There! There speaks the true fanatic, one that *requires* that God be one
way, *his* way, and no other. A true fanatic cannot even comprehend that
God may have created a *system* of life, not just life, that is ever
changing, ever evolving. Never mind that, the true fanatic cannot even
comprehend that an evolving system of life is a far more beatiful testiment
to God's existence then just some living cells that never change, that
*always* remain the same, no matter what(in other words, not really life at

"...What you have to understand, young lady, is that the Greeks, not
content with dominating the culture of the Classical world, are also
responsible for the greatest, some would say the only, work of true
creative imagination produced this century as well. I refer of course to
the Greek ferry timetables. A work of the sublimest fiction. Anyone who
has travelled the Aegean will confirm this..." Professor Watkin - Dirk
