And any open minded person should also recognize that there perhaps is something going on (beyond the scope of our science) and so a definitive 'no' is just as refutable by logic as a definitive 'yes'.

The politics of this debate are probably so overwhelming as to make an unheated discussion of it all but impossible.

I enjoy a good heated discussion though, don't you?! Provided, of course, that no-one is too dogmatic in their views, in which case it becomes an argument.

It is the leap from "something going on" to "there must be a god" that a scientist wouldn't make without evidence. Science cannot take things on faith alone, otherwise we'd risk describing Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle as being caused by quantum pixies!
