In the past years, I have become more and more of a sceptic and for this reason, I no longer fully subscribe the contents of this page.
For those who know God, no proof is necessary;|
For those who reject God, no proof is enough.
Does God exist?
Some say it is impossible to prove God's existence.
But if that is true, how do they know this?
Are there any proofs that prove it is impossible to prove God's existence.
Our first question should be: What do we mean if we say `God' (or `god').
For some `God' is an idea (invented by man), for others a force and for
some a Being.
People place it inside themselves, consider it equal with the known
universe or say He (or She) exist independent and out-side the universe.
The different ideas about God are related to ones world view.
All the possible world-views can be divided into the following:
Some also add Agnosticism as a world-view,
but strictly speaking it is not a particular world view, but stating that
one does not (or cannot) know what is the correct world-view.
Of course there are also views that state it is not important to know what
is the right world view.
There is no God in or beyond the world.
God is identical with the world.
God is in all the world in the sense that God is to the world
as the the mind is to the body.
God is beyond the world, but not actively supporting it.
The world was once created, but now runs on its own.
God is both beyond and within the world, both Creator as active Sustainer
of the world.
Each world view also gives an answer to the questions:
- Where are we coming from?
- Where are we going to?
- What happens if we die?
- Why is there suffering?
- What is the meaning of life?
- What is the purpose of life?
The history of mankind will probably show that no people
has ever risen above its religion, and man's spiritual
history will positively demonstrate that no religion has ever
been greater than its idea of God.

What do I mean with `God'?
Before you can start giving any arguments or proofs about some
statement, one should first define the statement as clear as possible.
So here comes a first definition of God
- God is an uncreated, self-existed Being, without cause.
- God is eternal, without limits, almighty and omniscience.
