If I were to attempt to list all the things of which I have no knowledge, then that would take forever, especially since there are things that I don’t know I don’t know.
Here are some things that I wish I knew more about, or at least could understand. If it were possible to master these subjects, my self-esteem might go through the roof. Some may even call me a “know-it-all” in a non-derogatory way!
- How only three knobs (valves) and two lips can play an infinite number of musical notes.
- How people get clean in dirty bath water
- Hot flashes and why women hate them in the winter
- Why are things like Pi, things that have no answer, so dadgum important?
- If animals in cartoons and movies can talk to each other in English, not to mention read, then why can’t they just write a note to humans when someone is in danger?
- Women (in general) and why they wear “natural” makeup to look not natural
- Greek grammar
- Who killed Kennedy
- Why Democrats keep getting elected
- Why do I have to balance my budget? Why can’t I just decide to increase my debt limit?
- Why dogs and cats hate each other
- Why I could never pick up a snake by the tail, but Steve Irwin could
- RSS feed
- Why mega-church pastors with a full staff only have to preach once a week, while bi-vocational pastors without staff preach at least twice
- How the first person decided that drinking something fermented, breathing something on fire, eating something coagulated, or using the anal glands of a beaver for flavoring (castorium) was an appetizing idea
Life is full of persistent, nagging questions. Some questions may never be answered. I may never truly be a know-it-all. However, when it all comes down to what’s most important, I am reminded of the words of a man who was blind from birth: “I was blind…but now I see.”
I may not know everything, but I know that I will be OK when I die. I know that this world is not all there is. I know that heaven awaits me when I die. How? It’s all written in the Word of God, the Bible.
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. – 1 John 5:13
