No google cheating you fucks or the god of fun will curse you forever.

I can live with doubt, and uncertainty, and not knowing. I think it's much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers which might be wrong. I have approximate answers, and possible beliefs, and different degrees of certainty about different things, but I'm not absolutely sure of anything. There are many things I don't know anything about, such as whether it means anything to ask "Why are we here?" I might think about it a little bit, and if I can't figure it out then I go on to something else. But I don't have to know an answer. I don't feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose — which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell. Possibly. It doesn't frighten me.

If it's a physicist, I will guess Carl Sagan, it reminds me of something he said once about being unafraid with not knowing the answers to the big questions.

My second guess is Richard Feynman.

Since he's my hero, it doesn't seem fair to answer, but it's Feynman.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.
