1. How Do We Know A ‘God’ Exists?

What would you think if someone told you that…

His ‘theory’ of how cars are made is like this:1. lightbulb man

A scrap yard in the south of a town blows up and all the metal pieces fly into the air and fall back down into one place forming a brand new Lamborghini … with no left over parts … and the motor running?

Or what if his theory for how a chair is made is:

An explosion occurs in a forest and the trees go flying into the air and suddenly combine together to make a beautiful chair … and then it lands in a furniture showroom complete with a matching table.

He further explains that:

1. computer with earth

An earthquake in California’s ‘Silicon Valley’ causes the computer chips, circuit boards and various other parts to fall out of their boxes and shelves onto the floor and come together to form the most advanced technical computers on the earth?

1. medicine bottle 2Or what if he claims on his ‘Medicine Theory’ that…

A gas leak in a pharmacy warehouse results in an explosion and all the chemicals smash into each other in exactly the correct amounts to produce a miracle drug, which cures everything from cancer to heart and liver disease?

Wait … there’s more to this one:

It’s an all in one formula, packaged in bottles with labels and ready to sell, with no mess left on the floor?

Now after all this exploding and excitement, this person tells you of a great place where you can relax and eat. It’s his favourite place and he calls it…

“Burger Blast!”

He says:

“You go in and sit down and a ‘blast’ from the kitchen occurs and immediately a burger lands in front of you with all the trimmings… just the way you like it. And it’s complete with fries, a drink and even your favourite dessert?”


No one works at “Burger Blast!”

It just runs on its own, automatically cleans itself and as you leave, it scans your billfold for a valid credit card and charges your bank account for what you have eaten! 

Now… the question is: “Are you really going to accept any of this as a ‘fact’?”

Of course not!

A new car is not made from flying junk, chairs don’t fall from exploding trees, earthquakes don’t produce computers and unfortunately blasting burgers don’t rain on us from above!

So how comes we don’t challenge a theory of something coming from nothing and colliding in the cosmos to make the universe?

Is it because of its tremendous magnitude? Or is it because we understand so little about it, that we are willing to accept a theory telling us that it came from ‘nothingness’?

Or is it really a case of some gases colliding and then. . . ‘Poof!’ ‘Magic!’ ‘Abracadabra!’ We have an instant Universe?

Could it really happen like this? Of course not.

Let’s look ourselves as an example:

  • An adult body is made of approximately 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms, which are formed together to create the perfect human body – we can walk, talk, eat, sleep, breathe etc; with ease.1 18. human body
  • This adult is estimated to have 60,000 miles of blood vessels. To put that into perspective, the distance around the earth is approximately 25,000 miles. If our blood vessels were laid end to end, they could travel more than twice around the earth.
  • Yet each drop of blood inside this vessel contains about 10,000 white blood cells and 250,000 platelets.
  • Our eye can distinguish around 10 million different colours.
  • We have more bacteria in our mouth than there are people in the world.
  • Every day, our heart creates enough energy to drive a truck for 20 miles (32 km).
  • If uncoiled, the DNA in all the cells within our body could stretch to 10 billion miles – that’s from here to the planet Pluto and back.

There are so many amazing facts like this relating to ourselves and the world we live in.

Could all of these have simply appeared and formed by themselves over time?

Some still say… yes. But let’s think about this:

1. baby in womb

A baby needs a number of very complex interdependent systems to survive and live. These systems include the nervous, digestive, excretory, circulatory, skeletal, muscular and immune system; and for a baby to survive and live, each system requires all the other systems to be functioning.

Hence, all these systems must be in operation at the same time and could not have evolved slowly over millions of years.

So what are the chances of an intricate male reproductive system coming about by time, chance and random mutation? It would need to be fully functional along the entire evolutionary timeline, so reproduction could continue.

And remember; this highly unlikely progression would be pointless unless the female reproductive system had randomly evolved in perfect sync to compliment the developing male system, so both worked in harmony over the millions of years of evolutionary refinement!

This logic applies to all the other species on earth as well.

There is no evidence anywhere of the evolution of such systems.

More than that, not even any hypothetical process can be thought of to explain how something like the brain and the digestive system could have evolved bit by bit over time!

How do we know a God exists and how did everything appear?

3D Character and Thinking , He is standing with question mark

The existence of such an intricate and carefully formed creation testifies to the existence of a Creator. Islam explains how everything was formed by calling people to recognise its Sole Creator – God.

In Islam, all the prophets including Abraham, Moses, David, Soloman, Jesus, John (the Baptist) and Muhammad (PBUT); all worshipped this same God alone.

God was always there from the beginning and will always be there. He is the Creator and Sustainer of everything around us, including us.

“Allah (God)…none has the right to be worshipped except Him alone, the Creator of all things.”

(Quran 6:102).
