ask “why?” Whack #2

Ask “why?”    Why is not always easy to answer – and you will never be able to get inside someone’s head to discover the “why?” of the “why.”

 Leonardo da Vinci…..

I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand.  Why shells exist on the tops of mountains along with imprints of plants usually found in the sea.  Why thunder lasts longer than that which causes it.  How circles of water form around the spot which has been struck by a stone. And how a bird suspends itself in the air.  Questions like these engaged my thoughts throughout my life.   ~ Leonardo da Vinci

What are you curious about?  What probing questions can you ask? Where can you ask “Why?”

It’s necessary to ask why!  Why are shells on the tops of mountains?  Why are imprints of plants – usually found in the sea – found on mountaintops?

Was the earth so hot after the Big Bang that water formed and then flowed to cool what eventually became the earth?   Were there many Big Bangs?  Were there second and third Big Bangs so the entire universe could evolve, as it’s still evolving?   Could be.

What about the story of  “Adam and Eve” and the tree and the serpent and knowledge and all that silliness?

That Adam and Eve story sounds like a perfectly reasonable “Why?” to me.

(Yes, I am irreverent tonight…..Why?)

Why not!
