God's work can be seen by all

IN relation to the debate on God and the universe, I recently heard the story of a man who took his three-year-old son on a country walk and came upon a pile of rocks forming a perfect tower.

Even the young boy knew that stones just don't stack themselves. The tower had to be the work of an intelligent being. When we observe patterns and design in the natural order, it is reasonable to understand that there must be an intelligence that underlies it all.

A child can understand this, but not, apparently, your average village atheist. Sad, really.
