21 If we violate the Lord's Laws are we going to suffer or even die?

The laws of the " lord " are nature. Nature teaches us that only the strongest survive in nature and this can be even the stongest of mind! ( strongest doesn't Always mean force ).

22 What is the meaning of 'Right' and 'Wrong?'
23 If red looks like red to me, does the same colour look any different to others?

Yes. Light is the source of all colours. They reflect selectively the lightwaves of the colours we seeing. The other selective part is absorbed. About the colour red ; light has his origins in atoms. When an electron is vibrating ( that's because of the gravity outside the atom ) the energy will rise in the atom and the electron will go from the most stabilized ( the nucleus or heart of the atom ) to the less stabilized part of the atom wich is more away from the nucleus. Because it's more unstabilized the vibrating of the electron will lose energy and create waves of light. The lenght of the wave is determined by the energy inside the atom and the energy coming on the outside of the atom. The Hydrogen atom will Always produce waves ( because of his given energy value and the temperature the energy produces for that atom) that the human eye will see as red light. So, if you looking at red you're really looking at lightwaves produced by hydrogen atoms wich is the same for everybody ...more

24 Is there something more bitter than the death?

Ignorance is not the enemy of knowledge but it's rather the illusion of knowledge that is

Yes, there is. The blindness of the ignorance is more bitter than the death!

I do not fear the bitterness of death, I fear the bitterness of life.

25 Are humans capable of more?
26 Can we one day control time?

No we can't. Time like we know in everyday life is just a division or grouping to make it us easy. We could easily say that a summers day last 28h and a winters day 18h for instance but that would be very inconvenient. Time can be measured on a universal scale however since it's related to the speed of light. When atoms will go faster than the speed of light we would get pure energy ( a theory by Einstein ). And this we can't control of course because it would means at that moment that we can control the speed of the planets, the lightwaves, the soundwaves and so on. This would be ridiculous to say or even to speculate. To answer the question of we can control it one day is without a doubt NO because universe will stop to exist. And if we don't exist then who?

Isn't time a concept created by humans? Then doesn't it mean that we're already in control of it?
But not talking about the creation of humans called "time" but the complex meaning we imagine / see behind it : I'm pretty sure we'll be able to control time. After all, why not? - Lesius

27 Are people good or bad?

People are nature and I don't think nature would crate something bad. The human race is just different to other animals... We are intelligent in an other way. And we are egoistic. We get born good and some of us turn bad but in everyone at the end of their lives is a good and a "dark" side.

Good or bad is a pure ethic question. What can be bad for some people can be good to others. I think the best ethic answer is the one that the philosopher Kant has proposed : " If everyone would do what I'm thinking to do will it be good or bad for the human condition? ".

28 How much truth actually remained about the forming of the bible and how much history was omitted to let the church control peoples lives through religion?
