Introduction

Does God Really Exist? The statement, "God exists," is a precisely stated proposition. Thus, it is either true or false. The simple fact is, either God exists or he does not. There is no middle ground. One cannot affirm logically both the existence and nonexistence of God. The atheist boldly states that God does not exist; the theist affirms just as boldly that God does exist; the agnostic laments that there is not enough evidence to make a decision on the matter; and the skeptic doubts that God's existence can be proven with certainty.

Conclusion

It is like if someone refuses to believe that people have walked on the moon, then no amount of information is going to change their thinking. Satellite footage of astronauts walking on the moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon rocks...all the evidence would be worthless, because the person has already concluded that people cannot go to the moon. We purely get our evidence from The Bible. The Bible is all the evidence Christians need to believe but other people may believe in other Gods and may have their own evidence to believe from. I believe in God and have evidence from The Bible but others have their own faiths to believe from, we have a lot of evidence to state that Jesus exists and that is why I believe. ...read more.
