You don't get it, do you?

Okay, let's say the kid asked why the sky was blue, and you explained it in correct scientific terms, but he kept saying "why?" to every explanation. Eventually, you find yourself having to explain why electrons and photons act the way the do, why there is an electromagnetic force, etc. And eventually, you just have to say something like "that's just the way it is" or "I don't know why."

At the heart of existence is a mystery.

If "God" wasn't useful, people wouldn't use it.
