God Exists

“Every account of a higher power that I’ve seen described, of all religions that I’ve seen, include many statements with regard to the benevolence of that power. When I look at the universe and all the ways the universe wants to kill us, I find it hard to reconcile that with statements of beneficence.” — Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson

A man can only say he truly believes in what he experiences himself.

Another individual or group of individuals can put words down on paper about a subject but that is not proof, it is opinion. Whether that opinion is based on measurable facts or subjective opinion is not relevant– if a person has not experienced with their own 5 senses that issue at hand, all information is merely conjecture.

I believe in God.

I say this based on firsthand experience. I have been witness to many miraculous things and experiences in the last 10 years that have drawn me to this conclusion. I don’t believe in God because of what a person or persons have written down in a book in the Middle Ages (The Bible). That is religion, not God. I am also aware that my numerous experiences with the divine could be explained by one or many scientific or coincidental circumstances. This does not preclude or prove or disprove the existence of a divine being, either.

It is a matter of faith. I understand that.

It is not a lack of scientific knowledge that drives me to the conclusion that God exists. Nor is it an acknowledgement or disavowment of the secular aspects of evolution.

It’s faith.

One cannot prove or disprove the existence of God with science, if science and physics are the tools God has used as his method for creating the firmament, and to argue that it does, as people such as Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson does, that is a denial of the truth. It is a limitation placed upon discovery and truth that a reasonable man would not do, nor should any self-professed intelligent man do.

One cannot deny what one does not know.

I therefore acknowledge the existence of God. I do not know whether there is a heaven or hell or even if its wrong to eat meat on a Friday. I can only state that I have faith that something or someone is more powerful and knowledgeable than mankind, and in all likelihood is trying to communicate or direct mankind.

That is God defined, and I believe that no thinking man, if he is honest about his own thoughts, can deny it.
