      • Can't prove there is a God, can't prove there isn't either.
      • Religion has been around for so many years, religion can't just be made up by a person.
    • Arguments against God
      • If he exists why does he allow there to be suffering in the world.
      • We can't prove there is a God
      • If there is one God why are there so many religions?
      • If he is so powerful why does he allow there to be evil in the world?
      • If some suffering is caused by free will - what about the natural causes that are not caused by humans? If there is a God why desn't he prevent natural disasters?
