Double Rainbow!

In Archives, Uncategorized on December 15, 2010 at 12:00 pm

If you’re stressed out, you might like this YouTube video of a guy seeing a double rainbow outside his house in a national park. The video pretty much speaks for itself, but I do have some thoughts.

First, I think that wonder is one of humanity’s best qualities. We alone have this kind of love and awe for the universe, and what a shame if the universe were without it.

Second, I thought I saw in this video (“What does this mean?!”) the possible origins of religion. The cynical line is that religious beliefs developed when humanity couldn’t face the pain and uncertainty of life without help—but I wonder if religion actually (or also) developed as a way for us to deal with our immense appreciation for the world. Anyway, enjoy finals!
