C.S. Lewis is a wonderful example of where pure reasoning, without any corresponding investigation of the physical world, can lead the human intellect. His thoughts and insights, though highly imaginative and often beautifully expressed, were closer to those of medieval clerics debating the nature of the universe than to modern scientific means of determining how things work and how things are put together. If one is interested in the nature of our spiritual relationships, in ethics and morality, or whether pure faith is sufficient reason to accept the existence of God, or whether Jesus of Nazareth was, in fact, God incarnate, by all means read C.S. Lewis. I especially enjoyed reading the Screwtape Letters when I was an undergraduate. But if one is interested in understanding how living cells divide and replicate, how organ systems function in maintaining whole living orgamisms, and whether nature is constantly experimenting, and whether or not we ourselves are the result of a lengthy process of trial and error, Lewis will not be particularly useful.

"If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents - the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else's. But if their thoughts - i.e., of Materialism and Astronomy - are merely accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It's like expecting that the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk-jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset." - C.S. Lewis

Another proof of nature's imperfection is the constant bickering between the human species. *rolls eyes* As for the picture, i love the contrast. The lighting is decent too. :)

What a petulant little man you are Potato! Mcrbarreto was clearly referring to the pristine landscape and the beauty and vitality of the white stallion or mare enjoying the feel of the sand as it gathers speed in its trot. So back off lest a maggot gives you a flick up your left nostril. I note also from the diverse comments on your name page. You really are a wacko of a living entity. I am not really sure if you are human. For if you are 'it' is certainly an insult to the whole human race.

Perfect? Then how do you explain spinal bifida, orofacial clefts (cleft lips, cleft palates),anencephaly ( look it up ), mongolism, siamese twins, dwarfism and other birth defects ?

Nature is beautiful and perfect in everything it does.
