Each answer leads to new questions

It’s become common to hear people ridicule belief in God as superstition, out of place in an age of science. And yet the idea that the Universe is merely the result an infinite series of mathematically unbelievable accidents is just as much an act of faith. Scientific evidence can only take us so far in our desire to discover the reason behind our existence because it is always incomplete. Doctor Werner Von Braun, the famous physicist responsible for putting man on the Moon summed it up very well when he said that for every answer science discovers, four new questions open up. It’s intellectual arrogance indeed to assume that the answer to the biggest question of all, not just how it all happened but why it happened, can fit neatly into the tiny confines of current human knowledge.
