TO KNOW THAT GOD 'UNFOLDED' THE UNIVERSE IS TO KNOW THE WISDOM OF ELEPHANTS AND OWLS
Science has not yet figured out if eggs are good or bad for us (they are now said to be good again) but we are to believe that they have determined how life -- how animals -- "evolved." To "evolve" means to unfold. It was God Who unfolded Creation.
To know this is simply to look at everything around you (while praying for those who do not yet know His love).
Contemplate the vastness of the universe. If we can accept the measurements of astronomy, the "largest known structure in the universe" is a group of quasars that is so large it would take four billion years to cross it at the speed of light (186,000 miles a second, if that were possible).
Our God is a vast God. Our God is also a God of intricacy. Left alone, physical matter deteriorates (entropy); so do life forms. Not so with God.
Check out God's handiwork in the camouflage for owls, which seem to be authentic photos, those checked with nature photography sites (and below that, the article on elephants who came to pay respects when a man who spent years helping them recently died). Here's a dog that still attends the church his master did. For our discernment (and wonderment):
SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE THAT IS MUCH GREATER AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE. (status with Snopes: undetermined)
THE ELEPHANT'S JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT, BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?
On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died.
He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons and numerous elephants.
Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs.
Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend.
A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.
Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence's passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way:
Walking slowly - for days - Making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house.

So, how after Anthony’s death, did the reserve’s elephants — grazing miles away in distant parts of the park — know? “A good man died suddenly,” says Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, Ph.D., “and from miles and miles away, two herds of elephants, sensing that they had lost a beloved human friend, moved in a solemn, almost ‘funereal’ procession to make a call on the bereaved family at the deceased man’s home.”
“If there ever were a time, when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart’s stops, and hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.”
Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years!
But yet they knew where they were going.
The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.
Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back!
