What I have learned about persuing truth

It can sometimes be a painful and even lonely experience. Its not always easy and fun like they say in the science text books. I’m not talking about creationism and evolution here, which is actually quite fun to think about. I’m talking about other things . . .like facing uncomfortable truths or dealing with human bias. This compounded by the fact that so many would rather feel good than find a truth no matter how pleasant or painful. Although I understand why this might happen, it does not help us get to the truth. I wonder what would happen . . . if a bunch of emotionless robots were created to objectively discover and share truth. What kind of belief system would they adopt?
