Also, I believe I spoke about the untestable nature of God before. Test time. Test light. Test fire. You could probably tell me a lot about
photons and things like this but have you ever scientifically tested any of these things? But yet you regard them as gospel.
I can find a number of books online right now that will show me the full records and documentation for the experiments and research that have
determined today's knowledge about such things. Did you read the last step of the scientific method? Communicate your findings.
have published their results in numerable places and forms. The point being, that if I did
test their findings, I would find that not only
would my results reflect theirs, but that their years of studying such things would be able to explain to me why I got such a result from my
experimentation. Not just what
, but why
. That's the knowledge testing gives us.
Do you get anything like that from your texts? Can you explain the mechanics and the principles at work behind the forces you revere?
Any test done would not produce any results as all are untestable. You can take the remnants of fire and theorize the products of combustion,
which has been done. But any actual test done on fire itself would burn you.
Which is why you no longer put your hand on the hot stove. You had to learn the hard way, didn't you?
You could theorize light and its methods, but could you test it scientifically in any meaningful way? It is clearly there. You live in an
infinitely complexed, perfectly balanced world. You respond from an infinitely balanced and complex machine which makes it possible for you to type
the words you type. If you want signs, they are literally all around you.
Then explain it to me, please. Explain how these signs point to exclusively your god and no other cause. Explain how you arrived at this conclusion,
how you tested it, and exactly what the results were. Oh, but that's right...you just settled for the easiest answer you could find, didn't you?
That's what it means to not test something. It means you jump on the first available solution. That's not very scientific.
