I've investigated it and found it to be accurate. Nobody can prove historical events, but what can be supported, is.
You and several other Christians claim this and yet they're never able to provide any real evidence or anything we can test.
Science has actual testable evidence. Science is based purely on the evidence, people make hypotheses and use the evidence they find to drive them into testable theories. What the bible presents at best is a hypothesis, ideas about the world that are untested. The tests in science are HEAVILY documented. Hypotheses have to be tested heavily before they are considered a theory and even then the hypothesis may change or be forced to adapt based on new evidence, heck, a good theory can be adapted based on new evidence.
The problem with religious claims is that they're static. People rather than trying to revolve their claims around the discovery of new evidence they try to revolve the evidence around their claims and it just doesn't work that way. It's why I have more respect for Christians who'll accept science for what it is and say they believe in God and rather than claiming their belief it based around hard evidence (because they know it's not) they accept that the reason they believe is because it's their faith. They have faith in God's existence. I'm pretty sure it's what the bible asks of you too. I find it incredibly disingenuous when people try to fit the scientific method around religion, it's like trying to wear a size 6 when you're a size 13, no matter how hard you push, you're not going to make that shoe fit.
It seems this attitude derives from people disliking the challenge science places, so rather than looking at its value, people try to bring it to the same level as religion, either by using psuedo science or suggesting science itself is faith-base or misusing the word 'theory'. What it actually says to me is "I'm threatened by science, so I am going to play games so that I don't actually have to listen to anybody". This is why I have more respect for those who agree that their faith is indeed just that, faith. What their position says to me is that their faith is strongest, why? Because they're able to accept the science without it hurting their belief in God. In the cases of the Christians I know, they're able to have faith despite being critical thinkers. To me, this makes them much better Christians. Okay, they ignore the parts about killing homosexuals, but they're willing to accept that the bible was written by primitive men and not God.
But regardless, all science receives the same scrutiny when testing hypotheses and theories, be it testing cures for aids or testing the evidence for evolution. Some tests bring back results quicker than others.
But I don't see how what Seti does is science fiction, they're just looking for evidence for life other than our own, it hasn't yet claimed it has the evidence, nor does it suggest we are alone. We simply don't have enough evidence to suggest either. It is very interesting how you're dismissing one set possibilities due to lack of evidence, but accepting another than lacks evidence. I accept the possible of all that hasn't been proven or disproven, but just because I accept the possibility doesn't mean I think they all have the same probability, I would actually put deity pretty low on the list and extra terrestial life much higher.
However, if there IS evidence for this deity you believe in, present it. Many Christians before you have tried, but never actually managed to do so. If you had such conclusive evidence, it would be a major scientific breakthrough and I am certain many of the Christian scientists that are out there would happily peer review. Plus the numerous non-Christian ones. It would be fantastic to find out who's right in the end. I sure as hell would love to know.
