[Error: unknown template qotd]You can't explain to me why the forces exist in exactly the way that they do, and you never will be able to do so. You can explain to me the how of their functioning, but you can not explain to me the why. Gravity warps space time, and so do high velocities. You can't tell me why. You can only tell me that they do such things, and the mathematical equations used to derive their exact natures.

The question of why is left to the spiritualists, theologians, and philosophers. It is the only thing we have left to deal with, now that science has taken over everything else. Atheists, you can't answer the why either. So shut up :)

"..and you never will be able to do so." Quite an extraordinary claim; can you back that claim up with evidence?

It's not a very extraordinary claim at all, really.

You can't quantify the why, so it is not in the realm of science whatsoever.

Besides, this is merely my subjective interpretation of that facts as I see them, and in no way is it an attempt to subvert another individual's subjective reality.

Science observes, records, and draws conclusions. You can not observe the unseen, you can only observe the effects thereof. In the case of gravity, which is one of the best examples, you can not observe or quantify the cause - you can only observe the effect, and draw conclusions on the nature of gravity from that observation. But the nature of gravity itself, and the reasoning behind its existence is not in the realm of science...at least, not as far as this individual is concerned.
