Why Are Plants Green and Not Black?
I've always wondered this...
When I was in my college biology class I asked the teacher, “Why are plants green?” Her answer, “Because chlorophyll is green,” and I could almost hear the unspoken “Duh” in her voice. I was shy back then and I didn’t push back with the question, “But, why is chlorophyll green? Does it have something to do with the wavelength of light our sun puts out?” So I never got my answer.
So this weekend I found the answer, and it’s quite interesting. Have a listen.
I’m curious. Did you find this interesting? Please let me know below.
The Son of God, Jesus Christ, created the worlds, the laws of physics, the laws of nature, etc.. I do not believe in Evolution for I am a Creationist and I believe in a Theocracy. I will not leave God out of the equations. The Son of God also maintains everything that He has created - here on earth and out there beyond. If God sees that I am fit to be able to be living among His angels in His heavenly kingdom - I have so many questions for Him. And really if the Lord sees someone fit to be able to enter His Kingdom that person can ask Him that very question about the plants and their colors and the waves, etc.. It would be fascinating to get those answers from the very One who created it all in the first place. Of course, sin (transgression - disobedience - of the law of God - those ten commandments) marred the creation from what it was at the beginning before there was sin - but we are able to still see beauty on the earth and beyond. But before I even begin to ask any questions of the Creator - I just want to thank Him for shedding his blood and dying for my sins and saving me from my sins - and learning to depend on Him throughout my life through obedience, trust and faith - in learning through Him how to change my character from the carnal mind and nature of Satan that I am born with to the holiness and purity of His character (His righteousness) to be able to enter His kingdom. Every being has a free agency - and therefore it is a choice to either want to learn to become righteous - or stay wicked - and never see the the heavenly kingdom. And also, if I do make a mistake - I can humbly and sincerely ask Him, the Father, for forgiveness through His Son - from my sinfulness and talk to Him about it - and He knows our very hearts and minds - and throws those sins into the deep blue sea. To paraphrase - the road to heaven is narrow and (compared to the wicked) few will find it - but the highway to hell is broad and many will choose its easy way. Again, it's all choice.
