Let us know how your assignment went, you know, with this thread being over a year and a half old.

1.) Yes, I do.
2.) No.Why should it be?
3.) Yes, we are, even without any free will.
4.) As long as the science is assumed as the expert there's no way to escape form its criteria of "the correctness".

...this is worth revisiting (thank you, Mr. Glus, for resurrecting the thread).

-----

1.) Do you believe in God?

Yep.

2.) Do you believe that there is some ultimate meaning or purpose to human life?

Yep.

3.) Do you believe that everyone is morally responsible for him or herself?

Yep.

4.) Is the scientific account of the world essentially correct?

Sorta, kinda, mebbe.

Here is the four questions survey...
1.) Do you believe in God?

Absolutely.

2.) Do you believe that there is some ultimate meaning or purpose to human life?

Of course.

3.) Do you believe that everyone is morally responsible for him or herself?

Certainly.

4.) Is the scientific account of the world essentially correct?

Which one?

1 Yes 2 Yes 3 Yes 4 If by scientific you mean Newton's science, no. If by scientific you mean Descartes, Husserl, Bergson, Austin etc, then yes. I believe this is the crux of the matter, that physical science has to change (and Schelling's efforts did nothing towards this goal).

I am going to use your opinions, as a group and basically summarize everyones beliefs into one. The objective of this is to mainly create a discussion with our classmates, and see what beliefs everyone has. Thanks for calls help!

This is an old thread. I'll reply anyway to see that happens.

1. Yes (But not maybe how you think of a G-d.)

2. Yes.

3. Yes.

4. I would say for the number of years man has been on earth, they have done well. And YES up until the part when science realized the laws of physics' change (imagine that) yes, change when you are looking at the quantum field.

If the OP hasn't finished his assignment after 8 years, he's in trouble.
