Love What We Do With Food

leave a comment »

Having access to cable TV, which I normally don’t, affords me the opportunity to watch lots and lots of shows on The Food Network and Food Channel. My wife and I really enjoy seeing all of the fantastically diverse ways that humans prepare food, which of course got me thinking (as almost everything does in this wonderful universe God made).

We hear a lot of blather these days about how humans and various animals share something like 99% of our DNA, and of course the conclusion we’re supposed to draw from this ends up being the narrative of godless Darwinian orthodoxy: There’s nothing all that unique about humans. We’re simply evolved to a higher order.

But when you watch The Food Network, you realize what a complete sham this is, shared DNA or not. There is simply no end to the creative human ability to take all sorts of edible things that God has provided for us and turn them into visually astounding, aromatically tantalizing, tastefully delicious culinary experiences. No animal on the face of the earth comes anywhere close. It’s not a matter of degrees, but of chasms, as G.K. Chesterton once said. Just watch a lion or a monkey or any animal prepare his food sometime, and then think about what they’re turning out at the Cordon Bleu, and you get the idea. Just another reason to end the Darwinian farce.
