Yep . . . this is a things that make ME go hmmm post . . .
Who was the first person to eat an egg?? What on earth was it that made that person think that eating something that basically came from an obnoxious place and is a chicken embryo would be a good thing? I reckon that person must have been literally starving and on their last legs, or a genius. Either way, I am like wow. What a gift to mankind! Without eggs . . . there would be no lovely chiffon cakes or angel food cakes or . . . well . . . cake!
Which brings me to my next one . . .
Cake, cookies, pies, etc. where did they come from? How did anyone ever come up with the idea to combine things like sugar, flour, fat, eggs, leavening, etc to come up with these things? I am not complaining by any stretch. In fact I think we owe them a great debt of gratitude! Baking is such an exact science. They must have been very smart indeed!
Up until the last 130 years or so the fastest mode of transportation on earth was the horse, and yet everything was here on the planet to make cars/buses/trains/planes. Did people somehow become smarter than they were for the six thousand or so years prior to that? And . . .
You could say the same thing about a lot of things . . . telephones, computers, televisions, radios, all types of modern technology! Why was the world content for thousands of years and then all of a sudden in less than 200 years all of these things come forth. When I think of the Industrial revolution and all kinds of advancements in the history of the world the wheels in my brain start turning and I wonder why did these things come about when they did. Were we not always smart enough/adept enough/intuitive enough to have had these things all along? Why did it take so long to discover them? Or was it all part of a Divine plan . . . hmmm . . .
If you have a dream that you are falling . . . will you really die if you hit the bottom? Or is that just an old wives tale . . . . have you ever hit the bottom in a falling dream? I haven't. I always wake up first.
What colour is a mirror?
People used to hammer their thoughts and writings into stone and metal sheets . . . and now they type them into thin air and they are there forever, just as forever or maybe even more forever than they were when they were hammering them into stone and metal . . .
HAVE WE SOMEHOW BECOME SMARTER???
This . . . and also is time really speeding up? Because I don't know about you, but my days seem to be getting shorter and shorter. I oftimes find myself wondering however I got everything done that I got done when I was working full time . . . and why did the summer school holidays seem to take forever to pass when I was a child and now they disappear in a puff of smoke?
If the theory of evolution is true and many people believe that it is . . . why aren't apes still turning into men? Why are there still apes for that matter? If you had a choice between staying an ape or becoming a man, would you not choose to become a man? And how did fish somehow come to walk on land? What was it about a fish that decided that it could go against its very instinct to survive and suddenly hop out onto dry land and live? Especially when you are told that the instinct to survive is the most basic of all instincts and built into each of us naturally.
How anyone in this day and age could believe that the world is flat. Don't laugh. I know some people who actually believe this and that the idea that the world is round is a huge hoax and a conspiracy. They have paper documentation which proves their hypothesis, or which they think proves it at any rate. I'm not joking.
And finally . . . .
What if the Hokey Pokey is actually what its all about . . . .
A thought to carry with you . . .
