What mystery do you want solved during your life or to understand after you die?

Asked by Supacase (14563points) March 6th, 2010

If there is an afterlife, I have often hoped the ability to understand all of the mysteries and things that fascinate, confuse or disturb me is part of it. I want answers to so many things! Just a few of the less important, pure curiosity ones are

The Bermuda Triangle
What exactly happened to Amelia Earheart?
Too many things about the paranormal to even list

I want to know what my career choice should have been….basically I want to know what I want

talljasperman's avatar

or how to come back from the dead


Actually the mystery I want solved is knowing what lies beyond death. I don’t want a religious answer. I don’t think that mystery will ever be solved as long as I am alive. Lol.
Another mystery I want solved during my life is whether there is other intelligent life in the universe. I long for the day when I find out there is intelligent alien life on other planets.

Who really killed President Kennedy and that the “magic bullet theory” was just a hoax to satisfy the American public that only Oswald was the lone assasin. it never happened this way and i hope the real truth is reveiled before my death.

Though I suspect I already have the answer to this, I’d like to know the purpose of human existence and the suffering that inevitably occurs because of it. My answer: nothing.

Well, first, if after life do we live forever? If so, won’t that get boring? Is Sunshine in mRemember the Titans gay? Why do people think the universe doesn’t go on forever??? Why is it so hard to believe? What it’s like to have twin telepathy. What it’s like to be shot directly through the head (unless that’s how I die), the kennedy assassination, is there aliens (I’m pretty posotive there are), what was before time began, why does amything exist (this is my favorite. Why is there anything at all, just nothing, but nothing wouldn’t be a word, there are no words, there is NOTHING at all) there is some dysfunction im some peoples mind that i forgat what it was called, but it’s that all of your senses are muxed, like you hear with your nose, and hear things with what you taste and stuff, what would it be like to have that but you only got it when you were 20 and you werent used to it.

@phillis Why is Vanessa such a bitch?
This is the greatest mystery in life. I’m sorry, dear. You’ll never know.

Brian1946's avatar


“Why is Vanessa such a bitch?”

I’d say that the answer to that is she’s very frustrated because she doesn’t know the answer to this! ;-)

Vunessuh's avatar

@Brian1946 Indeed. The lack of an answer to my question contributes to my bitchy tendencies.

Genesis1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

Ok, the moon is not a light, and does not rule the night. So what were the two lights?

VenusFanelli's avatar

The Bermuda Triangle is the subject of a hoax, and Atlantis was the subject of a fable created by Plato, so there is no real mystery about them. I wonder who was Jack the Ripper and who killed the Black Dahlia.
