    Just answer these here questions,

    1) Do you consider yourself a religious person? Yes.
    2)Are there things people should not be able to know about the universe? No, but there are plenty of things it is not possible to know, and maybe we'd be happier if we knew less.
    3)Could it be possible to know exactly what someone is thinking at any given time? Highly unlikely, unless you knew the whereabouts of every atom in their brain and understood incredibly subtle differences in electronic and chemical signals.
    4) Do you believe that there could be a higher being/higher beings overseeing the universe? I have no idea, although any such being would be wholly unimaginable in its true nature.
    5) Do you believe there is a soul independent of the body? No.
    6) Do you believe there is a purpose to life? The purpose to life is life itself and the preservation and expansion of such.
    7) Are there components universal to all forms of beauty?
    I think it would be very difficult to argue this one, but no, specific things of beauty will be unique in how they come to be beautiful.
    8) Should society pursue the goal of equality of opportunity? Society should pursue the goal of maximum total opportunity, and do the best possible job of even dispersal.
    9) Should society pursue the goal of equality of living standards? Yes.
    10) If we encountered extraterrestrial life, would it be acceptable for religious organizations to try to convert them? In an obscene majority of cases, no. However it completely depends on the nature of the alien race, and how much we encounter them.
    11) If something looks like a carrot and feels like a carrot, can you logically treat it like a carrot? If your senses tell you something is something you can do nothing more correct than to treat it as such.
    heh, homework

    Just answer these here questions,

    1) Do you consider yourself a religious person?
    Not particularly.

    2)Are there things people should not be able to know about the universe?
    No; people should learn everything they can.

    3)Could it be possible to know exactly what someone is thinking at any given time?
    No, but you can know the probability of what one is thinking.

    4) Do you believe that there could be a higher being/higher beings overseeing the universe?
    Possibly. Still on the fence for this one.

    5) Do you believe there is a soul independent of the body?
    See above.

    6) Do you believe there is a purpose to life?
    No. Life is a coincidence, an unlikely series of chemical reactions that started purely by chance because the right components were in the right place at exactly the right time.

    7) Are there components universal to all forms of beauty?
    Yes, like symmetry. Symmetry can be physical or abstract.

    8) Should society pursue the goal of equality of opportunity?
    This is treading in a grey area. Equal opportunity, yes. Bringing down standards and bringing down others because they have the intelligence to exploit advantages when they see them, however, is wrong on all levels.

    9) Should society pursue the goal of equality of living standards?
    Yes, though it is unachievable, it gives something to strive for, thus progressing the race as a whole (not all at a uniform rate though).

    10) If we encountered extraterrestrial life, would it be acceptable for religious organizations to try to convert them?
    No, because the existence of extraterrestrial life is not included in any world religions save Scientology, which is not a religion but a joke that only the truly ignorant, stupid, Darwinian Justice-deserving fools lap up as a true belief.

    11) If something looks like a carrot and feels like a carrot, can you logically treat it like a carrot?
    No, because it must smell and taste like a carrot, as well as have the same chemical make-up as a carrot. A well-made wax carrot is not, in fact, a carrot and thus cannot be treated as such.
    Answers are in bold.

    No - parents weren't religious, so was never really introduced to the idea until it was too late.
    No
    Yes - Looking back 100 years the impossible is now possible, so there's no point assuming that it won't be in the future.
    Maybe
    Maybe
    No, it was luck that brought us here.
    Yes
    Yes (depends on how it's pursued - equal opportunities can degrade what others have achieved. Politicians here have put forward an idea that Maori should have direct entrance to University without prerequisites. These people would put a drain on the Uni, overall degrading the quality of teaching. Quality > Quantity)
    Yes - depends on how it's pursued. Throwing money at people that aren't willing to try, those accepting that living on government payments is a good way to live shouldn't have the right to having the living standards of those that have worked hard and made something for themselves.
    No, there's more to a carrot than looks and feel.
    No

    Personally, I think that scientologists aren't even serious.

    Either they are insane, or they are the most dedicated trolls of religion ever.

    Sure man, If I'm eating my own feces in class; I mean straight up ripping that shit out of my ass and eating it, then I'd know that the class would think I'm fucking crazy.

    Sure man, maybe a subconsions even.

    5) Do you believe there is a soul independent of the body?

    Yeah man.

    No. It runs into more shit man.

    Well I eat carrots. Let's say that there's some feces painted orange in the shape of a carrot. It looks and feels like a carrot so why not eat it. get my drift? Of course YES, I love eating feces.

    NO.
