Does God Exist?

Almost every workday, there are two gentlemen where I work who discuss the existence of God. Some days are more passionate than others. They are constantly bringing up evidence or proof of their opposing beliefs. One believes that science proves God does exist by discovering: the delicate balance of nature; our unique circumstances that allows life on this planet; the incredible complexity of life itself and the programming of DNA. One believes that all these things are incredible but in no way proves the existence of God. I do believe in God. I have faith in God. But I am intrigued by the argument for and against.

I asked privately if they learn anything from their arguments. The believer said that he was learning a great deal about science. I agree. There is so much that we do not know. As soon as we think we figure something out, there is always something else beyond our reason.

I believe that God does exist. He is not only all around me but in me as well. But I can understand that some need hard evidence, and maybe even then would not be convinced. I appreciate both these people. They are thoughtful and passionate. They are friends, even though they disagree. So, even if you do not believe that God exists, I wish you well and hope that you will be well blessed.

  1. Here is the bottom line concerning whether God exists or not. The fact that people do or do not believe will not change anything any more than if a person does or does not believe if I exist or not. A persons believe or lack of belief will never affect if a person,or God, is or is not real.

    • I agree. We can always argue about truth and belief but it does not change the absolute truth or existence of anything. It is an age old question. It is interesting to me that many of us are always looking for something greater than ourselves. Thank you for commenting.

  2. I’ve often wondered why there isn’t more debate over the gender of god. What possible evidence in nature could there be for god being a man?

    • You pose an interesting question. I really don’t think God has a gender or needs one. In the Bible, God and angels are often represented as male. It was a patriarchal audience, so that might have something to do with it. I use “He” because it is generally done. The nurturing of creation is generally female centered, with very few exceptions, in nature. Thank you so much for commenting.
