They went viral: The scene took place in the Family Health Unit of the Uj’e Lhavos community, in Philadelphia, Boquerón, Chaco. Two Nivaclé grandmothers armed with their ceremonial canes sang and danced around Dr. Liz Fabiana Zorilla in gratitude for the discharge of the last patient admitted to USF.
The doctor cried, they sang and beat their canes against the floor in unison … This is how science and ancient culture met. Beyond discussing who has (the scientists or the beliefs), what is rescued is the respect that one side professes for the other and vice versa.
The human being is a whole and in that whole, the desire for survival has always found its way both in science and in the belief in something superior.
It’s a fact, quote Gerardo Remolina Vargas in his “Science Philosophy and Faith in Contemporary Debate” that both the affirmation of a Supreme Being and its denial have coexisted throughout human history as an eternal question. That reality will not change as long as there are fans on both sides of the anti-religious and pro-religious border.
Remolina Vargas turns to Freud to explain that “the most important aspect of collective psychology is constituted by ideas or illusions … which not only seek to calm our anxieties in the face of the uncontrollable forces of nature, but also give credibility to ethical systems and moral by associating them with the will of God ”.
In this regard, there are as many paths as there are individualities in that search for the absolute. Rather than getting bogged down in discussions that specifically have no answer, other initiatives seek their own path towards that truth, such as Paraguayan physics. Evelyn Coronel, who is part of the ATLAS experiment of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), dedicated to deepening the study of matter, energy and time using the Large Hadron Collider.
From Sapucai to Germany, she is today one of the participants in the largest particle physics research center in that European country. What connects Uj’e Lhavos, Sapucai and Germany is the application of knowledge acquired in various ways to reach the truth, well-being, the preservation of identity.
In this train, nothing can be ruled out because when there is faith, as Doña Escolástica would say, any stick works, or a cane or a nanoparticle decomposed by means of an accelerator. So whatever you do, never stop believing.
