“Nature is full of such miracles, such transformations, that cannot be explained. The dull lie of ‘natural selection,’ as it is conventionally taught — that creatures came to be through blind, random processes of inertia — is contradicted in every moment of actual experience. And in the miracle of consciousness itself, we can know the immanence and transcendence of our God. In every life, there are such memories, such moments — of the dragonfly; of the sparrows; and many less accountable than those, for the miracle one witnessed was not of the kind that would surprise anybody. In my own life I remember, at the age of six, my experience of the purple of a plum, as something standing at the edge of time, offering a glimpse beyond it.” David Warren in Ottawa Citizen April 8 2012
