Out of the Mouths of Babes...

We read in the first two chapters of Paul's letter to the Romans that God's law is written in the hearts of all men.  It seems that Yale University may have proved that.  Their Infant Cognition Center did a study on babies as young as six months.  Their findings lead them to believe that an inate sense of morality may be "hard-wired" in the minds of humans from the earliest moments of existence.

So much for the atheistic, humanistic hypothesis that a baby's mind is a "blank slate".  So how did that sense of right and wrong get there?  Well, let's be honest.  It's there because each and every one of us is created in God's image and likeness.

My colleague at Les Femmes, commenting on the same study, opines that some babies are probably a lot smarter than some bishops.  That idea certainly has a lot of merit.  I've no doubt that the babies are much smarter than what currently sits in the White House these days.
