Does science take away the 'magic' in life?
I think people need to see beyond science and God being mutually exclusive. That is a ridiculous attitude and it isn't scientifically supported. The fact is, the most basic scientific presumption points toward a creator. Something CANNOT come from nothing. Ask any scientist if there is such a thing as a random occurrence and they will tell you no. An example: a rock cannot just appear from nowhere. Like earth. Since there cannot be an infinite string of causes, basically there has to be a beginning SOMEWHERE, this means that we were created. The bein who created us cannot be held to the same laws as us, because the string theory would still apply. So conclusion: we were created by an infinite being, not subject to our laws. That would be God. As for the magic in life, I really think science can enhance it. We are walking miracles, and we can choose to be constantly amazed by the intricacies of this world if we wish. Just think o how complex our world is, how reliant each piece is on the other. Flowers need bees, bees need flowers. How did that relationship develop? Isn't it amazing? Albert Einstein propelled in many ways modern society. But he was once fluid and matter, tucked in a woman's belly. Miracles still happen. We just dont want to see them, because we think if we admit to the miraculous we will be judged or criticized. That is the true loss we have suffered.

Is The Millennial Generation All About Me-Me-Me And Is That A Bad Thing ?
I am a millennial and I really want to just explain some things. Because I have a read a lot of these threads and I think people are taking these polls in the wrong way. First let me tell you about me and my friends. I am a criminal justice student, and I LOVE helping and protecting people. Of my friends, two want to be nurses, one a social worker and one a psychologist. We all work and attend school, most of us fulltime or nearly so at both. Which roughly amounts to 70 hr work weeks. I regularly make donations and love doing it, because I really do like helping people. My friends go to blood drives. We work all the time. We believe that we can make a difference, but not in the way others did. And we like money, of course we do, everyone does. But it doesn't drive us, you can see from the careers we've chosen. People judge us based on celebrities but we aren't really like that. We may not go to church or consider ourselves 'religious' but that doesn't mean we aren't Christians or devote. I myself am a fierce Christian, but my beliefs fall between Catholic and Baptist, so I don't go to church. But I read my bible. My generation watched the towers fall, two wars start and begin to end, boston attacked, the market crash, technology explode. We believe in hero's, because we've seen them. I'm not saying we're perfect, but complicated. We really have dealt with a lot, probably more than any other generation did in the same time frame. All in all, I think we're doing ok.
