The existence of God cannot be proved or disproved. 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...

The answer to the question does God exist and is there real world evidence, physical evidence you stand on or grab can be answered with just two examples!

1.        Isaiah 46:10  
 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.

Statement of knowing the End from the BEGINNING is a clue this message
originated from outside of what we call time, as stated in Isaiah 57:15.
The creator of the message is someone who is outside the physical constraints of time itself. And He uses that very attribute to authenticate His Word.
Logically we should be able to see historical facts that were written long before they came to past, in the real physical world's historical record.

2.
Consider just the prophecies of the nation of Israel and her people for a moment.
No nation in world history has lost their home land and returned to it.
Israel has done this twice as prophesied.
Israel 1948  "can a nation be born in a day"  prophesied.

The number of Jewish Noble prize winners for hard science when compared with their world population share is incredibly high, why is this so??

Refer to early message part:  Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.

All of creation points to the creator explore, in my humble way you now have two...the message was sent, what you do with it is your choice...warrior on

The Bible itself is irrefutable proof of God's existence. It's impossible for so many ordinary men to write so many prophesies that have been fulfilled, unless they received divine inspiration. Man is flawed, the Bible is flawless. Also God protected His Word so that thousands of years later the Bible is the most widely distributed and read book ever.

Genesis 1:1 states that in the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. It does not say in the beginning man made it. John 1:1 says, "In the beginning was the word, and the word was with GOD, and the word was GOD." If we look at all the things that happen in this world that you know you have no control over, we can't make these things happen, nor can we stop them from happening. Therefore, we know that there is a greater power.

I see that God is real in the things around us, nature, music, art, family, relationships, in the order of things, the pure yet sin-adulterated laws of everything.

In checking out the effects of different thoughts on water, as it's freezing and then thawing and examining the resulting shapes, anything that speaks or focuses on God, on beauty, on love, joy, peace, beautiful music like hymns, Mozart, Bach, etc... The shapes are lovely, in some cases quite exquisite, and quite symmetrical. When the thoughts are focused on evil things like Hitler, Satan, heavy metal music, death, the resulting shapes are indistinguishable, misshapen, a jumble, orderless. 

For me, that is one proof that the order that we ascribe to God and His creation is true.

Another way is how indestructible His Word is. It has lasted for as long as mankind has been alive, even through wars, persecution, and attacks by other "faiths". 

Other faiths do not provide any meaningful threat to each other, but the message of God and the Bible is a threat to everything and everyone who is a non-believer. If it wasn't so, would there be the same kind of persecution happening that has been going on for millenia? 

There are usually two sides to an issue, but when a third side comes into the picture and threatens both sides so that both the original sides decide to work together to try to defeat the new message, then the truth must be in the new message rather than in either of the original sides of the issue.

When the question arose among the Jewish leadership as to what to do about the burgeoning number of believers, one very astute gentleman said that if it was of man, it would be gone soon enough; however, if it was from God, then they would end up fighting God instead of fighting with Him.

Traditionally, it has been said that you cannot prove or disprove the existence of God. However, within the last 30 years that argument is no longer valid, in my opinion. You can now prove the existence of God logically.

Premise 1: Every code language we know of has an independent designer.
Premise 2: Every known independent code designer is intelligent.
Premise 3: DNA is a code language.
Therefore: DNA has an independent intelligent designer who we call God.

The logic of this argument cannot be disputed rationally. Nevertheless, if that were not enough proof, I would like to offer additional evidence regarding Personal Consciousness that may evolve into additional proof for God’s existence. 

The question of human consciousness has always been a mystery. Because of experiences with natural phenomenon involving dreams or visions along with altered states of consciousness due to drugs or the like, humanity has always believed in the existence of the supernatural. These have been enhanced by near-death experiences which have had life changing effects on those involved. In fact, there are those who claim that the Apostle Paul’s commitment and zeal may have been influenced by his own near-death experience. This is recorded at 2 Corinthians 12:1-5 and is believed to have been the results of when Paul was stoned, dragged out of the city and left for dead at Lystra. (Acts 14:19-20)

The question to answer is, how can the “mind” arise due to physical chemistry alone. The mind is unpredictable which is not a property generally associated with chemistry. No study of the mind’s free-will operation has revealed an orderly explanation of how it works on the conscious level. However, there is a growing body of evidence being discovered that may reveal a tangible link between our mysterious mind and physical body.

This theory is called “Quantum Consciousness” (QC) and has been around for decades. Up until recently, it has never gained much traction in the scientific community but that is changing. In the March 2018 issue of Discover Magazine, there is an interesting article entitled “Down the Quantum Rabbit Hole.” It points out that the strongest argument against QC has been the biological environment of living tissue was believed to be unable to support quantum activity. However, that is changing. More experimenters are seeing a relationship between biological and quantum processes.

What does that all mean with respects to God’s existence? Though there is still much research needed to make any definitive statements regarding a link between the quantum world and the human body, it is interesting to speculate regarding what such a connection would imply.

First, it would explain why an emotion produced by our brain can motivate us to complete an action. This is not true of any other electronic device such as a computer. Because computers must obey physical laws exactly, their actions are predictable meaning that there is no basis to argue that a computer has any way of producing unpredictable emotions. So, our brains are not computers in the physical sense because they possess something else that is not measurable. It is that “something else” that we call free will consciousness. If, however, our brain can receive signals from the unpredictable quantum world, than free will emotions can be explained according to some speculators.

That’s the exciting part. The accepted view is that the body generates consciousness and when the body dies, our consciousness stops forever. However, if the brain receives consciousness like a radio receives transmission waves, then when the body dies, consciousness still remains elsewhere. The Apostle Paul likened this bodiless condition to being “naked”. (2 Corinthians 5:2-4) 

Though we have proven God exists logically, in the near future we may scientifically prove how and why we can have a conservation with Him directly by prayer through our quantum-consciousness.

Throughout the years scholars have never been able to disprove anything in the Bible. The Bible is the word of GOD and from GOD. Prophesies written in the Bible have come to pass so many years after being written. The diciples themselves tell the same story of Jesus, His birth, death and resurrection. That alone should be enough to disprove GOD does not exist.

Let's look at this from a human point of view. Jesus died a horrible death. All the apostles except John, died a horrible death. Rome murdered 100 of thousands in ways we can't imagine. They all died for Jesus Name sake.

Men will lay down their lives for many reasons, but a lie is not one of them. Those who doubt should think about this.

In answer to your question, Yes! God does exist. Even though we can't see him, he sees us, he dwells in our Christian lives day by day, he know our hearts and minds, plus, he watches us, so that we don't get caught up in the devil's (Satan's) evil schemes, tricks, and traps, as well as falsehood.

Jesus did not come to earth to heal people. He came to 1) die for our sins 2) turn our faces to God. Jesus healed and resurrected people to prove that he is the son of God.

So to know that there is a God, google miracle healings. My recommendation is to watch enough miracle healings that you will be convinced that God is at work. 

Best ones are from Africa, where you know that they are not pulling a fast one over you.

There are many in the US, but the one I like is from MelBond.com: a humble American Indian - who sees in the spiritual world - and heals. He does his best to share his spiritual gifts on his website.

Also, know that there is a heaven and a hell. If you are not convinced there is a hell, google NDE hell. Hell is so horrific, you do not want to find out what is sin.

Just as in Pilgrim's Progress (by John Bunyan, an excellent, must read book, second only to the bible), Christian stays away from the edge, I also recommend that you stay away from the edge. 

I confess, I do not know what sin is. I suggest that you do not find out what sin is.

I am praying that you all stay away from the edge.

God Bless,
Hoping (desiring) to be a slave of God.

The complexity of the human body and the perfect functionality of all the different parts is enough proof of the existence of a higher intelligence.
