 Magnificent, Dave

Comment by James Bertam Heaton yesterday

 Antony, I don't know how this will go over with you but for the sake of a good debate , what if we were to say that man kind in the begging used that word "God" as a metaphor for the word energy. Would that still mean that trees don't need   god? I feel that I come from the same place trees come from and for that matter everything else to. What do you think ? 

Comment by Antony Van der Mude yesterday

I notice a lot of the tree pictures are actually pictures of trees trying to reclaim their sovereignty over human encroachment. Good for them!

These tress don't need God - they are a power unto themselves. We must respect that and limit our own hegemony to the human sphere and let trees be trees,.

"must be creation and God"?

Comment by David William Kiebert on Sunday

Some of the "comments" on the Trees web site are unfortunate; "must have been created by God," etc. But the photos speak for themselves.

Amazing video of a lovebird making itself a bigger tail with paper feathers it crafts itself.

Walt,

Thanks for the meditation links. Also, I read Stephen Batchelor's book "Buddhism without Beliefs" and I liked his skeptical approach, especially about how a doctrine of "no self" can be consistent with a doctrine of "rebirth". I also like his emphasis on the role of imagination in liberation. However, his ideas about "deep agnosticism" (or words to that effect" left me a little unsatisfied.
