Google Earth is Watching

Cows I'm sure this points somehow to the marvelous design of God, in ways that we can't yet grasp, but for me it's just downright interesting in that weird, go-figure kind of way. Researchers have used Google Earth to study the sleeping patterns of cattle and deer. What they've found is that cattle tend to sleep in north-south patterns, reflecting not so much the cardinal directions as magnetic north-south. As you may remember studying in school, "Previous research has shown that animals such as birds, turtles and salmon migrate using a sense of magnetic direction, and small mammals such as rodents and one bat species also have a magnetic compass."

Now the only question I have is if God gave cattle, birds, turtles and salmon a magnetic sense of direction, why is it that I so desperately need a GPS? Hmmm.... Something to ask Him later.

Because God want's us to remember that we are lost without Him?



"While I can, I sail east in the Dawn Treader. When she fails me, I paddle east in my coracle. When she sinks, I shall swim east with my four paws. And when I can swim no longer, if I have not reached Aslan's country, or shot over the edge of the world in some vast cataract, I shall sink with my nose to the sunrise and Peepiceek will be head of the talking mice in Narnia." (Reepicheep, "Voyage of the Dawn Treader")
