And for the both of you...

Is mathematics a human invention, or does it transcend mere mortal cognition? Did we invent "sqrt-2", or has "sqrt-2" been around since the universe was in its infancy, simply waiting around to be discovered by mathematicaly estute consciousness?

Is God a human invention, or is there something greater and omnipotent "out-there"?

Is a chair a human invention, or did we simply discover a concept that has forever existed independent of human consciousness (or any alien consciousness for that matter) and then mold it into its physical manifest via manipulation of matter.

Does right and wrong exist?

If it exists now, did it exist 3 million years ago (or were we released from all liability pertaining to our actions, seeing as how we were lowly apes)?

If two cultures disagree on homosexuality, does right and wrong then become relative concepts? Can both cultures be "right" in their beliefs so long as they "stay on their side of the white line".

Is the use of controlled substances wrong in the U.S. but right in Holland?

Can a childs actions be "wrong" if he was never taught what not-to-do?

Is right and wrong black & white, or many shades of blurry grey?...
