How did the Universe begin?

With God's will (and probably with some help from astrophysics and things I know nothing about)

What is the Universe made of?

According to science, mostly dark matter. To the rest of us, food, money, and other humans.

What is the origin of good?

Staying in your own lane. We will all be better if we can stop comparing.

Is there free will?

Of course. If there is no free will, there is no POINT. And I can't stomach the idea that none of this has a point.

What is the nature of the mind?

I think we tend toward self-centeredness. The mind likes to think of itself as the most important thing in the universe. Probably a good survival instinct.

What is the meaning of life?

To use that God-given free will for good, helping others and lifting up humanity.

What happens after death?

Hopefully we get to meet our maker. That's what I have to go on believing. And hopefully we get some answers to these other questions!

Who or what is God?

God is our maker, our shepherd, our daily inspiration to be better and bring good into the world.

What question is missing?

Does everything actually "happen for a reason"? Even the horrible tragedies?
