i have not said God is the only possible explanation. But in my understanding, God is the only reasonable explanation.

What are some of the other possible explanations? Why is God the only reasonable one?

This doesn’t even begin to answer my questions. Try again.

.....
When God is taken away, nothing remains.

Nothing as explanation for all that exists. ......

slow down here…...

Why is God the only possible explanation.

i have not said God is the only possible explanation. But in my understanding, God is the only reasonable explanation.

Well this is a place to start! Thanks!
You said that when God is taken away, there is no explanation for all that exists. You agree that there could be other explanations, but God seems the most reasonable one.  Might there be “undiscovered” explanations which are even more reasonable than God?  What makes the other explanations you are thinking of “unreasonable”.

Explaining “all that exists” is sort of fuzzy—we don’t know everything that exists….  maybe I am misinterpreting your point ?

So ... the existence of ‘God’ is the only reasonable explanation of life as we experience it ? Is that what you are saying ?

that might be. In this case, we will be condemned to eternal ignorance of the most fundamental questions of our existence. But the bible says, who searches God with a open heart, he will reveal himself to that person. I experience that, but it is a personal experience, therefore i cannot use it as evidence . I can just testify that God revealed himself to me in many ways. And that is one of the reasons, i believe that the God of the bible is the true , living God, creater of the heavens, and the earth. But there is not only my personal experience, but there are many other reasons, that have made my faith in this God to be as strength as it is.
