Is it Random . . . or?

Lions heads were exquisitely carved on the face of the giant, 5 3/8 inch thick, solid ebony, double front doors. Standing at least 12 feet high and 9 feet wide they tipped the scales at around a ton. These people were beyond mega rich.

We rang the door bell and were “chimed” with a brief rendition of, God Save the Queen. The doors swung open and there, in all his glory, was Bitterman, the butler. Dressed in deep maroon, jet black and midnight blue; fitting in every respect. Very proper was he, an Englishman with his snoot in the air and ramrod straight, perfect posture.

We were invited to wait for Sir Arthur in the library. According to Bitterman, he should be out of his antique pewter bath tub and ready to join us in just a ‘dash’ of time.

My eyes spotted the delicately etched teak table on which was perched a vase from the Ming Dynasty. I pondered what would happen if one held it high above one’s head and ‘accidentally’ let it slip from their grasp. I knew for sure that it would fall ending with an abrupt stop on the imported Italian marble floor.

How did I know? Because, Sir Isaac Newton said it would. He called it gravity and it works every time, unless you are aboard a space ship.

If the vase, (pronounced with a short ‘a’ as in Father) is a priceless Ming vase, the chances of it shattering become astronomically in favor, that it will. The rule is this: the more expensive, the better the chance of smashing to smithereens. A 99 cent special vase from Wal-Mart, would bounce a couple times and be immune from such a plight.

What have we learned here? Gravity is a fact, it is not random. We know how it behaves, every time, period!

So we have facts and everything else. She’s kinda pregnant doesn’t count. She is or she isn’t. Opinions, conjecture, guesswork should be relegated to idle chit chat at cocktail parties.

I recently received an interesting email that got my wheels spinning. I would like to share it with you. Lets keep our eyes peeled for some tantalizing facts.

• the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days;
• those of the canary in 14 days;
• those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
• those of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days;
• those of the mallard in 35 days;
• those of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

They are all divisible by seven, The number of days in a week!
Random . . . or?

• Because of its mass, The four legs of the Elephant all bend
forward with four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground
easily. No other animal is built this way.
• The horse rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
• A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.”

Random . . . or?

• Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
• Each orange has an even number of segments.
• Each ear of corn has an even number of rows.
• Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains.
• Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an
even number of bananas, and each row decreases by
one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. Random?

• The waves of the sea roll in on shore exactly twenty-six
times a minute in all kinds of weather. Random?
• Flowers blossom at certain specified times of the day. Random?

Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers that were open and those that were closed! Random?

What are the odds of all of this just happening? Random chaos? Coincidence? Or?

One would think that as much time as mankind has spent on this planet he would have gleaned some understanding of cause and effect.  And, equipped with this information, would naturally gravitate towards getting along better and better with his fellow man. Look around y’all there is no sign that he is making any progress in this area. None!

I’m weary of the way people treat each other and grieved by the apathetic attitude so abundant today.

We have the potential to enjoy our time together during this very short and marvelous existence. It is right at our finger tips.

Will man wake up and discover that there is a better way? Will he discover a definite blueprint for achieving this? A way that is full to the brim with joy? A way that puts some meaningful punch into what would otherwise be a mundane existence?

Well, news flash . . . he has! It is right here, right now and it works first time & every time.  Random  . . or?

The team, here at TG Connection, has the facts, the recipe, the blueprint the, ‘how to,’ in getting along with each other.

It is life transforming, it is huge! It has the power to change our future. Once acquired the response is, “. . . everyone needs to know about this stuff.”.

For, Dear Reader, without it we have NO FUTURE.

It beats stupid by a long shot …every time!
