Algumas perguntas bobas muito bem respondidas!

1. What was in the beginning?

If we assume there is a beginning to reality (not just the universe) then it is probably some form of singularity or something else. We’re not entirely sure, but these are good predictions based on the evidence. Of course, we know so little about time that it is possible there was no beginning.

2. How will life on earth end?

Given that life consists of every organism, it would be very unlikely for any natural event to wipe out every example of life on the planet. Single-celled organisms will probably last until the Sun dies.

3. What happens after death?

Our bodies decompose like everything else that dies. Seeing as death happens when electrical activity in the brain ceases, and it is those electrical signals that power our consciousness, there is no evidence to suggest we can think after this event, let alone have an “afterlife”.

4. What is the purpose of existence?

There is no purpose other than the one you give yourself. There is no grand plan for any of us. We have to make our life choices ourselves, and do what we want to do in life.

5. Why there is order in all of creation?

Give me an example and I might be able to comment on it. However chaos theory pretty much destroys all arguments for order. Nothing in the universe is deterministic, and everything tends to chaos.

6. Why there is morality in every civilization?

Because morality is the active conscious extension of basic instinct. Any social animal has a form of morality. Ours has advanced because of our high cognitive abilities.

7. Why does every civilization believe in a Creator?

They don’t. Just look at Sweden.

8. Why does every sane person have a conscience, even when it is not dictated by society?

Emotions and reactions of people are very easy to read in the same species. A person who has had no human contact will still understand basic emotional concepts merely because they will have, at some point, had the same feelings. Case note: We all smile, laugh, cry, etc. There is variation in all these emotions, but not enough that you cannot tell them apart.

9. How did nothing create everything?

It didn’t. You are the only person who has claimed this. Atheists do not believe this. We have mentioned it before but you never listen.

10. Which came first–the chicken or the egg?

The egg. Although the mother looked very similar to a chicken of course. You’ll probably claim something like the “Chickaroo” existed though.
