I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.–Albert Einstein

Such is the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. It’s all about playing God, about developing godlike powers. It’s also about refusing to be limited by the world around us. We have the ability to limit our destructive power and often we do not. We have the ability to limit our population but we simply refuse. I don’t know whether we will survive either of these choices.

Of course it’s all Eve’s fault (because men wrote the story), or it’s the serpent’s fault for tempting us. And that’s the problem, we haven’t learned to take responsibility for our choices and actions. We’ll get what we get which may or my not be what we deserve.

Hope still exists for us, as do faith, love and wisdom. They are part of who we are even when we do not use them.
