I believe in prophecy. And I also believe in science. Those who believe the first but not the second, I truly do not know what to say to them: these are those who disbelieve Darwin, and ignore the evidence of true human intelligence. Not to say that human intelligence does not have limits, but there are some things that, despite “just being a theory”, make absolute sense. And then those who believe the second but not the first I can more empathize with, as I once was one of these. A late product of the Enlightenment, when it was high fashion to doubt anything that could not be rationally derived. But as Hamlet said, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy”. Enough has happened to me that for me not to believe in things of the spirit would be irrational. To any who do not believe, all I can think is that they merely have yet to be called. Not me, however. I was called, and I seek to reconcile the science and the sanctity. I don’t believe it to be a hopeless cause. One wonders, though, how to begin…
