    Well I understand what u mean. for me I don't believe in everything science says I also believe that some stuff are fake. But I still believe that God gave humans the power to think about stuff and create stuff to help humanity as society changes such as technology and medicine.
    But when u said that u believe earth is flat I kinda think your trolling lol cuz like it's clearly round if you look into the horizon and I THINK it is said in holy books (I'm not sure gonna search it up)
    searched it up I'm rly confused right now sometimes I used to also kinda have that feeling that what if earth is actually flat because of watching too much YouTube videos about it. But now although I'm a Muslim I do believe in the bible and found some verses that say that earth is round and I couldn't rly in the quran cuz they could be interpreted differently (either round or flat) but Its believed it's round.

    Does there need to be a why as opposed to a how?

    As an integral and important component of human curiosity giving rise to philosophy branching into science, yes.

    To not ask the question and appraise accordingly, is to close down imagination. That would indeed be a loss for humanity, no matter how little evidence there is to support a scientific answer.

    The event horizon between science and metaphysics or religion, is currently established as prior to the big bang singularity line of inquiry. There are of course alternative theories confined to the realms of mathematics which makes these hypothesis closer to philosophy without a method for gathering empirical evidence.

    I would suggest, large swathes of humans are not ready (as yet) to give up the psychological comfort religion offers.

    Asking why, does not stop science. But it does offer those confined to a life of abject poverty, oppression and no access to a comprehensive education, at least some morsel of hope.

    It also leaves the freedom to choose standing as a central pillar of liberal democracy.
