Several centuries ago, despite the widely held view by billions of people that the world was flat, Galileo believed it was round and was persecuted. It has been established the world is round, vindicating the loner,Galileo.Today billions of people believe in religion while atheists, who are in the minority, hold contrary view. The question is would atheist be proven right one day?

I don't think a time limit exists for a theist to scientifically prove Sky Daddies exist. It would be nice if there was one though. Then we could just get rid of all this buffoonery.

You cannot prove an unfalsifiable hypothesis. Likewise you cannot disprove it, hence unfalsifiable.

You can prove that the Earth is round, in fact it was done so many years before Galileo by a Greek (probs. Pythagoras, but no greek philospher thought otherwise at about 500 BCE) using basic trig. theory. The maths was there for over two thousand years and we still fell back into flat earth-ness becauseand some stupid desert goat farmers who thought that some stupid book was the end of the arguement. Stupid is catching; the dark ages in europe is proof of that.
