Comfort and Solace

In times of trouble and great trials, I take comfort in science and reason. Not the pseudo-inspirational quotes from scripture, nor the belief of an omnipotent God who will compensate you for your troubles in the afterlife. Science and reason give me the confidence to face life with the ability to navigate it, understand it, even improve it. They empower me with the means and justification to get on with life.
