Evolving Creation

Evolving Creation
Michael Gollin
January 2015

***

Too many in my nation
choose the ancient myth
of fixed creation,
denying evolution
in their quest to get to heaven.

The blind led by the
willfully blind
lead the blind into
a fundamentally ignorant doom,
a sad and boring room,
a hell of frozen thinking
where a species never changes.

But my faith is grander.
Why deny the beauty,
the human messy majesty
the facts and arguments
of science —
biology geology
botany zoology
genetics ecology
chemistry cosmology?
The laws of nature are divine
and there before us for us to find.

Open your eyes and see!
Don’t listen just to me.
Behold creation changing
over time and every day
and shaping all of nature
as it leads us on our way.
