Crystal Springs Park, Portland, OR, taken today 2-17-13

This guy looks to me like a Greater White Fronted Goose.

But check out his size vs a Canada. Is this right?

Lesser Scaup? I'm thinking Lesser because of the tuft at the back of the head.

The Canada Goose looks like it may have some domestic in it, but I agree with all other IDs.

The first photo does show a GWFG, but, the other is not a Canada Goose. It's a Domestic Swan Goose X Canada, that's why it's so big/.

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.
