The golden rule of science: provide the evidence, proof, data or results. Do not take anything at face value.
However, when clinging too rigidly to such a statement, do we not become fools ourselves?
Does it not become a religion in its own right? A fanatical belief that nothing can be true nor exist without verification?
The world becomes dull with such a viewpoint.
No magic, no childlike wonder nor appreciation for the beauty of the unknown, unique or strange.
Rather, realising that science cannot explain everything and that being awestruck at time, is the most harmonious outlook on life.
