Many Christians claim "Trees prove god exists". With that as the standard, do dead children prove god does not exist?

Many? I have heard statements by thousands of Christians, and I have never heard any one of them make such a ridiculous statement.

The 'look at the trees' argument for 'god' is an attempt at expressing disbelief that everything could exist in the way that it does, and exhibit the level of complexity that it does without guidance from an infinitely more complex 'creator'.
Of course, they have no problem inferring that this infinitely more complex 'creator' did not require creation (i.e. special pleading).

So I’ve been following God since 2016. The people that are on fire for God never use this as evidence. If someone used this as evidence they are not really grounded in their faith and more on the lukewarm side.
Someone grounded in faith would share the gospel and scripture

close many " Christians " assert
when asked for PROOF of "THEIR " god (s) ( Trinity ) just "LOOK at the TREES " the premise foundation is " THEIR " god is the "CREATOR "
My DOG also has a "PATTERN of BEHAVIOR " of BARKING at anything from a breeze propelled plastic grocery bag( some might assert the breeze is a SPIRIT " ) passing across our lawn to a cat or person even Birds that dare to INVADE her PERCEIVED DOMAIN perhaps she is motivated by a sense of "OWNERSHIP " ......... REALITY ..... FACTS Dead Children demonstrates Children are not IMMUNE from DEATH ..... Christian Doctrines as do many other RELIGIONS theist or Not play WORD games with the word DEATH and LIFE with their LIFE after DEATH ( afterlife ) CONCEPT RELIGIONS and SPIRITUALIST promote multiple SNP Supernatural propositions
DEATH is defined as the ACT of dying , the END of LIFE the "TOTAL" and "PERMANENT " CESSATION of ALL VITAL functions of an ORGANISM as Matt Dillihunty of of the ACA humorously puts it the CONCEPT of a SOUL is a Lol " the most DEAD CONCEPT ( the immaterial Mind continuation assertion ) in all of theology with no solid EVIDENCE of a soul example the studies on patients with SPLIT BRAINS two halves work independently so the idea of DISEMBODIED BRAINS persist what are the manifestations of the SOUL relationship of the brain and soul many people promote CAUSE and EFFECT are DIRECT .and SINGLE . recent studies show CAUSE is NOT always direct or singular may be multi or stages or sequentiala Biblical argument for DEAD children is a ALL powerful god that deals out punishment and KILLS ( FLOOD ) or command Abraham to kill his son Job daughter to die for a action of the god from a human plea .. Hitchens quote is "the man that PRAYS is the one who THINKS that god arranged matters ALL WRONG , but who also THINKS that he can instruct god HOW to put them right " ( religious arrogance )

You make a very good point. If the guy was good enough to make trees then whatever drove him to make childhood cancer as well?

How would a tree prove God's existence? I don't follow the reasoning at all.

🥴 God intentionally flooded the earth with children in it to kill it off and start over because mankind was wicked.
God authorized the genocide of Egypts first borns because Rameses refused to free the Jewish slaves.
God allowed Lucifer to demolish Jobs entire family to prove his loyalty.
And God ordered the death of Isaac as proof of Abrahams loyalty.
You're not understanding that all of mankind is Gods creation he made from dirt. We are expendable. But he tolerates us because he likes us and needs us to do his bidding in taking care of the earth.
Point being.... children are a small fraction of the importance of mankind.
🥴 And I don't like kids anyway. No tears shedding from me.
Although, I think tons of Atheists use the 'dead kids' excuse to have a reason to blame God or stop believing in him.
Get a life and another hobby.

All things die, that's just a reality doesn't mean there is no God because bad things happen, in fact many children are killed because of things like abortion and wickedness
