Personally, I do not have the fortitude to argue evolution versus creationism, Christians get crazy over this one. I have heard that God made the earth look older, and carbon dating is muck-a-muck. On the other side, I have heard that we evolved from single organisms from the muck-a-muck bottom of the sea.
I don’t care- I am neither scientist, nor theologist. I only have one question though…if every living thing evolved from sea slim..why didn’t homo sapiens hold onto wings- at one point there was a break off from the birds- what was the logic in not keeping the ability to fly? Now, most of us only do it in our dreams; about a half-dozen of us put on special suits and fly from mountain tops, but really, they are just dropping. If we want to fly we pay- a lot. And it is a hassle these days…thanks extremist haters. I am grateful for a birds eye view from the airplane- it is beautiful and I am always amazed at how an airplane full of people and loads of stuff defies gravity long enough to get me to my destination almost on time every time.
But, I am jealous of the birds. They evolved with wings in tact. What if we human had kept wings, if you believe Darwin’s theory to be correct, or what if God gave us wings? First I think the environment would be in better shape because there would never have been a need for transit of any kind- no planes, trains or automobiles! Teenagers wouldn’t be bugging parents for the car keys- but I guess parents would have different issues with their young flying with the wrong crowd. Maybe if parents had a son with pants on the ground, they would clip his wings until he flew straight!
From birth the world would be at our feet- or within reach with our wings.
Our buildings would have no need for escalators and elevators. We would not need any button with the word ‘UP’ on it. Superman would still be Superman, and the amazing thing about him is that he could fly WITHOUT wings…wow! Clothing- I think of models; would or runway models get so skinny their wings would molt? Don’t let Kate Moss sit on your couch- it takes a month to get all those feathers off the couch! We women (and yes that includes Adam Lambert) would color our wings- and red would actually be red and not fade after a few washes!
There would be no cages for any bird- we would all be good whistlers. But the main thing is that we could soar to greater heights- literally. I am just wondering if a ‘birdseye’ view would help our world view. Maybe if we shared the same sky, we wouldn’t fight so much over land. No matter how poor a child was, they could fly high enough to see the beauty of the earth only some get to see and buy- and feel free enough to dream like they should.
What if we had wings? Most of us do- in our dreams… in our souls, reaching up and outward to the unknown- to know. We imagine wings on the backs of angels- angels who look like us only with holy attributes. Angels don’t have to worry about getting enough exercise or fly-by shootings… Would we ruin it if we were able to fly?
