Does God exist?
Some people believe in the existence of the God and some don’t. Some people search for eternal peace through the beliefs in God, but this is an impossible belief because of the chances the plausibility and because science is yet to prove it
IN THIS world everybody is puzzled about the creation of humanity. Some people believe in the existence of the God and some don’t. Some people search for eternal peace through the beliefs in God, but this is an impossible belief because of the chances the plausibility and because science is yet to prove it.
 
God generally refers to one supreme, holy, personal being. He is the divine unity of ultimate goodness and of ultimate reality. It was not possible to visualize the concept of this perfect being because one can only imagine an image when one has an idea of what that image is suppose to resemble. There is no idea behind the image therefore the image itself cannot exist. This is known as the ontological argument. The ontological argument is impressive to the average mind but to others its deception is clear.
 
With words like perfect, necessary and existent that are built into its definition, it seems impossible to be argued with. Even if the theist could prove in some miraculous way this perfect being’s existence, he still would not be able to link that ‘being’ to being God.
 
The argument for God’s existence from design has also generated controversy among philosophers and society. It is said that the complex order and design of the universe is obviously the work of an intelligent architect.  In Psalm 19 it’s written ‘the heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth his work’. Theists have used this well known argument [teleological] for thousands of years as strong evidence for the existence of God. The complex design of the world also points to a grand designer [God].
 
Five ways of proving which proves God’s existence are – argument from motion, efficient cause, possibility and necessity, the gradation to be found in things and the governance of the world. First argument states that nothing can be set into motion without being pushed by another or an original mover. In conclusion, since the relationship between motion and mover can’t go on to infinity, there must have been a first mover thus enhancing the possibility of the existence of the God.
 
Scientists like Darwin claimed that random mutation and natural selection was responsible for the complexities were observed in the animal kingdom. Some say that there is no way to logical link something unknown in the world with something unknown in the world. This is just a common sense to me. At best, the teleological argument can only suggest the possibility of a grand architect and can’t provide evidence that the universe was created.
 
Assuming that if the universe is randomly formed and there appears to be no design, the theist still believes there is hope within the cosmological arguments of Plato. His argument is based on the obvious. Everyday we observe things moving. Whatever moves is either moved by another or is self-moved. If a thing is self moved it must be eternal. In this argument for being a first cause, this self-mover is God.
 
Some people question that when the wind blows a hat off a person’s head, does that mean God was responsible for it? No, many things move and with modern technology and science, there is almost an answer for every movement. Ignorance to what caused the first movement should not be a reason to praise the unknown and label this first cause as God, for example, in nature, scientists time after time have tried to predict tornadoes, their next movement and how they will affect the area they hit.
