I have often heard that you cannot prove God’s existence. While this is true, I think that using the Law of the Excluded Middle we can find a very strong case for the existence of God. Let’s start with the Law of the Excluded Middle:

The law of excluded middle can be expressed by the propositional formula p_¬p. It means that a statement is either true or false. Think of it as claiming that there is no middle ground between being true and being false. Every statement has to be one or the other. That’s why it’s called the law of excluded middle, because it excludes a middle ground between truth and falsity. – Stanford University

You are born female or you are not.

You are breathing or you are not.

You are married or you are not,

There is a God or there is not.

 

While you cannot prove that there is a God directly, we can prove with relative certainty that it is impossible for there to be no God.

The Big Bang Theory has proven the need for a beginning to time. This is nearly impossible to deny. If God does not exist, there would never have been a beginning, there would always have been nothing.

Think about it this way: If there is no God, there would be no universe.

This is because the beginning of the universe requires a cause (Law of Causality), and if there was no God, there would be no supernatural cause.

Because of the Law of the Excluded Middle, God either exists or God does not exist. There is no alternative option. If God did not exist, then there would be no cause for the beginning of the universe and therefore no universe.

What is the alternative? God exists.
