It is a riddle (Posted on 2005-04-13) Difficulty: 1 of 5
It is a riddle.
It is the strongest force,
to resist your force,
and yet it is not a force.
It never accelerates,
but it is always moving.
It never rests, and
it never gets tired.
It has been defined many ways,
but no one can quite capture it.
What is it?

If nobody comes back to the discussion whether the solution of this riddle of the contributor is correct, the answer must be wrong.

The Webster dictionary defines the word, accelerate, as move faster and increase speed.  How could our earth be moving faster or else we could not stand still?  Our earth is moving at the speed of 360 degree/(24 hours x 60 mins) = 0.25 degree per minute.  Or in other words, 0.25 degree/60 second = 0.00416667 per second.  How could this speed be considered as fast? 

How do you'll relate the spinning of earth to be fast if it is spinning at constant speed if not you will get old faster.

If riddles are not the wild imagination, how could you relate the puzzle that relates 5 creatures to 5 finguers?  How could you relate the time to force?  Is it not some kind of wild imagination.

Thanks.
