Does God Really Exist?
There has been many controversies on whether or not God really exists. The main purpose of thisarticle is to prove the existence of God. There has been many theologians and philosophers who have tried to prove whether or not God exists -and my attemptis to bring the truth to a new light. Many just don’t know what to believe so they believe ridiculous things that don’t even make any sense. Let me begin thisarticle by talking about one of my favorite illustrationsof the "big bang theory" and how ridicules this sounds.
BANG! The theory of evolution of the Coca Cola can. Billions of years ago, a big bang produced a large rock. As the rock cooled, sweet brown liquid formed on its surface. As time passed, aluminum formed itself into a can, a lid and a tab. Millions of years later, red and white paint fell from the sky, and formed itself into the words “Coca Cola Classic.”
Of course, my theory is an insult of people’s intellect of those who believe in evolution because we all know that if the Coca Cola can is made, there must be a maker. If it is designed, there must be a designer. The alternative, that it happened by chance or accident, is really absurd.
Did you know that the eye has 40,000,000 nerve endings, the focusing muscles move an estimated 100,000 times a day, and the retina contains 137,000,000 light sensitive cells? Charles Darwin once said, “To suppose that the eye could have been formed by natural selection, seems I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” If man cannot begin to make a human eye, how could anyone in his right mind think that eyes formed by mere chance? In fact, man cannot make anything from nothing. We don’t know how to do it. We can re-create, reform, develop… but we cannot create even one grain of sand from nothing. Yet, the eye is only a small part of the most sophisticated part of creation - the human body.
George Gallup, the famous statistician once said, “I could prove God statistically; take the human body alone; the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen, is a statistical monstrosity.” Albert Einstein said, “Everyone who is seriously interested in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe - a spirit vastly superior to man, and one in the face of which our modest powers must feel humble.” Think of this for a moment; do you know of any building that didn’t have a builder? Do you know of any painting that didn’t have a painter?
Could I ever convince you that from the empire state building I dropped 50 apples and they all fell to the ground and by chance fell into ten rows of five apples. The logical conclusion is that someone with an intelligent mind put them there. The odds that ten apples would fall by accident into a straight line are mind-boggling, let alone ten rows of five.
The whole declaration that “There is no God,” is what is known as an absolute statement. For an absolute statement to be true, I must have absolute knowledge. Here is another absolute statement: “There is no gold in China.” In order for this statement to be true, I must know that there is no gold in China, or the statement is incorrect. To say, “There is no God” and to be correct in the statement, I must be omniscient. If I am omniscient then I must know how many hairs are upon every head, every thought of every human heart, every detail of history, every atom within every rock… nothing is hidden from my eyes. I must know intimate details of the secret love-life of the fleas on the back of the black cat of Napoleon’s great grandmother. To make the absolute statement that, “There is no God” I must have absolute knowledge that there isn’t one.
Let’s say for instance that a circle represent all the knowledge in the entire universe, and let’s assume that you have an incredible 1% of all that knowledge. Is it possible, that in the knowledge you haven’t yet come across, there is ample evidence to prove that God does indeed exist? If you are reasonable and being completely honest with yourself you will have to say that having the limited knowledge I have at present, I believe that there is no God. In other words, you don’t know if God exists, so you are not an “atheist,” you are what is commonly known as an “agnostic.” You are like a man who looks at a building, and doesn’t know if there was a builder.
Perhaps you have questions that hold you back from faith. First, almost every question you have about suffering humanity, can be adequately answered. Second, we have faith in plenty of things we don’t understand. Did you understand the mechanics of television before you turned it on? Probably not! You took a step of faith, turned it on, and after it worked, understanding how it worked wasn’t that important. We accept that there are unseen television waves right in front of our eyes. We can’t see them because they are invisible. For them to manifest, we need a receiver, then we can enjoy the experience of television.
God is not flesh and blood. He is an eternal Spirit-immortal and invisible. Like the television waves, He cannot be experienced until the “receiver”” is switched on. Try experience God for yourself and see that God indeed does exist.
