They have also believed that an effective rational argument for god's existence is an important first step in opening the mind to the possibility of faith—in clearing some of the roadblocks and rubble that prevent people from taking the idea of divine revelation seriously. The mind of god: the scientific basis for a rational world [paul davies] on amazoncom free shipping on qualifying offers throughout history, humans have dreamed of knowing the reason for the existence of the universe.

All of the pioneers of science started with the conviction that a rational god had made the world in accordance with number, weight, and measure (wisdom of solomon chapter 13), and that he had created us in his image, sharing a spark of divine wisdom. Now the non rational idea has become a rational idea if you go deep into the foundations of science, mathematics etc you will find that it rests not on solidity but on ideas and assumptions and just thought patterns. Science can never prove or disprove the existence of god, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we're not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving.
The case that provides the strongest evidence for god's existence this is the way scientists would settle an argument about existence claims: by adducing data. Arguments for and against the existence god are like arguments for and against the existence of hunger as hunger is a deeply felt physical/physiological state, the need for god is a deeply felt spiritual/mental state. Recent scientific discoveries have physicists and philosophers alike radically revising their ideas on the nature of the universe, and indeed the existence of god countless years and hours of calculations and mind-bending theories continue to reach the conclusion that the universe has a beginning, and did not occur by chance. Modern physics has given us a number of very convincing mathematical theorems and empirical data sets which point towards the existence of a transcendent god, but the most convincing arguments still come from the realm of philosophy, which is actually quite scientific in the classic sense of the word (to know something.
Given the possibility that god actually does exist and assuming the infinite gain or loss associated with belief in god or with unbelief, a rational person should live as though god exists and seek to believe in god. Since science cannot disprove god, god is not a scientific hypothesis, and, as the author points out, somehow depending on a scientific suggestions of god's existence because there is no other proof of the first mover at the moment, is a short term band-aid. There is no single scientific theory on the origin of life, just several hypothetical models in need of falsification what connects all of them is that they can be falsified at some point, through paleontology, genetics, laboratory experiments, extrapolation from the characteristics of modern organisms, etc. I strongly believe in the existence of god, based on intuition, observations, logic, and also scientific knowledge science, with its experiments and logic, tries to understand the order or structure of the universe.
An anglican, bacon believed in the existence of god a culture based on superstitions will do worse than one based on scientific knowledge and rational thoughts. If god's perfection is a part of the concept of god, though, and if god's perfection implies god's existence, then god's existence is implied by the concept of god when we speak of god we cannot but speak of a being that exists.

One of my favorite arguments for god's existence is called the kalam cosmological argument (kca) it consists of two premises that lead to a logically deductive conclusion the syllogism goes as follows: 1- whatever begins to exist has a cause 2- the universe began to exist 3- therefore, the universe had a cause. Traditional philosophy argued for the existence of god on the foundation of the law of causality the cosmological argument went from the presence of a cosmos back to a creator of the cosmos it sought a rational answer to the question, why is there something rather than nothing.
These scientific and philosophical arguments make a very strong case that belief in god is a rational position the odds of having what we have without god would be too large to count even if life could be possible, without god it would be meaningless. But even though science may fully understand all the details, that in no way implies that there is a god, let alone any details about a specific one on second though, the only god suggested by this argument is the god of the gaps.
