What does science offer, if not a collection of tentative theories?<quoted text>
No, there will be only the myths of gods, crutches for those who can't stand on their own two feet.
As long as people believe there are loopholes to get out of death, they will waste time worshipping the fabricators of these promises.
As long as people believe in the promise of heaven and the threat of hell, they will be frightened, weak people who drink the kool-aid of the latest fad in theology.
The skewed perspectives of peoples experiences is what parents will try to shove down their children's throats to perpetuate the myth.
Again, those that can't square off with reality will cling to myth.....their crutch.
Everybody dies...nobody gets out of it, but some of us can see beyond the veil of physicalities.
