Not The Brightest Crayon in the Box, But God

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

Being an educator and having earned a doctoral degree as well as having taught graduate courses in many countries of the world, I appreciate the pursuit of knowledge and greatly endorse it. Humanity takes great pride in boasting of her achievements. The late Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever Your Mind Can Conceive And Believe, It Can Achieve.” Humanity has elevated itself to god status because of the great increase in knowledge. I wonder if we are really as smart as we think we are? Some people like J. H. McKenna, Ph.D Senior Lecturer, History of Religious Ideas, U of CA Irvine posits that God Is Unconvincing To Smart Folks Because People are Smarter Than A Non-Existent God. Well, I may not be the brightest crayon in the box but I am smart enough not to believe that! The Sacred Scriptures have much to say about the perceived brilliance of humanity when compared to the wisdom of God.
