That any man or woman should need answers to the big questions of life so badly that they turn themselves over to lies and folly — this should not be conceded as an ordinary need of humankind. No; one needs only to look to the animal kingdom to see that life need not understand its whereabouts in order to thrive. When the desire for answers exceeds scientific curiosity, a weakness is there demonstrated so widespread that one can only reasonably assume there is a flaw at the genetic level in many men and women who must fanatically devote themselves to turning story-making and make-believe into their fabrications of reality.
