The theology of beetles

God is inordinately fond of

beetles: they cover all
parts. Comprehensive arguments

for design, they cannot
comprehend the foreign

heavens! They are unfamiliar
with the spectroscopic

analysis of stars:
hydrogen helium magnesium sodium

and the iron of swords
or chastity belts, of the nails

of the cross. Our footsteps
move them but do not

call it wonder.

18.3.1990, Forth Street, Christchurch
