Is it possible to prove the existence of a Supreme Being?
Dr. Ninian Smart discusses if it is possible to prove the existence of a Supreme Being. He says as we think of the world today, the idea you could prove the existence of God makes no sense. Dr. Smart notes that even if you could, which God would you be proving existed? He says thinking that the Bible proves the existence of God is not valid because the Bible is based on faith which always includes an element of uncertainty. What is obvious to one religious faith may not at all be obvious to another. “Maybe” becomes a very important word.
