The quote is ill used and is essentially a platitude. If you think that quote applies to science then I honestly pity you. I cannot seriously even consider an utterance like that congruent with the scientific pursuit of knowledge. But let me break it down for you so you can understand:

"all the answers it needed" - Oh really? please go to any research institute or something like that. Go to each research lab. Ask them why they are researching. Oh please do that.
"assumed would be solved at any moment" - Same as above
"all believed their ancestors were simplistic and deluded" - Really? So we look back upon our earliest ancestors, whom with no knowledge: controlled fire, built cities, tamed animals, made buildings, developed language and math (and all the things following)? Every time I hear and read anthropological publications (in context of early humans and ancestry), I cannot be anything but awed. The idea you have (if I imagine it correctly is a large fancy ball room with 18th century nobles talking about savages in the wild) on how science represents our ancestry, and all life for that matter, is flat our wrong. When you study something scientifically there is an inherent respect alongside it.

So you are saying you know the limit of what science and math can do? If something exists, it exists. Science observes things that exist. There might be things we can't observe and thus cannot speculate accurately on whether they exist or not. HOWEVER, it does not mean we can't in the future. I wonder if you are even cognizant of your own hypocrisy. If scientific measurements of something cannot be ever, no matter what, measured and deduced then it means it does not exist in a way that would affect anything in the universe.

You say science is arrogance? That is an oxymoron. Are you not the one that claims special knowledge? Are you not the one telling us what we are capable or not capable of? Yes. You. Are.
Are we? No we we only show evidence. Support for our claims, in every sense of the way, while you say, "I just know". Well I'm sorry, I don't know. And I won't claim knowledge unless I see and understand how it looks/works like.

Those who place the lowest standard for knowledge are the most ignorant of all. Knowledge is power. Knowledge is the conduit, rope, and connection to reality. The way I think of it is: I want that rope to be made from adamantium, not fairy dust and delusions.

Your health, home, job, society, and lifestyle would not even remotely be the same as it is without science. The modern world, and all our power, is derived from science. Show a little more respect to the force and discipline that has lifted an entire species above the rest (on Earth) both metaphorically and physically. There is no personal truth. That's just the last level in the bunker of a deluded mind.

I'm willing to believe literally ANYTHING, as long as it can be proven scientifically; not only by my senses, it's not enough, but by as many collaborating people and extensive independent validation.

          First of all, I do not like to be spoken to in a disrespectful manner. I give everyone respect in here and expect the same. I don't know whom you think you are but do not speak to me this way. I am not stupid. I am a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner and have a Masters so... I never  tell anyone what I do in here but if you want to get on a high horse then...You really need to tone done your speech and have a reasonable way of batting ideas back and forth. Speaking like this in this forum will only make you enemies. I feel I am a nice person and do not stand for rudeness. Have a good day.

Right so it's OK to be ignorantly disrespectful? You haughtily claim understanding of "special personal truths" and even assert what the limitations of science is, use non-contextual quotes, and demand respect for just believing in the things you do?

I respect the laws of free-speech and thought. I respect your right to have them because I want them too. The idea that a person is deserving of respect and based on that their beliefs/opinions must be respected too is absurd. You can believe anything you want, in fact I encourage you, but if it's stupid or just ignorant don't be surprised if I don't respect you for it. The same goes for myself. I say what I think and say it how I mean it. Are you that emotionally fragile that I need tell you I respect your ideas, "Oh, Robbie333 you know what I can see where you are coming from but let's just say we agree to disagree.", all the while I think that what you say is stupid? You may sound respectful, but I highly doubt that you actually are. You know why? Because you only respect the things you agree with while insult others ignorantly. You don't consider the insult insulting because you don't respect the institution in the first place.

"There are things for me that science cannot and will not answer. *insert paragraph of wishy-washy new age mysticism or some other religious muttering*. end with quote from celebrity". The "there are things science cannot answer" is a religiously constructed phrase that undermines the public opinion, and something too many people are willing to accept. Used when science was but a fledgling and when "magic" was more dominant. Science does not have all the answers yet it's the only discipline that has actually answered some of the biggest questions we had, and will answer in the near and far future.

I find that the only people who are overly cordial, respectful, and demand the same from others are people with weak ideas. Any sign of danger they jump behind "respect" and all of a sudden anything you say is invalid because they are insulted by it.

         I have met you before. Many of you. Arrogant, angry and narcissistic. In the beginning my claim of science not being able to answer all was and is my opinion. I am not "New Age". I was educated using a scientific thought process. I wholly believe in the science of our realm and almost all can be explained by math and science. My only error--evidently--was allowing a 2% doubt in science and math explaining anything. I felt this a very reasonable guess. Get off of your soapbox and  quit pounding your chest. You are not omni potent. As far as respect and my asking for this in return being a " weakness" this is where we really differ. These are strengths in my world. You putting respect in a weakness column spoke volumes to me. As I said, I already know you. Have a good day sir. I feel this might interest you.

          Okay, I will get bashed for this but here goes my opinion. I believe the physical bodies we have now are just vessels and tools. They are not our real selves. Life is a school, so to speak. Our bodies are for now and our spiritual lives are for a later much more beautiful and full life. I guess we will all see one day.
I'm with YOU, Robbie!

... and the time we spend in our physical bodies is like the blink of an eye.
