And to think, God hand made each of those species individually.

And to think, God hand made each of those species individually. if there is a god he only started life with the big bang he had no part in anything else that happened...like making these animals on topic that huntsman is just a tiny bit bigger then some of the ones in the bush here i have seen in the old abo caves. the ones i have seen are about the size of dinner plates but if you wanna get technical these new ones would measure to be bigger

And to think, God hand made each of those species individually. One could also find similiar inspiring feelings in the process of evolution, or even just matter organizing, as the universe itself developed in such a way that I have enough consciousness to sit here and marvel at it. Whatever, however, or whoever brought this system into existance is to me much more humbling than the notion of a great cosmic sculptor, with hands the same as mine. This is not to say your God, or any other's does not exist, but I feel you may be rewarded by opening up your scope of this place we live.

Goes to show you that there's still discoveries to be made in this world. I wonder what else out there is hidden from us?
