In Reply to: Logical Proof of the Existence of God posted by Nick Stone on October 10, 2002 at 00:25:27:
The proposition that someone wrote an article which in some way "proves the existence of God" is a philosophical and theosophical absurdity. One might hypothesize that certain events in the universe are of such an inexplicable magnitude and comlexity - or that the statistical probability of life, for example, is zero - then there must be a God, or some "force" one might call God, necessitating a reconciliation of the two. However, God is unknowable, undiscoverable and, without doubt, unproveable. No logic can "prove God's existence". No evidence, however extraordinary, can prove God's existence. Believing in Baha'u'llah is an act of faith, not of logic, an answer to our need for spiritual enlightenment and of a higher order of understanding and morality. The truth of Baha leads to God, it is not proof of anything, but if you need proof, or seek proof, you have a serious problem with Faith. Anyone who waits for proof of God is lost.
With affection and empathy,
