happiness is a desire of most all. However many lists also want to be right in other words scientific. However, been right obscures beliefs in things that make us happy. In other words Santa Claus,or the promises of religions.
While religions bring hope, they are not scientific. However leaf in a God or universal spirit is genetic, as shown by the great majority cross culturally that believe.

One might say since it is genetic it is scientific, however the rituals and dogma of religions are not scientific. So herein lies the quandary for those who like scientific proof versus the hope that comes from a belief that doesn’t require being right.

Life is short, it would seem that being a happy trumps science that is empty of happy emotions.
