Bioluminescence, Genes, Change, GMOs and FOOD

not bioluminescence -- just a flash off a moon jellyfish

Good Morning, God!

For some odd reason I was thinking about bioluminescence this morning. Why? No idea! But, of course, a google search turned up lots and lots of photos — many of them, like the one here, cautioning us that it ISN’T bioluminescence! Then they went on to describe bioluminescence as COLD light. Apparently an electron gets “excited” and go up an energy level and coming back down emits a photon. Hmm. I think I have that right. Ah well, there is TONS more and UCSD has a lovely website.

A tobacco plant PLUS firefly genes

All that is all very well, God. Nature is amazing. What I feel uneasy about is this image of a tobacco plant enhanced with firefly genes. The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil springs to my mind. I suppose this ought to lead me into the question of genetically modified food — GMOs. I find it odd that Europe (with a low level of religious folks) is so ANTI GMO food — while Americans (with a higher level of religiously inclined people) go blithely on EXPERIMENTING.

Way back in my mind is lodged a factoid (maybe true, maybe not) about how tomato plants with lizard genes added have been created. Lizard genes? My mind wobbles! I guess it is about FOOD. FOOD, I feel ought to stay the same! Yes, I know that the Green Revolution has fed the World. Still, I confess to having a DEEP FEAR of changing what we eat. Europe has chosen Tradition. We have chosen Change.

And I — a Lover of Technology, and all things APPLE — am concerned. God, we have taken Freedom between our teeth and are OFF. Off into the unknown. Please, God, help us as we “navigate” the Waterfalls of Change.

  1. Thank you God for sending me the wonderful book on Istanbul. I just got my hands on it and it is so beautiful.

    Please God, help me take care of these children while we are in Istanbul. Help me manage change as that seems to be happening every day with this huge trip. My trust must be in you. This will be a waterfall of change for all of us.
