  1. Enjoyed this very much! Imagining how full the world would be if some species did not die out is mind boggling. We know so little about creation, proven by the more we learn the more we see there is to learn! I believe we could be infinitely learning about this world, its inhabitants, and its resiliency in the face of changes because our Creator’s power is infinite.
