Why are things the way they are?

F0r my take home exam
Question asked by: mtalaisa

Asked on: 16 Mar 2010

There are various answers here.

It could be that they are the way they are because that is the way they have to be - i.e. due to determination.

Ultimately you have to say there is no answer - it is all the result of random fluctuations and chance, or you say that there is a strict law of cause and effect and therefore the answer is simply that things are the way they are because they were the way they were... that's not a tautology but a profound truth, if it does indeed happen to be true!
