Your question is the most difficult in the world. It is not a question I can answer simply with yes or no. I am not an Atheist. I do not know if I can define myself as a Pantheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable? The human mind, no matter how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations.

It is computer to err

Recently it was reported in the Guardian that risk of nuclear accidents is rising. Having always been pro nations having these weapons I seriously now wonder whether individual nations should be trusted. Humanity does need these nuclear weapons to protect the Earth from asteroids, comets and possible expansionist aliens. Unfortunately the risk from human/computer error seems to be too great for nations to have these weapons. One could argue that nuclear weapons actually stop world wars. With greater complexity and political insanity comes greater errors that could kill us all. UN could be the only intergovernmental organization to have these weapons to protect the Earth from threats from space. There’s no way that the USA, Russia, China and the EU would give up their weapons to the anemic UN. One can only hope that the Great Filter theory doesn’t become a reality for the Earth.

Dandelions have been blooming away. Always during spring they explode into activity. Dandelions bloom during spring, summer and autumn. If one observes them annually then one will notice that they bloom the most during the spring. Weeds to many when actually extremely beneficial for soil quality. Dandelions like all plants do compete for space and damage lawns which can make them weeds to gardeners and growers. To me the flowers are more attractive than just pure green grass. When seen in the wild they can look awesome.
