How I View the World

I am not religious or spiritual. 

I do not believe in God or a higher power. 

I do not believe in anything, really, in the traditional sense of the word. 

I believe in science and facts. In the tangible things, those that I can feel and see. 

I see the beauty in the natural world, and wonder at the things humans have yet to discover. 

I believe we are a flawed race, a people who very often don’t have the answers. We are imperfect and mistaken in so many ways, yet I appreciate that we keep going, we keep trying, and we have the ability to change. 

I do not believe in anything more than the science of our physical world. 

I do not deny the possibility of the existence of something more, something beyond the physical, tangible world. 

After all, I believe in the fallibility of humans.

I think this further speaks to your calling as a doctor. The science of life is your "religion" if it gives you comfort, ponderings, and you feel it to be true.

Well written, as always.
