Not to put you on the spot, but are you a religious person?
I don’t know. I would like there to be an afterlife. I think it’s a great idea. I sincerely hope that my mother just got on an earlier flight and didn’t just pass into atoms. It sure would be nice if the deeds you commit in this life, you’re either rewarded or punished for in subsequent existence. That would be nice. But the truth is, I have no proof either way. I don’t know.
So you’re a skeptic, but not a cynic.
Exactly. And I’ve had many theological arguments. I once actually dated a very religious Christian girl who was the daughter of a pastor, and we used to get into it. I used to say to her, “Look, I try to be a good person. I don’t lie or cheat or steal. I’ve never consciously tried to hurt anybody. But in your mind, I’m going to hell because I haven’t accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.” And she just didn’t have an answer for that. She’s like, “Well, you know, it’s not too late.” And I think that’s the great thing about Shadow Walk: it doesn’t presume to answer the questions. It just wants to open the door for debate.
