Firstly people argue that design is evident, that possibility of life is so incredibly small that it's almost impossible so God must've had a hand
in this. The complexity of the human being is mindblowing and the nuances of it's functions so harmoniously intertwined (saying nothing of just life
in general) that it would take a mind of sufficient power to produce such an entity.
Using mathematics and probability/possibilities in this way does more harm than good when it comes to the idea of God for the following reason: if the
complexity of life, and especially humans makes the possibility of us just existing from any other source/reason a nigh impossibility... than a
being of God's complexity is theoretically a mathematical impossibility. "He" has an even lesser chance of existing than we do, if any at all.
Second, people can't fathom the universe just Big Banged into existence without some "push" or nudge from a higher power - this is where God comes
in. The idea that the universe or reality in whole is unacceptable.
There's a problem in this too. The first comes down to whether or not you believe in the idea of infinity or more specifically something can just
"exist" without ever having a beginning or end. This is a particularly hard question for theists. To answer No, we'll get into in just a moment. To
answer yes would mean to acknowledge that, yes, there are things in this universe that can just "exist" because that's what God does. The problem
with answering "yes" is that it begs another question: Why is it ok for God to be infinite and not the universe/reality? If the theist answered
"No" to the original question, no doubt thinking that there's no possible way the universe/reality just "is", it spawns a troublesome dilemma.
You must then posit that everything in reality has a beginning and an end - including God. So what or who created God? Then, what or who created the
what/who that created God?...ad infintum... ad nauseam. I don't need to point out the ridiculousness and sheer madness that comes from thinking
"what was first?" because there can't be a "first" if you believe all things must have a point of creation. That only leaves one possibility -
infinity. The universe, the multiverse, the whole of reality as we understand it, just... "is". And if you acknowledge this than God is not needed
to explain the origin of the universe/reality. He becomes... unnecessary.
I'll leave it at this for right now.
