What Are Your God Arguments?

Last week, we featured two posts by author Rebecca Goldstein (found here and here). Goldstein’s new novel, 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction, has sparked a lot of debate about atheism, people who identify as both Jewish and atheist, and the overall importance (or lack their of) of wondering if God exists at all.

And we’re not the only ones who have covered this. Over at Beliefnet, Goldstein’s book has sparked the same debates in the form of two posts by blogger Rob Dreher (found here and here). In Dreher’s first post, he debates what the point of proving God exists is. As he puts it better than I can, “if you prove at 3:00 in the afternoon that God exists, what do you do with yourself at 3:30?”

But he also leaves it open for debate. Do you have any arguments to prove or disprove God’s existence? Feel free to add in their comments section, or start a new one right here.
