some people need others to give meaning to their existence. the rest of us give our own lives their meaning.I'll take some exception to this:
First, where do you get the idea that science was telling them their existence is near meaningless or to live life like there is no tomorrow? I don't doubt that there may be some over-the-top scientist who might make such a claim but where is the the position of science as a discipline?
the difference between sheeple and free thinkers...
