God doesn't have to be a person

God doesn't have to be a person and proven scientific fact doesn't have to mean there isn't a god.

The word science, when proven beyond any reasonable doubt is simply a term used to describe the many forces in the universe and the way that everything seems to fit together. Therefore the word science describes processes and situations which can be thought of as beautiful, magical, incredible. The way flowers rely on insects and vice versa, or the way that cows need grass, which in turn needs rain, and the way the food cycle works or the seasons. All of this can be explained by the word science. However, there is little difference between this word and the word God. It's just that some people can only think of God as a person, usually a man, the all mighty father. God to me is a little bit like a word to describe a phrase such as "the way things work and connect". Human's are created in a scientific way, although the decisions we make have a strange root. We make decisions based on opinions and thoughts which come from our mind and brains and many factors, from food, to sleep, to surroundings, experiences, friends can change these decisions. So in my personal view, neurological factors can often be outside "Gods" control. We base our opinions of what God is on good and evil but in a world so complex, it's hard to judge, freewill is used because there are random neurological factors which can even influence nature such as C02. So rather than a world where we all had enough to be happy and comfortable, there are millions of life factors these days, in our complex and heavily populated planet that lead us to sway from the perfection of nature. Wars and political laws are because our choices have been affected by these complexities. Therefore God is not a person that can give us all happiness, it is also a complex makeup of forces, scientific processes and at least as humans, where on this life, as far as we know, our souls are bound by a human body, nature, or God, cannot just give everyone in the world enough food and money to have everything we want, even those of us that have faith in more than we can understand, have to be reasonable to agree that this would just be a fairy tale, and on Earth, we are goverened by the laws of nature. In terms of whether good things happening to you or being in the right place at the right time can happen to special people, for example celebrities who get amazing life breaks, or those who win vast sums of money on the lottery, we cannot say for sure whether there is a God that is using a higher power to influence these things. I reserve the right to say exactly what I think about this subject, whilst it could be a vividly pleasurable feeling to think this, no living person can describe the exact methodollogy or scientific process that causes miracles and Godly acts on Earth, these are often hard to understand, or equally remain unexplained. So I personally don't know if God is a physical person or that he isn't, but we can prove that God exists if we see it as meaning the forces of nature, energy, people, animals, planets, stars, all of the scientific processes which dexcribe incredibly powerful forces. God is the way things work, the power of them. It doesn't have to be a man or women or person. It doesn't have to be a physical being that sits in the clouds. Life is complicated enough. Why do people have to separate the beauty of nature with a book, a deity, a prophet? We are all humans, and therefore we are all creatures on Earth, equal to most extent in existence just with countless different life experiences and positions of power but we all come from the same source, female human beings who give us life. Behind that, there is a somewhat magical and scientific process behind conception which is true, in millions of different ways for all life on our planet. I think atheists can often forget the importance to majesty of the Earth, even if they believe nothing in any of the major holy books. Atheists say comments like, "I don't believe in no God, you die and that's it". What??? Is that what they think God is. Something confined simply to the question of does an afterlife exist? Yes or No? That's a different question, also one which we have no proof of in scientific terms so the only way you can feel confident about it's existence is through faith, and for that, science cannot prove or disprove, so it can only ever be a debate, we can only ever philosophise, no one has proof. The force of gravity holds everything to the Earth, but you can't see it, however most people believe it without question. The force of air, keeps nearly every living thing alive, you can't see it but you know and trust that air is what is keeping you alive without question. These can be described as god, not some fairy tale, or a political book created to govern and control peoples minds. Nature is god, proven scientific fact can describe the way the God of the Universe has decided things should work, and that isn't preaching, it's just the rawest, and simplest of truths.
