All Things Denote There Is a God!

       One line I particularly love in The Book of Mormon is : “...all things denote there is a God!” (in Alma 30:44).  It a sentiment I’ve always felt.
       In fact, I remember when I read Charlotte's Web and the spider spun words into his web and people were amazed. And, yes, it was miraculous.
       But honestly, isn't it almost as amazing that a spider can spin a web in the first place (with words or not).  Think about it. We take so many things for granted.  The incredible skills of animals are fascinating.  Especially how different species have such unique abilities (i.e. that spiders spin webs).  
       In E. B. White’s fiction we all recognize Charlotte’s superpowers because they aren’t exactly real.  But, the things that animals do that are real; well, these are testament to me that there is a God!  
       The way everything works in the world is far too intricate and detailed to be happenstance.  At least that’s my take on it.  Just like Alma tells us.
