Can we post here hypothetical questions regarding our mythological figures, for example if X was there in place of Y what would have he done, or what would have happened if instead of event A, event B happened.

Although questions like above will garner diverse views but, that's the sort of thing that would make this place bubbling with life. There are a hell lot of people with a huge bank of knowledge here so, a lengthy discourse would only enthuse the enthusiasts here.

Such questions are speculative in nature and therefore, may not be useful to the subject matter that is Hinduism. Unless very carefully worded as to elicit comparison/contrast between philosophies/schools of thought etc., such questions may not be encouraged, IMO.


From blog.stackoverflow.com:

Stack Exchange is about questions with objective, factual answers. We've been crystal clear about this for as long as I can remember, even back to the earliest, pre-beta days of Stack Overflow. It's right there in the standard Stack Exchange FAQ:

What kind of questions should I NOT ask here?

  • Avoid asking questions that are subjective, argumentative, or require extended discussion.
  • This is not a discussion board, this is a place for questions that can be answered!
  • Thus, questions that are not answerable -- discussions, debates, opinions -- should be closed as subjective.

However, you can always create a new chat room on Hinduism.SE and discuss off-topic subjects there. But you'll have to invite a few users to get the conversation going.

  • On chat nobody is interested.

  • @Vikas Most of your objective (not speculative) questions are already answered on the main site and also in chat rooms. Aug 7, 2019 at 21:06
  • They haven't been answered yet.

  • They haven't clarified them or they don't have intention to do it.
