Does God exist? Of course my answer would be a resounding yes! I know this because I talk with Him daily. I also know He exists because the Bible says He exists. I realize that these are not reasons that many people will accept. You may say that, based on these comments, that I am a Christian fanatic. Thank you, I’ll accept that designation.
However, I would like to present some observable, definite proofs that God does in fact exist.
There are between 200 billion and 400 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. Each of these stars circles a galactic center in an orderly fashion. Recent observation from the Hubble telescope has shown over 3,000 visible galaxies in the universe. A recent German super-computer simulation estimates that the number may be as high as 500 billion. Assuming the median of the number of stars in the Milky Way (300 billion) that makes the estimated number of stars in the known universe somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 quintillion (15,000,000,000,000,000,000). “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands have made.” (Psalm 19.1) Did all of these stars just create themselves? And how did they all manage to form themselves into orderly galaxies and solar systems? This doesn’t even begin to count the potential number of planets.
In the galaxy there are a multitude of particles called quarks. There are supposed to be six types of quarks and each quark has an anti-quark. These particles are smaller than the electron, proton and nucleus components of an atom. They have very unusual behaviors that look as though they defy the laws of rational physics. These particles, along with the “super-strings” they are supposed to bind together, are still a mystery just being discovered by scientists. While little is known about these particles, many scientists are rethinking their “bang” theories and wondering how all of this could have “just happened.”
We have to look no further than here on the earth for more proofs. Biologists have described and named more than one million species of animals, and some biologists believe that there are several million to ten million more species that remain to be discovered, classified, and named. Each of these animals is different and unique. There are over 400,000 known plant species today and more are being discovered and catalogued all the time. What an amazing world we live on. Of course it is a stretch of the imagination to believe that this all just happened. It is an amazing world; one created and lovingly looked after by the Master Creator, God. It’s man (and sin) who has caused all of the bad things that have happened to this planet.
Next, I would like to look at the human body. What a marvelous machine – self-repairing, self-defending against invasion. Each adult human body has over 100 trillion individual cells (100,000,000,000,000). The largest of these cells is the fertilized egg or ovum. Even this cell is so small that it requires a microscope to see. I point out this cell in particular because all of these unique individual cells that compose the heart, lungs, skin and other parts of the human body all began as a single fertilized egg. The human body is so amazing that it completely regenerates itself approximately every seven years. Due to this amazing feature it seems that the human body was designed to last eternally. There are components of the human body that are specifically designed to repel intruders and other components that are specifically designed to keep the body internally clean. This, according to some, just happened.
I have to admit that there are those who will accuse me of using sloppy science. There are also those who will say that this essay is slanted toward theism. The answer is no to both. It’s not sloppy science, because it’s not science. It an explanation based on science. It’s not slanted towards theism; it’s slanted towards the Judeo-Christian belief that “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) I have addressed only the existence of God, based on His creative work in the universe. We cannot physically see God, so we look at His handiwork. Yes, I am a Christian fanatic. I love God and I believe that He is the only way that the universe could exist, as we know it does. I hope this presentation will cause you to think and ask questions.
