    Can you work this out logically? What would be your explanation on why random is random, and not something else?

    Note: this thread has been created to help with deep thought, so please give as thoughtful of a reply, that you can give. :)

    I don't know what to say! I'm lost and can't give out the right answer. Random means random, what else!

    Then think of this, Random number generation

    When I was into programming there was a time that I was thinking about randomness. Why is there such a thing as random? Isn't it difficult for God to give us that randomness in this world? If there is no random in this world then all our faces and appearance may be the same just like things that came out from a factory. But our genes were given the random factor that we come out differently from each other.

    Random is random because it does not abide by any universal law or constraint, therefore it has no limits to express its implicit variation.
