First, watch this video:

Now, read this quick thought for the day, from the man himself, C.S. Lewis:

“If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too.  If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents—the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms.  And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else’s.  But if their thoughts -i.e., of Materialism and Astronomy — are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true?  I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents.  It’s like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk-jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset.”
– God in the Dock (p52-53  Answers to Questions on Christianity)

All right, this isn’t a quick thought.

But it’s one worth thinking about.

Deeply. Seriously.

We’ve been taught for a while now, man, earth, animals are accidental. No reason behind any of it. Go back to the video above—red pandas, an accident? What?

I don’t believe that.

And neither do most of mankind “deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties,” as Jack Nicholson says in A FEW GOOD MEN.
