      I don’t think that every question in life can be answered with science, equally I don’t think they need to be.

      There are moral and phillosophical questions that can’t be answered with science like why is it wrong to kill, or why are we here? Also questions surrounding art may be possible to answer with science, but probably shouldn’t be. For example why do you think rainbows are pretty? There might be an answer for that question based in physchology but I prefer the answer “because they’re colourful :)”

      Science is just a way of trying to understand how the universe works – it can’t answer all questions, I think. For example, why are some things beautiful to us and what is art? I don’t think there is a scientific answer to all of that one.

      I don’t think that science has the answers to all of the questions. When something involved morals, or emotions, or things like that, I don’t think that you can turn to science. Why do people have arguments with other people that they care about? It’s not something that I would be able to answer with science, yet it is a question like that that I am more likely to think about, and dwell on more.

      Science can answer some great questions, but it’s not everything. It’s pretty good fun though 🙂
