If God exists and created miracles why is all evidence hidden? We know the flood didn't happen from geological evidence, so people are forced to either believe it metaphorically or admit god intentionally hid the evidence.

The other examples particularly from the new testament we have no evidence those miracles actually happened, we only have claims that they happened. So why hasn't God given us evidence that lasted the test of time?

What sort of evidence would you expect to prove something like turning water into wine, 2000 years later?

What sort of evidence is widely accepted in a court of law to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt?

I am not aware of the evidence that the flood didn't happen. I am aware that people don't believe the flood recorded in the Bible didn't happen. Thus I am comfortable in believing the flood occurred just exactly as the Bible says.

Will God hide 'evidence'? I believe He will. Why? Because He is not interested in people coming to Him because He proves Himself to them. As far as believing God exists, God doesn't need to prove Himself to His people. He reveals Himself to His people.

Consider this, many saw the miracles of God and Jesus, and did not believe. Why?

And, we do have evidence that has lasted the test of time...the Bible. The only written Word of God on earth.
