Oh come on, no one has even mentioned the greatest unanswered question of all time:

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Lolly Pop?

Compared to, say the language for the Second Amendment supporting the right to bear arms, what is the exact constitutional basis/language supporting abortion rights?

(I support fully a woman's right to choose, but I typically throw the above back at folks who get uppity about parsing the meaning of a "well-regulated militia.")

Anyone who ever saw the television commercial from the 70s knows it only takes three.

Why isn't the opposite of overwhelmed, whelmed?

One concept of the reincarnation of souls is that after something dies it comes back higher or lower on the scale of things based on its previous life. For example, if a person behaves badly, he could come back as a dog, but if he behaves virtuously, a peasant could come back as a rich noble or perhaps a well-off merchant. My question concerns the many people near the top of the hierarchy like rich nobles, princes, etc. who behave very badly and we assume are going to pay for that bad behavior after they die. To have gotten to that high position on the reincarnation ladder in the first place, though, they presumably had to behave well through a long succession of lives as they moved up from one to another.

Not all beliefs about reincarnation include that concept of moving up or down the scale of lives, but some do. My question, then, is why? Why would someone who had behaved well time after time to reach that exalted level suddenly start behaving like a right bastard when he should have the least reason to do so?




Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed nonage [immaturity]. Nonage is the inability to use one’s own understanding without another’s guidance. This nonage is self-imposed if its cause lies not in lack of understanding but in indecision and lack of courage to use one’s own mind without another’s guidance.”
— Immanuel Kant

I don't believe it's crazy at all. Although not at the same level as humans, it's obvious that many animals think, and it's natural, I believe, to wonder what and how.

Just last night watched the SCI channel on Black holes and the big bang "Inflation" theory if I got that right. Says everthing we perceive of as space and matter was in that infinitesimal small point of everything. They don't know what caused it to expand but basically it was stated. All space was included in that original point.So in effect when it inflated in many trillions X trillions of a second it was able to exceed the inside space speed of light in inflation........ The guy stating it says it's hard very hard to imagine.
PS forgot the original question. Whats outside the universe? Nothing at all

Here's a little more serious one. If an intelligent design created life on Earth, why are there creatures like earwigs, various biting flies, chiggers, scabies mites, mosquitoes, lice, disease-causing viruses and bacteria, etc.?

In all seriousness, I have asked myself this question more times than you can count. Sitting aside a campfire looking up at the Milky Way and thinking to myself, what's outside of this...and what's outside of that...and what's outside of that? Etc....

Sometimes, I guess, there are no answers.


Stephen Hawking remarked in his book, A Brief History in Time, “In this way, Edwin Hubble worked out the distances to nine different galaxies. We now know that our galaxy is only one of some hundred thousand million that can be seen using modern telescopes, each galaxy itself containing some hundred thousand million stars.”

So, what’s beyond all of this?
