How did the Universe begin?

I believe in the big bang theory. There was nothing (or not even nothing) and then there was something.

What is the origin of good?

Goodness comes from logic. If someone understands the world around them, it is logical for them to put good in rather than evil.

What is the origin of evil?

Ego and desire. Selfishness and wanting things makes individuals put others down, rather that be by killing or stealing or even degrading others.

What is the nature of the mind?

This is a good question. I'm not sure...

How do you find happiness?

Get rid of ego and desire. I want happiness. Take out "I" and "want" and you're left with "happiness".

How do you find truth?

What is the meaning of life?

To exist. We were not put here for any specific reason but the obvious answer is to live life to the fullest. Also 42.

What is the role of evolution?

Not sure. The only thing constant in life is change so it makes sense that things change for the better.

What happens after death?

Nothing. It's the same as what happened before we were born.

Who or what is God?

God is us. We are god.

What is going to happen to humankind?

That's not for me to say. Hopefully good things, though.
