Science shouldn't be the end-all be-all. It is useful and important, however when it comes down to it science is simply a process to understand things to the best of our ability. It also often makes assumptions on fact - for example it was fact that the sound barrier could not be broken until it was. So science is ever changing theory, based on our limited perceptions. To assume that that's all there is is probably being arrogant...after all I'm sure there are some things out there that just can't be understood by the human brain at our current level of intelligence - or ever at all. We have extremely limited perceptions if you think about it. I think it's stupid that people get so worked up about it. This stuff is better left alone. Whenever I get into it I eventually feel attacked just because I know there is a good basis for what I have come to believe but hell if I can explain it right. There's always someone out there to make me feel stupid. And it's annoying when you feel you have made a good point but no one acknowledges that (or just doesn't agree) and simply plows right into trying to prove just how wrong you are. I imagine that most do it to re-affirm their own beliefs. I doubt that most discussions of that nature ever started for the benefit for the other person but for themselves. Which is why they usually end up being something where everyone is talking AT one another but not with one another. Not productive at all. I'm not too fond of conflict, I suppose. I tend to avoid it like the plague but I have a big mouth I'm afraid.
