“Had I been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better ordering of the universe.”
-Alfonso X, King of Castile and Leon, attributed
We have to laugh at ourselves sometimes. We think we know better. This is the premise behind the movie “Bruce Almighty.” God needs some time off so he gets Jim Carrey to take his place for awhile. And, of course, hilarity ensues! At some point we need to stop trying to control the universe and understand that there is perfect order in all things. Always has been. Always will be
