   Re: [xml-dev] Rigged Aggregators?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Intelligence and Design are opposites... Design implies control and
anything with intelligence understands that our universe exists in a
constant state of chaos.  We of course spend our lives making attempts
at controlling the chaos around us but the more advanced of a society
we become the more we discover the secrets of nature.  Nature lives
quite well in a state of constant chaos so as we inch our intelligence
closer and closer to the levels of nature we will eventually come to
simply accept that we can not control, only accept. And its when we
reach that level of chaotic acceptance that we will finally understand
what God meant by free will. Free will IS Chaos which brings us right
back to where we started in the first place... Guess thats where
eternity comes in to play ;)
