Of course it can. It can prove that any religion is true. Here's the method. Select any religious text in random. Select a few verses and twist their meanings so that they vaguely resemble modern discoveries. Claim that those discoveries were predicted in the text eons before scientists discovered them. And behold, the religion you chose has been scientifically proven, regardless of the fact that it might contain numerous inconsistencies. Don't agree with me? Who cares, nearly every religious fanatic is implying this 4 step method to scientifically prove their religion.

and what if a text inspired us to a new discovery?

Number one, which discovery are you talking about? Number two, even if some text inspires someone to discover something, the credit of the discovery goes to the discoverer. Inspiration can come from anything.Greek mythology speaks about Ikerus who flies too close to she sun. Jules Verne wrote about aeroplanes and submarines centuries before they were invented. And he gave great details of the machanisms used, not just 'Give power and you will fly' or 'man shall walk under water'. But still the credit for the discovery goes to the Wright brothers, not Jules Verne. So we can just give the writer some kudos for imagination. And imagination is something that human beings have in their possession for eons.

in your main response you talked about twisting the meaning of verses to claim .......etc then i asked, what if a text inspired us to a new discovery? then you asked me about the discovery i was talking about !!!! then you replied to talk about the credit of the discovery !!! I mean that "true verses inspires us to true things", and that is applying to everything, but I'm talking about verses as it is our topic for discussion. I'm not talking about credit of discovery!!!

Honestly..No I dont think so for a couple of reasons....First off being that all religions are created by man so there is no science to work with IMO and secondly the reality is IMO is that ALL religions are true to whomever follows them..christianity is true for the christians, judaism is true for them, wicca is true for them adn so on..There is NO ONE TRUE religion..because they are all true

Science does not touch upon the metaphysical and supernatural. It deals in measurable, testable, and material aspects of the natural world. Religion is mostly thee belief in supernatural, with a hint of ethics and history thrown here and there. The two are entirely separate. If, however, you mean could science prove a certain event claimed to have happened in a religion really happened - it's possible, but so far I have yet to here of "religious" events ever happening.

No. Faith is the act of believing in the unseen and the unknowing, believing in that which cannot be proved. Without even being able to prove there is a god, you cannout jump over that to prove which is the true god, the true religion. Maybe in the far future, science may come up with some way to observe that which is God, but what would happen to religion? And if its not your religion. Do you believe in that final proof. Or claim it is false or a conspiracy? I beieve it would be unwise to try to find concrete evidence of God, something tangible, something that you could actually pick up and see. Faith is all we have, and should be all we need.
