Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Against my better judgement, a serious point.

Your religion appears to amount to "We don't understand some stuff, so we made some stuff up." Fables for those too arrogant and too insecure to say "We don't know some stuff. We may not be able to know some stuff."

Seriously, "science can't come up with an explanation for intelligence or love"? Science can come up with a lot of explanations, the problem is winnowing them - it's pretty hard to do without knowing the precise historical circumstances in which either intelligence or love evolved. Note also that science is required to provide a full explanation whereas religion can just waves its hands and mumble mystical, allegorical noises

But even if we couldn't explain it, that doesn't justify the leap to imaginary sky people or etheral bodies or chakras. It would just mean out explicative powers were limited, which is hardly surprising.

Yet (weak) atheists are the arrogant ones?
