So, one could argue that people are here because of evolution, animals work the way they do because of evolution, there is a great balance in nature all because of evolution.

That would, not necessarily disprove the existence of God, but prove that perhaps the process could have started with a single celled organism and worked without a God.

People give the example of getting a jigsaw puzzle and throwing it in the air a bunch of times, and see how long it takes you to make the puzzle land all together. But even then atheists could argue that if you did that for billions of years eventually it is going to land how it is supposed to (and, although the chance is there that it might happen, I don't care if you toss that puzzle for 100 billion years, i doubt it is going to land all together). But still, that is not proof either way.

My physics book was tlaking about elements and blah. Elements expand when they are heated. Contract when they are cooled. Except Water.

From zero degrees celsius to four degrees celsius, randomly, water does the exact opposite of every other element until a random 4 degrees where it starts acting normal again.

How does this prove God exists? Well, because water acts in this manner, the tops of lakes and bodies of waters freeze BEFORE the bottoms, meaning that these bodies of water Rarely freeze all the way through, ensuring that whatever plant/animal life exists underneath the ice can actually survive. This doesn't really seem like a big deal, but if the bottoms of lakes froze first, there wouldbe no life in any of these lakes or anything.

My physics book went as far as saying that "life on Earth as we know it would not be possible if water did not behave in this way."

Water does not evolve. It is just miraculously is tailored to suit life on this planet.

So, while that may not "prove God exists," it is a rpetty good addition to the other arguments I mentioned and others I did not. It is simple and perhaps fairly trivial. But how can else can you explain that water behaves in this way, against other examples of nature, without saying that someone set it out to be as such.
