If God had wanted us to fly He would have given us wings, or the mental and physical capacity to conceive and construct mechanical devices that would allow us to fly.

But, but, but the Bible doesn't say anything about flying. Perhaps we shouldn't be trying to do it?

This morning at my parish we sang, "Once to Every Man and Nation". I think it is an interesting commentary on the state of the church generally that we left out the second verse, the one with the uncomfortable lines about "new occasions teach new duties / time makes ancient good uncouth / we must upward still and onward / who would keep abreast of truth."

Then there's the joke from Benny Hill: if God had intended for us to fly, he would have given us tickets!

And yet, and yet, each time my plane speeds up for take-off, I think, "God didn't mean for humans to fly. Let me off!" But it's too late.
