And I'm sure you can do this all day. Just as I could find quotes from scientists which were (or appeared to be) anti-theistic in nature." I find it as difficult to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the prescence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science"
Wernher Von Braun
But the thing you're not grasping here bo, is that scientists theological/philosophical opinions are irrelevant to science, and any scientific claims have to be backed up. Appeal to authority on its own is just a logical fallacy, and only evidence that you have nothing in the way of any actual evidence or argument.
