But no laws of nature were broken. What happens is based on the laws of nature, or rather what exists in nature. It's just that according to present science we know less than 1% of what exists in nature. I am refering to dark matter and energy, which make of 99% of the universe, and of which science knows next to nothing.

Doesn't it bother you that science knows so little about the universe. Not only does it not know most of what now exists, it also has no idea where it all came from. Science does not even understand the most immediate and for me important thing in our fragile lives, our consciousness.

I predict that just as LDS became unsatisfactory as an explanation of the meaning of life, science will also eventually become unsatisfactory, because science does not provide meaning. That is something you have to invent for yourself. I venture to say that it cannot be found in science. I must admit that I do not find it in any one religion either. So I have more or less invented my own faith, one that provides meaning for me.
