Is there anything that a human being can never possibly do?

We humans are so overwhelmed with the millions of actions that we perform everyday. We call ourselves multitaskers and have todo lists and sometimes are concerned about over todo lists being overloaded.

But there should be zillions of things that human beings can never be able to do or are incapable of doing.

We might not have thought much about them. So thinking in this new perspective might create some new connections in your brain.

All the best.

      Feb 6 2013: I don't believe in god (or gods), because all wars and hatred is caused by religions.
      Today i opposed group of homophobes and all those who hated gay people, were relgious people.
      I don't need a book to justify what is good and what is bad.
      Religion is selfish.

        Feb 6 2013: Fair enough. Your beliefs to you, mine to me.

        I do believe in one God/Allah/The Creator/The Merciful. All wars are started by people, who manipulate minds of others using religions, to obtain resources or power. I respect my fellow human beings regardless of their sexuality (which is a personal matter). I do oppose homosexuality in the same way I oppose shamelessness pop culture is pouring on our young minds. And I do consider myself religious. The Book contains ultimate guidance for all humanity.

        Religion asks you to be unselfish.

        Dick Brown, have you ever read Quran? Do you know what Islam is about?
        • Feb 9 2013: I'll be honest Dick, your ignorance lost the debate.

          Religion is too broad of a discussion. For example, Satanism and Catholicism are two religions, but are of opposite ends. Putting them into one category would be insanity!
