Questions to which there are no answers

In the weighty matters of the world there are always imponderables, questions that do not have answers. I have my own list of those questions that never seem to get adequate answers. Here are a few of them:

Why do evolutionary scientists feel threatened by the teaching of creationism?

Why do North American anthropologists immediately reject any theory of human contact with the American continents other than across the Bering Strait?

Why are paleontologist always looking for a missing link?

Why do some people get more upset about the 4236 U.S. casualties in Iraq rather than the
40,000 people each year who are killed in car accidents, over 20,000 who are killed by the flu, and over who 15,000 are murdered each year?

Why do some people believe that there are large unknown mammals in the United States outside of Alaska?

Why do some people still believe in the hollow earth?

Why do car manufacturers keep making cars that let over 40,000 people a year die in accidents?

Why do people keep opening E-mails advertising male enhancement pills?

Why do people believe that the price of gasoline is demand driven?

Why do people believe that annuities are either a form of insurance or an investment?

Why do some people feel compelled to write blogs?

I am sure there are many more questions out there but only these come to mind today.
