Why?

Scribe: God, Anonymous asks the question "Why?"

God: BOY, TALKING TO GOD ALWAYS BRINGS THE PHILOSOPHY MAJORS OUT OF THE WOODWORK. I COULD GIVE THE SNARKY RESPONSE, "WHY NOT?" I COULD ALSO ANSWER YOUR VAGUE QUESTION WITH A SIMPLE "BECAUSE". BUT SINCE I'M A KIND AND BENEVOLENT GOD, I'LL RESIST THE URGE.

INSTEAD, I'LL ASSUME YOUR QUESTION IS GENUINE AND JUST OFFER ENCOURAGEMENT. CONGRATULATIONS! BRAVO! YOU'VE ASKED THE $25,000 QUESTION. HUMANITY HAS GOTTEN INTO SOME PRETTY BIG TROUBLE OVER THE AGES WHEN THE MASSES BLINDLY FOLLOW THEIR LEADERS OR ACCEPT EXPLANATIONS THAT DON'T ADD UP (WMDs, ANYONE?). DON'T TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED. NEVER HESISTATE TO ASK WHY? IF THE ANSWER YOU GET DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT TO YOU, IT PROBABLY ISN'T. KEEP ASKING.

Note from Scribe: I'm not sure about the logic of posting "anonymously" when you're asking a question to God. Trust me, he knows who asked this question.

You're kinda profound, aren't you? I think that's very becoming in a God. I mean, The God.
