    Do we like to identify with these groups because we as human beings, the social animals we are, like to identify ourselves with a higher collective?

    Or are we genuinely passionate about these issues?

    I think they relate to people's development and maturation, on both an individual level and at a societal level

    The different belief systems are at different levels in the hierarchy

    I think deep down we are afraid, sometimes we are afraid what will happen when we die, heaven hell scenario, so we get attached to God/Church, generally people will choose church/temple etc where they can go often and the circle they are in, sort of community feeling so they dont feel afraid, If we are lonely we will get afraid, I think a person will join anything as long he feels secure and safe. !

    If you don't believe in anything what is the point in continuing to exist?

    There is no point? Why does there need to be a point? I don't believe humans as a species have any point to exist. We arrived here by chance same as any other animals. We're just serving our time here, and once we are done, something else will take our place.

    A 'meaningless' life, for me, is not any less fulfilling. I have a pretty amazing life. I've traveled around the world, met great friends, had good times. My life doesn't need a meaning or purpose. I just take it as it comes. (That's what she said?)

    It seems to me that you purpose in life is to enjoy yourself while you serve your time.

    What drives you to visit the world?

    Yeah i'm a self - described hedonist. It's not my 'purpose' as such. I also want to find a nice, challenging career that pushes me outside my comfort zone.

    I'm a people person. I'm fascinated by food, music art culture. Travelling gently exposes these things to me as opposed to reading about it on the internet, which is a bit too much.

    Do you believe that you can find a challenging career?
