I challenge the definition of “natural” itself. It is not natural to have a wasp inject its eggs into a caterpillar and have the larvae eat the caterpillar alive from the inside out. It is a supernatural spectacle wholly out of alignment with ordinary human values, much less spiritual ones. And yet that’s what Darwin observed. And that’s the nature you bow before with unthinking allegiance.
Hey, pixiedust! You are a fucking idiot. Nature is not natural because it is “out of alignment with ordinary human values.” What a load of crap!
I was at the marina in Santa Cruz having carne asada outdoors with my wife and my dog; shirtsleeve weather; Monterey Bay uncharacteristically blue; lunching outdoors at the edge of the sand; very “natural.” Along came a guy with such a severe neurological disorder that he had to cling to an aluminum appliance as he lurched down the walkway to keep from falling on his face.
I’m glad you weren’t there to tell him that his condition was unnatural because it was “out of alignment with ordinary human values,” because after he was done beating you with his walker, I would have gotten up and started clubbing you with a chair and then my dog would have pee’d on you.
What an asshole. Do you know anything about nature and life? Don’t answer that. You don’t. I’m not interested in any of your idiotic ramblings.
