Thinling on the Unknown

Thinking on the unknown:
Thinking on the unknown:
It is possible there are many things in this vast universe that we will never know about. Seems unlikely that always efficient nature would endow us with knowledge that is not needed to ensure the continuity of our species. We are limited to a mammal’s comprehension of this Universe. Our eyes have evolved over millions of years for specific purpose – – to find prey and avoid predators. Our brains have evolved over millions of years for similar purpose. We are probably no more able to comprehend certain aspects of this universe than can a horse save its foal from drowning by lifting it up out of the creek.

While this is no problem for our species, since nature supplies us with the intellectual capability needed to help us survive as a species, it is one hell of a problem for our philosophers who may be driven to embrace theology, where words like” Truth”, and “Spiritual” still mean something:))
