Everyone is looking for meaning in their lives, for a way of understanding the world as being more than just a random assemblage of matter and energy that has happened to bring us into existence. That's a natural human need. It doesn't mean your mind is a wastebasket into which anybody who comes by, can throw whatever they want.
-Steven Walton, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, California State University (From Penn and Teller: Bullshit)
If you haven't seen the television series Penn and Teller: Bullshit, I highly recommend it for a refreshing bullshit-less way to pass the time. Penn and Teller are crusaders of reason and intellect, and I sorta heart them in my own weird geeky way.
You can watch the full episode (where this quote is pulled from) at dailymotion. Apologies for the low quality. You can also watch more episodes from this series on Dailymotion, look around. :)
