Dear Andrew,

Spoken from a true Athiest. I am a christian and I believe there is a God - A truint God. However, the existence of God cannot be proven or disproved. The Bible even says that we must accept by faith the fact that God exists, "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6). If God so desired, He could simply appear and prove to the whole world that He exists. But if He did that, there would be no need for faith. "Then Jesus told him, 'Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed'" (John 20:29). That does not mean, however, that there is not evidence of God's existence. The Bible declares, "The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.If you look around at creation you can see the glory of God, this is just not scientific. If you look at the way our bodies are made it is not what evolutionists proclaim.

We believe in a God based on faith, just as the evolutionist believe in evolution-by faith. My bible teaches me there is a God and I have put faith in Jesus Christ (God manifested) and what the word of God says. You as an Athiest believe in no God, that is your choice, but at the end of your life if I am right, you will face God and He will say I never knew you and you will be cast into the lake of fire. If you are right, what do I have to loose? IMy faith as I see it, when I leave this world I will spend the restof my life with Christ and all that put their faith in Him. pray that you look deeper to where your faith will lead you, Andrew.
