A few years back, a stupid 90s pop song suggested that the human race was merely mating mammals likened unto primates on a popular scientific television program. Um, that’s pretty ridiculous, if you ask Kath. Check it out:
Plus there are WAAAAAY better episodes to discover by clicking our channel changer to something else…
And now I would like to share a poem from a few years ago (I wrote it for extra credit for Biology 100 at BYU). It is not exactly related, but it still speaks of these ideas of science/God/creation, et cetera. Again, I’m no scientist (and don’t pretend to be!). But I like to try to explore the ideas of reconciliation of seemingly opposing truths (over which theologians, experts, and philosophers have fought for centuries!). HERE IT IS!
Creation or evolution?
What’s the solution?
Did God make man?
Or is it from apes we began?
Some thump their Bibles, saying evolution is libel
Some their microscopes claiming God is a hoax…
Creation or Evolution?
What’s the solution?
In this time of scientific and religious growth,
maybe the answer is BOTH!
What didjaylthink? Again, I don’t pretend to be an expert (but check out more about Mormon scientist Henry Eyring here!) and I CERTAINLY don’t pretend to be the only person who thinks creation and evolution do not need to be mutually exclusive (line of propriety YET AGAIN!).
But seriously that poem is pretty awesome 🙂
(read it again and ponder every. single. word.)
And now a beautiful song from a band that has had on an indelible influence on not only music, not only the world, but also on Katherine!
(the title is phrase-twisting Mr. Chuck 🙂 Darwin’s famous piece…)
There is obviously a lot more to say about these ideas (and you better believe I have more to write!), but this much will suffice for today.
This is a picture from an LDS temple, where we learn more about how divine (of organisms) we really are.
(and I’m allowed to show this pic in case you are wondering!)
Readers: What are YOUR thoughts on evolution,
science, God, creation, etc.?

We are a special species.”
