So far you seem to write mostly filler. I appreciate the big words and grandiose statements 'cause I use them too. :) However, you're not really making any points. Or, more accurately, not defending them. You see no difference between Alex's dogma and that of a fundamentalist Christian? Why? Your argument seems to be that if anyone holds an opinion about anything, they are as pig headed as the next guy. Wrong. A scientist doesn't make leaps of faith. A scientist looks at what he doesn't know, and makes guesses, but no certainties. There is no faith there. A religious person looks at what he doesn't know, and assigns that portion of reality to God in a convenient way to cover up his lack of knowledge.

There is a difference.
