It has become easier to forge experiences or fake evidence, so we're forced to take any news with a copious handful of salt. Additionally, no one really has any answers for what my friends call "woo woo" stuff, or the stuff usually associated with philosophy or the supernatural. So what's the point of discussing it if you can't walk away with solid answers?
“It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he'll look for his own answers.”
Essentially, even if you don't find the answer you were looking for, you work so hard to find it that the answers you find along the way become that much more precious and meaningful to you. The quote comes from Patrick Rothfuss's "The Wise Man's Fear"...I highly recommend you give it a look. It's full of nice little things like what I just posted.
My favorite line: "Why would I want to win anything other than a beautiful game?"
