Who knows? That doesn't mean that God is a valid substitution, though.

But the assumption "we don't know, therefore God did it" is scientific and rational? Saying "we don't know" isn't a religious statement or one of faith, no matter how hard you try and and equate science with religion.

But science is honest.... and in fact it does say just that.... "I don't know yet".... but it adds the caveat:- "But I have a pretty good idea based on my observations and experiments".....
The difference between science and religion is that religion does not even try to understand it.... and I cannot live in a world with a complete lack of inquiry and investigation... to understand is to be enlightened...
