Very good run down of the issues, though a little too polite.
Scientists don't know everything, therefore my favorite flavor of stoopidz is true.

That reminds me of this Neil deGrasse Tyson video I watched yesterday:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxiLnC7ikw8

Forty-two minutes long, so I don't suggest anyone else watch it unless they have 42 minutes and want to watch a video of Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about "how God disappeared as an explanation for things humans did not understand about the universe, as the 'perimeter of ignorance' receded".

The basic lesson I took from deGrasse's presentation was that declaring "Goddidit" is to end the search for further understanding. Brilliant scientists from history have made astounding advances in one area, then declared the next stepping stone in knowledge to be the domain of God, and so have stopped there.
