Describing is not Explaining

There is a difference in describing and explaining.
Science has become better and better at describing things (phenomenon) and predicting behaviors. But discrepancies continue to appear, and we cannot explain how they came to be.
We can describe in detail, but not wrap it into a powerful narrative of causal explanation, which leads to a more and more fragmented information, with more and more speculative theories stringing them together, producing a less and less coherent worldview.
