Question by irishumanist: Is the search for REAL answers to life’s mysteries more gratifying than simply blindly accepting ancient dogma
Is there anybody else who feels an absolute joy and sense wonder and fulfillment when learning about the true scientific reasons for the how the universe and everything that is in it came to be ?

Do you feel an immense sense of wonder and amazement when you contemplate the sky at night and marvel at all we have learnt about our orgins and existance and all that there is still to know ?

Finally do you think that this joy and wonder is far superior to simply accepting ancient dogmatic myths as a way of explaining the world around us
Go raibh mile maith agat an ard ri

  1. Ta tu go maith, a mhac!

  2. Yes, god, yes!

    lol… Science has more wonder in it than any religion and the awe of real understanding is so much more rewarding than awe at made up fables.

  3. YES, YES, YES and YES

    Thanks for asking a great question. :)

  4. It may seem that way for a while, but after a few years of “its the journey, not the destination”, “live each day to its fullest:, and “learning is a lifelong passion”, you begin to yearn for something a bit more nuanced, connected to ethical and philosophical thought, and useful and practical in living.

    Ancient dogmatic myths are much richer and more human than the products of Hallmark and Hollywood.

    Do you think this answer will be voted “best answer” or chosen as such by asker?
