We believe that life cannot be fully lived without considering some basic 'religious' issues.
You know the questions people ask:
You can call these questions 'religious' or 'philosophical' - they are probably in a crossover area which belongs to both camps, but does not entirely belong to either. They are not religious questions (like questions about creeds and liturgies), and neither are they philosophical (like questions about the nature of truth or the meaning of freedom). So I put the term 'religious' in quotes to show my uncertainty.
In any case, if we are to function as human beings, we need some kind of answer to these questions. It may be a very poor answer, or an extremely tentative one, but we find it impossible to live with no idea at all whether our life has any meaning. For the most part, it seems that people in the Western world believe that their life does have some meaning and purpose, even though they have no rational grounds for this belief.
