    Wonder is the feeling of the philosopher, and philosophy begins in wonder. - Plato

    I wonder what it was like between God,and Adam and Eve BEFORE they committed sin. The way was open by God through Jesus Christ for that reconciliation and unity with the Almighty God. Some have already and some will experience that uncommon life that God may show forth His power in the spirits of humankind in comparison   to the image and schools of world education.

      The Bible says that God visited Adam and Eve daily. Apparently, according to the Bible, They had daily conversations about the breezy part of the day. This to me would be as a mother and father and child.

    I wonder why human beings cannot get along and seem to always be in trying to dominate the weaker and force their precepts upon the majority. I wonder why after centuries that people have followed the histories and cultures of the world, and yet still cannot fathom what it means to be without greed and the desire to rule, and possess all the gold in existence. When wealth in "Things" is not enough, why do people wish and strive to control and relish in the power that they may possess, rather than in just money. Why is fame seemingly to be more important than a good character and truth. Then lastly, and not by any means, all of my wondering, what is it like to dwell on another planet that may be alright for human life? My reason for this question...could leaving this civilization behind and all of its flaws, be better if we lived in another world with less evil and more caring, by its creatures?

      These people are greedy. Greed comes in many forms. Greed for money, greed for power, greed for fame. If there were another world with less evil and more caring, I would gladly go with my family.

      I wonder about THE SAME EXACT topics, except for the last one. In that respect I wonder what beautiful planet MAN will discover in order to ruin? And finally, why is man so self destructive?

      Those all seem like good things to wonder about.  I wonder how to change that "basic human nature" in myself and even more so... in others.

    I wonder...  What do people generally worry about, when their life is financially secure and their health is stable?

    I wonder that when you die are you conscious of it.  Are you sitting in a beautiful place with other beautiful people looking down on earth or do you just cease all together.

    I often wonder about my own existence. To me, it is a miracle that I was conceived and born. Others to me were born by chance. I wonder if all other people feel the same about themselves. What if our parents had skipped sex that particular day or even hour. Would we still have been born?
