I was talking with a guy at work about Jesus and the word of God. He is very skeptical of the whole thing and doesn't really believe God exists. I told him I was watching The Discovery Channel a while back, they were saying how there must be some truth to the bible because they found that time was stopped for a certain amount of time and they traced it back to biblical times and found God did stop time. I was wondering if you could point me in the direction of scientifically proven scripture. Maybe a website or a book. This person wants proof of God [as most people do]. I know there is scientific proof, I just don't know where to look or know if I'll be able to [or he will] understand it!!
I'm sorry, ________, but the idea that scientists have proven that God stopped time is a Christian urban legend. What you are referring to is Joshua's long day. Here's the webpage that debunks that theory:
Actually, there is no PROOF of God's existence; if there were proof, there would be no place for faith! However, there is a lot of evidence. For starters, may I suggest an article I wrote on that very topic: Evidence for God's Existence.
I hope this helps!
