    Most rocks are really, really cool when you look at them close up, or cut them into tiny slices and view them under a microscope. You can identify different minerals based on the colours and the shape of the different crystals, and even figure out how something formed. This one's from a meteorite.

    Stunning. Many rocks, sand particles, and other similar formations are like micro-mosaics. It's a shame we can't really see that up front, but it's amazing what beauty a good microscope can deliver.

    You're right and I apologize. That was kind of harsh. Instead:
    I respectfully disagree.
    Composition, origin and formation of natural materials is well explained by science. Complex, yes. But far too easily explained, IMHO, to be cited as evidence of divine creation or creator.

    It depends if you're talking about The Creator, or just a creator, though...

    I certainly believe in a creator. Just not the one a misinterpreted history book talks about.

    Actually, it's exactly the same thing...as are sub-atomic particles, if they could be seen.
    Everything in nature duplicates itself from the smallest (sub-atomic) to the largest (galaxies). icon_wink.gif
