SYW Share Your World and the questions are below; with my answers. Nice to know that someone wants to know what I think. I love it!
- Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not? (Now for the people who may not understand that idea, this is what objective means (definition wise): Something that is not influenced by personal feelings or opinions).
If no, there is no anything as Truth or Facts, just whatever pleases man, like we have today.
- Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?
Humans have an immortal soul that will live forever either in Heaven or Hell at the end of time; Animals have a mortal soul that dies when they die. However, I like to believe that nothing on earth is more significant than what is in Heaven, therefore perhaps animals are in Heaven, hopefully for those who make it to Heaven God will allow our pets to be there, wishful thinking on my part.
- Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”)
Because God has already judged them.
- Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader. Saying ‘anyone who is the exact opposite of a certain orange skinned creature’ is cheating. While (to me) that’s a true statement, there’s more depth to the question than to reduce it to one sentence.
An ideal leader, in my opinion, is anyone who keeps or at least TRIES to keep the ten Commandments, since if that should ever happen, we will be blessed by God and have peace throughout the entire world. Not just talk about it but encourage it. We don’t live in a perfect world, and my ideal is a dream, so I will continue to vote for the lesser of the two evils.
