Could science and religion both be right about what happens after death?
Resolving and Evolving
© May 1, 2011
Richard O. Harris
When I go to receive the wages for my sins
I will leave this flesh I have been in
Yet I believe I will also continue to evolve
The twenty one grams of weight in difference
Between what we currently see and sense
To me seems to be something that involves
Faith or Facts we believe but have not seen
Neither science nor church know what it means
Maybe both are right and our evolution continues on
After all, twenty one grams can make quite a jewel
And the jewel maker has so many different tools
We must admit such a practice can continue for eons
Are we arrogant enough to believe we are the end of evolution
Or that religions have all the answers and solutions
Perhaps each has a piece of a multi-part puzzle of change
Personally, I choose to think we may have only 2 of the grams
That compose the puzzle leaving nineteen remaining yet to understand
And I hope to receive when my wages are paid and I reach that range.
