Does God exist? Is there evidence for the existence of God? How do we know God exists?
People claim to reject God’s existence because it is “not scientific” or “because there is no proof.”

The existence of God cannot be proved or disproved. The Bible says that we must accept by faith the fact that God exists: “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). If God so desired, He could simply appear and prove to the whole world that He exists. But if He did that, there would be no need for faith. “Then Jesus told him, ‘Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’” (John 20:29).Source(s): TR

This same question goes on forever... It is as old as religion it self. People seem to claim there is no evidence of God when they don't search for it. Is that how we find if something exists? Do I find the existance of your brain by judging by what I see? I see there are christians out there giving clues of natural evidence I know where their going but let's get deeper to what they mean....
This question has been taken seriosly by many Famous scientists and these scientist are looking for naturall evidence of Gods existance.
1)“The human mind is not capable of grasping the Universe. We are like a little child entering a huge library. The walls are covered to the ceilings with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written these books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. But the child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books - a mysterious order which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects.”
2)“God does not play dice with the universe.”
“A little science estranges a man from God. A lot of science brings him back.”
"Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance."
There are many other Famous Scientists who believe in the existance of God such as Galileo Galilei, Rene Descartes, Nicholas Copernicus, Michael Faraday and more. Why do I bring this up? What these scientist believe is "Something can make Something and Nothing can only make Nothing
Athiesm in the fisrt place believes Nothing made everything. (A scientific impossibility.) They say, "...space and time both started at the Big Bang and therefore there was nothing before it."

It is the same as believing 0+0=1, 0-0=1, 0x0=1,0/0=1,etc. which is illogical. Nothing(0) comes from nothing(0). Makes sence?
There is a universe and it is finite and of limited duration.
The universe had a beginning.
Anything that had a beginning must have been caused by something.
Therefore the universe has a creator.
The bible states the number of God is "1" a Begining value. 1+1=2, 1-1=0, 1x1=1, 1/1=1
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. -Ephesians 4:6
1 represents creator. All numerical value adding up beggins from number 1
There is numerology "behind the bible" which has been studied by Isaac Newton
The proof of his existance is also found all around us from the amount of heat and light from the sun could only be obtain with the perfect distance of the earth as Newton said so as the moons perfect size and distance to make important ocean tides so it doesnt spill in continents and the perfection of the earths size making it have the perfect gavitational pull, chance or designed?
All designs imply a designer. There is great design in the universe. Therefore there must be a Great Designer of the universe.
How do we know the universe is designed and not just a random event?
1. Complex design such as watches, buildings and paintings require a creator.
2. The greater the design requires a greater designer. Beavers make log dams but they could never make a Grand Coulee dam. A million monkeys sitting at typewriters for a million years could never type Hamlet, but Shakespeare did it on the first try.
3. “Complex design” means specified complexity. Crystals have specificity but not complexity. A crystal's information put into letters would be abababab Random polymers have complexity but no specificity. A random polymer's information put into letters would be: jfgakreutiohtpaiohr.
Living cells have both complexity and specificity. This kind of specified complexity is never produced by natural laws. The living cell information put into letters would be this sentence: DNA is the most specific complex code known to man.Source(s): http://www.evanwiggs.com/articles/Does%20God%20Exi...

I have actually designed a scientifically based study through which you could prove the existence of God. There are numerous scientific tests where science will first theorize about the effect of something (especially something they cannot see ie the God particle) but they have designed tests for based on how they predict it should react.
Well in the Bible God gives us various different commandments that he promises various blessings for if you obey.
So there is your study you take and compile a list of God's commandments and then a list of the associated blessings. From there you get a group of volunteers to obey those commandments for the specified reason and watch to see if the blessings come into their life.
For accuracy you would want a large sample group as you easily would run into problems with people not properly following the specific commandment, and you would also need to follow their progress over many years, possibly decades to really get proper results.
From there you compile the data and you have your proof of God.
What is funny is that in various ways there have been literally billions of people who have conducted this experiment over the course of their lives, and have come to the conclusion that God was real, but because there was not a scientist who was there running the experiment and the data has not been compiled, the idea is rejected.
However mathematically what is the probability that every single person who ran that experiment in their own personal lives got it wrong. Considering that you only need 2 successful tests to prove something. The initial test and one to prove it is repeatable, then out of all of those billions of people what are the chances that you could not find 2 people that recorded enough data to generate a report for our scientific study right now.
The reality is that God does exist and the scientific evidence is out there. The idea that billions of people over the course of thousands of years were all delusional and were all wrong is pure arrogance and has no basis in science. To dismiss that much of a body of evidence, however circumstantial it may or may not be, is to dismiss a huge wealth of knowledge on a subject.

Well from what I have read in the answers to this question I guess there is no proof at all.
So the answer to your question of Does God exist seem to point to ,,,, a big NO
You would think some one some where would have come up with some proof for some god by now???

My study and study shows that non secular everybody isn't precisely rocket scientists (or mathematicians) they have a tendency to be lower than common intelligence, and also tend to be extra violent than non-believers. at times, the extra violent the guy, the extra non secular they're. i think that very nearly all of religious everybody is properly lower than common intelligence. non secular believers struggle through from a common psychological ailment. If we assume the universe replaced into created, then it’s sensible to assume there replaced right into a author. That’s thus far as technology has advanced today, yet only seem how far faith has advanced. faith states (reality) there replaced right into a author referred to as God, that God nevertheless exists, God also created places referred to as Heaven & Hell, God wrote an training e book referred to as the Bible, God will banish evil people to Hell, God will deliver reliable those who keep on with the Bible to heaven, that people stated interior the Bible (like Jesus) will go back to Earth, and an finished raft of different statements of reality. That’s properly, non secular reality, no longer assumptions. Now tell me surely, if technology doesn’t even recognize yet even if the universe replaced into created or no longer, yet non secular believers state: “no longer purely replaced into the universe created through God, the following’s a great deal extra info and info to bypass with it, what do you imagine? both non secular believers only have shiny imaginations or struggle through from a common psychological ailment. i imagine common sense and common sense would propose that non secular believers are mentally handicapped. enable p = there is not any info of God's existence. enable q = God does no longer exist. enable r = p --> q Is r authentic?

I am probably going to get many thumbs down for this but I don't care. The proof is everywhere. How the planets are perfectly aligned and all the beautiful nature and seas around us and the weather changes, etc. That's your proof. What more proof do you need? Because those things didn't just pop out of nothing. There had to have been a Complex, Mighty Creator. But apparently people will still say He doesn't exist because they can't see Him..It's called faith but the proof is all around you. If you have your doubts about Him existing or not that's at least logical than saying 100% sure that He doesn't exist when you don't even know and don't have ANY proof.

Yes it does.
Its that goodness in you n me n in all others..... our conscientiousness... that guides us to do good and keep away from all thats evil.
The evidence of existence of God is the goodness that still prevails in the big bad world.... in the hearts of the kind n generous....... who lend a helping hand to the suffering n those in pain.
How do we know God exists?.... you see God in every human being you meet.... in his/ her friendly smile.... the kind acts.... the little gestures that make u feel oh so nice n comfortable... n at times on top of de world! Temples of worship hold only the idols. The real God resides in the hearts of each one of us.
So buddy, stop luking around n luk within yerself...............

Is atheism real? As it's based on the same faith as the Christians...
In fact: Everyone requires faith in an invisible entity (creator of this universe)...
The "the god delusion" book by number one atheist, Richard Dawkins... later on doesn't want to be known as an atheist anymore and has rejected the label, to become agnostic, unsure if there's a God and he also now believes there was Jesus in history and considers him a great and intelligent person. The more you study and explore, the more harder it becomes to deny, why?
Everyone requires faith to function. Just easier to ignore for atheists, but their logic/faith happens to be the same.
Considering that time is an illusion only binded to this universe due to the fact it is decaying and therefore limited. If God is outside this time/universe: He was always there, a starting point. If not, another invisible entity is required...
Magnetism -> Rules of Gravity -> Science can't explain the root cause.
Electricity -> Energy -> Science can't explain the root cause.
Anything in this universe, living, static, solid, liquid or gas, etc -> all are formed by Atoms -> Particles -> Science can't explain the root cause.
What science can't explain comes down to how it started... the Big Bang?
The big bang theory was actually originally modeled by a Christian, before a university created into what we now know it as. He based his work off Albert Eistein's theory of relative. Who in turned said he added a static variable because he didnt believe it was correct which he later considered the biggest mistake in his life. Eistein later himself even said to his class why it's more logical to believe in a creator of the universe. While he wasn't religious, he considered Atheists as blindsided.
Athiesm is now left with a faith they believing in, created by the very people that they mock and an intelligent person that even said they where possibly wrong and illogical to rule it out. The Big Bang Theory has a logical holes in it, which Atheists fulled up and proved by believing in something also invisible known as Dark Matter/Energy.
Atoms are scientify known as the universe's Building Blocks. Atoms are the basis of chemistry. They are the basis for everything in the Universe, living, static, solid, liquid, or gas, etc. Everything can be broken down into atoms. Sure, atoms can be broken down more into having protons, neutrons and electrons. However, Atoms are the smallest particles that can exist alone.
Behind the atoms, is an invisible force which holds, shapes and mounds them. Eistein chased this near the end of his life, but failed to find it - it was later discovered in 2012 as Dark Matter and Dark Energy.
Basically, dark matter cannot be seen -- scientists can only estimate where it is based on gravitational effects on what they can see. Yet they believe in makes up at least 86% of the universe?
Also black holes are heavy dense objects containing Dark Matter, which can't be seen via the naked eye. Because no light can get out, people can't see black holes. It's a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape, and get's sucked into it disappearing like magic. The largest black hole detected called "supermassive", has mass that are more than 1 million suns together! They consider them the mystery of how the universe was formed.
Therefore both have faith in something invisible which happens to work the same way. Which created the entire universe, reachs out and touchs it all, shapes, mounds and forms it, recycles the particles, controls the gravity and is even inside us and all around us.
Maybe this has something to do with a realm we have yet to understand and discover? Well, it at least says most of this universe, is entirely outside our understanding and invisible to us.
Galaxy Seeds. Scientists believe that, if the Big Bang is true (first, there was nothing, then, BANG, something came into being), then temperature “ripples” should exist in space, and it would be these ripples that enabled matter to collect into galaxies. To discover whether these ripples exist, the Cosmic Background Explorer – COBE – was launched in 1989 to find them, with the findings being released in 1992. What COBE found was perfect/precise ripples that, sure enough, enable galaxies to form. So critical and spectacular was this finding that the NASA lead for COBE, said, “If you’re religious, it’s like looking at God.” Note: He was the same man who previously wrote, "I am a deeply religious nonbeliever".
Therefore everyone must believe in the invisible and have some type of faith (in unexplained invisible magic which created the universe or God - why would you mock one, when your logic is the same) - else we are just blind and not willing to discover what's more to life.Source(s): Thumb down to deny your own logic :)

Funny, they believe God without evidence yet they want evidence in other matters of life, hypocrites i tell ya, God will punish them
