What I find interesting are comparisons of God to to science. In its purest form, science is simply our tool for observing the world around us. God is a "person" (at least in most of the dominant religions). As creator he is unique and by nature outside of our existence. Science is incapable of "proving" God.

That being said, I don't think its impossible to know that he exists. When the Titantic was found, researchers found it by following the debris trail found on the bottom of the ocean. Similarly, the question should be asked, has God left a debris trail to point toward his existance?

To separate myth from fact we use science and history to either confirm or debunk an event. Some say, "If God exists, why doesn't he show himself to me?". Well, if he has already done that, all we've got to go on is historical records and witnesses to his arrival.

The Bible records such events. It is then in the realm of faith by which we finally conclude (or begin) our knowledge of God. Science can only take us so far.

Thoughts, comments?
