Saya Terdiam

“…when Creationists talk about God creating every individual species as a separate act, they always instance hummingbirds, or orchids, sunflowers and beautiful things. But I tend to think instead of a parasitic worm that is boring through the eye of a boy sitting on the bank of a river in West Africa, that’s going to make him blind. And [I ask them], ‘…are you saying that God created this worm that can live in no other way than in an innocent child’s eyeball?’ ”

Sir David Attenborough, “Wild, Wild Life

Sekadar tie-in buat yang kemarin.

    tp emang Tuhan berkehendak atas segala sesuatu, dan qt sbg hambanya hanya bs pasrah ^^

  2. God has a plan, yeah that sounds cliche but do you know a book namely Silent Spring by Rachel Carson?
    At that book, human destroy pest with DDT and look what happen, the constant use of DDT affect human and the dismiss of pest actually not make things better but it has destroy the balance of nature.
    Well, yeah there are some ways that make human fight the nature in order to survive however there is a limit of it. Because whenever human modified the nature it often backfired.

  3. Well, it’s all about perception. Creationists may look from many beautiful things, because they thought life is as beautiful as that things. And Sir David Attenborough maybe want to look from other perceptions that life is not always beautiful. The boy know better about the hard and bad things of life as the worm does.

    BTW, entry ke-108, ya?

  4. But…but…parasitic worm is a beautiful creature!

    …are you saying that God created this worm that can live in no other way than in an innocent child’s eyeball?
