    Either way the garden is still beautiful. The latter just adds more beauty and a greater sense of purpose.

    No it doesn’t and you know it.

    There is beauty in chaos and chance. That is in essence, life itself.

    These plants in the garden have gone through millions of years of evolution through the chaos of life to one day be glanced at and understood by an understanding human. A human who appreciates the randomness and chaotic nature of life and how it can create beauty through pure chance.

    Not fuckin’ fairies or gods.

    So venomous my dear ian ( btw that is my name as well). And before you go off on some wild-tangent about how ” religus peeple are stooped!” I will have you know that i am an agnostic-theist. Why do you automatically assume that because i believe in gods that i do not appreciate the chaotic and random nature of our world and universe?

    If I were presented with incontrovertible evidence of a god tomorrow morning, it would only provide me with a target for ultimate universal retribution. Lucifer had the right idea; impeach God.

    you are a moron and a coward. i hate poeple like you, who can’t accept the word how it is, without any supernatural stories to make you feel good.

    I’m sorry but if you are so much smarter than Bstaples then why were you only capable of coming up with a scathing Ad-hominem? It’s assholes like you that give atheists a bad rep on the internet and in mainstream society.

    I think that’s pretty much the definition of a insane.

    Believing what you want to believe in instead of adapting to what actually is can be hazardous to your health.

    In that sense, I think it’s beautiful that stupid people will get what’s coming to them.
