Has Science Proven There is No God?

“There is no God” is not a scientific finding, but rather a philosophical commitment to the denial of what cannot be seen or measured.

“There is a God” is not a scientific finding either, but rather a philosophical commitment to the affirmation that human life, intelligence, reason, purpose, morality, and all material is best explained and understood by recognizing that there is an intelligent Creator who made it so, and that brute naturalism, with no underlying intelligence, purpose, or will, is incapable of explaining any of it, including itself.

Brute material explains nothing, nor can it. Why? Because “explain” is a term that requires intelligence, interpretation, reason, and the ability to assign meaning. Brute material in itself can do none of this. Intelligence requires the “stuff” of the mind, and this is not explicable by simply pointing out that there are chemical processes going on in the grey matter of the brain. Thinking is bigger and greater than the sum of material parts, else a dead body should still think. To reduce thinking to mere material, chemical processes commits a fallacy of the worst kind, for it redefines who we are as human beings at our very core. This is why what we believe about where we came from matters.
