What is God? Or better yet, who is God? The Merriam-webster online dictionary defines God as “The Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped (as in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism) as creator and ruler of the universe.”
How do we know that God is real?
To answer this question, you might want to take an objective look at all the religious faiths and their books. However, when you look at these books, you find a glaring truth — the reality of God rests on the belief systems and experiences of the people within the pages. Did these people even exist? Or are they figments of a human author?
Concerning that, many people are alive that can testify of the realness of God. They have evidence in the form of supernatural healing and provision — situations that are so far gone that only a “god” could fix it!
On the flip side, some have empirical evidence that links creation, fortune, and misfortune to a series of proven theories. These theories have stood the test of time and have not been refuted despite the many claims against them.
As such, atheists hold firmly to the fact that God does not exist and that He is a figment of one’s imagination or a result of a mental disorder.
But what if both faith and atheism were missing fundamental aspects of proving the existence of God? Would you care to discover them?
The following perspectives have been explored by author Hassan Bfly and are very interesting to consider.
- You don’t have to see it or experience it for it to be real
Bfly posits that the existence of a thing is not based on your ability to see or experience it but on whether or not it is relevant mathematically. Once something can be mathematically traced to a source, that means it must have a creator. And if it can’t be traced mathematically, then it doesn’t.
- The number zero has greater value than we realize
Bfly believes that the number zero is the “God number”. By itself, it has no value but when placed before or after other numerals in the numerical system, it can add value or take value away. As such he makes the statement that “God is to reality what zero is to Math”.
- The existence of God is not a mystery, it can be logically determined
It does not take rocket science to deduct whether God is real or not. There is only one concept that makes common sense- everything comes from something, nothing exists on its own. Using that concept, you can make your deductions to determine for yourself whether God exists or not.
Hassan Bfly’s concepts are different and he discusses more of it in his new book. If this is something you want to spend some time pondering on, the book might be a good place to start!
