I say the answer came first. All things out there that are to be known (and discovered) by man have always been there. The questions came about after mankind first discovered that there are answers out there!

I'd say they came at the exactly same time. Theoretically, the answer is already there and every question already exists waiting to be asked - in my opinion.

In so much thus far, the answer has been raised before the question, while the question has been raised before the answer. Has the answer which has existed before the question valid if there was no question?

............. sorry Im on a chomsky caffeeine rush :biggrin:
