Thank you. Yes, that is all too true. Fortunately though, the things we do know give us a better understanding of how to remain living and a part of it all, while at the same time becoming more aware of the damage so much of our modern inventions have done to our environment. One of my small rays of hope for the future is that most members of my immediate family are atheists and I think quite a large number of the younger members' contemporaries are atheists too, and do not need religious leaders to tell them what to think or how to live their lives.Quote
Our understanding of reality via religion or science is so infantile, it's unknowable. It's too beyond human comprehension. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try, but we're bottlenecked by our own hardware and frames of reference.
Why should anything exist to begin with? The best we can come up with is "because it does". We know nothing.
