Howdy,

As far as beleifs go I personally am a great beleiver in infinity... that space continues forever outwards, that atoms can be broken down forever inwards.

The reason for this, if there were some superior devised plan for it, would be that we could continue to grow and expand forever never having limits to what we could learn (which I would enjoy very much, not that I'll be around that long).

On the other hand, if there were limitations to the physical unverise we could forever continue to explore ourselves inwardly (if you know that you know everything you know one more thing in and of itself).

Point for point, I don't think you can have faith in science... that's rather a contradiction is it not? We each hold our own visions of the scientific future, but science is a --- science... it just plods right along whether you beleive in it or not no matter what you beleive about it.

-NE
