I refuse to prove that I exist, says God, for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.


But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn't it? It proves you exist, and so therefore, you don't," "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic. This is quite profound. The basic axiom is indeed that proof denies faith, because faith is a belief that stands upon the strength of its own convictions. It's very easy to believe in something that can be proved. In a sense, doing so isn't true belief at all. Is that a good analysis of the exerpt from The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams?

    We believe the car will start because it has started every time before. This cannot be said of "God." You may believe that God saved you from a car wreck, but you cannot prove it. It may equally have been chance. See?

    Maybe "enough said" for you, but not for thinking people. I challenge you---outside of what the Bible itself says (unverifiable at best), what empirical evidence has God given for his existence?

    He did not interfere because he will undo all injustice done by satan and his wicked followers. He has allowed things to happen . But has the power to undo anything he wishes.
