  2. Comments from todays class: After the memory portion of our group discussion we transitioned to the topic of separation of church and state. Most of us agreed that there should be a separation between church and state, but what was interesting was the reason we all had behind why we should have a separation. My personal opinion strictly relied on the thought of role reversal; I wouldn't like it if I had to abide by the religious laws of some other religion that I didn't necessarily agree on. It generally causes problems - as one group member brought up: the LGBT community.

    FQ's:
    1. (T/F) Voltaire agreed with the German philosopher, Leibniz.
    2. Instead of focusing on abstract philosophical questions, what did Voltaire believe humans should do?

    DQ's:
