Most people find they need to answer for themselves and in discussions with others the question: “Does God Exist?” To help us answer this important question, the first part of this engaging session presents compelling scientific evidence of God’s existence from cosmology and physics. Contrary to the usual myth of a conflict between science and faith, attendees are excited to learn “the rest of the story” about the scientific evidence of God’s existence, mostly presented on video by scientists themselves. This evidence, which God left for science to discover, reveals a cosmos brought into being by a Creator beyond space and time and a universe that is surprisingly finely tuned to be “just right” for life.

The second part of this multimedia presentation focuses on evidence of God’s existence from within human nature, including our consciousness and conscience. Since our free will and desire for perfect knowledge, perfect justice, and perfect love are not necessary for survival, where do they come from and why do we have them? This part also explores the persuasive case made by C.S. Lewis on how our conscience, which he calls the “moral law written on our hearts,” points to God’s existence.

In short, this presentation provides an overview of amazing scientific evidence and key insights drawn from human nature demonstrating God’s existence. This objective evidence of God’s existence helps dispel doubts and strengthen faith, as well as provides persuasive reasons for belief that are valuable for sharing with family and friends who have questions about the existence of God.

Note: When this presentation is done separately (not part of the Faith and the Big Questions series of talks), it is normally entitled Proclaiming the Reality of God: Scientific and Human Evidence of God’s Existence. For youth, it is recommended that the two parts of this session be done on two different dates, as well as to include the personal reflection and small group discussion handouts available from CAINA.
