    What are some challenging life questions to ask people?

    I'm not talking about brain teasers, riddles or math problems. I'm talking about questions that make people think...like there is no right or wrong answer.

    Example: Which is worse. Ignorance or apathy?

    Think about that one for a second.

    List more if you have any and give a reason why it's challenging.

    Ignorance is the condition of not knowing, easily remedied...it's our base condition throughout life.....

    Apathy is knowing but not giving a flying motherfuck....inexcusable when you get down to it...usually it's so embedded in the ego it takes a lot more to fix it....you have to delve deep into the super ego to bring about change////

    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    To be or not to be....existing nothing but existing... but should I live today?

    On the subject of apathy/cynicism, Conan said it well (about 3:25 in):



    Challenging question: Are you where you want to be in life? If not, are you working to get there?

    A buddy has one of these he busts out whenever we are drinking. Its easy to answer at first, then almost invariably people change their answers after a few hours of thinking.

    Which would change your life more? Finding out 100% that God existed, or finding out 100% that he did not?

    How about placing individualism before mindless conformity. Rejecting established societal norms can be costly, but for many, a necessity for happiness. Seems to me we are becoming less and less able to think for ourselves.

    Wondering where to start? Confused? "Homework 1" will get you started.

    Think you're ready for the "next step"? Take this test.

    Is a reach-around an acceptable trade-off?

    Debate questions that are open ended in-which an argument could be made for both sides.

    For instance, is advertising completely ethical?

    On my resume, I talk about all of my strengths while completely leaving out the fact that I have trouble prioritizing work/school ahead of hobbies like working out and sports, or that I drink too much on the weekends...

    The same thing goes for advertising. Skechers came out with the shape-ups that have since become a national hit. They say that the shoe will help tone your legs, but what they forget to say is that the shoe is overpriced, doesn't work as good as they indicate in their advertising, and that there are far superior methods to toning your legs.

    As employers do with our resumes, consumers need to do with the products they're intrigued by.

    Advertising isn't completely ethical, and exercise products (supplements included) are a testament to that. However, in a capitalist society, "don't hate the player (advertisers), hate the game (democracy)."

    I regress. Search hot debate topics and that inhibit critical thinking.

    Interesting post soxmuscle. Reminds me of that old quote-Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others. People buy into things as if they are the gospel truth, when in fact there is some form of deception in most everything, including marketing and politics (and job hunting).
