      😀 Great question and my answer would be I definitely do believe in it because it explains everything happens around us 😉

      Ha ha. Great question 🙂 Very philosophical – science explains most stuff (whether you acknowledge it or not)

      Tough one this. Every time scientists think they have all the answers, something crops up that can’t be explained by current theory. First we had Newtonian mechanics and when that fell over, Einstein came to the rescue with quantum theory, Now that isn’t good enough ad we a scratching around for the next level of understanding – if we don’t find the Higgs boson, scientists are going to have to do some head scratching. So, if we think we can yet explain absolutely everything, then we are wrong – so we are still chasing an illusion, but one that is pretty close to working all of the time.

      If it is an illusion, then it’s a very very clever one … because science works! Otherwise you wouldn’t have mobile phones or cars or computers 🙂
