Some people think that scientist can’t take uncertainty, and need an answer for everything. Quite the opposite is true. Most the scientist I know and work with delight in not knowing the answer. In fact, not knowing what the question even is could be the height of joy! Then the hours and days and months of work to find the question, and then an answer is what makes work great!

It is actual the religious people that can’t stand not having an answer.

Why is it raining? God is crying.

Why thunder and lightning? God is mad at us.

People that don’t like mystery will believe the first thing that they are told, or the fist thing they hear Oprah say on the matter.

Think about all the things that used to have a religious answer, that we now know from science is just natural. When was the last time you heard the word Firmament? Probably in the temple. It was thought at one time that there was a dome (the firmament) that held the stars and other celestial bodies. We now know this isn’t true, but it persists in our temple ceremony.

Why is there a rainbow? It is either a “meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky”, or a sign from God that he would not kill every living sole except Noah and his family next time He got angry. I’ll let you decide which makes more senses.
