The Existence of God
The Existence of God
A definition of God is as follows:
God-The infinitely perfect Supreme Being, uncaused and absolutely self-sufficient, eternal, the Creator and final end of all things. The one God subsists in three equal Persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit.
The non-existence of God cannot be proven through science because Christianity and science have no connection except for the fact that the are both religions. Also, science is proven through tests and experiments there is no way to experiment God or even to prove the existence of Napoleon. You can't go back in history and bring them back. However, just because this can't be proven it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.
The paradox of God building a wall so heavy even he couldn’t lift it is a weak argument. If God were to build a wall so heavy even he couldn’t lift it, it would make the wall more powerful than God. Hence making the wall God, since the definition of God is that he is all-powerful. God could do whatever he wants but why would he want to diminish his own power.
The argument :
If God is all-powerful, he could do anything possible. Yet, it is impossible to add 2 and 2 together and get 9.
is not a valid point. It is humanly impossible to add 2 and 2 together and get 9 but Jesus, which believers believe to be the same being as God, did take 2 fish and five loaves of bread and feed 5,000 people. The average person then could have probably eaten the two fish and five loaves himself. So the bread and fish were multiplied into over 10,000 fish and 25,000 loaves of bread with 12 baskets full left over. That doesn’t humanly add up.
This would conclude that 2 plus 2 could make nine, with God, and therefore he can do things far out of human grasps.
Because God is eternal and uncaused, he has no need for a creator since he is the ultimate creator. Look at the law of cause and effect. Every cause has an effect and every effect has a cause. R.C. Spoule explains, “being eternal God is not an effect. Since he is not an effect he needs no cause and is therefore uncaused.”
If God had a cause that wouldn’t make him God, it would make his creator God. So, we as humans and the universe itself are effects which must have had a cause.
1. A set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.
2. A specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects.
3. The body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices.
The definition of religion implies that science is also a religion. Therefore, this would mean that science is a religion. According to “Andy” religions cause wars so science causes war too. I personally believe it does. Science has given us bombs all types or bombs and guns. Without science/chemistry, we couldn’t have had any type of weapon of this sort. However, I also believe that it’s the people and how they use their religion not the religion that causes the wars. I also disagree that the world would be a better place had the Israelis not been given any land. Once again it is the people not the land which create wars. The Israeli people would still have existed they just wouldn’t be called Israelis and the people would have done the exact same thing or worse, they could have had a big revolution and caused a bigger problem.
I’ve proven several times, in this document that God is all powerful, God does have complete control over our lives He just allows us to make choices in our lives because he’s not a puppet master. He gives us a choice whether we do right or wrong, follow his rules or ignore them. This, usually, is what causes the good or bad we face. If you do something wrong you deserve punishment. However, God does not make evil, Satan does. God allows it to happen because without suffering no one would ever know compassion. This doesn’t change that God still has the power to change or do whatever he wants.
“The Big Bang is a scientific enigma; nobody knows how it came around.”
is just as much blind faith as believing in a God that you cannot possibly see. The big bang is also more explanatory on how the earth became than creation is. The Bang “theory”, if it can be called a theory, goes through a bunch of crap about how millions of atoms did this and that and then some monkeys came from things that came from other things, five hundred times, that came from amoebas over hundreds of thousands of years. But creation God created the earth in 6 days and all he did was speak and the earth is less than 3000 years old.
In conclusion, I think that this essay should have completely destroyed “Andy’s” essay on the non-existence of God, in all except the fanatics who simply have blind faith in something that cannot be proven like the big bang theory.
