On proving God

I was perusing some boards today and came across a post where an atheist claims that science disproves God. Being both a Christian and a scientist, I found this statement somewhat laughable. God is neither provable nor disprovable. That's the simple truth. That being said, science and Christianity can and do coexist peacefully. God can work through science. Consider, for example, the notion that we are existing in a Martix-like world - living our lives inside a simulator, per se. Would we be aware that our world is indeed simulated? No. Could we reason about, prove, or even comprehend what lies beyond our reality? No. Not without interaction from the "outside". The Bible documents such interaction, but there may be flaws passed down through generations, or other instances of interactions completely undocumented. But that doesn't matter. The possibility of our own world running in such a simulated environment, or even the executor of said simulated environment (namely God) would never be able to be proved or disproved. Whether we choose to believe that others have interacted with the "outside" is completely up to us, but "science" would never be able to reason about such things - only philosophers could.
