Question Answer
If you could travel back in time to any period, and meet any person who is historically significant, who would you want to meet and why?

Da Vinci – one of the greatest thinkers

Out of all the problems that we are facing in our world today, what do you consider is our biggest problem and how do you think we can solve this problem?

Deforestation – has done more to destroy civilization

Do you think it is possible that you and I were put here on this earth for some kind of purpose? If so, what do you think that was? If not, why do you think so?

Our purpose is to reproduce and that’s it. Not much of a purpose really beyond that.

We live in a world that tends to believe, now more than ever, that all religions are equal and no one religion is better than another. In your opinion does it matter what someone believes? If not, why not, if so, why so?

It depends. On what criteria you chose to determine which is better. Religions are distinguished by ceremony, but the fundemental beliefs. I would say Christianity and Buddhism are fundamentally superior to say…Satanism.

All religions have different beliefs about the afterlife but many seem to indicate that we go to a better place, if we do the right things in this life. What do you personally believe about the afterlife and what do you think we need to do in this life in order to get to this better place in the next life?

Always had a tough time with faith, not actions. The idea that there is some sort of magical formula that will earn divine approval doesn’t makes sense. But that you can live however you want to and be righteous through faith also doesn’t make much sense.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez-Jounalist. “If you want people to believe something fantastic, give details.”

Out of all the problems that we are facing in our world today, what do you consider is our biggest problem and how do you think we can solve this problem?

Hunger-but producing more foo will not solve the problem.
Congestion in Edsa – but building more roads won’t solve it either.

Solution: Education and values. Know what you believe in.

Still an issue for internal debate. Maybe just an accident. Just find the path of least resistance. Know thyself. You might be able to help others.

Some are better than others. If the believer is a good thinker then it’s okay. Develop your own philosophies.

The dead are dead. So make the most of what you have. After death we just turn into fertilizers for the soil. Do good. Enrich others.

I do not believe in creationism but in evolution.

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, why is it difficult for us to avoid believing in non-material things like truth, love, beauty, goodness, etc…?

Because we are conscious beings. We have self-awareness. While alive, enjoy life.
