  1. Why does everyone like to say: “Everything that is done, everything is for the best”?

    That's a stupid phrase. It's as far-fetched as the widely quoted ” whatever doesn't kill us makes us stronger.” My argument: for example, a person's leg was cut off. Is this for the best? It didn't kill him and made him stronger?�

    Is there a scientific explanation for this, or at least where did this expression come from?

    I think this is a popular version of the biblical phrase to those who love God and are called according to His will, all things work together for good (Romans 8:28). In a biblical context, this phrase makes sense.

    The meaning of the phrase is that God knows better than we do what we need, when we need it, and how we need it. That even what seems unpleasant, unnecessary, and burdensome to us can be used by God for the benefit of the Christian.
