Full Answer

The scientific method depends on repeatable observations and theoretical models that are, at least in principle, subject to disproof. Religious beliefs are almost always framed in such a way as to be immune to such theoretical disproof. Science, by its nature, is unable to test untestable hypotheses or disprove assertions that do not rise or fall with evidence. Quantum mechanics, complex though it may be, is simply not equipped to confirm, refute or even to address the question of God's existence.
