You can't control anything but a small part of yourself.
You do however have a choice. Not making a choice is a choice itself.
The're is no thing in this world that you must but one thing: Undergo the
results of your choice.
Getting enraged by books is a choice.
Don't get overwhelmed. When that happens you'll panic and reason will
vacate your mind.
You are allowed to believe in things that are not real.
Science is not a fixed thing. It's an ever changing truth towards reality.
Religions mostly advocate absolute truth. There is no absolute truth.
Sience is knowing that your viewing the universe through a keyhole and you
are probably be wrong in your assessment of what you see.
Accept that you'll need to base your choices on what you know now. You
cannot make choices based on things you might come to know.
Relax and live. It is worth your time. Don't anger yourself on ignorance of
others. But don't think you are above another. We're all different. Be
proud of it.
This life might just be a test for the next. And the more/fuller you live
the bigger your obstacles you must overcome. At least that's how I see it.
