Let's give humanity a chance – divinity can look after itself
In response to a spate of recent over-confident letters, I should like to suggest that we cannot prove the existence of a God; we can give reasons why our convictions take us in one direction or the other.
Those who appeal to the methods of science have got their science badly wrong. Other than in mathematics, we do not talk about proof but of varying levels of probability.
The notion that nothing can be said to be true unless it can be verified in experience now resides in the museum of bad ideas, as such an assertion is self-defeating. The belief that only what is verifiable in experience can be claimed to be true is not itself amenable to such verification.
