Thanks for your input, Ebbie, and as far as I'm concerned, you do too get brownie points!

Stephen Jay Gould really, really wished there were a god, especially while he was dying of that awful cancer, or interacting with his autistic son.

And science *can* speak to what ought to be - for instance, there are no clear-cut biological distinctions among the races, which supports the idea that there ought not to be racism. (But if there were such biological divisions, racism would still be wrong, so then again, maybe not. Maybe it's SCIENTISTS who can speak to the right/wrong thingie).
