I am a theist and I believe that God exists. One key reason why is because my mom has raised me to believe that there is a God since I was a baby, I have been to church multitudes of times and also have read the bible many times so naturally I am going to believe that he is real. Yes my mom “raised me in the church” but that’s not the only reason I believe in God though, I ...view middle of the document...
I mean come on that is just insane and I bet even the most devout atheist would have a real hard time debunking that. The only other reason I believe that there is an after life is basically because God said there was it’s written in the bible and for me that’s good enough. I’m glad I’m not living life thinking or believing that you will be just worm food when you die that’s just really depressing.
SECTION IV: Clarify Your Belief and Position: ( 10/10)
On the issue of creationism vs. evolution I will humbly stand with the creationism side. Why? Well because that’s what it says in the bible basically. Then God said ” Let us make mankind in our image” (Genesis 1:26). I do agree with basically everything ken ham is saying, when its come to observational science and the timeline of creation, but when it comes on the topic of the age of the earth that is one view I don’t agree with him on. When Mr. Nye asks Professor ham “how could there be billions of stars, more distant then six thousand years when the earth is only six thousand years old” or when he saying how “we have trees with more tree rings then the earth is old” and “that we have ice older then a factor of 100 older then you claim the earth is”. Stuff like that give me a real hard time believing the earth is just six thousand years old. “But don’t not forget this one thing, dear friends: a day is like a thousand years to the lord” (2 peter 3:8). Yes I do believe in creationism but except for the earth being so young.

Proof of Heaven: (Maximum 200 words)
Where do I stand on the issue of an afterlife? Well for me there is no issue because I whole-heartedly believe that the after life exists and with that believe there is a heaven and hell. Why do I choose to take this stance? Well one of the main reasons I choose to take this stance is because, I have heard about countless testimony of people Near death experience just like Dr. Eben Alexander story. He said early in the interview that his brain (cortex) was getting wrecked by the bacteria so much so that “his human consciousness” was down and shouldn’t have been aware of anything at all. It was so bad his doctors didn’t think I was possible for him to make a neurological recovery. A little later in the video he begins to talk about his experience in heaven giving details of the “butterfly” he was on and saying the colors where “beyond the rainbow”, and also when he talking about the beautiful girl he met and how her thoughts would go into his “mind”. Those are exactly the details I have heard from the other countless near death experience testimony’s I have examined in my life.

Out of the three arguments listed on the existence of God I really feel that the “Teleological Argument” makes the most sense and has the most appeal in my humble opinion. The premise of the ...
