Because God said so?

Researchers can't explain how what they're calling the "impossible" star came to be. The star was discovered in a star-forming cloud in the Milky Way Galaxy called RCW 120. And here's the coolest part: Even as a baby star, it is already eight to ten times larger than our sun, and it's still feeding on the gas and dust clouds around it. The star is set to be one of the biggest and brightest stars in our galaxy within the next few hundred thousand years — meaning, this star won't ever be a part of our lives. (Source)

Is it just me or does this seem to happen a lot? Researchers or scientists seem to continually find things that simply defy explanation. If the simplest explanation is often the correct one, then most often I think "God did it" is probably the best answer for things we can't explain.
