Paul’s One Big Question for October 6, 2018 (Revised)

Please Note:  This is the revised version of my “One Big Question for October 6, 2018”.  Earlier today, I put up another version, but — impossible as this might sound to my beloved readers — I screwed up.

Specifically, I wrote “humility” when I should have written “pride”, and thus really, really messed up the question.  GULP

After taking a closer look at it, I have decided the only solution is to take down the original post, and post this revised version of it.  Unfortunately, that means also taking down three answers.  So especial apologies to Isabella, Teresums, and “All About Life”.  Sorry for that.

With that said, here is the revised question (Which is now very different from the former question):


What is the value of self-esteem?


This question was inspired by a comment by Marysa, who blogs here, made on yesterday’s question.  If you have question suggestions, please feel free to mention them in the comments or email them to me.


Paul’s One Big Question for October 5, 2018

Please Note: I’m thinking of each day asking one “big” question about any subject under the sun.  The questions will be designed as best as I can to be thought-provoking without, however, requiring an advanced degree to answer.  They will differ from my “Daily Three” mostly in that they will not be personal.  With that in mind, here’s the first “big question”:


If aliens were to visit the earth for the first time in their history, what, if anything, about humans would most stand out to them as notably wonderful or marvelous?
