter did not take place billions of years before men appeared on earth, as evolutionists and progressive creationists have alleged. Men and women have been in the world ever since its very beginning, and all should have recognized the reality of God, even before God gave His written revelation. Those who apply uniformitarian reasoning and natural processes to deduce a multi-billion year age for the world are merely seeking a means to avoid the overwhelming evidence of the special creation of all things in the beginning, and are 'without excuse.'"
There is plenty of evidence for a living God. It is all around you called nature. The very fact of its existence shows there was something more than a "big bang" at work. However, not all humanity wishes to believe, so they convince themselves that the world was made by chance, so as not to admit their error.
Consider the age of the Bible, with both OT and NT -- it has remained ostensibly true for about 2000 years. This is actually the fulfilling of God's promise. Something that can't exist actually fulfilled a promise to not let the word diminish? Weird!
The question of if Jesus lived has never been a question, as the reliability of the gospels is beyond question for any ancient text. John was actually a witness to the crucifixion!
Anything else? Sure, there are books written on the topic quite extensibly.
Let's look at some other questions then, how might science prove the Bible is false? Well, it can't. Science has an innate weakness in that it can only disprove a hypothesis. Yet, people scream, "The bible was written by humans, so it's flawed and fairy tales." Who writes science books? Oh yeah, there's the scientific method, but as we know from studying Near East history, Science won't change a well established facet of research, such as the age of the dynasties, even when we know for a fact the time line of Egypt doesn't match with that of other near east cultures. How do we know for sure the earth is 4.5 trillion years old when radio metric dating can't go back that far? Oh, the mountains, right? Hey, the Himalayan mountains, even with their current uplift, are still shrinking, and if they were 450 million years old as we're told, then they would be ground to pebbles by now. This doesn't add up, but we're not changing the theories. Why not?
Now that's a great question to ask since science operates on the principal that patterns of the present are also accepted as the patterns of the past as well...
Look to your left. What do you see? I see life. Life is beautiful. Yet people can not see the evidence before them. People say we where made from a star. How can that be true? Do you look like a star? Does your Mom look like a star? Most likely no, but if you do I am sorry. Anyways back to the evidence... Have you ever heard of the bible?! It is in every hotel in America! It is a written documentary of God! Look around you moron see Him!
From the simple argument that since anything that is real is better than that same thing imagined and God is the best thing then God must exist, or the arguments of motion, causataion, contingency, degrees and the theological argument. And then the watch maker analogy,the idea that since the world is well designed it was designed, the analogy being if you found a watch lying on the ground you'd think who made this. And not to forget that theism has good odds as proved by Pascal's wager.
God is real, I have experience of him, he is my father trust me. I have been put in this world with a purpose and God has set me this challenge. Additionally, If cells weren't allowed in school, then students wouldn't be allowed in school since students are made of cells.
Haven't you seen the world ..People walking , plants growing , sun rise and set , the way the earth rotates and the universe these are the signs of god's existence .Every thing has its own creator a cake , a dress everything !! Everything has it's own creator !! THEN WHY CANT THIS UNIVERSE!! Open your eyes and see and believe that god exists ''seeing is believing '' is a famous proverb but its only 10% true because if you see a cake ready on the table you did not see who made it so does that mean it does not have a creator ? Did the flour go by itself to the pot by an earthquake and mistakly somebody opened the fridge and the eggs fell down into the pot then the milk then the sugar and everything fell in it got mixed up by some another
natural disaster and got into the oven by another one disaster ?? Of course not you just did not see it . But you believe that somebody made it . Same like that everything in this universe is not my chance . Who gave you the soul to be alive who causes death to you?? God the almighty god !!
GOD can exist real as an axiom meaning it can be describe with a form of logical reason.This however become controversial as many religions that follow a direct belief in GOD also follow that there’s a false prophet of GOD as well.
Meaning there is a very real possibility that the mathematically real definition of GOD is indeed the one mentioned or if it is the false profit mention.
This fact, if true does not limit other interpretation.
I believe there is a God, and there is evidence for God. However, I don't see God as a specific personal deity as Classical Theism defines. I think if we look at evolution, philosophy, and the fine-tuning of our universe, we can easily come to a conclusion of at least Pantheism.
The bible. That's all the evidence you need. It was written years ago by many people who knew the truth, now. If you can get thousands of people to go along with a made up story of someone all powerful and knowledgeable and have the story passed down for millions of years, then you might have a chance of coming up with evidence to prove he's 'not real'. There's multiple stories on things he has done for all of us humans and for you to doubt that is truly misfortunate. Who has the time to make up things/stories like that anyway? How else would life be made anyways? Especially if you believe in the big bang theory, then how did earth become so smooth and have water and plants if it was supposedly made up of dust particles and rocks?? The only logical answer for this all is God.
Believe in the Word of God, for he is the Holy One.
Thank you for listening to my presentation, please look at the one above to see examples of the great (John_C_1812) to see that God is real in the words of the Bible. Thank the Lord John :) :)
Come on guys. Has there been any scientists that actually found a real piece of evidence that supports the existence of God? No. There hasn't. Christians rely on a book to help guide them through life. A book. You weren't alive when the original copy of the bible was written, so how do you know any of it's true? Exactly you don't know. You just believe in God and the bible because that's what you were taught. You think all everything that happened/happens on Earth is because of God. You're wrong. Very wrong. Everything that happens is because of science. SCIENCE.
Reminder: The bible is not evidence. Just like the concept of God, the bible was created by humans. They are simply an arrangement of fairytales that somehow revolve around a "God." The bible is as valid and realistic as the Harry Potter book series.
Additionally, there is actual evidence to prove that God did not make the universe, and man was not made in God's image, but from evolution. Many religious people fail to recognize this out of ignorance and a lack of willingness and openness to other possibilities of how the Earth and the creatures on it were made.
I am willing to accept the possibility of a God, but because of the lack of evidence (and the religious nutjobs which discourage me from looking deeper into religion), I remain agnostic.
There have been many religions that have been proven wrong by science, Christianity is one of them.
1. Jesus does not live in the sky because if he did we would see him
2. The Bible was changed by a bunch of morons
3. Not everything on Earth happens due to god
As a theist and an atheist. For many years. Since I was twelve, so... Thirteen years. Thirteen years of searching and I've found nothing but the same dozen or so arguments, the refutations of which are both easy to see and second nature to me because no matter how many times theists get spanked when they use those arguments, they think they can just click on a video on youtube that says "100% PROOF OF GOD'S EXISTENCE. ATHEISTS DON'T WANT YOU TO WATCH THIS!", get another same, old, stupid argument, sometimes worse than the original one they used, and think it'll end with their victory.
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE ABOUT THIS!!! It is possible, but there is not evidence about it, look at the news all of those people who die and come back to life, they say they go to heaven, but most of them are religous, and they probably did not see heaven.
We've advanced to the point where we have solid theories about where we came from, and why. And the only reason people are still stubborn like this, is because the rules of the religion are so embedded in their heads that it tunes out this way of logical thinking. If you found out that creationism was real, and there really was an all powerful being watching us right now, would you not want to get on his good side? I most definitely would. That's likely why the rules were originally created. They needed to find a good way to get on their gods good side, the consequence for failing is eternal hellfire. Honestly, it's clinging to that hope that keeps many in check. But it's the clinging that's slowing down our progression.
Usually the evidence is someone saying "just look around you." Which is not an argument for anything. Sometimes the bible is cited, but that's really a claim, not evidence.
And sometimes science is cherry picked, taken out of context, and misinterpreted to point to god or the bible, while ignoring all the facts that don't point to god. Apologists hold science to a ridiculously high standard while they give their own bad arguments a pass. If something in science is only 99% proven its thrown out in favor of the invisible man in the sky theory with zero evidence.
There is no empirical evidence to say that God exists. In fact, what God sanctions and favours is completely dependant on societal beliefs. God once used to favour sacrifice and polygamy, both of which are condemned now. God is essentially an easy answer to the most complex problems. For example, people historically didn't understand rain or the sun and claimed such things must require an omnipotent creator. Things like these are definitely understood now(thanks to science) and can be explained by a 7 year old. How on earth can someone who is alive tell me about what lies after death? The afterlife, I feel, is a belief that gives people's lives' hope and something to look forward to. I understand how essential it is to religious people but it doesn't make it true. I understand that the universe is ineffably complex, so much so that we have barely explored it. Its very existence is counter intuitive, but we can't simply say that because of its miraculous nature , there is some external force external being involved in its creation.
Let me set up a hypothetical situation for you right now. Say, for example, in this modern world, religion does not exist and the idea of god does not exist. One day I randomly come up to you and say, "It's a miracle, some guy that only i can see and talk to from the sky just told me that he created the Earth and controls everything that happens here." You would be sending me to a mental hospital if I told you that.
The fact that we still follow the bible is ridiculous to me. Scientists have been trying to prove the bible right for over a millennium and have failed. There is nothing in the bible that is accurate at all, a man born from a virgin, who then walks on water and creates wine from water. Just stop.
I hear the common argument "nature is proof enough." There is a thing called evolution that has been proven and accepted by every credible scientist. We have had experiments that have suggested how the first life got here, and it is accurate.
For millennia, people, even credible christian leaders have suggested that the second coming of Jesus is near. Why has he not come yet?
There is simply no evidence that a God exists.
"Proofs" of the existence of God are not rigorous, and if there were proofs, faith would have no value. But there is no evidence of the absence of a God either. Strictly speaking, the only rationally justifiable position is agnosticism: we do not know and we will never know if there is a God, so we should just stop talking about the issue and move on. Atheists and theists will not agree anyway, let's just accept the other's opinion (because both sides are opinions, no proof on either side).
