Biology has progressed tremendously due to the model that Darwin put forth.

that a modern eye could be produced gradually from
a much simpler structure,
he did not even attempt to explain how the simple light
sensitive spot that was his starting point actually worked.

To many people this inference was loaded with overtones

the creation,
the beginning of the universe.
- Michael Behe

It is a shock to us in the twentieth century to discover,
from observations science has made, that the fundamental
mechanisms of life cannot be ascribed to natural selection,
and therefore were designed.
But we must deal with our shock as best we can and go on.
- Michael Behe

A man from a primitive culture who sees an automobile
might guess that it was powered by the wind or by an
antelope hidden under the car,
but when he opens up the hood and sees the engine he
immediately realizes that it was designed.
- Michael Behe

Since natural selection requires a function to select,
an irreducibly complex biological system,
if there is such a thing, would have to arise as an
integrated unit for natural selection to have anything to act on.
- Michael Behe

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

True love is like ghosts,

we as a people will get to the promised land.

Once you have seen the truth
you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.
If you are attached to your pain, resentment,
and self-righteousness, and addicted to your emotional reactions,
this will be a difficult step for you.
Taking action requires letting go of the very thing
you have been holding on to for so many years.
There is comfort in what we find familiar,
even if we are experiencing pain and suffering.
The pain and suffering itself becomes the familiarity we seek.
It takes absolute faith in yourself
plus courage, will, and discipline to let go.
But once you let go, it will be as if
the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
