From the perspective of Zaldy a 25-year-old travel marketeer.
What are we here for?
To be good and to search for the purpose of life.
Do you believe in the Big Bang theory that the now circa-13.7-billion-year-old universe and all that is in it was created by a massive explosion of enormously dense matter at what may have been the beginning of time?No, I do not believe in this theory, because I believe God made the Earth and all things in it just as we see it today. I donâ€™t believe in the big bang or Darwinâ€™s theory of evolution.
If there is a god, where is He?
In my heart. I believe, to be a good person, you need to have good heart, and to have a good heart we should all hold God in our hearts.
Is there a mystery to life?
Yes, because we never know about our future, who will be our husband or wife and when we will die.
Do you think we are alone in the universe?
No. If in this world we live in we can find so many creatures, there must be even more in this great universe.
There is a theory that there may be parallel universes with exact copies of us â€“ doppelgangers – doing exactly the same thing as us right now. What do you think about that?
Parallel world? No. I donâ€™t believe that.
What do you think happens to people when they die?
They will have a new life when their soul arrives in heaven.
Where is your soul and what is it?
It is inside my body. I donâ€™t really know how it works, but I believe that it is formed by the way we act. Good and bad actions will influence our souls.
Science says that all matter and energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Therefore, will our energy, in the form of our soul, live on for infinity?
Yes. Our souls can live on in another form in another time. They cannot be destroyed by anything.
Do you know your place in the universe?
I know it is a small place in this great universe.
Some people believe that because we are made of the same matter as the universe – carbon, and other elements, like nitrogen – anything we ask it will be attracted to us, popularized recently in the movie The Secret. Whatâ€™s your view?
I donâ€™t know, but I believe we can have anything we want if we struggle hard enough for it.
Are we being observed?
Yes, by God.
If there is a god, why does he allow such colossal suffering of people on Earth, either through war, disease or natural disasters?
Because the world needs to be balanced. We are asked to learn, to search for answers and be independent. My religion is very centered around luck, temptation and karma.Filed under: The Big Questions
