    2. "It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad."

  4. Give me some finger paint, and I can pump out a few jems to hang on your wall, Kid. I just happen to be a kindergarten graduate.

  5. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

    2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

    3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

    4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

    I cannot help but think of God's creation when seeing those pictures. WOW

    1. Bob, Let There Be Light is always what I think when I look at this stuff, read about big bangs, etc.

    2. Yes, Bob. You took the thought right out of my head. How anyone can look at Creation from either the macroscopic (or microscopic) view and not believe in God I can't imagine. And isn't it humbling to begin to realize how infinitely small our little planet -- and each one of us -- and then our component parts -- and every molecule, atom and sub-atomic particle is compared to the infinite, unknowable whole? And yet every thing is a necessary part of the whole, every part of it is incredibly beautiful when you begin really to look at it.

      I am morally certain that someday Art, Science and Theology will meet and greet each other as loving relatives or close friends and colleagues.
