A brief play from Wendell Berry’s Life is a Miracle:
Isaiah (finger in the air and somewhat oblivious of the historical superiority of the modern audience): The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as of the flower of the field.
Edward O. Wilson (somewhat impressed, but nevertheless determined to do his bit for “evolutionary progress”): But . . . but, sir! Are you aware of the existence of the electromagnetic spectrum?
You’ll (perhaps) better understand the context of this random post by reading the discussion I have been having on the Times & Seasons blog regarding the scientific validity of Noah’s flood.
