I like to say science and religion are born of the same thing. We wanted to understand the sun. Science represents an appropriate, methodical method for understanding such a thing whereas religion fantasizes about what things could mean without any grounding in reality whatsoever.
May be wrong, but seems you are saying Mother's response makes son feel guilty & she should just accept the announcement as if it's OK, if that's how he feels. Our emotions don't work that way, we need time to put everything in

Aw - yes, a person who understands, a rare being that is aware of one's ultimate potentials, not one's, so called, relative potentials, which ultimately fail to bring to us, peace of mind and contentment within one's own hemisphere.
Enoch constantly ignores evidence if it refutes his worldview. I recently saw someone show him actual pictures of archeological evidence of PreColumbian agriculture, I'm talking stone rakes and tools and even crops, only for enoch to mutter "But...bu bu but...Natives were too stupid to farm"....
That makes no sense.

I didn't know that, but I would say that is right in line with what I wrote above.
Of course they do. It's part of the act. Magicians need to come up with new ways to entertain and amaze people. The rabbit from the hat get old after a few decades.
It must be tiring being so wrong.
