When people demand that I “scientifically prove”
the existence of God, they reveal themselves as being
ignorant of both theology and science. As Sean Carroll,
physicist and atheist activist, has said “Science isn’t in the business of proving things”.

It’s a mistake to conflate atheism with science.
Nobody uses God to answer scientific questions
about the world of nature. Christians (like me)
use science to answer scientific questions. We turn
to our faith to answer the “why” questions that
science is not built to address.

Atheist: “Take me to a hospital.”
Taxi Driver: “Which one: Presbyterian, St. Vincent or Beth Israel?”
Atheist: “I’m an atheist, take me to Hitchen’s Memorial.”
Driver: “Hmm. I don’t believe that exists.”
One of the fish in my tank told the other fish that he has discovered the explanation for the daily arrival of food which he observed always coincides with a large shadow; therefore the shadow produces the food. When asked what causes the shadow, he says “it’s a natural law”.
Another fish disagreed. She believes that the shadow is a sign of some Being that lives outside of the tank entirely. She also claims (with no evidence) that this Being loves the fish and provides for them. The first fish informed her that she is irrational and unscientific.
