Message-ID: <> Date: 8 Aug 91 13:58:02 GMT Sender: (Network News) Organization: Kingston Polytechnic Lines: 37 Nntp-Posting-Host: tethys All things dull and u-g-ly, all creatures short and squat. All things rude and nasty; the Lord God made the lot. Each little snake that poisons, each little wasp that stings; He made their brutish venoms, He made their horrid wings. All thing scabbed and ulcerous, all evil great and small. All things foul and dangerous; the Lord God made them all. Each nasty little hornet, each beastly little squid; Who made the spikey urchin? Who made the sharks? HE DID! All things sick and cankerous, all pox both great and small, Putrid, foul, and gangrenous; the Lord God made them all. Amen. (Monty Python) It's true, though, isn't it? We can't manufacture poisonous or dangerous fauna and flora. Up until recently, pestilence, famine, volcanoes, and earthquakes were a bit beyond us too. And who made the snake in the Garden of Eden? While mankind must take the blame for many of the nasty things that happen in the World, a great many others must be attributed elsewhere; to pure chance and and natural law in my case, but, if you believe in an omnipotent God, then responsibility and blame must be laid at his door. A door which usually has 'God of Love and Mercy' on it in large letters. ////////////////////////////////////////|\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ | | | | | Lukin Brewer | | A wise old owl lived in an oak, | Applied Chemistry student | | The more he farted, the less he spoke. | At Kingston Polytechnic | | The less he spoke, the more he farted, | Kingston-upon-Thames, England | | He wished he'd never even started. | | | | CH_A077@Titan.King.Ac.UK | | | | \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\|////////////////////////////////
