I have been thinking about roaches… For one, I am eating alot of dates right now. And I always think that dates, look exactely like roaches!
Not that that is going to stop me in any way from eating and enjoying them 🙂
I once enrolled at a special course at the Natural History museum in London, and one evening they showed us HUGE tropical cockroaches (who eat lettuce) they were as large as your hand and very broad. if you stroked them they started a beautiful purring, singing sound. I thought they were cute.
I have always had a problem with ”Humans” as ”the crown” of God’s creation according to humans. After all, look around you: How nice are humans really?
There are some worthwhile exceptions, but they àre exceptions. (easily weeded out by checking who’s visiting my blog: all worthwhile exceptions.)
Roaches outlive us easily in the case of nuclear disaster… gives a whole new perspective on humans as God’s last word doesn’t it?
I mean it is quite possible that God has no interest in us humans at all, but has plans for the cockroaches. And has developed humans as a means to provide congenial living conditions for roaches. And has planned we will all destroy each other in a nuclear war, so the roaches have a clean, empty earth to play, and develop into something amazing which was the plan from the very beginning.
Now that ís a humbling thought…
