My sister-in-law Margi and I met for conversation tonight, as we do every Tuesday while our husbands rehearse with NFC Brass. Her enthusiastic report of a weekend retreat she attended drew me in. The speakers’ topic, “The Chemistry of Life and the Image of God,” brought on lively discussion. As Margi capsulized the series, she referred to evolution and gave several theories offered. We could both agree that humans have out of necessity evolved through environmental changes since creation.
Fresh from that conversation I went about my blog reading for the evening. A friend had linked to a site that offered these images that illustrate some evolutionary changes we might experience in our foreseeable future:

Some might think we’ll need to develop gills if the globe keeps warming. But we don’t need to go there.
