Why, yes, Gil. I know that in your moronic world-view where everything's a
religion, and therefore uncertainty isn't allowed, this sort of statement
undoubtedly seems incredibly alien, but unlike some moronic soi disant
anthropologists, most scientists will admit when they don't have enough
information to answer a question.

=>We do not yet know if there is enough mass in the universe to make it
=Seems you lot still don't know very much about space at all, by my

Seems like you insist that everything must be a religion, and are unable to
copy with anything that isn't.

Disclaimer: Hey, I understand VAXen and VMS. That's what I get paid for. My
understanding of astronomy is purely at the amateur level (or below). So
unless what I'm saying is directly related to VAX/VMS, don't hold me or my
organization responsible for it. If it IS related to VAX/VMS, you can try to
hold me responsible for it, but my organization had nothing to do with it.
