THE OUGHT TO BE

Science is the "How" ... Beliefs and Religion are the "Why" - The 'How' is pretty binary; it's either true or false and can be proven without contest.

The 'Why', however, is where everything gets beautifully and chaotically complicated. It's not just the flame that ignited every war and feud us humans have ever waged against each other ..

it's also the seed that ended them. Two people can witness the the exact same thing at the exact same time and yet their "Why" can produce polar opposites.

It is pound for pound the single most potent word in any language ever spoken.

The single word that quite literally separates us from the beasts, not the ability to walk upright, not an opposable thumb No,

The advantage that keeps us at the top of the food chain is simply the ability to ask, "Why?" ... "Why let strangers onto our land? Why shouldn't we?" ..

"Why not teach a machine to be intelligent" .. "Why do I get lightheaded when she smiles the why she does?" ..

it's what keeps us standing for 45 mins under the shower thinking about the universe as water falls ... If there's a divine then he's the "Almighty Why"
