These questions are about personal opinions and beliefs. What your answers reveal is nothing more than how you specifically believe. Please do not complain if the question itself upsets you. This is simply asking your opinion. You could always choose not to answer that question if you don't want to give your opinion.

Anyone who fills this meme out is encouraged not to rush through it, but to sit still and actively think about how to answer the question. Take your time.

Original meme (c) Zorua076
My first meme! *confetti*

Every day in my philosophy class, we were asked a question about what we believed in, how we interpreted something, or our opinion. We had to answer these questions on a journal. This meme is simply those questions reposted here (except for one 'cause I missed that day).

Yes, some of these questions can be controversial, especially that last one. But this isn't the place for that. This is just an opinion question. If someone disagrees, well that's their problem. They can fill this out and put a different answer if they don't like your answers.

That question that mentions Spock. If you haven't heard of Spock's adage from The Wrath of Kahn, clearly you're new to the Internet. Plus I pretty much spelled it out in the question.

Here's my filling out this meme as of September 23, 2012: [link]

Questions come from the classroom of my philosophy teacher, Carolyn Lewis, Ph.D.
