Is there a God (Home)

This page last updated July 22nd, 2021

Life’s big questions

Do you ever wonder if there’s any purpose in life. What makes a good life? Can I know truth, or right and wrong? Is there a God, and does he or she have any interest in me? Is Jesus in any way relevant to me?

I have researched good information from science, history and philosophy. I’ve gathered stories of people on the journey, their experiences and how they’ve worked out their own answers. And tried to illustrate what seems to work for them.

I offer my own answers, but I leave you to work out what works for you.

I hope all this may stimulate your thinking and help you on your journey.

“This is a great post and I think clearly frames the issues in an appropriate way. …. it seems you have been doing some great work with your blog. I really like the format and writing.”
Joe, November, 2018.

“If the Christian God is real then I think the conception you espouse is among the more viable options out there, and that’s a testament to your willingness to allow the data to inform your theology.”
Travis, September 2017.

“As a new christian, this has become one of my favorite sites from the first visit. Fantastic information, would love to see a book on all this out of you! …. I am just finding this blog but I love it already! I grew up in a very science heavy background and never really believed in God.”
Alex, December 2016, August 2015.

“I teach a college level course on mysticism. This is the single, best article on the subject I have found. It is fair, rational, well-documented. Put simply, it hits the nail on the head.”
Lee, December 2016.

“As far as knowledgeable Christians that you could reach out to, there’s an Aussie who goes by “unkleE” …. I was raised in a fundamentalist version of Christianity that preached biblical inerrancy …. unkleE’s theology is much more liberal/moderate (and preferable) than the one I grew up with. While unkleE and I often disagree, I have a great deal of respect for him as a person and as a Christian. He’s sincere, and that counts for a lot in my book. So if you’d like the input of a Christian, I highly recommend him.”
