The kind people at 'Research' are working so diligently on our behalf (and for their grants, of course!) to tell us about mid-life amnesia and that being bullied as a kid makes you a depressed adult (well D'UH!!). And the Scientists have made sure we now know (if we want to) that Santa and the tooth fairy aren't real, that every single snowflake is different and why rainbows are - well, rainbows.
My question is - are we running out of natural mysterious wonders and myths to wonder at?
And - do we remember when rainbows were just pretty colours in the sky with a pot of gold at the end, or when we didn't see the snowflake, but the opportunity to build snowmen, or we didn't see the human genome, just the baby?
Research, mythbusting - is this spoiling childhood for adults? :-)
Everyday there is a new research house or science magazine publishing results (some banal, some amazing) that make our world that little bit smaller.
And if/when all the mysteries of the world have been uncovered, there will still be the ultimate mystery - Faith.....
