Jesus because, if he was there, you would know he was true and would believe.

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?

Lack of education. We need to teach people to live together.

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?

It is hard to say. Our purpose should be to look out for ourselves and extend a hand to somebody.

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 does not matter as long as they do not harm anyone by their belief system.

I hope there is. No one can know. How you live now matters.

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, where do you think we came from?

We come from aliens or evolution. We are evolving to who we are now. People are products of their environment. People do not think. Everything is sound bites. We become sheep. Moral values fall out. There is too much political correctness.

I would want to meet Moses because of his bravery and love for his people

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?

Our biggest problem in the world is our divisiveness. The only way to overcome this is to be accepting of others and to be how God intended us to be; loving, kind and accepting. Only God can judge us and we need to stop judging each other

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?

Yes; I think my purpose is to raise God LOVING (not God fearing) young men

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?

I absolutely believe that all religions are equal. According to Judaism, we are the Chosen peoples but I don’t necessarily think that is so. Jews have been persecuted so much throughout history by the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, by modern day Christians….why would I believe we were the Chosen people when we can’t seem to catch a break? The answer is equality, love and acceptance.

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?

I do not believe there is an afterlife.

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, where do you think we came from?

I do believe I came from God.

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…?

Why wouldn’t we believe in non-material things? These are the ultimate gifts from God.

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?

Jesus. I feel like he could tell me where we screwed up and tell us how to begin a healing. I also think that a solid word from him could stir the hearts of ‘Christians’ and cause a movement in the Christian church to aid the healing of this world.

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?

The disregard for all life; human, anima, and plant. Get rid of our monetary system and get back in tune with nature

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?

Yes. To better the lives of those around us and give hope and love to the hopeless and unloved.

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 doesn’t matter what each of us believes as long as we believe in something. Belief in something more than ourselves, be it a supernatural being or an internal power, it encourages us to be better people.

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?

I like the idea that the afterlife is a place of happiness with no pain or suffering where we are all equals. To get to the ‘better place’ o think we need to live a less selfish, less self centered life and be light and love to all our brothers and sisters on this Earth

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, where do you think we came from?

I don’t know if that place really exists but I feel that we should be living in that sort of place now if we lived unselfishly with an open eye and agape love.

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…?

Nikola Tesla because of his brilliance and inventions.

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?

Religion and apathy. Religion is one of the only things people will kill and die for and taken to an extreme can cause global wars. Apathy because people acknowledge so many wrong things in the world like world hunger, global warming, crime, religious intolerance, etc but lack any interest to do anything to stop it.

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?

It’s possible but not something I linger on

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 does not matter to me what someone believes in, but it does matter on how they try to enforce or impose their beliefs on others.

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?

I’m not too sure if there is an afterlife. Do I hope there is? In some form, yes. However, I try to live each day in the moment and be a better person to my friends, family and strangers through that. Constantly lingering on whether or not there is an afterlife and working for something that you have no proof even exists, devalues your current life. I’m not too sure where we came from.

If you do not believe there is life after this life is over, where do you think we came from?

Now it’s not hard to find people today who believe man was created from a God and woman from a man’s rib bone, or that we were seeded from extraterrestrials or that we could have evolved from single cells in some boiling pool of water billions of years ago

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…?

Non-material things satisfy our spiritual needs, just like food and water satisfy our physical needs. That is why we find it hard to avoid them
