|My pet dog Jezzell thinking about Evolution|
By John Bedson
Who helped me to tidy my backyard by collecting these dead leaves and putting them in the corner? Was it me? - No. Was it God? - There is no evidence of that. Was it blind chance? - No.
Was it the wind? - That answer is only partially correct. It was the wind acting together with all of the other forces of nature such as gravity, the Higgs Boson Field, Quantum Mechanics, the nature of the fabric of the Universe and a multitude of other forces and effects of nature acting together and in harmony, but without conscious thought, to produce something that has symmetry, function and the appearance of design.
But there was no designer.
How long did it take? It took approximately thirty minutes of strong wind to produce this result.
Christadelphians who reject Evolution often quote the simile of a wind blowing though a junk yard not being able to produce a jet airliner no matter how many millions of years it might take. But a few minutes of wind through my garden gave me that result. Many millions of years of Evolution produced Jezzell, one of my Cocker Spaniels who can be seen in the upper right of the picture.
There is no difference between the results or the method by which the two results were obtained. It was NOT blind chance. It was the forces of nature doing their thing capriciously, without premeditated thought or even a knowledge of what had been achieved. It was an indifferent universe doing its thing.
