Evidence of God : Does He Exist

If one were asked what the most highly debatable is today , it would no doubt be focused on the existence of God . There is no other that spurs as much interest in the people as religion -most probably because it is a very personal aspect of our lives . Religion molds us into who we are and defines our very actions in everyday lives . From my own point of view , there is no doubt as to the existence of God .
