I’m just catching up on all my e-mails now in my various accounts (don’t ask), and have been reading the last weeks issues of The Writer’s Almanac. found an interesting quote on the December 27th edition.

Charles Darwin wrote, “Probably all organic beings which have ever lived on this earth have descended from some one primordial form, into which life was first breathed. There is grandeur in this view of life that…from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.”

Most people with a serious theological background will try to explain to you that Evolutionism and Creationism are total opposites. But if you read his quote, what better concept of God creating life could you ever read? “…into which life was first breathed…” What a beautiful statement that is.

It makes me wonder about how closeminded some people can truly be.
