What Is the Meaning of Life?
Inquisitive individuals discussed the matter last night, and they’re still not sure.
The Center for Ethic and Religious Affairs held its first interfaith dialogue, “What Is the Meaning of Life?” last night at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center.
Representatives from six on-campus religious groups communicated their beliefs in hopes to provoke responses from the attendees. But when the discussion leaders opened the floor for discourse, silence ensued!
Taking the initiative as I always do, I asked… well, I’ll let the Collegian finish my thought:
At the end on [sic] the night, one student asked all the groups about their views on where people go when they die.
Thanks for getting my name and major, jerks.
Regardless, the religious reps did respond, but no attendees saw fit to debate the issue (except Rev. Alfred Patterson, who exulted the existence of Hell).
If people who attended an “interfaith dialogue” lack significant religious views, what does that say about Penn State as a whole? Who are we, and why are we here? As students and as humans, we need to consider these paramount questions.
