Chickens are about as common a thing as there is in our world today, but we don't even know where they came from for sure and probably never will. Does it matter? Well, maybe not in the larger scheme of things, but then again if we want to understand how our world came to be as it is today the development and spread of such a common and useful life form may well contribute to our understanding of more significant things.
It is amazing how little we know about the world around us. In an age when knowledge is growing exponentially, it can seem like we know a lot. But, we really don't. We're still just beginning to explore the wonderful reality around us. Humility in large doses is our only due. Amen.
