I'm Not Crazy
Ok, well I might be crazy, but not in reference to this particular topic. When I was a kid I liked to read the encyclopedia in my spare time (yes, I'm THAT girl). I have mentioned to a few people that I am fascinated by ants and aphids because of what I learned from my scholarly readings. Some ants will actually "herd" aphids and "milk" them for food. Now when I bring this up some people look at me like I'm crazy. Clearly I must be making it up or hallucinating or living in a happy little world of ant farming. They vocalize the opinion that I have been listening to too much public radio and clearly I need to switch to Fox News because a wacky lie like ants and aphids must be the propaganda of the liberal media.
Well guess what! The conspiracy is true! God is cool enough to come up with something crazy like that. The complexity and wonders of God's creation are astounding. Think of what an imagination God has to come up with something like ants milking aphids!
Now go and read your encyclopedia and listen to public radio...you might learn something.
