A Wonder of the World.

12. The Big Bang—4
"All of the elements, chemicals and materials with which we’re familiar were born in a cosmic game of “Survivor.” Although there was initially an equal amount of quarks and anti-quarks, somehow a tiny surplus of quarks emerged in the particle-anti-particle annihilations of the early universe. For every thirty million anti-quarks, there were thirty million and one quarks. Thus one quark survived every time thirty million quarks and anti-quarks destroyed each other and this incredibly small proportion of surviving quarks constitutes all the matter in the universe. There is no current explanation as to why there was, fortunately, an excess of quarks."

Modern Scienceto the Mind of God

The bread always seems to rise just a little higher, no matter what the yeast does.

Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches." Again he asked, "What shall I compare the kingdom of God to? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough."

It is the yeast of a revolt. There are those who get to have their cake and eat it too, see. is almost naughty. Yet sometimes, the Baker tells His good lil' chefs to take the yeast out of the bread to help Him out.
