TWO WORLDS CONVERGE part three

In both of science and religions areas of my life, I have many more experiences that added to both my understanding of the natural world and understanding about Christianity and religion.

People came up with creation myths to answer it but didn’t have any concrete answers and its still the same today. While we have strong and well supported theories to explain things all the way back to 10-34 seconds after the big bang but from before moment zero to then is still a mystery.

"Why do we care?" - from Atheist Climber blog

From Atheist Climber blog



Logic. Reason. Rationality.



These are the 3 tools I use on a daily basis to make sense of the world. Without these tools, the world decays into a mess of suppositions and superstitions.
