No hope

This is Siegfried Sassoon’s niece, supposedly an atheist, describing an encounter with her unckle, after which she became a nun!
“One day, walking in the garden, Sassoon showed her a petal and said: “You have to believe someone created that.” “I recognised at that moment that, yes, someone had,” she says. “Siegfried was right.””

What hope is there for the world when even apparently smart and sophisticated people are capable of such ignorance and stupidity? Ruining their lives because of a lack of knowledge, or a refusal to accept knowledge.
