Theology Journal: The Wright Brothers Anniversary

All Hail the Wright Brothers! Today is the 100th anniversary of a day over which I've been in awe my entire life.

Why am I including this under my "Theology Journal" heading? Probably because I think it reflects on God that God would create such beings that would decide to go ahead and aspire to the blatantly impossible.

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving, how express and admirable in action, how like an angel in apprehension, how like a god!
Hamlet II.ii. 303-307 [liberally lifted from context]
