Consequently, nothing can exist in the absence of creation.
This physical universe exists and, therefore, is the result of creation.
Source of that creation is obviously infinite in wisdom and power with regard to the physical universe, and reflects total truth of the physical universe, and in infinite wisdom is also infinite in what man would consider goodness. So, let's call source of that creation "God."
Therefore, if we define God as "source of creation of the physical universe, infinite in wisdom, power and goodness," we have a slightly different definition than what man customarily uses, but we have an accurate definition of what we can call God.
Accordingly, we can intelligently and truthfully say God exists.
