Know what an acronym is Lee? you are A Simple-Simon Whose Ignorance Progresses Exponentially God IS Lee, not because I say so, not because the Bible says so, but because everything about the Universe which is His Creation says so. Nature teaches us the error of our ways through positive and negative reinforcement. When our industrial waste pollutes the environment and destroys wildlife habitat, Mankind suffers and hopefully learns not to pollute. When we work in harmony with Nature and learn to improve the way we farm through crop rotation and protection of the top soil, we increase the bountiful plenty that Nature provides, and so we benefit. Positive and Negative reinforcement, there for anyone to see, Nature Teaching Us. I am a Taoist, Lee, not a Creationist. The Universe evolves towards Life, through the evolution of the Elemental Form, then towards awareness through the evolution of the Biological Form, and then towards Self-Awareness, and the ability to perceive positive and negative reinforcement while possessing Free-Will, which lesser forms of awareness don't have, and don't need. Through Evolution, this world is Perfect for us, providing for us our every need, that makes it The Garden of Eden, Lee. Through the detrimental use of our Knowledge, we bring detriment to The Garden of Eden, and risk bringing about our own extinction. That amounts to expulsion from the Garden of Eden, Lee. When Eve ate of the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, she was expelled from the Garden of Eden, Lee. Its all there in living color for anyone who's not afraid to look. Knowing about it, improves our chances, sticking our head in the sand because we're too proud to admit we might be wrong, does not. Its all there Lee, for anyone with eyes to see, and no matter how much you rant and rave, there is nothing you can do to change it. :o) Close your mind to it, Close your Heart to it, strut around like the little peacock that you are Lee, you make a real fine picture of a man. A closed minded know-it-all who can't even discuss the issue because he's too afraid he might learn something.
