There Is Evidence for God

People often ask, “Can you prove to me that there is a God?” One man angrily demanded, “If there is a God and He wants me to believe in Him; then why doesn’t he come down here and show himself so that I can believe?” Yet, one wonders, even if God had suddenly appeared in front of him, would the man have believed or would he have come up with some other explanation? If he has chosen to reject the evidence for God that does exist, would anything really convince him?

Interestingly, there are many things in life that we cannot prove with absolute certainty. Yet if something is supported by overwhelming evidence, we can be certain about it, even if it can’t be absolutely proven. The existence of God is one of those things. There are so many clues that point to the existence of God that we can be certain that He exists. When taken as a whole, these clues provide overwhelming evidence for the existence of God. Here are evidences of God’s existence that stand as signposts along the journey of life.

The Evidence of Life

Many scientists today claim that the world began when life sprang from non-living matter. Yet they are powerless to explain why spontaneous life cannot be produced in their laboratories today. They are unable to replicate the creation of life, thereby proving their inferiority to a Higher Power.

The Evidence of Creation

Whatever begins to exist has a cause. The Universe began to exist. What caused it? It only makes sense to assume that it was caused by one who preceded the universe. Who but God meets that criteria? Thus, our universe, including our planet, Earth, is powerful evidence pointing to God.

The Evidence of Design

We see design and order manifested in our created world through the earth’s precise rotation on its axis, its orbit around the sun, the tides, the seasons, and the ebb and flow of life designed to correspond to earth’s movements. “The brilliant hues of sunset must give way to advancing nightfall, and the star-spangled darkness never withstands the approach of dawn. Roses, snowflakes, and rainbows are signposts pointing to the infinite beauty of God.

A doctor explained that he came to believe in God through the study of sequencing DNA patterns. He said, “I realized that such intricate patterns could never be the product of random selection; there had to be a God.”

It stands to reason that wherever one sees design, there needs be a Designer!

The Evidence of Fine-Tuning

Our earth is perfectly designed to sustain life. Its distance from the sun makes it neither too hot nor too cold. It contains a complete system of life with interdependency between its many life forms. We breathe in life-giving oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Plant-life takes in carbon dioxide and produces oxygen. The balance we see in our natural world speaks of the order and control of an all-wise God.

The Evidence of Morality

People may differ in their definitions of right and wrong, and yet they all have moral codes by which they live. Even though people may lie, steal, or kill, there is an inherent knowledge that lying, stealing, and killing are wrong. Humans also demand justice for wrongdoing. Even those who declare that God does not exist and that the Bible is merely a human fabrication have a sense of justice which closely parallels Biblical morality. This built-in sense of morality is evidence for the existence of God.

The Evidence of Desire

Mankind has an intrinsic desire for God. Atheists may claim there is no God, but all over the world people’s behavior reveals an inherent urge to worship someone or something greater than themselves. Pascal said there is a “God-shaped vacuum” within every human being—a vacuum that is longing to be filled. Augustine said, “You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you.” The universal desire to worship points to the God who made us to find our fulfillment in relationship with Him.

The Evidence of Eternity

Why do nearly all world religions teach that death is not the end? Men hope for a better life to come. Men inherently believe that life has purpose, and eternity lends purpose to our existence. The hope of eternity in man’s heart is a signpost pointing to God who is inviting all people to come inhabit eternity with Him forever.

The Evidence of a Transformed Life

One of the most powerful evidences for the existence of God is a person marvelously changed from a self-serving life of sin into a person filled with loving concern for his fellowman. Millions of people from all over the world and from all walks of life have encountered God through Jesus Christ and have been transformed by His power.

Individually, these evidences answer some specific objections to the existence of God. Taken collectively, they provide overwhelming evidence that He exists.

  1. As someone who has lost a baby to miscarriage, this billboard is painful to see when I pass it everyday and sends the exact opposite message as what you are intending. If a healthy baby’s is evidence that God exists, than what does it mean when that life is taken from you. What message does this send to grieving parents who have lost children, or those dealing with the pain of infertility. Is God less real for them? Is it proof of his inexistence? Please find a new visual for this message.

    • I am sorry to hear of your loss, and I am sorry that our billboard graphic has affected you as you have described. While the the existence of intelligent life does, I believe, indicate the reality of God, or some kind of life-giver, the loss of life demonstrates the opposite. Not the non-existence of God, but the reality of an enemy, a destroyer of life. The loss of life is something that breaks the heart of God, and in fact, the gospel story is fundamentally about the destruction of the power of sin and its consequent death and the grave, and the renewal of the possibility of enteral life for humans. John 3:16, perhaps one of the most well-known biblical passages, makes this priority of God clear. Here is the passage including the context of the passage before and after verse 16;

      Joh 3:15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.
      For God So Loved the World
      Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
      Joh 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

  2. This is simply a rehash of all the half-baked arguments for “proof” raised for centuries, and DEMOLISHED for centuries.

    Ultimately it rests on a FALSE dichotomy, one where the only choices are either God exists or God doesn’t. This is the same FALSE dichotomy which “informs” much of Anti-Theist arguments.

    (I call people who actively oppose Religion Anti-Theists to distinguish them from people who simply don’t believe in Religion. That latter are truly Atheists, the former are something else.)

    So, is there a “third way”? Of course, it lies in a simple act of Humility: admitting that we simply DO NOT KNOW! That, after all, is why Religion is a matter of FAITH. We can only have faith in (or reject faith in) things we DON’T know.

    Think of it this way. It’s ridiculous to say one has “faith” in Gravity, since we all experience it every second of our lives. But it is certainly proper we have faith in various theories ABOUT Gravity (whether Newton’s or Einstein’s) – unless we’re scientists or engineers who’ve done the necessary experiments. The rest of us simply have FAITH that what we’ve been told about those theories is correct. It’s Faith, but not BLIND Faith.

    So, in the end, it’s the Agnostics who are closer to the truth. They don’t pretend to know what may well be unknowable. Neither do they pretend that just because we don’t know means it doesn’t exist.

    • Here’s how the Bible says it. “Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. For by it our ancestors won God’s approval. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible…. Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:1-6). Read the rest of the chapter for illustrations of people who made this their motto in life.

      • Dear LB (September 21, 2020 at 3:32 pm):

        [redacted]…. The so-called “New Testament” has NO AUTHORITY so far as I’m concerned, and is “evidence” of nothing …. [redacted]

        • Then we have no common ground for further discussion. LB

        • Christopher Beland

          LB: You could certainly discuss why you think the New Testament is or isn’t a reliable source for history or cosmology or morality.

        • Yes, I could do that. However it is evident that he has no interest in what I think. He just wants to make a fool out of me, which is okay. But I have other things to do and don’t like spending my time that way. There are various posts on this site and others that make those points. My point is that if we can’t agree that the New Testament gives a reasonably accurate account of history, then we have no place of agreement to start a discussion on. It is one thing when people just believe that the NT wasn’t inspired and maybe even that God doesn’t exist. But there is lots of evidence for the veracity of the history in the NT. But thanks for the reminder.

  3. Christopher Beland

    The “Evidence of Life” section is not correct. The construction of living organisms from chemicals *has* been performed in laboratories, and simply involves the assembly of DNA, proteins, and cellular containers. The evolution of complex life from single-celled organisms took billions of years because it operates on the scale of many generations of organisms, which is why say, we can’t do an experiment to evolve rabbits from dirt in one year or something.

    • So it isn’t really science, is it? You can’t use the scientific method to prove it. At the best your results can only produce a theory which can never be proven. I haven’t posted your other comments since they have been answered many times over by people more qualified than I am. Questions about the origin of God are especially outside the scientific realm and are philosophical in nature.

  4. You see using the word “evidence”. I don’t think it means what yo think it means.

    Those thing are not evidence of a god let alone the christian god. They are empty claims. Nothing more.

    • It depends on your perspective, I suppose. The worship of chaos fits into today’s chaotic world very well. The problem is that chaos destroys. Always. The existence of beauty, music, literature, love, morality all show me an overarching power interested in my good.

  5. Thank you for being here when I needed clarification. I have peace now.

  6. I live in South Los Angeles and have to pass one of your billboards every day. What irks me is that the billboards I see show a white baby and not a African-American or Latino baby which is predominately the two cultures that live in this area. I am a white person – typical European heritage – and I find it offensive that this billboard only represents one culture – a white one – I assume God does not discern color or culture – just whether you follow a religious faith – it would be nice if you could show a baby (babies) that reflects all cultures.

    • @Lee Thanks for you comment. In my mind, a picture of a baby represents a baby, not a culture. In this sign, the baby represents life, which is one of the greatest evidences of God there is.

  7. Please learn proper English. Evidence for God means you’re trying to prove something to God like hey look a baby God. I think what you mean is evidence of God is it that hard to put together a five-word sentence. Apparently it is

    • The word “for” has the meaning that you say it does. It also has a number of other meanings. For instance:
      5. b(1) : on behalf of : REPRESENTING
      speaks for the court
      (2) : in favor of
      all for the plan
      7. : with respect to : CONCERNING
      a stickler for detail
      heavy for its size

      Either of these would allow the usage we make of it.
      – Evidence REPRESENTING God [Evidence IN FAVOR OF God]
      – Evidence CONCERNING God

    • No. It doesn’t mean that. The “for” is implied or understood (by most people). The sentence is correct. Where is your punctuation?
