You will know (and even experience) that God exists if this framework is true or if this understanding is practical (including psychological utility).

IF we understand "science as the study of the Divine", then as an act of religious devotion we want to study God or learn more about God all the more; such powerful emotions provoking productivity and innovation no doubt evolve or advance the field!

Since this is the most practical framework to understand the notion of God and of science; God does indeed exist! Q.E.D.

I'd go for no.8 ..... Plain English, devoid of pretentious bullshit.
The kind of knowledge that Trump voting toilet cleaners would understand - but not pragmetic - we don't want us no pragmetic shite.

⇒(∑E=Ek+Ep)∧(E=mc^2)∧(E=ħω/2)∧(P=∫∇Edv), therefore there is conservation of energy, it cannot be created nor destroyed, it is therefore eternal; and from mass-energy equivalence, it is immanently omnipresent, and from zero-point energy, it is transcendently omnipresent, and infinite; and from power-integral it solves the omnipotence paradoxes: For example, it cannot create a finite rock that it infinite cannot lift, and it cannot destroy itself, power is the transformation of energy not the destruction of energy or typos that plebs will mock.

Stop the Holy See men!
