There is hardly a more esteemed person in our day than a "questioner" or "skeptic". There aren't many praises higher than, "that was a good question!". Certainly, many questions are genuine and helpful, even to others, when we ask them. But, sometimes the questions can be more about us and our needs, rather than a genuine quest for knowledge, or answers. Also, when someone has an "answer" people are instantly suspicious and wish they would remain "questioning" like the rest of us. . . . . .
I'm all for good debate and deep questioning. . . (some have called me a skeptic at times. . )But, as CS Lewis said: (paraphrase) "the goal of having an open mind is for that mind to eventually close on something. To see through everything, is to see nothing."
I needed a laugh today, and Portlandia was happy to oblige (as usual). Watch this clip and notice who these questions are actually for, and what their purpose actually is. . . .
