Issues beyond the scope of science

You often hear it said that science has disproved God because it has found no evidence apart from people’s belief. But that’s like saying that science has disproved love because it’s found no evidence other than what people claim to experience. The fact is that science works by experiments. It watches how things behave and forms its conclusions based on experiments consistently doing the same thing.
But when it comes to deep metaphysical issues like what caused the Big Bang and began the process whereby everything that now is came out of nothing, we are dealing with issues beyond the scope of science because there’s no experiment you can do to test it; except by looking at those whose lives are filled with meaning because of faith in whatever or whoever it is that stands behind it all, and for whom our innermost beings yearn.
