God’s existence has been a topic of discussion for believers and non-believers alike. When discussing the existence of God one must consider the acceptance of Him by faith. If one does not have belief and trust no argument given for His existence will be accepted. The proof of God’s existence even goes beyond our planet and into the universe. The universe, the place where scientists believe time began. Many times we tend to overlook the simple things that are in front of us as signs of God’s existence. From time to gravity, which all falls into the laws of nature, are complex but simples signs that surround us on a day to day basis.
To begin with, the Merriam-Webster dictionary website defines faith as “strong belief or trust in someone

To have faith is to believe in His existence, to have trust in Him, and to have confidence in Him. Our faith in God is the relationship between those that believe and the love for God.

Another important point, Augustine believes, is that those that do not believe in God simply do not want to believe. In addition, many articles are written for or against the existence of God. Marilyn Adamson wrote an article in 2010 on reasons why God exists. He begins with our universe, especially earth since is a perfect planet. The earth’s size and its gravity which has a layer of nitrogen and oxygen that extends 50 miles about the earth’s surface is perfect. If the Earth were too small, the atmosphere would be impossible. If earth were bigger, it would contain free hydrogen and any living thing would not survive. When looking at the earth’s distance from the sun, it is placed perfectly. If the earth were closer we …show more content…
Evaporation is not thought of as a sign of God because it occurs around the world every day and would only occur to us if it stopped. The same thing goes with gravity, it is not thought of, gravity is just there. Earth is unique in this sense. The rotation of the Earth is like clockwork. The earth rotates in 24 hours, not a second more or a second less. These laws of nature never change. The sun rises and sets every day. An article by Rick Avent states, “All physical sciences are based on natural law.” Scientists, during their investigations of the physical environment, attempt to reveal the duplication, uniform principles that describe the “existence and interactions of all matter, from the smallest particles within the atom to the relationships described in cosmology.” These natural laws are too many to count. “Natural laws describe the functioning of all biological systems in all living things.” One starts to wonder when natural law began. Better yet, where did they come from? Did they become to be during the big bang? Just as Avent states, “Laws require a Lawgiver.” The Lawgiver is
