Street Lamp's Glow--A Well Known Allegory

A man walking down the road at night came upon a man looking frantically in the same spot ground over and over again within the circle of light cast on the ground by a street lamp.

man 1: Have you lost something?

Man 2: Yes, I've lost my keys.

Man 1: Are you sure you've lost them here?

Man 2: Not at all, but I know I shan't find them elsewhere!!

How might this allegory teach us something in these fields: theology, science.

Where are we settling for easy answers?

How can we be more honest about our limitations?

How might we venture outside of the lamp's glow?

What 'flashlights' might we bring?
