In the Beginning

January 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I am uncertain as to when I first heard about evolution, but I think it must have been during a college biology class. I don't recall that it was an especially surprising concept for me; nor that it conflicted with my faith. The biblical creation story is a poetic affirmation about the beginning of this cosmos and of human life. It is not a scientific explanation nor a historical timeline of the creation of life, just as scientific methods rarely address faith questions. Does the Genesis account begin with some assumptions? Sure, as I think all attempts to explain the beginning are based on some kind of assumptions. Scientists say that evolution or the Big Bang or some combination was the process how we all came to be. Maybe. Who knows for certain?

I choose to believe (I have no proof) that before anything existed, God did and still does. I am amazed at the macro world and the infinite universe. I wonder about how and why. But I have a sense of peace believing there is a purpose. And that's enough for me.

So I am in awe every morning, about the wonder of how this all came to be.
