The 2001 Translation CommentariesDoes God Exist?

The Creation of Adam
The Creation of Adam, by Michelangelo, 1511

This scriptural commentary is not an official view of the 2001 Translation project. We are not a religion and we do not establish doctrine; these commentaries reflect a variety of views and some disagree with each other. Anyone can submit a commentary for inclusion (see requirements).

When a person says “there is no God”, we say that it shows a lack of thinking depth.

How can we say that? Well, consider what we learn from science. According to scientists, our universe exists in a realm where there is no time or space. How do they know that?

Time and space are features of our universe… they’re just parts of the universal algebraic equation E=MC2. That is, energy, matter, distance, and time are the foundation blocks of our universe.

So, outside of our universe, these things don’t exist.

Therefore, the true scientific conclusion is that either:

Indeed, the ‘big bang’ could never have started, because if there is no time, there can be no starting point. The popular ‘multiple universe’ theory can’t be true either, because there can’t be two or more (in fact, there can’t even be one) universe where there is no space.

So, how can something come into existence without a starting point and no location or space for it to be? Actually, that’s impossible… unless we draw the only logical conclusion that our universe came from an already existing intelligence and power from outside of our universe.

Therefore, when someone says that there is no God, understand that it’s less likely that we and our universe exist than to conclude that God doesn’t exist.

Why? Because we live in the real ‘Neverland’… It always was, but it never was. We are His imagination.
