@Deborah1,
Nothing does not look like anything. If it looked like something, it would no longer be nothing. It would be 'that thing which looks like. . .'

Why is the word "short" longer than the word "long?"

@Deftil,
If murder's immoral and forbidden, why isn't war? Both Einstein and the 'Red Baron' themself called killing in war murder. And certainly what terrorists do bombing civilian targets is called murder and immoral, then certainly dropping bombs from planes is the exact same thing.

@trayvonte gates,
We contrast stuff with different stuff. In fact, that's the best description of the very abstract concept of information. Information is the measurement of what changed. Stuff is in contrast with other stuff. Nothingness is nothing. A self refuting idea. It cannibalizes itself own existence.

That is basically what he says. He says what we call nothingness is actually something. It seems to be the space that allows us to see the things we call something.

What do you think are the toughest philosophical questions to answer? I'm not looking for your answers (that would be too much for one thread), but I'm looking for your specific questions. What philosophical questions do you find yourself unable to answer? Which ones, if any, do you think are impossible to answer?


Where are my slippers?

Why are you and I unable to answer such a question?

Are some things unknowable?

Do the slippers exist?

@cicerone imposter,
Well, not all socks are happy with their job. Sometimes one sock is more sensitive to dirty feet than its mate is and will flee the situation. If your feet are not dirty and do not smell bad, then it is likely that one sock did not get along with its mate, and so they divorced. As to the question of where they go, all that can be said for sure is that they do not wish to be found. And that is their right.

If evil had its way and got rid of all the good people, how would it exercise its nature? Would it turn on those of its own kind? And if so, wouldn't the oppressed become the new good people and view the oppressors as evil?
