We’re waxing philosophical in our questions today:
- 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
- No human experience can be objective since it is always coloured by perception and feeling.
- Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?
- Humans do have a soul, that is what I have been taught in my faith. As for animals, I would love for them to have souls as I can remember so many dead pets but I don’t think that they do.
- Why are people told to respect the dead? (example: “Don’t speak ill of the dead”)
- Again, this is largely a matter of faith. It is a belief that the sins of a person die with him and therefore should be forgiven and forgotten.
- 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.
- The ideal president in the 21st Century is not an easy person to be. He/she must be impartial, well-informed, compassionate, pragmstic, firm but yielding at the right moments. The ideal president must be many people in one. A protector of his/her countries’ borders and rights the ideal president must be willing to extend a welcome to victims of cruelty as well as natural disasters. I think a whole essay can be written on this topic.
