Wonderful insight regarding current leading agnostic/atheists quitting early. They act as if they have come up with some sort of conclusive evidence.

I'd like to venture into a point of knowability from a scientific standpoint, however, on the limits of reason. Immanuel Kant's noumenal vs. phenomenal is an important understanding here. What I mean is, scientific study only revolves around empirical senses, therefore inadequate to deal with metaphysical issues (which God tends to be into). Dinesh D'Souza in his "What's so great about Christianity?" suggests faith is really the doorway into interacting with the metaphysical.

The Patrisic Fathers tended to have a "we aren't so sure" attitude often as well... or even as far as Augustine's "Believe and you will understand" sort of thing. Empirical study shows the probability and rationality of an intelligent designer but anything beyond that regarding God is going to take a metaphysical science... faith.
