There's no evidence for God's existence!

The most common claim of the village atheist.

Dr WL Craig suggests a quick answer:

I can think of 5 reasons for belief in God:
  1. Gd is the best explanation for while anything at all exists rather than nothing, for the beginning of the universe
  2. Gd is the best explanation for the fine tuning of the universe for intelligent life
  3. Gd is the best explanation for objective moral values and duties in the world
  4. Gd is the best explanation of the historical facts concerning Jesus of Nazareth
  5. Gd can be personally known and experienced

I'd add two more:
  1. Gd is the best explanation for personhood within the universe that has self-conscious being
  2. Gd provides the best explanation for man's (humanity's) existential condition.
In true biblical fasion, 7 good reasons.

And there's one more: God makes joy, beauty and peace real.

I'll seek to enlarge on these over coming weeks. Craig says that in his experience many people are satisfied that you have reasons.
