The Sceptical Philosopher
"False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness."
– Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man

As a material philosopher, you have devoted your life to the pursuit of knowledge and the belief in the supremacy of science and reason over religion and superstition. You scoff at anything that can't be explained by rational thinking, and your arrogance in attacking such beliefs has cost you friendships. But the tragic death of your sister has left a crack in your convictions. You are haunted by the thought of never seeing her again, as you struggle to reconcile your beliefs with the longing for something more.
