    The poll is too vague.

    That's not philosophy. That's the history of philosophy.

    And philosophy is the single most powerful changing factor in a person's life, if you ask me.

    Yeah, difference is you have no way of knowing which way you are progressing. Forward, sure. In scientific evolution. Through just one of the tree of possibilities' arms. That might not bring you any happiness in the process at all.

    I like the ideas in science. I like the theories that science gives us as it gives us room to create new theories on the same matter. Facts are quite boring but even the fact that facts are facts is a theory.
    I also love philosophy.
