"A scientist cannot scientifically say there is no god."

While true, it misses out the point that there are many things they can say. For example a sientist can comment on burden of proof. And burden of rational definition for that matter.

Before you can demand proof that a house/universe isn't infested with invissible pink unicorns/god, you can ask for reassonable proof that such a creature does or even can exist.

And just to remind people, the film endded with spectacular public physical evidence (the anomalus industrial light show) that *something* had happened. It's just a pity the writers forgot about it two minutes later.
