Like He Said

I don’t agree with everything Charles Krauthammer says, but I love the way he writes. This gem says in a paragraph what I have believed for years.

“How ridiculous to make evolution the enemy of God. What could be more elegant, more simple, more brilliant, more economical, more creative, indeed more divine than a planet with millions of life forms, distinct and yet interactive, all ultimately derived from accumulated variations in a single double-stranded molecule, pliable and fecund enough to givew us mollusks and mice, Newton and Einstein? Even if it did give us the Kansas State Board of Education too.”

Or if it gave us Pat Robertson. Nothing is perfect.

  1. As I recall (and it has been awhile), C.S. Lewis says something similar in Mere Christianity.I like the paragraph, by the way.
