Under the assumption that either there is a Creator (ie God), or Evolution is true: All seven Laws (The 3 Laws of Thermal Dynamics, the 3 Laws of Newton and the Zeroth Law.) require the existence of a Creator over the premise of Evolution. In addition, philosophy speaks of a Necessary Being, a Prime Mover, the Quintessential. (Ex Nihilo Nihil Fit.)
The slaughtering of each other within religious fractions and cults. Gods don't have to annihilate humanity with floods, we'll kill each other with belief in them instead. Cannibals are good example they ate each other as do Gods when morphing into each other, as does anyone that takes holy communion. That stemmed from cult worship dressing someone up as their God, who had to act like their God, be treated like their God, then they would sacrifice them to their God, and the high ranking cult leaders would eat the body parts of the human sacrifice. Glass of red wine anyone?

Believing in God isn't build upon arguments nor does it need any . A marvelous system that is perfectly composed, restricted, balanced and controlled necessitates an ultimately perfect composer, restrictor, balancer, and controller! This is not a statement that people make from blind faith in any given religion, it is an argument that is as axiomatic and self-evident -in terms of language and reason . Our minds are designed to believe in a Creator . But to answer the question : Some of the argument (Though no need for them ) :
1 - The cosmological argument (First cause ) 2 - The teleological argument (Design in nature)
And many others such as beginning of the universe ,order in the universe , human nature , prophets and scriptures ... Etc ...
"most" convincing from a selection of near nothing. Perhaps the appeal to ignorance concerning the origin of the big bang. Gods have migrated from mountain tops to above the firmament so with current technology it seems they're left hiding before the universe existed.

I've never seen a convincing one.
A great many people ignorant of logic and philosophy seem convinced by the ontological argument though- they know it sounds ridiculous but can't place why without the background and thus might be convinced.
That His name is still spoken thousands of times daily by belief or nonbelief. When I'm dead and gone...... No one will speak my name after 10 years. God keeps His name alive and well by placing it in the heart of every human.
The most convincing argument is made by Almighty God when He interacts with your life at the spiritual level and you become born again. After that, when you can look back at who you were and who you have become since, you can't deny Him any longer.
So I guess in a nutshell my answer is; being reborn is the most powerful argument any individual can have, and this is a gift from God Himself.

Understanding God,s existence REQUIRES spiritual investigation. A man who does not believe on spiritual things will not be able to understand things of God which thing is a sad thing, there are really unfortunate people.
for believers, the existence of God is no longer a question. we believe in God because we have understanding beyond physical universe, we know that the universe is not going to exist without a creator and that creator is God.
the reason these people (atheists and non believers) do not believe in God is because their mind is only limited to physical things, they DENY the existence of SPIRITUAL reality.
If they deny the existence of spiritual realities, which can be experienced and feel etc. how much more the existence of God.
let us read,
1 Corinthians 2:14
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Are there some things that we cannot see with our eyes but that we believe exist because there are sound reasons to do so? What about the air we breathe? We may feel it when there is a breeze. We can tell that it fills our lungs, even though we do not see it. Because we see the effects, there is good reason to believe in it, isn't that so? Well, is there evidence that an invisible God really exists?
Are there sound reason for believing in God?
Psalm 104:24: "How many your works are, O Jehovah! All of them in wisdom you have made. The earth is full of your productions."
Romans 1:20: "His invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made.
Illustration: When we see a camera, a radio, or a computer, we readily acknowledge that it must have been produced by an intelligent designer. Would it be reasonable, then, to say that far more complex things - the eye, the ear, and the human brain - did not originate with an intelligent Designer?
Psalm 83:18: May people know that you alone whose name, O Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth. www.jw.org
