I was reading an article the other day, and if you are thinking, “My, Denn reads a lot of articles,” you wouldn’t be wrong. It’s part of who I am and what I do.

The article was from Scientific American Magazine, and it was entitled “Why Feathers Are One of Evolution’s Cleverest Inventions.”  And it was a great article; it talked about how amazing birds’ feathers are, and they really are amazing. 

The gist of the article was how feathers had evolved over billions of years by chance. Different types of feathers for different kinds of birds, all evolving in different ways.

But the article couldn’t quite explain why hummingbird feathers evolved differently than penguin feathers, or, for that matter, why there were hummingbirds and penguins. And I can understand an eagle, but the thought of an emu evolving kind of confuses me. Are emus the end of the evolutionary process or the beginning? 

Throughout the article, there wasn’t a hint of intelligent design. That perhaps, just maybe, there is a Creator of all things—a creator with a great imagination, not to mention an incredible sense of humour.
Because to paraphrase an old thought, it’s hard to imagine a watch without a watchmaker.

Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
