A photograph of real fern fiddleheads in Oconee County, South Carolina.
To even ask the question of the title seems absurd. But an article in The New Atlantis indicates that the question has been asked, and, for some people, the answer is "yes!"
Ridiculous. How far have some of us come from experiencing real life? How far have we come from God's good, although admittedly sin-flawed, creation? Quite a ways, it seems.
This passage from the article struck me:
God's creation is beautiful. The ability to imagine unreal, or partly real, beauty, is part of the image of God in us.
Thanks for reading.
