If i think of “God” “Almighty” as the (to some) “Unknown” Artist…then, i can think of His works of art aka “the creation” found on Earth (and Earth)…i.e., plants, trees, grasses, bugs, flowers, bushes, bunnies, kitties, monkeys, doggies, bears, …etc., Man & Woman…as “individual” stand alone or stand together exhibited…pieces of artwork…Magnificent, Beautiful, Awe-Inspiring!!:)…
That reveal MUCH about the artist’s…personality, intelligence, style, aesthetic, etc.
Artists work in differing media/mediums…pastel, paint, charcoal…when appreciating or examining various works of human artists…you may detect a similar signature…found in each work/piece.
A painting is a painting. A sculpture is a sculpture. Same artist—different work…but same hands performing/making various/different productions.
To clump and lump all numerous paintings and brush strokes done by the same artist as the one and only, same/exact picture/piece…because of some similarities…is stupid!;)
An artist can work with numbers, letters, words, music, metal, canvas of choice…whatever he chooses and how ever he chooses to express his artistry/intelligence/creativity.
Same artist is capable of producing differing works in different media with different results yet retain a similar signature of style/caliber of excellence!
Evolution is a lack of appreciation of the “Unknown” Artist…to clump and lump “individual” “distinct” “separate” works of artistry all together as the same product/production/human is illogical to me.
IF You get to know any particular artist…well enough…perhaps, you can detect differences between and/or similarities and signature style between (differing/various) works.
Basically, what am trying to say/explain about evolution vs. creation…i have four kids…aka works of art formed/produced by my husband and myself…they have similarities as siblings…because they come from the same parents, however, it would be foolish for me to assert they are the same exact person…”work of art”…(in progress).
No, they are 4 “distinct” separate individuals. To be appreciated/respected/loved individually.
All creation was made by the same Creator/Artist (some of us know Him by His chosen name: Yahweh/Jehovah) so, of course, there could be similarities found in His WORK…but, each is a differing species…product/art production/piece of work…worthy of praise to the Amazing-Almighty-Artist!🙂
anyway, enough of my ramblings for now…interested in further reading:
Questions about God
sometimes…i think of us humans…as walking works of art (in progress)…(capable of serving a purpose of beauty or a beautiful purpose)…(completely understood by our Creator!)
