Also, the strongest connection between science and religion is that they both ultimately rely on blind faith.

Science has more evidence, and science is significantly less stupid, but if you follow its trail to the end you get to blind faith.

I'm sure InBlack will argue with that (and, just so he knows, I'll spell out in his Fisher-Price blocks that my argument is totally independent of anything yuastuav is saying which I haven't bothered reading.)

Ultimately, though, we have no clue what spurred the big bang. We have no clue where matter came from. We don't even have very strong or well-based hypotheses about this. Ultimately, we're putting blind faith in science. But we're doing so because science has accurately proven so much. Our theories on where matter comes from likely are stupid, because our early scientific hypotheses on almost everything is stupid in retrospect, but our belief that science will ultimately explain it isn't (though I think you can make an argument that humanity will never manage to prove or understand where matter came from. And it hardly matters. It doesn't damage our other understandings.)
