"Yes, hard wiring. The "need" to believe that is in all of us. Very honestly this is because you're better than the rest of us. That's why my god is bigger than your god, and why you have the wrong god and I have the right one.…"

"I especially like step 4. It nails the m.o. of religion. I think your posting admirably encapsulates both sides."

Michael Penn commented on V.N.K.Kumar's blog post The futile search for happiness & meaning
"I am happiest when I am doing something meaningful, but what is meaningful to me may not be meaningful to you. In fact, you may not care for it at all. This is a variety of life that makes us all who we are. "

"Happiness will take different forms for each person depending on their temperament, their sociological ecosystem, their culture, and other factors. The same is true for meaning. An introvert will be miserable in a world that makes the extrovert…"

The futile search for happiness & meaning

What makes life worth living? Is it a life filled with happiness or a life filled with purpose and meaning? Is there even a difference between the two?Think of the human rights activist who fights oppression but ends up in prison like Nelson Mandela — was he happy? Or the social animal who spends his nights (and some days) jumping from party to party—is that the good life?HappinessReligious people believe that Happiness comes from their implicit faith in their gods.

Why it is so difficult to love 'Science' but learning it is imperative

Since its inception, Science has been a thorn in the side: incessantly inconvenient, calculatingly cold, and questioning of one's deeply held beliefs ( Regarding God, soul, afterlife, astrology, homeopathy & 101 other pseudo-sciences). It disregards personal feelings.But that's not the worst of it.Science is the reason why Earth is no longer at the center of the Universe. We humans used to be so significant. Everything revolved around us until Science and it's meddling, pesky purveyors got…See More

What happens when we die?

From the beginning of human history people have wondered about death. It is not uncommon for young children to ask their parents, "what happens when we die?"Of course we all either consciously or subconsciously know what really happens when we die. The answer of course is that we are dead. It is right there in the word. Unfortunately, people have a very hard time internalizing this concept. Emotionally, the idea of no longer existing seems to be a terrifying thought for many people.This is…See More
