Musings and Meanderings
Friday, February 10, 2006
1.) Do you believe in God or a higher power?
I do not believe in God or a higher power. I believe in science and the inner workings of the Universe. Actually I am a "christian existentialist" with trappings of the Tao and Zen. However if you say that God is the total workings of the Universe, like the Deists, then I do.
2.) Are good and evil just concepts, or real powers in the universe?
Good and evil are real concepts, for every positive energy in the Universe there is a negative.
3.) What is your view on forgiveness?
Too err is human to forgive is divine. I am a big believer in forgivness, and really cannot even hold a grudge.
4.) Do organized religions do more harm than good?
It is a mixed bag. For every Jihad or Crusade there are missionaries of all faiths bringing better living conditions to the less fortnuate. Overall the are a positive in modern human times.
5.) If you had a day to spend playing God, what would you do?
Stop global warming. Cure Aids. Then have dinner.
