White-breasted Nuthatch

2 objective realities.

  • God is real! (Heaven and hell too)
  • God is not real! (No heaven and hell)

2 subjective decisions.

  • You believe in God!
  • You do not believe in God!

4 scenarios.

  • If God is real, the man who believes in God will be rewarded in Heaven
  • If God is not real, the man who believes in God has not lost anything.
  • If God is real, the man who does not believe in God is in trouble.
  • If God is not real, the man who does not believe in God has won nothing.

Definitely a white-breasted.

Yeah, that black eyeline is weird for a white-breasted, but it's definitely a white-breasted, just an odd one.

Pretty much a dead give-away on the White-breasted Nuthatch when you see them come down the tree head first.
