See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So I found these questions "googling around" and thought they were interesting. Anyone up for posting their reply to them? (my replies are in red , not brilliant or anything , just what came to my mind)
1- Why do we call some religions “mythologies” (ancient Greek, Norse, Egyptian, etc.) and others religions? Is this fair? What does this show about how relevant certain ideas are as society progresses?
(my answer) I'm not sure about the first part , I need to think about it. - It's probably not "fair" but so little is anyway. - Isn't everything relevant to other things ? I suppose when I view the world or religion it's all relevant to who I am , where and how I was raised and my experiences with religion etc..I have progressed as I have grown older and my thinking has changed. I started out being a believer in god and now am not. I suppose societies may actually grow up and mature as well and that may change societies way of viewing all sorts of things including religion.
2- Would your life be better or worse if you knew the day, time, and place that you were going to die?
(my answer) I admit I am curious as to when and how I will die , But I don't think i would really want to know. I think if someone said ; "The date and time of your death is in this envelope , open it if you want to " , I would probably eventually open it and regret it. It would suck to really know , I think I would focus on it to much and it would take away from my life. I wish I could say that every day would be more important and I would really spend the time concentrating on living my life to the fullest etc etc but I think that would be a lie and if it weren't a lie , then why don't I do it now since I am pretty sure I will die one day after all.
3- What if God doesn't exist?
I'm an atheist so it wouldn't change my life BUT I think if the world suddenly found out there is no god , that would change everyone life. I think it would be better and some of the divisiveness ( not sure that's the right word) we see in the world would disappear since the reason for much of it (religion) would be gone.
PLEASE post your reply to all or some of these..or add your own questions !!
It could be fun and I'm bored.
