God is Not a Scientific ‘Hypothesis’

I cannot understand the natural theology of Kiruv organizations, such as Aish Hatorah and Hidabroot.

Yeshayahu Leibowitz has said this forthrightly, of course, but so has Rabbi Jonathan Sacks:

For Judaism, the search for religious certainty through science or metaphysics is not merely fallacious but ultimately pagan. To suppose that God is scientifically provable is to identify God with what is observable, and this for Judaism is idolatry.
