    I believe my faith has the best answers for these questions...
    who am I? A human called Greg
    where do I come from? a planet called Earth...perhaps one of many in the universe that has the conditions for life amongst a much greater number that don't have such conditions and are thus...desolate
    what is the meaning of life? to postpone not having it for as long as possible...and to do whatever it is that makes me think this is a worthy pursuit
    where do I go when I die? I probably decompose and at some point will be recycled by other creatures

    I belief your faith *does not* have the best answer for these questions πŸ˜‰

    On what do you base your answers if I may ask?

    For starters, do you believe in absolute truth? If so, from whence do you derive it?

    well to no.1) people keep seeming to call me Greg, and I'm pretty sure I'm neither cat, dog, cricket, pigeon and so on...in fact from what I have been able to ascertain...it would appear that human fits best

    no 2) People seem to call this planet we live on Earth...so I refer to it by that name. I also figure that if conditions to support life here did not exist well then I probably wouldn't exist neither...since there would be no conditions to sustain it if I did. I am fairly confident that there may be other planets out there...I bet there's a lot of them. In fact I bet that if one of those planets had conditions too that would enable life then there's a pretty good chance there would be life...seems logical to me

    no 3) I'm alive right now...but lots of people are becoming not alive and people also suggest that I will end up this way too! I don't really like that prospect and so I'll try and avoid it for now. I try to search for things that make me happy because if I was always unhappy then I wouldn't want to live anymore

    no 4) things like chickens, cows, and pigs seem to keep dying and I end up eating them...I also notice that certain things whn they die seem to decompose and my observations of what takes place seems to fit with the idea that other organisms feed on them. I also figure that there is no reason why I shouldn't do the same thing when I'm dead as well!

    This question is meaningless. It's answered by a tautology; I am me.

    Where do I come from?

    Electrical and chemical activity in the brain.

    What is the meaning of life?

    Where do I go when I die?

    I cease to exist.

    You can believe in it without deriving it.

    Do you have any intrinsic value?

    Electrical and chemical activity in the brain.

    I was refering to the origin of life.

    So the meaning of your life is mere existence?

    I cease to exist.

    So that is your destiny?

    What about the problem of whether a synthetic a priori is possible?

    So you are intinsically valuable because your name is Greg?

    So have you found this happiness that you are searching for?
