if this is in a wrong thread thing some one plz feel free to move it
(but plz not to the trash)

the path to enlightenment lies behind one of two doors. In front of each door stands a guard who knows which door leads to enlightenment, but one of the guards always lies and the other one always tells the truth. In your search for enlightenment, you are allowed to ask one guard only one question that can be answered "yes" or "no", but unfortunately, you do not know which guard is the liar. You will be banished to the dungeon of logical illiteracy if you fail in your quest.
..What question should you ask to find the path to enlightenment?

i will post the answer when people start asking for it


i also have some other like this but harder i will post them if you get this to easy

Easy:

"If I asked the other guard if you always told the truth, what would he say?"

If the guard replies "no" it means you are talking to the truth teller, a reply of "yes" means you are talking to the liar.

Its simple, you ask them a question you and they know the answer to. For example: "Its it true that you are guarding a door that might or might not lead to enlightenment?" The guy that says no is lying, there for you know that the guy that says yes is the one who is guarding the door to enlightenment. That or take and Ak-47 and shoot them both then look through both doors to find out. LOL

Its a simple case of asking a question which either the lying guard HAS to lie about in the face of convincing evidence, or creates a double negative answer.

Baseball? You are on third base and trying to run home to score but the catcher is there, who is a man with the mask.
