How Cute! 

Q: Why does cuteness exist?

While going to University, the professors told us that an infant’s appeal (cuteness) allows parents to feel an emotional attraction to the infant there by, caring for it. All this is due to evolution guaranteeing the survival of our species.

I can understand that cuteness helps an individual make it in this hostile world, however, is evolution responsible? Evolution – this mix of accidents that all spontaneously occurred at just the right time under just the right circumstances? Or does cuteness come from God the creator who designed it with a purpose?

Is cuteness something that transcends survival? Does God like cuteness? Did God create cuteness because He likes it and we need all the help we can get surviving a world of selfish humans? Is cuteness from God?

A:

Genesis 1:27 God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.

I’m just asking.

Deuteronomy 4:32 Ask questions. Find out what has been going on all these years before you were born. From the day God created man and woman on this Earth, and from the horizon in the east to the horizon in the west-as far back as you can imagine and as far away as you can imagine-has as great a thing as this ever happened? Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? MSG.

 

 

God And Technology

I’ve actually met a few people who think that God, the creator, is anti-technology and prefers that humans live… well… as the theme song to Gilligan’s Island says, ”without a single luxury”.  Ironically, all of these folks I’ve encountered drove cars, talked on cell phones and watched cable TV!

For people anywhere who believe that technological advancements are un-Godly I asked God in thought:  Did God intend for humans to live primitive life styles, ”as primitive as can be”, “without a single luxury” and modern technology?

A:  Electricity is part of creation.  God gave humans brains to solve problems, design machines and build buildings.  God created the natural laws of physics and those same laws make gears turn, water run through pipes, air molecules lift wings for flight, light waves transmit to receivers and chemicals react with one another.

Jesus was a carpenter who built things from wood using hand tools.  Since He didn’t use a circular saw and pad sander does that mean power tools are evil?  I say no based on the fact that he did use technology of 2000 years ago, although, nothing fun like electric drills.  I’ve not yet found anything in the Bible that bans technology.

We can all use technology for doing good or evil so is technology the problem or are we humans the problem?

Hey!  The professor used bicycle technology to power the battery in the radio.  So they were not, “as primitive as can be, as primitive as can be”.
