Seeing Is Believing

Jesus scolded "Doubting Thomas" for requiring visual evidence before believing. But God must chuckle about our visual evidence demands when the very process of transfering any image (holy or not) to the little movie theatre in our brain is in itself a miracle. The visual system that can look up at the North Star and then turn around and thread a needle may be comparable to pulling off a moon landing. Somehow light reflections are turned into electical impulses and then our brain sorts them out to produce the exact image we are staring at. And this process happens so fast that we get to see life as a motion picture instead of a collection of still frames. If Thomas only realized what took place between the cornea and the cerebral cortex every second, accepting the Resurrection account might have been a breeze.
