  But Earth =was= made "by some strange entity" ...what's "Difficult" is Seeing
"Consciousness" and "Volition" in that "strange entity"... but that's where, in
my view, Jesus "comes in"... I'm a Devoted amateur Neuroscientist... to a level
commensurate with the work of Newton in the old Natural Philosophy, I've solved
the nervous system as an information-processing system... I used the best
results that Experiment could produce, and was overjoyed when it all came
together... and when it did, it was flat-out Obvious to me that, 2000 years
ago, long before the Scientific Method was ever a glimmer in Gallilo's mind,
Jesus =Knew= how our nervous systems process information... and it's clear that
His Teaching is Extraordinarily-Loving with respect to such... He was "just"
saying, "Look here, see, this's how you work."

I cannot not say it, He is Correct... it's a real jaw-hanger... and that's
precisely why "The Strange Entity", commensurate only in Faith, has,
never-the-less, won a place in my "Heart". ken (K. P. Collins)
