Lots of Proof
The US Dollar, the best and most widely accepted currency in the world, carries the words "In God We Trust" on bills and coins.
America's founding documents, such as The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution are obviously deeply based on the existence of an all powerful Creator or God (…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness - US Declaration of Independence 1776 By Thomas Jefferson).
Consider this analogy:
Man's courtrooms have convicted innocent people and taken their freedom on less evidence than is presented here for God's case. I believe they use words like "circumstantial" evidence to justify the taking of a man's freedom. If the skeptics and scientists would accept circumstantial evidence to prove the case of the existence of God it would have been a "slam dunk" many years ago.
The existence of the Earth with all of it's life support systems such as, the water cycle which provides water for plants and animals and fish while at the same time cleaning the air and cleaning the water, along with a self sustaining system of plants and animals that reproduce and evolve and feed themselves and breath in a gas that they need and breath out a gas that the other needs and then upon their death they replenish the earth with nutrients to support the next generations, not to mention an atmosphere that holds the perfect balance of gases to support life, placed within the solar system at just the right distance from the sun, and rotating at just the right speed and with just the right amount of gravity to keep from crushing us, and is in a perfect orbit to create the seasons, is, in my opinion, enough circumstantial evidence to prove or substantiate the case for God. If I were a juror on the case I would be convinced by all of this. Would You?
The complex genius of the Creator in making all of these things so is, in and of itself, proof of His existence. Has anyone ever put together such a complete combination of nature, life, and love? Has anyone else ever come up with such a philosophy that has intrigued and baffled men throughout the ages? Who's teachings are in a book (The Bible) that is the number one best seller of all time and that carries a message that is left up to the interpretation of its reader, purposely and by design. The simple truth of how it all fits is evidence in itself. It's hard to understand but at the same time it's crystal clear.
And here's another thought or two:
Our Founding Fathers left their homeland, crossed a sea, and built a Nation in order to be free to worship God. Which, by the way, grew to be the strongest Nation in the world.
Over 80% of the people in the world believe in some kind of an ultimate
God or universal Creator or Deity.
Bird wings. The bird's wing is an engineering feat that it took mankind thousands of years to copy. Man's wings are still not as effective or agile as a bird's wings.
Bugs wings, like flies or bees or butterflies. Man still hasn't mastered how bugs wings work. Even though he is trying.
The lily blooms. The lily blooms, along with about a million other flowers, are as much or more pleasant to the eye that any art created by man.
The Sky - another something amazing.
I could go on and on.
There must be something to it!
