Ah, I knew I could count on you for a reasonable response instead of the insults another poster hurled at me earlier. :-)

"I knew I could count on you for a reasonable response instead of the insults another poster hurled at me earlier."

These threads are like watching "The Dark Crystal". A single creature, so torn by internal division that it actually separated. In fact, a whole race of such creatures.

The two halves of discussion here are like those beings; we have a curious, inquisitive nature, and we naturally gravitate to inspecting and investigating things and phenomena.

At the same time, we have immense fears, urging us to back away from the unknown. Truly we are torn.

So some of us satisfy our curiosity through the investigations of science, and some of us take respite and comfort from the perpetual unknowns by relaxing with a good book.
