That is not what I said.
So you're saying... that the scientific "how" is fueled thanks to the religious/metaphysical "why"?
Nor that. I said that metaphysics has nothing to do with science. Nor does it have anything to do with the topic of this thread.

You mean get out of the solar system by hopping on a rock that will take 23,000 years to reach the edge of the solar system 2 light years away?
