Hi tenacious,

You understood the post very well, however, you over simplify Self-Serving, Self Interest so that it equates to what is natural in the animal kingdom. Animals do not destroy other species` habitat to put up strip malls nor do they kill one another in a vain attempt to acquire each other`s sexual prowess. As you say, we can perceive future plausibilities, and this gives us Choices as to how to approach the future. If we do not give appropriate consideration to All species of Life in how we approach the future, we will pay the consequences. Both the beneficial and the detrimental consequences are Predetermined. Whether we suffer detrimental consequences as a result of destroying the natural order in deference to our own, or learn the error of our ways so that we can benefit from the consequences of promoting Nature`s Bountiful Plenty, IS a matter of Free-Will. The choice IS ours to make, nothing, and no one, will determine the path we choose, but we ourselves. God guides us through Positive/Negative Reinforcement, but the final decisions are ours alone.
