Philosophy - Things that makes me think

As I was sitting by the computer, having a conversation over Facebook with my dear friend Daniel Eklund, we suddenly started discussing philosophy and a bit of science. You know those typical mindbending philosophical questions that we all think of once every little while. What happens after death? What is excistence? Is there a purpose to life, its formation and the excistence of the Universe?
Well, it did not take long before both me and Daniel came up with a bunch of interesting questions. So... let's get to the point, why am I making this post? Well there are some questions that I'd like to share with you and the internet. Some of the questions have most definitely been asked and discussed many times before but I still think I managed to come up with a couple of interesting thoughts, discussing philosophy and science this evening.
So enjoy the read. And PLEASE, if you by any chance have the time/opportunity to share your thoughts or even give me well structured answers; DO SO! Also, excuse me if the English is poor. It's late as I am writing this and I just want all the thoughts out of my head!

Thought n1: Is it correct/right to use the human designed and written sciences/theories to prove that this "our own" science is true? Is not all of our theories and the human sciences then proved true, having used our own designed and written explanations to excistence and the origin of life? (Easier explained: Can we really prove science TRUE, using science?)

Thought n2: Our perception or view of reality and what is physically and mentally possible is constantly changing. This thanks to our knowledge and our sciences about the Universe continuously being developed. Stating this/having this said, how can we then, the humanity and all the intelligent researchers out there, stand by and be 100 % sure that for example magic is impossible? Magic is proven false and unreal using our present knowledge about physics laws and what is possible for a living organism. Or is it not? Contemporary/current knowledge about everything that exists is not by its final state if you ask me. We do not know everything about everything. Science is not complete. And if you would ask me again I will not deny the possibility of something impossible being possible until you prove science completed. Not until science is COMPLETE and you have been in every corner or dimension (if there are any) of the Universe and proven "Hmm no, magic does not exsist, it is nowhere to be found.". Haha well science might never ever be "COMPLETE" and hence the problem is; I could still ask you more questions. Like: "So you have not seen/found/heard of magic anywhere in the whole Universe. But what about after death? Are you sure you have not checked all the dimensions (if there are more)?". . . Oh philosophy and crazy thoughts.. you only make me dizzy instead of providing me with answers :-(

Well I could go on forever on this topic, but few people read long bloggposts and VERY few read my blogg haha ;-)
