Does God exist? Please explain.
There is no way of knowing. The existence of a thing
can be conclusively proved by producing one single instance of said thing.
To put that another way, when the existence of a thing is denied, This can be proven wrong by producing one single instance of the thing said not to exist.The non-existence of a thing
can never be conclusively proved because there is always the theoretical assumption that the thing exists but has not been seen yet or it exists in a place that can not be visited. Unless all places in the universe have been visited and are being constantly observed, we can not be absolutely certain.
So from this we can say that there are only two possible outcome to be made about the existence of a thing:
1, The thing exists.
2, It is unknown if the thing exists or not.
( in a gods case it is always 2
It is not possible to prove that a thing "does not exist" without further qualifying criteria.
If a thing does NOT exist it can not leave any evidence of it's non-existence. Only things that DO exist can leave evidence. So from this we can derive that conclusive proof can only come from the person that claims that a thing exists. It is nonsensical to demand proof of non-existence.
So it is a pointless argument to ask us if a god exists, and because of the criteria above it is extremely unlikely that a god exists, but we could never be 100% sure. But 99.9 recurring we can. Given the lack of any evidence.
