Last week my neighbour and children came to visit and on Thursday we headed off to the Natural History museum. It is over 40 years since I visited this museum and the one thing I remember is the Blue Whale. Even now it is impressive – so huge and yet feeds on microscopic insects you can hardly see with the naked eye. You can see from the picture how large it is – even the elephants look small standing next to it.
Sometimes it is important just to stand and stare at the wonders of creation such as this – what beauty and majesty such animals possess, especially when you see films of them swimming and diving through the water. I often wonder why people cannot understand the existence of a creator God. Yes, evolution has it’s part to play…. but it seems to me to be even more unlikely that such things came through an accident of nature.
