← Does science have all the answers?

Religion and science have a common ancestor: ignorance. Whilst science uses this as starting point and through the scientific method illuminates our world and universe, religion is stuck at the first hypothesis that they defend or obscure using twisted language and logic. Religion maybe able to provide answers to question that are currently unanswerable by science, but history shows that their share of answered questions is shrinking and that their answers have been mostly wrong. I would sooner live with an unanswerable question and search for an answer based on evidence than rely on the 'revealed truth' supplied by a modern day shaman who speaks to a fictitious bignobodaddy.
