And why we already know by fact and by example:
Spatial capacity to which is the capacity to exist, and have a place to exist in. This can not ever have zero literal capacity, exist as zero capacity, or exist in the form of a negative capacity. Hence, literal 0 dimensional objects, places, or things do not exist because they can not have the capacity to do so. And that is especially true for someone that would try and imply -1 dimensional capacity..
And what is Spatial Capacity made of? Energy
..And that also means no literal negative or zero energy can't exist. This is also stated in the laws of Thermodynamics because literal zero temperature or thermal property is impossible for this very same reason. From ground state to every day objects like the chair you sit in here on Planet Earth.. So we do know quite a bit, we just don't know the entire sum total there is to know between zero (ground state) and above.So you can feel free to reference:
2) You, me, and everything else on the orders of magnitude on the energy scale..as also demonstrated above under (scale):http://talklikeaphysicist.com/2009/energy-scale-of-over-100-orders-of-magnitude/
Gravity is considered a negative energy (not literally, just opposite force in the opposite direction/attraction)This is also where expansion is considered positive energy. The total net energy is zero (not literal). This is where Zero energy, as energy, is in a state of Equilibrium vs actually being nothing or literally zero. This is why we refer to zero-point energy or ground state. So at rest there is zero-point energy. This is where zero also = 1 or (0,1)Zero point energy:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero-point_energyGround State:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ground_state

So yes, there are gaps in our "Knowledge" of the universe, but they are actually only Gray Area Gaps in terms of physics, complexity of chaotic systems, and how exactly to infinite detail did the Big Bang happen from Quantum fluctuations of energy.This can best be understood by the following example:
We know we are human and what we are made of, and where we relatively reside. However, we do not infinitely know everything there is about ourselves/species.. In fact we know more about the Chicken than we do about the ourselves on a scientific level. So are we human? Do we need to know the entire 100% of all the infinite information we could ever gain about ourselves to understand what we are? Or to make correct assumptions of what we are based on the available and already known knowledge of what we are?
Same principle applies to Earth.. We don't need to infinitely know everything about Earth to know it's a habitable planet in a solar system labeled "sol" so which resides in the Milky-way Galaxy amongst the billions of others...
And this is why the GOD of the Gaps argument is erroneous..You can also not references:
Our own Universe has been measured to be flat with less than a 2 percent margin of error.http://wmap.gsfc.nasa.gov/universe/uni_age.html
For clarity, like a disc floating in space similar to our own Galaxy but at a much grander scale. Thus the net Energy = zero (no lower than ground state).
