Now if you'll excuse me, i have to appear in a tortilla in Mexico

Everyone’s seen that Simpsons episode where Homer meets God, am i right? You know the one, where he decides that he’s not going to church anymore and instead stays at home watching TV, resulting in an appointment with 5-fingered God.
The end of the episode sees Homer asking God “What is the meaning life?”, in which God responds with the infamous “Well Homer, the meaning of life is…”, leaving the answer up to your very own opinion.

In light of this, American actor Rainn Wilson, of The Office US fame launched his new project yesterday, SoulPancake.com: a site aimed at getting people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to discuss life’s big questions – without the hippy-dippy side products that come with it. In this interview with Oprah, he discusses his background with the unusual Bahá’í Faith, and his aims for SoulPancake to de-lamify religion and art.

The site itself is in the early stages, with only a few questions raised at the time of writing. Here are some examples to spur your interest:

If you had one hour left on Earth, how would you spend it?
Is religion outdated?
Where do you go to find inspiration?
