What Proves To You God Does Exists?

Post by Hmmm »

I realize that many have no faith in God, however many do and I thought that discussing the reasons you believe would be interesting. As far as the definition of God goes, that would include a Creator and or other external force that is responsible for all life.

If you feel the need to mock or belittle those who have a faith, than create your own thread.


If you are genuinely unsure due to some unanswered questions, feel free to ask them, sincere ones only, not TROLL ones.

One of my many reasons I feel God does exist is the sheer variety of life on Earth and that it displays so much wisdom. Can wisdom come from nothing? I don't believe so.

I also feel that the jump from nonliving to living is too great a leap. A first cause kind of thing. The single cell is far to complex to somehow just occur on its own. In order for it to duplicate itself, it also requires two amazing processes to be already working and complete. RNA/DNA.

Also the building blocks that supposedly existed before the first cell came to being such as proteins and atoms to name two are also far too amazing to come from thin air.

Off topic remarks by god fearing people?
Hmmm,if science were to create DNA as they are almost there with RNA.
Would this put a shadow on your belief in a god?

Let just say for me to believe in him/her, he/she would have to show up in person and do some pretty amazing things!
Not some BS Oral Roberts stuff either.

If science created RNA/DNA without trying and no intervention than you would have a point. As it is if they did, it would be purposefully done. That's my point it takes intervention and purpose to create. Thank you for your question.

What was the intervention/purpose that created god?
God always was/is.....if you can say that,can we not say that of of the building blocks of life/proteins/atoms....?

Cannot answer that. I don't believe we have the capacity to understand the makeup of our Creator.

So back on track, my beliefs are not on trial, this thread is about YOUR beliefs in God/Creator/Life giver whatever you call him.

Fair enough.
I have no beliefs in a creator,so I'm out.Just curious why people believe what they do.
I will add though that I believe life is a cosmic fluke that happens/has happened countless times within thee universe.

Most people of faith I know don't need proof of god's existence.

We don't know how the universe started but we know it exists because we can see it at night when we look up. I will accept that a god exists when there is evidence one does. I still have not seen any.
