Ask Away Sunday: Week 47

Standard

1. Why are boxing rings square?

Boxing rings were originally round when they were Roman, and like the Coliseum in Rome, seats of the spectators were built around in stone seats so as to watch them fight it out to the death. The ring was later made to a square since boxing has evolved and the game does not end with one opponent dead. The corners were made to restrict them from killing each other.

2. What is a fear of fears called?

Pantophobia

3.If humans evolved from apes, how do monkeys and apes still exist?

I don’t believe that humans evolved from apes.

4. Do Atheists swear on a Bible when they are witnesses in court?

I’ve always just assumed that everyone does.
