By that logic, wouldn't, "God cannot be proven to exist, so in turn he must not exist." work as well?

Actually the scientific basics on this particular matter go roughly like; If there is no evidence for the existence of something, or evidence of things that can reasonably allow someone to create a testable hypothesis about the existence of something, it is irrelevant to science.

Which isn't the same as saying it doesn't exist so much. Its saying there is no evidence for its existence, and that without any such evidence to research, there is nothing science can do with it.

Therefor the entire issue of the existence of god falls not under science, but rather under philosophy.

I could easily say the same thing about emotis as actual creatures. Try again.

Is your god's existence in any way distinguishable from no god at all?

Science doesn't work like that.
Hell, nothing works like that, apart from wishful thinking in children.

You cannot disprove kappas live in my natatorium's swimming pool, therefore it's infested with kappas.
You can't disprove that rhinoceroses fire lasers out of thier nostrils, therefore they do.
Hey, this is fun!

Man's unfailing capacity to believe what he prefers to be true rather than what the evidence shows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for a caring Universe which will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest of doubts. God has not been proven not to exist, therefore he must exist.

Sad that people actually think this way. Idiot parents to blame, I suppose.

And there were WMDs in Iraq. And Obama is really a gay Muslim atheist. And climate change is really a giant conspiracy to but gay teachers in private schools.

And teapots orbit the sun. Basic science is something you are obviously oblivious about.
