Proving God exists?

David A Spitz once said:

One might be asked “how can you prove that a god does not exist? One can only reply that it is scarcely necessary to disprove what has never been proved.

David A Spitz clearly hasn’t heard of hypothetico deductive reasoning model!

H0 – There is no evidence to support the existence of a deity
H1 – There is enough evidence to support the existence of a deity so that it is possible to reject the null
H2 – There is not enough evidence to support the case there is no deity, thus the null should not be rejected

On that basis, the ‘null hypothesis’ that it is not possible to know either way is proven.

As yourself this: What is the colour of the sky? The answer is that it is not blue, black, etc. The sky is the same colour all say round but we perceive it differently depending on how our eyes process it.
If you take a look at the image above, that is what bacteria looks like under the microscope. It doesn’t really look like that – the microscope is colouring it to help us understand the bacteria’s elements. It was once not possible to prove such bacteria existed, such as in animals deemed “unclean” by some religions, but science has evolved to develop instruments like the microscope. Maybe science needs a better tool for putting ‘God’ under a microscope, which it can’t do at present?
