I'm sure there's no solution to the quandry in which we find ourselves. We'll never be able to predict the weather or have answers to important questions. Our machines will become more powerful and far more diverse. We'll be able to mould our enviroment and accomplish tasks that we don't even know need to be done now. We'll probably learn how the pyramids were built and fill in many of the gaps in history.
But we'll never know everything and it's far past time we quit deluding ourselves that we ever will far more than that it's already been accomplished. Yes, science and reason are the only tools we have but they are puny compared to the size of the problem. I believe the world would be a better place if people simply understood that we really don't know so very much more than the great pyramid builders did (don't even know how they did it), but we have far fancier machines. Where their prists (like Imhotep) knew virtually everything known by man our "priests" ALL look a a tiny slice of what's known by man and often can't tell the forest from the trees.
