When we first started as a species, we were the first to realize there was a beginning and an end and there was something more to life. We looked at the stars for answers. Stars were the first usages for measurement navigation, harvesting, and many many others. Without any of the modern conveniences of today, we started to fill the blanks by ourselves. Those turned to word of mouth, and those words were exaggerated to the point in which they became myths, those myths had a following, those followings were called religion. The proactive parts at the time is that religion came to answer all questions. The bad part? All those questions were convenienced to the listener. They were wrong answers!!
When humans introduced observation, data keeping, and testing to the equation, it opened up a chapter to a whole new system, with better concrete answers: Science. Science never meant to harm religion or other philosophies, but through test after test, discovery after discovery, Science champion all and continues to this very day. With religion man looked up at the stars, with Science we observed and understand how they worked and reacted.
What's the next step for human kind? If science is the study of how everything works, what's the next step? Will there be a day in which we collectively know everything? Will we ever find the answers, or will our species will be doomed to the point of just being curious for the rest of humankind's lifetime?
