Take two gasses, H and O, and combine them to make something new, a liguid, H2O. Where does the liquid or solid state of H2O come from? Must be from God, too. Yes, I know, everything comes from God.

Is the fact that 2=2 mysterious to you?

(If there was real evidence for God, then the smart people would see it and believe God for the evidence, then being saved may be a function of smartness, which doesn't seem fair to a lot of folks, esp. those that have loved ones with brain defects.) If so, my frustration with God is that He wants to be the supreme player of hide and seek. Why does He enjoy that game so much?

Atheists have no possible evidence for the nonexistence of God since it is
impossible to prove that anything is an accident in the ultimate sense. So
atheists attack the religion to which they were exposed in their youth as
if success there would prove atheism. Some atheists have been very much
disturbed by scientific discoveries that looked like possible evidence for
the existence of God.

Not knowing why God does what He does is irrelevant to proving that He
doesn't exist.
