Miracles, in the case of phenomena
we cannot explain, surround us on every hand:
Life itself is the miracle of miracles.

– George Bernard Shaw

Thumbs Up

We take our thumbs for granted.

However, without them, we wouldn’t be able to button a shirt, pick up a coin, hold a pen, throw a dart, or perform other routine tasks. Without our thumbs, we would be able to hold a glass, open a door with a key, or throw a ball without a thumb. Your thumb is critical for everyday life.

Isaac Newton, the Father of modern science, stated, “In the absence of any other proof, the thumb would convince me of God’s existence.”

Philosophy and Pumpkins

What Christianity says is merely this. That this repetition in Nature has its origin not in a thing resembling a law but a thing resembling a will. . . . Christianity holds that the world and its repetition came by will or Love as children are begotten by a father, and therefore that other and different things might come by it. Briefly, it believes that a God who could do anything so extraordinary as making pumpkins go on being pumpkins, is like the prophet, Habbakuk, Capable to tout [capable of anything]. If you do not think it extraordinary that a pumpkin is always a pumpkin, think again. You have not yet even begun philosophy. You have not even seen a pumpkin.

—G. K. Chesterton
