At our peril








Few things in this world are black and white, except magpies.

  4. Oh, I couldn't agree more on this. Our peril is already signed, sealed, and soon to be delivered too, I feel. Well said!

  5. Your well-compressed bit is well-written and really fits the image. Yet I believe we've been called to "tinker" with earth; that the plants and animals and minerals are there for us to use carefully, for God's glory. Without what's called the green revolution in agriculture, I don't think the earth could sustain as many people as it does currently.

    1. Thanks Jim for visiting. Your comments are always welcome and this one offers the opportunity to ask: "If we mine, deforest, wipe out species and pollute basically so we can feed more people for now, where do we stop? How many more billions is OK? If the answer is 'It is all in God's plan for us', God help us!

    2. The millions who live on a dollar a day - is God's Earth really sustaining them. Good you make us think, Stafford.

  11. God gave man responsibility, and as you point out man hasn't behaved very responsibly. unfortunately that applies to both sides of the issue.

  13. Good one mate, it just dawned on me that its blue from outer space because its mostly water, which makes us on land even less significant ! The wales and dolphins have no doubt seen all this s**t before !
