It is utterly unscientific to catagorically deny the existence of God just because God's existence cannot be proven. The theory of evolution is just that, likewise are so many other elements of scientific western thought (say in physics for example... the THEORY of relativity), this does not make it foolish to subscribe to these views. So why is subscribing to the existance of God foolish, just because we lack proof one way or the other. If it is, then asserting as an absolute known truth that God does not exist makes you absurd, because likewise as God's existance depends on faith, so does God's non-existance... there is no proof that can reproduced in a lab one way or the other.

Most of western civilisation is based on these faith based theories, like electronics (much of which isdependant on i so I have been told) etc... So why the bee in your bonnet about God... the most scientific position you can assert is that you don't know, but believe.....

In peace,

Abdul Rahman.
