I really don't have the time or the inclination to repeat discussions in this thread as each new believer enters and exits it. If you have any meaningful critiques of the "god of the gaps" concept, I would suggest that you watch the video already embedded in this thread. That would be a great starting point for you and you can state any points that you'd like to raise.
It's my assertion that you passed along a picture of a quote that someone made up, which not only mischaracterizes ancient Greek thought, but completely invents up a quote in order to advance some agenda.

If you have a problem with what I did, which was politely explain why that was wrong, then you probably just have a problem with historical accuracy and the truth. It has nothing to do with a god of the gaps concept or anything you want to pretend I'm arguing.
