28. So what does your logic say? "it has SOME capacity"?

 

To fill what void? Philosophy and science requires that truths be proven, (religion: not so much, not at all, really) or they are left up to the individual, not the state to proclaim.

If you don't think a suggestion of ignorance "mass stupidity" can apply to the questions we cannot answer, why are you insisting that religion, rather than the unanswered questions of both science AND religion deserve different than equal status in a governing body that favors religion over science in any settling of the dipute, in any preference one over the other?

If BOTH science and religion have a "void to fill", why is religion offered a preference over science's admitted void of answers? Let me hear your argument for one over the other, then tell me which gets preference today in the USA.
