Does God exist? Evidence for existence of God

Yes God exists:

(1) We mortals are finite beings with faculties that are limited in scope and nature.Our haring for instance responds to sound waves that lie within 200 to 18000 cycles per second.

Therefore does it mean that, because we are not able to hear sounds below lower and above the higher limits stated above, those other sound waves do not exist?

In a similar way just because we cannot hear God or quantify His existence using a measure acceptable to mere mortals does not mean He is non-existent.

(2) Our eyes respond to light waves that lie between ultra-violet and infrared within the electromagnetic spectrum.

Does this mean what we cannot see with our own eyes does not exist? Clearly we now know from science that certain things are visible with support of instruments that we as humans have just discovered and have been able to build over the course of the last few decades.

Hence - just because we cannot see God does not mean He does not exist - maybe as humans we have not achieved a level of intelligence required to see God yet, especially if we are still grappling with the term 'does He or does He not exist?'.

Our conscious minds are also limited in their comprehension of realities in a similar way to the above two examples.Faith should be based on what is not visible but can be comprehended and deduced from all the evidence that we have at our disposal.

Looking around us we see created things that clearly point to a Creator, Designer and Sustainer.As we often turn to science for solutions these days, let’s see how science approaches this problem.

A world renowned scientist Sir Fred Hoyle who was an ardent atheist carried out research into the possibility of life having begun on earth spontaneously.He and his colleague were shocked by the final result of their research published in a book titled - 'Evolution from Space' that they both had to revise there thinking.

They arrived at the same conclusion that odds against life having ignited accidentally on earth were staggering, in mathematical terms 10 to the power of 40,000, in maths and science odds exceeding 10 to the power of 50 are generally considered impossible.

Watch this video by Garry Miller to find God!

Some good Dr Zakir Naik videos to watch on the subject of God!

Sir Fred Hoyle said – “to say that the universe has come into existence coincidentally, is like saying that a hurricane went over a junk yard and left behind a perfectly assembled Boeing Jumbo aircraft ready to take off.”

The Holy Quran tells us:

"And on earth there are signs (of God's existence visible) to all who are endowed with certainty, just as there are signs within your own selves; can you not see?" (Quran 51:21-22)

An example of the complexity in ourselves:

There are over 100,000 electro-chemical actions/reactions going on in our brains every second.We have approximatly 100 trillion cells (no one knows how many exactly) in our body. Our bodies are very complex yet we are still not willing to accept that a Creator must have been behind the creation of such complexity.

Are you willing to deny God simply because you are not able to see Him or hear Him?

Just like the computer you are using to read this hub was designed, built and programmed by a creator for a purpose in a similar manner you have been created for a reason!

Hi Rajan,

Thankyou for the comment. Yes your right in that the athiest won't be led to believe. I think sometimes it is more the fear of believeing that causes many not to do the research in the first place and just go with the flow of not believeing something that can not be quantified by science in their view.

Nice examples to provide as existence of God. Still atheists won't be led to believe. Voted up, interesting.

Hi Zubair,

thanks for this nice article, although I agree that some of the reasons her can't be used to prove god existence, I wish I could find a source of information for more logical reasons. the thing isn't that you need to find a proof of God existence because he exists wither you like it or not. because no one can proof God exists, God send messengers to be his evidence on them later on the judgement day when people says God, we didn't Know you are existed. Believing in God in itself change the life of a person because now he knows their is a God then he should obey him and he is afraid of him. this is why after each messenger people decide by their own to change what he came with and add a lot of their desires. even the stories about hoers, were originally for messengers and good people, but later people decide to forget about God and start to believe in the messenger him self or in the hero him self, and why because at the end he is a human, he can make mistakes too so now there is no difference between people and God.

For the People that says their is no God! why do you think we die? where do you think we go? if we are all created by nature, now we have a great hospitals and doctors, why you die. you should be living for ever?

anyway thank you for this nice hub, voted up

Hi Rob,

Thank you for reading and your nice comment. I don't know if you have ever read the Quran, if you want to ever read a book then try reading the Quran in English. What you will find in that is God asks people to seek knowledge as He say it will lead you to identify the Creator, and even provides scientific clues to many of the worlds wonderful elements.

By definition, science means "knowledge attained through study or practice," or "knowledge covering general truths of the operation of general laws, esp. as obtained and tested through scientific method [and] concerned with the physical world." (http://www.sciencemadesimple.com/science-definitio... Therefore science cannot affirm or deny the reality of God and good scientists always acknowledge this. Since quantum physics came along, many open minded scientists have come to realise the folly of assuming the laws of mechanical physics are the final word.

When I discovered fractal images I was reminded of the exquisite mosaics in Muslim art and got a glimpse, I think, of the meaning those mosaics convey. There is, I believe, a divine order to the universe. The fact that our limited human perspective cannot grasp the entirety of it does not negate it. We humans tend to think too highly of ourselves.

Thanks for a nice hub.

Hi, I remember seeing a tv programme recently that explained how atoms and the periodic scale all fell into place, then we have the 'golden mean' which shows how mathmatics can tell how the creatures on earth all have a symmetrical pattern etc, so I do believe that there is something behind it, what I have no idea! lol you mentioned the bible above in a comment, saying that it has been changed? no, it has stayed the same, because when a boy found the lost gospels in 1947, they included gospels from Mary Magdalene, and Philip and after reading them, they do say exactly the same as the Bible, in fact they added to it, but I agree Religion is a man made concept of trying to find out exactly what is going on. Whether you worship a God or a Goddess, nobody really knows, but it is fascinating, and yes I do believe! lol great hub cheers nell

You mention losing your faith, what caused you to lose your faith? - since you lost your faith means you at some point also believed that God existed - did you then expect as a person that believes, that everyone else should believe same as you?- if not then what makes you think that I would like everyone else to believe as I do? and if you did then what is the problem in me or others having the same desire?

I am not preaching to anyone - I have simply published a hub in response to someone else's question on HP, based on my own observations and beliefs - if you disagree with them, then so be it - I have no respect (as you state) for those who assume because someone writes about their own beliefs that they are somehow pushing it down peoples throats.

You are free to lose faith, as others are free to believe and discuss their own faiths without having to accept the 'No God' ideology.

Thanks for your comments

None of what you said is actually evidence for god at all. When I was first losing my faith, I tried to convince myself that god must be real based on a lot of these arguments. They may be comforting to people who have faith because they can convince themselves that their beliefs are based on more than desire. But these arguments really don't stand up to scrutiny if you look at them objectively, which strong believers tend not to do. The fact is you could use many of these kinds of arguments to prove that invisible dragons fly around in the sky. If a scientologist gave you this kind of evidence to prove the existence of Xenu, you would laugh at him.

You are also left with another problem. If a creation needs a creator who created god. What is god? What is he made of? Where did his powers come from? Where is he? There are so many problems with the god hypothesis. Faith by definition is believing in something that you can't know is true. You can't prove the existence of any god, your own or any of the thousands of other gods people have or continue to believe in. You either have faith or you don't. I have far more respect for religious people who say I can't prove god is real but I believe anyway than I have for people who insist that their beliefs are based on evidence, so everyone should believe what they believe.

I agree with AKA on the Fred Hoyle argument. There really is no way to know how likely the possibility of life coming into existence is. But considering the size of the universe, many scientists think it is very likely that life has formed on many other planets too. You would find a lot of experts who would disagree with Hoyle.

Hi The Agnostic One,

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I think if you looked into all the world religions at the center of it what you would find is that they all believe in the One God albeit by different names. Unfortunately man and his evil inclinations has been active and over generations has altered many of the holy scriptures except the Quran which to this date remains unchanged.

Lets move away from the pre-conceived ideas of 'No God' and do a little research into 'What if there is a God'.

The keyboard you and I use to type our messages - had to be designed and built - if something simple as this had to have a designer and a creator then why is it so difficult to accept that, something as complex as the universe or the human body must have an intelligent Designer and Creator?

I guess the next step for anyone who says God does not exist, is who created God?

That's a topic I think I'll cover in another hub - so please do come back.

All the best mate

I like your reasoning but I must ask you this: Okay if there is a creator how do you know your creator is the one that created everything? There are several people who claim to worship the creator but there creator is different from your creator. They say there creator answers prayers, does your creator answer prayers too? So of you are worshiping the wrong god.One of them have to be right. Which one is right? That is were religion errors in thinking I think.

Hi kakarot,

Thank you very much for reading and your comment. As you have correctly detailed in your comment, there are certain things in life which we cannot comprehend with the limited knowledge tat we have as humans.

As our knowledge increases we find ways for quantifying materials and phenomena that only a decade ago would have been unbelievable or impossible. In a similar way the acceptance of God is one of those areas which many find difficult to accept. May God give them the ability to see beyond the narrow sphere of evolution.

Take care.

Hi AKA Winston,

Thank you for your comment. I accept that there are people who will not believe that they have been Created irrespective of the evidences around them. This is nothing new - when Noah came to his people there were some that accepted his belief and then there were others who did not.

When Abraham came a similar situation arose, and it goes on to Jesus and Mohammed - so I guess it is a natural inclination for certain people to accept and others to deny.

All the best.

Hi lundmusik,

Thank you so much for reading and your comment.

It is an age old question, unfortunately there are those that do not require God in front of them to believe and have enough intelligence to accept God based on observation of natural matter and on the knowledge imparted to Us by God in His Holy scriptures.

And then there are others who, irrespective of all logical, intellectual evidences they are still deluded into thinking that everything no matter how complex came into existence by chance, much like the bird house which suddenly appeared in the far end of my garden.

All the best

Zubair ahmed is totally right and AKA Winston you cannot speculate god by your imperfect perceptions like hearing ,tasting ,seeing ,odour & touching all are imperfect for ex :-eyes ,eyes cannot see clearly if the object is kept at a distance less than distinct vision(0.25 metre ) and you also cannot see farthest object ,you cannot see your eyelid you cannot see farthest objects so conclusion made from imperfect senses are imperfect so you cannot know god through material science ,you can only understand him through spiritual science and x-rays have different wavelengths then visible light so you cannot see it directly through naked eye but you can see through suitable machine so if you want to know ,the no.of bacteria on your hand you need a microscope if you want see an electron you need an electron microscope you cannot say that ill see through binoculars ,conclusion is that everything needs a suitable medium or reference to understand so if you want proof of god you have to accept spiritual science there is no other way to understand ,and if u accept spiritual science you can clearly feel the presence of god,then you"ll know that you were so wrong.


AKA Winston 5 years ago

Just a couple of points. One, the conclusion of your argument is a non sequitor. The fact that, for example, x-rays cannot be seen by the human eye has no bearing on the reality of any god's existsnce. Two, it is impossible to determine the probability of life occuring spontaneously without a complete knowledge of the mechanisms that initiate spontaneous life. In other words, Fred Hoyle's numbers are meaningless.

I'm sure your argument validates your beliefs in your own mind; however, they are pretty much worthless outside that realm, I'm afraid.

I like your slant on this ,, rather than an egotistical rant,, you are making a point that i've tried to allude to in my hubs on immortality and human pre-eminence.... thanks
