Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

Stirring it was on that stage to hear our headman, Bob Carr, at Hillsong defend diverse Australian life!

And heartwarming to hear the Christian crowd acclaim the need for Hindus, Moslems, Buddhists, Sikhs and all to be equally regarded as having worthwhile ways for humans to live and interpret the world, if we are to survive together on this fragile shell of habitable biosphere.

But saddening also the silence for those whose values and morals stand as firm-footedly strong on a non-religious base.
Also run as an exercise in the old-style declamation, keeping as far under the 200-word limit as possible.
