Clear writing is just about the last thing I enjoy, other than the company of the few remaining people who have not pissed me off.

Dennis Prager: Nature must not be worshipped: Judeo-Christian values, Part XVI: "Why would people who value compassion, kindness or justice venerate nature? The notions of justice and caring for the weak are unique to humanity. In the rest of nature, the weak are to be killed. The individual means nothing in nature; the individual is everything to humans. A hospital, for example, is a profoundly unnatural, indeed antinatural, creation; to expend precious resources on keeping the most frail alive is simply against nature.
The romanticizing of nature, let alone the ascribing of divinity to it, involves ignoring what really happens in nature. "
