RE: Questions for atheists
1) what is prime reality? (the thing from which everything else comes)
Example: God
We don't know.
2) what is the nature of external reality?
Example: external reality is the universe which God created out of nothing.
We don't know.
3) what is a human being?
Go ask Chas
4) what happens at death?
Go ask Chas
5) why is it possible to know anything at all?
Go ask Chas
6) how do we know what is right and what is wrong?
Go ask Chas
7) what is the meaning of human history?
Example: history is a meaningful sequence of events that lead to God's will.
What's with these god examples?... Go ask Chas.
8) what person, life orienting core commitments are consistent with your worldview?
Myself. I don't know of anyone else who has the same life orienting core commitments that are consistent with my world view. The sentence structure allowed for this response. And many Bothan Spies died.

Why is this thread 9 pages long instead of 2 posts?

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Questions for atheists
I noticed people were struggling with question 8.

I think it's a typo.

How would you answer it if it was:

8) what personal, life-orienting, core commitments are consistent with your worldview?

Because we don't have a hive mind. Drinking Beverage

Why did you quote me to ask that question? I'm pretty sure you have the answer for that. Sadly, I don't know the answer to your question.
