Let's imagine for a moment, that we have good and at the same time affordable education for everyone. So, everyone knows physics, math, biology, astronomy, chemistry, history, geography, etc. very well. Everyone knows how things (including life) work and where natural laws governing things' behavior come from.

Will we still have someone saying: look, we know things only up to this corner (say, to current limits of knowledge of fundamentals). And we know that from this corner and up things and their behavior are just mathematical consequence of more fundamental things - everywhere we know. Can then someone say: "But, hey, still - god can be just around the corner".

How likely is that what we thought of "sure act of god" just to only later find it to be natural (=mathematical) phenomenon again and again and again will NOT continue? So, how risky is to predict god around next corner (if everyone knows working of nature - physics, biology, astronomy, etc very well)?
