Nope. You're still missing it. Noone ever said to kill off the whole
species. "Paranoia will destroy ya."

In case you haven't noticed, humans are the only ones from "our source"
which have manipulated "our source" in such ways that are detrimental to
our survival here. I can't imagine rodents or monkeys or birds coming up
with devices which explode and leave residue that will kill and mutate our
species for ...well, for forever.

Again, noone said anything about killing everyone off. Get off that horse

Our history is also that we have killed millions of people for stupid
reasons, poisoned our children, watched from comfy windows while others
starved, etc. Let's see, what can I learn from that? Maybe you are
living in some magical land where everything is hunkey dorey -- the water
is safe to drink, your kids can go out and play any time they want without
danger from other humans, and you can comfortably breathe and believe that
the air is fresh, but I bet the rent is damned high. Noone else can seem
to afford to be able to find the place, much less afford it.

And you'd be wrong. As I keep having to tell you, I'm not for
acceleration of it, but I can imagine it, and I can enjoy doing so.

I don't remember attributing it to just women. I reckon I should just
bail out of this conversation now, since it seems that what I say is
misread, misinterpretted, and obviously seems to scare the shit out of

And once AGAIN, this isn't about wiccans, or xians, or any damned religion
at all. Keep reading between the lines. You're reading stuff I never put

Keep on keeping on isn't gonna get me a taste of that pudding. I'll be

Okay, well I'm glad to see you got my point, despite all the other things
that you read that I never typed. (:
