Philosophical survey

We are students at Carleton College, doing research on people's responses to philosophical questions. By participating in our experiment, you will be helping us learn more about how these responses vary across the population. We would appreciate if you could help us by filling out this anonymous and confidential survey. It will take about 5-10 minutes. These questions might seem unusual to you. Please take some time to read and think through them. Be aware, however, that there is no right answer to any of the questions below.
