Dear Bruno, a brilliant statement.
I use the more polite word *'agnosticism'* for /'ignorance'/.
In our 'absence of knowledge' (how 'bout that?) we try hard to develop
some *faith* in a setup explaining /_'us',_/ 'our world', 'whatever
happens' (and why not) etc. based on the ever increasing content of
our 'model' we hold in our faith for the world over the millennia.
Yours is based on arithmetic (numbers), mine on a "beyond model
infinite complexity", Roger's on "God"(?) and Richard's on a physical
view(???). All poorly developed belief systems, in spite of a
technology seemingly so efficient recently. A big almost.
Nobody has 'access' to the *real stuff*, - if there is such at all.
Worldviews are individual mini-solipsisms, personally different.
Science accepts opinions (measured-explained-reasoned questionably)
of honest former scientists taught in schools. Religion accepts the
Bible(?) etc. sources for answers, - both upon hearsay.
Then come emotions and 'screw-up' the world.

I particularly don愒 feel comfortable talking about subjects like
this in this group. But belief, and shared beliefs, is an
irreductible component of what we call "reality".
Separating science and religion makes both science and religion
into pseudo-science and pseudo-religion.
There is no science, there is only people able to stay calm in
front of ignorance, I think.

I have no conflict being a scientist when I deal with
science, and being
a Christian when I deal with the Bible.
Or with science when I deal with science and with aesthetics
I visit an art museam. Or go to a concert.
Or with being a scientist when I deal with the Big Bang
and being a Christian when I read Genesis. Two different
accounts, from two different realms, of the same event.
Science has its own realm of validity in the realm of facts,
but has no place -not even a foothold-- in the world of
The difference between a fool and a wise man is in knowing
