Sadly, this has nothing to do with the hobby.
I'm in an Introduction to Ethics course and it became clear to me tonight that I might be the only person in that room who's a diehard Protestant Calvinist. It will be interesting when my answer to unanswerable "Whys?" is "It's God's Will."
I know some will see it as a cop out, but no worries — I'm not supposed to have all the answers, nor do I care to question what my God wills me to do and believe in.
Tonight we talked about the origin of ethics and if people are naturally good and bad. First, the term natural causes a stir because it implies morals/ethics are natural things, of course, thus being applied to life from an unknown force. Second, I believe all people are born into sin, thus are naturally bad — it's the way it is, and I know many people in the class will drop their jaws at it, thinking of the poor, helpless babies born every second.
But the one thing I don't expect everyone in the class to understand, grasp or even be able to slightly wrap their mind around is God's Will. Those people would first have to believe in God; second, have an understanding of any religious belief structure; third, and at the very least, have an interest or idea about the nature of God.
Two weeks down, 14 more to go.
