Hi. I m a 16 years old high school student and I like philosophy.How can I make my friend who likes IT and physics interested in philosophy?

As you know in Iran, the government and the people dont pay much attention to humanities. Actually there is a sense between the parents that only Engineering and Medicine are important. That view is much worse when it comes to philosophy. My friend thinks it s a non-practical, useless, confusing object. But I have discussed with him about Epistemology and talking about knowing the truth is related to perspective and there is no real truth. Then he said "Ok. I understood we cant know truth about anything then what?" I've told him that if you know all of the sciences but you cant think critically you have missed a big thing. but he just said Ok in an ignoring manner.
