Penelope, for some reason you're not understanding me. I will assume it is because I'm not making sense. I will try to be more clear here.
This is a false statement. I do ask why
, but only when asking why
makes sense. Likewise, I do not ask where
questions when asking where
questions is meaningless. After this post of mine I should not hear you say that you consider me a how
person and not a why
person. I have now explained myself. I'm both a why
and a how
person, but sometimes there simply isn't a why
answer to a question. Please tell me this makes sense, because I don't know how else to explain myself.
You don't have to stop asking why
, but you cannot ask why
in regards to everything you see around you. There must be an intelligence for their to be a why
. Newcomers to this thread will need to read the full context of this discussion. I'm aware that you can ask "why is the sky blue?" and have that question make sense. That isn't the type of why
question we're discussing.
Please tell me you understand me now. Please tell me you now realize I have NEVER asked you to stop asking why. I am simply suggesting that you don't ask meaningless why questions.
I ask why questions all day. An example would be:
Why are you not understanding me right now?
To help us get back on track the above is a quote of one of your posts.
My point is that you have to FIRST determine if humans got here through natural means or through supernatural means. This first step is essential and it answers the "how" question.
It is ONLY AFTER you have concluded that we got here due to supernatural means (God) that it makes sense to ask "Why did the supernatural entity create us?" But if there is a natural explanation for our origins it would make no sense to ask "Why did nature decide to create us," seeing as nature doesn't make decisions. Gravity doesn't consciously decide to pull stuff towards the center of a mass. Only intelligent and conscious entities can have reasons "why" they make decisions or take actions.
