Why do so many people need the world to be so mysterious?
between beliefs in gods, ghosts, re-birth, psychics, etc, it seems like understanding that the world is just what it seems is an almost impossible concept for so many. why can't people just realize that life here is just that and not some grand mystery.
We need al these mysteries. For instance Steven Spielberg wouldn't have made so many out of this world movies. Harrison Ford would have working in an Office and so on. Egyptians, Mayans, aztecs, Babylonians and Incas, they never wanted to keep the world in mystery and awe. They just lived a life like tht U.S. is doing it now. "Houston, we have a problem.."
That is a very good question nightwork4, and I believe it has to do with the fact that there are mysteries in life that are never explained, and people use gods, ghosts, etc. as a way to answer those questions. As we continue to find answers, we find more questions, and to many life is not as simple as we think it is. I hope this answers your question, it certainly is a good one.
lol @ nightwork you're funny! I don't think people want the world to be anything, because at the end of the day the universe will remain true to itself. For some this universe is full of mystery and this is their firm belief because they have experience it first hand.....as for others its like a trend of some sort. Believe whatever you must, you are privy to that!
Not sure we really need it mysterious it really just is because their are so many complex aspects no one can know everything, bt if we could what would encourage us to learn.
I think it's because people have experienced, what they feel are 'mysterious' episodes in their lives so by extension life does hold mysteries that, so far, are not explained.
But one mystery I have is why someone like yourself gets so worked up about what other people believe in? Provided people aren't shoving their beliefs in your face - and I have had experience of that believe you me - then live and let live and each to their own.

Why do so many people believe that God doesn't love them when he sent his only son to save them?

How open are you to a MAJOR change in American politicsIf we want to change washington, we have to change ourselves first. We have to change our expectations. We have to raise them. Washington's results mirror our expectations, and polls show we don't expect much.

Why do so many people choose to lie to their children about Santa?This is where "Christians" and the rest of the population are similar, they all lie to their children about Santa and that seems dangerous! Jesus Christ hates lies, so why do people do it on His so-called birthday?
