I figured everyone would understand what "the one question" is
The point of this thread is to point out that you can ask "why" SO many times, yet the chain will never end.
What created our universe?
Lets just say the Big Bang.
But what was before that?
You see, all of the technology we have can be attributed to logic, and the laws of science/nature/etc.
I just believe that in order to have a system in where science can, and eventually will be able to explain so many things that allow us do to things
we dreamed not possible, logic will never be able to give us the answers to why we are here and where did everything come from originally.
It is like asking for someone to find a corner in a circle (that is, if the circle is actually "round"). It is not possible, and the answer will
never be possible.
Yet we have all of these belief systems that try to explain everything. IMO, they explain nothing and are only some good stories with great lessons
The title "Logical Fallacy" is a bash towards atheism. Many atheist believe that everything will be understood through science (aka logic). I
believe everything can be explained by science, except the questions I posed before. Therefore, the idea that logic can explain "EVERYTHING" is not
true, and a deceptive lie (fallacy).
Where does the circle of life start? It just is. Has always existed. Unless our definition of logic severely changes, the real answer to that will
never make sense to us, or give us any real meaning as to how it came to be.

Are you sure about that?
The answer to why we came to be?
If anything, it would be to just enjoy life. But that doesn't explain anything.
It seems to me that the way we live life would just become a depressed cycle if we find out how we came to be, and the existence of life itself.
You think if there is some advanced ET civilization out there, that they even know the answers to life's biggest questions? I doubt it.
The lack of knowledge allows the quest and thirst for more knowledge.
With that in mind, there always has to be a lack of it in order to advance intelluctually.

Well honestly if one,the biggest question, cant be answered, can any question really be answered as a fact....or can it all a figment of our
imagination and what we are lead to believe?
Well, that is somewhat what I tried to say.
Since the "biggest" questions (which I have stated previous times in other posts) can't be answered by any means of real understanding, you think
everything else is a figment?
That is where such a logical fallacy comes into place. Everything "BUT" the before mentioned can be solved.
It is not that I finally understand everything. It is just that I finally understand that we will never know everything. NEVER.
Religious followers claim an intelligent designer, but the question still exists, where did he come from? Or do you just accept that - which is a
logical fallacy in itself?
