Do you think there are so many things in the universe that human science will never discover them and the human mind will not be able to understand them?

@dmussi12, heat death limits the time we have.

If by discover, you mean "touch" or "see" everything in the universe, that is not possible. Just can't happen. If you are asking if we have the capacity to understand the natural laws of the universe, that is possible.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T09:38:42.0940593-05:00
I am fairly sure he means the laws of the universe, hence the reason he said understand.
TBR says2015-05-07T09:45:42.3884108-05:00
Well Mathgeekjoe, I qualify that one too. We are very comfortable with laws of nature that remain constant. Nature is mathematically constant. I am not entirely sure, even if we were capable of understanding the entirety of the current construct, that we could understand the why it IS so constant. There really is no good reason for things to remain like this, they just do.

One could argue that as a reason for a god. Something that isn't bound by these physical rules that thus explain why they exist.
TBR says2015-05-07T10:27:13.6245375-05:00
Knew we needed that God in there. Anything is proof of "need for a god" to someone who WANTS a god.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T10:28:06.1788599-05:00
Well it doesn't really make sense to have the physical world the way it is. Why do things even work the way they do?
TBR says2015-05-07T10:28:16.5685931-05:00
Its like the "fine tuning" argument. Its garbage, but sure makes sense when you want it to make sense.
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T10:29:35.5836061-05:00
The fine tuning argument can be debated by proposing the multiverse argument. But even the multiverse argument doesn't explain why the possibility of our universe even exist.
TBR says2015-05-07T10:30:43.0388709-05:00
I would debate fine tuning with you MGJ
Mathgeekjoe says2015-05-07T10:32:53.0041371-05:00
If it was merely the fine tuning argument, I am very sure you would go the route of the multiverse. Now if we were arguing whether the multiverse explains it all, I could debate you.
TBR says2015-05-07T10:40:59.9331797-05:00
I could argue it without multiverse
