No. We don't know the end (if there even is one) of the trail.

I mean right now. Right now the end of that tail has to be taken on faith. Sure, 100,000 years in the future that tail may be closed and we may know everything about everything.

But today we know nothing about most things. We're still discovering new matter. We have to have faith that things like the origin of matter can be explained by science.

Anyways, I don't have a problem with belief in higher power or alien conspiracies or tales of sasquatches and yetis. They are by themselves harmless. When religious people get together and start pushing agendas, though, we have a serious problem. Doctrines professing either faith or reason/logic are diametrically opposed. They can't coexist forever. And the day faith wins over thought is the day the human race effectively begins to wither and die.

Entirely. This is why I hate Dawkins, despite having extremely similar beliefs as him (or lack of beliefs, whatever) about as much as I hate all the religious fanatics RollinThundr and others here have accused me of being biased against.

I do appreciate that, in the span of 5 months, I've been called a god-hater and a god-lover at different times on this board.
