Spring has Sprung

From our friend Bob Johnson at
Happy March Equinox!

It's comforting and reassuring to know that regardless of how mankind decides to foul things up on this beautiful and wonderful planet of ours, Nature and the designs in Nature continue on! No matter how much greed, cheating and violence mankind inflicts on itself, no matter how much God's gift to us of reason is neglected by us, Nature is unaffected and continues its steady progress! Natural occurrences and realities such as the equinox remind us of this fact as does this quote from Thomas Paine's outstanding book The Age of Reason:
"It is only in the CREATION that all our ideas and conceptions of a word of God can unite. The Creation speaketh an universal language, independently of human speech or human language, multiplied and various as they may be. It is an ever-existing original, which every man can read. It cannot be forged; it cannot be counterfeited; it cannot be lost; it cannot be altered; it cannot be suppressed. It does not depend upon the will of man whether it shall be published or not; it publishes itself from one end of the earth to the other. It preaches to all nations and to all worlds; and this word of God reveals to man all that is necessary for man to know of God."
Happy equinox and I hope you have a great spring or autumn depending on which hemisphere you live in!
