Well it is the best way to comprehend the world, to understand the world we live in we must seek information form any source available (well that's my point of view). I studied theology for a semester in college because it's my quest for knowlegde that drove me to it. If you are simply interested in your own little world then so be it, but i would tell you this an opened mind is like having opens eyes, they are better to see the beauty of the complexity of ones' universe.
Yet it was used many times againts Copernic and Galilée, curious indeed.
Do you know the law of Lavoisier? (nothing Disappears, nothing is Created there is only transformation)
Well what's even more tricky is to prove if god exist at all. ( If not gods)
That would be called the placebo effect, in my antropology study group we studied that effect, which is quite interesting indeed. Some use Shamans others Crystals and some use gods, but it all have the same effect a form of healing, basically ease the pain and removes stress.

Tell me can a child born prematurely think for him self;"there's no god, i'll let those doctors cure me". My family and I spend days praying to a god to help this small child, but he wouldn't live to even be able to open his eyes, yet live long enough to feel the pain of broken legs and several operations. Can Moises reject god, could he? was he even able to understand what was happening around him?
