Stop scientific progress! Preserve god's natural habitat of gaps!

Religious believer living in 1600: "Science can't explain how the Moon moves around Earth, therefore it points to supernatural control, and is evidence of god."

Religious believer living in 1700: "Science can't explain what lightning is, therefore it points to a supernatural origin (most likely to punish us for bad deeds), and is evidence of god."

Religious believer living in 1800: "Science can't explain how disease is caused, therefore it points to a supernatural origin, (most likely to punish us for bad deeds), and is evidence of god."

Religious believer living in 1900: "Science can't explain how stars get their energy to shine for so long, therefore it points to supernatural power, and is evidence of god."

Religious believer living in 2000: "Science can't explain how life originated from non-life, therefore it points to a supernatural origin, and is evidence of god."

Religious believer living in 2100: (I don't know what they'll say. Which gap will they run to next?)

Religious Believer 2100:

You cannot say who developed the other 7 dimensions. It must point to a supernatural entity. What? You have a working M theory model that accounts for all laws? Pssshh...god is above those laws yet at the same time uses those laws to hide his miracles that way there is no proof. See how great he is!!!
