Hello there.
Well how do you prove that God exists? One answer is to drop dead and see for yourself! Seriously,
we can not use science to establish the existence of something that exists beyond the realms of space and time, assuming that God is outside
the creation. Application of our knowledge is limited to our universe alone. We can determine the conditions of the universe at a fraction of a second after the big bang event but can`t say anything at T=0, and forget negative time!

I once had this discussion with a lebenese engineer many years ago. When I asked him a question about God`s existence, his response was to accept it as an Axiom. Most of us are familier with geometric axioms. They are accepted as true, even though they are not proved to be true!
