Only a charlatan would assert that it is not necessary to include mechanism in
the study of physics. To rely on mathematics and observation alone is the
equivalent to believing that our Universe works on MAGIC. and that physics is
exempt from the

It would be nice if there was a cause, or
explanation, or mechanism, for everything that
happened, rather than there being some things for
which we can never have an explanation, and for
which we have to say "It just happens." But that
position would be logically inconsistent, because
it requires an infinite series of causes.
Of course, if by "mechanism," you mean not cause,
but push/pull force, you have failed to see that
the mechanisms of those push/pull forces involve
things like electromagnetism and quantum mechanics.
Why would you want to describe them in terms of
the push/pull forces they cause?
If by "mechanism" you mean a complete description
of everything that happens in a certain space
during a certain time, what is the problem with
modern science? It does attempt to do this.
It appears you are being deliberately vague about
what you mean by "mechanism," so that you can just
throw the word at people, pretending it's an
argument, and they can't argue back because they're
not sure what you're saying.
