Questions No One Knows the Answers To

Lesson created by Pierre GESLiN using

Video from TED-Ed YouTube Channel

Let’s Begin…

In the first of a new TED-Ed series designed to catalyze curiosity, TED Curator Chris Anderson shares his boyhood obsession with quirky questions that seem to have no answers. This is a fantastic video asking "real" questions! Remember to click on the Captions Icon (Small red "CC" icon) if you have issues following/understanding the video. Happy watching! Pierre (www.ENGLiSHCiRCLE.fr)

 Anderson asks, “Why do so many innocent people and animals suffer terrible things?”  Humans have been asking this whopper of a question for almost as long as humans have existed.  Explore some of the explanations that have been offered by religious leaders, philosophers, writers and others.  Identify three or four viewpoints that seem particularly provocative and different from one another.  Contribute these viewpoints to a roundtable discussion of the question.  SoundVision’s The Really Big Questions http://www.trbq.org/  Psychology Today: The Big Questions Blog http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-big-questions  John Templeton Foundation: Big Questions Essay Series http://www.templeton.org/signature-programs/big-questions-essay-series  The New York Times:  Is neuroscience the death of free will?
