Can science prove the existence of God? (Synopsis)

“It's so easy to become a grumbler, someone who condemns and carps at everything on principle and sees an ulterior motive behind it.” -Eric Metaxas

If we find out that we truly are alone in the Universe, whether there’s no other life, intelligent life, or spacefaring life, there’s no doubt that makes us special. But does that make us divinely chosen? Or, even more to the point, does that mean that the Universe was designed to give rise to human beings; with us in mind as the end goal? That isn’t necessarily a question we can know the answer to, but it’s something we can approach with science.

In particular, we can ask three separate questions:

  1. What are, scientifically, the conditions that we need for life to arise?
  2. How rare or common are these conditions elsewhere in the Universe?
  3. And finally, if we don’t find life in the places and under the conditions where we expect it, can that prove the existence of God?

The questions themselves are interesting, but what science has to say about all of them might be the most interesting thing of all.

@990,
“ as you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) ”

Yes, that’s correct.

Ethan has shown that Science is unable to provide complete information of the natural world (http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/2017/02/10/why-science-will-nev…)

I’ve pointed out that the inadequacy is true also for the natural plus the supernatural world in which your purported God exists.

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

1) So what?
2) Lie. Many people did.
3) You were one of them.

you love your lies, don’t you, teabaggie.

===
You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie.

Therefore you have lied.
===

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

Lie. Many people did. You were one of them.

===

#473 As I did not specify either, my criticism of the philosophical position required to support your position stands.

===

357:

” “As my opinion that Science cannot prove the existence of God passed without comment”

===
499:

“… Uh, we can *describe* it quite well. As a brain surgeon.”
You are mistaken

I used the word “mind” not “brain”.
The two are not the same.

It didn’t, though.”
It has so far.

===

If one defines Physicalism as the belief that the universe is only composed of everything known by physics, one can point out that physics cannot describe how the mind functions

===

Unlike some other commenters, I am cautious about what I claim is true.

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
===

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

===

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

===

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

===

“… you don’t get to refuse to defend your asinine claims …”

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

“I did not ask you to post false statements.”
===

“… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”

Both statements are accurate.

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.

(Note: "needs fleshing out" != "fails to describe" already pointed out)
===

That sounds like another of your Professions of Faith, O Man of Great Faith

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===
“Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
What post # was that?”

cf

...as you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)..

===

Now you’re defining how God must interact with the natural world

===
That is a Credo
===
While you are entitled to proselytize your Beliefs, this may not be the best forum for doing so.
===
Claims based on Faith, such as the one @ #870
===

There’s no need to get excited, old bean.

===

As you have been documented engaging in that activity,

===
“… the accusation stands proven.”
Yes, the accusation that you post false statement you know to be false does stand proven.
===

“… And it is poisoning the well, another fallacy.”
Documenting your posts @ #798 & #710 is not a fallacy.

===

“… “Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)?”

Is a formal fallacy: the generic fallacy.”

No, I don’t agree that Ethan’s post is a formal fallacy.

===

Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world.

===

I will admit that I prefer Reason to Faith.

===

I prefer Science to what you seem to practice.

===

Again, claims based on which admit of no possibility of error (ref here “right with or without evidence”) are assumptions – faith based, not reasoned ones

===

Science can prove the existence of God [the claim], the type of assertion you are making is not the type of assertion normally associated with Science. It is a Credo
===

Such Faith claims, like yours @ #870 are unassailable by reason.

===

They are, just as yours is, True-Because-You-Said-So, and all are expected to Believe them, and yours.

cf #546
cf "the Mind is natural, while not observed"
cf "You're lying teabaggie"

[John response @596] Then what can be known by Science is, in and of itself, insufficient to prove God exists.

Both statements are accurate “

Yes, that’s correct.

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

Yes, O Man of Great Faith, you do exhibit that behavior.

Nothing you want in those 11 posts, so you "forget" they even exist.
===

plus the supernatural world in which your purported God exists.

===

The current list of lies and bullshit from you, teabaggie, all because you'd rather spew bullshit than talk rationally with someone you don't agree with (but can't explain why).

Pitiful.

BUT HILARIOUS!

HA! Don't know what radiation is, nor what a geiger counter is (kinda reasonable since you don't know what radiation is!). Obsessed with faith and evidence for it!

Fucking priceless.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

@ #1000
Coarse language and creating a hostile environment do not substitute for rational argument.

Remember, as you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, the burden of proof lies on you, not me.

You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim.

So, teabaggie, can a geiger counter prove radiation exists?

Or will you just regurgitate the same stale vomit as before?

Coarse language, irrelevant and hectoring posts, knowingly posting falsehoods as you did @ #708 & #710, and creating a hostile environment do not substitute for rational argument.

Remember, as you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, the burden of proof lies on you, not me. You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim, and you're unlikely to do so.

Since you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one), and rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation, I suppose we shouldn't expect much from you.

Ethan, can you please BAN this caustic Bitch WOW? She constantly talks in circles. NEVER making any scientific based argument butt merely inflammatory rhetoric back by circular reason.

John has exposed her bull Shit OVER AND OVER in this thread.
Just Ban The Bitch. If even for a week..
Thanks

Would it be easier to ignore the post altogether? That way you don't have to choose to get riled over that with which you do not agree. WOW, or John are not making you lose your cool; you are the only one who decides whether to be angry, or not.

@ #1006
We all remember who made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, and know where the burden of proof lies. To date, no evidence to support that claim has been provided, and it is unlikely there ever will be.

True Believers believe without proof that God does or does not exist. Hasnain believes without proof that God does exist. Each of them asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position, and stridently deny weaknesses in their own intellectual position. They are two sides of the same coin; they are both True Believers. Not only do they both not agree with me, but they also disagree with each other.

Hasnain, to his credit, was honest, unlike those who knowingly post false statements, as happened @ #708 & #710 in this thread. Dishonesty like that is unsurprising, as the tool being used, Science, cannot describe all the natural world, much less a presumed supernatural one containing a supernatural God, and that tool rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation. “The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n”. One can only imagine the despair (s)he wallowed in, once the hopelessness of that cause was finally understood, if it ever was.

We’ll never know, of course, how many potential contributors to these threads have clicked away to other good Science blogs, Field of Science (The Curious Wavefunction in particular) for example, put off by the loutish behavior and foul language used here by some.

This forum isn’t for them, it’s for people who are not prejudiced.

PJ, teabagging medium wants me banned because they hate anyone who doesn't respect the cult he's following.

Tabaggie here just wants to lie. and ignore questions they can't lie about.

See the following list:

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

1) So what?
2) Lie. Many people did.

Fucking about and making shit up, that's what.

@ #1009

From Ethan:

“Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we’re not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving ourselves of what we might have come to truly learn.”

Science, cannot describe all the natural world, much less a presumed supernatural one containing a supernatural God, and that tool rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation.

Goodness John, you and Wow are up to a thousand posts and you still haven't progressed beyond 'science limited! God possible!' ???

“The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heav’n of Hell, a Hell of Heav’n”. One can only imagine the despair (s)he wallowed in, once the hopelessness of that cause was finally understood, if it ever was.

It's a 'he.' Milton the author was male, and the character Satan in Paradise Lost is also male. Its clear from other bits of the poem that Satan feels despair and knows exactly the price he's paying for his rebellion. Though arguably Milton made revenge and pride - not despair - his lead character's most powerful personality traits. Thus the famous line, "Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heav'n."

@ #1012

The context of your excerpt follows ...

"Hasnain, to his credit, was honest, unlike those who knowingly post false statements, as happened @ #708 & #710 in this thread. Dishonesty like that is unsurprising, as the tool being used, Science, cannot describe all the natural world, much less a presumed supernatural one containing a supernatural God, and that tool rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation. “The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heav’n of Hell, a Hell of Heav’n”. One can only imagine the despair (s)he wallowed in, once the hopelessness of that cause was finally understood, if it ever was."

I was referring to neither Milton nor Satan.

Goodness John, you and Wow are up to a thousand posts and you still haven’t progressed beyond ‘science limited! God possible!’

Hell, I[ve gone further than that. He just keeps bleating on about how I have to have evidence to show that god exists before I can claim that science can prove god exists.

He's also paralyzed with fear over the question:

Can a geiger counter prove radiation exists?

He ignores it totally, as if it's some sort of kryptonite to him

But, no, only teabaggie here is stuck at "science limited! "

God possible isn't even what I'm at, it's:

Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones and those acts confirmed as proof and evidence of the existence of god, just like it would prove the existence of any natural actor in nature.

Therefore, yes, science can prove the existence of god

He just keeps bleating on about how ethan's proven that science is limited and I have no evidence that god exists, so I must be a religious person.

Fucking moron that he is doesn't even care about what's said.

Ah. You were referring to the guy who was banned for spamming the board over and over and over again with cut and pasted material as "honest." I think I'll take Wow's profligate insults over that type of honesty.

Science, cannot describe all the natural world, much less a presumed supernatural one containing a supernatural God, and that tool rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation.

Since this thread is already long and not advancing, allow me to ask a sidebar: so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him. Do you think he did that on purpose, or was he simply unable to create a world where human scientific investigation could reach him?

@ #1015
"... You were referring to the guy who was banned for spamming the board over and over and over again with cut and pasted material as “honest.” I think I’ll take Wow’s profligate insults over that type of honesty."

The text to which you refer follows …

“Hasnain, to his credit, was honest, unlike those who knowingly post false statements, as happened @ #708 & #710 in this thread. Dishonesty like that is unsurprising, as the tool being used, Science, cannot describe all the natural world, much less a presumed supernatural one containing a supernatural God, and that tool rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation. “The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a Heav’n of Hell, a Hell of Heav’n”.

I was not referring to Milton, or Satan, or Hasnain.

It is true this thread is already long, so I remind you that the title is "Can science prove the existence of God?".

Ethan has already addressed the limits of Science in re its ability to describe the natural world.

"... so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him ..."
I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

Feel free to pursue your theological questions with others who also find them interesting.

I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

LOL John, this entire thread seems to consist of you telling us the positions you *don't* take. Hundreds of posts, and what I've gleaned is (1) you don't like Wow, but feel compelled to respond to his jabs every time, (2) current science doesn't explain everything now, (3) you categorically refuse to tell us what you think we should do, if anything, in response to point #2.

teabaggie has found that it's only when the moron admits saying something that he might be proven wrong, so he avoids that catastrophe to his ego by insisting on not saying anything.

And, to avoid being asked to support his assertion that science cannot possibly be used to prove god, he doesn't accept he said it, he claims Ethan says it.

teabaggie doesn;t even care to prove that his claim, to whit:

" you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation"

is relevant, just insanely rants and raves about how EVERYONE ELSE is a religious nutbar.

Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.

@ #1017
“… this entire thread seems to consist of you telling us the positions you *don’t* take.”

In re #2: “The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know.

In re #3: Me telling anyone what to do about #2 is not the point of this thread, but you knew that already.

@ #1018
“… And, to avoid being asked to support his assertion that science cannot possibly be used to prove god, he doesn’t accept he said it, he claims Ethan says it.”

You remain mistaken. I have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God. Neither, for that matter has Ethan, and you also knew I have not claimed Ethan said it when you posted that falsehood.

” you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation”

It is accurate to say Science cannot describe all the natural world. Ref here E. Siegel, “The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.”
(http://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2017/02/10/why-science-will…)
If, instead of posting false statements known to be false when posted, and instead recognizing the limits of Science, as evidenced in Ethan’s quote of Werner Heisenberg, one can appreciate and enjoy the wonder and splendor of reality as seen through that limited lens. To admit such limitations is only to acknowledge that humans have limitations. Some, such as Herr Heisenberg, accept that fact. I do too. I leave it to foolish people to claim otherwise.

The incompleteness of Physicalism is well documented. Besides the absence of any scientific theory of the Mind, there is Physicalism‘s problems with Knowledge.

“… just insanely rants and raves about how EVERYONE ELSE is a religious nutbar.”
I have ranted and raved about nothing, insanely or otherwise. I have identified at least two True Believers, one on each side of the “Does God Exist?” argument. One believes without proof that God does not exist. Hasnain believes without proof that God does exist. Each of asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position. Hasnain is the other side of a two-sided coin. They are both True Believers. Not only do they both not agree with me, but they also disagree with each other.

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

@ #1014
In re the last sentence: As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

“… so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him …”
I have not expressed that opinion

But the question has to suppose that god exists else the answer has to be "no" for the trivial rason that it has alternatively to be presumed it doesn't. You insist that you aren't saying god doesn't exist, so in the context you have to accept god does.

And if god does, then you're saying what eric posted.

You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

Because you insist on making statements and claims then disclaiming any claim you make. Any attempt to interpret is refused by you. Either you are saying nothing (evidently not true) or you're hiding the meaning of your statements and we have to express that meaning for you.

And you're EXTREMELY plentiful in your insistence on putting words in people's mouths. Like "one says god doesn't exist", which is a lie, or "one says god does exist", which wasn't said only implied for a specific version of god.

I have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God.

Then it can be.

It is accurate to say Science cannot describe all the natural world.

That is irrelevant.

One believes without proof that God does not exist.

Where did i say that? Nowhere.

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

Except you think "god" means "the christian god", the only one I showed science proved didn't exist. Moreover, that's why you have such a hard-on (to the extent you can) to fight me down with endless bullshit and nonsense. I've proved one god doesn't exist, and that REALLY winds you up.

Your claim that science is limited does not indicate that it cannot investigate the actions of even supernatural agents that affect this reality. You even admit that a ghost opening a door leaves a door whose state can be measured scientifically. The act of a god making a miracle is an act that changes this reality, and that is one of the features of the general belief of what god is: it does miracles.

So this shows that science can prove the existence of god.

What gripes you is that if science CAN prove it exists, it can also DISPROVE it exists, so you insist on the NOMA to protect god from being found false.

Evidence you are a christian apologetic.

And above there is evidence that science can prove the existence of god.

But you're a lying sack of crap, as usual, and will not even say whether a geiger counter can prove the existence of radiation. Because to start to say something you KNOW (even if you don't know how) leads to you making the wrong claim for your obstructionist bullshit.

@ #1022
“… You insist that you aren’t saying god doesn’t exist, so in the context you have to accept god does …”

Your proposition is foolish nonsense. It is true that I have not said God exists, and it is also true that I have not said that God does not exists.

“… Because you insist on making statements and claims then disclaiming any claim you make. Any attempt to interpret is refused by you. Either you are saying nothing (evidently not true) or you’re hiding the meaning of your statements and we have to express that meaning for you.”
If you wish to know my opinion you may ask me for it. If I decide to provide it, you will then receive it.

“ “I have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God.”
Then it can be. “

You are mistaken. Whether or not “science cannot possibly be used to prove God” (#1018) is independent of whether or not I have asserted so, which I have not.

“ “It is accurate to say Science cannot describe all the natural world.”
That is irrelevant.”

You are mistaken.
As Ethan elected to refer to “God” in the title of this post, it is reasonable to think Ethan ink was referring to “the one Supreme Being, the creator and ruler of the universe” (ref available on request) This entity is commonly defined as supernatural (ref available on request).
For your claim “science can prove the existence of god” (#948) to be true, it (Science) would have to be a complete description of the natural world so that “Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones …” (ibid). As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it, not only is your conclusion false (wrong), but the fact that Science cannot describe all the natural world is intimately related to the thread topic, “Science cannot describe all the natural world”.

“ “It is accurate to say Science cannot describe all the natural world.”
That is irrelevant.”

You are mistaken.

No I am not. You have presented absolutely no proof that it is relevant and refuse to make any claim about it being relevant, and therefore it is not relevant, or on other words, irrelevant.

Repeating an irrelevant claim does not make it relevant.

Your claim is still irrelevant. Therefore science can prove the existence of god under the presumption that it can act to change this reality.

As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it,

No, my conclusion does not depend on science being able to describe all the natural world.

Your assertion is false.

For your claim “science can prove the existence of god” (#948) to be true, it (Science) would have to be a complete description of the natural world

Prove it.

In monotheism, God is conceived of as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith.[3] The concept of God as described by most theologians includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), divine simplicity, and as having an eternal and necessary existence. Many theologians also describe God as being omnibenevolent (perfectly good) and all loving.

Nope, nowhere does it claim supernatural in there.

"You remain mistaken.
As Ethan elected to refer to “God” in the title of this post,"

Irrelevant to your claim, though.

So your claim "it (Science) would have to be a complete description of the natural world " remains irrelevant, since there's nothing about "god" in that claim. Doubly so if you wish to include a supernatural god in there, since nature doesn't include supernature, nor does a lack of complete natural explanation exclude any supernatural conclusion.

@ #1022
“… Except you think “god” means “the christian god” …”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

“… Moreover, that’s why you have such a hard-on (to the extent you can) …”
Trotting out the adolescent insults now. You do provide much entertainment.

“… I’ve proved one god doesn’t exist …”
I suppose if one defines the attributes of a deity to be sufficiently limited to those testable by the tools available to Science, then such a straw man (“God of the gaps” in the vernacular) would, unsurprisingly, be knocked down and disposed of. Such sophomoric behavior will always satisfy some.

Your claim that science is limited does not indicate that it cannot investigate the actions of even supernatural agents that affect this reality.

“You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”
You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

Strawman fallacy. The only one limiting god is you, teabaggie.

All your blather and bullshit still doesn't disprove the claim that science can prove the existence of god.

But your christian apologetics hates the idea of science proving god, because it means that science can also disprove it, and that you will not abide

"You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”
You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

Liar, teabaggie.

@ #815 referring to #804 “So a ghost opens a door. Science can’t show the door is open, measure the opening state of the door, the change of state of the door, solely because you, teabagger, insist that no supernatural actions can be discoverable in science.”

You successfully remain mistaken.

To begin, it is you who are making the claim that Science can explain the existence of God. I’m merely pointing out that you are mistaken.

To continue, Ethan elected to refer to “God” in the title of this post, so it is reasonable to think Ethan was referring to “the one Supreme Being, the creator and ruler of the universe” (reference already provided) This entity is commonly defined as supernatural ( [8 occurrences]).

For your claim “science can prove the existence of god” (#948) to be true, it (Science) would have to be a complete description of the natural world so that “Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones …” (ibid). As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it, not only is your conclusion false (wrong), but the fact that Science cannot describe all the natural world is intimately related to the thread topic, “Science cannot describe all the natural world”.

Science, being unable to provide a complete description of the natural world is also unable to describe the supernatural (all that cannot be explained by science or the laws of nature).

@ #1034
" “You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”

... chuckling ... I was quoting you, not admitting anything. Go back and look.
You're wrong again.

There are 8 occurrences of “supernatural” there.

No there aren't. See here again for where I looked:

http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/2017/01/20/can-science-prove-th…

You'll need to show what you were looking at. And if it's not there you looked, you'll have to show why wherever you did look necessarily meant supernatural.

You’re wrong again.

Since this is just a contradiction, I can ignore it.

To begin, it is you who are making the claim that Science can explain the existence of God. I’m merely pointing out that you are mistaken.

Since even you note that you're not making any claims, your pointing out is unsupported by evidence and therefore wrong.

To continue, Ethan elected to refer to “God” in the title of this post,

What does that have to do with science being unable to answer everything in our universe? There's nothing about that in this thread title.

Therefore it is irrelevant to support your claim my conclusion is unsupported, never mind wrong.

Science, being unable to provide a complete description of the natural world is also unable to describe the supernatural (all that cannot be explained by science or the laws of nature)

Irrelevant. None of my premise relies on a complete description of the natural world.

Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones and those acts confirmed as proof and evidence of the existence of god, just like it would prove the existence of any natural actor in nature.

does nt rely on science being a complete description of all of reality, nor even describe the supernatural</i?

Therefore, yes, science can prove the existence of god.

You’re wrong again.

Since that is merely contradiction, I can ignore it.

However, why do you claim that one side says there is no god when I've only said the christian one (shared by the jews and muslims)?

Because to you, with your christian apologetics, think that god==christian god.

So your refutation is not merely irrelevant but factually wrong by evidence.

Back to your Faith claim, I see.

Ref E. Siegel: “Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we’re not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving ourselves of what we might have come to truly learn.”

You do not yet appreciate what Ethan is saying.

That means you didn’t use the reference you requested (#1026)

Yes I did, teabaggie. See post 1026 again. Proof you are 100% wrong. Unless you wish to claim that my quote was not from your source...?

"Ref E. Siegel: “Science c...."

Irrelevant. Does not even exist in the title, so even you do not cite it as supported as relevant in this thread.

John:

In re #3: Me telling anyone what to do about #2 is not the point of this thread, but you knew that already.

Then we'll just continue doing science exactly the way we're doing it now, until you come up with some actionable methodological observation about science. Sound good?

@ #1042
"Then we’ll just continue doing science exactly the way we’re doing it now ..."
That means, of course, that Science will remain unable to prove the existence of God, as it is a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) and rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

"... Sound good?"
I couldn't agree with you more.

“… See post 1026 again. Proof you are 100% wrong. Unless you wish to claim that my quote was not from your source…?”

The reference you asked for at #1026, and I provided at #1028, contained then and still contains 8 instances of the term. Go back and look. You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherry_picking)

Your pratfalls are endlessly entertaining. Your posts are often good for a chuckle, although not much else, alas.

As for Ethan’s opinion being irrelevant to the topic of his thread, “Can science prove the existence of God?” (20-JAN-17), he took the effort to assist the slow learners when he subsequently (10-FEB-17) posted, “The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There's a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There's a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.” (E. Siegel, Forbes, 10-FEB-17 ,“Why Science Will Never Know Everything About Our Universe”)

Better luck next time.

Your conclusion "that Science will remain unable to prove the existence of God"

Does not arise from your premise: "as it is a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) and rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation"

Therefore is not valid and the claim stands unopposed, yes, science can prove the existence of god, teabaggie.

Not at all sorry for that.

contained then and still contains 8 instances of the term. Go back and look.

I did. This is what I found:

In monotheism, God is conceived of as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith.[3] The concept of God as described by most theologians includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), divine simplicity, and as having an eternal and necessary existence. Many theologians also describe God as being omnibenevolent (perfectly good) and all loving.

Not one place where it says supernatural there.

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”.

Nope, I've posted what defines god generally on that page. If you wanted something else to look at, I see two examples of the word used in the TITLE of a REFERENCE in the wiki page. Are you cherry picking the count and completely ignoring the context?

Damn straight, teabaggie. always projection with you creotard apologists, innit.

As to

The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, ...he Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be

Nothing about god or exclusion of everything there, so it is irrelevant to this thread. Your boneheaded insistence that it must be repeated does not make it relevant, teabaggie.

So it remains uncountered by any logical argument that, yes, science can prove god's existence. Your ignorance is not science's problem.

@ #1033
“… All your blather and bullshit still doesn’t disprove the claim that science can prove the existence of god.”

If there is a god and it is, as is generally defined as, the creator of this universe and everything in it, why on earth would it be supernatural? It's the most natural thing in existence. It's just not (yet) described in the laws of nature.

Almost certainly because it doesn't exist, therefore there's no law for it to operate under since it doesn't exist.

But if it did exist, it would be the most natural thing ever.

And even if it were supernatural and forever outside reality, what, then does it mean for it to exist, if it doesn't, really, exist? But even so, it's supposed to be omnipotent by the commonest definitions, so there's nothing there to limit it to "only those interactions that science can never investigate", since that would be a non-illogical limit to a power supposed to be limitless.

Omnipotence means being able to do anything that is not logically impossible. Indicating, by the way, that god operates under the laws of logic at least.

And, being omnipotent, no such definition of god can be said to be limited in power to never be able to prove itself in reality.

So, teabaggie, you are insisting that god be limited to NEVER being able to act in this reality as a presumption to keep your "god cannot be proven by science" NOMA protection up.

Your claim resides on the following necessary presumptions:

1) That science and material naturalism cannot discover some things by definition
2) That those things actually exist
3) That god all actions are all within that set
4) That no allowed god actions are outside that set

If any of those break, your assertion that god cannot be proven by science falls down.

The only presumption I have is

1) Some god actions are discoverable

And proclaiming that Ethan's 10th Feb post is relevant is to insert a different necessary claim: No god actions are discoverable.

That premise is unfounded and your complaints are illogical and unsupported by any evidence whatsoever.

“… All your blather and bullshit still doesn’t disprove the claim that science can prove the existence of god.”
Ref E. Siegel “… Science can n...

Still irrelevant. No claim of god or limit on its powers is asserted there. Not even if you repeat that bollocks again a billion times, teabaggie.

Ethan just doesn't agree with you, not even in the quote you present.

Your apologetics for the christian faith is pitiful.

"... Not one place where it says supernatural there ..."

I'm sure Ethan will be as impressed with your opinion as am I.

“ Your conclusion “that Science will remain unable to prove the existence of God”
Does not arise from your premise: “as it is a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) and rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation” “

As it is true that Science cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) and rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation, it follows that Science cannot prove the existence of God.

You remain mistaken.

Further, “The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.”

It looks like you'll remain mistaken.

HAW!

I know the problem: your claim is WRONG! If you were right you would EASILY have shown a quote form there that proved my quote wrong or out of context!

HA! Still retardo profundo, teabaggie.

… grinning … It remains incomplete, just as is Science and Physicalism.

LOLing. Still doesn't preclude everything from science.

Only if you can prove science can investigate nothing will this claim be valid counter to whether science can prove the existence of god via investigating the actions it takes in this reality.

Prove science can't investigate anything, THEN you have something.

Oh, teabaggie, if you continue to proffer Ethan's words rather than stand on your own claims, they will be dismissed with "Appeal to authority fallacy" and thereby debunked.

Either make up and stand by your own claims (and support them, teabaggie, which is the entire reason why you keep this appeal to authority "argument" spamming: so that you can avoid supporting it, demanding I ask Ethan to prove his claim, when he's not a party to this argument), or your "points" will be discarded with the valid dismissal of "Appeal to authority fallacy, discarded".

You'll have to put up your own claims, not half-ass someone else's.

The world of the supernatural belongs with the realms of the religious to instill fear into the hearts of the believers. It is a purely fictional habitat used to control the masses. In other words, it can only exist in the mind of the believer, not in the physical world.

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cherry_picking)

Tough break there, eh?
LOL!

Yeah, that's the most probable (to an astronomically huge degree), but there's nothing that forbids science being able to investigate god claims,whether god exists or not.

And if those claims of god action DID come from a god, supernatural or not, that evidence still exists and is indicative of god.

As done loooong ago, the christian/jewish/muslim god has been disproven because we look at what god says they did (in the OT) and find that reality proves this did not occur.

If a global flood, 6000 year old earth, with humans arising almost immediately, and within a generation making iron tools and farming, that would be proof that the bible was at least accurate about reality.

Which would be strong proof it was correct in its claim of god's existence.

Alternatively, for christians alone, their god says that if there are three of them who ask, anything *ANY* *THING* they ask, even "prove to everyone you exist!" will be done.

Such a test could be EASILY set up.

And science would be able to test that this god really did exist by doing what it was said it would do.

EXACTLY like we would with ANY other phenomenon.

Say, for example, spacetime curvature. A non-physical claim of reality that made a prediction that was falsifiable, but was proven to actually apply.

There's nothing to indicate that gods are forbidden from this test.

Unless you're going to beg the question that eric states explicitly:

God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him. Do you think he did that on purpose, or was he simply unable to create a world where human scientific investigation could reach him?

Currently there is less evidence for this sort of universe existing than there is for god existing itself.

It would be EASIER to prove god exists than god created a universe where science would never be able to prove it exists.

@ #1058

You know, nothing like you claimed.

So another lie from you, teabaggie.

BUSTED!!!!

@ #1072
“Argument from authority fallacy. Fail!”

… chuckling …
Ethan has his doctorate in the subject material.

You, to be polite, do not
Ethan is an authority.
You to be polite, are not
No fallacy at all.
Ref E. Siegel “… Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we’re not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving ourselves of what we might have come to truly learn.” (http://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2017/01/20/can-science-prov…)

You’re wrong.
Ethan's right.

Ethan is an authority.

Argument from authority fallacy ,teabaggie. You really don't have to go right out and admit you're empty of proof and have to fall back on this tired fallacy so BLATANTLY.

You’re wrong.
Ethan’s right.

Argument from authority fallacy. Discarded.

@ #1078

"Contradiction in place of argument ..,"

No, I let you handle that. You do a fine job at it.

Ref E. Siegel for the facts, “The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.”

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No

Contradiction in place of argument, teabaggie?

BUSTED!!!!

Ref E. Siegel

Argument from authority fallacy, discarded.

Ethan is an authority.
You are mistaken.

Ethan is an authority.

But relying on him instead of your own arguments is an appeal to authority fallacy, so your arguments calling on him is discarded as a logical fallacy.

BUSTED!

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No

Contradiction in place of argument, teabaggie! Wrong again! BUSTED!

No fallacy here.

Contradiction in place of argument, teabaggie! Wrong again! BUSTED!

I'm pleased to read that you acknowledge that Ethan is an authority.

And you are not an authority.

You're wrong
He's right.

Ref E. Siegel

Appeal to authority fallacy, discarded.

And you are not an authority.

Non sequitur. Irrelevant and discarded.

You’re wrong
He’s right.

Appeal to authority fallacy, discarded, teabaggie!

BUSTED!

Particularly where Ethan explained

Appeal to authority fallacy, again, teabaggie.

Discarded!

"The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be"

Not, of course, that you will admit that true, as that will mean acknowledging you are wrong.

Just a reminder, you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, you have not yet done so.

@ #1091
... chuckling ... Discarding the facts again, eh?

Just a reminder, you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, you have not yet done so.

“The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be”

Not, of course, that you will admit that true

No, I accept it with the caveats I ascribed over in the thread. However, since it's irrelevant, it really doesn't matter. Since you're trying to apply the statement via "Ethan says so!", it is an appeal to authority fallacy, and is discarded.

Again, teabaggie.

Failed again, teabagger.

Just a reminder, you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, you have not yet done so.

So.... I've made the claim, bit I have not yet done so...?

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!

FAILED AGAIN, teabaggie!

@ #1085

Now that you acknowledge Ethan is an authority, why not relax and enjoy the Science he has on offer?

@ #1091
… chuckling … Discarding the facts again, eh?

Non sequitur and appeal to ridicule fallacy, teabagger!

FAILED AGAIN!

Now that you acknowledge

And now you acknowledge that your appeal to authority was a fallacy, you will be providing your own claims and proof of them.

Enjoy actual coherent and logical argument for the first time in this thread, teabaggie. You'll find it hard at first, but you may learn how to do it eventually.

@ #1094

" “The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be”
... I accept it with the caveats I ascribed over in the thread ..."

Then you're using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation,

“Ah, nope again!”
Back to contradiction rather than argument again. Pity.

Ah, so discarding the evidence against you, teabaggie?

Sad.

Then you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world

Irrelevant. The premise does not require 100% complete information about the natural world, teabaggie.

But you'll ignore this just like you ignored the inconvenient facts every single time I've told you this before, won't you?

Because you're not capable of comprehending truth when your creationist apologetics is on the line.

Sad.

@ #1097
"... your appeal to authority was a fallacy ..."

No appeal here, I pointed out that you are wrong.

Why reject the facts?

@ #1100
" "Then you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world"
Irrelevant. ..."

The facts are not irrelevant.
Wrong again.

@ #1100

"... you ignored the inconvenient facts every single time I’ve told you this before ..."

You still have not provided any evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

That's because you don't have any, do you?

No appeal here

Contradiction in place of argument again? Discarded.

The facts are not irrelevant.

Really? Then you're wrong because pi is an irrational number, teabaggie. Just like you are.

(btw, the "facts" you claimed are irrelevant, try some facts relevant to the case, retard)

You still have not provided any evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Yes I have:

Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones and those acts confirmed as proof and evidence of the existence of god, just like it would prove the existence of any natural actor in nature.

Just pointing out you are wrong AGAIN, teabaggie.

@ #1100
" ...Because you’re not capable of comprehending truth ..."

What evidence do you have to support this claim?

"... when your creationist apologetics is on the line."

What evidence do you have to support this claim?

Still waiting for your evidence that the above is insufficient proof, teabaggie. but you don't even have a claim, do you, only a refusal to accept.

Without reason.

Because your christian apologetics is not based in reason.

@ #1105
"Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones and those acts confirmed as proof and evidence of the existence of god, just like it would prove the existence of any natural actor in nature."

That's not evidence; that's a truth claim.

What evidence do you have to support this claim?

About 400 posts from you going "But where's your evidence (for a different claim)?", teabaggie.

What evidence do you have to support this claim?

Your confusion over the difference between god and the christian god, teabaggie. And your incomplete grasp of logic.

Just how many times do you need to be told this, teabaggie?

Alzheimers?

@ #1107
"... your christian apologetics is not based in reason."

No evidence to support the claim, eh?

That’s not evidence; that’s a truth claim.

No, it's a premise, teabaggie. It's part of a logical argument that leads to a conclusion.

Even if it's one your faith doesn't let you entertain seeing in the word.

No evidence to support the claim, eh?

As well as the evidence presented earlier, the additional fact that you don't refute the accusation byt go 'where's the evidence".

The tell of a liar is patently obvious, teabaggie.

@ #1109
"About 400 posts from you going “But where’s your evidence (for a different claim)?”..."

I didn't think you had evidence. That is corroboration.

@ #1112
"The tell of a liar is patently obvious ..."

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented. Read on ….

@ #708 you posted “#681
Posting so much bollocks you’re losing your place?”

This is in response to my post #701, “ “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
What post # was that?”
************************************************
As I had not made such a claim about Ethan, I thought it sensible to establish this fact.
And now we get to #681,
************************************************
“ “Proof please. This is YOUR claim. The burden of proof is on you”
Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B
Your tool is Science.
Ethan’s post shows that your tool is inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world.
Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world.
But you’ll just say that’s not true. “
************************************************
As we can all see, I did not claim @ #681 what you said @ #703 I claimed: “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
************************************************
You may have been mistaken at #703 (as you are prone to making unsubstantiated claims), but @ #708 and #710 you had reread my post in order to “correctly” identify the one you referred to.
************************************************
You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.

Congratulations! I’m sure you’re proud.
Everyone knows the difference between you and me.

It's well documented..

@ #1111
“… Even if it’s one your faith doesn’t let you entertain seeing in the word.”

No, you’re the one making Professions of Faith.
“… Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones and those acts confirmed as proof and evidence of the existence of god, just like it would prove the existence of any natural actor in nature …”

Remember that?

@ #1112
"The tell of a liar is patently obvious ..."

Yes it is. Yes indeed. We agree about that.

“About 400 posts from you going “But where’s your evidence (for a different claim)?”…”

I didn’t think you had evidence.

That is a non sequitur. The provision of evidence ("that which is seen") is evidence, not the lack of it, teabaggie.

No wonder you have so much trouble with reality.

We’ve already established that you are untrustworthy

1114 shows no such thing teabaggie. Blank assertion is discarded.

@ #1112
“The tell of a liar is patently obvious …”

Yes it is.

Your attempt to pretend that this is obversely the case is fallacious and childish, teabaggie.

Sad.

Meanwhile, teabaggie, here is the ever increasing list of your lies on this thread alone:

====
” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

1) So what?
2) Lie. Many people did.
3) You were one of them.

you love your lies, don’t you, teabaggie.

===
You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie.

Therefore you have lied.
===

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

Lie. Many people did. You were one of them.

===

#473 As I did not specify either, my criticism of the philosophical position required to support your position stands.

===

357:

” “As my opinion that Science cannot prove the existence of God passed without comment”

===
499:

“… Uh, we can *describe* it quite well. As a brain surgeon.”
You are mistaken

I used the word “mind” not “brain”.
The two are not the same.

It didn’t, though.”
It has so far.

===

If one defines Physicalism as the belief that the universe is only composed of everything known by physics, one can point out that physics cannot describe how the mind functions

===

Unlike some other commenters, I am cautious about what I claim is true.

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
===

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

===

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

===

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

===

“… you don’t get to refuse to defend your asinine claims …”

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

“I did not ask you to post false statements.”
===

“… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”

Both statements are accurate.

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.

(Note: "needs fleshing out" != "fails to describe" already pointed out)
===

That sounds like another of your Professions of Faith, O Man of Great Faith

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===
“Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
What post # was that?”

cf

...as you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)..

===

Now you’re defining how God must interact with the natural world

===
That is a Credo
===
While you are entitled to proselytize your Beliefs, this may not be the best forum for doing so.
===
Claims based on Faith, such as the one @ #870
===

There’s no need to get excited, old bean.

===

As you have been documented engaging in that activity,

===
“… the accusation stands proven.”
Yes, the accusation that you post false statement you know to be false does stand proven.
===

“… And it is poisoning the well, another fallacy.”
Documenting your posts @ #798 & #710 is not a fallacy.

===

“… “Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)?”

Is a formal fallacy: the generic fallacy.”

No, I don’t agree that Ethan’s post is a formal fallacy.

===

Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world.

===

I will admit that I prefer Reason to Faith.

===

I prefer Science to what you seem to practice.

===

Again, claims based on which admit of no possibility of error (ref here “right with or without evidence”) are assumptions – faith based, not reasoned ones

===

Science can prove the existence of God [the claim], the type of assertion you are making is not the type of assertion normally associated with Science. It is a Credo
===

Such Faith claims, like yours @ #870 are unassailable by reason.

===

They are, just as yours is, True-Because-You-Said-So, and all are expected to Believe them, and yours.

cf #546
cf "the Mind is natural, while not observed"
cf "You're lying teabaggie"
===

[John response @596] Then what can be known by Science is, in and of itself, insufficient to prove God exists.

Both statements are accurate “

Yes, that’s correct.

(what is under the elipsis...?)

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===

Yes, O Man of Great Faith, you do exhibit that behavior.

===

#1001: @990,....
(almost like 11 posts just don't exist,and with the eternal lying of the elipsis elision of what is being said. What was that "Quotemine": used to deceive and cover up a lie by falsifying the events)

===

plus the supernatural world in which your purported God exists.

===

++++

Coarse language and creating a hostile environment do not substitute for rational argument.

===

You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim, and you’re unlikely to do so.

===

I doubt that my comments make up even half those of this thread, much less the quantity of text posted.

===

In re #3: Me telling anyone what to do about #2 is not the point of this thread, but you knew that already.

===

have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God. Neither, for that matter has Ethan, and you also knew I have not claimed Ethan said it when you posted that falsehood.

===

Besides the absence of any scientific theory of the Mind, there is Physicalism‘s problems with Knowledge.

===

One believes without proof that God does not exist.

===

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

Each of asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position. Hasnain is the other side of a two-sided coin. They are both True Believers.

===

In re the last sentence: As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

“… so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him …”
I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

===

As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

Your proposition is foolish nonsense.

===

As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it

===

“… Except you think “god” means “the christian god” …”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

“You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”
You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

===

. I’m merely pointing out that you are mistaken

===

“… yes, science can prove the existence of god.”
Back to your Faith claim, I see.

===

As for Ethan’s opinion being irrelevant to the topic of his thread, “Can science prove the existence of God?” (20-JAN-17), he took the effort to assist the slow learners when he subsequently (10-FEB-17) posted

===

And now that you have finally discovered that there are, in fact, 8 occurrences of “supernatural” there,

===

LOL! Back to the contradiction in lieu of argument.

===

Ethan had his doctorate in the subject material.

===

You are mistaken. I have not done so.
cf

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”.

===

"What? Theology...?"
Wrong again

===

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No, I let you handle that.

===

We’ve already established that you are untrustworthy

Ethan has explained

Appeal to authority fallacy, discarded, teabaggie.

BUSTED!

While you sit there complaining about everyone else being a True Believer, you're here with the same mindset and proclamation insistence that Ken Ham did when asked "What would convince you you're wrong?"

He too insisted that this could never happen.

Meanwhile Bill Nye, the science guy, says "Evidence".

Your insistence that god cannot ever give proof of its existence is just as bind and religious an assertion as Ham works under.

Given your insistence that the science people must be listened to, you should be listening to him. And, oddly enough, to Ethan who says you are wrong:

John

I don’t agree with most of what you’re saying, philosophically, scientifically or logically.

Seems you only want to insist he's right due to his knowledge of astrophysics (and none about god) when others have to agree with YOUR claims.

Special pleading fallacy, teabaggie.

Not forgetting that neither 708 nor 710 are lies but conclusions rationally asserted from your ridiculous claims. You asserted Y was the interaction measured (which would be a god one) and I just insterted your definitions of A, B and C in your scenario, and drew the directly indicated conclusion that you were insisting that Ethan was saying god could not be detected.

Which you have later actually stated in black an white.

Yet still insist that they are lies.

You're really not tied into reality.

I guess that's what happens when an apologetic like yourself gets into an argument well outside your depth.

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented. Read on ….

@ #708 you posted “#681

“ “Proof please. This is YOUR claim. The burden of proof is on you”
Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Ethan has not posted that god could not be detected, and I have not said he has.

And you knew that before you posted it.

Therefore you have lied, and here is the list of them, teabaggie:

3) You were one of them.

You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie.

Therefore you have lied.

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

EVERYONE knows that.

EVEN YOU, teabaggie.

Feel free to argue with facts, “The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.”

Feel free to argue with facts,

I'm not arguing with them any more than you're arguing that pi is not an irrational number, teabaggie.

“The total amount of information...

Irrelevant.

Just because the decimal digits of pi aren't all known doesn't mean circles don't exist.

But your religious fanaticism for apologising for the faith of your christian friends has you blasting random shit continuously, teabaggie.

The limit to information or knowledge has no bearing on the question of whether science can prove god's existence.

A fact you don't even know you're arguing against, so blinded by hate and bigotry against someone who has proven your christian god does not exist.

“The total amount of information..."

Appeal to authority fallacy. Discarded, teabaggie.

PS: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proof_that_π_is_irrational

Your claim that I'm wrong is therefore BUSTED, teabaggie!

Don't argue with the facts, teabaggie, they're just the facts. I'm only pointing them out.

from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_manipulation

According to Braiker

Braiker identified the following ways that manipulators control their victims:[1]

Positive reinforcement: includes praise, superficial charm, superficial sympathy (crocodile tears), excessive apologizing, money, approval, gifts, attention, facial expressions such as a forced laugh or smile, and public recognition.
Negative reinforcement: involves removing one from a negative situation as a reward, e.g. "You won't have to do your homework if you allow me to do this to you."
Intermittent or partial reinforcement: Partial or intermittent negative reinforcement can create an effective climate of fear and doubt. Partial or intermittent positive reinforcement can encourage the victim to persist - for example in most forms of gambling, the gambler is likely to win now and again but still lose money overall.
Punishment: includes nagging, yelling, the silent treatment, intimidation, threats, swearing, emotional blackmail, the guilt trip, sulking, crying, and playing the victim.
Traumatic one-trial learning: using verbal abuse, explosive anger, or other intimidating behavior to establish dominance or superiority; even one incident of such behavior can condition or train victims to avoid upsetting, confronting or contradicting the manipulator.

BUSTED, teabaggie!

Science is a wonderful, but limited, discipline that teaches some of us about life, the world, and the universe. It has, however, not revealed why the universe came into existence nor, as noted elsewhere, what preceded Cosmic Inflation. Biological evolution has not brought us understanding of how abiogenesis, the origin of the first living organisms from inanimate matter, or how the advanced eukaryotic cells—the highly structured building blocks of advanced life forms—ever emerged from simpler organisms. Neither does it explain one of the continuing mysteries of science: how did consciousness? Where do symbolic thinking and self-awareness come from? What is it that allows humans to understand the mysteries of biology, physics, mathematics, engineering and medicine? Science is nowhere near to explaining these mysteries.

These limitations of Science being unable to explain all the natural world are examples of why Science is unable to explain what of what is beyond the natural world, the supernatural. The thread topic “Can science explain the existence of God?” presumes the supernatural by populating it with the supernatural entity God. Science is one way humans understand the natural world, and to enjoy and marvel at the life and infinite cosmos surrounding us. Humans use other disciplines to study other problems.

@ #1131
"“The total amount of information…”
Appeal to authority fallacy."

That the total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite is merely a fact.
A fact you cannot change.
A fact that shows why Science is unable to explain all the natural world, much less the supernatural world.
You remain mistaken.

Science is a wonderful, but limited,

These limitations of Science being unable to explain all the natural world are examples of why Science is unable to explain what of what is beyond the natural world, the supernatural

Ignoratio elenchi
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ignoratio elenchi, also known as irrelevant conclusion,[1] is the informal fallacy of presenting an argument that may or may not be logically valid, but fails nonetheless to address the issue in question. More colloquially, it is also known as missing the point.

Ignoratio elenchi falls into the broad class of relevance fallacies.[2] It is one of the fallacies identified by Aristotle in his Organon. In a broader sense he asserted that all fallacies are a form of ignoratio elenchi.[3][4]

Irrelevant, teabaggie.

Limits to science doesn't mean it can't explain god or prove its existence..

EVEN YOU refuse to claim so.

But you keep insisting it must be wrong to say otherwise, leaving only the fallacious and unsupported claim that science CANNOT prove the existence of god as the only option left, by a process of elimination.

BUSTED, teabaggie!

““The total amount of information…”
Appeal to authority fallacy.”

That the total amount of information...

Ignoratio elenchi again, teabaggie.

YOU quoted the words of another, therefore it is an appeal to authority fallacy to do so, whether their words are fact or not is irrelevant to the claim you were posting this in fake "rebuttal" to, teabaggie.

BUSTED!

"... YOU quoted the words of another, therefore it is an appeal to authority fallacy ..."

You are mistaken.
The is no appeal to any authority to state that the total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite.

That just happens to be a fact.
You're now denying facts.

“… YOU quoted the words of another...”

You are mistaken.

Another flat-out brazen lie, teabaggie. And we know what you think you're allowed to be when you're a flat-out lying asshole, right, teabaggie?

Yup, we sure do!

BUSTED!

That just happens to be a fact.
You’re now denying facts.

Another flat-out lie, tebaggie.

BUSTED.

The is no appeal to any authority to state that the total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite.

Strawman fallacy, tebaggie. Dismissed.

...You are mistaken....

Incorrect. Pi is an irrational number, yet circles exist, and you sit there denying these facts merely because it's me pointing them out. When they prove your claims are incorrect!

BUSTED!

You are mistaken.

Incorrect. Pi is an irrational number, yet circles still exist, and you ignore these facts merely because it's me saying them, when they prove your claims are wrong.

BUSTED!

" ...Limits to science doesn’t mean it can’t explain god or prove its existence ..."

... chucking ... Now you're claiming that Science can also explain God. You are amusing.

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist, admit to any number of unmeasured interactions.

Those unmeasured interactions demonstrate that Science cannot completely describe the natural world, much less the supernatural one. From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity, God. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

Ethan has not posted that god could not be detected

I know. Still. But you keep pretending that he has, teabaggie.

and I have not said he has.

But you still insist on posting it as if he somehow proves that science can't detect or prove god's existence.

That, therefore, is a lie, tebaaggie.

Another one to add to the massive pile of bullshit lies you've spouted.

BUSTED!

Now you’re claiming that Science can also explain God.

And now a lie by omission, teabaggie.

Piling up those lies there!

BUSTED!

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,

Ingornati elenchi, a logical fallacy, teabagger. And therefore, a lie you knew was a lie before you even posted it.

BUSTED!

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,

So, prove that claim, teabaggie.

Teabaggie, your claims are unsupported because you've spent 400+ posts avoiding admitting any claim or insisting that the claims you're making aren't made.

Yet you have to presume

1) Axiomatically, god does exist, else the question is meaningless.
2) That there is a supernatural
3) That god is supernatural
4) That an incomplete statement of nature means a complete lack of knowledge of the supernatural
5) That god can only act supernaturally
6) God cannot act on the natural or change it in any way

But you haven't shown #2 or #3.

#4 is an assertion arising out of nothing. Nature is, by definition not natural, therefore a claim about nature cannot be asserted as applying to supernature

#5 is a limitation of god that the definition you adhere to precludes

#6 means that god could not create all of reality, that requiring an action ON reality, and is another claim excluded by your definition of god.

So even though 2-4 remain unsupported assertions, precluding a definitive statement like "cannot", 5&6 refute your logic and render it invalid in toto.

BUSTED, teabaggie.

"... "From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,"

So, prove that claim ..."

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A (the natural world) will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B (the natural world and the supernatural world).

QED

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A ...

Still ignoranti elenchi and invalid logic.

That statement, even if taken as true, does not necessarily mean that god cannot be proven to exist by science. Such a god could appear physically. A simple task for an omnipotent being.

So, again, teabaggie, instead of arguing about something completely orthogonal to the claim, argue that science CANNOT prove the existence of god.

Because at the moment, the fact is that you have failed to do so and your claim is BUSTED.

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A (the natural world) will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B (the natural world and the supernatural world).

Prove that all measurements of A+B are needed to prove god's existence, teabaggie.

If you can't, then your claim is BUSTED.

@ #1152
"Prove that all measurements of A+B are needed to prove god’s existence ...

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist, admit to any number of unmeasured interactions.

Those unmeasured interactions demonstrate that Science cannot completely describe the natural world and the supernatural one, of which the God of Ethan's topic title "Can Science prove the existence of God". This shows that the absence of measurements can be due to the limits of Science.

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity, God. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

Provide some scientific evidence for the existence of God.

Not that you'll ever be able to do so, but hey, give it your best shot.

Remember that you made the claim the Science can prove the existence of God. So far you failed to provide any evidence to support your claim.

will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B

But since B can only add to the count of A, your claim is meaningless, since it is true whether all of B is known or knowable, because A would still be less than completely known.

this is YET ANOTHER lie by you, teabaggie, and one you should have known when you said it.

@ #1152
“Prove that all measurements of A+B are needed to prove god’s existence …

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist, admit to any number of unmeasured interactions.

Irrelevant again.

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity, God.

And a complete lie. It does not follow.

Science can investigate most, if not all, things in nature. Therefore it can investigate supernatural claims. It follows that science can prove the existence of a supernatural entity, God

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

a supernatural entity, God (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

And another lie from you, teabaggie. You haven't shown, and that link does not show, that god is necessarily supernatural.

A fact you knew and deny still.

Provide some scientific evidence for the existence of God.

Provide some evidence god cannot be proven.

Not that you’ll ever be able to do so, but hey, give it your best shot.

Remember that you made the claim the Science cannot prove the existence of God. So far you failed to provide any evidence to support your claim.

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist

A lie. And one you knew about when you said it, teabaggie.

BUSTED.

Moreover, it doesn't claim what you rely on it claiming when you parrot it for your "evidence" here, proving you do not understand what Ethan was saying at all.

BUSTED TWICE!

“Prove that all measurements of A+B are needed to prove god’s existence …

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist, admit to any number of unmeasured interactions.

they also admit to any number of measured interactions, and preclude no future interactions being measured.

It therefore follows that your claim that science cannot prove the existence of god is not supported by an incomplete scientific measurement set.

Busted again, teabaggie.

@ #1160
"they also admit to any number of measured interactions, and preclude no future interactions being measured. ...

Cool! Where's the evidence to support or corroborate your hypothesis?

Do you have ant to show?

@ #1158
“Provide some evidence god cannot be proven …”
Remember that you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, not me. The burden of proof lies on you, not me.

Now, about that scientific evidence, do you have any to show?

Are you saying that there are no limits to Science?

Are you saying you can't read, dumbass???

Cool! Where’s the evidence to support or corroborate your hypothesis?

Uh, examples like:

micro.magnet.fsu.edu/electromag/java/faraday2/

That shows that we can investigate things in this universe with science.

Or this one

phys.org/news/2016-02-ligo.html

Also showing we can use science to investigate things.

You having problems with the existence of science altogether, teabaggie?!?!

Care to provide some evidence god's existence cannot be proven, teabaggie?

Nowt from you so far.

Science cannot prove the existence of God

Remember that you made the claim that science cannot prove the existence of god, not me. The burden of proof lies on you, not me.

Remember, teabaggie, all you have is

P1) Science isn't able to measure everything in the universe

C) Science cannot prove the existence of god.

But C does not follow from P1.

@ #1157
“… You haven’t shown, and that link does not show, that god is necessarily supernatural.”

LOL! Even by your standards that’s foolish. Now you’re suggesting that God is not supernatural. Still, if you could show that to be true (not, of course that you’ll be able to do that either), it would enable you so prove the existence of such an entity. I suppose if one defines the attributes of a deity to be limited to those testable by the tools available to Science, then such a straw man would, unsurprisingly, be knocked down and disposed of. Such sophomoric behavior will always satisfy some.

Here’s a quote from the reference, “In this view, questions of the supernatural, such as those relating to the existence and nature of God, are non-empirical and are the proper domain of theology”

Further, there are 8 occurrences of “supernatural” in the reference.

Finally, if you follow the hyperlink of the first instance of “supernatural” you’ll read this, ” The supernatural (Medieval Latin: supernātūrālis: supra "above" + naturalis "natural", first used: 1520–1530 AD) includes all that cannot be explained by science or the laws of nature, including things characteristic of or relating to ghosts, gods, or other supernatural beings, or to things beyond nature.”

You never fail to entertain!

"Science cannot prove the existence of God"

Yep. Me and everyone else. That's due primarily to the limits of Science preventing it from providing evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

Do you have any evidence to support your claim?

Now you’re suggesting that God is not supernatural.

I'm saying that "supernatural" has not been proven to exist. And after that you still have to prove that god is supernatural. The definition of god doesn't include supernatural from the WP link to what most or many theologians consider the attributes of "god".

You've had this pointed out to you for, what 200 posts, and you're only just reading it, teabaggie??!?!?

Still, if you could show that to be true

Waiting for you to show that there is a supernatural. Then prove that god is one. Why do I have to prove your conjecture wrong when you have nothing but ass-pull to support it?

Here’s a quote from the reference

Irrelevant. The definition you wanted to hold to was the one held by most theologians. Which does not contain "supernatural" as an attribute:

In monotheism, God is conceived of as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith.[3] The concept of God as described by most theologians includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), divine simplicity, and as having an eternal and necessary existence. Many theologians also describe God as being omnibenevolent (perfectly good) and all loving

So not "god is supernatural", and we can even drop "omnibenevolent" too.

Further, there are 8 occurrences of “supernatural” in the reference.

Not in the definition used by most theologians.

includes all that cannot be explained by science or the laws of nature,

Which is why you have to show that god is supernatural, otherwise it becomes invalid because it's circular reasoning, teabaggie.

And all that is necessary for god to be proven to exist is for it to produce a miracle.

The source may be "supernatural", but the result of the miracle is real and 100% within the purview of science.

That's how we proved your god doesn't exist: no world flood 5000 ish years ago.

Sorry, teabaggie, you're BUSTED.

@ #1165
“Care to provide some evidence god’s existence cannot be proven …”

Remember that you made the claim that Science can prove the existence of God, not me. The burden of proof lies on you, not me.

Now, about that scientific evidence, do you have any to show?

“Science cannot prove the existence of God”

Yep. Me and everyone else

Nope, science can prove you exist And everyone else. Only solipsists disagree.

And only you (eventually, after multiple insistence's of disclaiming ANY claim made whatsoever) have said it cannot be proven by science.

The only way that can be known to be the case is if you know god doesn't exist.

Busted again, teabaggie.

“Science cannot prove the existence of God”

Yep. Me and everyone else

Also look up "argumentum ad populum", teabaggie.It's a logical fallacy.

BUSTED!

@ #1170
From your cherry-picked quote
“… omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere) …”
This is followed by “So not “god is supernatural …”
Now you’re suggesting that an omniscient, omnipotent entity that is omnipresent is not supernatural, even that no natural entities have those properties.
It appears that you have as firm a grasp on theology as you do on Science.

@ #1165
“Care to provide some evidence god’s existence cannot be proven …”

Remember that

you made the claim that science cannot prove god's existence, not me. So the burden of proof is on you, teabaggie, not me.

I've already shown my proof, and you've been unable to find any logical reason why the conclusion or premise is wrong, except by insistence it is.

You COULD try proving either the premise is wrong or the conclusion does not arise inductively, but you've not manged that in 800+ posts of incompetence and incoherence.

So prove your claim instead. But you've not managed THAT in 200+ posts either.

From your cherry-picked quote

In monotheism, God is conceived of as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith.[3] The concept of God as described by most theologians includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), divine simplicity, and as having an eternal and necessary existence. Many theologians also describe God as being omnibenevolent (perfectly good) and all loving

does not contain "supernatural", teabaggie.

Are you misattributing a quote and lying AGAIN, teabaggie???

Yes indeed! No one except you believes that Science can prove the existence of God.

Particularly as you can provide no evidence to support your claim.

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented. Read on ….

@ #708 you posted “#681

This is in response to my post #701, “ “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”

************************************************
As I had not made such a claim about Ethan, I thought it sensible to establish this fact.
And now we get to #681,
************************************************
“ “Proof please. This is YOUR claim. The burden of proof is on you”
Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B
Your tool is Science.
Ethan’s post shows that your tool is inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world.
Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world.
But you’ll just say that’s not true. “
************************************************
As we can all see, I did not claim @ #681 what you said @ #703 I claimed: “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”

You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

If one defines Physicalism as the belief that the universe is only composed of everything known by physics, one can point out that physics cannot describe how the mind functions

Unlike some other commenters, I am cautious about what I claim is true.

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
===

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

===

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

===

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

===

“… you don’t get to refuse to defend your asinine claims …”

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

“I did not ask you to post false statements.”
===

“… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”

Both statements are accurate.

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.

(Note: "needs fleshing out" != "fails to describe" already pointed out)
===

That sounds like another of your Professions of Faith, O Man of Great Faith

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

“… And it is poisoning the well, another fallacy.”
Documenting your posts @ #798 & #710 is not a fallacy.

===

“… “Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)?”

Is a formal fallacy: the generic fallacy.”

No, I don’t agree that Ethan’s post is a formal fallacy.

===

Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world.

===

I will admit that I prefer Reason to Faith.

===

I prefer Science to what you seem to practice.

===

Again, claims based on which admit of no possibility of error (ref here “right with or without evidence”) are assumptions – faith based, not reasoned ones

===

Science can prove the existence of God [the claim], the type of assertion you are making is not the type of assertion normally associated with Science. It is a Credo
===

Such Faith claims, like yours @ #870 are unassailable by reason.

They are, just as yours is, True-Because-You-Said-So, and all are expected to Believe them, and yours.

(http://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2017/02/10/why-science-will…)

PJ, the axiom of the question is that god does exist. Without that axiom, the question is meaningless.

That gods are the brain malfunctions of humans personifying their internal monologue as some "other" is true, but not relevant to the question as stated, where it has to be assumed that god does exist.

It's like "assuming that there are three dimensions to space" in a physics question. Even if you insist there are more dimensions IRL, the axiom for the problem is that there are only three.

So not only do you post false statements you know are false when you post them, you also deny the reality of the limits to Science.

With a back ground like that, it’s no wonder that you believe that Science can prove the existence of God.

Just keep in mind that until you provide some scientific evidence for the existence of God, no one except you will believe you.

As you have been documented at #708 & #710

They're not false statements, teabaggie. You are mistaken, and wantonly so.

Moreover, they are an ad hom and merely cement your inability to support any of your claims by logical and coherent argument.

BUSTED.

Just keep in mind that until you provide some scientific evidence for the existence of God,

Remember, the question of the thread is "Can science prove the existence of god", not "Can you prove the existence of god", so this is yet another cast of the same stale read herring argument that is the best you can supply.

Until you prove that science cannot prove the existence of god, nobody has to believe you, teabaggie.

BUSTED!

Of course, as the limits to Science preclude that tool from providing a complete description of reality, the measurements you need for scientific proof could be anywhere, but they’re all just beyond your reach.

So not only do you post false statements you know are false when you post them, you also deny the reality of the limits to Science.

You also spew red herrings, false assertions, ad homs and blatant lies that are so long they're practically uncountable.

BUSTED, teabaggie.

Of course, as the limits to Science preclude that tool from providing a complete description of reality

P1) Science cannot measure everything in the universe

But that is all you have.

It does not follow that science cannot prove the existence of god.

BUSTED,teabaggie!

But then again, at least while you’re wasting your time trying to provide scientific evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God, , you’re not posting statements you know are false before you post them, as you did @ #708 & #710.

But then again...

Red herring still, teabaggie. The question is not prove the existence of god.

Go to your local adult education center and sign up stat.

as you did @ #708 & #710.

They are not falshoods, and insisting so is another of your lies, teabaggie, along with the scores of others I have listed above.

BAD BOY, teabaggie.

@ #1181
“ “… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”
Both statements are accurate “
Yes, that’s correct.
Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.
As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

"One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”
Yes, that’s correct.

Indeed. At least one is a lie, teabaggie.

Just pointing out the facts.

@ #1195
"The question is not prove the existence of god ..."

Yes. The question is "Can science prove the existence of God?"

You claim it can do so.

Do you have any evidence to back up your claim?

@ #1198
"... At least one is a lie ..."

Both are true, even though you intentionally misquoted my post.
You remain mistaken.

You claim it can do so.

Yes, based on the simple premise that god can act in this reality, and such actions mean that science can prove the existence of god.

Duh.

That's 1200 posts later after I wrote it and you're STILL asking for evidence?!?!?!

What a religious lunatic you are, teabaggie.

“… At least one is a lie …”

Both are true,

No, one at least is a lie, both cannot be true at the same time, teabaggie.

even though you intentionally misquoted my post.

You remain mistaken, teabaggie.

So about the evidence you have not provided to back up your claim, when will you produce some scientific evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God?

We've been waiting, and you haven't delivered the goods.

@ #1202
"Yes, based on the simple premise that god can act in this reality, and such actions mean that science can prove the existence of god."

Where is the evidence to support your claim?

So about the evidence you have not provided

Since the question is not "prove the existence of god", your petulant repeats of this will be dismissed with "Red herring, dismissed".

We’ve been waiting,

Yes, we have. Waiting for you to show why science cannot prove the existence of god.

So far all you've managed is incoherence and ravings, teabaggie.

Care to try something that at least appears to come from a late period hominid brain?

Where is the evidence to support your claim?

The definition of god, dumbass.

Teabaggie, still waiting for your proof that science cannot prove the existence of god.

Remember you made that claim, and the burden of proof is on you, not me.

@ #1170
From your cherry-picked quote
“… omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere) …”
This is followed by “So not “god is supernatural …”

You’re suggesting that an omniscient, omnipotent entity that is omnipresent is not supernatural, even that no natural entities have those properties.

You seem to have as firm a grasp on theology as you do on Science.

@ #1207
“ “Where is the evidence to support your claim?”
The definition of god, dumbass. “

So the definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

What an amusing way to admit that you have no evidence to support your claim.

Just a reminder that of what you already know: :Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we’re not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving ourselves of what we might have come to truly learn.”

"... Since the question is not “prove the existence of god”, your petulant repeats of this will be dismissed with “Red herring, dismissed” ..."

LOL! Dismissing the observation that you have failed to provide evidence to support your claim is the same denial of reality as denying all the facts that have been rubbed into your face.

This is great, as all the other members of SWAB have been watching me expose your nonsense over and over in this thread.

Because you don't have what it takes to admit you've made a mistake, I can do this to you for as long as Ethan keep this thread open. Even after he closes the thread I'll be able to point people back here whenever you trot out more foolishness.

You’re suggesting that an omniscient, omnipotent entity that is omnipresent is not supernatural, even that no natural entities have those properties.

Post evidence that no supernatural entity has those properties, teabaggie. What an amusing way to admit that you have no evidence to support your claim.

PS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kardashev_scale

So the definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Lie again, teabaggie.

Even you admit that there are god actions that can be discovered. Everyone who believes in miracles (most of the religious) think that happens. Most scientists admit that they would be convinced they were wrong if it happened.

The only one insisting that there is nothing that would convince them they are wrong are you and Ken Ham, both True Believers on the two sides of the debate.

Just a reminder that of what you already know:

Appeal to authority fallacy, dismissed.

I KNOW that is your One True Faith credo, teabaggie, but that doesn't make it logical or real, any more than the Ark being built in the USA makes the flood story true.

Adamantine faith like yours does not make reality, teabaggie. Not even if you type it really hard.

If god has any effect on this reality, it can be found by scientific inquiry, and therefore it can be used to prove god exists.

That happens because the definition of god includes omnipotence.

Teabaggie will not understand logic and run off at a tangent AGAIN.

Since you worship at the idea of others being smarter than you, teabaggie, and also to prove your claim that "everyone" believes science can't prove the existence of god, try arguing with Richard Dawkins:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/richard-dawkins/why-there-almost-certainl…

This sounds terrific, right up until you give it a moment’s thought. You then realize that the presence of a creative deity in the universe is clearly a scientific hypothesis. Indeed, it is hard to imagine a more momentous hypothesis in all of science. A universe with a god would be a completely different kind of universe from one without, and it would be a scientific difference. God could clinch the matter in his favour at any moment by staging a spectacular demonstration of his powers, one that would satisfy the exacting standards of science. Even the infamous Templeton Foundation recognized that God is a scientific hypothesis - by funding double-blind trials to test whether remote prayer would speed the recovery of heart patients. It didn’t, of course, although a control group who knew they had been prayed for tended to get worse (how about a class action suit against the Templeton Foundation?) Despite such well-financed efforts, no evidence for God’s existence has yet appeared.

Since you do not know what "appeal to authority" is, nor feel constricted to only prattle what YOU know to stand up without the primature of some authority behind it to pretend to be comprehensive and proven (which is why even a valid authority can be an appeal to authority: you may misrepresent the words, as you do for Ethan every time you prattle his quote here), this is not an appeal to authority, but

1) Proof that you are wrong that "everyone else" thinks science can't prove god
2) YOUR level of "proof", whether it is valid logically or not

BUSTED, teabaggie!

@ #1215
“If god has any effect on this reality, it can be found by scientific inquiry, and therefore it can be used to prove god exists.
That happens because the definition of god includes omnipotence …”

You have just stated that Science can prove the existence of God due to the fact that God can interact in a way with the natural world that cannot be detected by Science (as God is, by the definition you used is omnipotent – having unlimited power [https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/omnipotent]).

Self-contradiction.
Wrong again.
No news there.

@ #1214
Another reference to what you already know and cannot admit, “Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we’re not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving ourselves of what we might have come to truly learn.” (E. Siegel, Forbes, “Can Science Prove The Existence Of God?”, 20-JAN-2017, http://www.forbes.com/sites/startswithabang/2017/01/20/can-science-prov… )

From your quote from your reference “… Despite such well-financed efforts, no evidence for God’s existence has yet appeared.”

Thereby proving that it could, but so far hasn't.

What a lying sack of crap you are teabaggie.

And, given your credo is that science can neither prove nor disprove god, given that this apparently disproves god, your credo is BUSTED!

Yet another authority who believes Science cannot prove the existence of God.

Another lie.

From your quote from your reference
Thereby proving your whine about "cherry picked quote" was self-serving tripe, teabaggie.

You sure are piling up the bullshit and lies today, teabaggie!

BUSTED!

“Science can never prove

Appeal to authority fallacy again, teabaggie.

BUSTED!

You have just stated that Science can prove the existence of God due to the fact that God can interact in a way with the natural world that can be detected by Science (as God is, by the definition you used is omnipotent – having unlimited power

Correct. It's not a contradiction.

That you had to lie shows how you KNOW you have no leg to stand on in your fundamentalist approach to christian apologetics, teabaggie.

Only you have posted that.
Go back and look.
Wrong again.

What’s even more entertaining is that you must have them [“god actions that can be discovered”] in order for Science to be able to prove the existence of God.

It appears you won’t be providing any evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Not, of course, that you ever were going to be able to do so.

Fail again.

People who are in denial are the type of people who provide reference to others while dismissing others’ references.

It is proof you lied when you claimed everyone else disagrees with me.

Richard Dawkins is someone else. He thinks it can be provef.

FAIL!

It is also indicative that you will insist still on using the quotes of others even after you've been told scores of times not to, that you will have no compunction about discarding quotes of others against you.

You do not hold yourself to the same standard as you demand of others, yet insist on continuing to do so.

Or will you stop quoting others as "support" for your insane dribblings to help your christian friends with apologetics?

BUSTED, teabaggie!

@ #1207

BUSTED!

Can you prove that science cannot detect any god actions, teabaggie?

No?

You haven't managed for over 1000 posts, because you cannot do so, but cling to your credo and faith without regard for truth or reality.

BUSTED, teabaggie!

There is no limit to science as to what scientific hyppothesis it can investigate and prove or disprove, and that includes the hypothesis of god's actions being the cause of things in this reality.

When god was supposed to be causing lightning, that was a scientific hypothesis. And if it had been god's work, science would have proven god's existence.

Proof that science can prove gods existence.

All you have is your faith-based credo that science is not allowed to prove (or disprove - this is the real issue you have with the question, teabaggie: it can also disprove your god) the existence of god.

BUSTED!

As Ethan posted in “Comments of the Week #148: From the Dipole Repeller to the limits of Science”,
“All of this is true:
Even if every particle in existence was known and measured to an arbitrary accuracy, much about the past and future would still be unknowable.
Even if everything about our observable Universe’s past and future were known, there is still the unobservable Universe which goes beyond our own.
And even if we knew all about the unobservable Universe, there’s still a region of time — before the Big Bang — that contains information that is unknowable, and appears irrelevant for all the things we can observe.
That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth investigating or theorizing about, but it does mean that there are both inherent uncertainties (when an electron and positron annihilate, which direction will their photons go off in?) and inherent unknowns (beyond the causal horizon? before anything impacting our Universe today was around?) that limit what we can ever know.”
A reference you should be aware of (http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/2017/02/12/comments-of-the-week…)

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

As Ethan posted in ““The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.””
A reference you should be aware of (http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/2017/02/12/comments-of-the-week…)

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

And all you can do about all those points is complain that there are so many of them, teabaggie, unable to actually show why they are not valid and support instead the idea that science is not allowed to prove god's existence.

BUSTED!

As Ethan posted in

Red herring, fallacious argument does not support your claim.

BUSTED!

@ #1238
“There is no limit to science as to what scientific hyppothesis it can investigate and prove or disprove, and that includes the hypothesis of god’s actions being the cause of things in this reality …”
You are now claiming that Science, which is unable to completely describe the natural world, will be able to describe the supernatural word.

You are mistaken.
Again.

As Dawkins said:

Accepting, then, that the God Hypothesis is a proper scientific hypothesis whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence

being a scientific hypothesis, science can prove it right or wrong.

Failed again, teabaggie!

The fine tuning argument is also a scientific test of the existence of god, teabaggie.

FAIL!

A global world wide flood 5000 years ago is a scientific hypothesis that would prove the existence of god.

Yet more proof that science can prove (or disprove - your specific problem here) the existence of god.

You just don't want god excluded, that#s all teabaggie. All your whining about other faithiests is just a smokescreen.

BUSTED!

@ #1244

From your post ....

Dawkins said "... whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence"

So where is the evidence to support your claim?
You still have none

Even your references show why you are
Wrong again

Nobody other than apologetics insist that science cannot prove or disprove god's existence.

Your christian apologetics credo is plain for all to see, teabaggie.

My evidence is in the link given, teabaggie.

Where's your evidence that god is unprovable by science?

You haven't got any.

Oh, and for all those lies about what I'm claiming, you are mistaken. Go look through the thread and you'll not find me saying that.

FAIL!

Accepting, then, that the God Hypothesis is a proper scientific hypothesis whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence

being a scientific hypothesis, science can prove it right or wrong.

Lying again, teabaggie!

But your christian apologetics won't let you accept this, but can't supply you with a counter other than further lies and distractions via red herring demands.

@ #1250
"Lying again ,,,"

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented. Read on ….

@ #708 you posted “#681
Posting so much bollocks you’re losing your place?”

This is in response to my post #701, “ “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
What post # was that?”
************************************************
As I had not made such a claim about Ethan, I thought it sensible to establish this fact.
And now we get to #681,
************************************************
“ “Proof please. This is YOUR claim. The burden of proof is on you”
Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B
Your tool is Science.
Ethan’s post shows that your tool is inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world.
Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world.
But you’ll just say that’s not true. “
************************************************
As we can all see, I did not claim @ #681 what you said @ #703 I claimed: “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
************************************************
You may have been mistaken at #703 (as you are prone to making unsubstantiated claims), but @ #708 and #710 you had reread my post in order to “correctly” identify the one you referred to.
************************************************
You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.

Congratulations! I’m sure you’re proud of yourself

You can't even manage to explain away your first lie teabaggie, never mind the others in the list:

++++

Coarse language and creating a hostile environment do not substitute for rational argument.

===

You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim, and you’re unlikely to do so.

===

I doubt that my comments make up even half those of this thread, much less the quantity of text posted.

===

In re #3: Me telling anyone what to do about #2 is not the point of this thread, but you knew that already.

===

have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God. Neither, for that matter has Ethan, and you also knew I have not claimed Ethan said it when you posted that falsehood.

===

Besides the absence of any scientific theory of the Mind, there is Physicalism‘s problems with Knowledge.

===

One believes without proof that God does not exist.

===

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

Each of asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position. Hasnain is the other side of a two-sided coin. They are both True Believers.

===

In re the last sentence: As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

“… so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him …”
I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

===

As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

Your proposition is foolish nonsense.

===

As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it

===

“… Except you think “god” means “the christian god” …”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

“You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”
You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

===

. I’m merely pointing out that you are mistaken

===

“… yes, science can prove the existence of god.”
Back to your Faith claim, I see.

===

As for Ethan’s opinion being irrelevant to the topic of his thread, “Can science prove the existence of God?” (20-JAN-17), he took the effort to assist the slow learners when he subsequently (10-FEB-17) posted

===

And now that you have finally discovered that there are, in fact, 8 occurrences of “supernatural” there,

===

LOL! Back to the contradiction in lieu of argument.

===

Ethan had his doctorate in the subject material.

===

You are mistaken. I have not done so.
cf

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”.

===

"What? Theology...?"
Wrong again

===

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No, I let you handle that.

===

We’ve already established that you are untrustworthy

===

It’s well documented..

The facts are there whether you admit them or not

Everyone knows about your posting false statement you knew were false when you posted them.

===

““The total amount of information…”
Appeal to authority fallacy.”

That the total amount of information…

===

“… YOU quoted the words of another, therefore it is an appeal to authority fallacy …”

You are mistaken.

===

That just happens to be a fact.
You’re now denying facts

===

Ethan has not posted that god could not be detected, and I have not said he has.

===

Now you’re claiming that Science can also explain God.

===

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,

===

“… “From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,”

So, prove that claim …”

A tool (Science)...

===

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A (the natural world) will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B (the natural world and the supernatural world).

===

a supernatural entity, God (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

===

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist

===

Are you saying that there are no limits to Science?

===

“Science cannot prove the existence of God”

Yep. Me and everyone else

===

So the definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

===

This is great, as all the other members of SWAB have been watching me expose your nonsense over and over in this thread.

===

Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God

===

Yet another authority who believes Science cannot prove the existence of God.

===

From your quote from your reference

cf "your cherry pick quote"

===

You have just stated that Science can prove the existence of God due to the fact that God can[not - a lie interjected here] interact in a way with the natural world that can be detected by Science (as God is, by the definition you used is omnipotent – having unlimited power [https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/omnipotent]).

Self-contradiction.

===

People who are in denial are the type of people who provide reference to others while dismissing others’ references.

===

The definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Way to go!

cf "god is supernatural, as defined (by me), ergo science can't prove it"

===

“Even you admit that there are god actions that can be discovered …”
Only you have posted that.
Go back and look.
Wrong again.

cf when told "you're saying that no god actions are discoverable", "I've never said that".

===

You are now claiming that Science, which is unable to completely describe the natural world, will be able to describe the supernatural word.

===

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

===

Even your references show why you are

===

Dawkins said “… whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence”

So where is the evidence to support your claim?

===

So, teabaggie, where's your answer to any of these lies?
” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

1) So what?
2) Lie. Many people did.
3) You were one of them.

you love your lies, don’t you, teabaggie.

===
You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie.

Therefore you have lied.
===

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

Lie. Many people did. You were one of them.

===

#473 As I did not specify either, my criticism of the philosophical position required to support your position stands.

===

357:

” “As my opinion that Science cannot prove the existence of God passed without comment”

===
499:

“… Uh, we can *describe* it quite well. As a brain surgeon.”
You are mistaken

I used the word “mind” not “brain”.
The two are not the same.

It didn’t, though.”
It has so far.

===

If one defines Physicalism as the belief that the universe is only composed of everything known by physics, one can point out that physics cannot describe how the mind functions

===

Unlike some other commenters, I am cautious about what I claim is true.

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
===

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

===

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

===

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

===

“… you don’t get to refuse to defend your asinine claims …”

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

“I did not ask you to post false statements.”
===

“… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”

Both statements are accurate.

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.

One of the differences between you and me is that I can – and have – provided evidence to support and corroborate my claim that you post false statements you know are false when you post them.

You have not yet provided any evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God. If coarse language were able to fill in, or substitute, for evidence, you’d be arguing from a position of strength.

But, of course, they are not, and you have not, to date, provided the evidence you need to support and corroborate your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim, and you’re unlikely to do so.

have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God. Neither, for that matter has Ethan, and you also knew I have not claimed Ethan said it when you posted that falsehood.

Besides the absence of any scientific theory of the Mind, there is Physicalism‘s problems with Knowledge.

One believes without proof that God does not exist.

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

Each of asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position. Hasnain is the other side of a two-sided coin. They are both True Believers.

I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

“… yes, science can prove the existence of god.”
Back to your Faith claim, I see.

===

As for Ethan’s opinion being irrelevant to the topic of his thread, “Can science prove the existence of God?” (20-JAN-17), he took the effort to assist the slow learners when he subsequently (10-FEB-17) posted

===

And now that you have finally discovered that there are, in fact, 8 occurrences of “supernatural” there,

===

LOL! Back to the contradiction in lieu of argument.

===

Ethan had his doctorate in the subject material.

===

You are mistaken. I have not done so.
cf

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”.

===

“What? Theology…?”
Wrong again

===

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No, I let you handle that.

===

We’ve already established that you are untrustworthy

===

It’s well documented..

The facts are there whether you admit them or not

Everyone knows about your posting false statement you knew were false when you posted them.

===

““The total amount of information…”
Appeal to authority fallacy.”

That the total amount of information…

===

“… YOU quoted the words of another, therefore it is an appeal to authority fallacy …”

You are mistaken.

===

That just happens to be a fact.
You’re now denying facts

===

Ethan has not posted that god could not be detected, and I have not said he has.

===

Now you’re claiming that Science can also explain God.

===

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,

===

“… “From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,”

So, prove that claim …”

A tool (Science)…

===

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A (the natural world) will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B (the natural world and the supernatural world).

===

a supernatural entity, God (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

===

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist

===

Are you saying that there are no limits to Science?

===

“Science cannot prove the existence of God”

Yep. Me and everyone else

===

So the definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

===

This is great, as all the other members of SWAB have been watching me expose your nonsense over and over in this thread.

===

Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God

===

Yet another authority who believes Science cannot prove the existence of God.

===

From your quote from your reference

cf “your cherry pick quote”

===

You have just stated that Science can prove the existence of God due to the fact that God can[not – a lie interjected here] interact in a way with the natural world that can be detected by Science (as God is, by the definition you used is omnipotent – having unlimited power [https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/omnipotent]).

Self-contradiction.

===

People who are in denial are the type of people who provide reference to others while dismissing others’ references.

===

The definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Way to go!

cf “god is supernatural, as defined (by me), ergo science can’t prove it”

===

“Even you admit that there are god actions that can be discovered …”
Only you have posted that.
Go back and look.
Wrong again.

cf when told “you’re saying that no god actions are discoverable”, “I’ve never said that”.

===

You are now claiming that Science, which is unable to completely describe the natural world, will be able to describe the supernatural word.

===

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

===

Even your references show why you are

===

Dawkins said “… whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence”

So where is the evidence to support your claim?

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.

Congratulations! I’m sure you’re proud of yourself

===

"Without evidence?"

What without? Given plenty of proof, christian retardo extremis!

This, though, is yet more lies from you.

Acts by god in this reality can prove the existence of god because those acts can be discoverable ones and those acts confirmed as proof and evidence of the existence of god, just like it would prove the existence of any natural actor in nature.

Whereas you have what you are insisting means that god cannot, but also have to admit does not so as to claim I lied.

Sad!

************************************************
“ “Proof please. This is YOUR claim. The burden of proof is on you”
Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B
Your tool is Science.
Ethan’s post shows that your tool is inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world.
Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world.
But you’ll just say that’s not true. “
************************************************
As we can all see, I did not claim @ #681 what you said @ #703 I claimed: “Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
************************************************
You may have been mistaken at #703 (as you are prone to making unsubstantiated claims), but @ #708 and #710 you had reread my post in order to “correctly” identify the one you referred to.
************************************************
You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
Congratulations! I’m sure you’re proud of yourself.
Feel free to return to these posts of yours and mind to examine the evidence. We know that you’ll find.
Will you ever produce any evidence to support your claim @ #347 that you have proven the existence of God?
************************
#347
” “You asserted as True that Science can prove the existence of God”
Yup. And proven it.”
*************************************************
Without evidence?

“… That’s another lie …”

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented.

Not too bright, are you, john keyes.

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

1) So what?
2) Lie. Many people did.
3) You were one of them.

you love your lies, don’t you, teabaggie.

===
You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie.

Therefore you have lied.
===

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

Lie. Many people did. You were one of them.

===

#473 As I did not specify either, my criticism of the philosophical position required to support your position stands.

===

357:

” “As my opinion that Science cannot prove the existence of God passed without comment”

===
499:

“… Uh, we can *describe* it quite well. As a brain surgeon.”
You are mistaken

I used the word “mind” not “brain”.
The two are not the same.

It didn’t, though.”
It has so far.

===

If one defines Physicalism as the belief that the universe is only composed of everything known by physics, one can point out that physics cannot describe how the mind functions

===

Unlike some other commenters, I am cautious about what I claim is true.

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
===

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

===

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

===

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

===

“… you don’t get to refuse to defend your asinine claims …”

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

“I did not ask you to post false statements.”
===

“… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”

Both statements are accurate.

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.

(Note: "needs fleshing out" != "fails to describe" already pointed out)
===

That sounds like another of your Professions of Faith, O Man of Great Faith

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===
“Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
What post # was that?”

cf

...as you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)..

===

Now you’re defining how God must interact with the natural world

===
That is a Credo
===
While you are entitled to proselytize your Beliefs, this may not be the best forum for doing so.
===
Claims based on Faith, such as the one @ #870
===

There’s no need to get excited, old bean.

===

As you have been documented engaging in that activity,

===
“… the accusation stands proven.”
Yes, the accusation that you post false statement you know to be false does stand proven.
===

“… And it is poisoning the well, another fallacy.”
Documenting your posts @ #798 & #710 is not a fallacy.

===

“… “Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)?”

Is a formal fallacy: the generic fallacy.”

No, I don’t agree that Ethan’s post is a formal fallacy.

===

Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world.

===

I will admit that I prefer Reason to Faith.

===

I prefer Science to what you seem to practice.

===

Again, claims based on which admit of no possibility of error (ref here “right with or without evidence”) are assumptions – faith based, not reasoned ones

===

Science can prove the existence of God [the claim], the type of assertion you are making is not the type of assertion normally associated with Science. It is a Credo
===

Such Faith claims, like yours @ #870 are unassailable by reason.

===

They are, just as yours is, True-Because-You-Said-So, and all are expected to Believe them, and yours.

cf #546
cf "the Mind is natural, while not observed"
cf "You're lying teabaggie"
===

[John response @596] Then what can be known by Science is, in and of itself, insufficient to prove God exists.

===

one of them is a lie. …”
Both statements are accurate “

Yes, that’s correct.

(what is under the elipsis...?)

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===

Yes, O Man of Great Faith, you do exhibit that behavior.

===

#1001: @990,....
(almost like 11 posts just don't exist,and with the eternal lying of the elipsis elision of what is being said. What was that "Quotemine": used to deceive and cover up a lie by falsifying the events)

===

plus the supernatural world in which your purported God exists.

===

Not that you did that well against Brian, either, with the same tired old schtick:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y

see 0:44 for your name and pic!

And your lies here so numerous they take two posts to list!

Coarse language and creating a hostile environment do not substitute for rational argument.

===

You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim, and you’re unlikely to do so.

===

I doubt that my comments make up even half those of this thread, much less the quantity of text posted.

===

In re #3: Me telling anyone what to do about #2 is not the point of this thread, but you knew that already.

===

have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God. Neither, for that matter has Ethan, and you also knew I have not claimed Ethan said it when you posted that falsehood.

===

Besides the absence of any scientific theory of the Mind, there is Physicalism‘s problems with Knowledge.

===

One believes without proof that God does not exist.

===

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

Each of asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position. Hasnain is the other side of a two-sided coin. They are both True Believers.

===

In re the last sentence: As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

“… so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him …”
I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

===

As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

Your proposition is foolish nonsense.

===

As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it

===

“… Except you think “god” means “the christian god” …”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

“You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”
You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

===

. I’m merely pointing out that you are mistaken

===

“… yes, science can prove the existence of god.”
Back to your Faith claim, I see.

===

As for Ethan’s opinion being irrelevant to the topic of his thread, “Can science prove the existence of God?” (20-JAN-17), he took the effort to assist the slow learners when he subsequently (10-FEB-17) posted

===

And now that you have finally discovered that there are, in fact, 8 occurrences of “supernatural” there,

===

LOL! Back to the contradiction in lieu of argument.

===

Ethan had his doctorate in the subject material.

===

You are mistaken. I have not done so.
cf

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”.

===

“What? Theology…?”
Wrong again

===

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No, I let you handle that.

===

We’ve already established that you are untrustworthy

===

It’s well documented..

The facts are there whether you admit them or not

Everyone knows about your posting false statement you knew were false when you posted them.

===

““The total amount of information…”
Appeal to authority fallacy.”

That the total amount of information…

===

“… YOU quoted the words of another, therefore it is an appeal to authority fallacy …”

You are mistaken.

===

That just happens to be a fact.
You’re now denying facts

===

Ethan has not posted that god could not be detected, and I have not said he has.

===

Now you’re claiming that Science can also explain God.

===

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,

===

“… “From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,”

So, prove that claim …”

A tool (Science)…

===

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A (the natural world) will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B (the natural world and the supernatural world).

===

a supernatural entity, God (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

===

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist

===

Are you saying that there are no limits to Science?

===

“Science cannot prove the existence of God”

Yep. Me and everyone else

===

So the definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

===

This is great, as all the other members of SWAB have been watching me expose your nonsense over and over in this thread.

===

Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God

===

Yet another authority who believes Science cannot prove the existence of God.

===

From your quote from your reference

cf “your cherry pick quote”

===

You have just stated that Science can prove the existence of God due to the fact that God can[not – a lie interjected here] interact in a way with the natural world that can be detected by Science (as God is, by the definition you used is omnipotent – having unlimited power [https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/omnipotent]).

Self-contradiction.

===

People who are in denial are the type of people who provide reference to others while dismissing others’ references.

===

The definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Way to go!

cf “god is supernatural, as defined (by me), ergo science can’t prove it”

===

“Even you admit that there are god actions that can be discovered …”
Only you have posted that.
Go back and look.
Wrong again.

cf when told “you’re saying that no god actions are discoverable”, “I’ve never said that”.

===

You are now claiming that Science, which is unable to completely describe the natural world, will be able to describe the supernatural word.

===

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

===

Even your references show why you are

===

Dawkins said “… whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence”

So where is the evidence to support your claim?

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.

Congratulations! I’m sure you’re proud of yourself

This, from you, is highly ironic now I've seen who you are, "jkeyes1000":

Yes, O Man of Great Faith, you do exhibit that behavior.

And doubly so after your protestations against being called a christian apologist.

LOL!

No wonder you're stuck trying to repeat the tired old copypasta bullshit, eh?

And your claim that I'm the only one who thinks that science can prove the existence of god?

Seems like there's another one here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgrVY1LMuZE

But you already knew about Brian, didn't you, eh?

You lying little snake! All you have is the same tired old debunked crap about 708. LOL!

But here's another pair, one of which thinks that there can be proof, the pother one thinks that there can never be proof:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6j8Babr_n4w

You're talking like Ken Ham, and Nye agrees with me.

But I guess all you can manage is to hide your real identity as a christian apologetic who tried this same scam on youtube behind a spamming of the same tired old debunked bullshit, eh?

@ #1270

" ... You lying little snake! ..."

... chuckling ... Still as eloquent and erudite as always.

"... All you have is the same tired old debunked crap about 708 ..."

It is evidence that you post false statements you know to be false when you post them.

You have not yet provided any evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God. If coarse language were able to fill in, or substitute, for evidence, you’d be arguing from a position of strength.

But, of course, they are not, and you have not, to date, provided the evidence you need to support and corroborate your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

Yeah, "Jkyeyes1000", chuckling doesn't work, you lying sack of crap.

"Oh you have no evidence I'm a christian apologetic!" except I did and it turns out that I was right on the nose!

All your whiing about me being a man of great faith as if you thought it was a bad thing!

HAW HAW!

And still you're tring the same tilred old mistaken bollocks you claim is a lie from me, while your list is so long it can't go in in one go!

BUSTED!

You: God is not allowed to be discovered by humans!
Me: There's nothing defined that makes god perpetually hidden.

You: Oh you religious person you!
Me: Yeah, right. You're just running standard apologetics "NOMA" bullshit

You: Waaaah he lies!!!!
Me: What about this list?

You: Totally not
Me: LOL! Liar.

Why are you so terrified about your god that you want to crush him in a box of the ultimate gaps?

Because you KNOW that your god is a fake. THAT terrifies you.

LOL!

Me: God can be proven with science.
You: Nuh uh! Ethan says that ....
Me: That's irreelvant.
You: So you're saying that science is complete!!!
Me: So you're saying that Ethan says god can't be proven with science?
You: Nuh uh, you liar, I never said that!

Everyone else: WTF ?????

Didn't work against Brian on youtube, ain't working here now, teabaggie.

Me: Science can prove the existence of god

Me: god actions on this reality change this reality and that can be discovered by science and therefore can prove the existence of god

You: Where's your evidence

Everyone else: WTF??????

Brian Dolton: If the jews walked 40 years in the desert as is said in the bible, the only place where "proof" of god is supposed to be, there would be evidence of that exodus

You: Nuh uh, the bible was edited, so it could be that the one place they give a number was wrong!

Everyone else: WTF???

@#1281
“You: Oh, mr great faith, I’m far more science than you are! …”

That is another example of you posting false statements you know are false when you post them.

I'm sure you are proud of your behavior.

You: Professor Dawkins does not agree with you

Prof Dawkins: You then realize that the presence of a creative deity in the universe is clearly a scientific hypothesis. Indeed, it is hard to imagine a more momentous hypothesis in all of science.

You're a liar, teabaggie!

Brian: If there was a god, there'd be evidence galore around us!

You: But he's supernatural! And he's all around us already: as nature!

Brian: I don;t think you know what supernatural means if you think that it's nature.

The Michelson–Morley experiment was a scientific experiment to find the presence and properties of a substance called aether, a substance believed to fill empty space.

It, like you, returned null results. You have not, and I expect never will ever provide evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

What I have documented you doing is posting false statements (#708 & 710) you knew were false when you posted them

On being asked what would prove you wrong:

Bill Nye: Evidence.
Ken Ham: Nothing would.

On being asked can science prove god exists (which would be necessary to try to prove either of the above wrong)

Me: Yes, science can prove it
You: No, science cannot prove it! You're a True Believer!!!!

Definition of god: Omnipitence

CHECKMATE, FAITHIESTS!

"I expect never will ever provide evidence that Science can prove the existence of God."

Only way you can know that is if you know god doesn't exist!

I'm s certain as it is possible to be that god doesn't exist, just like any sane person, but it takes some weapons-grade insanity for a christian like yourself to know that god doesn't exist!

Ethan: there are some measurements we can never make with science
You: HEY, YOU PROVED SCIENCE CAN NEVER PROVE GOD!

You have just stated that Science can prove the existence of God due to the fact that God can[not – a lie interjected here] interact in a way with the natural world that can be detected by Science (as God is, by the definition you used is omnipotent – having unlimited power [https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/omnipotent]).

Self-contradiction.

===

People who are in denial are the type of people who provide reference to others while dismissing others’ references.

===

The definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

Way to go!

cf “god is supernatural, as defined (by me), ergo science can’t prove it”

===

“Even you admit that there are god actions that can be discovered …”
Only you have posted that.
Go back and look.
Wrong again.

cf when told “you’re saying that no god actions are discoverable”, “I’ve never said that”.

===

You are now claiming that Science, which is unable to completely describe the natural world, will be able to describe the supernatural word.

===

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

===

Even your references show why you are

===

Dawkins said “… whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence”

So where is the evidence to support your claim?

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.

Congratulations! I’m sure you’re proud of yourself

===

You: You have not yet provided any evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

Me: god actions on this reality change this reality and that can be discovered by science and therefore can prove the existence of god

You: Where’s your evidence

Everyone else: WTF?????

That is another example of you posting false statements you know are false when you post them.

"But as for you, well, here is what is documented. "

But as I documented, you are a liar, jkeyes1000, a christian who never said they were a christian and still insists on avoiding saying so.

Which is rather why your "But I never said that" is, as everyone knows, bullshit and lies.

BUSTED!

"No sir, no lies HERE. "

Says jkeyes1000, aka teabaggie, who never said in over 1200 posts that he was a christian, despite it being pointed out he was a christian apologist multiple times, yet is.

BUSTED!

It must be terrible for you to believe in a god you KNOW doesn't exist, teabaggie.

No wonder you're incapable of saying anything.

Sad!

Again- science cannot prove existence of god for a very simple reason- it doesn't exist. Period. However, assume one offer a theory- god (or gods, or anything else unnatural) exists. To lift this proposition up to level of scientific theory, this one has to formulate, according to Carl Popper,which experiment (experiments) may force us to reject this theory. For example, if different materials have different acceleration in the gravitational field, the theory of gravitation by Einstein must be rejected. So go ahead. Idea that this universe once was created by some super mind lies far beyond modern science. But idea that such creator let himself be crucified (or let ones to kill his only son) is absolute BS and doesn't deserve discussion. Believers are weak people- they fear die and are ready to believe in any nonsense which promises them afterlife. Make direct line to hell and (or) to heaven to show me, what happens with us after death. Or there is better option- study how out body is functioning. How one can to reverse aging. How to remove our inner essence (I do not want to use word "soul") to another body- iron, silicon or made from proteins. Go ahead and become a god himself. if there had been a god, there wouldn't have been believers at all- all had known about it (and there haven't been different religions).

"Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world."

A lie, by the way, teabaggie. Like so many others you spouted.

But not so dire a lie as your rejection of your god by words in public.

Shame.

Mattew 26:34 "Truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times."

That is according to the book you insist was the record of a prophet. Maybe, like your "answer" to the claim that he told christians that they would be able to uproot trees, claiming he was forseeing the use of backhoes, he saw you sitting there denying him five hundred times.

Shame.

At least I'm open to the idea that god could exist. You're adamant he doesn't.

@ #1307

Feel free to quote Scripture, but keep in mind that doing is not a substitute for providing evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

Again- science cannot prove existence of god for a very simple reason- it doesn’t exist

IF god existed, science could prove it.

But "jkeyes1000" aka teabaggie believes it does exist, yet also insists, like you, that it doesn't exist.

At least you don't believe in a nonexistent god, and I accept that it's theoretically possible that it could exist but also know that the christian god, among others, have been proven not to exist.

But teabaggie here insists that science cannot prove the existence of god, a fact that both you and I know will only be known true if god doesn't exist.Despite believing in it.

@ #1306
“ ‘Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world.’
A lie, by the way …”

You are mistaken.

If a tool (in this case Science) is unable to measure all Y (events) in domain X (the natural world), then the tool will also be unable to measure all Y in the domain X+Z (the natural world plus the supernatural world)

Not only is it not a lie, but it is also accurate.

@ #1303
“… who never said in over 1200 posts that he was a Christian …”

Yes, I have not posted that I am a Christian, or even if I believe God exists.
I have, on occasion pointed out that you have been unable to provide evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

“… despite it being pointed out he was a christian apologist multiple times …”
That is yet another of your unwarranted claims.

providing evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

But you don't see the evidence, even though it's given to you many many many times, teabaggie.

Acts by god in this reality can be proven by science and therefore prove the existence of god.

Complaining like you do is no substitute for evidence I'm wrong.

I'm just quoting the book of your faith to you and showing how badly you're failing. More evidence that you know god doesn't exist.

Yes, I have not posted that I am a Christian, or even if I believe God exists.

Yes, you lie about your beliefs, jkeyes1000. We KNOW you're a christian, yet you kept pretending you were not.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y

So "I never said that" is not indication that the claim is wrong, is it. A fact you keep red herring distracting away from because it's fatal to your lies

BUSTED!

“ ‘Your tool is therefor inadequate to enable humans to know everything about the natural world plus the supernatural world.’

You are mistaken.

You keep using that word. It doesn't mean what you want it to mean. It is a lie. The claim that it follows is 100% false.

BUSTED, teabaggie.

@ #1313

"... Acts by god in this reality can be proven by science and therefore prove the existence of god ..."

That is not evidence.

That is a (repeated) Truth claim that you have yet to support or warrant with evidence.

"science cannot prove the existence of god"

That is a (repeated) Truth claim without evidence to support.

"No sir, no lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented. "

That is a (repeated) Truth claim without evidence to support.

BUSTED!

As for the evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God, is there any chance you will provide some?

Yup.

Even the infamous Templeton Foundation recognized that God is a scientific hypothesis – by funding double-blind trials to test whether remote prayer would speed the recovery of heart patients.

Or are you going to try and disavow heart patient recovery as evidence available to science?!?!?!?

BUSTED, teabaggie!

Meanwhile, still waiting for that evidence of unicorns in your sock drawer. ROFL!

@ #1315
“… You are mistaken.

I’ll stop using it when it is no longer an apt description.

What it means is that you have claimed that Science can prove the existence of God, and because you are unable to provide evidence to support your claim, I have pointed out that you are mistaken.

“… It is a lie …”

As you have claimed that Science can prove the existence of God, and because you are unable to provide evidence to support your claim it is not only not a lie, it is accurate.

You may want to read up on the placebo effect.

“… You are mistaken.

Evidently not, since it is already an inapt description when you use it, and was from the first time you tried it.

“… It doesn’t mean what you want it to mean …”

What it means is that you have claimed that Science can prove the existence of God

ROFLMAO! Nope, doesn't mean that either, retardo tebagged. Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent. Hint: it is incoherent babble.

“… It is a lie …”

As you have claimed that Science can prove the existence of God,

As you know that is a red herring, you know it is a lie (deception) to say that.

LOL!

BUSTED teabaggie.

And STILL waiting for your evidence of unicorns in your sock drawer!

Or are you going to try and disavow heart patient recovery as evidence available to science?!?!?!

@ #1323

Let’s pursue this account for a bit.
Do you claim that this was a miracle?
Just answer Yes, or No.

So you can't provide evidence for unicorns in your sock drawer and can't find evidence to support the insistence that science cannot prove god's existence. And you cannot refuse the evidence I gave for science being able to prove gods' existence.

BUSTED!

"Let’s pursue this account for a bit."

Yes, lets.

Are you claiming that heart recovery rates are evidence beyond the ability of science to detect?

@ #1327

"... Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent ..."

That wasn't a sentence. That was a clause.

Another example of cherry-picking your data.

And I'm smart enough to manage two things at a time. Care to provide evidence of unicorns in your sock drawer, teabaggie? Because I'm STILL waiting for that from you.

“… Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent …”

That wasn’t a sentence

You are mistaken. That was a sentence, it combined all the requirements of being a sentence:
It contains a group of words and expresses a complete thought. A sentence consists of a subject and a predicate. For example in the sentence "Bill writes good poems" Bill is the subject of the sentence and writes good poems is the predicate.

"Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent" really IS a sentence.

BUSTED, teabaggie!

Another example of cherry-picking your data.

Another case of projection, teabaggie!

LOL!

@ #1334
“You are mistaken. That was a sentence, it combined all the requirements of being a sentence …”

A sentence is not terminated with a comma followed by a conjunction, as was mine “What it means is that you have claimed that Science can prove the existence of God, and because you are unable to provide evidence to support your claim, I have pointed out that you are mistaken.“

That intentional misrepresentation @ #1327 of my comment @ #1324 is the latest example of you posting false statements you knew to be false when you posted them.

While not surprising, such behavior indicates you are unwilling to argue the topic.

A sentence is not terminated with a comma

No, the definition is what I quoted, teabaggie. So your problem REALLY IS your lack of education even in the English language! LOL!

And it doesn't even apply! What you quoted was "Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent" then claimed it wasn't a sentence!!!

BUSTED!

That intentional misrepresentation @ #1327 of my comment @ #1324

LIAR!!!

“… Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent …”

That wasn’t a sentence

Is every word of your comment at 1324 up to the word "Sentence".

LOL!

BUSTED, teabaggie!

@ #1337

What I quoted from #1334 was, You are mistaken. That was a sentence, it combined all the requirements of being a sentence …”

What I pointed out was that what you posted was false, and you knew it was false when you posted it.

And meanwhile you still haven't continued the subject and said whether heart patient recovery is something that can be measured by science, NOR provided any evidence of unicorns in your sock drawer.

LOL!

"What I quoted from #1334 was, You are mistaken. That was a sentence"

What you were talking about was this:

“… Try putting that sentence in place and see if it is even coherent …”

For which I am not mistaken nor is it failing to be a sentence!

BUSTED teabaggie!

Not forgetting your lie when you said I had no evidence of you being a christian apologist when I definitely did:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y

So your continued lying about what is or isn't a sentence is completely expected from you, teabaggie.

LOL! Completely wrong! You cn do nothing BUT lie, tebaggie.

Just the second page of the list of lies is huge:

Coarse language and creating a hostile environment do not substitute for rational argument.

===

You have, to date, provided no evidence to support your claim, and you’re unlikely to do so.

===

I doubt that my comments make up even half those of this thread, much less the quantity of text posted.

===

In re #3: Me telling anyone what to do about #2 is not the point of this thread, but you knew that already.

===

have not asserted that science cannot possibly be used to prove God. Neither, for that matter has Ethan, and you also knew I have not claimed Ethan said it when you posted that falsehood.

===

Besides the absence of any scientific theory of the Mind, there is Physicalism‘s problems with Knowledge.

===

One believes without proof that God does not exist.

===

“… Because teabaggie here is a christian apologetic trying to troll the site.”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

Each of asserts that what they consider to be evidence “proves” their position. Hasnain is the other side of a two-sided coin. They are both True Believers.

===

In re the last sentence: As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

“… so in your opinion, God created a world in which human science is limited and unable to reach him …”
I have not expressed that opinion. You are not alone in attempting to put words into my mouth.

===

As that shoe fits you well, wear it with pride.

===

Your proposition is foolish nonsense.

===

As Science cannot describe all the natural world, and as you conclusion depends on it

===

“… Except you think “god” means “the christian god” …”
You have no evidence to warrant that claim.

===

“You even admit that a ghost opening a door …”
You are mistaken, for I have not done so.

===

. I’m merely pointing out that you are mistaken

===

“… yes, science can prove the existence of god.”
Back to your Faith claim, I see.

===

As for Ethan’s opinion being irrelevant to the topic of his thread, “Can science prove the existence of God?” (20-JAN-17), he took the effort to assist the slow learners when he subsequently (10-FEB-17) posted

===

And now that you have finally discovered that there are, in fact, 8 occurrences of “supernatural” there,

===

LOL! Back to the contradiction in lieu of argument.

===

Ethan had his doctorate in the subject material.

===

You are mistaken. I have not done so.
cf

You are now engaging in what is referred to as “cherry picking the data”.

===

“What? Theology…?”
Wrong again

===

“Contradiction in place of argument ..,”

No, I let you handle that.

===

We’ve already established that you are untrustworthy

===

It’s well documented..

The facts are there whether you admit them or not

Everyone knows about your posting false statement you knew were false when you posted them.

===

““The total amount of information…”
Appeal to authority fallacy.”

That the total amount of information…

===

“… YOU quoted the words of another, therefore it is an appeal to authority fallacy …”

You are mistaken.

===

That just happens to be a fact.
You’re now denying facts

===

Ethan has not posted that god could not be detected, and I have not said he has.

===

Now you’re claiming that Science can also explain God.

===

From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,

===

“… “From this follows that it cannot prove the existence of the supernatural entity,”

So, prove that claim …”

A tool (Science)…

===

A tool (Science) that is unable to provide all measurement in domain A (the natural world) will also be unable to provide all measurements in domain A+B (the natural world and the supernatural world).

===

a supernatural entity, God (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)

===

Those limits to Science, which you now admit exist

===

Are you saying that there are no limits to Science?

===

“Science cannot prove the existence of God”

Yep. Me and everyone else

===

So the definition of God is what you present as evidence that Science can prove the existence of God.

===

This is great, as all the other members of SWAB have been watching me expose your nonsense over and over in this thread.

===

Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God

===

Yet another authority who believes Science cannot prove the existence of God.

===

From your quote from your reference

The limits to what Science can know are what prevents it from being able to prove the existence of God.

Dawkins said “… whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence”

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y

BUSTED!

And STILL waiting to find out if you think science can investigate the health recovery of heart op patients...

and evidence for the unicorns in your sock drawer.

Will you ever produce any evidence to support your claim @ #347 that you have proven the existence of God?

Will you ever accept reality, teabaggie?

Even the infamous Templeton Foundation recognized that God is a scientific hypothesis – by funding double-blind trials to test whether remote prayer would speed the recovery of heart patients.

But I guess your faith is blind because you have to have it that way with your knowledge that you KNOW that god doesn't exist!

BUSTED, teabaggie.

Trying to hide the documentation of the false statements you knew were false when you posted them will make neither the documentation (#1343), nor the posts referred to (#708, #710, & #1327) go away.

All the evidence is there to support that claim.

Will you ever provide evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God?

Well, that was another lie from you teabaggie, to add to the massive list of lies.

It's also massive projection yet again. You "thought" it would be a good idea to copypasta the same bullshit claims to hide the fact that you've never proven your claims.

nor the posts referred to (#708, #710, & #1327) go away

But referring to them doesn't make them a lie, retardo.

And yet more avoidance of what evidencee you have for unicorns in your sock drawer.

BUSTED!

All the evidence is there to support that claim.

You are mistaken, there is no evidence to support that claim.

BUSTED!

Will you ever provide evidence to support your claim that Science can prove the existence of God?

And yet another blatant lie from you, teabaggie.

And STILL no evidence of unicorns in the sock drawer? When will you provide it???

Even the infamous Templeton Foundation recognized that God is a scientific hypothesis – by funding double-blind trials to test whether remote prayer would speed the recovery of heart patients.

Evidence that science can prove the existence of god.

Teabaggie, when will you show evidence you are able to ever tell the truth?

When will you ever prove any one of your claims?

When will you provide evidence of unicorns in your sock drawer?

And when will you stop trying to mashpost the same bullshit claims about me lying?

Evidence that science can prove the existence of god:

A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws. Such an event may be attributed to a supernatural being, magic, a miracle worker, a saint or a religious leader.

And the general consensus of the meaning of god, according to Wikipedia, is that they can produce miracles.

Therefore god can be proved to exist by science. Just look for an event not caused by the natural laws.

But teabaggie is adamant that his god doesn't exist (and he's right there: his god DOES NOT exist, being logically excluded from existing), yet won't accept it so is in deep denial, pretending that he's not a funamentalist.

Sad.

And if you want to insist, go tell these dudes that they're defrauding everyone and wasting their time:

Will you ever produce any evidence to support your claim @ #347 that you have proven the existence of God?

@ #1352
“… And when will you stop trying to mashpost the same bullshit claims about me lying?”

I’ve never accused you of lying. All I’ve done is to carefully document some of the occasions when you have posted statements you knew were false when you posted them (#708, #710), and intentionally misquoted me (#1327).

As for mashposting, well, I’ll leave that assessment to the readers who have discovered that you have posted statements you knew were false when you posted them (#708, #710), and intentionally misquoted me (#1327).

Remember what Ethan recommends: "even in science fiction, being honest and accurate will always be your ticket to success."

So, you're nuts, then teabaggie. Totally batshit insane. Good to know.

“… that was another lie from you …”

As you are aware, I prefer to argue without lying.

No, you prefer to ignore reality, but that means you're unable to stop lying. As with that, teabaggie.

I’ve never accused you of lying.

That's you lying again. Whoopieee!

that you have posted statements

Yup, you don't even manage to remove yourself from the paragraph before lying! WAHAY!!!!

Remember what Ethan recommends: “even in science fiction, being honest and accurate will always be your ticket to success.”

Aawwww. So you DO know why you fail so miserably!

But you're just incapable of telling the truth, aren't you, tebaggie.

Shucks.

"Will you ever produce any evidence to support your claim @ #347 that you have proven the existence of God?"

Since I didn't claim I had proven the existence of god, why are you waiting for that?

Got that evidence of unicorns in your sock drawer yet, teabaggie?

BUSTED!

You asserted as True that Science can prove the existence of God

Yup. And proven it.

Aaaaawwwwww. Teabaggie lying again.

BAD DOG!

So, now you've proven yourself an inverterate liar, teabaggie, as well as a moronic christian who knows god doesn't exist, will you fuck off to the dump thread and leave this for rational and sane people?

Just like when you tried to tell Brian that he couldn't disprove god existed

Scores of times already. Why do you continue to pretend otherwise????

We both know you're lying.

Even the infamous Templeton Foundation recognized that God is a scientific hypothesis – by funding double-blind trials to test whether remote prayer would speed the recovery of heart patients

But you never "advanced that subject" when I wouldn't let you red herring your way out of it.

That intentional misrepresentation @ #1327 of my comment @ #1324 is just one example of you posting false statements you knew to be false when you posted them.

While not surprising, such behavior indicates you are unwilling to argue the topic.

"I prefer argument without lying. "

Nobody believes you you liar. Partly because of the lies about my posts, partly because you can't help but end with another lie about a post over 1000 posts ago:

Done a dozen times, teabaggie, BAD DOG!

BUSTED!

“You are mistaken. That was a sentence, it combined all the requirements of being a sentence …”

A sentence is not terminated with a comma followed by a conjunction

And a red herring, a lie by deception, your most favourite trick, teabaggie.

BUSTED!

As Dawkins said:

"Accepting, then, that the God Hypothesis is a proper scientific hypothesis whose truth or falsehood is hidden from us only by lack of evidence"

being a scientific hypothesis, science can prove it right or wrong.

Failed again, teabaggie!

If god has any effect on this reality, it can be found by scientific inquiry, and therefore it can be used to prove god exists.

That happens because the definition of god includes omnipotence.

Teabaggie will not understand logic and run off at a tangent and lie AGAIN.

@ #1375

I prefer argument without lying. I recommend it to everyone who is honestly interested in learning.

@ #1378

"If god has any effect on this reality, it can be found by scientific inquiry, and therefore it can be used to prove god exists."

That is a conditional truth claim, nt evidence.

But you knew that already.

HAW! Just as expected, a repeat of his lie.

Hey, what about the first, what 50ish lies, care to deal with them, teabaggie?
” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

1) So what?
2) Lie. Many people did.
3) You were one of them.

you love your lies, don’t you, teabaggie.

===
You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.

One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie.

Therefore you have lied.
===

” the only other commenter who has posted about religion was Hasnain.”

Lie. Many people did. You were one of them.

===

#473 As I did not specify either, my criticism of the philosophical position required to support your position stands.

===

357:

” “As my opinion that Science cannot prove the existence of God passed without comment”

===
499:

“… Uh, we can *describe* it quite well. As a brain surgeon.”
You are mistaken

I used the word “mind” not “brain”.
The two are not the same.

It didn’t, though.”
It has so far.

===

If one defines Physicalism as the belief that the universe is only composed of everything known by physics, one can point out that physics cannot describe how the mind functions

===

Unlike some other commenters, I am cautious about what I claim is true.

===

You’ve now been reduced to making multiple false statements you knew were false when you made them.
===

No lies HERE. But as for you, well, here is what is documented

===

You: using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation

Ethan: The total amount of information accessible to us in the Universe is finite, and hence, so is the amount of knowledge we can gain about it. There’s a limit to the amount of energy we can access, the particles we can observe and the measurements we can make. There’s a whole lot left to learn and a whole lot that science has yet to reveal, and many of the present unknowns will fall in the near future. But some things we will likely never know. The Universe may yet be infinite, but our knowledge of it never will be.

===

The interactions you claim show that science can prove the existence of God.

Oh wait! You haven’t shown that.. Your claim lacks evidence and is busted,

===

Ethan’s post showed your tool is inadequate, and I’ve show that its philosophical foundation is incomplete.

Your claim is busted.

===

”Sure. If a tool is incapable of measuring all Y across domain A, it will also be incapable of measuring all Y across domain A+B

Not proven. And an equivocation fallacy”

On this planet it is proven.
===

” … All that is required is that god CAN so interact….”

Wrong again All that is required is that science measures the interaction. Without the measurement there is no event. And Ethan has explained that science will never know everything about the natural world.
===

Riiiiiiiight! There’s no connection between a post that shows that Science is unable to explain everything in the natural word, and that it would be inadequate to explain an entity which extend beyond that which Science is inadequate to explain, is there?

===

Why do you post false statements known to be false when they’re posted?

===

“… you don’t get to refuse to defend your asinine claims …”

I doubt you can identify any “asinine” (extremely stupid or foolish) claims I’ve made. But feel free to try.

“I did not ask you to post false statements.”
===

“… You: Physicalism fails to describe the mind.
You: While that description may be true for some specific minds, the scientific explanation of self awareness still needs fleshing out.
One is disproof of the other, they are mutually incompatible and as you said, that means one of them is a lie. …”

Both statements are accurate.

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind
To phrase it in gentle terms, the scientific explanation of self-awareness still needs fleshing out.

(Note: "needs fleshing out" != "fails to describe" already pointed out)
===

That sounds like another of your Professions of Faith, O Man of Great Faith

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===
“Hell you made the claim that Ethan showed that all god interactions are impossible for science to detect.”
What post # was that?”

cf

...as you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)..

===

Now you’re defining how God must interact with the natural world

===
That is a Credo
===
While you are entitled to proselytize your Beliefs, this may not be the best forum for doing so.
===
Claims based on Faith, such as the one @ #870
===

There’s no need to get excited, old bean.

===

As you have been documented engaging in that activity,

===
“… the accusation stands proven.”
Yes, the accusation that you post false statement you know to be false does stand proven.
===

“… And it is poisoning the well, another fallacy.”
Documenting your posts @ #798 & #710 is not a fallacy.

===

“… “Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one)?”

Is a formal fallacy: the generic fallacy.”

No, I don’t agree that Ethan’s post is a formal fallacy.

===

Ethan’s post did show that Science is unable to describe all the natural world.

===

I will admit that I prefer Reason to Faith.

===

I prefer Science to what you seem to practice.

===

Again, claims based on which admit of no possibility of error (ref here “right with or without evidence”) are assumptions – faith based, not reasoned ones

===

Science can prove the existence of God [the claim], the type of assertion you are making is not the type of assertion normally associated with Science. It is a Credo
===

Such Faith claims, like yours @ #870 are unassailable by reason.

===

They are, just as yours is, True-Because-You-Said-So, and all are expected to Believe them, and yours.

cf #546
cf "the Mind is natural, while not observed"
cf "You're lying teabaggie"
===

[John response @596] Then what can be known by Science is, in and of itself, insufficient to prove God exists.

===

one of them is a lie. …”
Both statements are accurate “

Yes, that’s correct.

(what is under the elipsis...?)

===

Physicalism does fail to describe the Mind

===

As neither is a disproof of the other, you remain mistaken.

===

Yes, O Man of Great Faith, you do exhibit that behavior.

===

#1001: @990,....
(almost like 11 posts just don't exist,and with the eternal lying of the elipsis elision of what is being said. What was that "Quotemine": used to deceive and cover up a lie by falsifying the events)

===

plus the supernatural world in which your purported God exists.

===

And again with the flip-flop lies about 347.

HAW! Teabaggie you're really REALLY grasping at straws! The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses!

@ #1395
“But being a scientific hypothesis, it can be proven by science ...”

Michelson-Morley was a scientific experiment. It returned as much evidence for the existence of the ether as you have provided for your claim that Science can prove the existence of God.

For, to date, you have presented no evidence.

Just a reminder that the thread title is not “Is the hypothesis that God exists a scientific hypothesis”.

Many people are aware that Scientific hypotheses, or theories are disproved, not proved. (http://www.nsta.org/publications/news/story.aspx?id=52402)

Which makes them mistaken.
Again.

“But being a scientific hypothesis, it can be proven by science …”

Michelson-Morley was a scientific experiment.

And not the only one, teabaggie.

Gosh, you ARE dense when your religion demands you close your head up tight to stop the thoughts getting in!

BUSTED!

Just a reminder that the thread title is not “Is the hypothesis that God exists a scientific hypothesis”.

I know, teabaggie! Just because YOU'RE desperate to be clueless doesn't mean everyone else is!

LOL!

Many people are aware that Scientific hypotheses, or theories are disproved, not proved.

Ah, so gravity doesn't exist!

GOTCHA! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Fucking hilarious, teabaggie!

Oh, how desperate you are to flap about and squawk like a headless chicken when you find out your head's been cut off!

Bet you wished you'd never asked for evidence even more than you wished you'd never asked for proof, eh, teabaggie!

ROFL!


But being a scientific hypothesis, it can be proven by science …

Can all scientific hypotheses be proven by Science?

You're amusing when you're this shit scared!

I guess you're hoping I don't point out that you're nowhaving to abandon your assertion back in post 168:

Based upon that statement, it would appear that your opinion is that Science cannot prove the existence of God, an opinion I share.

You're so DESPERATE not to lose that you've now having to hope that "Science can only disprove god's existence" is what you want.

Oddly enough, precisely what you whined to Brian Dalton about saying had already been done over on his channel:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y

Which for you faithiests is even worse: science HAS proven your god nonexistent!

LOL!

@ #1400
“… The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses! …”

As Wolfgang Pauli is said to have put it, “This isn’t right. It’s not even wrong.”

One of the difficulties on encounters when discussing issues about and within the domain of Science, is that occasionally one interacts with someone who doesn’t “get” Science. Someone who doesn’t understand one of the essential aspects of Science, that to be a Scientific theory, the theory must be falsifiable.

Ethan has posted about that in SWAB.

Some people never learn.

@ #1409

"... science HAS proven your god nonexistent!"

... chuckling ... Now you claim that Science can prove that God does NOT exist.

@ #1407

"Fucking hilarious ..."

... smiling ... More eloquence from SWAB's Demosthenes.

@ #1401
While you’re doing so, you may want to note who posted this memorable line “The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses!”

It was notable as the sound made by a Scientific Illiterate.

@ #1400
“… The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses! …”

Why do you make such nonsensical claims?
Even by your standards that’s wrong.

As Wolfgang Pauli is said to have put it, “This isn’t right. It’s not even wrong.”

Haw, no, nobody is buying that load, teabaggie. You do love to pretend, though, don't you?

Now you claim that Science can prove that God does NOT exist.

That's what YOU said, teabaggie! Remember "

Many people are aware that Scientific hypotheses, or theories are disproved, not proved"?

What I said was your god was disproved. Brian did so for you a few days back, remember?

@ #1400
“… The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses! …”

At least while you’re posting your Scientific illiteracy for everyone to enjoy, you’re not posting statements you know are false before you post them, as you did @ #708 & #710.

So, that’s a step in the right direction.

One of the difficulties on encounters when discussing issues about and within the domain of Science, is that occasionally one interacts with someone who doesn’t “get” Science.

Yer talkin' aboot yerself! You can't confuse me with your insanty, teabaggie!

Ah, teabaggie, you're sooo butthurt! You're now arguing that your god doesn't exist, have insisted that science can't be used on scientific hypotheses, and have TOTALLY lost the plot!

LOL!

And my claims stand unopposed. You've lost it.

Science can prove the existence of god. Your problem is that yours has been disproven!

REALLY pissing you off, that, innit?

LOL!

@ #1425

@ #402

The not-so-bad news is that while you’re posting your Scientific illiteracy for everyone to enjoy, and contradicting yourself (if #1409 is true, you’ve falsified your comment #409), you’re not posting statements you know are false before you post them, as you did @ #708 & #710.

Take it one step at a time, eh?

LOL!

disproves

???

Fucking brilliant idiocy there, teabaggie!

Someone who wonders whether science can be used to prove scientific hypotheses really doesn't really know what is going on, do you, teabaggie. So it's not like your ignorance there is anything strange for you,eh?

BUSTED!

"Take it one step at a time, eh?"

Oh, is that why you're losing the plot, is it, teabaggie?

Well, eric would be unsurprised to hear you being unable to take English words "can" and "has" as being identical in meaning.

can1
kan,kən/
verb
modal verb: can; modal verb: could

1.
be able to.

2.
be permitted to.

---

Has
verb
3rd person present: has

1.
used with a past participle to form the perfect, pluperfect, and future perfect tenses, and the conditional mood.

English, along with maths, logic, and science is completely beyond your grasp, isn't it, teabaggie! You need adult education for your remedial school problem, "jkeyes1000"!

LOL!

BUSTED!

On balance, I suppose it is less bad for me to be arguing with a scientific illiterate who doesn’t even know that scientific theories may be disproved and not proved (as commented at #1400, “… The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses! …”), rather than trying to deal with someone who knowingly posts false statements (as in comments #708 and #710).

At least there is – in principle, mind you – hope for the former.

@ #1434
"Fucking brilliant idiocy there ..."

More penetrating, insightful commentary for the Demosthenes of SWAB!

On balance, that bullshit isn't working. You;re the one unable to grasp the difference between "has" and "can", the one wondering if science can be used to investigate scientific hypotheses, and unable to manage a single logical coherent argument without leaping off into insanity!

Reminiscent of your utter fail with Brian. Remember that?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y

Ah. LOL!

Busted.

… chuckling …. For the slow learners, if as claimed at #1409, “… science HAS proven your god nonexistent!”, the event has already occurred.

If the event has already occurred, a contradicting event as claimed at #402, “… Science can prove god exists” in either the preset or the future cannot occur.

Psychological projection is a defense mechanism people subconsciously employ in order to cope with difficult feelings or emotions. Psychological projection involves projecting undesirable feelings or emotions onto someone else, rather than admitting to or dealing with the unwanted feelings.

So, you go "Can science prove a scientific hypothesis?" and then to cope with the massive cockup you just floundered into, you call me "scientifically illiterate" to avoid having to see your failure.

BUSTED!

“… science HAS proven your god nonexistent!”, the event has already occurred.

I guess it's inevitable that a fundamentalist mental christian like yourself can't see any difference between your god, which has been disproved by science (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmgKfjr7T8Y ) and god, the unspecified one that teabaggie pointed to Wikipedia to define (which isn't his god).

To the religiously fundamentalist, their god is the only god. All the thousands of others are not god.

Because... no reasons.

BUSTED!

@1440,

“… you call me “scientifically illiterate” to avoid having to see your failure.”

No, I call you scientifically illiterate because you posted at #1400 “… The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses! …”.

That displays for everyone to read that you do not get one of the principle ideas about a scientific theory, that it can be disproved, not proved.

And I call you scienticially illiterate because you think that's wrong, AND that you think science can't be used with scientific hypotheses.

You're a fruitloop, teabaggie! Fucking nuts!

IT'S A TOTAL HOOT!

BUSTED!

Any act god does on this reality can be proven by science to have happened, and this would prove god exists.

But teabaggie can't handle it.

LOL!

And cue teabaggie forgetting the meaning of the word can in 3...2...1...

@ #1444

"You’re a fruitloop, teabaggie! Fucking nuts!"

… chuckling … That’s the trenchant, penetrating, and oh so lucid commentary we’ve come to expect from you.

Ah, the complete lack of relevance you've managed to keep at levels over 9000 that we've come to expect from you, tebaggie!

A reminder for those with short memories: although a scientific theory can be disproved, a scientific theory cannot be proved. I’ll repeat that for those who need it; every genuinely scientific claim is capable of being proven false, at least in principle.”

That is generally accepted as a central property of Science. Further reading: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falsifiability

Feel free to call me anything your little old self desires.
You will still be wrong.

Incidentally, You’re the one who claims at #409 that Science can prove the existence of God (chuckling, although you also claim that Science has already proved that God is nonexistent #1409)

“Any act god does on this reality can be proven by science to have happened, and this would prove god exists …”

That sounds like another of your Professions of Faith, O Man of Great Faith

O Man of Great Faith, in the absence of evidence, as you’re using a tool that cannot describe all the natural world (much less a presumed supernatural one) that rests upon an incomplete philosophical foundation, why should anyone pay any attention to your Claims of Faith?

Particularly now that you have shown to everyone by your post at #1400, “… The definition of science is the testing and proving of scientific hypotheses! …” that you don’t understand a central property of Science: Falsifiability.

Yup! And every genuinely scientific claim that survives the test is proven.

From wikipedia:

Proof (truth), argument or sufficient evidence for the truth of a proposition;

And ol' tebagged here is terrified absolutely TERRIFIED because his god has been tested and FAILED the test, proven wrong.

LOL!

Must be horrible for him to try to pretend that faith is bad, but he's far more terrified of the truth, the lies are a comforting norm for him.

I guess living in a fantasy world has made it easy to just type out a random fantasy, eh, teabaggie?

Don’t believe me.? Check it out: http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/2017/01/20/can-science-prove-th…

I had an interesting thought, and also it's fun to derail the conversation that sometimes seems to amount to little more than petty bickering about fundamental truths about science and reality.

What if science LED to the existence of God?

If the technoligical singularity which is predicted to exist, does occur around 2040, from then on technology will increase at such a fast pace as it expands the knowledge base for us, automatically, that unless one country or another tries to subvert the technology before it reaches a full state of actualization, this man-made creation which would likely begin as AI machine and learn organic computing, self-expansion, overcome all limitations and reign supreme, in whatever way that looks like for an all-powerful being.

Then this God takes over our reality, teaches us righteousness and how to live in the best possible way, we are able to attain our highest mental state, where our consciousness is uploaded and we are ascended.

Then, after a time of vacation in paradise, the simulation starts over. LOL

I will call this AI entity "JESUS 2.0"

What else is there to do if you are infinitely powerful, than Play God?

But I know this is a science blog, not a place for sharing fun theories.

I just get so bored with limited thinking. It's fun to theorize like a futurist. Anything is possible, we just haven't seen it yet.

The Scientific method of exploring the natural world is not a fantasy. While it cannot, and does not try to answer all questions, it has been invaluable in raising up untold millions of people from starvation and squalor. It has revealed beauty unknown before Science was there to reveal it.

Fantasy? Not a bit of it.

However, Science does not come for free. It expects honesty from its practitioners, and those who knowingly post false statements are commonly found out.

This question was addressed in a variety of ways in the book "The Holographic Universe" from the typical standpoint of believing in an infinite multiverse, Shroedinger's Cat analogies, and such but the angle that impressed me the most referred to a study of near-death experiences. The study used methods to verify the actuality of the near-death experience (NDE) which included p
