Objections that Self-Destruct: “We Can Only be Certain of Things that Can be Scientifically Proven”

Self-Destruct“The biggest problem I have with religious beliefs is that you can’t really prove whether they’re true or not.

At the end of the day, it can’t be scientifically proven, and we can only be certain of things that can be scientifically proven.”

Statement: “We can only be certain of things that can be scientifically proven.”
