Friday's Riddles

1) Twice ten are six of us,
six are but three of us.
Nine are but four of us;
What can we possibly be?
Would you know more of us,
twelve are but six of us.
Five are but four, do you see?


2) It cannot be seen,
cannot be felt,
cannot be heard,

It lies behind stars and under hills,
and empty holes it fills.
It comes first and follows after,
ends life, kills laughter.


3) What do the words "soft" and "easy" have in common, aside
from the fact that they both have four letters?

6) I shake hands with many different people. Some pull me close
and some push me away. In the end they always leave me.

Attack of the Kudzu People
Man as an Invasive Species

April 21, 2006


Last month, the Texas Academy of Science named ecology professor Eric Pianka of the University of Texas its "Distinguished Texas Scientist" for 2006. The selection would have been literally unremarkable but for some things Pianka said.

In response to the award, Pianka delivered what he called his "doomsday talk," a litany of humanity's offenses against the environment. He told the audience that humanity has "grown fat, apathetic, and miserable," and wrecked the environment in the process.

Now, this kind of anti-human screed is pretty common in environmental circles. You will probably hear things like this said tomorrow during the "Earth Day" observance.

What is not so common is Pianka's solution to the problem of environmental degradation: a 90 percent reduction in human population.

According to Pianka, the deaths of 5.8 billion people are needed to keep Earth from turning into a "fat, human biomass." As he told his audience, "Every one of you who gets to survive has to bury nine."

And Pianka has a candidate for the job: the Ebola virus. Whereas, according to Pianka, war, famine, and AIDS are too slow and too survivable, Ebola combines the speed and lethality necessary to do the job.

What did his audience think of Pianka' remarks? According to one witness, he received "loud, vigorous, and enthusiastic applause." They laughed when, during the Q&A, he "joked" that "the bird flu's good, too" for achieving the desired lethality.

While Pianka's audience might have loved what he had to say, outside the meeting things were very different. A spokeswoman for Texas governor Rick Perry called Pianka's remarks "abhorrent." That's to say the least.

Pianka insisted, of course, that his remarks had been "taken out of context." His real goal was simply to "warn the public that population growth must slow down."

Okay. Even if Pianka was "merely" engaging in obscene hyperbole, we are still left with the underlying premise that makes such statements possible. According to the radical environmentalist worldview, human beings are a kind invasive species like the kudzu vine. Only, in this case, the habitat being wrecked is the entire planet. For Pianka and his sympathizers, longer lives and higher standards of living for people are bad news for the planet.

This misanthropic view is not unique to Pianka. While few environmentalists would go this far, many agree that fewer and poorer people is important to the survival of the planet. The planet must be protected and, if at all possible, restored to its pristine state. So you blow up loggers, rather than cut down trees.

Fortunately for both people and the environment, there's an alternative: It's the Christian idea of man as a steward. And in this view, man has a unique status within creation, but that status carries responsibilities.

Unlike an invasive species like kudzu or zebra mussels, man is aware when his actions needlessly harm another species or a particular habitat. And because he is created in the image of God, he is motivated to protect the environment and to restore the damage he might have done.

This moral duty to seek the welfare of all creation is a far superior basis for environmental awareness than the misanthropy of people like Pianka. Keep this in mind on this "Earth Day": Which worldview would you rather live under?

The Ant and the Contact Lens

(A True Story by Josh and Karen Zarandona)


Brenda was a young woman who was invited to go rock climbing.

Although she was scared to death, she went with

her group to a tremendous granite cliff.

In spite of her fear, she put on her gear, took a hold on the rope,

and started up the face of that rock.



Well, she got to a ledge where she could take a breather.

As she was hanging on there, the safety rope snapped against

Brenda's eye and knocked out her contact lens.

Well, here she is on a rock ledge, with hundreds of feet

below her and hundreds of feet above her.



Of course, she looked and looked, hoping the lens

had landed on the ledge, but it just wasn't there.



Here she was, far from home, her sight now blurry.

She was desperate and began to get upset,

so she prayed to the Lord to help her find it.

When she got to the top, a friend examined her eye

and her clothing for the lens, but there was no

contact lens to be found. She sat down, despondent,

with the rest of the party, waiting for the rest of them

to make it up the face of the cliff.



She looked out across range after range of mountains,

thinking of that Bible verse that says, "The eyes of the Lord

run to and fro throughout the whole earth."

She thought, "Lord, You can see all these mountains.

You know every stone and leaf, and You know exactly

where my contact lens is.

Please help me."



Finally, they walked down the trail to the bottom.

At the bottom there was a new party of climbers just starting

up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out,

"Hey, you guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?"



Well, that would be startling enough,

but you know why the climber saw it?



An ant was moving slowly across the face

of the rock, carrying it!



Brenda told me her father was a cartoonist. When she told him

the incredible story of the ant, the prayer, and the contact lens,

he drew a picture of an ant lugging that contact lens

with the words, "Lord, I don't know why You want me to

carry this thing. I can't eat it, and it's awfully heavy.

But if this is what You want me to do,

I'll carry it for You."





I think it would probably do some good to

occasionally say, "God, I don't know why

you want me to carry this load.

I can see no good in it and it's awfully heavy.

But, if you want me to carry it, I will."




God doesn't call the qualified.


He qualifies the called.

Verse of the Day



* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

P U R P O S E
But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16


When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
