a little common sense goes a long way

At some point, you have to follow the train of logic.  If the concept of evolution makes more sense and answers a lot more questions than any holy book one might read…I’m inclined to believe there might be something to it.  In watching the Science and History Channels, I have to give myself credit for my own deductive reasoning.  I’m not suggesting that I specialize in these fields of study, but that, since science and math are laws of nature that can be studied, like anything that you study, they need to be applied and reapplied by way of deductive reasoning.  To the question of “how do the bugs get inside the lighting fixture, anyway??” I say: because insects lay their eggs on or in the fixture. I have never looked this up because it satisfies logic; if bugs are attracted to light, if eggs usually require some heat to hatch, since you can’t see the bugs getting in…since they can’t get out..  There are so many questions that we could find the answer to if we just gave it a bit more thought and admit to ourselves that there really is so much we do not know, without forsaking how much we can still learn. An example would be the chicken and the egg.  The chicken came first because it has to incubate the egg.  The problem lies in the pretense that God made all creatures as they are (otherwise there would have to be some process of evolution for a chicken to exist in the first place).  Because one mustn’t deny the Almighty, we forgo what makes the most sense and chalk it all up to a conundrum.  If a tree falls a forest, of course it makes a sound whether or not there is any human ear to receive the resulting sound waves.  Only in matters of quantum physics, might one see it fit to argue whether reality exists outside of the human imagination, but the fact remains that if a tree falls in the forest, you don’t have to hear it in order to see it lying on the ground and can therefore use deductive reasoning and prior experience of what happens if something so large falls to determine that it did, in fact, make a sound. The more background knowledge, the more angles at which yo have to evaluate any circumstance; for that, you need an open mind. Our mind needs to be ready to receive another puzzle piece.  It happens that, the same as we look in the refrigerator time and again– as though something will appear, we tend to try to make sense of nonsense and make fit what does not fit.
