"...Regardless of one's religious faith, or more specifically, regardless of the level of one's intellectual brilliance, we all limit our potential as individuals if we stop at the bounds of our own rationality." Therein lies the problem. I believe it was Daniel Boorstin who stated it best when he said "The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance. It is the illusion of knowledge"

Great stuff as always Kent

Thanks, Leonardo, for the Boorstin quote. I like the way he describes "illusion of knowledge" as an obstacle to discovery.

Thanks, Marvin, for the generous comment!
