Primitive man assigned all phenomena to a person. In case of death the savage asked, not what killed him, but who. 
The ancients sought a supernatural explanation for all natural phenomena. But the frank, honest, and fearless search for true causes gave birth to modern science. 
Exploration of the phenomena of life sooner or later destroys man’s belief in chance, luck, and so-called accidents, substituting therefor a universe of law and order wherein all effects are preceded by definite causes.  Father liberate our inner self from the fetters of absolute dependence on antecedent causation.  The material level of law provides for causality continuity, the unending response of effect to antecedent action. 
Natural justice is a man-made theory; it is not a reality. In nature, justice is purely theoretic, wholly a fiction. Nature provides but one kind of justice—inevitable conformity of results to causes. 
Reason, through the study of science, may lead back through nature to a First Cause. 
The vital distinction between first causes and second causes is that first causes produce original effects which are free from inheritance of any factor derived from any antecedent causation. 
The Infinite can be finally revealed only in infinity; the cause can never be fully comprehended by an analysis of effects; the living God is immeasurably greater than the sum total of creation that has come into being as a result of the creative acts of his unfettered free will.  Universe causes cannot be lower than universe effects.  Finite origins are helpful, but only divine causes reveal final effects.
