There's not enough questions, and too many bullshit answers.

Obviously: too many questions or answers about what?

It seems to be the case that there are more questions than there are answers. Allow me to elaborate: https://youtu.be/jL8fREbIB_g

There are more questions than answers but that is the way it has always been

There are too many of both and not enough good ones of either.
Unless 'answer' means 'right answer' there are way to many. Just walk down the street asking people questions and you'll find a mass of useless answers to anything. And most people ask the wrong questions.

Too many questions.. good, bad, and in-between ones, and not near enough answers.. of any kind.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Wait, What! - MagsJ

Challenge:

portion AAAA Name one question that hasn't been asked before.

portion BBBB Give one answer to a famous question that hadn't been given before.

(Ive voted too many answers; answers are like Idols. Smash them! Keep our questions pure.)

I change my vote to, enough questions.. because questioning things is good, and not enough answers.. because we derive Our reality from them.

I’ll mull over your ‘puzzles’ and get back to you with an answer, Fixed.

It’s not a point of too many questions or answers, but of questioning itself.. there’s not enough of that, if any.

A lack of questioning, equates to cowardice, leading to fear.. just look at the state of the world.

Hoarding resources.. a need to control.. ignorance.. all stem from fear, which spreads through a populace like wild-fire and leads to mass panic.

Maybe I am just too politically minded but I think there is too much suspicion stemming from those intentionally provoking and feeding it (often cleverly with misleading false evidence). Suspicion is different than mere questioning. Suspicion seeks guilt and judgement, not rational answer and civil debate.

And I think that the real issue is who and what is being questioned as well as the validity of any proposed answers. If everyone questioned their sources more and were less obstinate against proposed answers, the world would be a different place. It doesn't seem to me that it is an issue of more questions but rather the direction, quality, and focus of the questions already proposed. No one knows who or what to trust because they don't go to the trouble to question the source of their enticing suspicions, often being merely themselves. They want guilt and doubt to help float their bubble through the hope of lowering the waters. The actual truth might reveal that they really are socially unworthy of respect and acceptance (thinking of the US socialist/democrat party).

An environment of suspicion, is a sign of being in the wrong environment.. for me. To try and exist in an environment where your back is always up or you have to be constantly over-thinking things through, is not conducive to a merry place.. for me.

Who would want to exist in a place of constant suspicions and judgments? that’s a very negative headspace to be in, and not really a life, but a half life.
