Stranger Than Fiction

Scientists have discovered Adam’s grandmother, whom they named “Lucy” and was a approximately one hundred generations removed. What is stranger than fiction, scientists have never discovered Adam’s mother, who would have been about six thousand years old at about the same time Adam appeared on the scene. I think it is safe to say that Adam’s mother will never surface, in fact, he had no mother. Since he had no mother, who then would have been most likely to teach him to read and write.

The plot deepens in mystery. Since the origin of language is not known outside of biblical history, how was it that Adam had no need of a tutor. The strangest mystery of all is how is it we know so much about Lucy, but so little about Adam’s predecessors? The creation story is all about faith and “though I have all knowledge“, without faith it profiteth me nothing. Faith, hope and charity but the greatest of all is charity, without which, no man can see God.

(J. Frank Norris would have opposed any form of the Darwinian evolution).

When 'Parson Johnson' ... from Mississippi ... came to visit the First Baptist Church of FW, he would sing this hymn ... in such a way that it was like a charge of electricity over the whole audience. The rendition by Tennesse Ernie Ford is marvelous but nothing compared to the voice of "Parson Johnson'. ~ Roy Falls

Deep Dark Secret

The deep dark secret the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra would like to forget in their 100th anniversary celebration was the fact that J. Frank Norris and Brooks Morris (Orchestra founder) were best of friends for 28 years ..... Quote Morris: "Dr. Norris was the most honorable man of my acquaintance .... What is most pathetic is that Brooks Morris' name was not even mentioned in the recent Star Telegram write-up ... the Star Telegram did not even give credit to Morris, who not only founded the orchestra, but also directed it for about 30 years ...
