APR 16, classic palindrome: 'Do geese see God?'
Authors' Note: As with many classic palindromes, the origin of the iconic query, ‘Do geese see God?’ is, in fact, unknown. The verse, however, suggests that it dates back to at least the fifth century B.C.E. The philosophic query is felt by some to be tarnished, and it remains unanswered into modern times.
