In the face of the Badlands, much of the Creation/Evolution debate seems silly to me. There is too much to comprehend. It is overwhelming. O Lord, my God. When I in AWESOME WONDER consider all the worlds thy hands have made. I see the stars. I hear the rolling thunder. Thy power throughout the universe displayed. Then SINGS my soul. My Savior God to Thee. HOW GREAT THOU ART Did God move the earth over eons to His plans? I do not know, and it is in the not knowing that faith has room to grow. While striving after knowledge is our lot, and more knowledge can lead to greater appreciation of God's handiwork. Knowing the limits of human understanding and maintaining humbleness before infinity is necessary to maintain a fertile ground for faith. If faith is the belief and trust in things not seen, one has to believe that there are things that have not been seen. A true belief in such things cannot limit what those things are, for if we have truly not seen them we cannot truly describe them. WE can guess but we can never elevate that guess beyond the instability of prediction. God's word said that He created the world. So He DID. But the Word does not tell us how He did it. When I see the endless canyons valleys bluffs buttes mesas grasses rocks draws flowers buffalo birds washes clouds rivers lakes how can I dare say that God did not use whatever method He saw fit. God is bigger, stronger than this debate.
