    Does anyone have any evidence for the existence of God?

    I am an atheist, which to me only means that I haven't been shown requisite evidence to convince me of an omnipotent, all-knowing deity of any kind.  If you would, please bring forth this evidence and deliver me from a fiery afterlife.  I have an exceptionally open mind, and will do my absolute best to thoughtfully consider reasonable claims.  Thank you in advance.

    You are the only one to honor your " absolute best" , however your best shall be aimed  in right direction. The true God , creator of the Universe in all his greatness won't fit into  any human reasoning, thus we have to follow a direction design by Him if / when we are serious to know Him , tom "meet" Him and to have fellowship - consequently as  one of the " family of God."
    All of us who know Him and came as far as being the children of God.- John 1:12.13. " those who did receive him "( read previous verses)-" he gave authority to become children of God, to those who believe in him. they were born, not from human stock, nor from physical desire, nor from the will of a man, but from God." As you notice it involves total person: spirit soul and body. " God is Spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." (J.4:24) Oh, here is the first step, "Now, without faith it s impossible to please God, for anyone who comes to God must have faith that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." (Hebrew 11:6).
    To any reasoning this will sound totally preposterous and it is, thats why we approach Him fully trusting in His word and he is there for us knowing our sincere hear.
    Many true seekers of God, plainly began talking to him, some even questioning "If you really  do exists then you know my need that i am searching for peace of my mind, the way to know what is right and live righteously .... " (Create your own vocabulary , you'll find out  how easy it is... )

      My main issue with this approach is the following phrase: "[t]o any reasoning this will sound totally preposterous and it is."  This is why I specifically said, "reasonable claims." Reasonable is the key word, and reason the key idea I cannot reject.

      Fine, reasonable is the key word which has philosophical connotation not reaching to the spiritual territory  where God can be reach only on his terms: the one have to believe that He  exists in order to have know him otherwise endless arguments  re

      Everything else can be evaluated with reason, I honestly do not know why faith is the sole ideal that is immune to the same due diligence. I respect your right to faith, but it is not a justifiable reason for me to adhere to the same belief system.

      Michael-Milecposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      The same here, " i do not know why faith is the sole ideal..." what I do know is that God made it so, - easier for us  humans to reach into His spiritual domain by believing/ receiving and keep hearing what he has to say, so we can live abundantly.

    You state that you're an atheist. Does that mean that you believe that mind arises from matter? Because if you do, you believe in a solely material universe, and that you solely trust on your 5 senses? In that case you walked into a blind alley.

    It is impossible to prove that a creator god, that created 'earth and heaven', exists. But it is possible to prove that the Universe doesn't require a deity. This universe is mathematical infinitely complex. So, doesn't this prove indirectly that God doesn't exist?

    You state that you're an atheist. But why are you questioning about the existence of any God if you're an atheist? It seems that you're unsure about your position?

    I could tell much more about this issue, but it's best to read The God Game.  It is the first book of a series 21 books, called the God Series. When you finished them all, and are able to grasp the contents, you will look entirely different to the world!

    I could give you a link to download this book, but I believe it's not allowed to post links in here. Nevertheless here it is:

      Atheism doesn't imply rejection, only uncertainty. The mind (and Universe) also contain energy. I reject the senses in The Universe is Absurd. It's OK to question something, even if you are certainly unsure about it. Great answer/link Buildreps, Thx!

      I think uncertainty is the footing of agnosticism, where atheism is the positive belief there is no deity. In a sense, that makes all us heirs of DesCartes agnostic to some degree, but it seems to be more a matter of one's dominant view.

      Atheism literally means without belief: a-theos.  The passive belief that there is no God is gnostic atheism,  and it's a very small minority.  most atheists are agnostic atheists who do not make a positive claim,  but withhold belief.

    I would post a bunch of Islamic scripture, but I'm sure you will probably deny it all as a creation of man.

    Instead, I will ask you to look around you and you will see the creations of God all around you. to assume it all happened by accident or coincidence is a little naive in my opinion. If you don't want to look around you then look up in the sky at the adornment of stars (15 billion light years worth) placed for our viewing pleasure. All this cannot just come out of nowhere.

    "The sun will rise from the west" on the day of judgement ... how stupid does that sound right? especially when it was said 1400 hundred years ago. I'm sure you are aware of retrograde motion of planets. I won't dive into science and religion because I know that topic does not sit well with atheists.

    No one will ever be able to give you any evidence of God, the way you like to receive it. But there are signs available for you to see in any direction you look. The Fibonacci sequence found by looking at a bunch of rabbits reproducing has the same code or sequence of the DNA in humans (I know there is a connection... I'm just missing the details of it right now, it had something to do with orbit of planets too) ... the main idea I would give you is to look deeply into science and you will see there is a code or a sequence to everything and everything is connected to one another and it simply cannot be out of coincidence. There is, a grand designer, and you can recognize this with the scientific evidence we have today, provided you are willing to accept this fact with an open mind as you claim to have.

    The main issue in our nature as humans is that we want the goods first, and make the payments later. With religion, it is all about making the payments first and then collect your rewards without even being able to see the goods beforehand. Sure it sounds like a trap, but this part is what you call "faith" or "trust" and it is something you need a lot of, to believe in a God.

    A response to the picture you posted: You have free will that is why you are an atheist. Anyone can reject the scriptures and exit their religion using their free will. Do as I command, if you want to get closer to God in this world, as well as receive the pleasure of living in heaven in the hereafter. The choice is, and always will, remain our hands until the day we die.

      The work of God is beautiful. Science is the study of the work of God, but it still hasn't crossed over to the soul and philosophical side of things, coz it cannot prove anything. Once you start searching honestly, the right one will become obvious.

      @Irfan: this is a distinct possibility.  The existence of what we would call a "soul" does little to convince me of an omnipotent creator though. Why does the presence of a soul mandate a creator? I am doing my best to search honestly but fruitlessly

    John Lennon stated in one of his songs, "God is a concept by which we measure our pain". I find this question to be extremely difficult to answer and the reason is this: To explain G_d is to explain a concept. Yes G_d is a concept. How does one perceive G_d? Do we accept the traditional version where G_d is the Supreme Being, infinitely perfect who makes all things and keeps  them in existence (this was the correct answer to a question during the Confirmation ceremony that Catholics participate in). According to what many of us have been taught, G_d is external from our existence. Our focus of G_d was to raise our heads and look towards the heavens. It is fine to question that accepted belief. It is a concept. Others believe in a different concept. This concept that I am trying to explain is that we are all connected in spirit. Our souls form the nucleus of God. Keep in mind these explanations are concepts and concepts are theories. There is no way I can prove to you that God exists and there is no way that I can prove that God doesn't exist. Philosophically speaking concepts can sometimes be proven yet on the other hand sometimes they cannot. Look inside your mind and discover your own theories of your existence and that of God's.

    Our daughter's marriage was fixed and we had no money. My earnings were irregular and my husband's business was not yielding anything. And one fine day my father disclosed on phone that he had long ago made a Fixed Deposit on my daughter's name. The wedding took place without the slightest difficulty and all cruel people on my husband's side had to eat a humble pie.
    Also, today all those relatives who deliberately created problems in my husband's work are facing difficulties. My M-I-L has gone insane and so many other things have happened in last 2-3 years.
    All this could not have happened without God's intervention or strong command.
    Even now, there are times when I feel there is someone making my path easy when I am in the midst of a very challenging situation.
    Yes, there is some form of natural justice prevailing in this world.

    Hi Luke! There are those who would say everything is evidence. If you mean in the sense of proof positive, then no. Religious people rely on our faith that God exists. I believe simply because I do. You don't believe and as far as I am concerned- vive la différence. I don't require that everyone in the world believe what I believe about anything. Variety makes the world a whole lot less boring.

    Honestly though; I think without belief nothing can constitute proof or be known. Some people will never believe that man walked on the moon or that the Holocaust occurred regardless of what proof is offered to them. How can we be certain humans can even perceive reality when there is so much that we know that we can't perceive? I believe God is beyond our perception and beyond our understanding.

    Proving the existence of God isn't as simple as just giving a list a scientific evidence of his existence. Mostly because we just don't have enough of it.

    Most of the time there isn't one event or one thing that someone says that convinces one to believe in God. It's many events and experiences that all connect together. Like pixels, you look at one and it's just a square with a solid color. It's nothing important and has very little meaning, but combined with other pixels it makes a picture. Start by praying, reading the bible and doing what it says, attending different churches, and other things like that and just observe the effect of religion on your life.

    Look in the mirror... for that is where Jesus said that the Kingdom of God was.  It includes all the answers that you could ever want and all the laws that you need to live by. It also has anything that you could ever dream up, as in imagination.  Be careful with your thoughts though and the emotions that you put behind them for those will be what you bring back to you.  God (the one within you) knows everything that you do because it is you. You will bring about KARMA as in... do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  If you want people to treat you the same way that you are treating them then make sure that you love Thy Neighbor as Yourself.  What do you see in that mirror and how well do you know the God inside of you?

    I echo your sentiment, but consider myself agnostic rather than an atheist. The difference, at least in my simplistic version, is that between knowledge and belief. I don't believe that there is 'no god', but rather that there is no way of knowing.  I just don't know. This could be construed as a cop-out, but it isn't. A segue for another discussion, perhaps.
    Unlike you, I was raised with religion. I was a little girl full of questions for which there were no answers.  As an adult, I still ask questions, but have faith in what I know. I'm a natural skeptic and rely on reasoning, testing and evidence; in my opinion, there is no evidence for the existence of God.
    I have witnessed, and have a deep respect for, the beauty, serenity and peace that comes with undying faith in God. In contrast, one might expect someone like me to be cold, lost, uncaring or apathetic.  Quite the opposite.  I am full of love, respect, strength and a keen sense to share it.  My spirituality comes from within; not because I'm told to, but because of my faith in humanity.
    Thank you for the opportunity to share.  I have found your hubs and questions very interesting and look forward to further reading and commenting.

      This is the fallacy of shifting the burden of proof.   We do not believe everything until it's proven wrong,  that's absurd.   You would have to believe in every god ever proposed. The positive claim (that God exists) has the burden of proof.

    Whilst I have no proof of God, I'd simply argue that people have no proof there is no God. I understand the theory of evolution and, despite being a Christian, believe that theory is correct. However, science has been unable to answer the question of what happened or what existed before the big bang and until they do so, I choose to believe God orchestrated the event.  But with regards to the meme about free will, I believe we do have free will as we choose whether to follow the commandments or not. You may follow the rules at school or at work but you would still consider yourself to have free will, you're just more likely to be reprimanded if you break those rules and praised if you follow them. I do consider myself a realistic Christian in the sense that I explore logic before proclaiming an act of God (let's be honest, in a tornado if I threw a bible at somebody and they didn't see me do it, they might presume it was a message from God)  but I choose to believe in God and I don't think anybody will truly have the answer until they pass away.

    The claims that evidence exist and the claims that certain things, like existence itself is not evidence for God....  it's evidence for existence, or evidence that we were born, yeah, maybe we are all blindly walking through alleys, if we weren't then no one would be fighting or asking these questions or debating on the existence of God or even debating on what God is, but there are many Christians who do not agree with each other, even in the same church, as to his very nature.  If you can't agree then how can you be sure?  Faith?  Faith is believing even if the evidence says otherwise....  I became an atheist when I realized I did not know if God existed or not and I no longer believed he was possible because there is no actual evidence for a God.
    Buildreps says "Does that mean that you believe that mind arises from matter? Because if you do, you believe in a solely material universe, and that you solely trust on your 5 senses? In that case you walked into a blind alley."  if I were to answer him it would be, is there evidence the mind doesn't arise from natural matter?  No.  Yes, the Universe is Material, but what is matter?  There is no evidence for anything other than matter, molecules and particles of various sizes....  As to the 5 senses?  No is the answer to that because we have developed tools for enhancing and finding things that our limited senses can't find.
    Atheism means I don't believe in God because I can't know whether or not he exists, I mean that doesn't mean I can't also be certain that God doesn't exist, the lack of evidence for God and contradictory evidence to his existence makes me sure God does not exist.  At least not a Christian God.

    The issue that I have with those that question intelligent design is their lack of self-worth. I refuse to believe that I was not created by a greater being. It is not necessarily the proof that you seek, because arguements can always be made for both sides. What you seem to be looking for is meaning. You can read all of the books created by human thoughts and ideals and get your answers from the brains of others, or you can read the one book created from the mind of the Creator Himself (yes, written by man's hand) to determine what you want to believe. We are not meant to know and understand everything that goes on around us. Humans have proven to be incapable of handling the truth.

    The evidence for God is overwhelming. The secret is, you have to have an open mind to see it. Those who have already made their decision, that there is no God, will easily reject the evidence. Psychologists have proven that the human mind has this tool, and uses it.
    It takes a scientific mind to discover truths. One must not be biased in any way. Then, investigate.
    Hundreds of millions of people testify they experienced instant freedom from many bad habits or life-ruining things like drugs, sexual deviance, alcoholism, violence, and more. I have seen demons cast out, and I have even seen the dead raised. The Holy Spirit has shown me many things and warned in dreams.
    Here is a test for you: America will be invaded by Russia, China, and Japan. Even Mexico will fight against the U.S. Russia will bomb out all the major U.S. airports. The Japanese occupiers will rape with impunity. Chinese sailors will take American prisoners back to mainland China... where they will be sold as meat.
    When you see those things, remember: God warned those who know Him. God is real. God knew in advance. The important thing is this: God is real. So is Satan. Heaven is real, too. The only way to Heaven is Jesus. If you reject Jesus, you reject God (Jesus said this.) Read the book of John in the Bible. Peace.

    The only way that God exists... is through an individual's believing capacity. God exists by an individual's belief in Him. After that, one must communicate with Him through fervent prayer and wait for responses from God if that is necessary. There will never be proof that God exists for anyone else to see. No one can prove to another that He can or cannot exist but He is surely there watching over us all. He is especially waiting for the atheist to start believing in Him and therefore, He can show the former atheist His existence and that all things will turn out for the better of those that love the Lord.

    The universe is made up of space, matter and energy. Most definitions of God suggest an existence made up of energy rather than matter, so evidence via the senses is not possible.

    Physicists now believe that the universe is made up of 70% "dark energy," even though they can't explain it or measure it.

    So most of the energy in the universe is unknown. People widely believe physicists, but many atheists don't believe theists for their claims of spiritual experiences, which are a form of energy. Numinous is a common thread in most religions.

    Scientists are starting to measure some forms of what traditionally has been known as spiritual experiences. One of the better examples is senior Buddhist monks, who exhibit high levels of brain theta waves after dedicated meditation for decades. 

    Based on those studies and others, a scientific basis is building for what is known as spirituality. But is that experience the God of the Bible or something else? I don't think anyone can make yet the argument one way or another.

    If there is an intelligent being influencing our lives, the most logical possibility is that it (or they) have been in existence for millions if not billions of years. After all, the universe is 11 billion years old.

    Does anyone believe that life began on every planet and galaxy at the exact same time? What prevents intelligent life from starting a billion years earlier than us and evolving into something far beyond our understanding?

    Then the debate becomes, did God precede the beginning of the universe or is he (or they) something that formed after the start of it. I'd love to know the answer to that one.

      The most widely accepted figure for the age of the Universe is around 13.8 Billion Years, not 11.  Buddhists are non-theistic, i.e., they do not believe in god. There almost certainly are more advanced civilizations that started before us. Big Bang.

    Be a fool for God through faith and experience. Put off your logic and became illogical for God. And you will find the evidence that God exist. Human logic and atheism have no eyes to see God, and no capability to know God. Unless you wake up, you will never see the beauty of God's creation around you. Atheism is like sleeping, wake up and see and experience God in your life. Atheist's unbelief is a one proof of the existence of God. And when the atheist believes in God, it vindicates God's existence into his life.

We have water to drink and water to bathe, water for plants and animals, what ever we need is here , not out in space.
    Now , think how wonderful our bodies are made, our bodies have there own cooling systems, our eyelids are like windshield wipers they protect debris
    from getting in the eyes, our eyes are like the shutters of a camera that can
    Take many images in and store them in our memory banks,
    Scientists Carl Sagan states that our brain capacity can hold twenty million
    Volumes of infomation,  as much as the largest library would hold.(cosmos1980).
    There is plenty proof that all things were created by a Genius , some one who is far more advance then humans
    He also has the cure for all our problems that includes sickness and death. Surly man has made some contributions to the human race.

    Fulfilled Prophecies!  I continue to ask all unbelievers to present a book written before bible containing as many fulfilled prophecies as IT does and have never gotten a response.  Can you provide such a book?

    Regarding your picture depicting God:  If one would realize that we currently live under a New Covenant (Grace and Truth) and "NOTHING" is "commanded" by GOD any longer, they would not present pictures such as this!  We all have "free will" to do as we please.  "Commanding" contradicts ""free will" or ALL would be dead (physically)!  He gives choice and doesn't "command" or "kill" as in the Old Testament under the Old Covenant (Law)! 

    Under the New Covenant, ALL have been given "Grace and Truth" and "commandments" or "laws" are being "written in our minds and hearts" (paraphrasing: Jeremiah 31:33; Hebrews 8:10; 10:16)!  Under New Covenant EVERYTHING became "Spiritual!"  Jesus tells us everything we need to know or do via the Holy Spirit which is never in contradiction with His Word.  We no longer have to keep the 613 Mosaic Laws written in Old Testament under Old Covenant!

    IMO unbelievers perceive GOD as an evil murderer when in fact all He did was (1) create; (2) prepare to come; (3) moved ANYTHING out of way which "impeded" coming (effecting HIS WILL or THE PLAN); (4) protected those (Israelites) from which He (Jesus) would come; (5) came and gave us opportunity to inherit "eternal life" by sending Holy Spirit to "help us!" What's wrong with that?  NO ONE (or thing) will prevent the WILL OF GOD otherwise; He would not be God but a spineless murderer as "carnal" minds perceive!   

    A true "Christian" (Disciple of Christ) know these things and as we listen to unbelievers' opinions of Him (murderer without morals) we know it is from lack of knowledge of His Word!  It appears unbelievers have taken  negative snippets from the Bible in order to form negative opinions justifying their points of view.     

    Regarding your question, if one would furnish a book containing as many prophecies written BEFORE Bible that have been fulfilled, I would appreciate it.  ONLY GOD can and does "foresee" ALL things Who via HIS SPIRIT gives prophesies to "man" to be written!  Research this prophecy that was fulfilled during our lifetime:  Isaiah 9:10 regarding 9/11!  Did it not happen?  Who does this, but GOD?  Bible was written thousand of years before (9/11) the event! 

    Of course, unbelievers will probably say "Believers have just "twisted" to conform

    People believe in God, which is their choice, they also believe that Satan is evil, again this is their choice.

    If you combine the two though I would like to ask believers in both these characters why they do not think it is impossible that evil satan is not acting as a kind God to lead them into false pretences.

    How do believers know if God is not satan dressed up as a kind man, he is evil so it is the kind of thing he would do, he may be doing this so we expect to go to the pearly gates, but in fact he will take us to hell whilst laughing I have tricked you.

    A fiery afterlife seems to be primarily an Abrahamic religious concept, and a concept (which, in turn, becomes belief) is not synonymous with truth or reality.  I'm not convinced that the God of any religion shows any evidence of existence beyond anthropomorphism.

    I look at it from a Shakespearean point of view: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."  I first heard that quote from 'Hamlet' when I was 12 years old.  It profoundly affected my outlook on the universe and does to this day...many, many years later.

    Do I, personally, have evidence of a "God" to bring to the table?  No.  I can say I have experienced profound Presence, but I have never been inclined to give it a story outside of my own experience of it.  Do I come from an Abrahamic point of view?  Being from the Latin West, there is, of course, a good measure of influence, but I have shed those concepts in lieu of awe and wonder and to relieve suffering where I can.  I can't see life or death in terms of heaven or hell.  I can't live with that philosophy, even given the innate desire for justice when it comes to man's inhumanity towards man.

    There is consciousness and there is universe, that much is evidenced.  Beyond this, who knows?  Perhaps we are but pilgrims on an unknown, yet very profound journey.

You might consider the Big Bang.  (Yes, I am absolutely convinced that scientists have a pretty fair beginning of understanding how, but not why, the universe came into being.)

    Some thirteen billion years ago all the matter that has ever existed or will ever exist was packed into a singularity smaller than the head of a pin. In an instant, it exploded, and the mass from that singularity has been expanding ever since. We know of many elements in space-time that appear to be infinite. The event horizon of a black hole comes to mind. I think that God exists in the places beyond human comprehension, in the places of infinite density and infinite speed, and yet beyond them as well.  He knows what happens when matter disappears into the black hole, and He knows where it comes out on the opposite side. He orchestrated the particular series of events that occurred in such a way as to make Earth hospitable to life in a way that Venus is not. Consider that this includes, among other things, the precise collision that caused the moon to form the exact way that it did, at the exact distance it is from Earth.

    And this I will leave with you; whether or not you believe in God, He believes in you, and loves you more than you will ever be able to comprehend. I sure can't, and He's sent the Holy Spirit running through my body on more than one occasion. I don't think anybody who can reach out to Him in any way will go to any kind of fiery afterlife, and this very question indicates to me that you are still reaching out to know the truth.

    He is the truth, and no human being alive fully comprehends Him.  We may get to heaven and find that all we thought to be true was woefully inadequate in the infinite Love and Mercy of His Peace.  Who knows? Maybe some day I will see you there! I wish you much happiness.
