    Well I've always maintained that I don't have sufficient knowledge to be certain of most
    things (in an absolute sense) so maybe this is a fallout from that. All I can say is that so
    far Science has been good at what it is supposed to do but how far that can go I have no
    idea. If that's what you see as faith then I can only disagree.

    See ya
