FAQ: Does God Really Exist?
God may not be provable through mathematical formulae or properties of physics, but we live in an era where the evidence of an Intelligent Designer is all around us. Just look through the Hubble Telescope and peer to the edge of the massive cosmos. View the monitor of an electron-scanning microscope and delve into the intricate world of a microscopic cell. Try to comprehend the massive library of complex information inherent in the digital code that turns a fertilized egg into a human being. Study principles of quantum mechanics and investigate the world of extra-dimensionality. Review the nature of your conscience, subconscious, standards of morality, and thoughts of religion. Then, try to reconcile all of these realities with a basic theory of randomness. Based on what we know today, atheism (not believing in any kind of god) is a bigger “leap of faith” than theism (believing that some kind of god exists).
Although we’re not claiming to prove God exists in terms of “scientific” certainty, we can point you to significant and credible evidence for the existence of God. Here is a brief summary of the key arguments:
- Order. God provides the best explanation for abstract notions such as numbers, formulae, natural laws, and mathematical properties.
- Causation. God provides the best explanation for the existence of the universe and all that’s in it (the alternative theory is that “nothing” exploded and resulted in everything that we see).
- Design. God provides the best explanation for the complex order in cosmological, stellar, planetary, chemical and biological systems (the alternative theory is that random chance created everything we see).
- Morality. God provides the best explanation for the existence of objective and inherent moral/ethical values in the world.
