Yes, it's a pretty weak argument, but one I've hear time and again even amongst non-theists. IIRC it was mostly used to express opposition to research in biology or neurology or something ("but if you find out all about the brain, people will be just like machines, and this is scary. Can't we just keep some mystery?") I also find that the more you learn, the more mystery there is (plus, you get your mind blown on the way). Like living on a small island, you get to see only a small length of horizon, whereas on a larger island, the length of horizon is larger. Sort of, if that makes sense. @ Jim H: I don't think what matters is really the umpteenth digit of pi ( rather, of its decimal expansion ), but if I believe it's rather a traditional playground for people to test the speed of improved algorithms or computers.
