No, it is the physical universe which though it provides us a place to live, is also of a makeup which can cause our death. It is a balance between life and death, where the very thing which will cause our death is what we need to have a life, as in a life of accomplishment, in actually doing physical things.
This "difficulty before us" may be the definition of God,some speak the truth without knowing what they are doing.
My bad....I thought that by looking in a mirror or at the sky or all around you.....but I was wrong and sources ....well, as much as we want to see.
The title of your thread states "God exists because..." Yet you offer no proof or sources.
Then everything is born and the question is from what ,from chaos?
I have a feeling that there are good things but that may depend of our works here on Earth.

Its because we have instinct to stay alive and we don't know what is there for us afterwards,if there is anything at all,so we fear it.
Sorry to ask,what book and what recruits.Recruits for what?
If you are trying to recruit converts, your word is not enough. Neither is the "fabulous book of fairy tales" which can be proven to have been compiled from earlier sources.
father? not mine! last time i checked,you need a mother in there as well to make life.
and by the way happy spring,the goddess Persephone has come back from Hades!!!
I would think of the entire universe as the product of the universal mind which brought about the universe and is now incorporated into that universe which was created, including us, and God, where we are all an image of what that thought had as its goal to being, where the creator is in all of us, including God, and including humanity as a whole, and on another level, as individuals. We exist in the universe to have lives and fulfillment as entities who will inhabit the universe, and there are struggles that come with living in a universe, things we need to learn to deal with and to overcome, as all being the parts of that whole who existed before the universe as we know it.
We are in the image of the Creator containing the essence of spiritual Light, although there is a great deception that we are 'god' or can attain such a status in this bound flesh. The flesh is contained and limited for a Divine Purpose in our overcoming this world in Graceful alignment for 'progression'/spiritual evolution. Not all however can 'ascend' to that graduated 'level', though the True teachings of the Christ showed the Way, Truth and Life to the Mansions of the Kingdom. That is Key, though there are many traps in the midst of worldly opposition forces.
Even if God would appear in front of you, you will still not believe in the existence of Him,I guess,in my humble opinion...so on.

You have yet to prove that God exists to me yet. Are you more able to prove the existence of the "soul"?
Why do ants exist? Why do bacteria exist? Why do slugs exist? Why does anything exist? Good questions. We are no different than those other things.

I am sure you will give a logical answer.
