Proof . . .

There are many "proofs" of God's existence. In fact there are many folk who need no proof--to them it seems self-evident.

One of the shortest proofs I've found is in this quote from Reality:

"Can the creation be perfect and the creator imperfect? Can a picture be a masterpiece and the painter imperfect in his art? For it is his art and his creation. Moreover, the picture cannot be like the painter; otherwise, the painting would have created itself. However perfect the picture may be in comparison with the painter it is in the utmost degree of imperfection."

‘Abdu’l-Bahá: Some Answered Questions, Chapter 2: "Proofs and
Evidences of the Existence of God", p. 5
