Posted by: Christine Bulson
BigQuestionsOnline.com is a publication of the John Templeton Foundation which has the motto, "How little we know, how eager to learn." The foundation is also known for its grants to individuals and institutions in the areas of creativity, freedom, gratitude, love and purpose. It also annually awards the Templeton Prize with winners including Mother Theresa, Charles Colson and the current recepient Francisco Ayala. BigQuestions follows the Templeton philosophy and has invited columnists, bloggers and even video contributors to discuss issues of this century. Three of the most e-mailed articles are "Do Happy Parents Really Exist," "Steve Jobs: Shaman and Sorcerer," and "An Eye in the Biggest of Skies," which discusses discoveries of the Planck satellite. The Templeton site illustrates that the web can educate as well as entertain.
