OK, The big question is there a God? My argument is that there is on several grounds.

1. The order of the universe, earth, our body etc. points to intelligence, order and love to exist beyond this planet.

2. Nothing comes from nothing and so everything must always have existed or being created from a source.

3. More than 90% of the world believes in a God and have done so in history in parts of the world that had no contact with eachother.

4. The center, governing part of the brain that chooses has not been found, pointing to a possible spiritual existance.

5. The Bible the most read book, and one of the oldest history books speak of God and a Christ who performed miracles.

6. We have emotions, intelligence, moral conscience and a consciousness is it logical that this can come from unintelligent dead material?

7. God could have created the world by use of a "Big Bang", a very probable possibility.

8. Quantum Mechanics point to a ever changing universe where even atoms change and everything is connected, pointing to that nothing is impossible.

9. Believing in God gives happiness, hope, a purpose and desire the very essence of life.

10. I have felt a spiritual connection that I cannot explain or deny, but which I know came outside of me and which felt better than anything I have ever felt.

I think God exists.



Arguments over it can go on practically forever, with no real point.

All your points are reasonable. On # 10....



I've had experiences, sometimes with other people involved as witnesses, that form the core of my belief in God. All I've read, studied, discussed with others, all pale in comparison to personal experiences.



I often ask, when I meet people of strong faith and get to know them, have you ever had a spiritual experience that you cannot explain? The answers are almost universally, "No." I don't understand how a person can have strong faith in God without having had personal experiences. I don't know that I could do that, anyway.



But for me, that's never been an issue, because the very first of these experiences happened when I was around five years old. It was powerful, and direct.

That is, quite possibly, the stupidest question ever.
Thanks from Tony

Another question is where did Benjamin Thomsen's god get the materials to create the universe? As he said, nothing comes from nothing.

Why? Because you cannot even begin to formulate an answer?

I think because he doesn't like having the scab ripped off his double standard.

Apparently a universe has to come from somewhere but a god doesn't.

The creator of this universe may have a creator, or not.



As atheists point out, not all questions can be answered at this time.
