just a visitor to this planet
When you look at the four photos at left you begin to understand and appreciate how infinitesimal is all of the human race and our brief appearance on this planet, when compared to the vastness of the universe and the endless march of time.
Such astronomical summaries force you to consider whether or not our lives have meaning and how all of this thing called life got started in the first place.
You can believe our existence is the result of some cold, chemical mindless quirk of physics, or perhaps the you may consider we are here as the result of a wise and loving Father.
In short, the photos require that you think about our origins, our purpose, and identity. Does man have a soul, as the ancient Egyptians suggested?
These are the questions that prompt my curiosity.
Do we know anything about life?
Do we know which direction we're headed?
Are we being guided?
