I have a long time solicitor friend, Dave Stang (now retired), who is planning a course on “The Five Big Questions.”

As is his wont, he has solicited me, and others, on how we would answer the questions he will present and discuss with the group he and a colleague are ‘conducting’ in October.

So, I thought I’d throw out these questions to MillersTime readers to see if any of you would be willing to take a shot at answering one or two of them, or even all five. I have just sent him my answers to his “Five Big Questions.”

Even if you don’t want to answer these questions, you might have some suggestions for articles, books, films, etc. that Dave might include in his syllabus that speak to one, or more, of these five questions. I’m sure he would appreciate any suggestions you might have along those lines.

If you are interested, I suspect Dave would be willing to send a link to his syllabus, once he has completed it, to any MillersTime reader who wants to see it.

You can write Dave directly (davidpstang@cs.com) with your answers, suggestions, ideas, and/or request for a syllabus.

The Five Big Questions:

1. How do I know what I think I know is actually true?

2. Where did I come from?

3. Who am I?

4. What is my life’s purpose?

5. What happens to me when I die?
