Is there a God?

Importance of this issue:
Whether there is an all-powerful God or not has tremendous implications for the existence and continuation of your life, as well as preparations for a possible afterlife.
Not caring about whether or not there is a God is something like an electric robot not caring if there is such a thing as electricity: you can get by seemingly ok as long as the power stays on, but at the same time it's all-important to understand concerning your existence and what makes it run.
People who, out of pride of themselves and often their own intelligence, would have you believe that they exist but God does not. Though unseen God is far more real than any human.
People who personally believe there is a God but would try to convince you otherwise to deny you the power of that relationship, to help to control, enslave, or abuse you.
Clinging to false or incomplete scientific principles as though they show the whole truth. Human science admits the existence of God in not having any other explation for creation other than a force outside of time, space, and matter causing it. That force is God. Similarly there are the following unreasonable beliefs which should have been extinguished as valid ideas:
The idea that Evolution by Natural Selection was the force behind the complex design of all life, from matter to humans and beyond. No, not even Darwin believed that and he specifically mentioned the 'Creator' in his original work The Origin of the Species, before it was altered by people apparently because they didn't want you to see that (once I saw this in my old copy for myself I lost all respect for those promoting evolution as truth). But even from the title itself, I think it's clear that Darwin only intended his model to explain differences between species, perhaps in the same family or genus, but not the creation of all life from nonliving matter. Otherwise the title would have been different. Furthermore the theory of evolution has serious scientific problems which are just not often admitted to; the first time I heard about them was from a second-year university course on evolution. But it's not admitted to the public. Here are some:
the fact that sexual reproduction, which most animals use, vastly decreases the reproduction rate per being, which works strongly against the drive for maximizing the number of offspring which is supposedly the engine of the evolutionary mechanism
that according to a basic principle of physics, called the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the universe tends to greater disorder all the time. Some would say unless acted upon by consciousness but that's beside my most immediate point. You can see this in everyday life: things which are not maintained tend to fall apart rather than becoming more ordered on their own. Does your bedroom clean itself? Does your car fix itself? How this relates to evolutionary theory is for the extreme complexity of the biochemical machine of a living being to form from vastly less ordered inorganic matter, that is not physically possible to happen on its own.
There is no practical advantage to select for in incomplete systems which evolve in small steps, such as a heart. A nonfunctional beginning of a heart is no help, in fact it's a liability because it's sopping up nutrients and adding weight for no use.
As far as mutation goes, we need to admit there's a difference between anabolic and catabolic forces. Basically you don't build a beautiful small statue out of rubble by hitting it enough times with a wrecking ball.
the view that only the physical visible & tangible world is real. Actually there's a lot of science investigating things we cannot see, taste, or touch, such as magnetic and electric waves. Even most of the matter in the universe scientists call 'dark matter' admitting we can't observe it yet for unknown reasons but it's there. And that's without talking about other dimensions which are supposed to exist by current scientific theories.
Admit that you didn't make yourself. In fact the human body is so complex no human understands how it all works. Rather even medical professionals focus on only a part of this sophistication.
Give credit to who or what did make you.
Admit that for something as biochmically and biologically complex as life, being more complicated than anythign any human has ever built, it probably took a conscious being to do it rather than just an accident of matter.
Admit you are responsible to whoever made you.
Try to figure out who He is and what He expects of you.
