Yes, he (she or it) is real...and No, the man with the beard who lives in the sky and judges people and either sends them to heaven or hell is not...this is a god made up by humans... The real one is everywhere, not just in the sky. And being everywhere he is also in you. In fact, he is you...and everyone and thing..the spirit soul who is the real you is also the real god..a small part of him, but nonetheless god..he is in every living and nonliving thing...even a stone has a rudimentary intelligence. Psychics might be able to say where this stone came from, what happened to it etc....Even the police sometimes work with psychics for the reason that they can pick up on this information stored in an object. The only way they can do this is due to the fact that it has a type of memory...it can store information....It`s molecules are moving. Maybe slowly, but moving....atoms are moving...poping in and out of existence and are surrounded by a vacuum....material things, living things, everything everywhere and anywhere are saturated with god. But No, the other god most people worship is a man made ego-based god that is non-existent.
Start here http://web.mnstate.edu/gracyk/courses/web%20publishing/aquinasFiveWays_ArgumentAnalysis.htm And here http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teleological_argument#_ Just remember these are starting points. As you study you will find arguments, counter arguments, and counter arguments for the counter arguments. Ultimately, there is an element of faith. But faith is not a bad thing, nor is it limited to religion. Faith encompasses all aspects of human life. Even in science we do not accept absolutes. So, it is normal to get discouraged during our studies, and question ourselves. It is at these times we must remember all of our findings, and how the Lord has blessed us with our own miracles in our lives. I recommend speaking with a religious leader you trust, especially if he/she is a theologian. God bless and happy studying. :)
It does not come down to opinion, Obviously He's real. Look around you, ya think the big bang set constellations in their place , or the birth of a child. Or the exact position of the Sun and if it waivers just a few feet we freeze or burn up? Absolutely He's real, and the most awesome part is, Even as perfect and as Beautiful He is, He loves us.
