Here are “Six Reasons to Believe that God is Really There“. These six reasons to believe in God are found all over the internet as proof that God does exist, and they sound very logical – at first. But think about them, and the six reasons make no sense to an intelligent person. They may appeal to a young student who’s childhood indoctrinated him/her into some religion. But young people grow up and educate themselves in science and nature, and will ask; “Does God Exist?” These six reason’s won’t fulfill anyone’s desire for truth, and actually provide good proof that God is really not here.
1. Does God exist? The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today.
This sounds very logical to uneducated people, but if you’ve listened in your science classes, read books, and have spent the time to learn about our world, you understand it is an amazing place in its own right. ALL of the amazing natural processes are that – purely natural. Yes, when we look at the world we stand in awe. It is amazing, but there is not a single piece of evidence to make an intelligent peson think that a God is making it all happen. Wishful thinking is all they have. For thousands of years people who don’t understand nature point to it and say: “See, look, it must be a God doing this. It’s amazing.” Lightning, earthquakes, conception, DNA, stars. They all were thought to be God’s work until we learned how these natural processes work.
A desert night sky filled with stars is an awesome thing to experience. But it is not the sparkling deeds of some God. Take the time to understand nature. None of the 2000+ Gods mankind invented are needed to make it work. Virtually every natural process is well understood, documented, and very understandable if you take a little time. The easy way out it is refuse to learn, and just say “God works in mysterious ways.”
Don’t fall for this “argument by ignorance“. You are smart enough to learn that nature is very natural and doesn’t need any God to explain it.
1a. The Earth…its size is perfect.
If Earth were any smaller, an atmosphere would be impossible, leaving us like the planet Mercury. If Earth were much larger, its atmosphere would contain free hydrogen, like Jupiter does. Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human life. Wrong.
The notion that our earth is unique is constantly being proven wrong. This argument was popular 30 years ago, but now we know better. Right now, amazing advances are taking place in deep-space exploration, and all scientists who explore deep space know that there are millions of planets like earth out there, and it is only a matter of time before we find an identical one. Measuring the atmosphere of a plant a billion miles away is an amazing technological feat – one that we are only beginning to master. But as astronomers perfect their instruments and processes, they are finding many other planets that can support life.
This “perfect earth” argument used to be a handy argument for God, because it was virtually impossible to prove wrong. Theists love these types of arguments. But it fell apart, and we now know earth is not unique. The fact the earth is not unique is great proof that God does not exists. He didn’t create heaven and earth uniquely for us. We’re just one of millions of planets that you and I happen to live on.
1b. Water…colorless, odorless and without taste, and yet no living thing can survive without it.
This one of the six reasons to believe has nothing to do with God. Pay attention in science class and you’ll understand H2O is not a divine substance. In fact, it shows that a handy compound like water is perfectly natural. God is not needed to make it work. We need water to live. If water were toxic, then an argument for God would be strong. Water is a key element of life, and this has nothing to do with the God of the Bible. If anything, it offers proof that God does not exist.
But, water is everywhere in the world, and all evidence shows that we evolved from creatures that came out of water. Its properties help prove that we evolved and don’t need a God to explain how we got here.
There is no evidence that water is holy, or specially created by God. It is found throughout the universe. It is the building block of life. A very natural element. If were lived in a world filled with toxic fluids, it would be a miracle. God would be needed to explain our survival. But its not a miracle, and God is not needed.
1c. The human brain…simultaneously processes an amazing amount of information.
Your brain processes all the colors and objects you see, the temperature around you, the dryness of your mouth, the pressure of your feet against the floor, the sounds around you, your thoughts, even the texture of your keyboard. Use it!
The brain is amazing, and even more proof that God did not create you. Your brain is virtually identical to the other primates on the planet, and is absolute proof that you evolved from another species related to chimpanzees. If it were totally different than other primates, then this would be proof that God created men and women. But, our DNA, brain, organs, blood, and physiology are virtually identical to other primates. Once again, the logic within this one of the “Six Reasons to Believe that God is Really There” does much more to prove God does not exist.
2. Does God exist? The universe had a start – what caused it?
Scientists are convinced that our universe began with one enormous explosion of energy and light, which we now call the Big Bang. This was the singular start to everything that exists: the beginning of the universe, the start of space, and even the initial start of time itself.
If you are Christian, you know this is not how the Bible says it happened. If you believe the Bible, then the fact that the universe started Billions of years ago in a big bang proves that the Bible is wrong and God does not exists. If you deny Genesis, and say that God caused the Big Bang, then you have a point to argue if you want to argue. This is a good argument to make if you need one because who can prove you wrong about an event that happened billions of years ago?
We are still trying to understand the origin of the universe. It is so complex that very few people can fathom the complex processes that created space, time, energy, and all matter.
The Big Bang is a handy place for believers to hide God, because they can’t understand it and it is still not totally understood. It happened so long ago that no one can prove much about it. Using it as “proof that God exists” is very unsatisfying to intelligent people. You are smart enough to study the research on the origins of the universe. The physics of the Big bang is amazing and nowhere has anyone run into a wall that requires God.
Oh, and if you still believe God is needed to create the universe, then who caused God?
3. Does God exist? The universe operates by uniform laws of nature. Why does it?
Much of life may seem uncertain, but look at what we can count on day after day: gravity remains consistent, a hot cup of coffee left on a counter will get cold, the earth rotates in the same 24 hours, and the speed of light doesn’t change — on earth or in galaxies far from us.
This is another argument that proves God does not exist. Gravity always works. Never, never, has it failed to work. There is no God or Devil running around modifying how the universe works. If there was a god playing with nature, many businesses could not exist. Every time you drop a ball, it hits the ground. 1000 out of 1000 times, or 1,000,000,000 out of 1,000,000,000 times. It never fails to hit the ground, so there is no reason at all to think that there is a God manipulating it or anything else.
The laws of nature are complex and amazing, so this “Argument by ignorance” is compelling to uneducated people. Don’t fall for it. If you take the time to study nature, you’ll appreciate its beauty and see there is no evidence of God whatsoever. Nature works fine without a God running it. Again, this one of the six reasons is a good argument to prove God does not exist.
4. Does God exist? The DNA code informs, programs a cell’s behavior.
This argument says: “All instruction, all teaching, all training comes with intent. Someone who writes an instruction manual does so with purpose.”
There is no reference to DNA in any holy book. Why use DNA to try to prove God exists? The “Six Reasons to Believe that God is Really There” are mostly all arguments of ignorance. Many people have no desire to understand how DNA works, so it is easier to say God makes it work.
Every organism has DNA, even a snake, worm, germ, or microbe. If we didn’t have DNA it would be amazing and an good argument for God. But DNA proves that we evolved from primates. It shows how life progresses and we don’t need God to explain it. It proves we evolved from primates migrating out of Africa. Mitochondrial DNA can be used to trace back genetic traits tens of thousands of years.
DNA is amazing and complex, and great proof that there is no God. Your DNA determines what you look like, and much of how your body works. Gods are not needed to explain your biology or ailments. When cancer strikes the DNA of your cells, praying will not help save you. DNA is a fundamental part of every living organism, and Gods do not manipulate it.
To think that a loving God manipulates the DNA of children to give them Tay-Sachs, cerebral palsy, or muscular dystrophy is absurd. Again, DNA proves that God does not exist.
5. Does God exist? We know God exists because he pursues us. He is constantly initiating and seeking for us to come to him.
The premise with this logic is: “We think a lot about God, therefore he exists”. I do have to admit that many people think about God a lot. There are many reasons for this. I wrote a whole book about why mankind has created their gods. (Why Adam and Eve Created God). Religion and the 2000+ Gods that men and women have created are an important part of life on earth to many people. I want to help you, my family, and anyone else interested in this topic to understand religion.
Humans are a very believing race. Read my book and will will see that they created Gods to fulfill hundreds of emotional, mental, psychological, and social needs. It’s a very natural reaction. But, it is also well understood why we create Gods. Look at the history of any religion or any God. You will see they are made-up by men. Never in the history of the world has anyone found one piece of real evidence for a God. Never. If there were a God some place, one of the millions of people searching for God would have found at least one piece of evidence.
You are are reading about the “Six Reasons to Believe that God is Really There” because these lame reasons are the best someone could come up with. The all are poor arguments, and most actually prove God does not exist. But there are no compelling reasons to believe and no evidence. most people believe because their mom and dad made them.
Remember, there is not one single piece of real evidence that God exists. You don’t believe me? Go search for one. Just one piece of hard evidence. Find something that would stand up in court. There should be something out there. If there is a God that manipulates DNA, gravity, planets, water, and everything else, someplace we would find a single piece of evidence that proves God must be here. Millions have searched for god, and any one of them would be world-famous if they found evidence of God. No one ever has. There is no God.
6. Does God exist? Unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest, most specific picture of God revealing himself to us.
Clear? Most of what we know about Jesus opaque, written in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the Bible. Who wrote these books? No one knows! When were they written? No one is certain! Did Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John write these books? The experts agree – probably not.
Nothing in the Bible will prove to an intelligent educated person that Jesus was God. There is nothing supernatural in the Bible. Every bit of information in it is something that was known to people back in the day it was written. People believe in God and Jesus for many reasons, none of which has anything to do revelation, the Bible, or supernatural events. Why Adam and Eve Created God will explain to you why so many people believe in Jesus. Most people believe because their parents made them. But that is not the end of the story. There is a lot to belief and once you understand it, you’ll have the courage to step away.
Countless brilliant researchers have dissected the Bible and the stories around Jesus. If you want to believe the Bible, then you’ll have little interest in learning what the scholars, historians, and biblical experts think. But if you are interested, read “Who Wrote the Bible”, one of the best selling books of all time. You’ll be amazed at what you learn about the Bible, and where it came from. The history of how the Bible was put together, and why people still revere it is fascinating. Start by learing where the Bible came from, and you quickly will see shy most religions don’t like to talk about this.
These six reasons to believe that God is really there are useless to anyone trying to find God. Wrong. My bad. They are great. These six reasons prove to anyone willing to use his or her intelligence that God does not exist. Who made God? We created god. Life is an amazing journey. Enjoy it because it is the once chance you get.
