Your Best Argument for God's Existence
Another argument would be for us to consider "the history of the scriptures"
that declares to us of God's existence.
Simple observation of the universe's design, order, and power shows God's existence
; but the origin of man is only explained with any reasonableness
from Genesis 1-2.
The popularity of a "big bang" turning chaotic matter into our beautiful world is nothing more than self-protecting hallucination
i.e. The Emperor's New Clothes.
The mutational theory of salamanders choosing to become bald eagles is insane, and it requires no more in the way of refutation than pointing out its nakedness
. Since there is no evidence of its truthfulness, and it is so ridiculously defended, there is no reason to waste time refuting the mere hallucinations of God-haters. Charles Darwin confused variations in finches with monkeys becoming ladies; not because he wisely proved evolution, but because he was a pagan dreamer
; and he died accordingly, doubting most everything and without hope.
Muslims think God created Adam from a dried blood clot (Koran 96:1-2). The only history
of our origin making sense is the Biblical account in Genesis, and it is consistent with all scientific evidence. For proof, check these sources: http://www.pathlights.com/ce_encyclopedia/Index.htm
An infinite Creator capable and willing to create immortal souls is easy enough, and man's present condition of slow death due to sin from Genesis 3 is most reasonable. Therefore, the existence of death is only explained adequately by the Bible
Modern pagans must do two things to convince us they are sane~explain the origin of life and the origin of death with scientific proof, reasonable evidence
, duplication, or believable authority
. Until then, we shall consider them fools. Forget dealing with death, around death, or about death; tell us its origin, purpose, accomplishment, and its remedy
; then we might listen for two minutes.
How did man learn to plant, harvest, and process the various grains for the production of food? Obviously, the African and the American Indian, among other cultures, never learned such things~and are still WAY BEHIND! God taught this knowledge to man by inspiration (Isaiah 28:23-29
). Do you have a better explanation? What happened to the first twenty generations in (well, we will not mention names on this forum) scheme, while they were learning by trial and error how to produce food?
The Bible describes a worldwide flood, which is proven by numerous methods, both scientific and historical. Whether the Grand Canyon or oral traditions and legends in many nations, the evidence for the Bible's flood is significant. If you need help with the evidence for Noah's flood, see: http://www.answersingenesis.org/home/area/faq/flood.asp
Where did so many languages~and their great diversity - come from? If not from the Tower of Babel, then where
? Did monkey speech evolve into English and Chinese in some evolutionary process? Did Darwin have a theory of natural selection for Chinese characters over our alphabet? See http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs/4190cen_d1999.asp
The Bible, recording the history of Israel, touches upon many nations and rulers, which have been found to agree perfectly with the best archeological and historical studies, though some have not been confirmed until recent archaeological finds. If you love to see God and His Word vindicated, then see the following links.http://www.grmi.org/renewal/Richard_Riss/evidences/4archaeology.html
We have a seven-day week, because God gave it to Adam and wrote it in the Bible
~the ONLY reason we have it! The hours in a day, the days in a month, and the days in a year are all based on astronomical movements of the sun (from our perspective), earth, and moon. But the only explanation for all nations and languages perpetually observing a seven-day week is based on the creation account and week determination given in the Bible
(Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:8-11; 31:17
). Noah, being a man who walked with God (Genesis 6:9
), brought the seven-day week through the flood
. Moses, being God's messenger for the establishment of national and public worship in Israel, established the ceremonial requirements of the seventh day. This point alone could be enough to convince a reasonable man of the Bible and ITS AUTHOR and HIS EXISTENCE. What do others say about the origin of the seventh day?
