Attention all Taoists!  I am looking the most concise, accurate answers you can provide about your religion. 4 questions:  (1) Who (or what) is God?  (2) Who is Man?  (3) What is the Problem? (Why is there evil, suffering, etc.?)  (4) What is the Solution?



Uh... these are all really abstract questions.  Taoism is a lot more concrete than most other paths out there.  We base our "beliefs" (if you can call them that) on reality, not on imagination or chimera. 


But I'd like to give it a shot:


1) Until "God" is defined, this question is meaningless.  There is the superverse, but I wouldn't label it "God."  Waaaaayyy too much baggage comes with that word!


2) Who cares?  We're alive, and that's pretty cool, when ya think about it. =)


3) Main problem for a Taoist: combating negatives


4) Solution to main problem: wisdom, power, virtues
