Mythology

The human mind is not capable of directly grasping reality, so, in science, we have to create myths that help us get close to reality in a way that we can make things that work. Those myths always break down at some level, but some try to push them to the level that they use them to express ultimate reality, and “discover the secrets of the universe.” That makes science into a foolish religion, and makes what it finds into dogma that cannot be questioned. The most obvious example of such a myth is the idea that dirt did magic and turned itself into people over millions of years. There are many others.
