“Because philosophy arises from awe, a philosopher is bound in his way to be a lover of myths and poetic fables. Poets and philosophers are alike in being big with wonder.” -Thomas Aquinas
Sure, you’ve studied a little physics. You know about Einstein and General Relativity, the quantum nature of the Universe and the fundamental particles and their interactions. You know about the Big Bang, and you’ve read up on the latest theories and ideas. So how did you wind up believing in many (or even all) of these scientific myths out there?
Are space, time and gravity an illusion? Can we not see farther than 13.8 billion light years since the Universe is only 13.8 billion years old? Was the Big Bang the birth of space and time? Is gravity not fundamental at all? And isn’t it all “just a theory” in the end?
