Natural or scientific explanations are never the final answers. Though they satisfy the human mind and thus are relative to its curiosity, God in His wisdom has ordered natural laws in such a way that they reveal His awe and absolute truth, thus becoming “wonders of Him who has perfect knowledge” (Book of Job 37:16). Hence, natural phenomena and the beauty of nature become a symbol, i.e. an outward and visible sign of divine goodness and grace in creation.

(Mar Melchizedek)
