Atheists often claim that there is no evidence that The God of the Bible exists.
The problem is that the statement is simply untrue.
The bible is packed with statements that are verifiable in the modern world. We will cover 10 of them.
In Genesis 17 God makes an agreement with the Jews that would last forever. If the Jews ceased to exist, It would cast doubt on his existence.
Virtually all ethnicities in history go extinct by being assimilated into new cultures… The Etruscans, The Britons, The Romans, and the list goes on and on. They’re all extinct… except the Jews. Despite all odds, they continue to exist. So far, Genesis 17:7 is verified.
In Luke 21 - Jesus makes at least five verifiable statements. 1. Jerusalem would be destroyed, 2. Jews would be driven out of their homeland, 3. Jews would be brutalized everywhere they went 4. During this time Jerusalem would be controlled by gentiles, 5. Jews would regain control of Jerusalem.
1. In 70 AD Jerusalem was destroyed.
2. The Jewish people were forced to disperse from 70 AD until 1948.
3. Jerusalem was controlled by Roman until 313 AD, Byzantine till 636 AD, Persian till 968 AD, Arab till 1098 AD, Christian Crusaders 1248 AD, Mamluk 1496 AD, Ottoman until 1799 AD, and British until 1947. These rulers were all gentiles.
4. The Jews endured The Holocausts in the 1930s and 40s, pogroms in the late 1800s, and other persecutions through the last 2000 years.
5. Jerusalem was lost in 136 AD but In 1967 Jerusalem was brought back under Jewish control. These five statements by Jesus are absolutely verified.
Deuteronomy 4 says the Jews will stay small in number during the time they are away from the land of Israel.
From 60 AD until 1800 AD the world population steadily grew from around 170 million to near a billion. Despite that growth, the number of Jews in the world stayed right at around a million for 1700 years. Jewish population should have grown, but it remained roughly the same. This trend continued until the Jews began to return to Israel. Consider Deuteronomy 4:27 confirmed.
Deuteronomy 30 says that once the people have returned to the land of Israel, they would become more numerous than their forefathers.
In the 50 years before the state of Israel was reestablished the Jewish population began to skyrocket. There are more Jews living in Israel, and in the world, than there have ever been alive at one time in all of history. This is exactly what Deuteronomy 30 predicted.
In Genesis God promises that all people on Earth will be blessed through the Jews.
One way that jews have blessed the world is through their inventions and discoveries.
Jewish inventions include the pacemakers, the defibrillator, genetic engineering, stainless steel, LASERs, E=MC2, The Cholera Bubonic Plague and Polio Vaccines, Nuclear energy, google, the flash drive, drip irrigation, and many more.
Jews only makeup 0.02% of the world population but have won around 20% of the Nobel prizes. Jews have offered advancements in human well-being that far outweigh their population. Consider Genesis 12:3 verified.
Ezekiel 36:8-11 says that once the Jews return the land will blossom and become even more bountiful than it had been in ancient times.
Despite being half desert, Israel exports 1.3$ billion in agricultural products yearly. It is a world leader in agricultural technologies. It’s sitting on 7 Trillion Cubic feet of Natural Gas which was only recently discovered. 200 years ago It was a desert, now It’s producing more than it ever has. Consider Ezekiel 36:8-11 verified. It’s one of only 9 nations with orbital launch capability. Intel, Microsoft, and Apple’s first non-US R&D centers were in Israel. Israel has the highest per-capita Scientists, Engineers, and Technicians in the world.
Amos 9 The Ruins of Israel would be rebuilt. This started in 1882. Now the nation ranks in the top 8% of the world on the Human Development Index.
Ezekiel 36 Prosperity of Israel would return. Israel’s GDP Per Capita now ranks in the top 11% of the world.
Isaiah 51 Their deserts would become lush. What was once desert is now high production farmland through the use of precision agriculture and advanced technology.
Isaiah 41 Trees would grow in Israel once more. 1n 1867 Mark twain called Israel “a silent mournful expanse… there was hardly a tree or shrub anywhere.” However, Now the Jewish National fund estimates that 240 million trees have been planted in Israel since 1901.
Isaiah 27 Israel’s fruit would fill the world, which wasn’t even technologically possible when it was written thousands of years ago. Israel not only exports fruits and flowers all over the world today, but the Israeli-developed technology to grow them are being used almost everywhere modern agriculture is happening.
As you can see, there is plenty of evidence that God exists.
So, to claim that there is no evidence that the god of the bible exists is really quite ridiculous.
