If there is no God I welcome any atheist to reasonable answers or explain the following points. I am not ignorant or closed minded. These are personal conclusions that I have arrived at through logical considerations of truth. I invite you to challenge these ideas if they are different from your own.
Five proofs for God:
Our existence demands an explanation. Because we are here we must have been created. There is no other reasonable alternative. Though I understand this argument is circular in nature. It is no different from the atheist assumption that we evolved because we now exists. The creation explanation is superior to evolution because there is no scientific example that can be currently observed where a lesser state of matter or energy changes itself into a more complex state of matter.
It is only logical to assume that we were created by a higher source or power.
Giorgio Armani and Giani Versace have the fall of man to thank for their success in clothing the elite of society. Apart from covering ourselves from elements of cold and heat a world-view without God has no explanation of clothing. No other creatures of the earth attempt to cloth themselves to the level that humans do. Genesis 3 gives the most logical explanation of the need for clothes. Having been created in perfection man sinned and realized his nakedness. I challenge atheist thinkers to give a logical explanation of clothing that does not include God.
3. Changed Lives
An overwhelming majority of the world believes in God. Inside of that majority are millions of examples of people whose lives have been dramatically changed by the Loving hand of God. The unexplainable medical miracles as a result of prayer. The reformed addicts who were given grace to conquer their addiction. The hope found in God that transforms our lives and gives us a purpose and meaning beyond ourselves. Explain this. Certainly if the change of God was minimal in effect than it could be dismissed. But the expanse of the effects of God can not be casually dismissed. And I submit it as proof of God.
4. The God tendency
At man’s core there is a natural belief that God exists. Religion has been a natural part of every culture ever encountered. If there is no God how do you explain the tendency of people groups who have never interacted with each other to come to similar conclusions of a Deity’s existence. For this reason you will not find a casual atheist. There is an enormous amount of mental energy that is spent suppressing the natural tendency to have faith in God. Atheist must constantly surround themselves with anti-God propaganda or their inner-nature will lead them back to an understanding of God.
The death bed experience of even famous atheist has demonstrated the God tendency.
5. An inner sense of morality
Most people,atheist included, agree that stealing and killing are wrong. Unlike animals people around the world have an inner sense of what is right and wrong. I have never met an atheist who accepts the notion that an unprovoked cold blooded killing is acceptable. We universally believe that taking another’s life is wrong. What is the origin of this universal morality? When God said he made man in his own image. It is this image, though broken through the fall, that stirs each of us with passionate hate towards unprovoked killing.
Where did that sense of morality come from? God.
I would like to open an honest dialogue in the comments section.
These thoughts perpetually verify God to me. They are not five all-inclusive reasons for faith in God. But they at least begin the conversation. My mind is open to your thoughts.
