Yes,like Swami Vivekananda questioned Sri Ramkrishna about his beliefs.

I questioned everything, and disbelieved almost everything when I was a teenager. I think I based my disbelief primarily on my lack of respect for those whom I observed living by those rules. Over the years, I learned that I was actually VERY silly and stupid in those days, and I caused myself a world of grief by ignoring the things my parents told me or wanted me to do. Perhaps there WAS nothing but that cold shower of misfortune that could have taught me as thoroughly...because I was a very proud and stubborn child.

Yes, I am stubborn as hell...stuck out a bad marriage for at least 10 years...too stubborn to quit at first...but stubborn isn't always smart. :)

I think I was stubborn like you when young.But life teaches you hard lessons.

We should question what we dont understand but understand that the answer may lead to a question

Which have no answers.Are there questions like that?

Does a falling tree make a noise if nobody is there to hear it?..... what noise?

Please don't say that to the children that I teach, I will be there all day and all night.

Ha,Ha,I won't.

I think it is ok to question what we have been taught, so long as it is done with due courtesy. I have come to find that not all teachers are as informed as you might have thought.

You are right.Not all teachers prepare to keep themselves informed.
