The existence of god has been a question that has troubled mankind since it began to think reasonably. Many philosophers argue that there may or may not be a god, or that there may even be different types of gods. I have been bought up in a very religious environment with both Muslim parents working as religious teachers. That influenced my choice of religion and as they believed in Islam, so did I. Therefore my answer to whether god exists would naturally be yes. However my parents were not the only factors that affected my decision. There is lots of evidence to support my answer.

This was the beginning of everything that exists. Astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, an agnostic, stated, "The seed of everything that has happened in the Universe was planted in that first instant; every star, every planet and every living creature in the Universe came into being as a...
