How often do people take the time to question the basic assumptions that underlie their beliefs and worldview? How strong can a person's convictions be if they cannot allow room for doubt in their minds? Is a great deal of conflict generated by people's refusal to question what they believe? Can a person's beliefs be molded in a specific direction?
These are the types of questions the reader will encounter in A Lot of Questions (with no answers)?
In a series of six essays (essays with whimsical titles such as "Make Sure Your Death is Sudden and Violent"), we will discuss topics ranging from religion, to history, to the recent pandemic.
The goal of this book is to encourage the reader to consider not only their own beliefs, but also humanity as a whole. Can humanity overcome its flaws? Are we doomed to repeat history in a cyclical pattern? Is being able to examine our flaws and shortcomings the first step to bettering ourselves (on an individual and collective level)?
This sounds like a lot to discuss in the course of a short book. Indeed, it is, and by no means is this essay collection definitive, but hopefully it is the first step to the reader becoming more discerning.
