Biology studies the science of life. I don't how a field of study can be called truthful or not. You don't really "discover" a field of study like Biology or Chemistry, it's just a discipline.

I think you mean there are biological theories that you may not be sure are valid.

This is not a religious matter, but if that's what you believe, that's fine with me.

I thought of this topic when I was listening to a radio music, and the album has like "Born to die", and that's where it triggers me to think about this. I started thinking why bother the cycle of life when we all know that we have to die some day.
SURPRISE, OP; it's not all about you! We're here in part to help each other through this experience called "life". Look at how many people struggle with it. How different everything could be if we lent each other a helping hand, instead of cheating, stealing, back-stabbing and turning our backs on each other! We could have heaven on Earth, but instead---look at this mess! What are you waiting for? Roll up your sleeves and find something helpful to do.

haha...it is not about me at all. I understand this concept in my starting 20s, so I am good with this. It is easy to say we can lent one another a hand, yet it is so hard to do. Is easier to say than actually getting it done. While I'm making a post about this topic, I am still doing what I normally do, try to help as much as I can, and contribute as much as I can for the society. Life come and go.

Yes! That's what I meant, sorry for the confusion. The validity of research could be 100% correct, but what makes it 100% correct? There's like tons of questions to ask how certain things work, but that's not the topic of this post.
