Truth is the bomb. What is true about this question/matter/topic? I don't care too much about what's popular, though that can be a useful indicator of what might be true.
So, since science, math, theology, philosophy and engineering all have truth embedded in them - what is true about nature, about numbers and operations that involve them, about God and how He does things, about all reality, about how to best solve problems - I love these things.
Again, the third may not be popular, but what does that matter if it's got truth in it?
