I saw a UFO , I don’t know what it was.
I believe in God but I cannot prove he exists .
I do not believe in God but I cannot prove there is no God.
I don’t see any way to keep talking about the above statements after the period.
However, a A scientist could begin to explore the environment or the space above earth to hypothesize ,using the scientific method to begin to unravel nature , which has been done very well for hundreds of years.
It is said that theologians Can also move past the period. If they use individuals or institutions alive at the time who claimed to have observed events . But it is a fact that personal accounts of events are the most unreliable in the scientific community.
Theologians can also use the written word of individuals from the time. To claim proof Of events, but the writers are human, so written works are subject to personal interpretation, motivation , level of intelligence and what state of mind is the writer in at the time .
I can see only one way past the period.
Can anyone move past the period another way ?? ( with out resorting in hocus-pocus or magic )
