Yep. There are questions whose answer we will probably never know. Besides, depending on factors such as relevance and time/resource constraints, sometimes a question may simply not be worth, or even practically possible, to explore.

Yes. Unless one knows (or can figure out) absolutely everything, there are bound to be times when that's the only honest answer.
