There is No God?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?

“The fool has said, there is no God…” Ps. 2:1
Why would any intelligent person argue that there is no God? Think about it:
- The universe. Could you believe that billions of years ago something in the skies came into being with a big bang? The universe suddenly existed. It continues to expand. The fact that it “stays together” and is totally predictable is just by chance. The vastness of the universe cannot even be grasped by the human mind. It is endless. Some people say it is still expanding. Is it, or do we not have the technology to reach “the end”?
- Humankind. Is it plausible that untold ions ago some slime began to take shape and became life? As it was necessary for existence, it developed a heart, lungs, a brain, eyes and ears, a circulation system, arms and legs, digestive and elimination systems, etc. That was just one sex. The other more sex or less did the same thing and they discovered that they were different and could reproduce. Even if that could possibly be true, who made the slime?
- The earth. Can logic demonstrate that over ages of time, this once primitive, uninhabitable “place” somehow developed an atmosphere, water (both fresh and salt), mountains and valleys, oceans, lakes and rivers, plant, animal and fish life, a variety of soil and rock types, etc.?
- Precision of the earth. Is it sheer coincidence that everything about the functioning of the earth is constant? Minutes, hours, days, months, years, seasons, tides, etc. and have been unchanged since we became intelligent enough to track it?
- All people are born good people. What one logical bit of evidence is there to believe that? Clearly, babies have tempers, want their own way and do not need to be taught to be sneaky, to fight, or to be stubborn. They do not learn to be bad from their observations: parents, surroundings, culture, lack of opportunity. These things are not even observed or comprehended until after the child has already shown itself to be “bad.”
The Bible begins with the words, “In the beginning God…” Try to wrap your thoughts around this, if God created “in the beginning”, He had to be before the beginning! And He began everything.
John 1:13 says, “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.”
Job makes some some very perceptive remarks in 26: 7-14, “He (God) spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing. He wraps up the waters in his clouds, yet the clouds do not burst under their weight. He covers the face of the full moon, spreading his clouds over it. He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness. The pillars of the heavens quake, aghast at his rebuke. By his power he churned up the sea; by his wisdom he cut Rahab to pieces. By his breath the skies became fair; his hand pierced the gliding serpent. And these are but the outer fringe of his works…;”
The writer of Psalm 104 sings of the Lord’s many works of art in nature (v. 24). He regards “the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number” (v. 25) and rejoices in God for providing constant and complete care for His masterpieces (vv. 27-31). Considering the majesty of the God-given life around him, the psalmist bursts with worshipful gratitude: “I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live” (v. 33).
A person may want to believe there is no God; a person may reject God; a person may be very angry with God. But to say there is no God merely shows a depraved mind. One day, some day, “every knee shall bow to me (Jesus), and every tongue shall confess to God” (Rom.14:11).
