If one observes a phenomenon that that is "impossible" there are at least three possibilities:
1) it is an illusion -- not the realm of science because the event did not happen.
2) it is a phenomenon that science cannot yet explain -- it is in the realm of science if it is a phenomenon that it reproducible, at least in a statistical sense. If it isn't reproducible then it becomes impossible to observe and falls out of the realm of science because science is based on observation. Maybe the event falls into 1 or 3.
3) it is a supernatural event -- not the realm of science because science can only study natural processes.
Your first statment implies you know the true nature of God, which you do not and therefore makes the statement completely bunk, Let me ask you, have we ever actually witnessed the creation of a universe? I mean literally watched it from beginning to end? Would you not consider the creation of this universe to be in the realm of science? We can study this universe and everything in it from a purely scientific aspect and still not rule out what you consider to be "supernatural" roots to it all. At leat not yet.
