Surely you have known one or two farmers off the beaten path and in the travels of life. Thought occurred to me if it was possible to be an atheist farmer. I suppose it is possible, after all, camels can sneak through the eye of a needle.
But realistically, one who can rely on the seasons for crops, who can forecast what dirt will and will not do, what animals can be yoked, when the calves do hind, when the sun appears, how long it will be day, the value of a day’s rest, the pesky varmints that need paid attention to, the industry of labor by hand, you name it, all things pointing to He who upholds all things, yep the times and the seasons are His. God plays no tricks with His creation. He is good like that.
Some fools think farmers are simpletons. Really, you going with that? Some have knowledge of language, hydrology, literature, astronomy, economics, agriculture of course, botany, roofing obviously, plumbing, masonry, how to tan a hide or sew a button, on and on and on, and of course, scripture, which all speaks and sings the same tune of truth. Farmers be no dopes.
Kinda hard to be an atheist farmer. I never met one. If you are one, I suppose that would be a freak of nature. Of course you can broaden the idea, and consider if ANY person can sanefully be an atheist, but that requires a quantum leap in which a good man has no legs.
Soooo, have you ever met an atheist farmer? Geez, I wonder why……. Then again, I know why.
