Re: Ross Patterson by James Mitchell

I like your disagreement with Caputo. Plenty of people say "why" in situations that are not humanly possible to understand. That is why we have religion and why science asks the question till they feel they have the answer. I think the reason we deconstruct the "why" is becuase we need change over the years. We need reminders of the answers people give because we forget that all humans have the capability of being flawd. I'm not saying that religion is flawd but we need to ask why and deconstruct becuase we get no where without it. We live in too much fear if we dont understand why a tornado occurs or why our crops never make it through a dry season. We come up with answers like the gods are angry that is the fear.I'm also not saying that asking why in ever single situation is necessarely a good thing, but maybe asking why you would ask why is another way of putting it and another way of deconstruction that could help. If this makes absolutely no since I apologize. Liked your comment.
