I think there is evidence for a non-physical (as we know it) world in astral projection, which has been published in the IEEE. The indication is that our consciousness can exist outside our body to be more specific. Still not proof of even a supernatural world let alone god. If you allow for a non-physical world, then the possibilities really open up. But still only just possibilities.

Another approach is to ask if you can prove that god or the supernatural does not exist. Can you do that. If not, then we are even. Nobody can prove anything. So the meaning and importance of proof fades away. By the way, Goedel has already proven that nothing complex is rigorous in mathematics, which essentially means that we cannot prove anything of real value. So there is no point in requiring a proof. It's like requiring the impossible.

So we are left with guesses as to what is more probable or less probable. The existence of Earth is so highly probable that we can approximate and say that it is certain. The probability of the existence of god or gods or the supernatural is much less, but still possible.
