Day 431-Diversity — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

Today’s beauty is in the diversity of life on islands in the pacific. It is amazing how many varieties of plants and animals live there. It is also amazing how they are affected by the pull of the moon. I was watching the National Geographic channel and was surprised how just being closer or further away from the tide pool caused so many differences. This affected color and size and even feeding habits. It certainly makes one pause and gives tooth to the argument for intelligent design. I do not think that such amazing, find tuned interactions between weather, moon gravitation and animals could have resulted without a greater intelligence.
