The Bible 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).
Depends what you believe. Some people say, without a doubt he exists. While other people say, there's no proof he exists, so he doesn't. It's all based on faith. Me personally, I believe someone has to have made all this, it can't be a coincidence. Now do I believe in the God that is depicted in the bible? One who supposedly loves unconditionally, but will send a person to hell for being Gay? Heck no. What do you believe jhonyolo?
Well if God isn't real, then there sure is a bigger problem as to how humans can invent God. If we invented God then we would necessarily have invented something from nothing. This seems humanly impossible since anything we have ever invented always comes from something we already have some knowledge of. We have never been able to show that we are able to invent from "thin air". God necessarily (at least as revealed by the bible) is from nothing and is irreducible....there is no way for us to "invent" such a "god".

God, or the idea of god, is a psychological phenomenon, not a physical one. An honest God is the Noblest Creation of Man.
Each nation has created a god, and that's why you will see that the gods has always resembled his creators. These gods have been manufactured after numberless models, and according to the most grotesque fashions. He hated and loved what they hated and loved, and he was invariably found on the side of those in power. Each god was intensely patriotic, and detested all nations but his own. All these gods demanded praise, flattery, and worship. Most of them were pleased with sacrifice, and the smell of innocent blood has ever been considered a divine perfume. All these gods have insisted upon having a vast number of priests, and the priests have always insisted upon being supported by the people, and the principal business of these priests has been to boast about their god, and to insist that he could easily vanquish all the other gods put together.
The truth is that coincidences really do exist ... I study science and I strongly believe in science .. Science gives you facts but the truth is that there is no real answer just like religions... Ur question it's smth we will never know ,the truth ,earth it's so old we have been here for freaking scary really many many years .. and that's why it's so hard to answer questions about life or "god".. Maybe us humans cannot think beyond our intelligence maybe we are not smart enough to understand the truth.. and because of these we have to trust things we have been seen with our own eyes ( that's the reason why there are so many atheist out there ..)
God is a self-evident truth. God says, "the heavens declare the glory of God", that is, they make Him known. He also invites us to "lift our eyes and look to the heavens" and ask "who created all these?" The Creator, God, by His great power. Great power, yet merciful enough to whisper in our conscience that He is there. To top it off, God came to earth and lived here and was shown to be divine by "many convincing proofs." That would be Jesus the Christ, who has other names prophesied about Him hundreds of years earlier--Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of peace. You can read about Him in the Gospel of John in the Bible.

Man created all religions and all gods. We do it over and over again. That's why so many cultures have their own religions and beliefs and rituals and gods and temples. There never have been gods. Do you believe in the Egyptian sun god Ra?All Egyptians did a long time ago. If you disputed Ra's existence, they'd cut off your head. No one believes it today. Why? Because it is stupid. And their religion got replaced.
Man replaces all gods and religions over time. These come and go; they all have a shelf life. Many people today will argue their god is the REAL god. For now they are right. Later, it will be discarded. Then we'll have a new god! It's what humans do. We get bored easily. How many people are Mormon or Scientologists? Recently developed, these two religions have some really stupid aspects. But there are people who swear by them. it is easy to make a religion because people need to follow something. Out of fear, out of cusriosity, from lack of knowledge of the universe or what happens to us when we die, people will always fill in the "I don't know's" with some imaginary concepts.
The FSM is as real as you and me. I know because I have faith and read it on a website that claims to tell the truth about the universe and in turn MUST have been divinely inspired by the real one true word of god, the flying spaghetti monster.
