Launching ExistentialQuestions.com: Participate and Win $300!

By Daniel Scocco

A couple of weeks ago my dad called me saying he wanted to let me know about his latest “Where do we come from?” theory. He is a physicist, and we often talk about those metaphysical and existential issues.

His theory was very unorthodox, yet feasible (more on that later)

This little talk we had, however, gave me the idea to create a website. I spent sometime looking for domain names, and decided to go with ExistentialQuestions.com. The site is already live, and I am doing a pre-launch today, so go check it out.

existential questions

I want to make this website an open community where people can join and share their own theories and ideas about those existential questions, including:

  • Does God exist?
  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Where do we come from?
  • What is happiness?
  • Are we alone in the Universe?

I am sure that many people like to think about those issues as well, so I am trying to give them place where they can hang together, share theories, comment and rate the ideas of others.

The format of the website will be like an open blog. I thought about creating a Forum, but I think that trying to answer to those questions is not an easy task, therefore it is better to give the stage completely to one person at a time (the post) and let others leave comments below.

To kick start things and get some articles there I am also holding a small competition. Basically we will track the rating on each article from now until October 31, and on that date the article with the highest rating will win $300 cash!

Do you think you know the answer to those existential questions? Do you have an interesting or curious theory that you want to share? Head to ExistentialQuestions.com and give it a shot!

Ah, about my dad’s theory. He said he is gathering some facts to make it more bullet proof, and he will post it there soon. He is aiming for the $300 also!

    Love it, I have spend hours and days reading and discussing about this topics.I don’t have my own theory ( duh!) but I have some bookmarked which I believe the most … Unfortunately I’m already swamped with my own sites, don’t thing I could find time to write about it ATM.

    Hi, Daniel,

    I love the topic and write about it frequently in some of my blogs. Maybe I should enter the competition! Regardless, I’ll be a reader of the new blog, that’s for sure. Wishing you a lot of success and a great week.

    Patricia.

    @jp_zero, my blog title is aimed at the general public and not at philosophers 🙂 .

    But I am curious to know how you would have titled it instead.

  • jp_zer0

    From a philosopher’s point of view, your blog’s title is a horrible choice.

    What you’re trying to do with your blog has very little to do with actual existentialism afaik. I was expecting something very different from what I got.

    I was expecting something like this: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/existentialism/

  • Matt

    What an awesome idea for a website, well done to you and your Dad.

  • Franklin Bishop

    This is another great idea for a blog. I think this will be very successful and plus you already have your readers from this blog to atleast get you started with traffic. I know I would be interested in a blog like this. Good luck.

    Great idea Daniel! Big, big props to you and your dad for coming up with this site. I love having conversations like these, though it’s easy to get very very riled up talking about stuff none of us know about for sure.

    I’m sure you’ve already considered it but still good luck keeping the discussions civil and productive, I’m really looking forward to seeing this site grow. I really think there’s a lot of good we can all do through sites like existentialquestions, the more we find out about each other and our deep thoughts the more we’re going to find out a lot of us have similarities and the same questions and concerns about life, the universe and everything. One small step for blogs, one giant leap for mankind?

    Excellent idea, and if there are no other competitors currently out there you have nailed it. I will be sure to take a look.
