The most important Question is:
“Why am I asking this Question?”

Why do I want an answer?
Will having an answer make it easier for me to pass on my DNA?
Will having an answer help me to avoid Death?

Yes, especially if your question is:  Am I supposed to cross the street on the red light, or the green light?

Absolutely.
How can you find an answer if you don’t know why you’re asking the question in the first place?

This thread is fraying, but I enjoyed reading it and want it to continue, with a more profound definition of “most important.” 

Define “most important” as: the question which, if answered truthfully and completely, would do the most good for the greatest number of people.

Now what is the most important question?

“What is the most important question of all time?”

One could argue that it would be the one that would have as an answer “the most important answer of all time”.

But then what could be the question to have this answer other than the most important question of all time.

Thus the most important question of all time is “What is the most important question of all time?”

If you were about to be attacked by a grizzly, or you looked out of your tent and saw that your grandchildren were about to be attacked by a grizzly, the most important question would be, “What can I do to prevent a disaster here?”

If the above link just takes you to You Tube, type in - ‘The Most Terrifying Video You’ll Ever See’ in the You Tube search box (by wonderingmind42)  (this is just a young guy explaining something on a piece of paper, not something horrible to watch)

The count is +13 out of a six-deck shoe and the dealer has a 6 facing up. You’ve been dealt a soft 16 (Ace + 5). Straight hit or double-down?

top 5 most important questions, 1. Is it possible for the human brain to aquire all the knowledge in the univers?
2. How in the world do you become a god if the idea of them is belived by so many people?
3. Why do gods seem to brake the rules in which they clame to have made?
4. Why would gods need eyes if their is no light?
5.Why would they need ears in a void?
6. Why would they or he need legs if theirs no surface in void\?
7. why would god need atomic particles in void?
8.In void theres no time,no space, no atoms, why magic,why rules if magic brakes them?
Things happen for a reason doesnt necacrily mean theirs a god, the sun is their so that life can be possible here.
God and science dont go together! God= rule braker and non exsistent so he doesnt brake any rules as long as he doesnt exist. heres my conclusion God= man made, so if a idea like that can exsist then reality is purely twisted, we can all belive were gods and possibly the same outcome.

Clearly the most important question of all time, due to shear volume and utility, is; What the fuck?
