The eye of the understanding is like the eye of the sense;
for as you may see great objects through small crannies or holes,
so you may see great axioms of nature through small and contemptible instances.
-Francis Bacon, essayist, philosopher, and statesman (1561-1626)

Nothing to kill or die for
and no religion too . . . .
What to Twitter to get attention....

We must respect the other fellow's religion,
but only in the same sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.
