Scientists are just people who are completely dissatisfied with their place in the universe, and are continually seeking information so they can put the big picture together.
Philosophers are people who are people on the path to enlightenment...learning to accept what they know and what they have by trying to weed out the redundant information that scientists uncover. IE: Scientists can build the entire border of a puzzle by understanding how our physical reality works, but their greed will never allow them to find the pieces to the middle of the puzzle.
"An molecule is made of atoms, which control every element in the universe, which build of each other to create organic and inorganic compounds...and blah blah blah". But they will never be able to say where the atom came from, or where the center of the universe is that the Big Bang would have had originated from, or what the point of any of it is.
