Science "Proves" God Does Not Exist

0 comments
Science cannot prove anything. But it can disprove things. In fact, it is great at disproving things and when it does its job well, it comes really close to proving things WRONG.

Religious people make an argument for their fictional deity by saying science cannot prove God does not exist. But science cannot prove any non-existent things exist. That's not the right question. Science can’t prove Martians do not exist. So what?

But science can DISPROVE that Martians exist with scientific observation and experimentation, quite handily.

The same is true for God. Science can DISPROVE God exists. It’s quite simple really. You just design an observational experiment and run it.

For example…

1. If the Christian God exists, one should observe statistically fewer natural disasters in areas with a high concentration of devout fundamentalist Christians.

2. After repeated observation, no statistical difference in the occurrence of natural disasters is found between Christian dense and Christian sparse geographical areas.

3. Thus the existence of God is disproved.

You conduct several such experiments to strengthen your disproof of God.

Perhaps you do a clinical trial of patients with a horrible disease, giving them all medicine, but telling the Christian ones to pray their diseases away for that extra benefit of prayer to their God. If the Christians die at the same rate as the non-Christians, God is disproved. It’s all quite simple and easy to disprove God.

Anti-Intellectualism and Fundamentalist Christianity

America is an unapologetically anti-intellectual country, as evidenced by its popular culture. It’s an accepted truism.

This explains why fundamentalist Christians thrive so well here, even as they complain about perceived persecution by atheists like me (guilty as charged…they’re dangerous to society!).

Their patently false beliefs are given equal credibility with science and that’s just ridiculous.
