To Believe or Not to Believe? (in G-d) That is the Question.

megillaTo Arrive at belief in Judaism, one must answer three questions –

1. Does it make more logical sense to believe that G-d Exists or that He does not?

2. Did He give a divine law for people to follow?

3. Which law is it?

Let’s just deal with the first question for now.

Judaism’s Belief in God explains that there is One G-d, that is Omnipotent (all-powerful) and Omniscient (all-knowing), who has no physical or spiritual form who directs and creates the world every moment.

Those who do not believe say that the world was always here or there was a an explosion (the big- bang) and in the 15 billion years of the world, randomness produced order.

What makes more sense?

Let’s take the possibility that an amoeba was formed from random atoms floating around in space in the last 15 billion years (assuming their calculation of the universe’s age). Let’s underestimate this possibility to be 1 out of 1,000,000,000. What does this mean? That the probability of the creation of another cell attached to it is at least 1,000,000,000 x 1,000,000,000 = 10^18 power. (assuming that the first cell would still be alive at that point). The probability for the next cell to form would be 1 out of 10^27 power. Factor into this the number of cells in existence from time began and you have an impossible probability.

Let’s make it simpler to understand – if randomness takes 15 billion years to form one cell, the appearance of the second cell in history would appear another 15 billion years later.

Also how do you explain the existence of atoms themselves, molecules, electrons, cells, light, order in nature, order in the universe, laws of physics? Order cannot come from randomness.

Someone once asked Rabbi Meir Baal Haness to prove the existence of G-d. Rabbi Meir said to return to him tomorrow. The next day the man wanted his answer. Rabbi Meir said before I answer I want to to read this poem. The man was impressed by the beauty of the poem. He asked who wrote it. Rabbi Meir replied, I was sitting by the table and the ink spilled by accident on the parchment and out came this poem. The man replied “impossible, something so beautiful cannot be formed like that.” Rabbi Meir then said – this is your proof of the existence of G-d. Such a perfect and orderly world cannot come to existence through randomness.

Once one believes in G-d it makes sense to explore Judaism.
The Torah has Commandments for all humanity and for Jews:

The commandments for all humanity are the seven Noahide Laws
