100 Questions that no one knows the answer to (seriously nobody can answer)

Updated on:

By: Naveen B

What happens if we discover the elixir of life? What is the purpose of the soul? These are some mind boggling questions that no one knows the answer to including some unanswerable questions like what is the ultimate fate of the existence and why did consciousness emerge?

We’ve all been there. Someone has asked us a question that we’re absolutely positive doesn’t have an answer, and we’re not sure how to respond in an appropriate manner.

Some mysteries are so strange that it’s hard to believe anyone could even think them up.

There are many life’s mysteries and unanswered questions that have baffled scientists and scholars alike. Some of these mysteries date back centuries, while others were only discovered within the last decade or so.

Either way, it’s safe to say that there are plenty of unanswered questions still left in this world, and it can be interesting to reflect on them from time to time, particularly when there’s nothing else to do but sit around and wait for something interesting to happen.

Here are 100 such questions—some are deep, philosophical and scientific, and some are funny, weird, stupid, and dumb—that no one knows the answers to yet.

100 Question that no one knows the answer to


Here is a list of most thought provoking and mind blowing questions no one knows the answer to:

1. If I am just going to die anyways, why does anything matter at all?

The need to give meaning to life while struggling with the fear of death is a deep-rooted phenomenon that has been observed throughout history, from religious concepts to existentialist philosophy.

It’s no wonder that most religions posit the notion of an afterlife; for some believers, this makes them feel more confident in living their lives fully here on earth because they know there’s something waiting for them afterwards.

That said, what if there is no such thing as life after death? Then this question remains unanswered forever and make it possible to believe that there is no meaning for life itself. What do you think?

2. How did everything begin? And where will it end up?

As per a scientific theory we know that everything began with a big bang.

However, we may not know where it ends up – if science progresses enough and we finally reach absolute truth.

But today this remains one of humanity’s great mysteries, impossible to be solved because of our limitations (although scientists are trying).

3. Where are the yeti?

Some say that the yeti is a creature that inhabits the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet.

This creature is known to be covered in long brown or reddish hair, to walk on two feet, and to stand over 10 feet tall.

Some eyewitnesses report that this creature leaves behind large footprints in snow, mud, or dirt.

Over the years many expeditions have been made in order to find evidence of this elusive animal but none has yet succeeded. And still, no one knows the answer to this question.

4. What is the color of dark matter?

Dark matter accounts for 27% of the total mass-energy content in our universe, however we don’t know what it actually consists of.

Scientists assume that it’s not composed of baryonic particles, but the vast majority of it is still unknown.

5. Did any other writer help and publish Shakespeare’s works?

We know for sure that William Shakespeare was a famous playwright and poet in 16th century England.

Many experts have speculated who he might have collaborated with on his work or if he didn’t, in fact, write any of his plays himself. One thing is for sure: we’ll never know the answer to this question.

6. Are there things in reality we’ll never know?

Some say we can never really know anything at all, while others say some things will always remain a mystery. What’s your opinion on whether or not we can ever really understand everything?

7. What is the sound of one hand clapping?

This is a Buddhist riddle. A lot of people have come up with answers to this question, but nobody knows the correct one.

Some say it’s not possible to clap with one hand and others say that the sound of one hand clapping is silence.

8. Why do we die?

Death has become a very important topic since antiquity, and no matter what religion or culture we come from, it’s a reality that affects us all.

Our eventual death – and what comes after – remains shrouded in mystery.

9. What is inside the human consciousness?

It’s a question that has baffled thinkers for centuries.

On one hand, it’s believed that we can’t know the contents of the human consciousness.

Because we cannot experience what it is like to be someone else and therefore we don’t have access to their thoughts and feelings and where do they actually come from?

On the other hand, there are those who argue that it’s possible to gain insight into a person’s internal world through reading about their life or by empathizing with their experiences.

But even if this were true, would understanding what is inside another person’s mind tell us what is in our own?

10. How come imagination makes the impossible possible?

This is a question that most people have asked themselves at least once in their life.

Is it possible to explain how imagination makes the impossible possible? What are the limits of this power? Is it possible to draw a conclusion without explaining why imagination makes the impossible possible?

For example, we imagine different outcomes and then choose one of them, or maybe the impossibility becomes possible when it’s imagined. 

If you can answer this question, share your imagination in the comments to let others know how your mind actually works.
