Will science ever be able to prove if God does or does not exist?

You must first come to an agreeable definition of God before one can prove or disprove. So, no.

Plus, in science, we can only support or not support a theory. We can't really prove or disprove.

God is not meant to be "proven" by scientists. It just doesn't work that way.

You can't prove or disprove a belief. That's why it's called a belief.

The people who say yes are as foolish as the next theist.

But what if science already has provided proofs that make god seem like the most likely possibility?

Science has already provided several evidences which point to God as the most likely reason for their existence.

Pick one, we could talk about the creation of the universe, fine tuning, morality, plenty of fun stuff. If you want to know more, look into Christian apologetics.

God is compatible with current understanding, but there are plausible explantations to phenomena without God. Take universal constants- other universes with different constants can exist but without us. Morality is present in chimps.

This could be a long discussion. Not ideal for something with 255 char limit. just as science can't disprove God, It also can't prove God exists.

Well it's almost impossible to prove a negative. But on the off chance that a god actually exists, it's possible that could be proven.

It is not possible to conclusively prove a negative. For example the preponderance of evidence indicates that there are no unicorns, no bones have been found, a live one never captured, no photos etc. we are reasonably sure there are none.

It is impossible to prove that nothing exists.Maybe alfredo getti god knows where nothing is.So can have all the non- existent proof you want that none exist. But knowing there is no proof gives=odds of finding proof the unknown exists.

We could wait for the second coming of jesus in 2443 according to Futurama and then ask him
But really
We can disprove everything that can be disproven in the bible on earth, but what happens after death, we can only assume for now

But we can't prove are existence is real. We have no knowledge of what we exist of. Nothing is proven. So it can't be disproven its just one theory or another. You can calculate the odds.

They already have. It's called evolution.

God could have made evolution.

No. As strongly as I think that evolution is the process that resulted in the diversity I life on earth, and as much as I think there is no god, evolution does not - and cannot - prove that no god exists.

If we are evolving why are we still so stupid? We can barely feed ourselves or figure out what to do with our trash. Cleaning is too hard. Wouldn't it it be nice if we could at least understand a human language by now so we could learn from advice.

We're still evolving, but we have circumvented natural selection in a number of ways.

Whether a higher power does or doesn't exist, isn't really something that science can prove or disprove. Regardless of the facts which point to his non-existence, belief in a higher power is about faith - rather than fact, in my opinion.

No. And nor would I want science to. I want science to pursue science and knowledge, not fantasy.

"Stop disproving my religion! I like thinking its true!"
This is kinda an important thing to do

Poorly worded what I just said
