My worldview journey is quite basic and uncomplicated. I’m a full-time college student with absolutely no contradictions or controversial questions swirling around in my mind. Since I’m an engineering major so like most of the unexceptional people I never used to scrutinize everything and raise different philosophical questions, in fact, the answer to almost anything for me was either science or the religious knowledge I attained and understood so far.
