>When I was at school learning from our schoolmaster, he always stressed that mankind's brain was not big enough to understand all the mysteries of our religion, which was in this case Roman Catholicism. I think there was a lot of truth in what he said and even as we think we are becoming smarter we are finding the more we learn, the more questions remain unanswered.
This statement just drips of intellectual cowardice. Not only does it discourage the inquisitive and intellectual, but it does injustice to our immense collective mental capacity. With enough intelligence (e.g collective brain power), most problems can be solved.
