This thread is going to be half a rant, and half my own ideas thrown out there. Feel free to comment or add, oh, and don't take it personally. I think the biggest reason people tend to toss away the idea of the existence of God is because if they did believe in his existence then it would mean having some obligation towards him. So people will throw in all they've learned about the lack of evidence and proof of God so they won't have to acknowledge him and worship him. People tend to merge religion with God - saying it is one and the same, but it's not. Religion is for man who wishes to worship God. So let's put religion aside and focus on the creator. All you need to do, is acknowledge his existence, nothing more, nothing less. You will not be obligated to do anything else apart from knowing that he exists. After that, you probably now want to know where the evidence is of God's existence. I will refer to him as the creator and not god to put any religious conotation aside (because this is not about religion). When you come across a garden that has straight rows of different types of flowers (row one has type one flowers, row two has another type of flower, and so on) - do you dispute for a second that a gardener was behind the design of the garden? The chances of these straight rows of different types of flowers be a coincidence is so slim, that I have no doubt in my mind that anyone else will come up with a better theory than the gardener having designed the garden. The garden is the evidence to there being a gardener. When you look closely at the working of the world - the continuous cycle of seasons, night/day, ecological balance etc, etc. - it is too perfect, too systematic for it to be created via coincidence. The world is the evidence to there being a creator.
