Everything you believe is a myth, says Sagen. “A meaningless Universe – has generated fear” he says, and has led humans throughout the past to creating myths to squelch their fear, “yet I will tell you that a meaningless universe shouldn’t make you afraid, but rather it will make you happy” he infers. Throughout the book Sagen reassures the reader that the meaningless of the universe is exciting and beautiful and he then sets forth his own “history” of the universe and of humanity, a history that he has extrapolated by looking at the various evidences in the cosmos.
Is this where scientists are taking us? Wanting to teach our children that their lives are meaningless?
I thought science was all about observation and not about philosophy; yet every scientist who infers that the life is meaningless has gone beyond the reaches of observation and has now inferred their philosophy.
That then is my objection; scientists have overreached their bounds. Too many scientists are masking their own personal philosophies under the cloak of ‘science’.”
