[quotable Koontz]

Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I will be the first to admit that some of what you wrote about it beyond me and beyond my scope of even wanting to understand. Call me simple I reckon. I applaud someone seeking and questioning because God’s Word says, “those who seek Him will find Him when they search with all their heart.” Seek away lil sis but always come back to the Center. have never read any Koontz. May have to check out some of his stuff. One last thought: everything happens or anything can happen?

    • When I first started learning all this, I thought that this was all beyond me as well. But it’s incredibly fun to see how God carefully planned every single tiny bit to fit.

      You know, my greatest desire for others is that they won’t be afraid of questions – I’ve been there where I was afraid that if I ask this question, my faith might crumble. 10 years after that, and I have learned to appreciate questions. If anything, those questions strengthened my faith. I guess I’ll write about that journey sometime. It was a crazy one.

      If you want to read something of Koontz, start with Odd Thomas series. That’s where I started (by pure accident, too…) and I couldn’t stop afterwards. The best book of that series is Brother Thomas, which is #3, but it won’t have full impact unless you know the history prior to it.

      You’re right – anything can happen. English is still a second language for me 🙂

  • I don’t ignore science. Never have. Have studied history over the years and see how some things fit together. I know, also, that in our years… just the last 100-150 … reading, studying, digging have increased from nearly nothing to almost too much. So often it’s hard to just read Genesis [which I’m doing at the moment] and not wonder. I’ve also read a number of fictionalized books that deal with these same issues. And, in my travels, around the US and other portions of the world, seeing fossils at high mountain range [which makes no sense, spiritually, but does after Noah’s flood stretch], just adds more “hmm-ing” to the mind. What I often say is that when we die and get to heaven we will finally get all the answers we’ve struggled with OR it won’t make any difference any more, b/c all we’ll want to do is worship our Lord and be with our friends/family/Biblical heroes.

    There’s just SO MUCH that we can question, see, teach, revise. You’re learning lots. God can open more doors for you. [I always count on that for me, too.]

    • Often it’s hard to just read Genesis and not wonder. – indeed! And it’s so fun to discover that the real story of creation fits that one!

      The fossils at high mountain range actually is still a mystery – I mean, the flood sort of does make sense – but where did all the water go afterwards, if it was high enough to cover the ENTIRE earth? (And the scientists are relying more on the fact that the surface of the Earth has changed dramatically in the years, so what we now know as mountains could easily be underwater before the tectonic plates moved and squished them to rise above the water.)

      And you’re right, we’ll get ALL the answers we need later – yet it’s still fun to discover the hidden mysteries of God’s creation.
