Philosophical Skepticism

Philosophical skepticism is a basis of skepticism that asserts the rationale behind proving the existence of an all-powerful God is beyond human comprehension.

Because an all-powerful, all-good God, is a deity that lives beyond the confines of humanity, then the natural world cannot sufficiently provide evidence or reason to prove God’s existence.

My question is this:

Will God, as a concept or religion or deity, always remain incomprehensible to humanity?

I agree that in today’s world, given the evidence and logic available, it is beyond doubt that we cannot certainly say God exists. Moreso, the belief aspect is just that: a belief.

Now, I am a skeptic myself. But I do believe that there is a greater power that exists. I simply cannot prove it, and therefore I simply cannot comprehend it either.

But I am quite certain that before modern sciences, humanity could not comprehend the basics of physics, chemistry, or biology.

Gravity existed but was not proved or reasonably explained until an apple fell upon Newton’s head.

Dark matter exists; yet, can we see it?

Just as string theory and parallel universes are simply just that: incomprehensible theories–can we not also lump in the discussion of religion within this realm?

We cannot comprehend God, but I don’t believe that is sufficient enough to prove his non-existence.

Not all existence is comprehended. Existence may exist passively.
