27、公鸡打鸣

公鸡打鸣。

The crowing of roosters

我从小生活在农村,对公鸡打鸣有深刻的记忆,尤其当我要起早出门,勤劳慈祥的母亲就根据公鸡打鸣来判断时间,提前做好饭,备好干粮,然后叫醒我。

Since I lived in the countryside when I was young, I remembered very well about the rooster’s crowing. Especially when I had to start out early, my diligent and kind mother would judge the time of day by rooster’s crowing, prepare breakfast and solid food in advance, and then wake me up.

公鸡准时打鸣,每夜三次,第一次大约是夜里三点半钟左右,第二次大概是四点半钟前后,最后一次是凌晨曙光初现上下(请原谅,我已离开家乡二十多年,现在居住区周围听不到鸡叫声,所以我说的时间不一定准确。)

The roosters crow three times each night at regular time intervals. The first crowing is at about half past three in the early morning, the second approximately at half past four, and the last around the dawn (excuse me, the time of crowing may not be accurate because I have been away from my hometown for more than two decades and I am now living in an area where no crowing of roosters can be heard).

有人说,公鸡打鸣的目的是为了告诉其它的公鸡:“这是我的领地,不容侵犯。”

Some people say that roosters’ crowing is to tell other roosters, “This is my territory and do not come in”.

也有人说,公鸡打鸣的目的是为了尽可能多地勾引母鸡。

Some say that roosters crow to attract hens.

我要说,公鸡打鸣是为了报时。

I would say that roosters crow to tell people the time.

在工业文明还没有出现之前,人类没有钟表,人类为了生存,夜里需要知道具体的时间。比如两个人或几个人要到远处打猎,约定鸡叫第二遍时起床,或者一族人要共同完成某项工作,约定鸡叫第三次时在村头集合等。

Prior to industrial civilization, man did not have clocks and watches. For survival, man had to know the time of the night. For example, two or more people were on a hunting trip and set the second crowing as the time to get up. Or a group of people were to complete certain task together and set the third crowing as the time to gather in the end of the village.

公鸡打鸣是不由自主的,它们打鸣完全是其体内生物钟对地球旋转到一定角度时对其磁场磁力波刺激的一种条件反射或感应,它们没有意识到它们打鸣是为了给人类报时,为人类服务,就象人类在地球上生活却没有意识到我们是为上帝服务一样。

Roosters’ crowing is involuntary. It is a conditioned reflex or induction of its biological clock in its body against the stimulation of the magnetic wave of the magnetic field when the earth rotates to a certain angle. The rooster is not aware its crowing is to tell people the time of a day and serve the people, just like us humans who are living on the earth and are not aware that we are serving the Greatest Creator.

公鸡半夜三更打鸣意识不到其打鸣的意义,但是创造公鸡的“人”非常清楚,宇宙中没有无目的的声音,创造公鸡的“人”为了人类生存的方便,就创造了这个奇迹。

The rooster cannot realize the meaning of its crowing late at night, but the “man” who creates the rooster is well aware of the meaning. In the universe there is no sound that does not have a purpose. The “man” that creates rooster does so for the convenience of human’s survival and thus has created this miracle.

若公鸡能意识到自己打鸣的目的,当它们目睹自己的亲朋好友被人类宰杀,它们就不会再给人类打鸣了。若是为了警告同类,霸占领地,它不会半夜里打鸣,它会想到,半夜三更黑灯瞎火谁会来强占我的底盘?我还是把体力和精力留到天亮再与胆敢侵犯者战斗。若是为了勾引更多的母鸡,它也会意识到母鸡们白天还要下蛋,还要忙于孵小鸡、带小鸡,三更半夜不会理睬自己,还是先睡个好觉,养足精神待天亮时再与妻妾情人和“路边的野花”们缠绵吧。

If the roosters can realize the purpose of their crowing, they will stop doing so when they see that many of their friends and relatives have been killed by mankind. If the crowing is to warn others of their own species not to violate their territory, they will not do so late at night, thinking to themselves, “Who will come to invade my territory in such late hours? I’d better conserve my energy and strength till tomorrow and fight off whoever has the nerve to invade my territory”. If the crowing is to attract more hens, the rooster certainly knows that hens will be busy laying eggs and taking care of chicks during the day so they will not pay any attention to him. It would be better if he takes a good rest now and keep his energy for the romances with his wives and “concubines” and mistresses.

所以,公鸡打鸣是无意识的行为,但它们无意识的打鸣却是为有意识的目的服务的,那么,这个有意识的目的是谁安排的?

Therefore, the rooster’s crowing is only automatic behavior, but the rooster’s unintentional crowing is to serve the conscious purposes. Then who designed this purpose?

除了上帝,我们还能认为是谁?

Who but the Greatest Creator?
