The cosmos doesn't always behave the same
The Bible teaches us about Christ. “We learn what he did: he preached and taught, drew large crowds, performed miracles. It tells us that he was crucified, that he died, and that he rose from the dead. Some of the teachings most central to Scripture and to the Christian faith tell us of concrete historical events; they therefore tell us of the history and properties of things within the cosmos. Christ died and then rose again; this tells us much about some of the entities within the cosmos. It tells us something about the history, properties, and behavior of his body, for example: namely, that it was dead and then later on alive. It thus tells us that some of the things in the cosmos behaved very differently on this occasion from the way in which they ordinarily behave. The same goes, of course, for the Ascension of Christ, and for the many other miracles reported in Scripture.”---

I believe that the cosmos behaved differently on the occasion of Christ’s death and resurrection, as well as many other “miracles” that are presented in the bible. This belief goes beyond reason and beyond human ability to understand, but that doesn’t mean I have to come to the conclusion that there is no God. It simply means I believe. I can’t prove scientifically in a controlled environment that it happened or that it didn’t happen, I just believe that it is true. John 3:16 says that whoever believes (not reasons) shall not perish, but have eternal life.
Science is just an attempt to understand and there is nothing wrong with that. But science doesn’t understand how things will ALWAYS behave either. For example, watch this: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=414923056147040970&q=what+the+bleep+do+we+know&hl=en
Just because we don’t always understand how things behave, like how Christ was resurrected, doesn’t mean we should come to a quick conclusion that it’s impossible and thus there is no God. We should simply conclude that we don’t understand. Not understanding doesn’t mean we cannot still believe that it is somehow possible. And if we believe that at some point in time, mankind will eventually understand, for example, the mystery presented in the video above, then that is exercising what the Bible defines as faith: “est autem fides sperandorum substantia rerum argumentum non parentum” Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen –Hebrews 11:1 So why not put your faith ability into believing that Christ will give you eternal life?
