Proofs of domain

Asking whether God exists arises from an experience of sensible but is not an attempt to assimilate him to the world of sensible experience or physical objects any more than the question whether complex numbers exist is an attempt to establish whether these are natural objects. We can’t want the proofs to justify an experience continuous with the experience of the sensible, as though we could have some Eureka! moment like we had with Black swans, black holes or dark matter which allows us to update physics textbooks with new chapters on divinity.
