you could not have guessed

Besides being complicated, reality, in my experience, is usually odd.  It is not neat, not obvious, not what you expect. . . .

Reality, in fact, is usually something you could not have guessed. That is one of the reasons I believe Christianity. It is a religion you could not have guessed. If it offered us just the kind of universe we had always expected, it would feel we were making it up. But, in fact, it is not the sort of thing anyone would have made up. It has just that queer twist about it that real things have.
