Water in Copious Quantities

If we gauge how much water passes a given wide point of a river like the Amazon or the Nile in one second, we’ll probably estimate it’s thousands of gallons or more. If we go on multiplying we’ll come up with a staggering number of gallons of water that must fill only one river. And there are hundreds of rivers on the planet, many of them large and long. This water flows to seas and oceans and there, and in the rivers themselves, the sun evaporates the water, returns it as rain and snow, which flows into rivers and so the cycle continues, ad infinitum. This is only one of the many astonishing aspects of creation – astonishing, in that it is acintya, or an inconceivable divine energy, beyond our most puny comprehension.
