As I was driving out of my driveway this morning, I notice something in someone's yard that looked like a pelican. Upon closer examination, I realized it wasn't. It reminded me of how we humans have an protective instinct to interpret things as living things in case it is a threat. This evolutionary trait has caused us to think there is a God even when there isn't.

I am not sure, but I think it was a garden hose roll up spindle with a rag on it.
