cuz if we never ask these questions or never question whats goin on, then change will exist, and we shall always be governed by a controling party. Dont ever say its not worth it, for if word passes quickly enough, it can spark a wild fire, one big enough to catch the attention of those it reflects.

we may not be able to change the world, but someone somewhere will be able to. if we dont ask the questions, then they may not know that there is a problem.

The only problem now is we don't know good from evil

In order to change the world you must be able to answer the question what is good?

you said that the only way to positvly change the world is by answering a qeustion as if that is the undiniable truth. how can you be so sure. maybe your wrong. i hope you are. i dont think god has anything to do with it. i think people have everything to do with it. we are the ones killing each other. not god. we are the ones detroying our planet not god. we are the ones with our heads in the air not god. no. not even we. you. i dont meen you directly, just not me. i, as scary and arrogent as this sounds, think that i am getting alot closer than most people. i dont know what to. but im getting closer. maybe thats what we need to answer. what are we getting closer to. please help me find an answer. and please dont use religion, thats just to easy, no, i just want something uniqe. something diferent. something closer. and we can please everyone. its just a matter of trying. go out tommorrow and please someone. tell them what i just said, and tell them to please 2 people, and so on and so forth. its not orriginal or "closer", but its something. iv'e got more but this sis getting long. so....yeah.

We question because we are curious. We are highly sophisticated organsisms. The "great mysteries" become topics of personal research. With an open mind, answers (or reasons) can be obtained from the environment and the Universe. This way one can take life's path, using their own desires as a guide, independently of a faith-based god. And as a result one can obtain self-actualisation.
