It's not that the sentiment isn't appreciated, matt2dlg --- it's just the way things are in the world at large. I don't see the posts in this thread as demeaning in any way (at least in terms of intention).
To some, science is where it's at. And where science's ability to explain certain things comes up short, that's one man's mysticism or religion while it's another man's acknowledgment as to the limits of current science.
What I'm getting at is there's more than one viewpoint in the world (right or wrong, that's not to be decided here).
