What is it?

What is it that makes us look for a reason and purpose for our lives?

Does it matter how old the earth is really?

Why do we all want to be part of something bigger than ourselves?

These kinds of questions fascinate me.

I wonder why humans are who we are, why we think, what makes us search for truth and wisdom and love and justice. What is the meaning of it all?

Empirical data. Lines of evidence. Interpretations. Conclusion.

These are what I use to try to understand what is probably true as a scientist.

Go where the data leads.

Use all the scientific tools available.

Account for uncertainty.

Test the hypothesis.

Test again.

Again.

Again.

This is how I have come to believe.

Strange how science and faith ended up using similar methods for me.

Can anyone relate?
