The Miracle of Life
The more we learn about science, and life, and by “we” I mean really smart people, the more we begin to take things for granted.
There was a time when people worshiped phenomenon’s that ruled their life. Rivers were worshiped, trees were holy, cows sacred and mountains magical. People prayed to these necessary elements of their life, they represented that which they could not understand they represented life, and therefore they represented God.
As smart people begin to learn and explain all that surrounds us, these things lose their charm and their majesty. When we understand them, even if it is only really smart people that understand them, they lose their grip on us, they just become facts and things.
I think in large part, people are losing their belief in God, their need to fear and respect an unknown power as they feel they now understand that power.
A mountain is created by Earth's internal pressure and volcanoes and …Hell, I don’t really know, but I know really smart people can explain them.
The Sun provides heat and light and has done so for a billion years. Really smart people can explain how it will continue to provide for another billion years. Well if really smart people can explain this phenomenon, then it must be no big deal.
We pray and show awe to that which we do not understand. When we peal back the how’s and chemistry of life, it loses some of its intrigue, God is diminished in our eyes.
Perhaps a virus that smart people do not yet understand and do not yet know how to treat is an eye opener to the majesty of God.
We are sooo smart. We (and once again by “we” I mean really smart people) can create life in a test tube, we can change a persons gender, we can create light and store energy. We don’t need God to explain things, everything has an explanation, some just have not yet been discovered or proved.
Yes, many will ask for God to deliver us from this virus, and when the virus is defeated, it is really smart people who will be given credit. They will be thanked and God will be forgotten just a bit more.
I, not being one of the really smart people will ask,
“What makes really smart people really smart? What made the building blocks of science that really smart people are beginning to understand?
Where did the first molecule come from?”
Regardless of how smart really smart people are in explaining the life around us, there will always be just one conclusion, not the tree, the mountain, the river or the cow, not the sun or a virus.
The final answer to the secret to life will always end up with God.
Many of us are too smart to see that.
To me there is only one explanation for a sun that has burned for a billion years and is likely to burn for another billion years. Always, burning at approximately the same intensity, providing the same amount of light and heat.
Meanwhile, wash your hands and wear a mask.
