Imagine if animals could talk like humans
This is something to ponder,
What would animals say?
How would they express themselves?
Animals have intelligence,
Not in the same way as humans,
However, communication would be different,
Dogs would be great communicators,
If they could speak like humans,
Take this all in,
Animals are what you make of them,
The future is interesting,
Animals will evolve,
The journey in evolution continues.
I have never seen God help out the military or law enforcement
Think about all of the wars and destruction in the world,
Yet, God never shows up,
What has he done for the military?
Or law enforcement,
In God we Trust,
It should be In Science We Trust,
Science is tangible and a reality,
Destruction keeps happening,
People keep acting the way they do,
Yet, God never does anything,
No response or action,
Yet, billions believe in him,
I like to see things while I am alive on planet Earth,
How about you?
Believe in what you want,
It is a free world,
And again, carpe diem.
