Seeing Nature

My sister sent me this video adaptation of Brian Doerksen's Creation Calls.  It makes me think about what people see, whether they live around the globe or down the hall, when they look at nature's beauty.

Some see the mighty hand of Allah.
Some see beautiful illusions that cloak the ultimate truth of Brahman or Nirvana.
Some see the glorious creations of Yahweh.
Some see the results of random chance.
And some just shrug their shoulders and see nothing at all.

I understand the many reasons why humans see nature differently, and I respect them all. Fact is, neither Muslims nor Hindus nor Buddhists nor Jews nor Christians nor Atheists nor Agnostics can prove that their beliefs are right, and all the others are not.

But as for me - well, I'm with Doerksen...
