No! Every question has a purpose. Doesn't matter if the question is "Where's Times Square?" or "What's 2X+3Y=6C?". Questions were made to be answered and whoever thinks differently, well I assume they must be an idiot.

Rhetorical questions are, by definition, NOT made to be answered, so your assumption is presumption and false presumption at that!

^Every question has a purpose. The purpose of Rhetorical questions are to prove a point. So your comment is false.

I didn't say it didn't have a purpose. I said it wasn't 'made to be answered' which you implied was the purpose in every case. Your logic eats itself and my comment triumphs.

I said questions were made to be answered, not ALL questions are made to be answered.
