Proving There Is A God, Sodom Found (Maybe), and Scientists Reducing Faith

 NewspapersI saw three interesting articles on the Internet today. The first says there is no way to prove there is a God:

“Why God Cannot Be Proven: A Star Trek Argument”

Basically, it claims you can always posit that anything that seems supernatural is actually just a smarter alien using non-supernatural means that seem magical to us.

I would suggest, instead, it fits my saying that “proof is in the eye of the beholder”—that people will not believe what they don’t want to believe. However, in fairness to the writer, proof of an infinite being might itself be infinite, and we have finite brains. We may have no choice but to have faith bridge the gap…

But that faith would still be based on evidence versus the false modern equivication of faith with blind faith.

The second article says they may have found the biblical city of Sodom:

“Possible site of ancient Sodom yields more finds”

A post that also points to this:

“Making the Case for Sodom”

Between the two you’ll see a sudden end and ash…hmmm…

The final article says scientists reduced religious belief by applying electromagnetic radiation to the posterior medial frontal cortex:

“Scientists claim they can change your belief on immigrants and God – with MAGNETS”

Interesting collection of articles, eh? Thoughts?
