Dear Religous Institution / Spiritual Tradition


You never mentioned
or seemed to notice...

That the planet is billions of years old,
That there are atoms or elements,
That we are animals evolved from earlier ones,
until, going back, molecules that encode all life
combined to colonize a world.

How could you be right, except by chance,
About my immortal soul, as you say,
If you didn't know these things?

Is there a forgotten teaching in your tradition?
Or were you just guessing and
accepting the word of your elders,

as I suspected.
