I simply believe in an order to the Universe, I have no clue how the order is achieved, nor does anyone else.

I do know that I have an an absolute aversion to organized religion which is completely different than an aversion to a god.

From what I can tell the American Indians and the Buddhists have got the best grip on what is going on. They both seem to see that we are a part of a natural order and things work best when we flow with that order instead of making arbitrary rules to define segmentation of societies.

In other words, we are better off listening to Mother Nature and just STFU. No need for intermediaries with white shoes, funny hats, TV shows or gold chains. Cut out the multi-billion dollar's worth of buildings and just focus on doing what is in harmony with nature. Everything else will take care of itself.

In a word [or song], yes. [though I think I would recommend firing most of the folks who are costing her $730K monthly]

Well, I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, 'Tell where are you going?'
This he told me
Said, 'I¹m going down to Yasgur's Farm,
Gonna join in a rock and roll band.
Got to get back to the land and set my soul free.'
We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion year old carbon,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
'Well, then can I walk beside you?
I have come to lose the smog,
And I feel like I'm a cog in something turning.
And maybe it's the time of year,
Yes and maybe it's the time of man.
And I don't know who I am,
But life is for learning.'
We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion year old carbon.
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion year old carbon.
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
By the time we got to Woodstock,
We were half a million strong
And everywhere was a song and a celebration.
And I dreamed I saw the bomber death planes
Riding shotgun in the sky,
Turning into butterflies
Above our nation.
We are stardust, we are golden,
We caught in the devil's bargain,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

Kentucky
