Ralph Vaughan Williams

Heard on ABC FM Sunday 14 Dec 08:

Ralph Vaughan Williams great uncle was Charles Darwin. Ralph was young at the time of the controversies surrounding Darwin’s famous works, but was aware of them. He is reported to have asked his mother what the fuss was about. She replied along the lines of: “The Bible tells us that God made the world in 6 days. Uncle Charles thinks it took a little longer. But it doesn’t matter, either way, it’s quite marvelous.”

I also note that the theme of the New Year’s fireworks in Sydney this year is ‘creation’. In an article about that the designer remarked that ‘creation puts us in touch with nature’…it used to put us in touch with God, of course, but a century and a half of evolutionary fiction has made the disjunct between the creation and its creator…just as Paul observed in Romans 1.

Eric,

"creation puts us in touch with nature" sure sounds like tautology.

I guess the NYE focus on 'creation' is all geared to introduce the upcoming commemoration of the high priest of origins, Charles Darwin. As the remembrance festivities are about to commence watch for devotees within the Sydney Anglican Diocese to be interviewed. Their response will be cause for tears because they will give unbelievers reason to continue in their unbelief.
