Levels of Proof Proposed
A= a material law with precise equations
B= strong causal correlation which we manage
C= very strong indicators that major discoveries are possible in the topic area
D= speculation that merits further attention

I think it can be proven to various levels of satisfaction that
1) our brains are not equipped to comprehensively manage the whole range of survival challenging scenarios which modern knowledge and societies may create

Now C, can be B

2) our brains require periodic, significant periods of rest and "information maintenance" breaks from human technical activities in order to avoid becoming "broken"]
Now D, can be C

3) Issues in life are so multi-dimensional and personal that only transcendent systems such as literature and love can address 1) and 2)

Now D, can be C

4) Aside from any parochial interests about tribes or creeds, the plain-read story of Jesus is valid scientifically in its examples of life's issues, such as personal commitments to strong prayer, love, responsibility and endurance Being a story about love under a hugh number of stressors, including possibly mental health problems (he wouldn't know humanity if he didn't have them).]
