Examples of Things That Can’t Be Proven Scientifically

“Take the statement: “For something to be true, it must be provable scientifically.” Can that statement be proved scientifically? Can you do an experiment in a lab to demonstrate that it is true? Or how about, “My daughter loves me”? How can that very important statement ever be proven? The fact is, we believe things because they make sense of the world as we see it, not because some outside authority (like scientific proof) says they are true. So the real question is: How does belief or nonbelief in God make sense of the world around us?” -Andrew Wilson, Incomparable: Explorations in the Character of God
