An interesting perspective, though not one I completely share with the author. I believe strongly in God and His goodness, however I also believe that we weren't created to die. So I'm intrigued by the presentation of the possibility that death can be thwarted.....that being said, I am willing to present different opinions on my blog. That's what gives life character!
"There is no good or evil. We classify things into good and evil because we are currently unable to solve the two problems of the world: death and dearth. If there ever comes a time when we can solve these problems, we won't be required to do this anymore.”

Interview with Dr. Laurencius:
1. Please tell me about your book and why you decided to write it. I'm a medical doctor. I've seen many deaths. Some are young people, most are old people. I'm appalled at our believing the Gods depicted in the scriptures and here I'd like to open our eyes and make us see the fundamental error that these scriptures have, therefore they will come to a conclusion that these scriptures are merely notes written by people of the past, and not by God. The world is evolving and knowledge is the only thing that can enable us to choose. Without knowledge, we can not exercise free will against diseases, pain, and ultimately, death. It occurred to me that we are what we are because, and what we produced was the product of what we know -- and sadly -- of what we don't know. Now that we know, we have to change. Free will exists in the simplest form of choice, the choices that we can do only because we have evolved. Before 1906, a person who was diagnosed with tuberculosis was simply waiting for him/herself to die. But after Calmette and Guérin achieved the first success in immunization against tuberculosis in 1906, we were able to exercise free will against tuberculosis. Here we see, free will can be used for good, and free will toward goodness can only be achieved through knowledge. Death will hurt us. If it hasn't, it will. The main purpose of this book is to let us realize that there is a way to defeat death! I am a medical doctor and know this: it can be done. 2. Do you have any works in progress? If so, what are they? Currently, no. 3. What do you hope to accomplish by publishing your story? I hope all people will read it and support a research in neuroscience to defeat death. 4. What would you like your readers to know about you? I'm just a regular boy with a big heart. 5. Preferences: Night or day? Camping or a resort? Gourmet or fast food? Coffee or cocktails? I must say day, resort, gourmet, and cocktails ;) 6. If you could give me one piece of advice about life, what would it be? Innovate! Because you could be our last hope.
