    I voted yes and now it's 100% yes. I don't have to defend myself or anything, either. I smell a trap.

    There should be an "I don't know/ not sure" or something option.

    I voted yes and do not suffer of many doubts. I was just saying that a lot of people might not have a set-in-stone opinion on the subject

    I agree, there should be an option for agnostics.

    That would depend on how much self esteem you have, do you believe in yourself, or not? lol

    I voted "no" because, while I feel there is more to the universe and existence than what is strictly empirical, "higher" is a comparative term insinuating the existence of something separate from the universe.

    In plain terms, I believe more along the lines of the Buddha being the universe than a God/Allah/etc. character who up and created himself a universe.
