God's Imponderables

There are some concepts about God we humans just can't fathom.

I think He does it on purpose!

Why make the flea? Does it really have a purpose? It invades your pets and homes, sucks blood and makes itchy red bumps, then falls off to make eggs and more little parasitic babies. But why? Or did He make them after the Fall of Man to show us the error of our ways?

What about the avocado? Did He really have to make the pit so big? Why not just make a smaller...whatever-it-is so the seed wasn't so huge? And just what the heck is an avocado anyway? It is a spreadable fruit, a slimy vegetable , or just some form of plant butter? No matter how you slice it, it's just weird.

Let's not leave out the animal kingdom! The platypus has to be the strangest animal ever. Mammal that lays eggs, has a duck bill and a beaver's tail. Methinks God did this just to mess with Darwin's mind, just when the scientist thought he had God down to a formula. Okay, I can't really blame Him for this one- and it just goes to show you that God does have a sense of humor!

The anglerfish (that really scary/ugly/weird fish in Finding Nemo)- why did God make that thing? Was it to help catch prey? The little fishies see the pretty light, then when they finally see the anglerfish's face, they're shocked into immobility for easier consumption. Maybe the prey gets to think 'Man, is that thing uuuugly!' before it meets it's demise, but  the ending is the same- though I have to admit, God did the right thing in putting that critter in the deepest, darkest part of the ocean.

And what about us? Science says we're only using 10% of our brains. Why? Maybe Adam and Eve had the full capacity of their brains. Of course if they did, we might not be in the mess we are now. But then again, maybe they did, and because they chose not to utilize their grey matter, God said 'Let there be stupidity' and took most of their brains away from them until the Second Coming.

Unfortunately, we'd have to wait for the Second Coming to get these answers. Everything in God's time you know.

Do you have any imponderables about why God made what He made? I'd love to hear them!
