The Science Of Myth Lyrics

Artist: Screeching Weasel
Album: My Brain Hurts

If you've ever question beliefs that you hold you're not alone
But you oughtta realize that every myth is a metaphor
in the case of Christianity
and Judaism there exist the belief
that spiritual matters are enslaved to history
The Buddhists believe that the functional aspects override the myth
while other religions use the literal core to build foundations with
See half the world sees the myth as fact
while it's seen as a lie by the other half and
the simple truth is that it's none of that and
somehow no matter what the world keeps turning
Somehow we get by without ever learning
Science and religion
are not mutually exclusive
In fact for better understanding
we take the facts of science and apply them
And if both factors keep evolving
then we continue getting information
but closing off possibilities
makes it hard to see the bigger picture
Consider the case of the women
whose faith helped her make it through
when she was raped and cut up left for dead
in a trunk her beliefs held true
It doesn't matter if it's real or not cause
some things are better left without a doubt and
if it works then it gets the job done
Somehow no matter what the world keeps turning

Great song, but science and religion are definitely not equally useful or valid. Any of the good metaphors taught in religion could easily be found in non-religious literature and often are.

Screeching Weasel has some of the absolute most prolific lyrics lyrics ever. Ben Weasel, a tip of my hat to you, sir.

Phocion, I don't think you know what the word prolific means.
by CiderPunk on 6/12/2013 9:53am
seems perfectly cromulent to me!

Ben Weasel is a talent. And a smart guy. Smart enough to consciously acknowledge what left and right wing atheists and diests can't and/or won't. We don't have the answer to everything, and we never will. Deal with it.

I belive we are all of bens children and he is our lord and savior
