Recently my friend asked me a tricky question, “do you believe in evolution?” In the instant I was surround with several of my close friends, and distant peers and I felt unsure. I answered with a simple, “I don’t know” and quickly jumped into a different conversation with some of my other peers.
About a week later the same question came into my head, I didn’t feel guilt but curiosity. I had thought of all the scientific theories that had been taught to me throughout all my years. It was so simple to remember the lessons and videos that MANY of my science teachers had taught me. But my mind had continually been stumped on how such an amazing planet and world could be made by an explosion. This one theory had never clicked.
Throughout the years I have been blessed to witness amazing countries and beautiful wonders. Whether it be the plain ocean for miles in every direction or scenic cliffs and desert rock… All leaves me with one question,
How were such beautiful places created and yet people still do not believe in a higher power?
Many things in the world and gospel are still unknown and so many people believe that we should know all things. I do not believe the same. Heavenly Father has so many things yet to unveil and while we could be annoyed or upset at it we can treat these “secrets” as gifts. Presents \ that we are patiently waiting to unwrap.
Boyd K. Packer states, “All nature seems to bespeak the works of God.”
So to that question , “do you believe in evolution?” My answer is this, I do not know if I believe in evolution for it has not yet been unveiled to me. But what I do believe in is my Heavenly Father. And whether it be the flowers in your yard or the Hoodoo’s in Bryce Canyon or the spectacular waterfalls in Milford Sound I believe our heavenly Father was there and is the superior creator. I am grateful for the wonderful world he has created for me.
