It is all an oxymoron. I believe, so wholeheartedly, in reading, learning, expanding our minds with a continuous process. Reaching our full potential? Not possible! We can always learn more! Read my post from yesterday, I value reading and thought.
But I wasn’t born yesterday. Just when I think I have something figured out, I am flipped upside down. It is humorous to think what I used to think I knew. I am who I never thought I’d be. One assurance of this world is to never say never.
So, in this world of thought, what do we know? We know we do NOT know. The scientists of the past believed the world to be flat. Men who believe they are above sin, are the first to fall. THE IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENS!
We live in such a tiny speck of the universe in such a tiny speck of time. Time travel is impossible? Men smarter than me point us to a worm hole and say, “maybe not impossible.” In fact, it happens every day in space! Just because I do not understand it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.
But remember the great oxymoron? The only thing I can know is that I do not know. So, how can I know?
This is a world of order! Look at the heavens, so large my mind can not fathom. It all makes sense! It travels in patterns, holds itself in check, composed and travels in a manner to support water, to form weather, to allow me to live.
Science. It is not a dirty word. It does not contradict religion. Science is the study of this world. This is my Father’s world! Science is the study of God’s Creation. I learn, study, and explore with the knowledge that I can not know it all! Put my hope in science? Put my hope in my own knowledge? Nah! Quite pathetic! It changes so very quickly and I soon find my mind irrelevant.
Evolution? I am not against a theory. But claiming evolution as science is ignoring science in and of itself. Entropy. The second law of thermodynamics tells us that this world continues toward disorder. Long ago, the theory of evolution should have been discarded.
Recently, I was told God is for the weak, those that can not “do it on their own.” Right! God is for those that admit they do not have the answers. So is science! Science is for explorers! Those seeking answers to more questions than can ever be answered.
God is for people that have messed up, for those that need forgiveness, for those that want to be something bigger than themselves.
But weak? Oh no! Is education for the weak? Is seeking answers, knowledge, and wisdom for the weak? No! The strongest are those that admit they do not know it all, the strongest are those that continue to learn, the strongest are those that are a part of something bigger than themselves. The strongest are those that did not make the world, do not know it all, do not have the answers, but know the one is, was, and will forever be.
