Can we know something that has no yet been prove true?

In this essay I will talk about things that we know that haven’t been proven true. Yes we can know something that has not been proven true. Many people say that they could prove something that has not been proven true through perception and reasoning. I think those people are right because these are the main ways that we could prove things true. The first thing I want to talk about Is God because it is something that we know is true but cannot be proven. The other topic that I will discuss in this essay is on science. Science is something that we know is true but it needs proof.

No one on earth can see God, you don’t know whether he is next to you or far away from you because we cannot see him or imagine how he looks like. When we need help he doesn’t advise us because he cannot talk. We all wear shorts, T-shirts etc. but we don’t know what God wears because we haven’t seen him. He is not visible like all of us. God is something that we believe exists. It’s not necessary that he is a living thing, God could just be an energy that we think looks like us. Faith is always used as "hope", "trust" or "belief" This is all about faith, many people believe that God exists and this is threw their faith.

Science is knowledge; it builds up our knowledge in terms of explanation and predictions about everything in the universe. Science could be explained logically and rationally. Over the past hundreds of years scientists have discovered millions of things e.g. the ozone layer, the earth is round etc. Scientists tell us that the ozone layer is one of the most important layer around the earth because it protects us from heat and also because it absorbs ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Scientists found this out after the invention of a ozone –measuring machine. We have never seen the ozone layer but we believe in what the scientists tell us because they have proved it by taking satellite images, by using their machines. We trust that these scientists are doing a good job. The scientists have convinced us by using a scientific process that can be understood by all of us. They had done a lot of research on the ozone layer before telling us that it exists. They started by using satellites, they got pictures of the layer and started making what their aim was, then they wrote down what materials they needed to make this research successful, they made some graphs to see how much radiation does the layer stop, they started sharing their graphs with different scientists to see if the results matched and then the all came together and started working on the hypothesis. Their entire hypothesis matched so the moved on my concluding that there is something known as the ozone layer and it protects us from ultraviolet radiation. This process took them many years because many scientists left this half way and finally all of them discovered the ozone layer. This is evidence, we could see their research files and believe that the layer exists; we can even see it threw satellite images.

Science and faith is totally different because with science you can prove something right or wrong but with faith you cannot. Faith is when you believe in something weather its true or it’s false. With science you can know weather something exists or it doesn’t because scientists use machines that detect weather things exist or they don’t . Science is based on research and using the right scientific process that I mentioned above while faith is something that cannot be proven true but we know it exists while science is the opposite because in science we can prove if things exist or not.

Science could be used in many different ways for example it could be used when you are arguing with friends about something and you tell your friends something related to the topic you were discussing about and a friend asks you to prove your statement and then you will have to prove your answer by proving and explaining your answer scientifically. Faith cannot be used while studying or while discussing something. It is something that you believe in. Faith is hardly used in any discussions.
