Because, I know God exists.

You would like to know why?

Because, I have faith.

There is a God because you have faith in it?

Then I can fly, cause I have faith in it.

The alternative thinking is that everything came from nothing and I don't think that. I believe God is the creator and that's it.

But you can't fly. Therefore, faith doesn't equate truth. Therefore, God does not exist.
