In the beginning... three simple words that not only define where the Airpigz blogazine and podcast is at on this very day, but they're also the words that lead us right up to: 'God created the heavens and the earth.'
I've built AirPigz to be all about a passion for flight, for anything that gets us off the ground. But I also believe that the foundation of a desire to fly is that it gives us both a feeling of freedom and a fresh and special way to look at the earth... from above. Flying isn't just a different perspective, it's a whole new dimension.
For me, flying gives me the best view to see what God has created. There's a lot of talk about 'evolution' these days, but if Darwin was here to chat about our actual 'origins' while at Starbuck's sipping on a fancy coffee, he'd be the first to say that his research never came up with an answer for the question: 'where did life come from?'
Pretty fascinating that almost 150 years later, science honestly still has no idea where life came from. It's the biggest mystery we'll ever run thru our gray matter, and that's exactly why it's the mystery we need to be chasing.
Believing that the universe was 'created' by God doesn't mean you understand how it could be possible, but it does mean that life has purpose, design, and real meaning. You can't go shoot wheel landings in a taildragger on a grass runway and really come away thinking that life is meaningless. Somehow you can feel it, you know that life really does matter.
I sure don't have all the answers (none of us do) but the journey of my life, which has included a lot of great flight experiences, has lead me to the simple conclusion that God really is here.
