How can we know that God exists? Is there natural or scientific evidence that we can point to, concerning the argument for intelligent design? Can science prove or disprove the existence of God?
Below are several reasons that scientifically prove that God exists
1. The DNA Code
Bill Gates the Founder of Microsoft said that “DNA is like a software program – only much more complex than anything we’ve ever devised”.
Even Richard Dawkins who is a well-known atheist has admitted to the possibilities of intelligent design and he stated himself that genes are coded information and that genes even look like computer information.
Antony Flew was a scientist who spent his entire life in support of evolution. However when he studied the findings of genetic information in DNA, he eventually became a creationist.
The DNA code is known as the instruction book for life. DNA is a language and an information storage system.
Therefore just like a software program was designed by an intelligent designer, it makes sense that the DNA code which is far more complex was designed by a Someone who is super-intelligent.
It’s also important to note that all types of codes and all types of languages are designed or created by a conscious mind. Examples of symbolic codes can be music symbols, binary code, or blueprints. Examples of languages can be HMTL, C++, hieroglyphics, Hebrew or the English language.
Therefore all instructions, all languages, all symbols and all codes are information which originate from a conscious and intelligent source. It would make sense then to conclude that DNA comes from an intelligent source.
Imagine if you tried to convince Bill Gates that his Windows operating system could program itself into a digital information format, manufacture a case for itself, assemble a hard drive, motherboard and power supply and then run its own application software without any intelligence from an outside source.
Therefore the same conclusion is with the DNA code. The DNA code did not just create itself but DNA is evidence of a super-intelligent designer. In this case – God.
2. The Earth & Creation
The Earth is the only known planet that sustains life for humans, animals and plants. The Earth is perfect in its size; in its position in the solar system and in the gases that it contains in order to make life possible.
If the Earth was close to the sun then we would all burn up.
If the Earth was further away from the sun then we would all freeze.
Therefore the Earth’s distance from the sun is perfect while it perfectly spins and rotates around the sun.
It contains the perfect mixture of gases for life. It contains water for which no type of life-form can be sustained without a measure of water from human, to plant, to animal life.
There are not only billions of humans, but there are millions of animal and plant species whose biology and structure speak of intelligent design and not coincidence.
The structure of the Earth is therefore evidence of an intelligent designer who created the Earth.
3. The Laws of Nature
The universe operates by uniform laws of nature. We can count on the rotation of the earth every 24 hours. We can count on the laws of gravity remaining consistent. We can count on the earth being sustained in its exact position from the sun.
In fact we live in a universe that abides by the rules of mathematics. Therefore coincidence doesn’t exist.
The fact that the universe operates by laws is reflection that there is a lawgiver. The universe operates under the laws and instructions of someone intelligent.
4. The Universe had a Beginning
Scientists agree that the universe had a beginning. There are differences of course regarding who / what caused the beginning of the universe.
However, nothing CANNOT produce something.
The complexity of the structure of the universe, including life on Earth, is evidence that there was an intelligent mind behind the beginning of the universe.
Nobody has ever observed or tested “nothing” producing something.
It makes sense then that the universe had a first cause. That first cause was an intelligent being.
Is there evidence of God? Yes there is.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
