Reply Wed 5 Dec, 2018 06:53 pm
I have an assignment for a course on Worldview & Philosophy. I am required to ask others if they are interested in sharing their beliefs. The purpose of this assignment is to consider the viewpoints of others and also to write a paper about what we learned. I would be so grateful for anyone's help. All I need is a response to each of the questions below. If you have a particular religion/worldview, please specify and then share your beliefs as they correlate to your religion/worldview.
Thanks so much!

1. Do you identify with a particular religion or worldview?
2. Do you believe in God, a deity, nature, or the universe? If so, what are your beliefs about one of the following? If not, why not?
3. What happens to a person at death? (Heaven, Hell, reincarnation, etc)
4. If you are religious, how does one access Heaven? Why do people go to hell? How does one be reincarnated?
4. What is the meaning and purpose of life? Or is there a meaning & purpose?
5. How do we know what is right and wrong?
6. What is a human being?
7. What is the nature of the external reality, that is, the world around us?

@lincolnscholar2017,
These questions are too open ended to attract a response. One way round that is a 'forced choice alternative ' style, in which you make a number of statements and call for a response along, say, a five point scale from 'agree' to 'disagree'

@lincolnscholar2017,
1. Do you identify with a particular religion or worldview?
I call myself an atheist christian.

2. Do you believe in God, a deity, nature, or the universe? If so, what are your beliefs about one of the following? If not, why not?
I'm in fact agnostic. I don't know about deities.

3. What happens to a person at death? (Heaven, Hell, reincarnation, etc)
We die. End of story.

4. If you are religious, how does one access Heaven? Why do people go to hell? How does one be reincarnated?
They do in fairy tales.

4. What is the meaning and purpose of life? Or is there a meaning & purpose?
None that I can find, but I'm still searching.

5. How do we know what is right and wrong?
By the golden rule, by empathy, by instinct.

6. What is a human being?
An animal with too big a brain for its own good.

7. What is the nature of the external reality, that is, the world around us?
Turtles all the way down, I would guess. That is to say: infinitely complex.
