Does God exist?
Yes. I'll provide evidence for God's existence as well as provide you with the means by which you can realize Him yourself.
Evidence for God's Existence
There is a whole host of evidence that supports the existence of God. While it's difficult to prove or disprove the existence of God through material means, one can at least show that the possibility of God's existence is highly probable. When the facts are are laid out in front of someone, they can make the decision for themselves whether or not they think God exists. However, maybe I'm biased, but when you look at everything, the possibility of God existing makes far, far, more sense then the possibility that He doesn't exist.
- Life Comes From Life - In our experience in this world, we find that every living being has come from another living being. In other words life comes from life. Life does not come from matter. Now, you may think, "man, this guy is so uneducated, doesn't he know about the Miller-Urey experiment." Yes, I am in fact aware of the Miller-Urey experiment, the one where they created amino acids, the building blocks of life, from various chemical reactions. Scientists use this experiment to show how the original living beings could have first arisen. If this experiment is indeed how the basis of life was formed, then it would show the life can come from matter. However, there is one major problem with this experiment. Recent scientific evidence now shows that the conditions that the experiment was conducted under, are not the same conditions as the conditions as Earth's original atmosphere. Therefore, this experiment fails to explain how life first arose because it could only create amino acids under conditions that weren't present when life was posited to have first been created. Those same scientists admitted they still haven't found the answers to how first arose on Earth. Even now, scientists have not managed to produce life from any matter or combination of chemicals. However, following the logical train of thought that life comes from life. It makes far more sense for the original life on this Earth to have come from another living source - God. This leads me into my next point.
Just a cool little story I thought you all might enjoy and be encouraged by Einstein's use of logic to prove that God can exist.
An atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. 'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?'
'Yes sir,' the student says.
'So you believe in God?'
'Is God good?'
'Sure! God's good.'
'Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?'
'Are you good or evil?'
'The Bible says I'm evil.'
The professor grins knowingly. 'Aha! The Bible! He considers for a moment. 'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?'
'Yes sir, I would.'
'So you're good...!'
'I wouldn't say that.'
'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'
The student does not answer, so the professor continues. 'He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?'
The student remains silent. 'No, you can't, can you?' the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax 'Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?'
'Er..yes,' the student says.
'Is Satan good?'
The student doesn't hesitate on this one. 'No.'
'Then where does Satan come from?'
The student falters. 'From God'
'That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?'
'Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?'
'So who created evil?' The professor continued, 'If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.'
Again, the student has no answer. 'Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?'
The student squirms on his feet. 'Yes.'
'So who created them?'
The student does not answer again.
'Tell me,' he continues onto another student. 'Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?'
The student's voice betrays him and cracks. 'Yes, professor, I do.'
The old man stops pacing. 'Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?'
'No sir. I've never seen Him.'
'Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?'
'No, sir, I have not..'
'Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?'
'No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't.'
'Yet you still believe in him?'
'According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist... What do you say to that, son?'
'Nothing,' the student replies.. 'I only have my faith.'
'Yes, faith,' the professor repeats. 'And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence...only faith.'
The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of His own. 'Professor, is there such thing as heat? '
'And is there such a thing as cold?'
'Yes, son, there's cold too.'
'No sir, there isn't.'
The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain. 'You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can hit d own to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, 'cold' is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.'
Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.
'What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?'
'Yes,' the professor replies without hesitation.. 'What is night if it isn't darkness?'
'You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?'
The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester. 'So what point are you making, young man?'
'Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.'
The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. 'Flawed? Can you explain how?'
'You are working on the premise of duality,' the student explains.. 'You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but it has never seen, much less fully understood either one . To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.'
'Now tell me, professor.. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?'
'If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.'
'Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?'
The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.
'Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?'
'To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean.' The student looks around the room. 'Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?' The class breaks out into laughter. 'Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.' 'So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?'
Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. 'I guess you'll have to take them on faith.'
'Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life,' the student continues. 'Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?' Now uncertain, the professor responds, 'Of course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.'
To this the student replied, 'Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist onto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.'
The professor sat down.
PS: The student was Albert Einstein .
Albert Einstein wrote a book titled God vs. Science in 1921...
Where there is a creation ,there is a creator.
I know it's a long story but do give it a read.
Einstein gave all the answers to your doubts and questions about the existence of God .
Thanks for reading it!!
The proof that God exists is that without Him you couldn't prove anything!
A Counter rhetorical question for you... Do you think the Universe would be the same organized and perfectly ordered one without believing the existence of the powerful entity (Almighty)?
1.) Mathematical proof of God
It is an ontological proof which was first proposed by Kurt Godel
A couple of days back, at a puja ceremony at my home, during a never ending squabble on the existence and non-existence of unearthly deities, this aunt of mine got rather inquisitive.
Aunty: So, do you really believe in ghosts, beta !?
Me: Well, I've not encountered any. And moreover, I choose to be in denial rather than regret.
Me: What about you?
Aunty: Ghosts! Nah..
She said, almost recklessly
Aunty: And GOD?
Me: Which one? Saraswati, Durga, Kaali or the male ones- Shiva, Hanuman and all!?
Aunty: Its a disgrace calling them without their honorific!
Me: Oh! Sorry. Saraswati ji, Durga ji, Kaali ji, Shiva ji, Hanuman ji and all ji's.
I remarked. She, rather irked by my answer-
Aunty: So, you are trying to tell me that you don't believe in God. You are an Atheist?
She asked, with the mixed expression of smirk and disgust. And, believe me, she had already synonymised me being an atheist to somebody who is on a war against God.
I just do not worship a deity as an idol. You can call me an atheist, if you please. That doesn't mean that I am inhumane or diabolic. Its just that I condemn the rituals, that by human definition, are supposed to please some god's clay idol. I just believe in my own intellect and believe you me, I am all good to go!
Belonging to the Indian origin, being surrounded by a flock of Gods and Goddesses, with my mom worshipping twice a day, one can be taken aback by such heterodox thinking of mine. Few years back, even I used to light two agarbattis (sometimes, three or four on special occasions) and chanted mantras to get a high score in my board exams. I don't exactly recall what diverted my mind. My mother says its just out of my laziness that I don't worship. But who shall explain it to her that I do worship, I just stopped lighting agarbattis.
Well, honestly speaking, I don't have an aversion towards any God. I just don't find their die-hard fans/devotees pragmatic. I do believe in a positive and also a negative power surrounding this world as a nimbus, but I just follow the former one. I believe that both these powers reside within one's own intellect, that when you murmur ‘Hey Bhagwan', its the positive power that gets activated. Its not the words that do the magic, but your belief in the magic that does the work! Those endless ballyhooing of devotees depicting their patent loyalty toward God..its just not my style! Things like- you should not worship after eating or if you're down with menstruation are beyond my naive mind. I do not care if the diya goes out, neither am I afraid of dying for not paying a pandit an exorbitant sum he demanded. I am on my own and I can proudly say that.
Something that really makes you nearer and dearer to God is not the lavish ‘Jagarata' you organise, but your deeds. Mr. Dubey involved in a scam is also one die hard fan of Goddess Durga. He thinks that organising ‘Mata ki Chowki' every Friday will wash away his fouls and save him from the misery. Mrs. Verma just returned from a pilgrimage spot, after tying a stone in a red cloth to this wish-fulfulling banyan tree as a resemblance of her ‘Mannat' for her daughter so that she gets a good groom. These are the frightened devotees taking painstaking efforts to please God and fulfil their wishes.
I too wish. But my priorities are a little different. I do not want God to go out of his way to fulfil my wish. I just wish ‘wellness'. I just wish my works are carried on swiftly without ambiguity, given that I too work religiously. I stay myself and I stay fortunate most of the times. If not more, then definitely not less than his so called fans. Even if things don't go my way, I am the one liable to it. I try not to hurt anyone , do good and be fair. I sympathize with the poor. Though I don't go off my limits and donate them simply because at the present, I CAN'T. At the same time, I also don't believe in donating my old discarded belongings to the poor in the name of charity. Its not actually charity, its just getting rid of of the things you have already discarded.
So, to sum up, I just stay myself, be truthful and believe in my intellectual power. You can call me an Atheist, if these traits of mine go along with the conventional definition, but I definitely don't hate God.
If I say yes then the question will be, Where is he?
God is the flow in the rivers.
God is there sprouting in humans in the form of kindness and love.
God is there in the humming of the bees.
God is there loving you.
We cannot find him this is the truth. We can realize him.
God resides inside us. God is not a person.
God is faceless. We humans give him a form.
We call him Krishna in Hinduism.
We call him Jesus in Christianity.
We call him Allah in Islam.
We cannot find him in the temple. We cannot find him in the holy script.
We can find him inside us.
When Mohandas Gandhi realized this he became Mahatma.
When Narendranath realized this he became Swami Vivekananda.
When Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu realized this she became Mother Teresa.
When Gautama realized this he became Buddha.
When Karol Józef Wojtyła realized this he became Pope John Paul II.
When we look within, we understand him. We understand everything.
Let us take an example, Raja enters a room which is fully illuminated by a tube light. But, Raja being an atheist blindfolds himself and loudly proclaims there is no light. Will the light vanish? No!
It will be eternally present. That light is God and the cloth used to blindfold our eyes is science.
I can prove that atheist is the biggest believer in God. Atheist believe in work and work is worship. When we worship, we acknowledge the omnipresent God. As God says, "Karma is Dharma".
Why is he not helping humans?
Easy, We humans are all hypocrites. We are little egoistic, brainless species. We build walls, doors, machines in the name of development. We call those things technology. Technology has enslaved us, we stick to the screen for hours. Destroying our health, memory and vitality. Science created atom bombs, nuclear bombs and you see the destruction caused by them!
We are doing everything wrong. We are going against the nature. We first dump sewage from household into the water bodies then we set up factories to clean the water bodies. Later we pay the price for the purified water. What is the use of dumping sewage into the water?
WE NEVER INTROSPECT!
But God is really kind. He still loves us. He has given us a body which can heal itself.
When there is a cut, blood coagulates.
When darkness persists, he comes to us in various forms like Lord Krishna, Jesus Christ, Allah.
When night comes, he ensures that the sun is rising the next day.
Do you know what will happen if the sun is not rising?
Although no one can know for sure exactly what would happen, scientists estimate that the average global surface temperature would drop below 0º F within a week or so. You've probably withstood such temperatures during cold winter months before, so what's the big deal?
The problem is that the temperature would continue to drop steadily. Within a year, the average global surface temperature could dip well below -100º F! By that time, the top layers of the oceans of the world would have frozen over.
Although the frozen top layers of the oceans would insulate the deep waters below, keeping them liquid for hundreds of thousands of years, they would eventually freeze as Earth moved toward a stable average global surface temperature of about -400º F. At that point, the atmosphere would have also frozen and fallen to Earth, leaving anyone left alive exposed to the harsh cosmic radiation that travels through space.
Without the Sun's rays, all photosynthesis on Earth would stop. All plants would die and, eventually, all animals that rely on plants for food - including humans - would die, too. While some inventive humans might be able to survive on a Sun-less Earth for several days, months, or even years, life without the Sun would eventually prove to be impossible to maintain on Earth.
Can I prove the existence of God?
No I cannot prove something which is beyond the game of hypothesis and proof !
But yes I will try. Everything that is written in Hindu holy book is real.
Denying God is equivalent to denying consciousness.
Archaeological Survey of India has reported relevant stuff from Hastinapura.
Located on the right bank of an old bed of the Ganga, known in literature and tradition as the capital of the Kauravas of the Mahabharata fame. On the bank of the Budhi Ganga, two places known as Draupadi Ghat and Kama Ghat remind one of the Mahabharata personages. Three Jaina tirthankaras, Sailtinatha, Kunthunatha and Aranatha, are believed to have been associated with Hastinapura.
Excavations were conducted at Hastinapura in 1950-52 by B.B.Lal on behalf of the ASI. Five Periods (I -V) of occupation with a break between each have been identified. Period I is represented by the sproadic occurrence of sherds of the OCW in a deposit of brown clay which imperceptibly merges into the natural soil underneath, with no other sign of habitation. Because of its likely association with the Mahabharata, times it is Period II that brings Hastinapura into the limelight. Archaeologically the material culture of this Period is known as the PGW culture after the very distinctive ceramic industry of the times.
Hastinapur, between Meerut and Mawana in Uttar Pradesh, is now a forgotten village, but excavations in 1952 revealed the existence of Vidur-ka-tilla (Vidura's palace), Draupadi-ki-rasoi (Draupadi's kitchen) and Draupadi Ghat (for bathing), besides copper utensils, iron seals, ornaments made of gold and silver, terracotta discs and several oblong-shaped ivory dice used in the game of chauper.
Iron objects numbering 135, and which included arrow and spearheads, shafts, tongs, hooks, axes and knives indicate the existence of a vigorous industry. There are indications of brick-lined roads and drainage systems, and an agro-livestock based economy. The PGW of Hastinapura has been assigned to 1100-800 BC. The events of the Mahabharata probably occurred around 1000-900 BC.
Mahabharata did happen. Srimad Bhagwat Gita is real. Hence, God is existing.

Now I will use science to explain this.
It is said, "SEEING IS BELIEVING".
We humans can see only from 4000 angstrom to 7000 angstrom.
Does that means ultraviolet radiation, infrared radiation and other waves are not present?
We humans can hear from 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz.
Does that means infrasound and ultrasound are not there?
We humans cannot see the atoms and molecules through our naked eyes.
Does that mean they are not there?
Science gave us electron microscope so that we can see those minute particles. But we are still unable to explore the vast universe. We live in a small particle which revolves around a small sun among millions of sun !
Science has to explore a lot as there are billions of galaxies.
Science is a kid who is climbing a mountain and God is the person who is sitting at the top observing the kid, laughing at him.
There is a science beyond science, where every disease is curable through healing. We call it Shiv Yog. Internationally ShivYog is endorsed. Indian government has endorsed him. Doctors have endorsed him. Just because he has tuned himself with the divinity he is able to heal others!
He always says, "Every disease is curable".
Sadhguru Jaggi is another powerful mystic. He is endorsed by the United Nations. He does many things which are impossible. He understood the divinity and he is now sharing the wisdom.
When I read The Autobiography of a Yogi. I was astonished by the miracles performed by the saints. They could levitate in the air, switch bodies, do telepathy and what not! I studied the science behind it. I found out only because they acknowledge God, they are able to do it.
When Paramhansa Yogananda died, his body did not decay for many days. Science cannot explain this.
Science cannot explain how yogi levitate in the air.
Science cannot explain why the Yogi of Tanjore remains in the fire unharmed. (He is alive you can visit him doing the act).
In Hinduism, we already knew the distance between the sun and the earth before anyone could measure it.
We knew about the music present in the cosmos.
We knew about mathematics, biology, physics and more.
We have a big branch of Veda named Ayurveda, which deals with healing.
We knew a lot of things before their discovery. I can rationally prove it.
Now our science is searching for the God particle. Oh my dear ones, God is there in every particle.
Science is accepting Quantum Healing,
We should acknowledge we are little human being.
Ramanujan did wonders in Mathematics,
Do you know he was taught by Goddess Namagiri in his dreams?
Richard Feynman said science cannot disprove the existence of God,
Are we ready to believe in the presence of God?
Does God exists? YES ! YES AND A YES!
