Look, this whole proof/evidence thing is nonsense. God and religion is not about proof, it's about faith. Either you believe in Him as a matter of faith or you don't, it's as simple as that. If He does exist, He certainly isn't interested in proving it with some kind of evidence - he wants you to believe in Him by faith. That's what faith is - it exists outside the realm of proof or logic or evidence. Don't even try to link them up - it can't be done.

Incidentally, those who need proof of things before they recognise their existence ought to consider love. You can't prove you're in love with someone by taking a blood test. You can't prove you love your Dad or your Brother or Sister (assuming you do). You just know you do. That love 'exists' in the same way that God 'exists'. By faith - you know it's true, irrespective of proof or evidence to the contrary.
