Do we have a free will?

Perhaps. . . Perhaps not. I like the theory of biological determinism, though the counter that we can overcome impulses and urges is compelling. Nevertheless, actions thereafter can be triggered by other biological happenings. To answer the question roughly: no. Though I currently remain uncertain. 

Are you religious, agnostic, atheistic etc? What do you believe? A) How does your belief shape your world/philosophical view? B) How do you view scripture/revelation? C) What is your opinion on evolution?

I do not believe in God. I am morally nihilistic. I value honesty, critical thinking, and education (not necessarily the institution). I have not yet read the entire bible, so I am not able to give a critique. I do not believe in creationism; I think that evolution is a logical explanation (though I have not yet read Darwin's book either).

Do the ends justify the means? If yes, why? If not, why not?

No. One should act according to his or her principles (ideally) with every action, means included.

What is your political orientation (far left, left, center, right, far right…libertarian, apolitical etc.)

No specific orientation.

Have you ever stabbed somebody with a fork just because he/she didn’t agree with you?

Literally, no. Figuratively, maybe.
