Well, Rich can't do that anymore than YOU can prove there is a God. A few points for you..

1. The scientific method can be used to PROVE things. This is done via hypothsis, theory, experiment and duplication. It CANNOT however be used to DISPROVE remarkable claims. AND, no real scientist has ever made the claim that there is no god. At best one could say it is not "provable".

2. When a claim is made it is the burden of the claimer to make the proof. So, if you say there is a god (for example), you would be the one to make that proof.

3. The basic premise of the Christian religion is FAITH. Thus no PROOF will be offered by God. You must have faith. If proof were available, heaven wouldn't be so tough to get into, would it? Please note that Jesus told Satan this same thing. He would not do parlor tricks to to prove he was the son of God.

4. There is a thing called Occam's Razor. It is often used in science. You should read up on this too.

So maybe instead of shouting at Rich, you should read a science book and your Bible a bit closer.
