I have said this many times and will say it again here. We are biological data processors with memory. We can also comprehensively upgrade our conclusions as new information is acquired. We have our five obvious senses for obtaining information and we have developed many languages to be able to share and communicate our new information. We have also recorded our history for the most part in order to understand our evolution into greater enlightenment. We have physical abilities unmatched by other species we have encountered. All this to say that we are a biological science lab, think tank, library and the equivalent of a Swiss army knife all wrapped up into one being.
Forgive me if I am contrary to your beliefs but with all that we are it makes no sense to me that we wouldn't be more in tune with facts than with myth. My life isn't about some future beyond my being alive now. My future is my present and my logical understanding is that my future is today, not some far off tomorrow with a promise from no one who can verify the myth. I am better than that. I will not be sold the myth of what to me is a bill of goods with no guarantee of it's actual existence when I have all these human qualities to help me along with a factual life that are already in my possession.
