Isn't it madness for anyone to believe they are completely rational? I mean, really.

If you substitute "science" for "faith" in your last diatribe, you'll get something very close to the nonsense some religious fanatics spout.

The problem is, rationality can be just as insane as irrationality. It just depends on your axioms. And there are no axioms that lead to a completely valid model of the world in all cases.
