Ripening blackberries

It never ceases to amaze me how creative God is Genesis 1:11-12,29. Who else would have thought of building a little seed with enough smarts to:

  1. Use the food in fruit to start a plant growing
  2. Take sunlight, dirt, and water, and combine to make a blackberry bush
  3. Exactly when the time is right, the weather is appropriate, and the bush is strong enough, grow some fruit
  4. Make enough plant and fruit to survive the voracious appetities of bugs and animals, birds and bees, and hungry kids
  5. Grow millions of identical seeds to fall to the ground and rot
  6. Repeat
