Our theme for the rest of the month of October is Finding Meaning.
Steven Weinberg explains in his book on the Big Bang, The First Three Minutes: “The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless.” Is Weinberg right? Are understanding and meaning antithetical? Do we create meaning in spite of the inherent meaninglessness of the cosmos? Or is there perhaps some meaning to our lives to be found within physical nature? And what do our answers to these questions mean for us as Naturalistic Pagans?
