Why hasn't science been able to prove the existence of God?
I'm at a crossroad. Help me through logical answers.
First, determine what you mean by God. Then decide what you would consider proof of existence. Now look for that proof. Or, if you want to be scientific, look for disproof.So far, I haven't come across anyone whose definition and chosen proof have stood up to scrutiny.
God the creator has similarities with Big Bang
I would define god as being the universe

Yes, the big bang claims to have evidence,
but it does not constitute incontrovertible proof
The creation of all the matter in the universe in fractions of a second in some hot big bang, is less plausible than Hoyles ideas happening more slowly over an eternity, with no beginning of time.
The genesis jackanory creation story taking 7 days could equally cite as evidence, the universe as it stands today
The universe exists, therefore Pantheist god exists.
proving the existence of god depends on the definition.

One only needs to look at the world around them to see that only God can create life.

Does the Roman empire still exert an influence today via its religion?
