VATICAN CITY, OCT 23, 1996 (VIS) - In a Message made public today to the members of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, meeting this week in the Vatican in plenary session, the Holy Father recalled that Pope Pius XI, who restored this academy in 1936, called this group of scholars "the Church's 'scientific senate'" and asked them "to serve the truth."
"'Humani Generis'," he stated, "considered the doctrine of 'evolutionism' as a serious hypothesis, worthy of a more deeply studied investigation and reflection on a par with the opposite hypothesis. ... Today, more than a half century after this encyclical, new knowledge leads us to recognize in the theory of evolution more than a hypothesis. ... The convergence, neither sought nor induced, of results of work done independently one from the other, constitutes in itself a significant argument in favor of this theory."
In conversation with V. I. Arnold, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (March 1998), Pope John Paul II recognized that science alone is able to determine the truth, whereas religion, in the words of the pontificate, sees itself as better suited to evaluate the possible uses of new discoveries.
(From a Letter of the Russian Academy of Sciences to V. Putin published in Kentavr, No. 3, pp. 1-2 (a popular-science supplement to Novaya Gazeta).[Russian version]
Pitiless indifference is an intrinsic part of the science of evolution
Here are some quotations from Peter Singer from his books Rethinking Life and Death and Writings on an Ethical Life.On how mothers should be permitted to kill their offspring until the age of 28 days: "My colleague Helga Kuhse and I suggest that a period of twenty-eight days after birth might be allowed before an infant is accepted as having the same right to life as others." Brahmins also treat their own children as untouchable. Brahmin mothers don't touch their own children and brahmin mothers also don't love their children. What a horrible people these Brahmins are.
Indeed, A. Hitler was their Apostle.
NY: Jewish, Christian Leaders Against 41% Abortion Rate
The Athenian orator Isokrates (4th century BC) observed: “On a visit to Egypt Pythagoras became a student of the religion of the people.” That explains why for Giordano Bruno, the Copernican heliocentrism was the proof of superiority of Egyptian religion over Christianity. In the Coptic papyri purchased by baron von Rabenau and published in 1910 by Ernest von der Planitz (Der Benanbrief”) Jesus is described as a disciple studying the art of healing and astronomy at Anu-Heliopolis. According to the Babylonian Gemara, in Egypt Jesus lernt how to charm diseases and other magic acts. The visit of the three magi described in the Gospel foreshadowed this activity. Interestingly, the term magisterium has double meaning, the Church doctrine and philosopher’s stone.
Giordano Bruno called the Jews ’such a pestilential, leprous, and publicly dangerous race that they deserved to be rooted out and destroyed even before their birth.’ (Giordano Bruno, Spacio della Bestis Trionfante (1584). … engforum.pravda.ru/showthread.php?173959-Jews-ashamed... - Cached
The pastoral letter of 1936 by the Roman Catholic Primate of Poland August Cardinal Hlond.made the grave pronouncement that “there will be the Jewish problem as long as the Jews remain.” Stating the “fact that the Jews deceive, levy interest, and are pimps,” the letter accused the Jews of “fighting against the Catholic Church, persisting in free thinking,” and being “the vanguard of godlessness, Bolshevism, and subversion. A. Rosenberg called the Old Testament Tales of Pimps.”James Carroll, “The Silence,” The New Yorker, 7 April 1997, p. 57).
On Feb. 9, 1989, A. Sakharov traveled to Italy where he spent more than an hour in private audience with the Pope and received an honorary doctorate in astronomy from the University of Bologna. Rector of the University said on this occasion: “Not by chance has he (Sakharov) been placed in the company of Copernicus, of Galileo and of Giordano Bruno. Not by chance is the book chosen for the laureation of A. Sakharov The Dialogue of the Two Greatest Systems by Galileo: a choice meant to recall the spirit of liberty…
The book Art of the Living Word published by Card. K. Wojtyla in Rome in 1975 has in its subtitle the word “Magic”. Why? G. Bruno, magician, philosopher and poet, who embraced Copernican heliocentrism and rejected Christianity altogether, proclaimed that Judaism and Christianity had corrupted the true religion, the religion of ancient Egypt, by which he meant the mysticism and magic of the Hermetica
From G. C. Vanini to Ch. Darwin
The first out-and-out Italian libertine (atheist) was Giulio Cesare Vanini , who in effect demolished the supernatural in religion, leaving no room for belief in the immortality of the soul or in the existence of a personal God, and exalting, like Freud, the role of the passions, especially the libido, which he saw as legitimately permitted to vent itself in previously prohibited acts. Equating man with other animals, Vanini taught that both were products of nature, arriving at the pre-Darwinian thesis that man was descended from the apes.
The last sentence of The Origin of Species, first edition, 1859: "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."
But this sentence of all the editions of his magnum opus bar the first was corrected to read:
"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved."
The world-famous Darwinist, S.J. Gould, finding himself between the proverbial Scylla and Charybdis, in his article What Does the Dreaded “E” Word Mean Anyway? (See, his book I Have Landed. Harmony Books. 2002) had chosen the papal way of dealing with such annoying situations; he simply censored away the troubling part of Darwin's last sentence and and quoted the last two lines:
Darwin ends his book: “Whilst this planet has gone cycling according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.” (244) And then felt entitled to read into these lines what Darwin never meant:
Darwin in his closing passage, identified the primary phenomenon of planetary physics as dull and simple cycling to nowhere, in sharp contrast with life's history, depicted as a dynamic and upwardly growing tree (Cp. Newton's vegetable force!). The earth revolves in uninteresting sameness, but life evolves by unfolding its potential for ever-expanding diversity along admittedly unpredictable, but wonderfully various branchings. Let me add, that these “branchings” belong to the Mythic Tree of Life, which inspired Aristotle concept of matter.
Could Darwin have considered the heliocentric scheme of the Universe as “dull and and simple cycling to nowhere?” Carl L. Becker in his the Heavenly City of the Eighteenth-Century Philosophers (New Haven & London Yale University Press. 1932; 57) wrote:
Newton did not doubt that the heavens declare the glory of God; but he was concerned to find out, by looking through a telescope and doing a sum in mathematics,precisely how they managed it. He discovered that every particle of matter, whether in the heavens or elsewhere, behaved as if it attracted every other article with a force proportional to the product of the masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance. This was a new kind of “law of nature”. Formerly, as the editor of the second edition of the Principia tells us, philosophers were “employed in giving names to things, and in searching into things themselves.” Newton himself noted the difference by saying: “These Principles I consider not as occult Qualities, supposed to result from the specific Forms of Things, but as general Laws of Nature, by which the Things themselves are form'd. This was the new way to knowledge opened up by “natural philosophy:” to search into thing themselves,” and then to formulate the the General Laws of nature by which the Things themselves are form'd.” Newton's Third Law, “Every action has a reaction” was taken from Upanishads. Prof. Hagai Netzer, a secular physicist at Tel Aviv University keeps repeating “God is beyond the natural laws. We are talking about the laws of nature, and there is no connection between them and religion.”
As you may recall, R. Pirsig the world famous author in his novel about Zen and maintenance of his Harley Davidson observed: “Before the beginning of the earth, before the primal generation of anything, the law of gravity existed, sitting there, having no mass of its own. We believe the disembodies words of Sir I. Newton were sitting in the middle of nowhere billions of years before he was born and that magically he discovered these words. They were always there, even when they applied to nothing. Gradually, the world came into being and then they applied to it. In fact, these words themselves were what formed the world!” Let me point out that similar logic induced the evangelist John to have called his God Logos (i.e. Word).It comes as no surprise then that the world-famous physicist specializing in gnosis of black holes wrote as boldly as J. Kepler did long before him:
In his A Brief History of Time (1988), Hawking made the bold claim that once a unified theory of physics was successfully worked out, "it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason -- for then we would know the mind of God." It was Kepler's dream that never came true. He hoped that:
“Man's ability to understand the mathematical laws governing the universe enabled him to mirror God's own thoughts and put him in a special contact (mystical union) with the Creator of the Universe.” Prophet Isaiah warned: “For my thought are not as your thought, neither are your ways my ways...” (55.8-9). But who would pay attention to the warnings of such a simpleton as a “tribal prophet” of Israel?
The politically correct science of the “King of Queens” (as Prof. Gould identified himself) reverberates in the exhibit of 2005 at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City; when quoting Darwin on the origin of life, it left out the part about the Creator. The ehibit quoted from the first edition of The Origin of Species instead of the commonly available sixth edition. Customarily for scholarly purposes, the author's final text would be quoted. In this case quoting from the first edition actually gave a more accurate view of the author's thinking, and politically correct one.
Now the Black Holes expert felt emboldened enough to commit his deicide crime challenging not only the tribal prophets of Israel, but the Holy Father Himself who seems not to know who created the Universe. In his latest book The Grand Design Hawking wrote boldly:
“Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,”(S. Hawking, God was not needed to create the universe, The Jerusalem Post, 03-09-2010)
Is Prof. S. Hawking a crypto-marxist like the famous Bolshevik poet Dem'ian Bednyi who in his poem Communist Mareilaise incited the masses:
Ye workers, now smash to pulp
With your fists that phantom, God!
You are masters of the fate of the world!
Giordano Bruno was burnt at the stake by the Church in February 1600 for heresy, immoral conduct, and blasphemy. G. Bruno was another Italian libertine.

Not so long ago, the Left Party was hailed as a radical new force that would give a voice to millions of people who felt the country was no longer delivering social justice. But it has failed to build on its early success. Its charismatic founders have retired, its new leadership is weak and it is beset by in-fighting.
When Germany's Left Party was founded in 2007, it looked destined to shake up Germany with a radical, populist social agenda that rapidly won support and shifted the entire political spectrum to the left -- even Chancellor Merkel's conservatives adopted shades of pink.

Anyway, Prof S.. Hawking turned Sir. I. Newton's General Laws of Nature, or his “disembodied words sitting in the middle of nowhere” into spontaneous creation which brought him into the neighborhood of the Intelligent Design People. That explains the title of his book The Grand Design. The Masons call their god Mr. G, which, most likely, stands for Gravity rather than Geometry. In ecumenical conformity with the divine Plato (Recall, the perennial 'Cambridge Platonists') prof. Hawking could say that Gravity eternally geometrizes. In fact, in Old English the term 'masonry' meant Geometry. Dogma of spontaneous creation of something out of nothing is the basic creed of the Hindu Religion which proclaims since immemorial time that being emerges in the context of non-being which explains why things are full of emptiness. It was no accident that the Aryan math invented the number 'zero'. If you could smuggle into your 1-dollar bill nine or more additional zeroes you would become as rich as the god Brahma who evolved from a plant.
In conformity with this vision of the world as a evolutionary Tree of Life Manu wrote: "Man will traverse the universe, gradually ascending, and passing through the rocks, the plants, the worms, insects, fish, serpents, tortoises, wild animals, cattle, and higher animals. . . . Such is the inferior degree"
"These are the transformations declared, from the plant up to Brahma, which have to take place in this world" (Book I, sloka 8). The Nordic counterpart of the Hindu Tree of Life was called Yggdrasil.
In Darwin's book “cycling of the earth according to the fixed law of gravity” is followed up by evolution of endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful...” In the Aryan solar mythology the movements of the earth are the cause of evolutionary changes.
In the "Serpent-Mantra,"* the Brahmana declares as follows: that this Mantra is that one which was seen by the Queen of the Serpents, Sarpa-rajni; because the earth (iyam) is the Queen of the Serpents, as she is the mother and queen of all that moves (sarpat). In the beginning she (the earth) was but one head (round), without hair (bald), i.e. without vegetation. She then perceived this Mantra which confers upon him who knows it, the power of assuming any form which he might desire. She "pronounced the Mantra," i.e., sacrificed to the gods; and, in consequence, immediately obtained a motley appearance; she became variegated, and able to produce any form she might like, changing one form into another. This Mantra begins with the words: "Ayam gauh pris'nir akramit" (x., 189). Cp. The Italian saying, La donna e mobile est. G. Bruno stressed that “Nature's imperfect is doubtful to no man. The reason is clear; she is only a woman.” For scholastic philosophers woman was animal occasionatus...Mulieres non esse homines.
The British scholastic philosopher Bishop R. Grosseteste, of Oxford argued, “The earth is named Cybele, from the cube, that is from solidity; because the earth is the most greatly compressed of all bodies, that is, Cybele the mother of all gods; it is possible for the lumière of any sphere you please to be drawn forth from the earth into act and operation; and so whatever god you wish will be born of the earth as if of some mother.”
Spenser in his Fairy Queen prays to the God of the Hebrew Bible do defend him against, what he calls, goddess Mutability i.e. the Aryan sarpa rajni (the queen of all that moves)
Then gin I think on that which Nature said
Of that same time when no more change shall be.
But steadfast rest of all things, firmly stay’d
Upon the pillars of eternity.
That is contrare to mutability:
For all that moveth doth in change delight:
But henceforth all shall rest eternally
With him that is God of Sabaoth high.
O, that great Sabaoth God, grant me that Sabbath’s sight.
Spenser invoked the Biblical God of geocentrism against the Aryan solar deity which was always believed to be immovable:
"Vishnu in the form of the Solar active energy, neither ever rises nor sets, and is at once, the sevenfold Sun and distinct from it," says Vishnu Purana (Book II., Chap. 1 1). Shiva in his symbol linga is referred to as as fixed or immovable (dhruva). Shiva is worshiped in the form of the linga, in the center of the temple, or inner shrine. The cave temple of Elephanta (6th century) and the rock-cut temple of Ellura (8th century) are perfect examples. A baboon, believed to have revealed mathematics, depicted with an erected penis was a divinity in ancient Egypt. The god Min (Cp. the name minim) was. modeled on it.
The same Aryan heliocentric logic was used by Copernicus as a religious(!) proof of his heliocentrism: “we conceive immobility to be nobler and more divine that mutability and instability, which latter is therefore more appropriate to the earth than to the universe. I add to this that it would seem quite absurd to attribute motion to that which contains and locates, rather than to that which is contained and located – namely, the earth.”
The identification of the sun with Aryan linga by Copernicus is confirmed by his expression “family of stars” which is ruled by his sun god seated on the royal throne. (Bk 1,10)
Now, let me explain why the last sentence of Darwin's book inspired one of the greatest Polish poets C.K. Norwid with his poem titled Then, the Sphinx Called Science.
The identity of Darwin's Creator who breathed several powers into a few form or into one was immediately obvious for the Polish poet who, living in Paris, was well aware of the French and then European obsession with things Egyptian in the wake of Napoleon's intrusion into Egypt with an army of French scientists.
The ancient Egyptian symbol for “plant” meaning “Tree of Life” was three sacred lotus lilies. They have three stems curving to the left as though blown into life by the breath of Hu*, the Celestial Sphinx. On top of each stem is the Lotus flower which was used in Ancient Egypt to represent Life and Resurrection. It is from this hieroglyph that the “fleur-de-lis” which is frequently found in Ancient Egyptian Art traces its origin. We see such fleur-de- lis over the head of the statue of Baal unearthed at Megiddo.
The glyph which denotes the sacred knowledge associated with Hu is also formed by the three stems of the three sacred lotus lilies. The Osiris Crown can be similarly considered in these terms. Following the role model of Osiris, in 1346 AD Edward the Black Prince won three feathers at Crecy which he adopted as him emblem. If the three feathers are gathered at the stems a fleur-de-lis is created.
*A "hawk on a standard" is an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph for "God". The phonics of the hieroglyphs sound out the pronunciation of the pictogram of the God Hu. Technically he is called Hu Hu as it is a double utterance.(Cp. Santa Claus Hohohing!)
As the Celestial Sphinx continues to expel his breath of life, Hhhhhhooooooo, the heavens are progressively created. The Celestial Sphinx is the Creator and Architect of the Universe. The Celestial Sphinx is God and the ancient name for God was Hu.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (John 1 v 1,2)
*In the beginning was the Word, Hhhhhhooooooo,
* and the Word was with God, who was the Celestial Sphinx named Hu by the remote Ancient Egyptians,
*and the Word was God. Hhhhhhooooooo.
Clearly "Hhhhhhooooo" or "Hu" is the Word or utterance which means "God".
Osiris, in his earliest Axis Mundi form of a tamarisk tree trunk, was called Djed. His later mummy wrappings were symbolic of his having been encased inside a tree trunk. His mummy was therefore an Axis Mundi ... as indeed were all future mummies. Over time the tree trunk was replaced by the imagery of a pillar which became known as the Djed Pillar, the Pillar of Stability (Cp. the symbolism of Obelisk in 2001: The Cosmic Odyssey). Osiris became the Axis Munde around which the heavens appear to revolve; he became the World Pillar, the link between the terrestrial and celestial worlds. Let me add here that two other names for Osiris are Bel and Hu. Now we better understand what Darwin meant by his “Little Worm Pond;” It was a lab of the Celestial Sphinx or sun god Osiris (Baal, Hu – in Japanese language the sun is called He) in which "The first germ of life was developed by water and heat" (Manu, book I, sloka 8).
In ancient Egyptian texts it is written of the Tree of Life, "I am the plant which comes from Nu." The Tree of Life grew out of the Sacred Mound, it's branches reaching out and supporting the star and planet studded sky, while it's roots reached down into the watery abyss of the Netherworld. The trunk of the Tree of Life represented the World Pillar or Axis Munde (literally "Axis of the Mound") around which the heavens appeared to revolve. The World Pillar was the centre of the universe.This Osiris Pillar now stands in front the the St. Peter' Church in Rome.
Zax (Sax, Sakh, Sakko, S'akra) is the Sumerian origin of the name "Zeus" of the Greeks. Indra is methaphysically Indha (αϊθων) a “Kindler”). Heraclitus had a lofty vision of Fire when he described it as the basic stuff the world is made of, meaning “the purest and brightest sort that is as of the eternal and divine thunderbolt. Heraclitus was an Einstein of antiquity; his equivalency of energy (Brahma, Logos) and things matches Einstein’s equivalency of energy and matter as expressed in his famous equation E=mc². The Bible refers to such philosophy as ‘esh zara” (alien fire, Lev. 9:1-11:47), the usual phrase for idolatry. Akhenaten's Aten (Wotan) transforms “fluid” into children (Recall The Darwin “waterbabies”)
The Greeks originally had no word for matter in general, as opposed to raw material suitable for some specific purpose or other, so Aristotle adopted the word for lumber (Hyle) for this purpose. The idea that everything physical is made of the same basic substance holds up well under modern science, although it may be thought of more in terms of energy or matter/energy. the original meaning of hyle ( Homer's 'υλή) is “wood,” in the sense of “grove” or “forest”, and hence, derivately,”wood cut down” or timber. The Latin materia,, as opposed to lignum (wood used for fuel), has also meaning of timber for building purposes.
C.K. Norwid knew, of course, that in the ancient Slavic mythology there was a widespread belief in the so-called leszi i.e. children born without father or mother in the thickness of a forest. The term leszi is derived from the word lyes ( las) denoting a forest in most Slavic languages. Spontaneous (or Chance) Generation also referred to as abiogenesis, is the theory that living things arise de novo without living parents from lifeless matter. The attempt of the ancients and medievals to explain the origin of lower forms of life from natural causes, rather than attributing it directly to a supermundane or divine power, was scientifically respectable.(Aquinas). Pliny wrote: “We are so much at the mercy of Chance that Chance is our god”. Indeed, in ancient Greece, Tyche or Chance was not merely believed in but worshiped alongside the other gods and goddesses. The two greatest historians of antiquity, Thucidides and Polybius, took chance (with a small 'c') as a cardinal element for historical analysis; Plato and Aristotle, taking an ultimately theological view of the universe, equated chance with all that did not belong to the directly purposive act of god and man, that is, in effect, with physical law (like prof. Hagai Netzer). St. Thomas Aquinas believed in abiogenesis.
The followers of Jesus, like the Qumran sectarians and like the Pythagorean heliocentrists before them, styled themselves “the sons of light”. Those who spring from a “fountain of light” like Noah mentioned in the Genesis Apocryphon (1 Qap-Gen) do not have natural fathers. They live eternally like Melchizedek described in 11 Qmelchizedek. Accordingly, we learn from Heb 7:1-3 that He is without father or mother or genealogy, and has neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God, he continues a priest forever.” In Qumran, and later in the Christian writings the title “Son of God” functioned exactly like in the Graeco-Hellenistic world, as a term denoting a nature. In the Hebrew Scriptures it was used only on isolated occasions for Israel’s king and the whole people. Not so Jesus; in the Gospel of Matthew 9:12 he said, that he “has come” into the world, not that he was born. “No man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven.” Jesus spoke like Empedocles who studied for a while with the Pythagoreans. I.Newton regarded Jesus as an apostle of Pythagoras. And, accordingly, believed that gravity was the spiritual body of Jesus Christ.
In an official prayer of Avalokiteshvara, who emanated from the right eye of his spiritual father, Buddha Amitabha is described as a puer aeternus (cp. Baby Jesus): “Generated from ten million rays his body is completely white (the favoured race of the Romans and of Darwin; cp White Man's Burden and Queen Elizabeth I' shining face). His head is adorned and his locks reach down to his breast”. According to Aquinas, the active part of the semen (the animal spirit) remains until the generative process is completed. This part also obtains heat from the sun, confirming the claim of Aristotle, that “man is generated by man and the sun.” Coperncius pictures the sun in his book (Revol. I,10) as All Seeing Being, Visible God and mentions the stars as his “family” according to the classical definition of the sun as Father of All.http://www.oneyearbibleblog.com/2008/04/april-1st-on...:

Russian president abolishes federal agencies for science and education
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree abolishing the federal agencies for science and education and giving their functions to the Ministry of Education and Science, the Kremlin press service said on Saturday. It was the Ministry of Education and Science which introduced to public schools the anti-Darwinist book, In the Minds of Men. Darwin and the New World Order by Ian Taylor.(06/03/201018:03 RIA Novosti)
Charles Darwin's uncle, factory owner Josiah Wedgewood, owned a business that worked White Children of five years of age in a chemical factory permeated with Lead Oxide, a deadly poison. Wedgewood acknowledged that the lead made the children “very subject to disease” but worked them anyway in the struggle for survival. In The Acting Person, Wojtyla is not considering, philosophically, every member of the human family as a full person. The person for Wojtyla is a conscious, rational, and responsible human being. Young children, senile adults, and the mentally incompetent are not able to act fully as persons.
Parishes discovered that they could “apprentice” even very small children to the new factories and get rid of the cost of caring for them. If their parents were on relief, the children were taken from them and carted off to the factories. Parishes sometimes stipulated the proportion of idiot children the manufacturer would accept. Children four, five, or six years old often worked in the factories twelve hours or more a day, and might in rush periods work eighteen. The lash had to be used, if only to keep these tots awake. At the end of the day the smaller ones might be collected from the corners where they had fallen exhausted. Accidents were under these conditions frequent. At night the children were locked in workhouses to keep them from escaping from this hell. Cotton mills had to be kept moist and the day’s work often left the mill hands soaked with sweat so that their clothes would freeze to their backs on the way home to their sleeping quarters. Frequently they were forced to take the midday meal while working, and frequently they had to clean the machines while in motion. Understandably, such work killed many of them, or deformed them, or left them tubercular wrecks. Cobbett had discovered that England’s manufacturing supremacy depended on 30,000 little girls. (S. Barr, Pilgrimage of the Western Man. p.256)
The Papal edicts from the sixth and seventh centuries called the Jews “a wicked sect, contaminated people” (in Bruno's lingo 'pestilential,' 'leprous' and 'excrements of Egypt') who followed a “perverse doctrine” (of creationism and geocentrism)

1) Roman Pytel just blew my mind.
"My question: Do you believe, like Copernicus, that the sun is a god? Can you remove this religious belief from his book without destroying the logic of the Renaissance religious revolution as reflected in The Revolutions (1,10)?"
That's an excellent question, Roman. Let's see how the moon bats worm their way out of THAT one!
By the way, I think you've written one of the most useful, cogent, and intelligent comments in this entire thread.
