Isn't it wonderful how grand, esoteric subjects like the will to live tend to morph into other esoteric topics? Thus far, off the top of my head, this thread has discussed left-handedness, evolution, atheism, religion, spirituality, the distinction between scientific fact and theory, and any number of little smart-people natterings in between. Why we want to live is such a broad question, and the scientific explanation leaves so much to be desired. We make up for our own frustrating inability to understand ourselves with religion, science, philosophy, and roundabout discussions of all three. In this manner, we humans are able to live with the fact that certain things simply slip our understanding. view post
