___"You think there's a reason I can tell you for everything that happens. Who am I to you, God? As far as I remember, even God doesn't tell the reasons for everything that happens. People do say he knows them, but... haven't you noticed? The more involved Christians love to comment that they're beyond us and we need to simply trust that he understands. So... even if I actually knew the reasons, let's get back to this: do you think I could tell them to you?
___You're always so busy trying to understand the way things are, then looking at what was there as they came to be, as you say, that way. You draw a correlation, you decide it's fact, you trace the patterns with history. I'd say it's practical, but here you are... defending it with insecurity and doubt trembling in your tone of voice. You point at the reasons things happen as being separate from what you've discovered... I do, sincerely (and I mean most sincerely) agree with this disambiguation of 'terms', as you could label them, this placed meaning on approaching why things happened the way they did being separate from knowing the correlation that suggests at a schematic-like cause and effect for them. Perhaps, well... in my eyes honestly, this differentiation is proving a very valid point.
___If there is a reason I can tell you, and let me tell you, they lynched that man for a very good reason, you won't like it enough to listen to it. You'll retaliate, just like you're retaliating emotionally against me telling you how you'll work in that situation; don't worry, I can see it in your face tensing up and your eyes turning out like they're about to shed tears or spew fire. You'll retaliate, like you retaliate when you tell me that causal relationship of circumstances and actions; I'd like to think that deep down inside you're speaking with underlying hostility because you're afraid that answer just isn't good enough. Yet if it comes down to it, I still can't actually tell you the reason, regardless of my understanding that you'd never hear it out.
___Let's say I told you anyways, disregarding the flaw to this concept, which I will mention in time. When you hear it, that's the problem. It will be so many things going on you won't see it as a reason anymore. To persuade you in honesty, you won't see anything to do with reason in it anymore. But let's look at how a cat runs, and consider that the way cells are ordered out by genetically-rooted commandments, if you will, is so necessary in the cat running. Take a play at remembering every molecule in its body is partaking in its motion, and all of those particles in there have a display of properties so well-intertwined in a way that builds up together to an astoundingly real result. It's all, well, would you say that looking at all of that, which tells the reason the cat can run, is something our average companion on this planet would like to hear when they beg to know... "Why can this cat run?"
___So perhaps there's a reason, I judge the word reason in a way where having it so is left the common and applied way to see in this universe. But if you're going to expect me to recognize an atom's bend to pull those encircling electrons to work as it plays into a visibly-scaled operation for why the cat can run, you're poorly mistaken about what can faithfully be said. The theory and the ploy to scientific inquiry may make it describable, if we can get far enough to denoting all the why's that breed out our questioned product, but if I were watching the parts that made it so actually interact and could interpret their behaviors from an engineering-grade level of comprehension, spelling it out for you is playing with letting go of the fact that I just saw it. Those words will never pay you the view I have. So, I'm sorry. If you want to know the reason behind the things that are happening, you'll have to do something other than ask."
