"What's the biggest plot hole in history?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor itsaspecialworld, who reminded us that some things about our world just don't seem to make any sense.

From the creation of the universe to eclipses, there's plenty of reason to wonder how the hell certain things actually happened.


"The creation..."

The creation of the universe. I mean seriously, that just came completely out of nowhere.

"Humans surviving..."

Humans surviving for any length of time given the bizarre duration for which our children are completely defenseless. Obvious BS.

"It's too...

Eclipses.

It's too contrived that the Moon is exactly the right size and distance away to completely cover the Sun from where we look at it on Earth.

"Not so much..."

Not so much a plot hole but a plot point left open for future episodes. All life is carbon based, you can just as readily call it plain old life but we don't. Carbon based implies there's life other than carbon based life that we'll eventually be introduced to.

"A lot of books..."

The Cognitive Revolution.

How? When? What? Why?

A lot of books did try to answer the questions, but I'm not entirely sure why humans of all creatures got such great thinking boxes.

"The crazy part..."

Dark matter.

The crazy part is their likely to fill in the rest of the story later. They usually do.

"Atilla plundering..."

Atilla not plundering Rome because it was needed in a later season. They handled it off-screen by having him talk to some bishop in a tent but it's pretty bad writing if you ask me.

"The writers..."

The bronze age collapse. The writers just pulled these mysterious sea people out of their asses, they destroy everything and then we never hear from them again. Sloppy writing that is.

"Like how??"

Humans become the dominant intelligent species. Like how?? It takes months for a newborn to walk and do sht and somehow we run the whole earth?

"Everyone is walking..."

Everyone is walking around with devices that can access the whole of human knowledge and so many people are still dumb.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
