Questioning is more important or answering?

Recommended Posts

This is an interesting question which we faced in a fist for Mathematics some hours ago.(Thanks the questionors)

 

"Questioning is more important or answering?"

 

 

 

I like to know your idea about and your idea about the following answer:

 

When we wish to answer this question, the most important fact is: To answer this question.

So answering(questioning) is more important.

But, if no one answer us this quetion, the most important fact about this question is: to ask this question.

So asking is more important.

 

Is this just a bafeling?(respect to the other possible valuable answers).

If it is not and thats a true word, what about the other answers?the value of them.

A Question only holds more value when one does not know the Answer. Once you know the Answer, the Question now holds less value.

Any proof of that?

 

I was looking at the Rosetta Stone and lots of other Ancient Egyptian script a few days ago and I must admit I didn't notice any interrogation or exclamation marks

I like this line from the I, Robot movie.

 

 

Dr. Alfred Lanning: I'm sorry. My responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

 

Questioning might lead to answering the question. Asking the right questions leads to answering the question.

Questioning without a doubt, It's a fact that we asked questions thousands of years ago we still dont have the answer to. If we didnt ask questions then there would be no answers.
What came first the chicken or the egg? Same sort of thing I think. The question came first.

Minoxidil is an antihypertensive vasodilator medication. It also slows or stops hair loss and promotes hair regrowth. This is an example of a discovery that occurred without first asking the question, "Is it possible to that Minoxidil will promote hair regrowth?"

Accidental ocurrences certainly play a big part, and also there are certain things that are invented and then end up being the pre-cursor to further inventions that we never would have imagined. That's another example.
