My Personal Beliefs
1. What are you? How do you exist? I believe I am a product of evolution over millions of years, and pretty much almost everything else that scientific research has found. I am a human that came from many other humans.

My personal belief is that someone has to stay humble, even when they find success, to be a “good” person, but I don’t think that’s really plausible to put someone in the “good” category. I think if a person is compassionate, humble, nice, etc. then they should be described as those things, and not as just a “good” person, due to the obscurity of the word “good.” Now, I’ve always found that comparing myself to others is usually a bad idea, as there’s probably going to be something that I’m not as adept at as at least one person. But we can compare ourselves to others by looking at accomplishments. For example, Brian has a better grade in Math than Joey. I say this could be a product of many factors (in this example, work ethic and test-taking abilities), but if you really wanted to, you could say Brian is better at Math than Joey. I’m not a fan of it,
