Does God exist? Is there a God? These questions get people thinking and there are many things in this world—in this universe—that can answer those questions. For example, the fact that the universe has not always existed and that it had a start; the complexity of our planet points to a Creator who not only created and designed our universe, but also sustains it today; the universe operates by uniform laws of nature; and a lot more.
Our universe has not always existed, but it had a start. The question is: what caused it? Scientists believe that our universe began with the ‘Big Bang’, one enormous explosion of energy and light. They believe that everything started with this explosion: the beginning of the universe, the start of space, and even the start of time itself. Although, they do not know the cause of the explosion, meaning that there is a greater force than what they believe in: God.
The Earth, our home, the planet in which we live in, is very complex. It is the only known planet that can sustain plant, animal, and human life; it is located at the right distance from the sun; it remains this perfect distance from the sun as it undergoes rotation around the sun and as it rotates on its axis, allowing the earth’s surface to be properly cooled and warmed every day; and more. Only a supreme being as God can create and design something so complex.
Then there is man. Man—us—is also complex like the earth. In us, we have the brain, the eye, and DNA. The human brain processes and amazing amount of information all at the same time. It holds and processes all our emotions, thoughts and memories; it keeps track of the ongoing functions of our bodies like our breathing pattern, eyelid movement, hunger and movement of the muscles in our hands; it processes more than a million messages a second; and it weighs the importance of all this data, filtering out those that are relatively important, allowing us to focus and operate effectively in our world. The eye can distinguish among seven million colors; it has automatic focusing; and it handles an astounding 1.5 million messages, all at the same time. The DNA contains the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms. It is a three-billion-lettered program telling the cell to act in a certain way. In other word, it is a full instruction manual. We are just very complex, and only someone as God could create and design us in His own likeness.
So out of everything that was stated above, only one fact stands out. It is the fact that God, our mighty Creator and Father, does exist, and we should not question that.
