They were scientists.

Do you think their definition of science was woolly and unsustainable?

Good! This is comment worth responding to - that is, it's better than simply saying: 'Schopenhauer would have disagreed with you - and he was an atheist.'

There are two things here. I was very careful to say in the OP that 'there may well be issues which reason can't address, and problems which it cannot solve.' Please note that I went further than saying that there may be problems which science cannot solve.

But ... (big 'but'!) ... if you're going to say, 'there are some things where intuition suits better', then I'd suggest that I can't really comment unless you explain exactly what you mean, and give some examples.
