No, there's absolutely no evidence for the existence of ANY sort of supreme being that can be labeled "God".
There is however empirical evidence as to the existence of gravity. Why not label gravity as your God?

I have always felt that if there were an all powerful god and he wanted everyone to know he existed then he could just do something that could only be considered as impossible.
For instance, he could blow the moon up into a million pieces and reconstruct it to form the word YAHWEH. Until he completes such a miraculous act I can only assume he does not wish to be acknowledged.

I think you've got it the wrong way round there - and most reputable scholars would agree with me 100% on this one.
The organisms on this planet - over billions of years - adapted to the conditions on this planet - not the other way around. It's called evolution. And everything science has discovered points to this being the case.
If this planet were further away from the sun, would life have evolved here? Maybe. Maybe not. But there are billions of suns similar to ours out there - any one of them likely to have evolved life forms similar, or even radically different to ours. The probabilities are as endless as the number of stars - and the odds are very good that millions of planets hold intelligent life out there.
Creation??? Nah. Simple chemistry.

Perhaps this being was created as well, and is part of a larger thing, who knows.

Does God exist? Good question.
On the one hand you have people saying, all the beautiful things in the world must be because of god no? They just have to be. It couldn't of just happened that way. There has to be a divine purpose.
Then on the other hand you have other people saying, how could god have allowed some 3000 innocent people die on 9-11. If there was a god he wouldn't of let that happen. So since it happened there isn't one.
Well unfortunately the truth is that we'll never know if there is or is not a god up there. For all we know god could be running an experiment or be some sick bastard with a sadistic streak. Or the being we think is god isn't really god at all because he's the other guy. Maybe god is a child and is watching us to learn how to grow up?
Or possibly god is a being of power with no emotions no concept of right or wrong just power. If you think about it. When you have the power to change reality to your liking and create living creatures. After a long time of that you sorta become blasse about things. Maybe god is a creature of pure logic with no emotions. And he's pissed off at everyone in the universe because everyone is acting like a child in his point of view. I guess when you are as old as the universe everyone is a child.
