Is there evidence for God's existence? Can it be proven scientifically? In today's episode of The Truth Seeker Project we take a look at the evidence for God's existence.
REMEMBER: A Truth Seeker will search through the evidence themselves. I can only share so much. Be sure to study the subject for yourself.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics
-The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the universe is running out of usable energy.
-Sometimes called the Law of Entropy, the Second Law of Thermodynamics also states that the universe is moving toward disorder rather than order
- that nature tends to bring things to disorder.
-Without a beginning, by now the universe would be in complete disarray with no usable energy remaining.
The Expanding Universe
-In 1929, astronomer Edwin Hubble observed that the other galaxies in the universe are moving away from our galaxy. -If the galaxies are currently moving apart, then previously they must have been closer together. The ultimate extrapolation of this idea is that all of the matter in the universe originated from a single point.
-It is important to understand that this beginning point was not a dense point of matter, like some kind of extremely compacted pellet, but was literally nothing – there was no space, no time, no matter.
The Expanding Universe
-Aristotle defined nothing as what rocks dream about. Nothing is literally no thing.
-“According to the Big Bang Theory, the whole matter of the universe began to exist at a particular time in the remote past. A proponent of such a theory, at least if he is an atheist, must believe that the matter of the universe came from nothing by nothing.” Anthony Kenny
-The universe is not expanding into empty space, but space itself is expanding – there was no space before the Big Bang. -It’s also important to understand that the universe did not emerge from existing material but from nothing – there was no matter before the Big Bang. -In fact, chronologically, there was no “before” the Big Bang because there are no “befores” without time, and there was no time until the Big Bang. -Time, space, and matter came into existence at the Big Bang.
The Expanding Universe Cosmic Background Radiation
-Good scientific theories often predict future discoveries. -Scientists predicted as early as 1948 that the universe began in a great explosion, called “The Big Bang” and that there would be remnant heat from that explosion still out there. -The remnant heat is actually cosmic background radiation and was discovered in 1965. -Quite literally the “smoking gun” of the Big Bang, this cosmic background radiation put to rest any lingering thought that the universe was eternal.
Great Galaxy Seeds
-In 1992 the theory that there should be slight variations in the temperature of the cosmic background radiation from the Big Bang was confirmed by data gather by the NASA satellite COBE. -It showed precise temperature variations in radiation, allowing just enough matter to congregate to form galaxies, but not so much as to cause the universe to collapse back in on itself. -The ripples in radiation show that the beginning of the universe was extremely precise—accurate to one part in 100,000. -Had it been even slightly different, galaxies would not have formed, leaving no place for life to have begun. -Therefore, the Big Bang was not a chaotic, random explosion but seems to have been a purposeful, controlled event.
Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity
-In 1916, Albert Einstein developed the theory of General Relativity. The theory of General Relativity demands an absolute beginning for time, space, and matter and proves that all three are interdependent— you can’t have one without the others.
-The SURGE evidence shows that space, time and matter came into existence together. In other words, the universe exploded into being out of nothing. -Scientists call this the Big Bang, and theologians call creation out of nothing ex nihilo.
