Does God Really Exist? My Argument for God
God is not Dead
Is God Really There?
Arguments for and against the existence of God are fairly common in the world of philosophy. Whether from the empirical approach or plain rationalism, the argument about God (and creation in general) is far from over - Wanna hear my argument? No? Damn it.....I’ll give it any way. So let's get right to it.
For as long as our history as human beings has been documented, various individuals have claimed to have encountered God or Angels. That is a fact- They have claimed this. Now, while a good majority has either lied with others being delusional or experiencing hallucinations etc, we have to wonder if there are a few who may have actually encountered God or Angels. I know many Christians will argue that many Jew got to interact with Jesus, which is evidence enough- But let's not Jesus for this argument-Is there any other proof?
Through philosophy and science, a good number of "very smart" individuals have come to one conclusion- There is no God and there is no such thing as creation. While I do not have any proof to show that God exists, I have to say- Any "Intelligent" philosopher or scientists who can argue with a hundred percent certainty that there is no God is a complete FOOL. Why do I call them fools? Think for a moment about how big the universe is- Does it have any end? To what extent does it spread across space? It is so damn big that some very prominent scientists of our time have noted it would be foolish to assume that we are alone.
Now, it is a fact that no scientist or philosopher, or any other person for that matter has all knowledge about the entire universe- physical. So, if they don't have all knowledge about the physical, how can they say they have some real knowledge that a supreme creator does not exist?
I have always been of the opinion that those who vehemently argue that there is no God either have their own agenda or are simply not as intelligent as they think they are.
Let's be realistic for a moment- is there a single argument or proof that can convince us that there is no God? If your answer is yes, then it is likely that you did not pose questions to such arguments and you are easily convinced by any argument out there.
Let's use some little assumptions, shall we?
Imagine for a minute that you are all alone, and an Angel appears to you (An angel or God himself) - Just for argument sake. Now, you encounter this supernatural being and decide to go out and share this information with others, even scientists and evolutionists, telling them that you really did see and angel or God. Here is a fact, if you are not regarded to as crazy, or under the influence of some drugs, you will be called a liar- Why? Well, you have no evidence. But what if you really did see the angel or God? What is you really did encounter them? Would you look at atheist’s arguments the same again ever?
Atheists, scientists and evolutionists argue from their own understanding, from the knowledge they posses, from what makes sense to them- but what if all their knowledge and understanding is not enough? There is so damn much about our own world we don't know or have haven't discovered, let alone the universe. So what right does these "intelligent" have to argue with certainty that there is no God? Children in schools are being taught that evolution is no longer a theory, but a fact with religion being prohibited in schools- Is that right?
Again- let us work with some assumptions- yes?
Assume for a moment that God really did exist (even if you believe in God :)) now, do you suppose that it would be easy to figure him out? Would our human minds and understanding be enough to understand who the creator really is? Can we discover him with our science and reasoning?
God would not be as great and supreme as He is if he could simply be discovered fully understood. I am not saying there is actual proof that God exists, but I have not read or seen any evidence or argument that can fully convince me that there is no God.
Back to the assumptions I used before- If you actually encounter God, then the reality is that you would have a hard time proving this to anyone, more-so the scientists- so what does this mean? It means that even if God actually exists then they would not believe it. This is reason enough for me to doubt anything that a scientist, atheist or evolutionist argues about God.
Man likes to think he knows everything. He lies to believe he understands and all the knowledge he posses is enough to either prove or disapprove various issues.
I was recently reading an interesting article that argued that man has actually become more intelligent than ever before. This suggested that man today is smarter than he ever was. But is this really true? If you were to ask me then I would say that we as human beings are simply building on the knowledge and ideas of those who came before us. Individuals like Leonardo Da Vinci came up with ideas; they drew these ideas down and tried working on them. Today we have perfected them. Does this make us any smarter than them? You be the judge of that.
Some Final Thoughts
In closing; I have to say, while no one has actually shown sufficient proof to show everyone that God exists, no one has given sufficient evidence and argument to prove that He doesn’t. Scientists and evolutionists today are in such a big hurry to prove that they are relevant and to get their names in the history books that they will simply argue the half truths they posses. Why? Why are they using so much energy and putting so much effort to get people to give up their belief in God? I find it interesting how religious scholars and religious scientists do not get much recognition as fame as the atheists ones. Science and philosophy has always been a platform for man to find real and true answers about our origins and our future. This is why all sorts of scientists and philosophers (atheists and religious) are well documented in history books. They all had important arguments to present. This is not the case today.
A very popular philosopher recently said that all true philosophers are dead. I agree with him a hundred percent. All we have today is a bunch of fame hungry individuals who will cannot be said to be real philosophers.
