You will get hundreds of results in search engines if you search the topic which I'm going to write here.'Should we believe in god' or 'Does God exist'. actually that is a Tricky question. the question which has 2 possible answers. Yes/No. Either a Yes or No will make you think about the opposite answer. your answer will force your own Beliefs onto others.
I have seen a lot of people who argue against the existence of god.their arguments are based on some questions like
- Why Should I Belive In a God I Can't See
Why Should I Believe In a God, I Can't See, Because there is a lot of evidence around us that there is a power greater than ourselves and there are many facts that can Only be explained by the existence of such a power. If something is not visible, it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. considers wind as an example. You can't see that With your eyes. but you can feel it. You can experience it. Existence of god is like that, you can't see. but you can experience.. Human has always had a belief to cling To. We Need to believe there is a force that is bigger and more powerful than us, a force that we can pray to when we are desperate and hopeless.
The Bible clearly says that it is not easy to experience God.
"since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened." [Romans 1:19-21]
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.[a] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”[Jeremiah 29:13-14]
- What about Evolution theory
The main weapon for atheist against the existence of god is the Evolution theory.
Has evolution been proven? No.it has not been. there is no such solid proof behind this Theory. On the other hand, nature of atomic theory, theory of relativity has not been proven. it may or may not be true.
So probably your next question would be about my Belief in atomic theory or relativity theory? '.My answer is yes.as a student who studied physics ,my answer would be yes.I believe in atomic theory which Has not proved yet.But that is not a reason to believe in evolution theory completely. Because there are hundreds of small/big not-proved theories which i don't Believe into.It is not necessary to believe all the non proved theories..how can we support evolution theory on the basis of an entirely different theory. And there are A lot of theories like big bang theory,from which we can understand the existence of god.
There are lots of reasons to believe in the existence of god.
- The Universe itself shows the existence of god.
Consider our earth,the complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today.earth's size is perfect for Sustain plant,animal and human life in it. If Earth were smaller, an atmosphere would be impossible, like the planet Mercury. If Earth were larger, its atmosphere Would contain free hydrogen, like Jupiter.Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human Life.
Its location in the solar system shows his excellence in creation. earth is at a perfect distance from the sun. if it were any further away from the sun we would all Freeze. Any closer and we would burn up. its location is perfectly made by an excellent creator.
Similarly, Earth's rotation around the sun at a perfect speed makes the entire surface of the Earth to be properly warmed and cooled every day, which is mandatory to sustain Life here.
- Is big bang theory against the existence of god ?
My answer is No.The Bing Bang theory itself tells the existence of god.According to the big bang theory, the universe began by expanding from an infinitesimal volume With extremely high density and temperature. The universe was initially significantly smaller than even a pore of your skin. With the big bang, the fabric of space Itself began expanding like the surface of an inflating balloon –The existence of such a creation event explains a number of phenomena including the expansion of the Universe, the existence of the cosmic background radiation, and the relative proportions of various sorts of matter.
I can explain this theory in a theological way and i can say big bang theory provides some evidence for the existence of God as well.I totally agree with The big bang Theory.but my question is who initiated that expansion (as the theory says).in other words,something must have caused the big bang, and who else but God could have Done such a thing? .Astronomer Hugh Ross in his book, The Creator and the Cosmos, puts the argument this way: "If the universe arose out of a big bang, it must have had a beginning. If it had a beginning, it must have a beginner." .yeah it should have a beginner.its no one other than the almighty.
- Consider Paranormal phenomena How do you explain the paranormal, such as people witnessing positive or negative sightings, like ghosts or angels?
- What about DNA,
Do you know ,every cell of our body contain detailed instructions code like a computer program. only difference is computer program is made up of ones and zeros , whereas DNA code is made up of four chemicals abbreviate as A, T, G, and C. each cell contain nearly 3 billion of these letters. and this three-billion-lettered program Telling the cell to act in a certain way. It is acting as an instruction manual. based on this, our body behaves differently in different conditions.
The question here is, who Programmed this? If there is a programmed code, there should be a person who coded those things.. who is that.?
Looking at all these facts, one can conclude that a loving God does exist and can be known in an intimate, personal way.
