Part One (one half to one page double spaced): Choose one of these two moral dilemmas to
write about:
1.
You are a police officer who has received a number of messages from various reliable
sources that a terrorist group is going to explode a gigantic bomb the next day in some very
crowded market place, although where is not known. A high-ranking member of that terrorist
group is in your custody, and when you question him about it, he sneers and laughs at you as if
he knows all about it. You have complete authority over what happens next. You can torture
him any way you wish for information, and none of this will be revealed to the public. What
should you do?
Evaluate this situation from both the paradigm of Judaism and the paradigm of a culture
whose people believe they have the bloodline of a god they worship.
2.
You are an eyewitness to a crime: A man has robbed a bank, but instead of keeping the
money for himself, he donates it to a poor orphanage that can now afford to feed, clothe, and
care for its children. You know who committed the crime–in fact, he is a friend of yours. If you
go to the authorities with the information, there’s a good chance the money will be returned to
the bank, leaving a lot of kids in need. What do you do? Why?
Evaluate this situation from both the paradigm of a Buddhist and the paradigm of
Christianity.
Part Two (one to two pages double spaced): You must write about this very short story,
applying the paradigm of the goddess theory:
Demeter and Persephone
Zeus, King of all the Gods, had three sisters: Hera, Queen of the Gods, was also his wife and the
Goddess of Marriage; Hestia was the Goddess of Home and Hearth and Demeter was Goddess
of the Harvest, responsible for the crops and for feeding the people.
Demeter was loved by all humans for her gift of soil and gentle, mild weather to grow their
crops. They worshipped her for her caring and kindness. She was very much a ‘hands on’ and
‘happy to help’ sort of Goddess. Persephone was Demeter’s only child. Like her mother, she
was kind and caring, with a happy nature and the most dazzling smile. She was the sort of
person who spread light and happiness wherever she went and so, naturally, she was loved by

was kind and caring, with a happy nature and the most dazzling smile. She was the sort of
person who spread light and happiness wherever she went and so, naturally, she was loved by
everyone but most especially by her mother.
Hades, mighty ruler of the Underworld, had spied her on one of his trips to the world above. He
was dazzled by her beauty, her elegance and her charm. He decided that he must have her as
his wife. Knowing that Demeter would never agree to her daughter living with him in his
gloomy world of the dead, he decided to visit his brother, Zeus, to discuss the matter.
Surprisingly, the great god Zeus agreed to Hades’ plan, to abduct the young woman and take
her to his realm. He rode his chariot to the upper world and kidnapped her. At first,
Persephone cried and cried, until she had no more tears left to weep. She refused all offers of
food, for she had heard the legend that those who eat in the Underworld can never return. So
she determined not to let a morsel of food pass her lips.
In revenge on Zeus, Demeter withdrew all of her fertility power from the earth, so the earth
turned dry and barren, and people began to die. Finally, Zeus agreed to allow Persephone to
come back to the living world. But Hades made Persephone feel sorry for him because of his
loneliness in the underworld. Before Hermes could come and get her, Hades held a
pomegranate in his hand and said, “Persephone, my love, I am so worried that you will fade
away if you do not eat. Look at this sweet fruit, taste just a little for pities’ sake.” Looking deep
into his eyes, the girl carefully reached out her hand and took the luscious fruit to her lips.
Deliberately, she swallowed a few seeds, just six.
That is why Persephone can only come back to the living world six months out of the year and
the rest of the time she keeps Hades company in the underworld for the othr six months.
