Have you ever wondered why nowhere else in the universe do we find water in any abundance except here on earth? To date all our telescopes and space travellers confirm that. Water, the amazing solvent, dissolves almost everything upon this earth except those that are life sustaining. This amazing liquid which we take for granted exists as ice, breaks ups rocks and produces soil. As snow it stores up water in the valley. As rain, it waters and cleanses the earth. As vapour, it provides moisture for much of the arable land on earth. It exists as cloud cover in just the right amount. If it had clouds like Venus, the earth could not support life. But we have exactly 50% of the surface of the earth covered by clouds at any one time, allowing just the right amount of sunlight to filter through. As steam, for centuries water has run some of the most powerful machinery we have. Other than bismuth it is the only liquid heavier at four degrees Celsius than it is at freezing. If this were not so, life as we know it could not exist on this planet. Therefore when it freezes it is lighter and it rises. If this was not the case our lakes and rivers would freeze from the bottom up and kill all the fish: the algae would be destroyed, oxygen supply would cease and mankind would die. So when you think God doesn’t notice you or care about you (or when you think there is a conflict between science and Christianity – my insertion) drink a glass or water and say Thank you God!
