If Science Is To Explain God

If science is to explain God
then a human must do it.
If science is to explain God
then unity within creation
need be explained.
Unity in creation would require
a unified field theory
which would unite
everything.

If everything is united
no person could view us
from outside.
Thus, according to
Godel`s Incompleteness Theorem
the united field theory
could not be proved.

Thus science proves
God is not provable
but science also cannot prove
that God does not exist.

Like Einstein could not prove
the Ether
and he called it "superfluous"
to his numbers
whether or not
Ether could be proved.

If science is to explain God
then science must accept
that God can not be proved.
Faith is the only way
to honestly accept God.

Using the unified field theory
to explain the details of creation
must allow
the proof to be in the pudding.
The language
of quantum physics,
of possibility and probability,
can replace
the scientific requirement
of proof.

If God is to be explained
by scientists.

"However, if we do discover
a complete theory,
it should in time
be understood in broad priciple,
by everyone,
not just a few scientists."
from: A Brief History of Time
Stephen Hawking
