Well, there are things science can't explain. They can look at a living cell and they have no idea how or why it's alive. There is an energy in living creatures science just cannot pinpoint or explain no matter how much they try.
That might not be concrete proof God exists, but it is proof that there is more out there other than cut and dried laws of science.
Not necessarily. This is assuming there exists permanently inexplicable portions of the universe that we can never tally up, but I disagree. Given enough time, I believe we’ll figure it all out. Once we’re at a exponential rate for the sum knowledge of the species, and I think we’re close or at that already, it’s only a matter of time.
And this is a obvious direction to take here. We can look at the cell and say the DNA in the nucleus is writing all the instructions for the cell, the mitochondria are generating the energy for the system, etc.
We can explain how all the base function work that keep the cell alive and moving…but what makes it GO?
The same can be said of large-scale organisms such as ourselves…what actually makes us go? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vital_force
‘a doctrine that the functions of a living organism are due to a vital principle distinct from biochemical reactions’
‘a doctrine that the processes of life are not explicable by the laws of physics and chemistry alone and that life is in some part self-determining’
Perhaps this does not mean something that is excluded from scientific scrutiny or explanation, but perhaps this is a whole new field within science that we have yet to tap. Right now it’s more metaphysics than anything, but just because we can’t explain it yet doesn’t mean we won’t be able to explain it at all.
And just because we can’t explain it yet doesn’t automatically make it god. I believe it was scientist Richard Dawkins that said doing just that; passing off the unexplainable as god and therefore unknowable to us, is the equivalent of throwing in the towel.
