As in another discussion here, it has been proven that thought can change things. What we believe happens. If you believe that a miracle will happen, then it will. If we were to look at clouds in the sky, you would see things I would not. Every man is god the father and the son. God created man in his own image...I created a son that looks like me. I am a son and also a father. Each of us is god. We create, we destroy and we control our destiny. There is no all knowing supreme being. But in your mind there is, and you will see things that in your mind validate your beliefs. For those of us who use reason and logic to explain things, we see behind the proverbial curtain and see there is no grand wizard, just a man. Our afterlife is our children. We live on in their memories. We think we have a soul because we can reason. If we are self aware, then there has to be a greater power that gave it to us otherwise why do we exist? We exist just as an ant or a butterfly exists. Nature has selected us to evolve and survive. When we die we return to the source of our existence which is the earth. We are made of the same material every other living thing on this planet is. If there was a supreme being that created us in HIS image, we would not be like every other thing on this planet. Otherwise, you are admitting god is a man, and is made of the same things we are. If you don't, then you can't say we are created in his image. It's a paradox for religion.

You want proof of God? I recommend begging instead of asking, crawling instead of walking, and tears rather than a smirk. That may be a good start.
