do you think science can eventually answer questions dwelling on the existence of God?

if god can be explained then he isn't god anymore.. besides your professor is gullible which can be said the same to other people who believe that agapito flores is real..

and that story was an urban legend in the 80s to the early 90s perpetrated by pranksters and spread by a christian news network who didn't bother to check with the sources

The way things right now is fine with me.
and like manzi said, proving the existence of God would only show that he's no God, but an existing being.

My former literature professor once told us about scientists doing experiments proving the existence of hell. She said that they placed a certain sound device/microchip along earth's core (not really sure where they place it) . Then after that they been hearing voices of people who are in pain and suffering so they concluded that their is a possibility that this certain area is what we so-called hell.

I find it creepy and i dont believe what she was saying then but my classmate (who is a so-called bookworm) also seconded and said the details exactly as what my professor said a while ago. And I dont think it is a made-up story, my professor cant be easily deceive right?

I dont know the exact details. If someone also read/heard about it please feel free to correct me.

So what do you think? and also as a follow-up question:

Do you want them to prove the questions dwelling on the existence of God or you just want to leave things as it is now?


it is impossible to prove a negative since people have to believe in god based on unexplainable events they can never prove he exists or for that matter that anything that involves faith. it wouldn't be faith if it could ever be proven. i don't think that we will ever find out it is impossible at least by anything that you would call science.

Eh, those sounds are fake, your teachers fucking with you (What Manzi said)

Put it this way, Have you seen God? Has he done anything for you? Answer these questions, nothing more, and decide whether or not hes real. No offense to anyone.

No even if you disprove without a doubt 100% sure, people can and still believe and keep their faith, Though I'm in no religion People will believe even when faced with the sure answer of it being wrong, they want ot believe. I don't think that we could prove the existance of God, or proof of religions being right(I'm not saying they're wrong though) People will still think that it's wrong for some of the same reasons.

To me Religion and Science( or really everything we know) is to give us comfort in our lives, or atleast that is one of the reasons we look for answers in both.

It all depends on how you define God. There are so many different ideas that disproving one is essentially meaningless, though there are plenty that are simply illogical, even violating the basic law of identity...

If God is supernatural, science can't study it because it's outside the physical realm. Your professor's story is obviously fake, and I'm appalled that she's allowed to spread it.

It'll never be possible because God doesn't exist. Or rather, I refuse to believe there's someone called God.

I don't think they would be able to prove whether God exist anyway.

Who knows... They proven ghost to exist, so why not god...? However, I would rather it be a mystery forever. The only thing that make it/them/he/she (I dont know which xD) to be godly is because many people believe it exist yet it cant be proven. It gives people hopes and beliefs at bad times. If its ever proven, religions might collapse together with the hopes of the believers.
