A Tale From The Trip

He answered, ‘I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.’ Luke 19:40

While walking through the dinosaur/extinct mammal/really old stuff exhibit at the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum, I chanced across this:
Remnants of life on Earth that are three and a half billion years old.  It boggles the mind.

Evolution-deniers are idiots.  This world of God's is far more wonderful, mysterious, and complex than anything we humans can imagine.  Reducing life and time to suit the puerile needs of the cosmically bereft and terrified mocks human intellect, it mocks God, and it mocks the magnificent creation of which we are a part.  To say that evolution "denies God" is to refuse to theologize out of the wonders around us.  It is, rather, to idolize the dead words on a page instead of worshiping and praising the God of Life, a life for which evidence extends beyond our ability to do more than form words.  Creationists are, in fact, creation-deniers, refusing to learn from the bounty around us as well as use the intellect with which we've been blessed to discover the power of Life, which is rooted in the God who created and who creates and sustains through grace and love.

A simple rock with some rings sings more praises to our God than all the creationist claptrap combined.
