For the lastcouple of decades, there was a topic that was always touched upon and arguedabout. It was about if God existed or not.
There always has been ongoingargument if god existed which formed many people into an atheists and theistswho are people who believe in a god or multiple gods. The main reason I thoughtabout this topic is when Nietzsche said that “God is dead, and we killed him”(pg. 463).
This topic made me inspire to write if God existed or not. For thistopic, I believe that God does exist. I have four reasons to support mystatement that God exist one is that how everything came into existence andpeople have wondered how that “thing” just happened. Second reason is that howwe humans get to have morals and values and doing what we want. The third reasonis that how we humans have states of consciousness and how it came to be. Thesereasons will show that God does exist. The final reason is that how mostlyeverything worked out for humans in this earth like it was just some big coincidenceand that everything was perfect.
The main or themost important reason that God exists is that how everything came intoexistence like how nature happened or how did the universe start. First, let’sstart with the universe. Most people know that how our earth and other planetscame to be is by the Big Bang theory.
There was a huge explosion. How there wasnothing there but slowly there was dust, water, galaxies, and planets etc. Thiswas the basically beginning of everything like space and time. It was out of this “world” I would say.This means that it’s out of human capabilities.
We can only think what seemspossible for us the humans not other supernatural power. Another example isthat how nature came to be like trees and planets. We can date back in historyof a somewhat of an idea of how it happened. We can keep going back in history,but some point it will be all the back in the beginning where we don’t know howthe trees and planets came to be just how the universe came to be. The logicalanswer to those questions is that there must be supernatural power or a beinglike a God to be able to create all these things. This reason is the main andthe important one that God does exist.
Howdid we humans get morals and values and other things in us. The second reasonthat God exists is that he gave us the humans morals and values and use them inthis world accordingly. We humans know what is right or wrong. For example, weknow it is wrong for person with a gun just shooting random people anywhere. Heis going get arrested for that and probably go to jail. However, on anaturalistic view, you could say there is nothing really wrong with thatbecause it’s just the earth’s laws and forces operating in the world. Moralsand Values are passed on ever since the beginning of time through biologicalevolution.
Many people are trying to figure out where got morals and values. Nonatural being or a human could have done this. There must be some kind ofsupernatural power out there that was able to give us the humans moral andvalues and tons of other things. The logical answer for this question is thatthere must be a God that gave us these gifts and use them in the world. Thereason is also why God exists because there are no other explanations for thisquestion. It was given to us by a supernatural power or a God. The third and the final reason the Godexists that how humans have a consciousness and have different states ofconsciousness. Many philosophers are confused and surprised by the states ofconsciousness or intentionality.
Intentionality “is the power of minds to be about, to represent, orto stand for, things, properties and states of affairs” (Jacob 1). Forinstance, I think about what I did yesterday, and I think about my sister or mygirlfriend. There is no object that is leading us to think about these things.A desk or like tissues that’s in the brain is when you think about somethingnot something else. Only the states of the consciousness are about otherthings. Many theist and philosophers say that God is a mind and a being thatput consciousness and the states of consciousness in humans. So, I argue thatGod does exist, because if he didn’t, we wouldn’t have consciousness and havemany different states, so therefore he does exist.
Lotof people have wondered how everything turned out to be perfect for them likeit was a big coincidence. The final reason is that how everything wasn’t a bigcoincidence and that God was the one that able do many things for humans tostay alive. For instance, the earth. It’s good for us.
The earth is mostly madeof nitrogen and oxygen. The atmosphere is good all living things like humans, animals,and planets. If the earth was smaller, the atmosphere will bad for us and wewouldn’t be able breath at all. The size is what made it possible. If the earthwas smaller, it would become like planet mercury. On the other side, if theearth was bigger, the atmosphere would be too much.
It would contain lot ofhydrogen like Jupiter. Our earth’s temperature swings around from -40 degreesFahrenheit to 130 degrees Fahrenheit. If we were further away like Jupiter fromthe sun, we would all freeze to death. On the other side, if we were closerlike mercury to sun, we would burn to death.
The position where earth isperfect for us. If we moved in a little bit closer or away of the sun, it wouldfatal for everybody. Even the moon is the perfect size and distance from earth.The moon makes tides for the oceans and the movement for them so that theoceans wouldn’t decline and fall upon on the land. Our water also a big question,where did it come from, nobody knows about it. All living things need water forthem to survive, its one of most things people need to live. Humans have mostlyin their water. Water helps humans to adapt to different environments such ascold and hot weather.
In humans, the water temperature in their bodies is about98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Water is neutral. There are no chemicals or any substancesto it and it has no taste. Humans use water to make food, medicines, minerals andother things to use and take in into a humans’ body.
