    I am a student looking for some people to help me answer a few questions, the only restriction is you not be Christian.

    Please only earnest replaies

    1. (Origin question): How do you describe the origin of the human race and the world?

    2. (Identity question): Who are “we” as the human race?

    A. Are we an accident?

    B. Do we have intrinsic value?

    3. (Meaning/purpose question): What is the meaning and purpose of life?

    4. (Morality question): Where does the idea of right and wrong come from?

    5. (Destiny question): What do you think happens to people after they die?

    A. Do you believe in heaven and hell?

    B. Who decides or how does one get to heaven versus hell?

    6. What is your opinion of Christians in general?

    7. If a Christian were to sit down and talk with you about their faith, what would it take to convince you that it was worth looking into or accepting?

    I wonder what is thev purpose of your research? Are you a representative of a certain religeous group?
    For all 7 questions I give you a simple answer: Humans are an elevated animal with a lot of imagination, which gets exploited for the benefit of a few.

    Yes sir that is an easy answer but the class I am taking is apologetics_500 - or to some APOL120.
    I am looking for true thought full answers, I cant answer them because I'm Christian, the Idea is to understand your world, what others think from their point of view.
    We cheat others their view when we don't hear them, there is no right answer only what you think, but the questions are valid even to Christians but because I am one Christian my view would be similar to anyone that holds that same view, so they are telling me something I have already heard.
    I am not looking for arguments or exploiting views but my view is not complete without knowing about the others that exist.
    So though your view is valid it doesn't truly help me understand it.
    I do thank you for your reply, Matthew

    That's how most kids come to be.

    It be pretty much equal to our cash value.

    To procreate then die. And that's the history of life in a nut shell.

    A social animal comes up rights and wrongs that maintain harmony in the community.

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

    A. Do you believe in heaven and hell?

    B. Who decides or how does one get to heaven versus hell?
    Beurocrats even after death??? Dreadful!!

    Sorry to say my line gives you all the answers; think between the lines.
    The problem you have is that you are are already pre-programmed and indoctrinated; sorry your hero was just an human being nothing else.

    In violation of the stated rule of only posting non-christians views on thread I plead guilty, but I firmly believe that trying to explain or answer questions of the exsistence of God because of a lack of tangible evidence is like trying to explain the concept of Infinity,(the state of being, not the car) ,if you can answer one then you can answer the other.

    I think the real question is "what would it take to cobert someone?". And that's a fun question.

    Infinity = no start-no end

    "Woven" you disappoint me; I guess your answer on item 7 should have been a real American answer: what are you donating in my election fund? (and of course in my own bank account?)

    Dutch

    You should have said "I am but a poor preacher who has taken a vow of poverty. Your tastes are way above what I have. Try the Vatican, they have that and more."
