Not for nothing was Theology proclaimed
“The Queen of Sciences”.
Not lately, of course.
Not in our hyper-scientific-materialistic-
(Not to be sarcastic, but look where that’s got us!)
But, why wouldn’t it be?
Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Astronomy
draw their findings and advances
from that which already was,
simply needing to be uncovered.
The theologian, the preacher, the believer,
posit known from unknowable,
from the invisible, untouchable,
silent, unrecognized reality
way beyond us and our physical world.
They live in the Spirit realm
where anecdote counts as evidence,
faith creates substance,
revelation proves what is real.
Where more than matter, matters
and Soul is the quantum leap.
And the idea that there is,
“Nothing out there but chalk.” *
is merely a scientific assumption.
