Earlier today I posted a blog discussing why the phrase "I don't know" is so ingrained in American society specifically and just society in general. From this posting, the idea came to me to create a survey to see if people would answer "I don't know" to any questions. I am going to create a survey that can be taken online, asking questions about science, religion, history, and how the world works, that the average person should be able to answer.
I want to see how many will answer "I don't know," or "God did it," or just make stuff up. I don't care if the made-up answer is right as I am looking specifically for the answer I don't know.
The reason I am posting here is I am looking for ideas for questions to be asked. I think this would be an interesting idea to see what people answer, and I would like them to be able to submit comments to an email address after the survey, so if anyone knows how to do that, please get in touch with me.
If we came from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?
Tide comes in, tide goes out .. can you explain that?
Where did the moon come from?
I have an invisible red monkey called Bob who sits on my left shoulder 24/7 and we talk. I know he exists. Do you believe me?
I was having a similar thought discussing the topic of 'agnostics' today...
If agnostics can't 'know' about gods... then surely it would be hard to 'know' anything... which begs the question:
Can an agnostic serve on a jury? Since jurors need to state BEYOND THE SHADOW OF A DOUBT that the accused is guilty.
I was trying to imagine a legal justice system run by agnostics... no criminals, since 100% certainty is impossible... hey! now that puts a new spin on things!
