French scientists have succeeded in causing chickens to sound like quail. Nancy Ross-Flannigan, writing for the Detroit Free Press, reports that researchers took tissue from parts of the Japanese quail brain thought to control the bird’s call and implanted it in the brains of five chicken embryos. The experiment worked. Researchers say the hatched chicks sounded like quail rather than chickens.

But now the real miracle. God has “implanted” the mind of Christ in those who have accepted His Son as their Savior. The Spirit of God has taken up residence in us (1 Cor. 2:12). In some mysterious way we now have a capacity for divine wisdom that no Ph.D. degree or natural experience could ever provide. Having the mind of Christ enables us to see life increasingly from God’s perspective.
