Out of all that we as intelligent human beings have accomplished in this world, is absolute certainty the only thing that us as humans aren't capable of logically doing?

You can't prove that something is true just based off the fact that the consensus views it as such. You can win the battle but in fact can never win the war.

In order to reach some sort of conclusion in any situation, one must check and re-check every possible variable in the equation, which I believe if given enough time it is inevitable that one reaches a positive conclusion.

However I, or no one else for that matter, can prove it, one can only speculate. It is possible to come to a logical "resting point" ,if you will, in any argument, discussion or even theory.
