Comments: Three Rules for Happy Living

Don't you mean Mac vs PC? On the other hand, I do prefer granny smiths to macintoshes.

I like mackinaws rather than P.J.s

Going out on a limb with those three positions, eh? Good going!

I applaud you, and (at the risk of being accused of being a "yesman", I tend to agree, somewhat, with the first and second point, and totally agree with point number three.

Point one always makes me think of the pre-modern medicine and the way that life was looked at. Children were valuable only if they could work or produce. Only in this modern age are fetuses (fetii?) given rights in the womb. A mother's rights over her reproductive organs and progeny therein should be only between her, her deity of choice - if she has one- and her doctor. Just my 25 cents. It should not even be an election issue.

Nice blog! I enjoyed it.

Maybeso, Thanks for commenting. I love getting feedback. I see you're a fellow member of the LLP community. A Zen Anarchist, eh? Very interesting.

Owlish, I prefer Fujis. And thanks for pointing that error out. I need to edit my late-night postings better. Should probably just save without publishing and then publish the next day.

ID doesn't proclaim that there is a supernatural creator, yet ID opponents automatically do, why? Because it's easier to reject them out-of-hand.

If one believes, as I do, that the universe is chock full of life, and has been for millenia, is it too much of a strectch to believe that perhaps life was deposited here by an intelligent entity? But see, now I can be dismissed just as easily as a creationist because I dare mention 'aliens'.

One other point. Your definition of evolution is acceptable to many on the creationist and ID side. They all agree that species change over time. What they disagree with is the yet unproved aspects of evolution, namely speciation (the evolving of one species into an entirely different one, like a fish into a lizard) and the idea that life erupted spontaneously from some primordial soup.
