But is there really a single never-ending question?

"Really?"
"Is Fastmail down?"
Does that answer your question?

Why won't the questions never end?

Are you sure that there are questions which are not of a finite length? I would think that all valid questions could be read in a finite time interval, which implies that they are finite in length. Even though the questions are long and we many not have time to read them to their end, we know the short answer: 42

Though I said that the questions are infinite, I was not talking about the length of the questions, I was talking of the number of them....

But it can be argued that there are not an infinite number of sentences. So if a question is posed as a sentence, the number of questions would be a subset of the number of sentences. This implies that the number of questions is finite. Do you agree?

You are nitpicking now, methinks, n5bb

Are you implying that lousy arguments are used in this thread, requiring ridding us of the descendants of those poor ideas by carefully removing their nits?

Why is it that when you transport something by car, it is called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it is called cargo?
