Belief in God is ultimately a personal and subjective matter, and what constitutes the "most perfect and strongest arguments" can vary greatly from person to person.

Belief in God is a universal belief, and what constitutes the “most perfect and strongest arguments” can vary greatly from person to person. However, here are the five reasons why I believe in God:

  1. The Cosmological Argument: This argument suggests that everything in the universe has a cause and that this chain of causation must ultimately be rooted in a First Cause, which is God.

  2. The Teleological Argument: This argument posits that the complexity and order of the universe suggest a purposeful design, which points to the existence of an intelligent Creator.

  3. The Moral Argument: This argument suggests that the existence of objective moral values and duties in the world implies the existence of a moral lawgiver, which is God.

  4. The Ontological Argument: This argument contends that the concept of God as a perfect being necessarily entails His existence since existence is a necessary attribute of perfection.

  5. I do exist, so I believe in God.

The Cosmological Argument of Belief in God:

The Cosmological Argument is one of the oldest and most widely discussed arguments for the existence of God. It is based on the idea that everything that exists in the universe has a cause and that this chain of causation must ultimately be rooted in a First Cause, which is God.

The argument can be broken down into a few key steps:

  1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause.

  2. The universe began to exist.

  3. Therefore, the universe has a cause.

  4. The cause of the universe must be an uncaused, eternal, and necessary being.

  5. This uncaused, eternal, and necessary being is what we call God.

Let’s look at each of these steps in more detail:

  1. Everything that begins to exist has a cause.

This is a principle that is widely accepted in science and philosophy. It means that if something comes into existence, there must be a cause or explanation for why it exists. This is sometimes referred to as the principle of causality.

  1. The universe began to exist.

There is a significant amount of scientific evidence that suggests the universe had a beginning, such as the Big Bang theory. If the universe had a beginning, then it must have had a cause.

  1. Therefore, the universe has a cause.

If everything that begins to exist has a cause, and the universe begins to exist, then it logically follows that the universe must have a cause.

  1. The cause of the universe must be an uncaused, eternal, and necessary being.

This is where the argument starts to get more controversial. The idea is that the cause of the universe must be something that is itself uncaused, eternal, and necessary. The argument goes that if the cause of the universe had a cause, then that cause would need a cause, and so on, creating an infinite regress. Therefore, the cause of the universe must be uncaused, eternal, and necessary.

  1. This uncaused, eternal, and necessary being is what we call God.

Finally, the argument concludes that this uncaused, eternal, and necessary being is what we call God. This being is believed to be the First Cause or the ultimate explanation for why the universe exists.

The Teleological Argument of Belief in God:

The Teleological Argument, also known as the Argument from Design, is an argument for the existence of God based on the apparent design or purposeful arrangement of the natural world.

The argument can be broken down into a few key steps:

  1. The natural world exhibits evidence of design and purpose.

  2. The only plausible explanation for this design is the existence of an intelligent Designer.

  3. Therefore, God exists.

Let’s look at each of these steps in more detail:

  1. The natural world exhibits evidence of design and purpose.

The natural world is filled with examples of complex, intricate, and purposeful arrangements, from the way living organisms are adapted to their environments, to the intricate balance of the ecosystems, to the laws that govern the universe. These examples suggest that the natural world was designed or arranged for a specific purpose.

  1. The only plausible explanation for this design is the existence of an intelligent Designer.

The argument suggests that the complexity and purposeful arrangement of the natural world cannot be explained by chance or natural processes alone, but rather require an intelligent Designer. The Designer is believed to have created the natural world with a specific purpose in mind.

  1. Therefore, God exists.

The argument concludes that the Designer of the natural world is what we call God.

The Moral Argument of Belief in God:

The Moral Argument is an argument for the existence of God based on the existence of objective moral values and duties in the world.

The argument can be broken down into a few key steps:

  1. If God does not exist, objective moral values and duties do not exist.

  2. Objective moral values and duties do exist.

  3. Therefore, God exists.

Let’s look at each of these steps in more detail:

  1. If God does not exist, objective moral values and duties do not exist.

The argument suggests that if there is no God, then there is no objective basis for moral values and duties. Without God, moral values and duties are simply a matter of individual preference or cultural norms, and there is no way to say that any particular moral code is objectively better or more valid than any other.

  1. Objective moral values and duties do exist.

The argument contends that there are moral values and duties that are objective, or independent of individual or cultural opinions. For example, most people would agree that it is objectively wrong to murder an innocent person, regardless of cultural norms or personal preferences.

  1. Therefore, God exists.

The argument concludes that the existence of objective moral values and duties requires the existence of God. God is believed to be the foundation and source of these objective moral values and duties, providing a basis for their existence.

The Ontological Argument of Belief in God:

The Ontological Argument is a philosophical argument for the existence of God that is based on the concept of existence itself.

The argument can be broken down into a few key steps:

  1. God is defined as the most perfect being that can be conceived.

  2. The most perfect being that can be conceived must exist in reality, not just in the mind.

  3. Therefore, God must exist in reality.

Let’s look at each of these steps in more detail:

  1. God is defined as the most perfect being that can be conceived.

The Ontological Argument starts with the definition of God as the most perfect being that can be conceived. This definition includes qualities such as omnipotence, omniscience, and perfect goodness.

  1. The most perfect being that can be conceived must exist in reality, not just in the mind.

The argument suggests that a being that exists, in reality, is greater than a being that exists only in the mind. Therefore, if we conceive of God as the most perfect being, then he must exist in reality, not just in the mind.

  1. Therefore, God must exist in reality. In other words, God is a Necessary Being.

The conclusion of the argument is that the existence of God is necessary based on the definition of God as the most perfect being that can be conceived.

I do exist, so I believe in God.

The argument that we cannot live without God is a subjective argument and is therefore not considered a strong argument for the existence of God by many people. While, I feel with all my senses, in every microsecond, that I could not exist if there is no God.

Though it seems to be an extension of the Cosmological Argument, actually, it is more than an argument. It’s not an argument, it’s a feeling that every human being with normal sense and mind feels since the opening of eyes on this earth.

Generally, atheists reply to this argument by quoting the same principle of causation.

Could I really exist by chance?

DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is the molecule that carries all the information that exists in my body. The probability of DNA emerging by chance alone is extremely low. The reason for this is that DNA is a complex molecule with a specific sequence of nucleotides that carries genetic information. The probability of this sequence forming randomly is very small.

To understand why this is the case, consider the number of possible combinations of nucleotides in a DNA sequence. There are four different nucleotides that can be used: adenine (A), cytosine (C), guanine (G), and thymine (T). If we assume that a DNA sequence has 100 nucleotides, there are 4^100 (or about 1.6 x 10^60) possible combinations. This is an astronomically large number, and the probability of a specific sequence forming by chance is therefore extremely low.

Moreover, the formation of DNA also requires the presence of other molecules, such as ribose and phosphate, which must be present in the correct amounts and ratios. The formation of these molecules also requires specific chemical conditions that are unlikely to occur by chance.

Therefore, while it is theoretically possible for DNA to emerge by chance, the probability of this happening is so low as to be effectively zero. This is why many scientists believe that the emergence of life on Earth required the intervention of some kind of external cause, such as a creator or natural process that guided the formation of DNA and other necessary molecules.

The number 4^100 is astronomically large, meaning it is an extremely large number on the scale of the universe. To give you some perspective, the estimated number of atoms in the observable universe is about 10^80, which is about 20 orders of magnitude smaller than 4^100.

In fact, 4^100 is such a large number that it is difficult to comprehend. To illustrate this, imagine if every atom in the observable universe were a computer, and each computer was capable of generating one possible DNA sequence per second. Even if we started this process at the beginning of the universe, it is estimated that it would take many times the age of the universe for all the computers to generate every possible DNA sequence of 100 nucleotides.

This is why the probability of a specific DNA sequence forming by chance alone is considered to be extremely low, and why many scientists believe that the emergence of life on Earth required some kind of external cause, such as the intervention of a creator or natural process that guided the formation of DNA and other necessary molecules.

Where Did Atoms Come From?

Atoms are the building blocks of my body. Where did atoms come from?

They say, from the Big Bang or a similar explanation of the existence of the universe.

OK, What is the possibility of the Big Bang by chance mathematically?

It’s important to understand that the Big Bang is not a chance event in the same way that flipping a coin or rolling a dice is a chance event. The Big Bang is a scientific theory that describes the origins of the universe and the evolution of its structure over time.

The theory of the Big Bang suggests that the universe began as an infinitely small, dense, and hot singularity that expanded rapidly in a massive explosion about 13.8 billion years ago. This expansion led to the formation of the universe as we know it today.

The Big Bang theory is supported by a wide range of observational evidence, including cosmic microwave background radiation, the observed distribution of galaxies, and the abundance of light elements in the universe. Therefore, the probability of the Big Bang occurring by chance is not a meaningful or relevant question from a scientific perspective.

What is the possibility of emerging quarks by chance?

Quarks are fundamental particles that are believed to be the building blocks of protons and neutrons, which are in turn the building blocks of atomic nuclei. The probability of quarks emerging by chance alone is not a meaningful question from a scientific perspective, as quarks are believed to be fundamental particles that cannot be broken down into smaller components.

According to the Standard Model of particle physics, there are six types of quarks: up, down, charm, strange, top, and bottom. Quarks are always found in combinations of two or three, bound together by the strong nuclear force, which is one of the four fundamental forces of nature. This means that quarks cannot exist in isolation, and their properties and behavior are governed by the laws of physics that describe the behavior of subatomic particles.

What is the possibility of emerging gluons by chance?

It is not accurate to think of quarks or gluons as emerging by chance. According to the current scientific understanding, quarks and gluons are fundamental particles that make up the building blocks of matter, and their properties and interactions are governed by the laws of physics.

In the Standard Model of particle physics, gluons are the force carriers that mediate the strong nuclear force, which binds quarks together to form protons and neutrons. The strong force is one of the four fundamental forces of nature, along with the weak nuclear force, the electromagnetic force, and the gravitational force.

The strong nuclear force is unique in that it becomes stronger as particles move closer together, which allows quarks to be bound together in a way that other particles cannot. The strong force is mediated by gluons, which are themselves fundamental particles.

What if gluons did not exist?

If gluons did not exist, the strong nuclear force would not be able to exist in its current form. The strong nuclear force is responsible for binding quarks together to form protons and neutrons and for binding protons and neutrons together in atomic nuclei.

Without the strong nuclear force, the universe as we know it would not be able to exist, since the stable elements that make up matter would not be able to form. Hydrogen, the simplest and most abundant element in the universe, would be the only element that could exist in this scenario since it consists of a single proton and electron.

Furthermore, the absence of a strong nuclear force would have profound implications for the evolution of the universe. Stars would not be able to form, since they require the nuclear fusion of hydrogen and other elements to generate the energy that powers their luminosity. This would mean that the universe would be a very different place, without the stars and galaxies that we observe today.

While, the coexistence of gluons and quarks is necessary to form protons and neutrons, which are the building blocks of atomic nuclei. The strong nuclear force, which is mediated by gluons, is responsible for binding quarks together to form protons and neutrons.


Qur’anic Arguments for the Belief in God

The Qur’an presents several arguments for the existence of God, many of which are similar to arguments presented in other religious and philosophical traditions. Here are some key arguments from the Qur’an:

  1. The argument from creation: The Qur’an points to the complexity and order of the natural world as evidence of God’s existence. Several verses, describe the universe as a finely tuned system that was created by God. For example, in Surah Al-Anbiya, Verse 30, it says: “Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the earth were closed up, so We opened them, and We made of water everything living? Will they not then believe?”

  2. The argument from design: Similar to the teleological argument in Western philosophy, the Qur’an points to the intricate design and purposeful arrangement of natural phenomena as evidence of God’s existence. In Surah Al-Mulk, Verse 3, it says: “He who created the seven heavens one above another; you see no fault in the creation of the Beneficent Allah; then look again, can you see any disorder?”

  3. The argument from consciousness: The Qur’an argues that human consciousness and self-awareness are evidence of God’s existence. In Surah Al-Isra, Verse 70, it says: “And We have certainly honored the children of Adam and carried them on the land and sea and provided for them of the good things and preferred them over much of what We have created, with [definite] preference.”

  4. The moral argument: The Qur’an argues that the existence of objective moral values and duties points to God’s existence. In Surah Al-An’am, Verse 151, it says: “Say: Come, I will recite unto you that which your Lord has made a sacred duty for you: that you ascribe nothing as partner unto Him and that you do good to parents, and that you show kindness to relatives, and that you do not squander your wealth in vain things.”

Overall, the Qur’an presents a holistic view of the world that emphasizes the interrelatedness of all things and the importance of acknowledging God as the creator and sustainer of the universe.
