Shooting stars and firing neurons

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. Rom 1:20

In Voyage of the Dawn Treader C. S. Lewis wrote a dialogue between Eustace, a scientific materialist, and Ramandu, a fallen star:

…’In our world,’ said Eustace, ‘a star is a huge ball of flaming gas.’

‘Even in your world, my son, that is not what a star is but only what it is made of .” [Ramandu answers]

We can analyze the contents of our world and try to explain the mechanics of it’s origins and it’s forces, but mysteries remain. We know so much more about the human brain now than we did in the last century, but understanding how brain neurons fire doesn’t explain all that it means to be human. God always reveals more of Himself in our wonder and awe.

Lord, help me to experience what You’ve made with You and through You.
