What's hard to understand is why you think there are laws.

This can, of course, be interpreted in two ways. Is Bolder-dash asking the "why" of the belief that our universe has laws? That's what I think people thought he was asking.

But he could instead have been asking the "why" of our universe having laws, and I think that's what he was actually getting at in this updated phrasing:

But the question I asked was WHY DO LAWS EXIST!! What's more is I even wrote it in language I assumed (my bad) even Dr. A could understand, when I wrote, why do you think there are laws? As opposed to no laws see? Get it?
