"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."--Albert Einstein
“There are many examples of old, incorrect theories that stubbornly persisted, sustained only by the prestige of foolish but well-connected scientists. Many of these theories have been killed off only when some decisive experiment exposed their incorrectness.”
You persistent skeptics that viciously tear into every subject that is a slight tad out of the ordinary do not only ruin the concepts of some possibly enlightening threads, you ensure that every future thread will be derailed and sent into a furious debate between skeptics and what you would like to classify as lunatics, or people who need to be medicated. If anything, it is YOU who need to be medicated with some hallucinogenics or meditation to get out of your tiny, insignificant box, and see this.

You know for a damn fact that there is a purpose to life, regardless of what it may be, it is most DEFINITELY not to sit around and collect dust believing in whatever outdated physics book is thrown your way.

Lets say ghosts, surely being rational and taking on the evidence without bias you should come to the conclusion that they don't exist. Yet that's considered closed minded?
If your kid asks you if he can survive a gunshot wound to the head, are you going to say "don't be skeptic" because medical science says he won't?
I don't care if you're atheist, religious or a robot. You know for a damn fact that there is a purpose to life, regardless of what it may be, it is most DEFINITELY not to sit around and collect dust believing in whatever outdated physics book is thrown your way.
