Does Science Suck the Meaning Out of Life? Conclusion

"The problem with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes rather than with their minds."
--Walter Duranty

I have tackled this issue in an admittedly cursory fashion. Much more has been, and could be, said about it. However, I believe it to be a reasonable conclusion that it is not fair to reject the scientific perspective simply because it appears bleak. Even in a world stripped of hope and purpose, man could overcome. So, in considering the validity of science-whether individual ideas or as a worldview-let us not be guided by our feelings but look at the issue as clearly as possible.
