Actually both of you missed the point, its more regarding the view people should have on life. The Red Barron, I want you to know I have nothing against you, I am just frustrated beyond belief at your outlook on learning which is what the quote was meant to focus on.
Without inquisition our society as we know it would not exist, it is people not just realizing the "what", but then going on to discover the "why's" that have gotten us to where we are today. I am honestly ashamed that you haven't even considered asking any of those why's, and I am baffled that you are content just to sit there knowing the "what." I would feel a lot better if you had honestly entertained peoples questions even if it was with a simple "I don't know." I will leave one more quote, hopefully this ones intention is a bit more straight forward.
“Just because we don't understand doesn't mean that the explanation doesn't exist.”
― Madeleine L'Engle
I think you should go back to my posts, and you can find that on more than a few occasions i have answered in those and similar words - that i simply don't know.
And as regarding to the *why* - there are things in life that you will have little chance to find out why. It is my profession to be utterly inquisitive, and at times have to take enormous risks to do that. But there will *always* be a point where you will come to a wall that you can't cross, and will have to learn to accept it.
A blindfold test, as mentioned here, may possibly only exclude what some called a placebo effect (there are other ways as well). It will still not give one clue of the *why* this phenomenon may be so.
I am afraid only a lab test in a well equipped physics lab *may* give you the answer, or more likely not.
But sorry, i am not a scientist. I can't do that. neither am i an eccentric billionaire who would have the money to hire one.
I am just a person that loves tea. No more, no less.
And yes, i truly believe that there is a logical explanation for everything. That though doesn't mean that i have it, or that i would understand it if it is given to me.
