Not afraid of evolution
by Signe Markuson


February 08, 2005

I remember when they tried to teach us that our ancestors were apes in school along the time when they started to say it was ok to murder your own offspring in the courts. Evolution meaning that we originated out of some primordial ooze and are going no where in particular. I remember asking my mom if it were true and she explained to my relief the truth of God that my childish mind gladly accepted. Knowledge puffs up... love builds up.

Once I had planned a garden in our yard and had the dirt all sifted nicely. As I was waiting to decide what to plant in that spot our cat started to use the spot for a litter box. I had to come up with something to keep the cat out. As we were at the beach I found a small piece of netting and took it home to put it over the spot where I wanted to plant. A couple of days later as I was still deciding what to plant I saw a little bird caught in the net and struggling. I ran out to try to release the bird but its feet were caught and its neck and wings. I was holding this tiny little bird with his heart beating so fast and I knew I needed help so I said to God, "God, I can't do it, I will kill it. I'll break its wings you do it." The next thing I knew I saw this orange ball of fire-like light roll off my shoulder and a big flash... the next moment that bird was flying twelve feet in the air.

I'm not afraid of evolution. I am afraid for those who believe in it rather than God. Because I know that Hell is real... and that is another story some other day.

Peace to you.
