    Being a physicist, I'd like to think that this borders on the truth. However,
    the recent discoveries (?) of Dark Matter and Dark Energy have put cosmologists
    further into the Dark (bad pun) about what truly comprises the cosmos. I am not
    trying to advocate a "god of the gaps", but rather that it is not at all clear
    that science will, ever be capable fo defining the universe in terms we can
    comprehend. We have been lucky so far, but it is difficult to extrapolate that
    to completeness.

    If anything, the fact that we humans _can_ comprehend the cosmos speaks for the
    existence of a creation that involves more than just particles and energy ---
    not the converse.
