Heaven is his chosen, er, "retirement community." Obviously I have no
method, scientific or otherwise, of proving or refuting heavenly claims. My
point was that simply because you can't decisively refute a claim, does not
exempt the claim from being a fraud.

If you make affirmative claims which can neither be proven or disproven, I
think that opens you up to possible charges of fraud, particularly where you
are making lots of money by persuading people that your unprovable claims
are true.
