The question of why is always interesting.
It is so intuitive that children begin asking it from an early age.
Writer Don Miller has discussed this at length in various books.
Most of this type are philosophical questions that everyone asks at some point.
- Why do I exist?
- Does it even matter that I exist?
- Is there anything special about being human?
- Why does pain exist?
- Do relationships matter?
- Is death the end?
“I mean, that is the thing about asking why, isn’t it? You start asking those questions and the whole thing falls apart. It is as though nothing means anything anymore. I mean, it is great if you can buy into it, if you can just say, okay, God has done all of this to dazzle us, and the mountains and the desert and all the bugs and animals are just there for us to enjoy, and that is great. I am thankful for that. But you almost have to look at it poetically, because when you break it down without God’s explanation or God’s reason for us being here, it gets pretty confusing and odd.”
