    How to justify it? You mean prove it? (Dictionary def.)

    That does indeed pose a problem for many. First, people have to define what they mean by "God," since that word can mean vastly different things to different people and cultures.

    Second, people must prove that their particular "god" (out of the thousands of deities of human history) is the one responsible for "creating" everything that exists.

    Third, a person must provide convincing evidence that everyone in the world should reject what they believe up to this point and begin to follow their god.

    Questions like this have been posted time and time again here, abdullah. Most of the time it ends up that all the theists quote their specific holy book or some object or event in nature that they believe "proves" their god. The believers are never dissuaded and the the non-believers are never persuaded. So, I have to wonder what you reason is for posting this question?

      Hi Robert thanks for the reply. The sole intention of posing question is to understand the way people think about this phenomenon. Proving or disproving is bound to happen, but I think the human intellect is much fairer & understands the reality.

    I think or maybe I speculate that God began His creation and has indeed through the cover of what we call evolution and catastrophic events (i. e. Ice ages) molded/modified His original work to transform it to where we are today. I imagine there will some day be another significant modification to alter His work again.
    If you will, I believe He indeed does at this moment of His, favor mankind (thank God) and I believe some of the significant evidence of this is indeed our evolved brain. It you examine the morphology of our brain it is almost like a garage-modified combustion engine. It looks like parts have been added over time and it has indeed changed to give us a significant advantage and perhaps richer experience on this 3rd rock from the sun. Now some of what He originally created has in time evolved to become creative in nature. Thus, now His creation has now evolved to multiple points of creative potential and has become significantly more complicated to decipher...

      Why would a perfect,  all knowing,  higher power need events like ice ages and meteor impacts to modify the original work? This is where the logic falls kinda short, wouldn't he have already known this from get go and did it right the first time?

      Perhaps He intercedes not unlike a loving Father, He gives every opportunity to individuals to make the correct decisions; yet, when it gets to what He only sees as a critical moment He knows to intervene significantly to make the correction?

      What link10..has pointed out believe to be the developmental stages of human histroy. As far the creations, they have been created all at once. Some animals & plants perished due to specific circumstances & some developed.This is how we can p

      Perhaps if you focus precisely on the stages of "man" it will become more clear. He brings it along in what we see as a slow progression; yet, He is not in our timeline he is above ours. The past/present/future is all one with Him. Thus it happens...

      Yeah thats true. Generally evolution of man has been discarded and termed it as quite un realistic. If man has evolved then why that process has stopped why not he is progressing now?

      connorjposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Who ever said it has stopped? The evolution of "Man" is far from complete... We are a work in progress and perhaps the next stage will be significantly unique once again and may even be so subtle that it will not be recognized...

      Quite interesting connorj. Could you please explain in what sense the evolution of man is in progress? Is it same as the theory says or is there any other explanation?

    There can be no justification for the claim that a god created existence. First there has to be an understanding of  'existence' and that has yet to be defined. There must also be a definitive understanding of your god and that too, is elusive. What you are asking is, did an undefined being create an undefined existence?
    It would seem that such a question, is at best, naive, presumptuous and very self servicing. There are at least 100 billion galaxies in the universe, which expands to about 90 billion light years, that is 90 billion X 6 trillion.
    To give an idea of size consider that the smallest known 'thing' is 10-35 power and the largest, the universe is 10+27 power. The site may be of interest and you can find it here http://htwins.net/scale2/
    In all this existence exists and we are, in size, some where about the middle and as large as the universe is smaller is bigger.
    This then is what you are saying, that a god created us, to include the Ebola virus to live and die on an insignificant speck of rock coming from nowhere and going to nowhere in a universe that may or may not the only one.

      Excellent Diagoras, welcome to hubpages, we'll benefit from your good self. Thanks for a profound reply. I think we should try hard to understand the realities. But at certain point we have to understand that our senses have their own limitations.
