So You Say Prove To Me There Is A God

Check out C.S. Lewis' argument (currently known as "Argument from desire".)

"Most people if they really learn to look into their own hearts would know that they want and want acutely something that they cannot have in this world. There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never keep their promise. The longings which arise in us when we first fall in love, or first visit some foreign country, or first take up some subject that excites us, are longings which no marriage, no travel, no learning can ever fully satisfy. There is something we grasped at in that first moment of longing which fades away in the reality. Creatures are not born with desires, unless some satisfaction for those desires exists. A baby feels hunger, there is such a thing as food. A duck wants to swim, there is such a thing as water. Men feel sexual desire, there is such as sex. If I find in myself a desire, which nothing in this world can satisfy, then I was made for another world." --C.S. Lewis.

There is a world out there that many of us don't know about; I find all too many people stepping back from Apologetics and saying, "That's not for me" when it absolutely is, it is our hope.

There is the music of Van Morrison, therefore there is a God.

That's a good point.

--- Quote ---No solid proof for a God because it also can be alien intelligence.

Technically God is extra terrestrial.

WhiteWings:
Yep.
But that term is usually used for lifeforms from our own universe (perhaps parallel universes too)
