These are pictures of ice crystals (snow flakes) that Wilson Bentley took in 1908. Starting in 1885, Bentley took over 5000 pictures of ice crystals, each obviously distinct. They clearly show the incredible complexity and variety of Creation.

Call it what you want – Intelligent Design, Creation Science, Creationism, or Dumb Luck – but even the casual observer is stunned by the repeating but unique manner in which "nature" plays itself out. Even the snowflakes, even the birds of the air, and even the hairs on your heads.

Today marks the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal. I'm not a supporter of abortion "rights", but neither am I a supporter of man-made laws against abortion. I believe that abortion should be "safe, legal, and rare". The alternative, in our media-hyped, sex-up culture, is just too horrendous to consider.

But consider this. The creative power that makes every snow flake different... what has it accomplished in a zygote or a fetus? The miracle of life to be rudely yanked away as a convenience to the Baal of our American Culture?
