Ants & Us
I usually enjoy reading Philip Adams’ column in the Weekend Australian Magazine.
His recent column on 16 May 2015 was about religion.
It was factual and riveting.
The article would reinforce atheists of their beliefs and would I suspect cause discomfort for Christians and other religions.
It certainly caused me to question the validity of my religious beliefs.
Religion aside, there was an interesting statistic presented.
Recent estimates put the human population at seven billion. The combined weight of those seven billion people is far outstripped by the combined weight of all the termites on Earth.
Isn’t that an amazing fact? Trivia? Yes, but it helps to put our place into perspective.
