Personally, I don't see the allure in following stricture of any kind, whether it's religious stricture or scientific. While I tend to lean more towards the scientific and logical aspects of thought, I've (somehow) found peace with the fact that there are just some things that humans won't ever know and probably ought not to know. People on both sides tend to overanalyze things and vehemently argue their rightness against each others' virtues, even though we as humans can only define what is right from a biased point of view.
Sometimes, not knowing is a lot better than knowing. Knowing everything would get boring after a while, wouldn't you think?
