I wasn’t going to use this one…

…but I just had to!  I saw it on another site, and I saved it just because I thought it was really cool; it was not for this blog, and yet here it is.

What an amazing shot!

As I looked at it some more, I couldn’t help but think that Nature is truly something. How that eagle can see its prey while airborne and then swoop in and grab it out of the water while remaining airborne! When I see things like that, I remember my wonderful education, where I learned that these things evolve over millions, or was it zillions, of years, and that this evolution is basically by chance.  Imagine, growm up pond scum that can do that!  It’s truly miraculous!

When you think that the eagle didn’t start out having these abilities, and that they just kind of happened somehow over all those eons to keep the bird, or whatever it was, from starving; it’s even more amazing!  Just think: the creature needed to be able to do this to survive, and over the millions of years it took to develop somehow, it survived anyway. And then just think how amazing it is that this is all proven by a record of fossils that doesn’t include what the eagle was during all of those millions of years, so we won’t get too confused I would imagine.

This picture amazes me more and more as I think about it!

And what is the result of all of this evolution?  Why we got a really cool national symbol, the bald eagle, and all by happenstance!, yes it is a miracle all right!

OK, had enough of this foolishness yet? Fine, no more kidding around…

What an awesome Creator our God is!  His wisdom and His creativity are truly wonderful and marvelous.  And to think that the God who did all of this is interested in you and me.  We are blessed indeed, and have so much to be thankful for!

One last note: If you are still in school getting your wonderful education, please remember that only the ridiculous part of this post goes on your midterm.  If you use the part that makes sense, here at the end, they’ll toss you out in the street with the rest of us loony tunes.  Hey, I’d know.  I used to always tell them what they wanted to hear, and I got through it!

    This was a great post. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. Love the ‘tongue in cheek’… but really my grandkid’s have to provide the answers the curriculum demands, even though they don’t believe it and neither do most of their teachers..
    Good Post and GREAT picture!
