God of the universe exists in many ways
Religius discussions, God exists.
Welcome to our article (10), God exists because life exists
May God help and guide me to write the right things?
Dear readers, in this article, we are discussing about the existence of God. We know that this question has been asked several thousands of times before, and people believe that God exists.
But the atheists say that God does not exist, and that God and religions are an invention of our human mind. But we must disagree with them because we believe that God needs to exist. However, the atheists could be right to believe that religions are manmade, but that does not mean that God does not exist. Because for the believers God must exist, because God is life.
So, let us talk about the existence of God; and prove to the atheists God’s existence. Looks like that we must build up the proof of God’s existence by discussing our beliefs in several ways. This is what we are doing, and we have done in other articles like, Prayers for Reconciliation. I believe that this article will be a long one, because we want to prove that God exists, and one way to prove that is that we should believe that God is life itself.
Now, in this article we are talking about the following items: We can prove that God exists; How can we prove God’s existence; God exists at least by definitions; God exists because life exists; About the existing religions; How can we prove that God exists.
Today we need a different God description.
We can prove that God exists
We know that God’s existence and religious beliefs are hard to prove, since every one of us believe in our own ways, and some of us do not believe in God and some of us do. But I believe that we need God and religions, because we have needed God and religions since the beginning of times.
Now, we must say that we believe in the existence of God, but today what has prompted me to write this article, is the fact, that I have found on the Internet people that believe in religion like I do. But I must admit that those people are well educated, because they write in a scholarly way. Anyhow, this make me apprehensive, however, I am going ahead and write my own religious beliefs, because beliefs are beliefs, and your own beliefs are your beliefs and nobody else.
So, today I am writing how God exists, because I believe that God really exists, even if God only exists because God is life and the definition of life, so, God must be the essence of the existence of life in the universe. To prove that other people believe that God exists, I am going to publish at the end of this article one of those articles I found on the Internet.
Anyhow, here we want to talk about the existence of God and prove that God really exists. So, how can we prove that God exists?
How we can prove God's existence
We need to prove God’s existence, because we need God to exist to live a meaningful life; so, we are claiming that God exists at least by definition, and God exists because life exists.
People want to believe in God because it is a noble thing to do, and gives the believer a good feeling, whether this good feeling is due to the ways that we have been taught, we are not sure; but we know that believing in God is helpful to us, and this is one of the reasons why we like to believe in God. But today religious beliefs are changing, there are the atheists that say that God does not exist, and they believe that mankind has invented God to serve their own personal purpose, so, what should we believe, one may ask?
Well, I suppose that we must look at the beginning of the existing religious beliefs, to see what the reasons are, for mankind to believe in God.
When we look at our written history, we find that humanity has believed in gods and religions since the beginning of this current Era, therefore, since we became the predominant specie on earth, because of our higher intelligence.
Anyhow, by using our intelligence and thoughts, we wanted to believe that there were gods for various reasons; one of these reasons is that god must be able to help us, if we needed help or protection from anything that is stronger than ourselves, including those spiritual things that are supplied by our own imagination; therefore, many gods and many religions have arisen from this inner need that we feel within ourselves, because of our feeling of insecurity, plus the need that we wanted to know why we are living on this planet earth.
However, we have evolved and reached the point where we feel more secure; therefore, we do not need as much protection from God, as we did before. So, the atheists start questioning us, if God exists, or it is an invention of our human mind, invented to make us feel secure in the past.
Therefore, it follows that if we believe that God exists, then we need to prove that God exists in a way or the other. You see, we want to prove that God does exist, because we believe that we need God even today. So, we need to prove that God exists and there is no doubt about it?
We know that it is not going to be easy to convince everybody that God exists, but we must find a way, because I know that God exists, as we are going to explain hereunder.
Now, as we have said, I have been prompted to write this article about the existence of God, not only because I believe that God exists; but also, because I have found on the Internet a few people that believe in religion very much like me. So, today to prove to the world that God exists, I am going to write how God exists, even if God exists at least by definition as being life.
Wanting to define God of the future as person
God exists at least by definition
We believe that God must exist. You see, God exists because you and I exist, if God did not exist then you and I could not exist. Therefore, we can say that life is God and God is life itself, so, one cannot exist without the other; these are our beliefs and theory of how God exists.
In this theory, God may not be like the God described in the Bible, therefore, it follows that if God is not like the God described in the Bible; What could be God like then? Well, as we have said, God and life exist in a parallel way to one another, so, they can be one and the same thing.
So, let us describe one of our spiritual theories, which can be the one that everybody can accept more willingly than the rest. So, we say, that God must exist at least by definition, since we believe that God is the definition of life, and life exists.
Anyhow, in our theory of Reconciliation of the Universe, God is the modifier of the existing life forces of the universe and through God-life-force, life is made possible on earth. So, we can say that God exists at least by definition, because we believe that God is life and life is God himself.
You see, if we exist, then there should be a life force that makes life possible, otherwise we would not exist? Now, it follows that we need to give a name to the existing life force of the universe that makes life possible on earth, so, what other name can we give to this life force? Perhaps God is the only name that is suitable to describe this life force.
Did you hear what I have said? What other name can we give to the life force that makes life possible on earth? Therefore, God exists at least by definition and there is no doubt about it.
We must accept that there is God, even if God is the definition of life, or the life force that makes life possible on earth. Therefore, God exists because life exists.
God exists because life exists
Now, if we believe that God exists because life exists, therefore, God exists at least by definition, being the definition of life itself. You see, we need to accept that God is life, and life is God himself; otherwise instead of asking who is God, we would be asking what is life, and where does life come from? It is like a chain that links one link to another, and it cannot be separated, because everything in the universe forms a cycle, And God and life form a never-ending cycle that makes life possible on earth.
Anyhow, we must accept that God and life cannot be separated, because they are one and the same thing. Because how else can we explain the existence of life and how life came about?
Anyhow, we believe that we have two or three choices here, ether we must accept that God created life on earth, as major religions describe God; or life and God is one and the same thing. You see, there is no other way how we can explain the existence of life on earth by logic reasoning? The third way is that there must be an endless source of life energy in the universe that makes life possible; so, life can self-start by using this existing energy. But if this life energy is not there, then life cannot exist. However, we know that there is life on earth, because we are alive and exist, if we did not exist then I would not be writing this article. But what can we call this life energy? Perhaps God is the only appropriate name that we can give to this life energy.
So, God exists and there is no doubt about it.
Now, I can hear you protesting and saying, but this is not anything like our God Yahweh described in the Bible. We know that, so, we are going to explain this future God, when we write ‘Reconciliation of the Universe’ theory.
Anyhow, now we want to talk about the existing religions, and the effect that our religious theory can have on them. So, let us talk about the existing religions
Moses and the burning shrub
Talking about the existing religions
In these religious articles, we have reached a stage where we must accept that, God is life and exists at least by definition. Now, once we have accepted that; we need to ask, what about the existing gods and religions? Are these existing religions that we have today lies? The answer to that is No, they are not lies, and we must also keep in mind, that because we have been linked to them, they have permanently become our spiritual portal to God, so we cannot dismiss them.
In the past when unexplainable events took place, people thought that it was a god sent event, and wrote it down. For instance, Yahweh God of the Israelite appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai as a burning shrub and said to Moses that He was (Yahweh) God. We have to believe that this is true and other events after that were also true; but then a lot of things became exaggerated as the time went by, so, every writer that re-wrote this event said what he thought was right; you see, those writers that wrote the events could only express those events, as good as their knowledge was, and they had to make it as simple as they could, so, the people of those times would understand what they were talking about, they had also to write those events in such a way that they were able to control the people, since religions are very good at controlling people.
Of course, we must admit that the leaders of those time used any means available to control their people, and they saw that religions could control their people and they did. So, the writers had to design religions in such a way that the people could be controlled, because that was the easiest way to control them. You see, people then were more violet then today, they had to be strong and aggressive because that was the only way to survive. So, religions were helpful and were the best non-violent means to control people.
Today people believe that we have reached the age of reason; but only part of us have reached that age of reason. You see, there are religions that oppose progress, so, they have stopped evolving and believe in their religions as they did a thousand years ago.
Now, when we talk about the age of reason, we want to say that we have evolved to a high level of consciousness and therefore, we are ready to use our logic reasoning mind to a greater degree than we have done in the past, so, everything that does not stand to our logic reasoning will be rejected, therefore, existing religions that need to be modified, will be modified.
How can we prove that God exists?
Now, let me go back to what I found on the Internet. Just to show you an example, hereunder is what T. Latham at hub pages says in answer to one of my questions about the existence of God; my questions in hub pages were: How do you know that God exists? The atheists say that there is no God. Can we prove them wrong?
Can we prove that God exists? This is one answer I have received to my question.
This is what T. Latham said in answer to my questions, and I quote:
Dr. Frank J. Tipler, a Mathematics and Physics Professor at Tulane University, proves that not only does God exist, but that the universe will be resurrected, and every living soul will be resurrected to face God (Omega Point), and live eternally.
The theory is explained, and proven in his book, "The Physics of Immortality." Tipler uses Math and Physics to prove the theory, and he also makes the comparison by using a cone placed upside down, showing the universe, the earth and its inhabitants, residing at the bottom, or large base of the cone, and God sitting at the top or uppermost point of the cone, which he calls "The Omega Point."
The book is a hard read for someone lacking a science background, but Tipler has finally made a connection between Science and Creation and proves his theory with Math and Physics.
Mine is not a proven theory, but I feel there is a connection with Einstein's Theory E = mc2. God exists as:
The Trinity (three separate or distinct entities under one Godhead).
E = Energy (God) Father
m = mass (Jesus Christ) Son
c = Speed of Light (Holy Spirit) Mother
End of quote.
Can we prove that God exists? This is the question.
Thanks to the answer of T. Latham at Hub pages today I am writing this special hub, which is outside my existing religious writings that I am publishing as I write them, so, this hub may not fit as a continuity of my published writings, but it deals with the same subject, therefore, it can stand side by side.
Having said that; now I have to say why I am writing it; it is because I believe that God may well be as Dr. Frank J. Tipler describe, just like in my theory of, Reconciliation of the Universe, which I am writing and publish on the net, my God is somehow like Dr. Frank J Tipler.
Anyhow, modifying existing religions sounds like troubles, even if you believe that they need to be modified; so, we are going to write our theory of reconciliation of the universe, at the end of our religious writings.
This theory of Reconciliation of the Universe is written in simple English, just because I do not know any better, sometimes I think that it is the will of God that a simple self-taught person like myself feels the need to write these important God things. Then I think that God wants an unlearned person to write religious things, because God wants all sorts of people to understand what is written in the coming new system; God wants that because everybody can understand what is being said, and because it is easy to translate in a new language. So, there is the need for a simple written religious book, which would be easily translated in those simple languages.
What Dr. Frank J Tipler and other learned writers are writing is great for all those learned people that can understand them; but for the simple people our theory could be better. Perhaps this is God's will, and I have to write my religious articles.

Hi Mohamed ashour, thanks for your comment and your link that could be helpful if used to learn religions. But I want to point it out to you; today the world needs a religion that connect all existing religions together. We need a God that loves everybody, not a God that tells us what to do. You see in all religions, we have described God the way we would like God to be like, that is the problem that needs to be solved.

Hello frank, thanks for your prompt response to my comment. Do you have a coined label for our line of reasoning? We are certainly not theist, deist, atheist or apatheist by definition. We obviously think there is 'God' who just happens to be life itself.
With respect to extremist religions and violent acts, my philosophy is this: act to promote self and react to protect self, with love and thought, but first do no harm.
Francesco Menchise (author) from Brisbane Australia on May 24, 2014:
Thank you dryeboahmensah, for reading and then taking the time for writing your comment, which I have to say that I agree with what you are saying; here I would like to add that we should use caution whatever we say in religious circles, above all we should try to make the extremist see their mistakes, so that they don't use religions to do violent deeds and we need to do that without upsetting them. Anyhow this is just another reason why I am writing these religious articles.
May God bless us all?
dryeboahmensah on May 24, 2014:
I am very happy to have stumbled upon your article, Mr. Menchise. I have been thinking about these ideas over the last one week, and I am pleased to note that your reasoning agrees very much with mine.
I strongly think that God is life, and life is God. I mean the totality of life is God. God is neither male nor female. God is not positive or negative, beneficial or harmful, good or bad, righteous or sinful, full or free of jealousy. God is! God acts and reacts!
The individual components of the universe, be it the sun, moon, human beings , ants, trees, amoebae or sodium atoms, all exist and behave as though God. It's all about 'being', 'acting', and 'reacting'. The extent of being, action and reaction is of course a function of each component's degree of sophistication in the evolutionary journey. Human beings, for instance , are capable of higher level of being, action and reaction, based on our capacity for abstract reasoning.
Does this mean God is impersonal and therefore all religions are useless? Our reasoning human minds naturally shun suffering and gravitate towards blissful existence in all aspects of our lives. Blissful existence , also referred to as heaven, is desired by all mankind, and all kinds of stories have been put forward over the generations by various cultures to expectedly generate an all-powerful supernatural being in charge of such heaven, ready to benefit those who seek him.
The way I see it, let the religions have their say as long as they give hope and purpose to some people. For those of us who see God as life itself, we have a responsibility to promote blissful existence for all and to help stop unnecessary suffering in the world. But , always bear in mind that action begets equal and opposite reaction. Do it to others and it will be done to you! That Is True Always!

Thank you so much for your comment.
Francesco Menchise (author) from Brisbane Australia on January 15, 2014:
Thank you Mahmo for posting those links, I will be reading some of them as soon as I have time. So that I would know more about your religion and therefore a better understanding of what you are talking about in your religious circles. Thank you again for taking the time to post me those.
Mahmo on January 14, 2014:
Frank , see more useful links of the Quraan :-
Mahmo on January 14, 2014:
Thank you Frank, for your comment and interest. Allah is one in our faith he is the same of Abraham and the same who guided the Jewish out of Egypt and who guide the whole creation . I do not know what you mean when you say we need modern English version of the Quraan. This holy book is found in many Islamic websites and it is the only book that never changed since revelation. To help you see these links :-
Francesco Menchise (author) from Brisbane Australia on January 11, 2014:
Thank you, Mahmo for your comment and above all for your website link, which I have started to read, it is all good stuff, but I wish is was more specific about what book of Allah it is talking about; my guess is that it is talking about the Koran. Now if that is the case, would not it be easier to post a link of the Koran for the people to read and understand your religion? By the way we need a modern English version that is easy to understand, so that the readers can make up their own minds?
For what I have read already, it seems to me that your God Allah was ones called Yahweh, since this is mentioned several times that he is the same God of Abraham and the same God that guided the Israelites out of Egypt. Now all this needs to be explained in a clear way to the public, so that they can decide what is believable to them and what is not and therefore not acceptable. Thanks again May your God bless you?
Mahmo on January 11, 2014:
As Muslims we do believe of course in God existence . In Islam religion God is called Allah. To understand who is Allah and What is the facts surrounding Him please read this website which is made only for this purpose :-

You say Atheists don't believe in God because 'we' fear he can't help us or protect us, or that we don't need it? That is a mental concept, an Agnostic or Atheistic person does not fear that god will neither help nor harm us because there is no belief, period. Perhaps, existent in definition, but in reality.. no.
Dolores Monet from East Coast, United States on May 27, 2010:
Well, the thing about God is that it does not matter if anyone can prove He exists. If you believe in God, you don't need proof.
Tricia Mason from The English Midlands on May 22, 2010:
God may exist. Plenty of people think that there is a God. Not everyone agrees on what, exactly, is meant by the term 'God'.
But I do not think that 'his' existence ~ or non-existence, for that matter ~ can be proved.
TJ Hooper from dublin Ga on May 22, 2010:
very good article!
