Why So Irrational?

"In epistemology and in its modern sense, rationalism is "any view appealing to reason as a source of knowledge or justification".[1] In more technical terms, it is a method or a theory "in which the criterion of the truth is not sensory but intellectual and deductive".

If you think like what the quote from Wikipedia states then you, like me, are a rationalist. We believe that logic, reasoning and understanding leads to the answers of small questions like why do we eat to the major questions like why are we here.

For me I was always questioning things in my head like does god exist? why do we socialize? These are the kinds of questions that were swimming in my mind as a child and unlike many others this tendency to question, even when it is useless in a material sense, never faded away. To this day I have found that for me it is unquestionably inexcusable for me to accept something as true or fact without something logical supporting that fact even if what I find to be true is also down right depressing.
