I don't believe in the empirical approach, so I'd say the only convincing evidence for any adherent is found in the experience of God. Before that it's either a gamble or utility or both.

Yeh I'm a big fan of Heb 11:1, and I do agree some people employ Pascal's Wager even though not knowingly.

I guess you know nothing about odds then.

Not surprisingly, a huge number of scientists have tried to calculate the probability of life arising by a chemical accident. The results of their calculations reveal the enormity of the dilemma faced by evolutionists. In the 1970’s British astronomer Sir Frederick Hoyle, an evolutionist, set out to calculate the mathematical probability of the spontaneous origin of life from a primordial soup environment.
Applying the laws of chemistry, mathematical probability and thermodynamics, he calculated the odds of the spontaneous generation of the simplest known free-living life form on earth - a bacterium. He determined that the probability of such an event is one chance in ten to the 40 thousandth power. Hoyle stated: “the likelihood of the formation of life from inanimate matter is one to a number with 40 thousand zeros after it. It is enough to bury Darwin and the whole theory of evolution, he said.
Mathematicians tell us if an event has a probability which is less likely than one chance in 10 to just the 50th power, then that event is mathematically impossible. Again we’re talking about one chance in ten to the 40 thousandth power. Prior to his project, Hoyle was a believer in the spontaneous generation of life. This project, however, changed his opinion 180 degrees. Now look around you at the abundance of life you see. How impossible is it that all of what you observed just accidentally formed. If you’re honest with yourself, you must admit the odds of it being accidental are impossible. The only other option is that it was created by God.

Life exists, therefore, it follows that the odds of life arising by chance HAS TO BE 1:1 . . . QED.

Guess you didn't quite get the OP did you?

Life exists because God exists. If you want to play word games go to the humor forum.

Prove it.

Word game, eh?

. . . from the OP . . . "In your opinion what are some of the most convincing pieces of evidence that God exists?"

Your response should be . . . "Life exists. I believe that this is convincing evidence that my particular version of deity exists."

But, then again, you're not that sharp . . .

The OP is about why God exists, NOT why you exist, or why life like you exists.
If you have something tangible to contribute, by all means do so. All this buzzing around just means sooner or later you'll get smacked down.

It will convince someone, just not everyone . . . sadly . . . I'll have to join Silent Hunter with a drink.

. . . because it is your argument . . .

No . . . the OP is about ARGUMENTS as to why your version of deity exists. That life exists is a pretty good one . . . though not a great one.

"Smacked down?" By you? .

Maybe you didn't notice this is a Christian site. You come on here at the owner's leisure. We already KNOW God exists. Here it is a fact.

No, the OP is; In your opinion what are some of the most convincing pieces of evidence that God exists?
Nothing about a version of a deity. God is God, there is NO other.
As usual people of your ilk like to equivocate and play word games.
It could be me or any other Christian on this site. You're not what I would call a challenge, serious or otherwise.
Just another clown.

The odds that life exists are 1:1; the odds of life coming into existence by happenstance are quite the opposite.

But don't be disappointed, I didn't expect you to be any smarter than you are.

So, you're a gnostic christian . . . good for you . . . .

No, the OP is; In your opinion what are some of the most convincing pieces of evidence that God exists?
Yeah, I quoted that one too . . . you bolded it and I didn't . . . as if that made a difference . . . .

Nothing about a version of a deity. God is God, there is NO other.
There are other deities in your version of the christian religion . . . three in fact . . . many would say that that is . . . .

As usual people of your ilk like to equivocate and play word games.
. . . and you seem to think that by bullying others you'll get your way . . . .

You're not worth my time . . . .

and you just another fool relegated to my ignore list as you really have shown you have NOTHING of importance or even relevance to say.
