One cannot detect ultrasound (>20kHz) with a microphone that can only pick up audible sounds (20Hz-20kHz). [...]

Every theologian worth his salt along with many philosophers, from Plato and Aristotle to Descartes and Kant, attempted to prove the existence of God.  Tomas Aquinas, for instance, offered five “proofs”!  Others, such as Hume and Nietzsche, tried proving the opposite.  Little did they understand that proving the existence or nonexistence of God is a fool’s errand.  There are several reasons for that: 1.            The existence of God cannot be proven because… God doesn’t “exist,” not in the ordinary sense of existence anyway.  One can say that an object exists only so long as it may exist or may not.
