About 20 years ago a book came out called "The Book of Questions". This book contained lots of hypothetical questions that really caused one to think. It was great for social gatherings and produced good conversations. I picked out a few of the questions that I got from the book, and thought it would be fun to ask some of them here being that we are from various regions and different background, and we all know that we have very different views. So, here goes:
Question #1:For a person you love deeply, would you be willing to move to a distant country knowing that there would be little chance of you ever seeing your family and friends again?
Question #2:Do you believe in ghost? would you be willing to spend a weekend alone in a remote house that is supposedly haunted because death occured there?
Question #3:Would you be willing to take the life of a child if you knew this would cure world hunger and end starvation?
Question #4:You are a couple who is expecting your first child. The doctor tells you that there is a 50 percent chance that the child will be blind and deaf. This is your one and only chance to have a child. Would you give up your only chance of having this child because he/she may be blind and deaf? Or would you take the risk and have it?
Question #5:If you could spend 10 years in perfect happiness--having everything you could possibly want out of life, but afterwards would remember nothing of the experience, would you do it?
Question #6:A person that you know successfully
completes a robbery. Although he gets away with ten million dollars, a person dies during the robbery. Assuming this person will NEVER get caught and he/she offers you half the money (and you REALLY need the money) to keep quiet, would you take it? Or would you turn him in and get nothing? By the way, the person killed was a homeless person--a John Doe, and had no family.
Question #7:You discover your wonderful one year old child is, because of a mix up, not yours. When you start to search for your own child you are told it will take at least five years to find your child. Futhermore, you are also informed that it is possible that your child is no longer alive. Meanwhile, the one year old will be removed from your home. Do you risk having the only child you know as yours removed from home in order to wait five years to find your own child that may or may not be alive? Or do you just keep the child in your home and say nothing?
Question #8: Do you think the world will be better or worse off 100 years from now?
I'll stop there. I'm looking foward to reading your answers. Please, lets not flame or start wars over any of the answers. Lets respect everyones answers.
