*What the source of metaphysical which could found in every human being?
Do we have a value beyond that physical world!!
Could three meals a day and pocket money, clothing and medicine be consolation enough for a man knows he was born to die ?
Since the beginning of time man has sought something greater than the need of the body ... something with a higher value, even if he does not know about it he still found it in his unconscious.
Man's Search for the lost Paradise.. Prick of our moral conscience...
Homo sapiens or homo religious?
Through history we could find cities without walls without armies without factories but there is no city without a temple...
What is the Darwinian justification for the instinct of religiosity?
What is the source of moral capital that inherited from early humans?

*Tow people on the road tired of walking ...
One of them decided to set under a tree outside the road to avoid getting hit by a car ... the other set on the road maybe a car pass by and stop to left them .
A car came along and the driver couldn’t see the one on the road and hit the break and drift outside the road and hit the one who's sitting under the tree !!!
Why logic don’t work some times ?
Why sometimes when we decide to do something we could wake up the next morning with a different opinion without even thinking!!
Dr. Wilder Penfield best known for his remarkable studies of, and successful treatment of, hundreds of patients afflicted with epilepsy. This work involved surgical exposure and electrode stimulation of brain tissue in fully conscious patients.
Wilder Penfield said, “Through performing surgery on more than a thousand epileptic patients, he encountered concrete evidence that the brain and the mind are actually distinct from each other, although they clearly interact."
In other word your leg could move or shake while you are trying so hard to stop it.
If a person is just chemical reactions
How do we explain that a person has a will separate from the electrochemical activity?

*How would you expect to see the sky if you are being held at a closed box ?
Is that mean the sky does not exist because you don’t see it ?
When the level of your natural vision extends to 2 km how you want to see someone at a distance of 50 km to believe he does exist?
What if human capacity will remain incapable of physical proof of God?
What if human inability of the physical proof of the existence of God is the main
test of human beings for which God created heaven and hell ?

*Why do we consider heroes victorious even if they died without profitable result?
Is there a value of it in another world that we dont know about ?
What is the value of non utilitarian ethics ?
Utilitarian ethics has its value from this world ... does the non utilitarian ethics take its value from another world?
Is that why we do it sometimes because deep inside of us we could feel that it has a meaning and value in metaphysical world .
Do we come into being with a heavenly introduction?

*Empiricism says that man can not invent anything without a fromer experience or a previews idea about it .
In his book "The human understanding," John Locke (1632-1704 AD) asked of the source of human knowledge. How do we know what we know? Is it inherited or acquired? Do we know what we know through conclusion or experience?
Experience, and experience alone is the source of human knowledge.
George Berkeley (1685-1753 AD), and David Hume (1711-1776 AD) agreed .
So Where does the idea of God existence come from ?
Could people invented multiple gods as the result of the original idea ... the original experience of the existing of the one real God ?
Let's assume that God does exist ...
Ok ?
Don't you think it would be more logical ( from that perspective)to have one and only god ? otherwise we would find contradiction and conflict in the world around us ... ?
Some could have returned to life after death and the sun could rises from the west acording to every god well and type and those who worship him .

*Why the worlds most notorious atheist British philosophy professor Antony Flew who was a leading champion of atheism changed his mind and believes in God after being an atheist since age 15 ? , Flew said biologists' investigation of DNA "has shown, by the almost unbelievable complexity of the arrangements which are needed to produce (life), that intelligence must have been involved. ”He also indicated that the Big Bang creation event had been a problem for his atheism "because it suggested that the universe had a beginning just like what the holy books said.
Could the same thing happen in the future with Richard Dawkins based on the same point ? ( The possibility to find evidence of design in biology).
Didn't he said : You might find a signature of some sort of designer . !!!
Some find that biology proof the existence of God, and some said the opposite
To those who said the opposite ... If all the knowledge of the world accounted for 100% What is the percentage of biology out of it ?
Lets say 10% ...
What is the percentage of human knowledge about biology out of this 10% ?
5 % ?
Ok ..
Is it fair or even logical to build our whole judgment of something as big as God existence out of only 5% of knowledge ?

*What is evolution value of hymen in a human female?
Why nature has chosen to differentiate between virgin and non-virgin?
Does nature know of the moral value of it?

*How could we make a compatible between evolution & the second law thermodynamic ?
Organisms needs time to evolve ... here we could say that time is a positive factor .
But on the other side thermodynamic proves that the universe is heading towards a final ``heat death
So time here is a demolition worker.....

*Throughout history human experience proves that ego and arrogance and stubbornness are the foundation of all evil .

P.S: Some thoughts of the topic are mine and some were taken from different sources .
